Nobody quite knew what to think of these longhaired, tattooed bikers singing such soulful, yet ballsy, rock music when they arrived on the scene in Los Angeles in 1987. They stood out amongst the "Hair Bands" that populated the music scene at the time....a distinction the band wore as a badge of honor.Much hype surrounded the band as they were managed by music legend Jimmy Iovine, guided by legendary A&R man John Kalodner and produced by Bob Rock. It seemed like a formula for success, yet the band met an unfortunate set of circumstances that left many scratching their heads shortly after the release of their self titled debut album. Many were to speculate why the band never acheived the level of success that their legendary team of backers took as inevitable. Many were to speculate that it was due to the dichotomy between the band's gruff appearance and their sound. The truth was that the band fell prey to an unfortunate set of circumstances that occured in the limited window that bands get to produce sales in, or get exiled in the music business. Three weeks into the bands initial release, Geffen Records was sold, their label Manager left the company, accountants took over, and their records where lost in transit to their new distributors. As sales dropped off due to the lack of product availability, the accountants shut the project down. And so, another band dies....there's always more where they came from in the rough and tumble world that is the music business.Little Caesar, featuring Ron Young (vocals), Jimmy Hayne aka. Apache (guitar), Loren Molinare (guitar), Fidel Paniagua (bass) and Tom Morris (drums), first appeared on Metal Blade’s “Street Survivors” compilation. The band then released a four song EP titled “Name Your Poison” (produced by Joe Hardy of ZZ Top fame), which subsequently led to a deal with Geffen Records. Little Caesar’s eponymous 1990 Geffen debut was produced by the infamous Bob Rock (producer of Metallica’s self titled 1991 multi-platinum release, Motley Crue’s “Dr. Feelgood”, and The Cult’s “Sonic Temple” among others). The album was a no-nonsense collection of hard rock in the vein of ’70s giants like Bad Company and Humble Pie, and was also brimming with classic R&B influences, garnering widespread acceptance and positive reviews from the rock media. It also featured two Motown covers, including a ballsy rendition of the classic Aretha Franklin track, “Chain of Fools,” which hit the Billboard Top 100 chart and received strong airplay nationwide on both rock radio and MTV. The group toured extensively opening for such legendary acts as Jane’s Addiction, KISS, Social Distortion, Iggy Pop, Billy Idol, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. They also headlined their own club tours, and appeared on TV’s popular “Arsenio Hall Show”, “The Rick Dee’s Show”, and MTV’s “Sex in the 90’s”. Vocalist Ron Young was also featured in the movie “Terminator 2” as a tough talking biker that gets into a fight with the film’s star, Arnold Schwarzenegger. 1992 would bring the second full-length album, “Influence”, which would have Earl Slick (of John Lennon, David Bowie, and Ian Hunter fame) replacing Apache on guitar. The “Influence” album was produced by the well respected Howard Benson (who has recently produced releases for platinum artists like Daughtry, Papa Roach, and P.O.D. among others). The band completed its first tour of Europe after the release of the album and drew rave reviews and sold out crowds across multiple countries including a sold out headlining performance at the famous Marquee club in London.As the band slowly recovered from the shock and lessons learned in the nasty world of the music business, they always remained close, as they are a family way before they are a band. They started to do local shows and remember why they loved music and each other. Since the reformation, the band has played high profile shows at venues as House of Blues, California Speedway for NASCAR, and the Rock The Bayou Festival in Houston TX.In 2010, Little Caesar moved forward with a vengeance on a worldwide level with new release titled "Redemption" as well as touring in the US, Europe and the UK. They also introduced new guitar player Joey Brasler (Etta James, Bob Welch, Cherie Currie) as a welcomed addition to their musical line up.In 2012, Little Caesar now releases their latest effort entitled "American Dream". Produced by Bruce Witkin, it's a powerful, no nonsense, guitar driven group of songs, that takes the band to that same warm R&B driven Rock and Roll Universe they call home. They embark on a tour of Spain, Germany, Switzerland and Belgium mid June and will be performing at the Hard Rock Hell festival in Wales in Dec 2012.
American melodic hard rockers LITTLE CAESAR have signed a global deal with Golden Robot Records for the release of their new album, "Eight", on March 16."Eight" is the band's first studio album in six years, and lead single 'Time Enough For That' is a reflective, semi power ballad that is a total lighters (or phones) in the air midtempo melodic rock smash with that late '80s feel intact, as the entire record.Little Caesar were a band largely apart from the Hollywood scene of the day musically, though they did have approximate peers in bands like Junkyard, Rock City Angels and Salty Dog, though in truth none of those bands had the smooth rumble or sheer class of Little Caesar in full flight.For me, Little Caesar are one of those bands that can do little wrong. They fall into this ultra rare and very special place, they deliver soulful straight ahead hard driving melodic rock and roll and they sound like they are having a blast doing it.So just like cracking open that ice cold bottle of Coca-Cola, I know exactly what to expect from a new Little Caesar record and my tastebuds are anxious for a taste.The 1-2-3 punch of '21 Again', 'Mama Tried' and my personal favorite 'Vegas' make a great triple-track start.On an album that throws a few gentle but effective curve balls ‘Mama Tried’ picks up the pace and introduces a hint of Country to a down home tale of woe, it's simple, direct and irresistible.‘Vegas’ takes us back to a more familiar neighborhood, sets up a righteous Little Caesar groove, with great guitars and trademark harmonies, it has all that you want from the band with the swagger of their debut and the confidence of age, it’s all wrapped up in a great tale of the City of Sin.'Crushed Velvet’ that follows is a little more introspective and its dark groove give room for lead vocals to, oppositely, shine.‘Good Times’ then offers up a dirtier riff and it’s that patina that always been a big part of the charm of Little Caesar. To provide variation, 'Straight Shooter'” is as close you will get to anything modern sounding, a balls-out rocker with a punchy riff.The slow and smokey ballad ‘Time Enough for That’ does what Little Caesar always did best of all – gently unfolding a sweet soulful song with a gentle melody, dripping in emotion that fits beautifully in the lineage of tracks classic like ‘From the Start’ or ‘I Wish It Would Rain’.I purposely skipped track 6, 'Time Enough For That' which I just learned is the first single from the record. An absolutely gorgeous mid-tempo rocker that lyrically kills it. Encouraging us to hold on to the good things in our lives and live more in the moment. Ron Young is far and away one of the most soulful rock vocalists alive.For those that are looking for stripped down melodic rock, honest, with no fluff, no gimmicks, and no excuses, Little Caesar's "Little Caesar" is for you.It's all blood and wood, no electronics here, no bombast, but wrapped by a very well polished melodious production.
