Hair Metal

White Lion

Wait, When The Children Cry, and a really solid cover of Golden Earring's Radar Love helped put White Lion on the hair metal map.

Vitto Bratta was a bad ass. White Lion had some crankin' tunes too.

White Lion gave us the double platinum album Pride, which included the hit song Wait. We were (and still are) big fans of Vito Bratta's guitar work all over White Lion's catalog.

We're also big fans of the tune, Little Fighter. Within it's tasty riffage and inspiring lyrics is a song about the Rainbow Warrior, a Greenpeace boat that was sank by French Intelligence while docked in New Zealand.
