It’s sad that I know every single member in that Qzzy video above. Spent way to much time reading Circus and Hit Parader magazine in my youth.

I saw "Night Ranger" open for Journey maybe six or seven years ago. It was pretty bad. I mean, Journey was good but Night Ranger was bad. I think the only original member was the drummer. Is that this guy?

My oldest niece ended up getting on stage & singing with one of those hair metal bands. It was before a handful of people who wandered in after looking at the giant pumpkins at Topsfield fair. I think it was Night Ranger, might have been Survivor.

Image most of those bands ended up playing that circuit.

Can't go wrong w/ the "Sister Christian" from "Boogie Nights."

If it makes you feel better, my friend has probably banged every member in that video.
