Black N Blue
Black ‘n Blue is a glam metal band from Portland, Oregon that has been rockin’ since the early 80’s . The current members of Black ‘N Blue are singer Jaime St. James, guitarist Shawn Sonnenschein, guitarist Jeff Warner, bassist Patrick Young, and drummer Pete Holmes.
The band was formed in 1981 in Portland, Oregon and were originally known as Movie Star. In 1982 they uprooted to Los Angeles and in that same year they made their first recorded appearance on Metal Massacre, which was an independent compilation album that also introduced metal newcomers Metallica and Ratt.
In 1984, they released their self-titled debut album, Black ‘n Blue, on Geffen Records. This album hot the scene with a bang and included what is perhaps their best known hit to date, “Hold On to 18,”. This song was a staple of the metal MTV years.
After breaking up and reuniting several times over the years, Black ‘n Blue reunited again in 2011 and recorded the song Fools Bleed, which is included on the soundtrack to Gates, and is dedicated to the ROnnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Foundation.
