It's the Truth! After seeing them in that tiny Theater with maybe 400 other people, I could never take them seriously, as a lot of people found them amusing as well!! It was Hilarious. I think the vocalist at that time wanted to be Robin Zander, and the guitarist had all of Rick Nielsen's moves down pat, including playing triple guitars at once. They were playing Metal edged Power Pop at that time, and they had a lot of Props including a big Green plastic bag filled with Green Ballons which the vocalist pretended to have sex with until the bag burst open releasing the ballons into the crowd! Oh well, all in good fun I suppose! At least someone got off! I think he ripped off Jagger with that one. Without the gags and props at the Nugent/ Krokus gig, they pretty much fell flat.

I think they tried to loose that "Goofy" image later on with a more Metal persona, but It didn't seem to work did it? Maybe if they had stuck with the light hearted approach of the early 80's, they would have had more sucsess??
