Yeah, you'd still take the raw demo-esque versions with Taylor any day of the week. Such a shame what happened to these guys. :(

Liilian Axe isn't the same without Ron. Period.

I've said it before and I'll say it again:  The first two albums, I'd put them up-against just about any others from the 1988 - 1989 time period.  So damn good, yet so underappreciated.  Had their first two been released in 1985 - 1987 they would have been HUGE.

I don’t know if I ever heard why Ron wasn’t in the band anymore. Did he leave or was he fired? Anyone know the story on that? 

I know he still played and had a couple projects after Lillian, so I don’t think it was him getting out of the business.

From what I recall, Ron didn't want to tour anymore.

I stand corrected:

"After much deliberation and many sleepless nights, I've decided to step down as the singer for LILLIAN AXE. I've really struggled with this for a long time and have come to the conclusion that this is just something I need to do for myself. Call it a musical mid-life crisis or whatever you might like, but there's something inside telling me that it's time to let the past rest and to venture into new, exciting and even unknown musical, professional and life experiences. During our time away from LILLIAN, not only did I find my way into other rewarding musical projects but I also stumbled into a new career that I have great passion for. Unfortunately, it does not allow me time to make the commitment required to record, release and support a new LILLIAN AXE record with the promotion, touring and sacrifice it takes to make a record successful, and this is the direction the band has chosen to go.

Here's a track never on any of their albums with Ron. Same time period.

    • Love it but me thinks Stan must of been listening to Def Lepp's Animal before writing as there is a BIG similarity even down to the Whao's... 
    • Yeah I dig that too. Very nice. Best thing I've heard from him in quite a while. 
    • Bon Jovi , everything released after 'These Days' and Def Leppard , everything released after 'Retro Active'....
    • First single from the new upcoming album. I dig it.    
    • I do enjoy that. So will this album actually ever be released, or is it just a song every month or so until we have 10 tracks? Feel like half a year ago this started being rolled out... 
    • Sad to hear. R.I.P and thanks for being a part of some magical tunes. 
    • I'd forgotten about these guys, but glad to see they're still at it. Cool song - something worth anticipating. 
    • Just listened to their new album. Very pleasantly surprised. This is good stuff. Arguably slightly samey but highly enjoyable.    Will have to dive into their back catalog.  Really like this track.     
    • This is the second single from the upcoming album "Dying Breed" due for release on Sept. 13th. Very good stuff from France.    
    • I'm not sure if this has been shared or not but Heavens Edge bassist George "G.G." Guidotti has passed away.  I was sad to hear this.  I love this band.  I actually stumbled across their release after it came out while I lived in Japan.  I didn't know who they were or heard anything from them.  I picked it up blindly and it blew me away.  I loved it so much I picked up the Rock Candy Records remaster of it and still play it often.  Below is post from the band on their webpage.  RIP GG and thanks for some great music.   August 20, 2019. It is with great sadness that we are announcing the passing of our brother George “G.G.” Guidotti who succumbed to lung cancer on Sunday, August 18th 2019. He was 57 years old. We met George in the summer of 1987 as we were putting the band together, and our lives would never be the same again. His impact was immediate. Once George joined the band, we knew the five of us would be set for life as brothers no matter what the rock and roll world had in store for us. George took the band’s stage show to the highest of highs. He never settled for anything less than the best for every one of us because he wanted our audiences to leave feeling their expectations were exceeded night after night. No one appreciated the audience more than George. For George, it wasn’t just enough to give it 110% on stage, he never let up off stage as well. If there were people laughing, or a good time was being had around the band, there was no question who was at the center of it all. George. Everywhere he went he was the catalyst for complete and total hilarious, rowdy insanity. But George was also thoughtful and compassionate. He would go to the ends of the earth for people in need. George was not perfect, as none of us are. But with George, he never hid his imperfections. He wore them on his sleeve out in the open for all to see. He was honest about the lifestyle he lived. When told he had lung cancer, he said to all of us, “What the hell did you expect?? I’ve been smoking since I was 10 years old!!” And then he laughed the way he always did. He didn’t want to go. But he knew his time on this earth was going to be cut short. For those who saw the second go ‘round with Heavens Edge, you saw a guy in George who defied aging. He was more energetic in his 50’s than most people are in their 20’s. His smile, ridiculous energy and pure love for being on stage reminded us that the band actually did “make it”. We made it because we found our brothers for life. We made it in the areas that count the most and we have George to thank for that. George “G.G.” Guidotti was a rock star. He didn’t make the money that some do. But he was a rock star just as much as any of them can be. We are going to miss him. Mark, Reggie, Steve and Dave
