Bio:

Hagar Schon Aaronson Shrieve (also known as HSAS) was a rock supergroup band featuring lead vocalist Sammy Hagar, lead guitarist Neal Schon, bassist Kenny Aaronson and drummer Michael Shrieve. The group reportedly rehearsed for less than a month before playing in concert.They released a semi-live album, recorded during two live performances at The Warfield in San Francisco, entitled Through the Fire.The album includes a cover of Procol Harum's "A Whiter Shade of Pale".After the release of Journey's Frontiers in early 1983, guitarist Neal Schon decided to pursue another project with vocalist/guitarist Sammy Hagar. Hagar had released his Three Lock Box album in late 1982 and afterwards took a three-month safari vacation in Africa.Schon and Hagar then began looking for other musicians to complete the band. In an interview from mid-1983, Schon talked about the band's formation: "Sammy and I just get along so well. We're already working on an album together, and it's a killer! Right now we have Denny Carmassi, who used to work with Sammy on drums, and we're looking for a bassist. We worked a bit with Tom Petersson, but I guess he had other commitments."Schon went on the Frontiers tour with Journey from February to September 1983, and then reconvened with Hagar. By this time, Carmassi had left the band to join Heart, and the remaining two band members became Kenny Aaronson on bass and Michael Shrieve on drums. Shrieve and Schon had played together in Santana in the early 1970s.To record their album, the band played live dates from November 9, 1983 to November 21, 1983 at the Warfield Theatre. Two of the dates, November 14 and November 15 in San Francisco, California were recorded and broadcast by MTV. This footage was aired at least once but was never released on official videotapes or DVDs. The album Through the Fire was edited in-studio to reduce the crowd noise, but otherwise was left as recorded.A full concert of the band was also aired on the radio as a Westwood One broadcast. The original tracks that did not make the album include: "Movin' In for the Kill", "Tough Enough", "Through the Eyes of Love", "Hope and Fear", "What Will Never Be", and "Since You Came" (later revisited by Hagar as "The Love" on Red Voodoo (1999).The first single released was their cover version of "A Whiter Shade of Pale" in May 1984, which reached No. 94 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Another single released, "Top of the Rock" (as a promo only,) peaked at #15 on the "Billboard" Top Rock Tracks, and it became popular in various airplay regions of the United States. In addition, a third single from H.S.A.S., "Missing You" (also promo only,) peaked at #37 on the Top Rock Tracks.The band toured briefly in California in 1984, adding rhythm guitarist Nick Sciorsci for live performances.HSAS only produced one album before Schon returned to Journey, and Hagar recorded his VOA album and subsequently joined Van Halen.Hagar and Schon reunited almost 20 years later to form the short-lived Planet Us project, which would also feature past Van Halen and future Chickenfoot and Sammy Hagar and the Circle bassist Michael Anthony.

Album:

Through The Fire was the only effort from this short-lived group of superb players. Included here are Sammy Hagar (prior to joining Van Halen) and Neal Schon (during his short hiatus from Journey). Songs such as “Top Of The Rock”, “Hot And Dirty” and “My Home Town” really rock, and there is also an excellent cover of Procol Harum‘s “Whiter Shade Of Pale”.This album gave Schon a chance to flex his metallic muscle as Journey leaned towards soft rock. Surprisingly this album was recorded live during two dates in San Francisco, but the crowd noise was later removed from the recording to make it feel like a studio effort. The musicianship here is excellent and the songs are cool too, this album really impressed me. Hagar Schon Aaronson Shrieve receives two thumbs up for Through The Fire!Journey axeman Neal Schon satisfies his yearning for a four-piece Van Halen/Montrose environment through meat-and-potatoes metalhead Sammy Hagar on this heavily doctored live document, the creatively titled Through the Fire. Journeyman Aaronson, who looks cool and played bass on tour with Billy Idol, gives some new wave credence to this quartet, in image only. Like Schon, drummer Shrieve also boasts Santana roots. Most importantly, each member held the same management. Of course, Through the Fire is by-the-numbers, not in a league with Hagar's peak on the landmark Montrose, but as enjoyable as his solo '80s work. HSAS approaches each cut as an epic, and some fat could be cut from each, but Bay-Area brothers Hagar and Schon wisely use the opportunity to stretch their considerable AOR muscles. Hagar's always dubious lyrics try the patience at times: Who or what is "Giza"? Is "He Will Understand" feminist? But radio song "Missing You" captures sizzling prime Schon, and hot-clockin' dinosaur juggernaut "My Home Town" lumbers like an extinct GFR/BTO/FM staple.
