"This is actually a reworked and rewritten version of the Eagles 'Hotel California' and is quite simply a stroke of genius, I mean, anyone can do a cover version but this is far more than that, although the roots are still visible the rest of the hair has been coloured 'Pistolero'." - Martin Granville, Jace Media
"The Pistoleros are sheer musical escapism" – Malcolm Dome, Classic Rock Magazine
"Once in a while something special comes along and turns the musical world on its axis and makes you listen to music and lyrics in a totally different way. That something is Gypsy Pistoleros." - WeBleedMusic
"Gypsy Pistoleros are a thrill-a-minute collection of melodic eye-patch swagger that smells of exotic spices and forbidden concubines. The Gypsy Pistoleros sound like Hanoi Rocks, if Hanoi Rocks were sultans and snake charmers." - Sleazegrinder, Classic Rock Magazine

Imagine no more - The Gypsy Pistoleros will give it all to you, and you will love every minute of it and want to reach for a tequila shot" *****. - Michele Storm Hairspray Heaven

THE GREATEST HITS ALBUM IS OUT NOW!!!! GET IT HERE!!!
Gypsy Pistoleros are still something truly unique and interesting in today’s predictable musical landscape. A sound and style that mixed sleazy glam rock with flamenco influences and a shout out to Mexican folklore and Spanish tendencies.
Gypsy Pistoleros may be best described as being the ideal house band for the fictitious Titty Twister bar of Rodriguez’s From Dusk Til Dawn. Between the nods to Morricone’s tense, tumbleweed atmospheres and the Gypsy Kings’ manic Mediterranean energy, a New York Dolls raw glam spark and a surplus of prime G ’n’ R attitude!
The sound is flamenco in a head on collision with punk/rock riffs, pounding bass and thrashing drums. The songs span madly in the best rock 'n' roll tradition with big hooks, attitude, and sleaze. Yet those flamenco breaks got into your head and refused to leave - this hybrid rocks.
This mongrel offspring of fiery flamenco passion and gritty gutter glam, the Gypsy Pistoleros' were born roamin' somewhere between Barcelona and Birmingham, brought into the world to a soundtrack stack-heeled anthems of sleazy ‘70s America. Standing alone in musical ancestry and sum sound, they are one one of those most rare acts who can honestly claim the tag 'unique'
The insane inspiration came from frontman Lee Pistolero GLP, who struck on fusing his roots in the British glam punk circuit to the traditional flamenco/rumba sounds of Spain when living in Zaragoza and supporting Motorhead, The Ramones, Dio, Nazareth, The Cramps, Sepultura and U.F. O during the mid-90s., from stale-beer scented Midlands rock dives, to the majestic Med-coast just upwind of exotic Morocco.
