Frank DiMino is best known to millions of people as the lead singer of 70s iconic rock group ANGEL. Known for their elaborate stage show and all-white costumes, Casablanca Records signed ANGEL to a multi-album deal upon the recommendation of KISS without even hearing the band play. They released six albums for Casablanca and toured non-stop playing American arenas with Aerosmith, Rush, Journey, Styx, Ted Nugent, and others. A highly successful Japanese tour would include two nights headlining the legendary Budokan and being greeted with “Beatlemania-like” fans at the airport. ANGEL appeared on the television shows American Bandstand, Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert, and the 1980 United Artists film Foxes. Years later after ANGEL disbanded a revamped version of the group was formed with several new members. This resulted in a new album and live shows in Europe and America.
During the 80s Frank became an in-demand session singer and worked with megaproducer Giorgio Moroder. It was during this time he received a platinum album for his vocal contr
ibution on the soundtrack to the 1983 Paramount Pictures hit movie Flashdance. He later recorded with Loudness, King Kobra, Sparks, Paul Raymond (UFO), performed on several tribute albums, and secured multiple television placements for his songs. Frank DiMino continues to perform live as much as possible and some of his projects have included Oz Fox (Stryper), Jimmy Crespo (Aerosmith, Rod Stewart), members from Ace Frehley’s band, and Armored Saint. He also appeared in the hit show Raiding The Rock Vault on the Las Vegas Strip. In addition to studio work and live performing Frank is a well-respected voice teacher and occasionally lends his services to Rock & Roll Fantasy Camp.
In 2015 Frank DiMino released his first solo album Old Habits Die Hard under the moniker DIMINO on Frontiers Records. The melodic hard rock album was produced by Paul Crook (Meat Loaf, Anthrax) and includes several guests such as Oz Fox (Stryper), Eddie Ojeda (Twisted Sister), Rickey Medlocke (Blackfoot, Lynyrd Skynyrd), Pat Thrall (Hughes/Thrall), former ANGEL bandmate Punky Meadows, Jeff Duncan (Armored Saint), along with members from Meat Loaf’s band. The album includes the singles “Rocking In The City” and “Never Again”. The video for “Never Again” features Punky Meadows on lead guitar.
