Chicago hair metal site (?)

About one year ago (might be even more) someone mentioned a great page where you could listen to a lot of old chicago (?) hair metal demos in a flashplayer (i remember Redd Barron). I can't find it anywhere now though.

 

Does anyone know which page I'm talking about and can provide the link once more?

The only site that rang a bell is this one. Not Chicago, but Detroit. Wonderful site though. :drink:

Thanx for the answers, but that's not the one I was looking for.

 

Motorcityrock is a sensational page. Wish there were one like that for every city!

 

The one I was looking for was nothing more but a flashplayer on a black background if I remember it correctly.

did you ever manage to pick up chicago metal compilations?

I think only volumes 5, 6 & 7 got a CD pressing.

All of the bands would have played the Thirsty Whale live venue at some stage.

I've been trying to put together a Tulsa one for ages. Most of the guys that were in those bands don't seem to want to talk about it any more. Kind of strange. Wish I would have known about the Chicago one. Would have loved to have heard those Disturbed guys when they were in Vandal.

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What? (Expanded) The Allman Betts Band - Down to the River Mike Oldfield - Five Miles Out (Remaster) Buckingham & McVie - S/T Michael Hutchence - S/T Roxy Music - Stranded (Remaster) Echo & the Bunnymen - Reverberation  Echo & the Bunnymen - Evergreen (Expanded)
    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
