Winger, formed in 1987, soared to immediate success with their 1988 self-titled release. The album spawned the hit singles Seventeen and Headed for a Heartbreak and achieved platinum sales status. Winger also stayed on the Billboard Top 200 chart for over 60 weeks, where it peaked at No. 21. Their next album, In The Heart Of The Young, also achieved platinum status. The band went on hiatus in 1994 following the release of their critically acclaimed third album Pull. The band reunited in 2001 and continues to tour and put out albums.
FireHouse has produced gold, platinum, and multi-platinum records in the United States and countries abroad. Their self-titled first album was released in 1990.
In December 2011, Jack Russell’s Great White first bared its teeth. Robby Lochner has been with Jack since its inception, they soon welcomed back longtime bassist and friend Tony Montana — this time as a guitar player and keyboardist — they added drummer Dicki Fliszar, then bassist Dan McNay. This group has a new album ready, boasting the bluesy hard rock stomp that made Russell and Montana icons in the first place.
SteelHeart’s self-titled debut album was released in 1990 and brought the group almost immediate commercial success. The album reached No. 40 on the Billboard 200 chart in 1990, being certified gold by the RIAA in 1991. The power ballad She’s Gone hit No. 1 on the international charts, staying there for 17 weeks.
