Biography

Although they were often considered Mötley Crüe/Poison disciples, Los Angeles '80s glam rockers Jetboy contained a former member of the group that may have been responsible for the whole musical movement in the first place -- former Hanoi Rocks bassist Sam Yaffa. Joining Yaffa were Mickey Finn (vocals), Fernie Rod (guitar), Billy Rowe (guitar), and Ron Tostenson (drums), and while they never hit the big time like the aforementioned pretty boy outfits, the quintet enjoyed exposure on MTV's Headbanger's Ball program, resulting in some regional success. Their first two albums, 1988's Feel the Shake and 1990's Damned Nation (both on MCA), were issued during glam's peak, but with the emergence of the Seattle movement, Jetboy and their ilk took a backseat to such back-to-basics rockers as Nirvana, Soundgarden, and Pearl Jam. During the late '90s, several collections of rarities and highlights were released, including Day in the Unglamorous Life, Make Some More Noise, and Lost & Found. For lovers of '80s glam/pop-metal, Jetboy may be one of the genre's best-kept secrets. ~ Greg Prato
