Tommy Geller

"Big hair, big guitars, big fun!" - Like a cartoon figure, who stucked here somewhere from the mid 80s - That’s his remarkable style which is already known by the young, Hungarian rock music scene.
He was born somewhere in the former Yugoslavia, coming from a family of well approved radio and TV journalists. His life was infected with music from the cradle, just to mention his parents collection of cca 3000 vinyl records, that he started discovering as early as he could walk a single step! Tommy studied playing on the piano at first, but once he had stolen his father’s guitar at the age of 11 and started scraping on the strings some famous riffs that he liked. Then he studied music, and as he adored to sing since his childhood, he consciously trained himself autodidactly to sing backing vocals.
Both on guitars and vocals he has contributed in different productions, released more studio LP-s with his other bands, organized some tribute concerts.
As Stardust, between Tommy and Mickey has a great musical chemistry, they have spooky similarity of melodical sense and therefore they love to work together. 
Maybe his former homeland is the sole reason why his heart beats faster for the southern, mediterranean landscapes and rocky mountains. In his free time he does swimming, hiking, mushroom picking, rock climbing, mountaneering, skiing and speargun fishing – in a word: 
he likes to get as closer to Mother Nature as it’s possible!
He’s a total fanatic of 80’s rock & pop music, the Adriatic seacoast and the Alps. Anyway, rumour has it he’s a real grill cooking master.
