BIOGRAPHY: Matt Mercado ripped up the Chicago scene in the early ‘90’s with local legends Daisy Chain, leading to a seven figure recording deal with Mercury Records (Kiss, Bon Jovi). The band changed its moniker to Mind Bomb and recorded their first CD under the production of Max Norman (Megadeth, Ozzy Osbourne). Mind Bomb went on to tour the US and Europe extensively opening for rock legends such as Kiss and Rob Halford. Mind Bomb also gained critical recognition and many major motion picture soundtracks including the classics Cliff Hanger -Sylvester Stalone & Kalifornia -Brad Pitt. In the late ‘90’s the discorded, Mind Bombers called it quits. Undaunted, Mercado formed regional faves, Pivot Man with the star studded Chicago rhythm section Gregg Potter (featured in January 2004 Modern Drummer), John Skender, and Sean Osteos who through their careers have shared the stage with legends such as Eddie Van Halen, Steve Stevens, and Rob Halford. In 1998, Pivot Man released their first CD, The Hor-Ned One and were subsequently signed to Mystic Records. Their 2001 follow up CD, Blood Monkey, was played heavily on MTV’s Road Rules and the Real World.
