I admit, I am intrigued by these bands. It was a time in history that never should have happened. The music sucked, the dudes looked like ugly girls. Please post your top choices of hair metal bands (with incriminating pictures!)

I want to start with "Lixx Array". These guys never really made it, but there was a time when you could not swing a dead cat on a rope without hitting one of their "bassist wanted" flyers, which seemed to be posted everywhere.

I would LOVE to see what these guys look like now - unless, of course, they're dead or something!

It appears that a member of Frank Zappa's band in the 70's was also a fan of Angel (mainly guitarist Punky Meadows) and Frank wrote a song about it.

I used to know the original singer of this band, Janet Gardner. She worked at the old Guitar Center location on Main street in Santa Ana, ca around 1883 or so. Very cool lady, if you ask me!

Lucas - I seem to remember her as well...wow! this is a forgotten memory jog!

I used to attend Santa Ana City College back in '83 and I would always buy my new drum equipment at the Main Street Guitar Center (sticks, heads, cymbals etc). At that time there were always plenty of big-hair wanna-be's hanging out there. Can't remember the drum department manager's name now but I seem to remember he fit into that category too? I remember local bands like "Open Fire", "Trigger", "Taboo Zoo" and others whose names are lost in fog now. There was a transition musically...locally...post punk and I personally hated a lot of what was happening early-mid 80s. Drugs were a key aspect.

Side Note:
Do you remember Santa Ana's Eldorado Oldies record shop (I think on 3rd or 4th street just west of Main)?
The big-hair rockers would be there sometimes scouring the 45s for 70s glam stuff.
Me? I used to score tons of '60s garage 45s there before the 60s garage revival hit a few years later. The store was floor to ceiling 45s on shelves, all four walls full of obscure stuff. The original owner, before he died, used to hold invitation only nights where I bought original 45s - ten for five bucks and shit like that. God I miss that place!!

Those were interesting times! GC was filled with the new (at the time) Charvel-Jackson guitars, all with pointy headstocks! And not only were all the customers hair farmers, but the employees too!

If you want a flashback, go check out Sam Ash on beach blvd...there is a black haired dude with the farrah fawcett style that still works there, tight black jeans and all! I swear he was one of the original GC people back then!
