The only thing I think I ever knew Shortino from 'till just now was his guest appearance on the Hear 'N' Aid "Stars" project. Always liked his voice from that but somehow never got round to checking out Rough Cutt. Might have been their image - while I always liked bands that took the time to put on a show and look like they hadn't just stepped onto stage from their day jobs at the docks, bands like Cinderella and RC were too much. Took my 25 years before I checked out the debut Cinderella album (saw it dirt cheap in a s/h store!) which, ironically, I really like now!

I suspect RC for me will fall into this category. I'm checking out stuff on YT right now and liking quite a lot of it! I like their version of the Janis song (I concede the video is just hysterical!), and Dreaming Again is really good too. They are all pretty good musicians.

RC vs. Warrant? I suspect they weren't as successful since they weren't as pretty. Frankly I never rated Warrant at all, I'm checking stuff now just to check and, no, they're still as naff and lightweight as I remember them.

Don't get me started on Trixter. Whoops I'm going o/t... and all MHO anyhow...
