Before he made it famous as a magician, back in the 80s Criss Angel was trying to make it famous at something else. Click below to see what it was....

Wow, it's like ninth-rate White Lion without Vito! The time spent on the staging and "tricks" would have been far better invested in improving the musical performance.

It all makes perfect sense to me now that I’ve seen the video. But I had no idea that he was ever in a band (or a solo act with his own band backing him). I just assumed that he always tried to make it as a magician as opposed to some 80s magician\hard-rock hybrid.

I remember seeing a couple of local bands back in the 80s that were trying to combine the magic\hard-rock\glam band thing. I always gave them kudos for trying to do something different, but to me it always seemed to come off as some kind of magic show in between songs and the combo never seemed to gel organically. As far as I know I think Alice Cooper pulled off that type of combination the best (guillotine, impalement, hanging from a noose, etc), because he did it in a way that made it all mix together (shock theater) and not seem like two different types of shows crammed together on the same stage.

Obviously Criss made the right decision to stick with a career in magic and not music. He’s a much better magician than he was a singer.
