Richie Ranno

Richie Ranno was a lead guitarist of 1970s band Starz - and like a lot of 70s bands, Starz were a big influence on 80s rock bands who turned out to be more 'famous' than their mentors. Starz’s mixture of heavy rock and power pop on their debut, “Starz,” (1976) “Violation,” (1977) “Attention Shoppers” (1977) and “Coliseum Rock” and their live effort, “Live in Action” (both 1978), underscore the fact that they are under-appreciated though hailed as a template for bands that followed. Kerrang magazine put the first two Starz albums on its list of the most important Heavy Metal albums of all time.
