Musician Tim Cappello, most notably known for his role as the oiled up and and muscle-bound "Sax Man" in The Lost Boys and more recently collaborating with Gunship on the song "Dark All Day," also has a pretty epic Wikipedia bio, with the site stating he's “notable for his muscular physique, his sexually provocative movements during his performances and for his tendency to perform shirtless, with his skin oiled and hair in a ponytail.”
Now, over 30 years after the release of The Lost Boys, Cappello has just released his very first solo album, titled Blood on the Reed. Over on Cappello's official website, you can purchase the album as an MP3 file or on CD, the latter of which can be signed and personalized for you. If you'd rather see him live, you'll be happy to know that he's taking the album on tour!

Cappello describes the album, "It’s definitely a rocker, but with a funky twist. It’s mostly classic songs I love to play live and twist them around a bit (and of course it includes a brand spanking new jammed-out version of I Still Believe)."
He adds. "This really is a labor of love for me. I played pretty much every note on the record with some notable exceptions. Joan Cappello sang the background vocals with me, and on I Still Believe, I had lots of help. Michael Mancini produced it and played keyboards. Sammy Merendino played the drums, and Glenn Alexander played guitar."
