There he joined Michael Monroe's band and played guitar in Michael's solo album "Not Fakin' It". Nasty also met Timo Kaltio there and they decided to form a new band. They tested local musicians but when they bumbed into Les Riggs and Mike Finn they hired them. This was the first version of Cheap And Nasty. They made a few concerts with this line-up in California until authorities noticed that Nasty didn't have a working permit. Because of this lapse Nasty had to take the first flight back to Europe.
