This week’s Pick of the Week was created and ordered by customer Enzo Penizzotto. He is currently the bass player in The Bebe Buell Band (Bebe is Liv Tyler’s mother). The band consists of Bebe on vocals, Jim Walls (Das Damen) & Pete Marshall on guitar (Iggy Pop, Samhain), Zac Lasher (U-Melt) on keys, Louisa Mysteria Bradshaw (Angels are jealous of her singing voice) on backgrounds and New Jersey’s own Sarah Tomek on drums. They have a new album called “Hard Love” – the pick stems from the album artwork. Enzo played with Bebe back in 1998-2000 before joining up with joan jett in 2000. He reunited with her last year in July. Other artists that Enzo has worked with include joan jett (2000-2010), the Batusis (with Cheetah Chrome from the Dead Boys and Sylvain Sylvain from the New York Dolls), played on the newest Beggars & Thieves “We are the Broken Hearted” album recently released on Frontiers label, also Eddie Sperry’s Screed the Psychological Profile album.  In his downtime while at home, Enzo also subs on a Broadway musical show called Memphis. And he teaches from time to time at The School of Rock in Manhattan.  He was a founding member of his own band Speed McQueen, which he started at 19 with Mark Lewis (produced Fly Leaf) on guitar/vocals and Joey Crifo on drums. Speed McQueen was picked up by Mercury records and had records produced by Tim Patalan (Sponge) and Ed Stasium (Ramones, Rolling Stones, etc) and toured extensively. Enzo was born in New York City and still lives there. He has been playing the bass since he was 14 years old. Professionally since he was 19 years old. Enzo says that he has been using Clayton picks forever, specifically the Acetal Rounded Triangle in a 1mm gauge. Find out more about Enzo and his career  at www.enzopenizzotto.com. We thought that the Hard Love picks were a perfect feature design for the day after Valentine’s Day!
