Carlos Guitarlos born, Carlos Daniel Ayala in 1950, Carlos grew up in the northeast Los Angeles community of Cypress Park.
In 1980 at age 30 co-founded the infamous LA band, Top Jimmy and the Rhythm Pigs. The Band became known for their raucous shows and heavy drinking and developed a devoted following on the 1980’s Los Angeles club scene. In the 90’s with the band dissolved, Carlos relocated to San Francisco where he played on the streets. After the death of his band mate Top Jimmy in 2001 and his own near death from years of hard living, Carlos is now clean and sober and his playing is better than ever.
Last night’s show at Liquid Kitty saw Carlos with a new band, a new CD and a great and thriving energy. His new CD, Hell Can Wait has charted at #1 on the XM Satellite Radio Blues chart.
Carlos Guitarlos returns to Liquid Kitty on February 5th
