Skid Row: This is the story of Skid Row... In 1987 SKID ROW was born in a garage somewhere in Toms River, N.J. Like a bastard child of a thousand maniacs, they relentlessly pounded the New Jersey club circuit; packing houses wherever they performed. Fast forward to 1989. SKID ROW's debut album goes on to sell over 5 million copies in the U.S.A. along with a tour that takes them around the world. 1992 the band releases their second record SLAVE TO THE GRIND which debuts at ..1 on the Billboard charts. Making them the first Heavy metal/Hard rock band to do so. Slave rockets to multi-platinum status. This is also followed by a massive world tour. In 1995 band relationships severely strain, but they reluctantly go into the studio to record what was thought to be their final release SUBHUMAN RACE. Soon after, the band parted ways. That was until late 1999 when founding members Rachel Bolan, Scotti Hill, and Snake Sabo decided that SKID ROW meant far to much to them let the music fade into rock obscurity. There were changes to be made the question was who. Enter Texan singer Johnny Solinger. Suggested through a mutual friend the band visited Johnnys website and were immediatley interested in what they heard. A few e-mails later and the singer was on a plane to N.J. He had a quiet confidence about him when he walked through the front door says guitarist Snake. Rachel adds We knew he was the guy half way through the first song of his audition. Johnny fit the bill to a T. Great voice, great attitude and was clear on what the band was about. With a new frontman in place the band needed a rock solid drummer. They turned to Atlanta native Dave Gara. Dave came into rehearsal and started playing and everything felt right. It was like he had been in the band forever. explains guitarist Scotti Hill. If they thought things couldn’t get better, they did. In 2000 SKID ROW landed the coveted opening slot on the KISS Farewell Tour. The tour of tours. It brought SKID ROW's music back to the hungry masses. Since then the band has logged a few hundred thousand bus miles and some 350 shows during which the band was busy writing new songs for their cd Thickskin that was released in 2003. That album put SKID ROWs past in perspective and future in place. SKID ROW’s new CD, REVOLUTIONS PER MINUTE, was released worldwide on October 24th, 2006 through SPV records. The band will be touring worldwide throughout 2007.

Warrant: Call them what you will – glam metal, heavy metal pop, Sunset Strip lighter-raising stadium balladry… in the end, Warrant is a rock band. Exploding out of Los Angeles in 1984, the legendary group features Jani Lane on vocals, Joey Allen and Erik Turner on guitars, Jerry Dixon on bass and Steven Sweet on drums. On their chart-topping 1989 debut, Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich, the band offered an audacious and meaty collection of catchy metal riffs, including rock anthems like “Down Boys” and the chart-topping ballads “Sometimes She Cries” and “Heaven.” Warrant supported the album’s release with a colossal world tour, and followed up by releasing Cherry Pie in 1990. The album was an instant hit, and with its power-packed emotion and in-your-face trashy fun (featuring such Top 10 hits as “I Saw Red” and “Cherry Pie”,) the fanbase grew even larger.

Even after the death of lead vocalist Jani Lane, Warrant continues to tour the country with former Lynch Mob vocalist Robert Mason taking over singing duties.

L.A. Guns: L.A. Guns got their start on Los Angeles ' Sunset Strip more than 15 years ago. The band was formed in 1986 and signed with Polygram Records in 1987, recording their first album that summer. This first album, titled “L.A. Guns”, went on to sell 750,000 copies and earned the band its first gold album award. Tours with AC/DC , Iron Maiden , and Def Leppard followed. A compilation of the videos made from this first album also earned the band a gold video award. L.A. Guns went into the studio to record their second album, “Cocked and Loaded”, in the spring of 1989. It was a hit right away with the release of “Rip and Tear” as the first single and video. “Never Enough” and “The Ballad of Jayne” followed, pushing album sales over 1,000,000 and earning the band its first platinum record award. The video compilation from this album earned the band its second gold video award. A successful world tour followed. The band's third album, “Hollywood Vampires”, was recorded in the fall of 1990. With the release of “Kiss My Love Goodbye” as the first single and video, and another successful world tour, the album went on to sell 700,000 copies and earned the band its third gold album award.

The band went back into the studio in 1994 to start work on their next album “Vicious Circle”. It was released in early 1995 and was followed by another successful world tour. Between 1996 and 1999, the band's members branched out recording and working on outside projects. In late 1999, L.A. Guns went into the studio to record a greatest hits package titled “Black Beauties” that also included five new songs written for the album. The band toured with Poison, Ratt, and others throughout the summer of 2000. In 2001, the band released its sixth studio album, “Man in the Moon”. The band also changed bass players with Adam Hamilton joining. A successful world tour followed. The reviews of the album were great and the band was determined to follow this up with an even stronger set of songs for the next release.

L.A. Guns entered the studio for their seventh album in early 2002 with veteran producer Andy Johns, who had worked with the likes of Led Zeppelin and Van Halen , to record “Waking the Dead”. The album was released in late 2002 and garnered LAG some of the best reviews the band had ever received. It was also when Tracii Guns decided to work on outside projects as well as some solo material. That same year, L.A. Guns acquired Stacey Blades to handle the guitar slot. Blades had been around the L.A. music scene for many years recording and playing lead guitar in both Roxx Gang and Smack. He fit the bill perfectly coming from the same school of rock that LAG was from.

After a 2003 world tour to support “Waking the Dead”, L.A. Guns went into the studio during the summer of 2004 to record “Rips the Covers Off” with producer Andy Johns. This was a collection of 70's rock songs that the band grew up listening to. Once again, the band went on a full world tour to support the new CD. In January of 2005, L.A. Guns began work on “Tales from the Strip” with Andy Johns again producing. The “Tales” CD was released August 2005. Reviews were great with many saying it was some of the best music out today. LAG hooked up with WASP for a late summer, early fall tour. In early 2006, LAG did some local L.A . shows and recorded them for a new live CD. This new live CD, “Loud and Dangerous”, was released late August 2006 with the band again supporting it with a world tour. Look for “Loud and Dangerous” and L.A. Guns on the road in 2007.
