Guitarist Curtis brings all the attitude and swagger of guitarist Andy Taylor.

Turn Me Loose

Turn Me Loose was originally the idea of Michael "Zippy" Twombly from Music Zirconia. While the guitarist was working with MZ tributes - Micheal thought the guitarist looked a lot like Paul Dean. After talking with the members of Planet Earth - A tribute to Duran Duran, it was agreed to use the existing band, slot in the new guitarist and re-brand the band, calling it Turn Me Loose.
