Neil Thomas Giraldo was born on December twenty-ninth 1955. Neil was born in Cleveland, Ohio. Neil was into music at a very young age and played guitar for the first time at the age of six years old! He first performed to the public at the age of twelve and his first professional job was with Rick Derringer Playing the keyboard. After tiring of Playing keyboards Neil moved to New York where he was hooked up with Pat. He then became the bands lead guitarist before the album In the Heat of the Night.
Since that first album Neil has had a huge influence on the band and the way their music sounds, He and Pat have collaborated on much of their music and Neil has produced music for others as well, including the movie smile. Neil married Pat on February 20, 1982 and they now have two daughters, Haley Egeana Giraldo and Hana Juliana Giraldo. Neil has helped write as well as produce much of the bands music since Crimes of Passion and He and Pat will always in my mind be the BEST rockers, EVER!!!
