We have a very special Star Chamber Show this Wednesday at 9pm EST, featuring recording artist and performer G Tom Mac! 

In writing, singing & creating the masterpiece "Cry Little Sister" as the theme song to the now classic film "THE LOST BOYS," GERARD McMANN hit a deep & provocative nerve in his career as both a recording artist & live performer.

Only thing was, when the film released in 1987, he was fed up with the music scene's "business" and stopped touring. He then changed his name to G TOM MAC as a result of no one ever pronouncing his real name correctly.

Born in Birmingham, England, Gerard spent his early years listening to The Beatles, David Bowie & Stevie Wonder. “I was inspired by various pop and R&B artists at an early age.” His family moved from England to New York City when Gerard was 11 and then a few years later moved to the Midwest. “When I was there I started learning guitar and the bass and realizing I had a voice, I started a band which played in clubs all over the Midwest.”

G TOM MAC went on to write songs for legendary singers such as Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin and Roger Daltrey of The Who. An array of contemporary Hip Hop artists, such as Ice Cube and Digable Planets, as well as KISS, Carly Simon and Eminem started to cover G Tom Mac's songs. Last year G Tom Mac earned a Grammy on Eminem’s "RECOVERY" album in which Eminem sampled him in the song "You're Never Over." Having had songs in over 50 films including Chasing Amy, Banger Sisters, No Way Home & more than 100 TV shows including Vampire Diaries, Scrubs, and the Big Bang Theory that still continue to license G Tom Mac's music.
