Last day’s suggestion really came up with today’s suggestion. Remembering Mutt Lange as one would say but this is not the case. Not until a dispute over the worth of rock subgenres like AOR made me furious about the fact that, without a doubt, some bands started out quite differently but ended up being the absolute trendsetters (or one of the biggest trendsetters) of their time. Today’s band fit that description.
They are well known for the 80’s megahits, or their one – arm drummer, but few considered their not-so-humble part in the great NWOBHM. Many disputed over the frenzy of guitar solos among groups like Raven or Tresspass but few doubted the capabilities of the Deaf Leopards that stormed English pubs during the last days of the 70’s an the first glorious years of the 80’s (who can forget the deminishing of a great song from 78's Getcha Rocks Off, to 80's weak Rocks Off).
