St.Paradise - Live it up, from
their sole self-titled debut
album, released in 1979.
St.Paradise was another US melodic
hard rock band with tremendous
potential. Unfortunately fairly
short-lived, they were formed by
ex-Ted Nugent band members, Derek
St.Holmes on guitars and vocals,
and bassist/vocalist Rob Grange.
Drumming duties were competently
handled by Denny Carmassi,
ex-Montrose. The band showed much
promise and were signed to Warner
Brothers Records, for whom they
recorded our featured album.
Following a European tour
supporting Van Halen, which failed
to win them new fans, the band
split, with Carmassi going on to
join Gamma and St.Holmes joining
Aerosmith's Brad Whitford for a
once off album before rejoining
Nugent in1 982.
Reviews of the bands albums will

this band or something to add,
