BADLANDS – DREAMS IN THE DARK – FROM THE VAULT

Support: Today we take a trip back to 1989, to the self titled first album by Badlands released on Atlantic Records and the track, Dreams In The Dark. The album which features Ray Gillen – vocals, Eric Singer – drums, Jake E. Lee – guitars and Greg Chaisson – bass was one of the best breakout albums selling 400,000 copies by 1990 and landed them on the Billboard Chart at number 57. The video for Dreams In The Dark, was also played in heavy rotation on MTV. The band released their second album Voodoo Highway in 1991 but the band lineup had changed due to Eric Singer leaving to join Paul Stanley on his solo tour, which  led to his future role in KISS, after the death of Eric Carr. Gillen and Lee’s friendship began to fall apart and Gillen was eventually fired. Although Lee tried to keep the band going, they eventually disbanded. Gillen who had been diagnosed with HIV, passed away in 1993. Jake E. Lee formed Red Dragon Cartel in 2013 and also has an extensive solo career. Greg Chaisson still plays with original and cover bands and coaches and teaches baseball in Arizona. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIIfu5MTebU Support: Have you seen these yet?

Support: In an interview with the Las Vegas Sun, Vince Neil confirmed after many weeks of speculation that Motley Crue will join forces on a co-headlining tour this June to September. Neil said: “It’s going to be really cool because KISS is bringing their full stage show, and Motley will be bringing our full stage show,”Neal revealed to Robin Leach. “So, you are going to see two huge headliners at the same time. It’s going to be one of the biggest tours of the summer, if not the biggest.” Dates and official announcement will come next week and Motley Crue is headed to Europe prior to the US tour this June. Vince is also doing a soft opening of his new strip club Girls, Girls, Girls with the grand opening a month later. Vince noted that this is the business he is most excited about saying: “I love the tequila business, I love the restaurants and the nightclub stuff, but I’ve always wanted to have a strip club. It’s … a dream come true. I’ve been going to strip clubs my whole life, so I might as well own one. It’s going to be a great summer, and now every time I get back home to Vegas between shows, I’ll have my own strip club to hang out in — it’s all perfect!” For more on Motley Crue, visit their website For more on KISS, visit their website Support: Have you seen these yet?
