Their second album "Guitar Slingers Song & Dance" was released in 1996 and the third "That Little Something" two years later in 1998. All of their albums have peaked in the Finnish album charts top 20 and stayed there for several weeks. For years, both Jore and Ben enjoyed fame and fortune with the notorious Leningrad Cowboys but left the band in 1996 to concentrate solely on Guitar Slingers.

Throughout 1994-99 Guitar Slingers was the top AOR band in Finland and played hundreds of shows. They disbanded in 1999 when Ben decided to continue his solo career. Jore soon followed Ben's ways and became one of Finland’s top male solo artists. Ben toured Europe extensively with his own trio and later joined Wishbone Ash.

(Compilation) '99 SON Collections (Best of) '07 SONY BMG 2) Guitar Slingers are a 4 piece Psychobilly/Rockabilly Surf band from UK/France, founded by Doyle (guitarist of Klingonz and Demented Are Go!. The Guitar Slingers project started in the mid 1990s and with help from a lot of friends Doyle put together his debut album "One Man Freakshow" It received 5/5 from Big cheese Mag and 5***** from Rockabilly Mag USA. It was 13 original tracks writtin by himself & Strangy, and a lot of help from top bass player and friend Fantomas! He still didnt have a band together just the tracks put down from my studio so he called in help from guitar assassian Jean Mi-hell, Gaybaul on drums! and together with Fantomas on bass they had the Guitar Slingers line up for gigs. During this time the 2nd album was recorded "Six String Bandit" 13 tracks of mostly cover songs and more guests on it than you can shake a stick at receiving 4/5 in the mighty Big Cheese mag reviewed by Simon Nott, they done a short Finnish tour and then an open air festival in Spain. They had a slight lineup change as Fantomas moved to USA so Karl stood in to do a short German tour and Simon Farrell for the French tour supporting the famous Sanserveno.
