Biography

There are two bands known as Kingdom Come. For the first, see: Arthur Brown’s Kingdom Come (they were only called this in the U.S., and all of their album covers list the band as simply ‘Kingdom Come’). Melodic band Kingdom Come was formed in 1987 by Lenny Wolf in Hamburg, Germany, with a revolving cast of other band members leaving Wolf the focus. After the release of their first single, titled “Get It On”, many fans mistakenly regarded the band as a Led Zeppelin reunion, and Kingdom Come’s close resemblance to that sound, particularly with Wolf’s Robert Plant like vocals, has led to continuing controversy. Although the bands had a great deal in common, as shown by critics’ nickname ‘Kingdom Clone’, Wolf has pursued his own personal vision of mixing slick hooks with for decades.

The group’s first album, the self-titled ‘Kingdom Come’, became quite popular and is remarkable for its classic arena-ready hard rock sound, becoming a commercial success. The 1988 album had three Billboard top 40 singles: “Get It On”, “Living Out Of Touch”, and “What Love Can Be”. As stated before, supporters and detractors both felt strongly reminded of such bands as Led Zeppelin and Scorpions, the latter of which former Kingdom Come drummer James Kottak later joined.

The group came about after the breakup of Wolf’s moderately successful rock project known as Stone Fury. Wolf’s new record company, Polygram, allowed him incredible freedom to assemble Kingdom Come’s lineup and direct its sound, recruiting Pittsburgh-based lead guitarist Danny Stag, Louisvillians Rick Steier (guitar) and James Kottak (drums) and Northern Californian Johnny B.

    Они на Scorpions больше похожи, чем на Led Zeppelin (2).

    Awesome band. I disagree with calling them a Led Zeppelin clone. Those who think that should listen more of Kingdom Come. They've got their own style. Some early songs are similar to LZ's style (I'd say. that's how LZ might sound in the late 80's), but no more than that.
