Rock Rose were a US band that had
tremendous potential to go far.
Information about the band is
unfortunately almost non-existent,
but what we can tell you is that
they were formed in the late
seventies by bassist/vocalist
Frank Demme and guitarist Carl
Johnson, both of whom had been
with an early seventies US outfit
called Sweet Pain, drummer Jack
D'Amore and keyboard
player/vocalist Chris Barr. Their
excellent debut, released on CBS
Records, was a stunning mix of
catchy, melodic hard rock tracks
and well executed ballads. Why
this great band never made the big
time is one of rock music's many
seemingly unanswered mysteries.
It's not known if the album was
ever released on CD.
