30 YEARS AGO TODAY WINGER RELEASES THEIR 1ST ALBUM and a lot of successful musicians look back on their careers and talk about being at the right place at the right time. Whether it was The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, U2 or Nirvana, any massively successful band owes at least a portion of its success to good timing.

If you could create an equation that measured musical quality and timing, Winger might have the biggest disparity of any band in history.

Winger is one of the most ridiculed bands of all time. Yet anyone who actually dives into the band's catalog will find a group with all the technical ability and song craft of any great rock band.

Kip Winger says he understands how he and his band came to be the butt of so many jokes and of so much abuse over the years. "Strike one: Me and my band arrived a few years too late, as the 80's was almost over and Nirvana was about to change everything. Strike two: My biggest musical influences were classical masters and not rock bands. Strike three: I had a background in ballet and theatre and not the bar, alcohol and drug scene that other rock bands required to be popular".

30 years, back in the day when bands actually sing and play instruments. Plus the music sounded just as good live as they did recorded!

RIP singer Jill Janus, center, passed away Tuesday and was reported today. She was 43.

Founder of heavy metal band Huntress, she also co-founded with the great guitarist Nita Strauss, the all girl band The Starbreakers, that covered all the 80's metal hits.
