It’s that time of the week again.
Get your hair metal juices flowing.
This week’s song is from Badlands. The song is “Dreams In The Dark”
Badlands was a blue-based super group (of sort) that was formed in the 80s. They had one or two well known songs by the hard rock/heavy metal fans, but they made little impact to the general public.
The band consisted of
Ray Gillen – Vocals
Jake E. Lee – Guitar
Eric Singer – Drums
Greg Chaisson – Bass
Unfortunately, the band ultimately disbanded after the untimely death of lead singer Ray Gillen. Jake E Lee continues to make music today in various bands, and also recording solo. Lee also played in Ozzy’s band. Eric Singer is now the drummer in KISS.
I used to love this band. I had their self-titled debut album on cassette tape. When it was time (years later) to try to get this on CD I found that it is out of print. Just did a quick search for it on Amazon, and you can buy the CD for $72.74 WHAT!!!.
Well, enjoy Badlands for free on Rocknyc for FREE. See ya next week!
