Back in 1982, San Francisco quintet Night Ranger delivered a collection of melodic hard rock called ‘Dawn Patrol,’ a debut set that struck a perfect balance between established AOR giants that were then ruling radio the airwaves (like Journey and Foreigner) and a new breed of tougher rock bands that were gaining footholds on MTV.
Today, we're pleased to bring you the exclusive world premiere of a brand new and very unique live performance of Night Ranger’s classic anthem ‘(You Can Still) Rock In America.' It's taken from the band’s upcoming acoustic live CD and DVD, ‘24 Strings & A Drummer - Live & Acoustic,’ which will be released on Oct. 22.
Sometimes in the classic rock world, you don’t know whether you’re looking at truth or fiction. If you see Eddie Money working as a travel agent, well that's just a funny Geico commercial. But a bunch of reality show contestants taking their worst shot at singing Night Ranger’s ‘Sister Christian’ in front of the real Night Ranger on ‘The Bachelor Pad?’ Oh yeah, that really happened.
Following the success of last year's new album and tour from Night Ranger, bassist and vocalist Jack Blades is set to release a brand new solo record. 'Rock N Roll Ride,' set to be released March 27 on the Frontiers label, will be Blades' second ever solo release, following his 2004 self-titled disc.
Journey delivered a hit-filled, precisely performed concert that had 17,000 fans at Cleveland's Blossom Music Center on their feet and cheering for about eighty straight minutes last night (Aug. 2). The '80s legends headlined a bill that also featured sets from Foreigner and Night Ranger. (You can read about Foreigner's performance in our separate review posted right here.)
