BILLY STOKES is a rock guitarist & songwriter from Tucson, Arizona.  He went to So Cal and tried to make it but ended up in the military... the army to be exact.  He traded his guitar for a gun and found himself in Germany. In 1997, Billy Stokes was injured in the line of duty. When he was released from the hospital he decided to pick up where he left off decades before and began writing the songs that appear on his powerful album Muscle & Blood. The album features rock legends … Frank Marino, Pat Travers, Les Dudek, Barry Sparks, and Marc Storace of the Swiss rock giant Krokus. The album received the Producers Choice Awards 2020 Best Rock Album.

Pat Travers plays lead guitar on the songs “Firestorm” and “Money Slave” while Les Dudek plays lead guitar on “Down On Me” and “Fort Stockton Boogie.”  The amazing Frank Marino of Mahogany Rush plays lead guitar on “The Beast.”  Storace sings all 16 songs including the Robin Trower classic “Twice Removed From Yesterday.”

Guitarist Billy Stokes has also worked with Legendary Drummers Carmine and Vinny Appice, Heavy Metal Bassist Rudy Sarzo and Drumming great Corky Laing.

Stokes recently teamed up with Mike Varney producer, guitarist, and label owner. They are scheduled to record a new album with such greats as drummer Ansley Dunbar and special guests. They are finalizing the song arrangements and are very excited.

On a personal note, Billy recently rescued his in laws from the Ukraine....
