Ross the Boss

Back in the day Ronnie James Dio introduced guitarist ‘Ross the Boss’ Friedman to Joey DeMaio, a meeting that would lead to the birth of the mighty Manowar. Talk about history being written! Ross the Boss is the legendary guitarist who was in Manowar from 1980-1989, featuring on their first six records - still their best, in our humble opinion. That’s why it gives us great pleasure to welcome this iconic guitarist to Alcatraz. Following his departure from Manowar he was involved in numerous other projects including The Dictators and The Brain Surgeons.
