The one time I saw them was at a small club in Sac.  Won the tickets of the local radio station via my supreme Yes knowledge.  Very fun show.

Hurricane - I'm Onto You

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DssSCNufJ5U

Apparently this band was fronted by current Foreigner singer Kelly Hansen.  It also featured two metal giants' younger brothers, Robert Sarzo and Tony Cavazo.  Funny enough, Rudy's brother played guitar and Carlos' brother played bass.

I noticed earlier you mentioned Black&Blue.  They were the only band I ever saw that got bood off the stage.  They were opening for Triumph and all the fans were way to impatient and rowdy drunk for Triumph.  When Black&Blue came out for their encore, the crowd bood so much that the lead singer threw down the mike, gave the crowd the ol' one finger salute, and stormed off.  We all cheered, loudly.

It was on the Thunder Seven tour, when Triumph was about as big as they were gonna get.  All through Black&Blue's set, there were guys parading huge Triumph banners around the arena.  It was quite likeley the most 80's moment I had in the 80's.  Many years later, I felt a little bad for them, but at the time(I was 17 or 18), I was loaded with beer and teenage angst and didn't give a shit.

Kix - Cold Blood

I've opened for Steve whiteman's band, Funny Money several times and the guy is a bit of a self important douchebag.  Or at least he comes off that way.  Either way, this is a great tune.

HA!  That also happended to Fastway opening for Rush in 1984 for the GUP tour I saw.  I also saw Triumph on the Thunder 7 tour but Mountain opened up and.......they......SUCKED.  They were fighting on stage and sounded like crap.

Actually, let me go even more obscure than that and see if I can stump even Cozmo with these guys:  Die Happy - Perpetual Motion

Without looking it up, do you know the Badlands tie-in?

Another one from them that is probably even better:  Temple of Soul

As suggested by lonestar, some April Wine - Roller

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12WzAeKZ4aA

Another, that's a fave of mine, Sign of the Gypsy Queen

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l38CIbuOPHw

This is a great album!

Wow.. what memories brought up in this thread. Lots of bands that I had seen...Black n Blue, Warlock, House Of Lords, Hurricane...

I never saw WASP, unfortunately.

And wki, good call on the Warlord!
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related
Winger Theater Forums........or WTF.  ;D
TAC got a higher score than me in the electronic round? Honestly, can I just drop out now? :lol

I'm getting much more into them, especially on the urging of a good friend of mine.  A singer in a few of the bands I was in, plus a hair metal fan, who just happens to be a big L.A. Guns fan also.  I also grabbed the "Meniketti" album from iTunes as well.  Really good disc, as bosk has said many times.  Dave's voice sounds great and there's some really excellent soloing as well.

Not a song recommendation, but in other news, I finally moved my gig directory to my online Google Maps.

https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&gl=us&ie=UTF8&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=115871855234909793954.000482146cef673eecc8c&z=3

I basically went through and pinpointed every place I've ever played.  IF I have forgotten any, it's no more than 2-3, if even that.  There were a few I couldn't remember the names of, but I marked them anyway.  One, we didn't actually PLAY there, I just marked it for coolness, as it was an interesting part of our travels.  Probably 90% of these gigs were with the Kiss tribute, Cold Gin.
