From Quiet Riot’s the fifth studio album “QR III” released in 1986 on Pasha/CBS. It is the last album to feature lead singer Kevin DuBrow until the 1993 album “Terrified”.
“The Wild and the Young” is the lead single of the album, a stadium hymn to the energy of youth. Its video (featuring game show host Wink Martindale in a cameo appearance) painted an Orwellian picture of the future, where totalitarian militarists fought to wipe out rock and roll — a reference to the Senate hearings concerning explicit language in heavy metal songs.
From the second album of Danish band Fate, released in 1986 by EMI on LP. A CD version was re-released by independent label MTM Classix in 2004.
Fate formed in 1984 featuring former Mercyful Fate guitarist Hank Shermann. They released four albums between 1984-1990 before disbanding in 1993. Reformed in 2004 and released two more albums: “V” (2006) and “Ghosts From The Past” (2011)
Official video from Bonfire’s debut album “Don’t Touch The Light” released in 1986 on RCA Records. Up to that point the German band was known under the moniker “Cacumen” and had a pair of albums under its belt. This is the start of a great career in the 1980s!
Kradle formed in 1982 and became known in ’83 after opening for Blue Oyster Cult at the Pacific Colesium in Vancouver. They played various sold out shows before finally getting offered a deal from Enigma Records. Due to bad managment advice, the band turned it down convinced a better offer would come along. Kradle disbanded after lead singer Tod Anthony Larkin was tragically drowned in a boating related accident in 1989.
In 2002, three of Kradle’s biggest die-hard fans (singer Jason Rodgers, guitarist Guy Mander and drummer Kevin Lovering) approached original bass player Steve Courchaine about wanting to re-form the band. Original guitarist and drummer Harry Degen and Claude Erfone had no interest without Larkin, but gave them their blessing. They played some gigs and recorded “Unleashed”, a 9 song CD consisting of 6 old songs and 3 new ones written with the new line up in 2003.
After watching Kradle perform live, the response they received convinced Degen and Erfone they wanted back in the band and Courchaine reluctantly had to cut Lovering and Mander loose.
The second single by Cinderella Recorded on the band’s first album, “Night Songs”, and was released in 1986. Nobody’s Fool charted at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100, and also charted at #25 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks in 1987. This was Cinderella’s second best-selling single, surpassed only by 1988’s “Don’t Know What You Got (Till It’s Gone)”.
The music video continues the storyline from where the “Shake Me” video leaves off, following the Cinderella-like girl as she accompanies the band to their rehearsal space, with the wicked sisters in pursuit. As the band performs the song, the girl runs home for the stroke of midnight when her rocker outfit changes back to a plain dress. She later meets the band again for an autograph, and the video ends as a glint of recognition passes across Tom Keifer’s face.
