  • Canadian born vocalist, writer, guitarist and drummer Leslie Knauer was already a gold and platinum recording artist when she joined Precious Metal. Her previous band Promises, formed with her brothers Benny and Jed, had released two albums in Australia and New Zealand, containing several hits including the #1 platinum smash “Baby, It’s You”, covered in 2014 by the Australian band The Chantoozies, whose video includes appearances by Hugh Jackman, Eric Bans and Anthony LaPaglia. When Promises disbanded, a solo deal with Capitol Records went south but only after Leslie penned “This Girl” with Joey Carbone and Ritchie Zito. “This Girl” was covered by the popular Dutch group the “Dollie Dots” and charted all over Europe. Leslie joined the Sunset Strip band Roxy Roller with guitarist Lizzie Grey, drummer Dane Rage, (both of London fame), and bassist Randy St. Clair. Roxy Roller recorded one single, a cover of Cole Porter’s “Anything Goes”. After answering Susette Andres’ ad for female rock chicks, Leslie went on to record five more albums as the lead vocalist for Precious Metal, touring extensively with the band for the next 9 years. Forming the power **** Kanary in 1996 as vocalist and guitarist, Leslie performed with bass player Mary Kay and drummer Tony Matteucci (Quiet Riot, Paul Shortino, Etta James). Kanary released five records before disbanding in 2008. Two Kanary tracks were used in the Dennis Hopper movie “Choke” (2000) – Kanary (Invincible) and Hullaballoo House , (***** Church of The Ugly Man). The “Invincible” track “I Can’t Even Think about Getting Married” was featured on the first Los Angeles Women in Music Compilation album (1999). In 1997 Leslie joined Power Stripper as drummer/vocalist. She is currently vocalist and rhythm guitar player for Naked Hand Dance. Leslie has one daughter - actress, writer, blogger and producer Alexi Wasser - and lives happily in Hollywood with her boyfriend Al TeMan. See her onstage with Precious Metal this Saturday, Dec 9 2017 at 9:30pm at The World Famous Whisky A GoGo on Sunset Blvd, Hollywood, CA.
  • Alex hailed from Wigan, England - the home of Northern Soul - and made her way to Hollywood where she studied at the newly opened Bass Institute of Technology under Tim Bogart (Vanilla Fudge). Three years after joining Aviva Maloney as a Filthy Filthette at the legendary Filthy McNasty's club on Sunset Blvd, Alex answered Susette's ad for a female bass player and Precious Metal was 1/3 formed! Twenty years after leaving the band and three years after her double mastectomy and 10 chemotherapy treatments, Alex reunited the girls for a breast cancer fundraiser in 2014 - they have continued to kick *** together ever since! Next *** kicking - this Saturday, Dec 9th 9:30 pm at The The Whisky A GoGo, followed by Missing Persons with Dale Bozzio. For tickets - https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2945168
