Marco Mendoza Biography

Marco Mendoza is an American musician who spent his formative years living with his grandmother in Tijuana , Mexico. He started playing the guitar at an early age, adopting the bass when he was invited to join a band that needed a player.

He played in John Sykes' band Blue Murder, from 1991 until 1993. Mendoza is the current bassist for the reformed version of Thin Lizzy. Mendoza joined the band in 1996 then left in 2000. From 2000 to 2003 he toured with Ted Nugent. Mendoza returned to Thin Lizzy in 2005, replacing Randy Gregg, and left again in 2007. He then toured with ex-Dokken guitarist George Lynch in his band Lynch Mob. He rejoined Thin Lizzy once more in May 2010 and will be touring in 2011.

Mendoza has also played for the band Soul SirkUS, and with a lot of other musicians from different backgrounds including: Suzy K, Right Said Fred, Robert Williams, Roch Voisine, Rafael Aragon, Debby Yeager, Tin Drum and Tommy Shaw, among others. In 2004 Mendoza toured with Whitesnake, yet another band that once featured Sykes (and also features Aldridge), and appears on their DVD “Live...In the Still of the Night.” In 2004, Mendoza guested on keyboardist Derek Sherinian's solo album “Mythology.”

On July 6, 2007, Mendoza released his first solo album Live For Tomorrow, through Frontiers Records in Europe. The record was produced and co-written by Richie Kotzen and features guest performances by Steve Lukather, Ted Nugent, Doug Aldrich, Tommy Aldridge, Brian Tichy, Marco Renteria (Jaguares), and others.

Mendoza’s latest album on Mascot Records, “Casa Mendoza,” is great melodic rock/hard rock with a sunny Latin flavor to it. The musicianship is top notch. Songs like “Suzy Q, You,” “Circle of Life,” “Betty Joe,” or “Get Ready” all are ready to infect the masses with their commercial sound.
