Bernie K. of Total Eclipse (hard rock band with AOR leanings) - he was also the singer for metal band Sound Barrier.

 

He was also on the Masi "Fire in the Rain" cd.

hey, just getting blacks to play an instrument anymores like trying to get the american record industry to sign a band that doesnt slap their hands against their chests and slobber when they talk! back in the 70's the brothas put out a decade of what I consider to be some of the greatest MUSIC!!! ever played, and that's the 70's Funk!! While never being a race of humans that believed in having anything easy, or handed to them, they took the next natural step in the evolutionary cycle, they decided to just play with record players, and rip off all their talented for-father musicians! but here are a few MUSICIANS!! I could think of.

There have been a lot of black rock bands, I think the whole hair metal part of the question kind of loads the question! theres Vernon Reid, and Cory Glover, the two frontman in Living Colour, Bad Brains, Fishbone, Black Sunday, nobody remembers the alternative\metal band Remy Zero?

Danko Jones, I believe he's canadian and he can put together an intense song! who can forget the black irishman? Mr. Lynott, rock and metal black guitarists, Rocky George(Suicidle Tendencies), Tony Macalpine, Tom Morrello's a milato, the punk band Death were all blacks! and probably the best black fronted group out of any and all of them was Orange 9mm! and as far as black hair metal\aor singers, theirs some, like what about Conny Lind? huh, and Axl Rose may as well be black! he acts just like one those colored folk!! as does Gene Simmons, so well take Morrello, and Skins, as well as Rocky George in exchange for those 2.

Conny Lind is black? Wow, there you go. You learn something new every day.

 

Actually, I could have sworn my testicles off that there was a photo of Peter Broman and Conny Lind on the 'Wonderland' inserts and they were both white chappies?

A BIG thumbs up for Doug Pinnick & King's X

 

and I could come up with:

 

The Hinder singer

The Sevendust singer

24-7 Spyz

Hinder are all white, unless I am missing something.

 

 

there was a british hinder around the mid 90's, an all black melodic rock quartet. They put out a couple of e.p's in the vein of journey, vocally very similar to say sam cooke / steve perry.... the singer is supposedly a well known vocal coach.

I ask BILL PETERS about this band a few years ago and he said it's commin' out on AUBURN.

I guess that's his own little CHINESE DEMOCRACY :lol:

 

LARRY MITCHELL

ERIC GALES BAND

Does anyone remember the rock/rap group HARD CORPS?

I forgot about Eric Gales Band and wow - Hard Corp !! from my ole stomping grounds, Nashville ! I didn't figure anyone would come up with them ! I am trying to remember what they were called after changing their name ...

 

Anyway, the Hinder thing - I would've sworn I saw a Hinder video a few years ago and they were a band of young white guys wuth a black singer with silver - dyed hair...and it was an AOR / lite metal sounding song, but I have been wrong before.

    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
    • On Instagram where Stevie Rachelle posted the link to the story it was crazy how many people don't know anything about the bands recent history or read the article. Several people moaning how they are replacing him too quick etc without realising he has been touring with the band since last year when he was covering for a recovering CJ and that Nate and CJ actually became really good friends. CJ would have wanted them to carry on and gave this guy his blessing, essentially.

    • Good news.  Nate seems like a great dude and from what I've seen, he does a nice job.  I think he's the right guy for that gig being he was filling in with CJ's blessing and he has the right tone in his voice to do the songs justice.  Granted, there's no replacing CJ's unique voice but good that they'll still be out there celebrating the music. One thing I wonder is if they'll maybe considering doing some new music with Nate?  I mean, he's a young guy and would probably love to record some new music with them.  Not sure how much demand there would be for it but I like to see them put out a new song at least and just see how it goes.  It would be nice to give Nate something of his own in the setlist too.  I'm not gonna hold my breath though lol.

    • FireHouse officially name Nate Peck as their new full-time frontman and lead vocalist Metal Sludge — News from the FireHouse camp as they announce their new lead vocalist. Fans of FireHouse and our readers here at Metal Sludge are all aware of the unfortunate news of CJ Snare‘s sad passing back in April and now the band have named his replacement. The band had been performing with fill-in vocalist Nate Peck since 2023 when Snare had to take a leave to deal with medical issues and surgery. Now the band are embracing the move forward and have officially named Nate Peck as their new frontman and vocalist. Read the band’s full statement below as was shared on their social media.     Nate Peck and FireHouse paying tribute to CJ Snare   **AMERICAN ROCK BAND FIREHOUSE ANNOUNCES NEW VOCALIST, NATE PECK** With the untimely passing of CJ Snare, American rock band, FireHouse, has officially announced their new lead vocalist, Nate Peck. Peck, 2023 American Idol golden ticket recipient, performed an outstanding audition for Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. Richie praised Nate’s performance saying, “That was brilliant…The best rock singer EVER that we’ve had. You’ve got it!” Katy Perry looked to the sky and said, “Actually, he’s SO good!” High praises from all 3 judges got him unanimous consent to move onto the next level of the competition. Peck ultimately decided to leave the show to pursue his career in music his own way: playing live music in Nashville’s booming rock scene and guest singing with national artists like Jack Russell’s Great White. Peck was first introduced to Bill Leverty by Jack Russell’s Great White guitarist, Robbie Lochner. Leverty explained, “When I first heard Nate’s vocal range, tone and control, I immediately knew that he’d be the perfect fit, filling in for CJ who was recovering from surgery. I advocated hard to get Nate out to play at New England Rockfest in October of 2023. He learned our songs very quickly and absolutely crushed it at the show. I then sent some video to CJ and he agreed saying, THAT’S the guy!” CJ and Nate immediately became very good friends. According to Peck, “CJ and I would talk regularly, a few times a week. He would give me vocal coaching, advice on touring and life in general. He was definitely a great mentor for me.” Peck has been singing with FireHouse since October of 2023, wowing audiences around the country. “I am honored to be working with these guys and singing these great songs.” FireHouse music will stand the test of time. Catch them on tour performing their hits “Love of a Lifetime”, “When I Look Into Your Eyes”, “Don’t Treat Me Bad”, “All She Wrote”, “Reach for the Sky”, “Shake and Tumble” and many more, bringing the fans the melodic hard rock they’ve loved for decades. https://metalsludge.tv/firehouse-officially-name-nate-peck-as-their-new-full-time-frontman-and-lead-vocalist/
