I happened upon this video today, which shot me straight down memory lane. I was never able to see them live (they were in Florida, I was in Wisconsin raising a family), but through the magic of YouTube, I now finally get to see a video of my brother's band from back in the day.
Darrell still has the best hair in the whole fam-damly. He's on the far right, the tall, skinny guy with the black guitar and wavy, natural blond locks, with a solo at about 2:30 in.
Even if the music isn't your thing, it's fun to watch the hair show!
So whatever happened to the band? About the time they were gaining some popularity and local radio airplay, something happened that would forever alter the course of music history: Grunge.
The End (of hair metal, anyway).
He's still playing in his free time with my brother Russ and others, singing in the church choir, giving lessons, and now he's got a new gig that has taken him over to the far side, as in country music. What is the world coming to? ;)
