If you’re a fan of 80’s hard rock, chances are that you heard Terry Ilous‘ voice and might not even be aware. He rose to fame with the French-based XYZ and released two albums with the band, before they were swallowed by the grunge movement in the early 90’s. They have since reformed, and continue to do shows across North America and Europe.

Terry is also known for his time with Great White, after they split with original singer Jack Russell. Together, they released two critically acclaimed albums, 2012’s “Elation” and 2017’s “Full Circle.” Sadly, Terry was replaced in 2018 by Mitch Malloy, and it was time for him to pursue other adventures.

Since 2018, Terry has done a lot of voice-over work, performed solo and with The Vagabonds, and released a solo album containing flamenco versions of classic rock songs, such as “Whole Lotta Love,” “Kill the King,” “Love Bites” and more. At the tail end of 2021, one of his most ambitious endeavors finally came to fruition, with the release of the self-titled Land of Gypsies debut. The band’s lineup is completed by Serge Simic on guitars, Fabrizio “Fab” Grossi on bass, AJ Morra on drums and Eric Ragno on keyboards. Jeff Northrup helped with lyrics and provided additional guitars on the track “Somewhere Down The Line”.

The ever positive and enthusiastic Terry sat down with Rodrigo Altaf to discuss the Land of Gypsies debut, future plans and much more.
