Line-up: DR Rydher (vocals), CJ Tyler (guitars), Johnny Heart (bass), Bobby Quik (drums).
Fletchanator's comment: This Syracuse, New York-based quartet came along just before the grunge apocalypse and put out a pretty rockin' little album (which is pretty tough to find on CD). The production (on indy label Ice Productions) is a little rough around the edges, but the musicianship is tight and frontman DR Rydher (who still sings 80s metal in Syracuse for covers band 3 Inch Fury) has the necessary swagger and vocal stylings. Sound-wise, they remind me of early Bon Jovi, perhaps with a hint of the poppiness of the hair-metal mainstays of the time (Firehouse, Trixter, Warrant etc). Backseat Romeo don't offer anything too flashy, but guitarist CJ Tyler throws in some George Lynch-esque shredding in a few places. Overall a fun album to rock along to.
