i read somewhere that that they have many unreleased songs laying around, hopefully they will be released someday!

Hot Boy was basically a one man studio project with a bunch of well known musos filling in & that main person is well known in real estate circles in Portland Oregon.

 

I wonder if there any footage of Hot Boy live around the local scene, I wouldn't be surprised to know none exist because the band never played live.

I'm not surprised they didn't tour. Can you imagine going home & telling your missus that you're going out to see a band called HOT BOY play?

Well on the forum selection page, I saw this and it made me laugh:

We had a semi-lengthy discussion on the subject several years ago on the album page. I even spoke to the drummer, and we were going to meet and discuss the entire project at length, but it just didn't happen.

 

I still live near Poretland (have most of my life) and purchased the CD new back in about 1991 from a little place called Locals Only (all Portland area musicians). Anyway, back in the late 90's I traded a few used copies I found around town to PJ (remember him) and he sold them for a rather large bounty. After that I continued to look and was able to locate two more used copies. I sold one to a guy from Japan for $399.00, and another (lesser quality copy) to someone else in Japan for like $250.00. Neither lasted on ebay more than about one hour.

 

Those of you who haven't been around these parts forever, or ebay since its inception might think I'm bullshitting, but I'm not, not one bit. There were times back in about 1997 or 1998 rare 80's rock and metal CD's were selling for $500.00 to $1,000.00 and up ON A DAILY BASIS on ebay (PJ made a KILLING back then). CD's like Stryper TO HELL WITH THE DEVIL (Japan), Chastain RULER OF THE WASTELAND (Japan) Apocrypha FORGOTTEN SCROLL (Japan) and many many, MANY more were setting records each and every day.

 

Anyway, from what I gather Scream (vocals) was the only "real" member of HOT BOY, and the other guys were local hired musicians. If you check out the video for YOUNG, WILD AND FREE on ebay, notice the lead singer is NOT the same guy as the one on the CD cover. But that's another story :)

 

I actually have at least 5 or 6 sealed copies of BARELY LEGAL on cassette tape. You think the CD is rare, has anyone else ever seen a copy of the cassette? Not that rare necessarily means valuable... ahh, you know what I mean.

Actually, that is me on the CD and in the video. The drummer is the same too.

Cheers!

I think Karpet was the "hot boy" that Geoff was "in".

    • I think I posted these guys before. It's not ground breaking, but they have an album out and it's pretty cool. Some really cool musical passages on it.   Sever     -    This Should Have Been a Better Place 1    .    '91 2    .    Red Room 3    .    Animal 4    .    Cold World 5    .    Empty Promises (feat. Christoph Wieczorek of Annisokay) 6    .    Closer 7    .    The Disease 8    .    My Dream, My Agony 9    .    Noise in the Trees 10    .    Do You Remember Me?
    • These guys are one of those mystery bands to me. I think they're fine, just can't figure out why people fall over themselves for them as I think they're average to below average in the overall scheme of things. BUT, that is why I am a strong advocate for to eaching their owning. I'm glad people dig, I just don't really understand why. Anyway, new album is basically what these guys do. Solid, eclectic and half decent... but not great. I did think 'Beat of Your Heart' was a nice ballad. Drum sound interesting too. Took me genuinely 6-7 songs to figure out what I thought of it - if I liked it or not. I think I settled on the fact it's cool. I think. Anyway, I assume fans will adore this for whatever reasons they loved the other ones. Me, I think it's adequate, again. 
    • I'm not in the camp enough to say this is utter shit because honestly, it's not. It is capable melodic hard rock and if I put myself in the honest box, if nothing else was considered and this came along in a year like 1996 or something, it'd be a well appreciated album. BUT, all things considered, I agree that it's a pass. It's all capable, but it's very bland and it's just impossible to listen to this project without wondering why it's still called Sunstorm without JLT. It doesn't make sense.  Anyway, I thought 'Hold The Night' was a passable keeper but the rest is predictable, uninspired and bored. 
    • lol, I wonder who he thinks that is going to appeal to? 
    • I'd be amazed if there's any Tesla fans anywhere that don't like 'Bust a nut.' Is this really considered one of their weaker albums? 
    • Ok. I can understand your thinking regarding one`s favorite bands. In my case it was  Bon Jovi. First album I ever bought was Slippery, liked NEw Jersey even better. Saw them live few times, but after 1995 only some good songs on each album but still bought albums,  since Richie left I cant stand their latest albums or even live. So from that scenario I see that I am not just following my favorite bands regardles what they put out.     But in Tesla case I do stlll enjoy their releases, even those post 2010. A admit that Shock had some filler but also some of their best songs post 2000 like The Mission.   I do miss the heavier  element that Tommy brought. songs like  Dont de-rock me, Action talks.
    • Blondie on the right of the second shot is PERFECTION!
