Nobody quite knew what to think of longhaired, tattooed bikers singing such soulful, yet ballsy, rock music. While their image may have been at odds with their music, it definitely suited the live show.
The band was formed in Los Angeles, California in 1987 by Ron Young (vocalist), Apache (guitar), Louren Molinare (guitar), Fidel Paniagua (bass) and Tom Morris (drums).
They first appeared on Metal Blade’s Street Survivors compilation before releasing a four song EP called Name Your Poison. They opened for Jane’s Addiction, headlined some of their own club shows, and even appeared on TV’s Unsolved Mysteries which helped them get signed to Geffen whom released their cover of Aretha Franklin hit, “Chain Of Fools”, as the debut single.
