    Not as good as the British (Welsh) band from the 1970's with the same name... check out Bells Of Berlin, Spacerships, Ballad of Crafty Jack etc, for real heavy rock 'n' roll! Accept no substitutes!!!! Rock on!

    Spanish Lone Star is one of the first and better spanish hard-rock bands! The guitar sounds quite distorted for that age trend.
