Angel was formed in 1975 in Washington, DC by Punky (Edwin Lionel) Meadows who came from the band "The Cherry People" and later "Bux". Gregg Giuffria had been with the band "David and the Giants" a band that also featured Tommy Aldridge on drums. Mickey Jones was the original bassist but was replaced by Felix Robinson in 1977. Frank DiMino came from Massachusetts and has been listed as an influence by many local acts.

Casablanca signed them after Gene Simmons of "Kiss" saw them perform. They were voted the best new band in 1976 by Circus magazine. Over the years, the band toured the world with such 70s hard rock legends as, Humble Pie and Mahogany Rush. In 1980 they recorded "20th Century Foxes" and "Virginia" for the movie "Foxes".

After Angel folded in 1981, Gregg Giuffria went on to form the band Giuffria until 1987 and then the House of Lords, which continued on until 1993. Felix Robinson played on the White Lion debut album, "Fight to Survive". Angel reformed in the late 90s with Richard Marcello on guitar, Randy Gregg on bass and Gordon G. G. Gerbert on keyboards. Gordon G. G. Gerbert left the band in 2002. The band's 1999 release "In the Beginning" has guest appearances by Punky Meadows and Felix Robinson.

Mickey Jones formed the L.A. band Empire (which included L.A. Guns drummer Steve Riley), in which he handled lead vocals. Over the years, Mickie became interested in film production and later worked in the film industry. He died in 2009 of cancer.
