BLACK ‘N BLUE – HOLD ON TO 18 – FROM THE VAULT

Originally formed in Portland, Oregon by childhood friends Jamie St. James and future KISS guitarist Tommy Thayer, Hold on to 18 received substantial airplay on the radio and on MTV and led Black ‘n Blue to release 3 additional albums, before their break-up in 1989. The albums, Nasty, Nasty and In Heat were produced by Gene Simmons. Black ‘n Blue reunited a few times and the band is still on the scene today. They released their 5th studio album, Hell Yeah in 2011 and have more plans for touring in the future. Support: Have you seen these yet?

It’s … a dream come true. I’ve been going to strip clubs my whole life, so I might as well own one.
