1983 – present (35 years)
Blue Tears is a hard rock band from Jackson, Tennessee that enjoyed some short-lived fame in the late-80s. However, the band was then basically ignored due to the wave of alternative/grunge music and the members got involved in other projects. However, the band resurfaced in 2006 with a new album.
Frontman Gregg Fulkerson formed Blue Tears in 1983 when he was just 17 years old, with some childhood friends. The band started playing covers and doing small gigs around their hometown, but quickly progressed to playing their original music with steady shows with audiences peaking at 1,000 people.
The band recorded several demo tapes in Fulkerson's bedroom, and a local radio station played them constantly. One of those tapes reached somehow a Los Angeles-based record company. They signed a recording contract with MCA Records soon after.
The debut album was released in June 1990 with tracks like "Innocent Kiss" receiving heavy promotion. However, after some time, the band was dismissed as just another glam metal act in that genres fading wave.
After that, due to some troubles with MCA, Blue Tears didn't manage to release a second record, and their members got involved in other projects. Most notably, Fulkerson and Spears worked with Stryper frontman in his first official solo album released in 1994.
By 2002, Fulkerson and Spears were again involved in another project called Attraction 65. At that time, there was already some sort of cult following of Blue Tears. Some unreleased songs recorded previous to their album were being heavily downloaded through the Internet. Fulkerson decided to release a compilation of unreleased songs titled Mad, Bad and Dangerous.
However, in 2006, Blue Tears (only with Fulkerson, from the original band) resurfaced releasing an album titled The Innocent Ones.
