Recent press from the Cleveland Exhibit
Cleveland native Michael Cartellone has had quite a career in rock and roll. He first started out in the music industry as the drummer for Tommy Shaw’s solo band. That eventually led him to join the supergroup Damn Yankees. The multi-platinum selling group featured Shaw from Styx (guitar, vocals), Jack Blades from Night Ranger (bass, vocals) and Ted Nugent (guitar, vocals) and Cartellone (drums).
Lynyrd Skynyrd drummer Michael Cartellone received a good dose of art while growing up in Cleveland. As a kid, he took a field trip to the Salvador Dali Museum, which was based here at the time, and had an epiphany.
