    I don't know if they did more than one album but I have "Piece Of Your Soul" and it's incredibly good. Excellent vocals, guitaring, songwriting, production... it has it all.

    Never heard them before but right away I can hear why. FM radio still made bands and with Play centralized programming
    lists they sound too much like the Crows. I can see CC going great stuff but we have that sound already.

    Zebra. Too late to establish themselves as a prog band, and more mainstream hard rock than hair metal, 1983 was just the wrong time to release their debut album, produced my none other than Jack Douglas. They are still together and active, though.

    Big Hat - Audley Freed, Peter Stroud, Robert Kerns from Sheryl Crows band

    I know it was just a side EP project, but it would be nice to hear more and get a tour rolling.

    I had the chance to open for The Producers a couple of times back in the early 80's. They were as good or better than anything on MTV at the time but never quite got over the top. They were really nice guys as well.

    They're still playing and still sound great. See them if you get the chance.

    Turn on a classic rock station, it is micro managed by tempo and key let alone style. Quotas all over. There is to the powers that be who use market research not the heart

    The album John Corabi did with The Scream was far better than the Crüe album. Another album released at “the wrong time”.
    I actually got to see them play in Austin, at The Backroom, in early ‘92. Great rock(not hair metal) band. Bruce Boulliet was playing a Les Paul through old Marshalls and still had his same “sonic signature” he had in Racer X.(that was eye opening)

    Agreed. The Scream record was excellent. That's why I got so excited when I heard that Crue was doing an album with Corabi, because Vince was always the weak link in that band.

    I saw Corabi at a club on LI a couple of years ago, and he did the Crue record in its entirety. Nailed it.

    I went in thinking that the entire show would stand or fall with the drumming (Crabs' vocals were never even a question), because Tommy Lee was an absolute beast on that record. The drummer got as close as he could get without actually being Tommy Lee.

    Turns out the drummer was Corabi's son. Impressive.

    I always thought the Riverdogs, from their 1st album should have been bigger, they had great songs.

    Always sort of bummed that Nuno Bettencourt in his solo career isn't bigger, I think his material is just great and he's a great singer....

    Good tune! I never heard of them, but I'm a sucker for songs with the word 'hello' in the chorus.

    And that reminds me of another STP side project....

    What little I’ve heard from Badlands made me think there was something there..... it was some live concert footage.
