Interestingly enough, I saw Firehouse back before they were Firehouse. Back then they were known as "White Heat". They played J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College's May Fest 1984. I was on the crew for that as I was in the student government. I wasn't quite into their music then I considered them a Van Halen rip-off, and I'm not a VH fan.. I did pick up their first two albums after the 'hometown boys' made it big--then they were claiming both Richmond VA and Charlotte NC as 'home'. I heard they got the name change because there were a couple of bands with the word white in their names and they didn't want to be mixed up with them, and Firehouse still implied heat of some sort. ;)

I think I might have some pictures somewhere of that gig...not sure though. I still have the t-shirt packed away somewhere.
