Way back in the '80s, the band Night Ranger told a generation that “You Can Still Rock in America.” Now it’s a quarter-century later and…you still can! You can even rock in your very own living room with a trio of Night Ranger hits - that song plus “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me” and “You’re Gonna Hear From Me.” Add your own cheering crowds and you’ve got arena rock in all its glory.
Formed in San Francisco during the early ‘80s, Night Ranger logged many miles on the road with fellow arena monsters Journey, Styx, and REO Speedwagon, all of whom they’re still tight with today. After a handful of hit albums they split in 1989, with bassist Jack Blades forming Damn Yankees (with Ted Nugent and Styx guitarist Tommy Shaw). Night Ranger reunited fulltime in 1997 and has toured nearly every summer since. Guitarist Brad Gillis plays a red 1962 Stratocaster which he also used during an early-'80s stint in Ozzy Osbourne’s band.
According to Jack Blades, Night Ranger is still out there playing because “good music will always be good music, and people will always gravitate to that…and there is no doubt that you can still rock in America!” Sounds like a cue if we ever heard one!
