This week, Ira Sternberg spoke with Carl Giammarese.
Carl Giammarese is a founding member of The Buckinghams, who will be performing June 23 at The Golden Nugget Las Vegas as part of its 52 Fridays Concert Series.
Giammarese began his music career as a founding member, lead guitarist and vocalist, in 1965. The Buckinghams were an important part of creating the sounds of American rock music after the
British invasion had arrived and changed everything.
The group enjoyed No. 1 status and other positions on Billboard’s music charts for 5 years. They released 15 hit singles and 4 albums that charted, and they toured nationally for five years..
