Guitarist Michael Lee was born in San Antonio, Texas & weened on hard rock and heavy metal… Favorite influences were Judas Priest, Van Halen, AC/DC, Styx, Night Ranger, and Def Leppard. The 80s bug bit him hard– and has since never let go…
A champion of the stage, he studied acting and theatre in London at The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. But graduating with a degree in Advertising, he went on to film and video
pursuits… leaving his passion for music and acting behind.
As a television writer, editor, and Emmy-nominated
producer, he’s produced “The E! True Hollywood Story,” “TV Tales,” “Rank,” “Fashion Emergency” and “Wild On” for E! Networks, “Texas Justice” for Fox, and locally, “The Debra Duncan Show” for ABC/Buena Vista Television. And a host of sports events and travelogues for national cable
And Mike has done his part professionally to keep the 80s alive. Producing a special “Back To The Eighties” tribute in 2002, he brought the original band, Berlin, to Houston to perform on the show. (Hey, where do you think “Bands Reunited” got their inspiration?) And in 1999, he co-produced the reunion concert of The Go-Go’s live from NYC. (yes, Belinda Carlisle fell in love with him… how could she resist?)
In 2003, after returning from another TV stint in LA, he formed The Lost Boys to bring the “80s Retro Wave” of West Hollywood back east to the Bayou City. The band represents an opportunity to return to his musical roots while remaining at home in the entertainment spotlight.
