1. Salty Dog was a sleaze metal band that infused a Led Zeppelin style vocal delivery to their bluesy brand of rock'n'roll. Their one and only album was filled with guilty pleasures that should have made them stars, but sadly didn't.

Formed in Los Angeles by Jimmi Bleacher (vocals), Scott Lane (guitar), Michael Hannon (bass) and Khurt Maier (drums). Lane left the band in 1987 and was replaced by Pete Reveen. They recorded their only album in Europe, but would never get the chance to tour there. The band toured relentlessly, and videos for "Come Along" and "Lonesome Fool" got limited airplay, but album sales remained sluggish. In 1991 the band sacked Bleacher and promised a return, but it never happened.

Hannon went on to join rockers Bogus Toms and Dangerous Toys, but would eventually form a band similar in style to Salty Dog called American Dog. Maier resurfaced in Mudpie while Reveen is in a group called Tweed.

2. A new lineup for the Classic Rock band now takes over with some new Dogs, Roger Pavlica "The Dean Of Rock & Roll" on Guitars -vocals, Mike Holmes on Bass-Vocals and Dirk Gabrielson on Drums. The new lineup brings world class talent into the mix with very diverse styles of music from jazz to funk to hard rock.
