Biography

Steel Dragon is the name of a fictitious heavy metal band featuring real musicians, created to appear in the Warner Bros. movie Rock Star (2001), inclusively being responsible for the movie’s original soundtrack. The members, especially the lead singers, had an over-the-top look and attitude similar to those seen in some famous hair bands of the 80s.

Guitar work for the band was done by Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne, Black Label Society), drums by Jason Bonham (Bonham, UFO, Foreigner, Led Zeppelin, Black Country Communion), and bass guitar by Jeff Pilson (Dokken, Dio, Foreigner). The lead singers were Jeff Scott Soto (voicing Bobby Beers) and high pitched Miljenko Matijevic from hair / metal band Steelheart (voicing protagonist Chris “Izzy” Cole).

The story behind the band in the movie was freely based on a curious incident that happened to Judas Priest; their original vocalist Rob Halford was replaced by a fan, Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens, who was previously the lead singer of a Judas Priest tribute band called British Steel, which may have influenced the name Steel Dragon.
