Bio:

Damn Yankees were an American rock super group formed in 1989 consisting of Tommy Shaw of Styx, Jack Blades of Night Ranger, Ted Nugent of The Amboy Dukes and a successful solo career, and Michael Cartellone (then an unknown drummer who would later join Lynyrd Skynyrd).They are remembered for the songs "High Enough" and "Where You Goin' Now", both Top 40 hits in the early 1990s. Produced by rock producer Ron Nevison, the new band's self-titled debut album went double-platinum in 1990. Jack Blades's leading single "Coming of Age" hit No. 60 on the U.S. Hot 100, and No. 1 on the AOR charts, while Tommy Shaw's "Come Again" received extensive AOR airplay.1990's rock ballad "High Enough" rose to No. 3 on U.S. Hot 100, and No. 2 on AOR charts. Despite Ted Nugent's career being built on his hard-rock "Motor City Madman" image, the more pop-rock sound of "High Enough" was his first mainstream top ten single. The band's songs appeared on several Hollywood film soundtracks, such as Gremlins 2: The New Batch, Nothing But Trouble and The Taking of Beverly Hills.After the release of their debut, the Damn Yankees went on an 18-month world tour with the likes of a revamped Bad Company, Poison and Jackyl. Their U.S. tour coincided with the Persian Gulf War, in which the band unfurled American flags and made patriotic statements.In 1992, Damn Yankees went gold with their follow-up album Don’t Tread. The title song, sung by Blades, enjoyed extensive coverage at the Barcelona Olympic Games. Ted Nugent also appeared on Rock the Vote, voicing support for the GOP against Bill Clinton. Although the second release was not as successful as the first album, it contained a few hits, such as "Mister Please," "Where You Goin' Now," and "The Silence Is Broken," a power ballad featured in the 1993 Jean-Claude Van Damme film Nowhere to Run.In 1994, Ted Nugent revived his solo career, leaving Tommy Shaw & Jack Blades to record their own album as the duo Shaw Blades. Released in 1995, Hallucination received very little support from its label as a personnel change brought industry executives more sympathetic to alternative and grunge bands.Ultimately, the Shaw Blades album came out to some critical praise, but it vanished without major single support or a national tour (which had been cancelled by Warner Bros.). "I’ll Always Be With You" did garner some AOR airplay, and the title track was heard in the hit movie Tommy Boy, but after a brief West Coast tour, both Shaw and Blades went back to their respective original bands, Styx & Night Ranger.In 2007, Shaw Blades released their new album Influence, which consisted solely of cover songs that influenced them, mostly from the 1960s and 1970s. The pair also recorded a cover of the classic Christmas song "The Twelve Days of Christmas" on the "A Classic Rock Christmas" album by various Classic Rock artists in 2002. Both members still principally record and perform with their respective original bands.During a hiatus in both Night Ranger and Styx, Shaw and Blades met with Ted Nugent to record a new Damn Yankees album in 1999. However, the album, provisionally titled Bravo, failed to please either the band members or the prospective record labels. Some of this unused material may have surfaced on various group and solo albums of the band members.While on the VH1 Classic show Power Ballads of 88, Jack Blades commented about recent rumors regarding Damn Yankees. Jack said he, Ted, and Tommy had been talking and hanging out. Jack then said there would be new music and a tour from Damn Yankees in the future.In 2004 at Alice Cooper's Christmas Pudding, an annual charity concert to benefit Alice Cooper's Solid Rock Foundation and Teen Center in Phoenix, AZ, Damn Yankees reunited on stage. The band played "Don't Tread", "High Enough" and "Coming of Age".On January 15, 2010 at the NAMM Show in Anaheim, California, the original members of Damn Yankees made a surprise appearance at the Taylor Guitars exhibit. Jack Blades, Tommy Shaw, Ted Nugent, and Michael Cartellone performed an acoustic set on the Taylor Stage including hits such as "Coming of Age", "High Enough", and the Ted Nugent anthem "Cat Scratch Fever".In 2011, Nugent joined Jack Blades' band Night Ranger to record an extended version of "Coming of Age" as a B-side for their album "Somewhere in California." In place of his original solo, Nugent plays a version of the guitar solo from "Stranglehold."In May 2017, Cartellone joined Night Ranger at the Wildflower Festival in Richardson, Texas for a performance of "Coming of Age."As far as a potential Damn Yankees reunion goes, Cartellone told Cleveland NBC affiliate WKYC that he and other members of the band have continued to meet and write over the years. While a new album has yet to materialize, he says that does not mean the Damn Yankees are finished. They never purposefully disbanded and are keeping a reunion an open door to this day.

Album:

Yes, it’s one of our favorite Melodic Hard Rock album ever. And we are presenting it in exclusive at 0dayrox the fresh Rock Candy Remastered & Reloaded version of DAMN YANKEES second and final album “Don’t Tread“, including 2 bonus tracks.Yes, we love Damn Yankees self-titled debut album, but on “Don’t Tread” the supergroup comprising guitar hero Ted Nugent, former Styx vocalist / guitarist Tommy Shaw, Night Ranger bassist Jack Blades and drummer Michael Cartellone, perfected their songwriting and melodic delivery making this record a true gem for the genre.Whilst supergroups were all the rage in the 70s and 80s, few of them actually delivered meaningful results. In the case of ’90s super-band Damn Yankees this was not the case, as the combined explosive talents of guitar hero Ted Nugent, former Styx vocalist and guitarist Tommy Shaw, Night Ranger bassist Jack Blades and drummer Michael Cartellone not only made an enticing proposition on paper but also actually delivered a hugely convincing musical statement.Their self-titled debut album was a massive commercial and creative success, achieving double platinum status in North America alone, elevating the band to a level that few would have confidently expected.”Don’t Tread”, the band’s second and final album was issued in October 1992 to huge anticipation. Sadly, however, grunge was the next cash business for the music industry, and while the album sold well, Damn Yankees band members decided to separate next year.However, the songs on the album were even better than the debut, elaborated melodic hard rock songs wrapped by top musicianship and a glossy production courtesy of master Ron Nevison (Heart, Led Zeppelin, UFO), and mixed superbly by Chris Lord-Alge.For me, songs like ‘Where You Goin’ Now’, ‘Someone to Believe’, and ‘Silence Is Broken’ are near perfect US AOR, while title track ‘Don’t Tread on Me’ (very Night Ranger-ish), ‘Fifteen Minutes of Fame’, or ”Firefly’ are great melodic hard rockers displaying grit, determination and a desire to impress.We put ”Don’t Tread” in the same league of Harline’s ‘Double Eclipse’ – same polished sound, melodic approach and production values. It’s that kind of huge sounding rock albums with a commercial focus yet meaty, well crafted material.
