After over 40 years of recording and performing, Michael Des Barres has returned to his mid-Sixties roots with ‘Carnaby Street’, his first new album in many years. Revisiting his youth in swinging London, ‘Carnaby Street’ is an aural window into rock and roll’s past through the eyes and mind of Michael Des Barres
British born the Marquis Michael Philip Des Barres, along with his excursions into rock stardom, is also a gifted actor and is best known for his recurring role as Murdoc on the popular television show ‘MacGyver’
He has been featured in dozens of movies and television shows over the past 40 years (including Seinfeld, Melrose Place, Frasier, Bones, Ellen, Nip/Tuck and Pink Cadillac with Clint Eastwood) and was also a featured actor in the ’60s classic movie ‘To Sir, With Love’ starring Sidney Poitier. Michael was formerly married to GTO’s member Pamela Des Barres, best known for her top-selling book ‘I’m With The Band’.
Recently, Michael Des Barres reunited with Silverhead for the first time in 38 years and performed to sold out audiences in Japan in April 2012. The reaction from the Japanese audience was electric! Michael is still acting and will appear on the CBS show ‘NCIS’ in October 2012. He is also featured in the movie ‘California Solo’, in which Michael plays the manager of Robert Carlyle’s ex-rocker character. The movie premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in early 2012, and will be released theatrically in the fall
