Shameless are a hard rock glam band that was formed in the spring of 1989 by bassist Alexx “Skunk” Michael in Munich, Germany.Shameless are a hard rock and glam metal supergroup based in Munich, Germany. Although the band are based in Germany, they are notable for having numerous American rockers appearing on their albums.The original incarnation of Shameless was formed in April 1989 by bassist Alexx "Skunk" Michael. The band were relatively popular in their home town, selling out a 500 capacity club on their very first show. The vocalist left the band at the end of 1991 and they folded.Michael decided to reform Shameless in 1998 with his friend % guitarplayer BC. Alexx enlisted help from his friend, Eric Singer (drummer for KISS, Alice Cooper, Black Sabbath).Through Singer, the band hired an all-star lineup that included Bruce Kulick (KISS), Tracii Guns (L.A. Guns), Robert Sweet (Stryper), Steve “Sex” Summers (Pretty Boy Floyd), Stevie Rachelle (Tuff), Brian Tichy (Billy Idol, Whitesnake) and others to record their debut release, “Backstreet Anthems.”Produced by former Guns N’ Roses guitarist, Gilby Clarke, “Backstreet Anthems” was recorded at Studio City in Los Angeles, California. The release contained 10 tracks, including covers of “A Hard Dayz Night (The Beatles) and “Flaming Youth” (KISS).Following its release, Shameless continued to build a cult following in the hard rock underground. In January of 2000, Alexx & BC returned to Keri Kelli’s (Alice Cooper, Slash’s Snakepit) studio in Orange County, California to record their sophomore release, “Queen 4 A Day.”Keeping the successful formula of their debut release, Michael and BC once again recruited some famous guest performers including Jani Lane (Warrant), Keith Alan (Big Band Babies), Steve Riley (L.A. Guns), Bruce Kulick (KISS), Eric Singer (KISS, Alice Cooper), Stevie Rachelle (Tuff), Steve Summers (Pretty Boy Floyd) and others. Shameless recorded 13 tracks but only 12 of them were used for the album. The last track (a cover of the KISS classic “Tomorrow” was used for a KISS Tribute CD and not included on the final version of the album.“Queen 4 A Day” was released in the summer of 2000 via MTM Music in Europe. The band toured Germany and the Netherlands in support of “Queen 4 A Day” including several performances where the band was joined onstage by Bruce Kulick (KISS).The group’s third release, “Splashed” was released in the summer of 2002. This time the band made a conscious decision to focus on a cohesive line-up that included Alexx Michael (bass), BC (guitar), Stevie Rachelle & Steve Summers (vocals) , and Mike Fasano (drums).“Splashed” carried on the Shameless spirit of real rock and roll while having good time.The release contained 11 original tracks with a bonus DVD of material from their 2000 tour, including a promotional video for the lead single, “Don’t Hesitate.”Following the release of “Splashed,” the band set out on a sold out tour of England, Germany, Holland, Austria & Italy . The band recorded several shows during the United Kingdom leg of the tour, and subsequently put out their first live release, “Super Hardcore Show.”It would be three years before Shameless returned to record their next studio release in december of 2006, “Famous 4 Madness”. Bassist, Alexx Michael and guitarist, BC were once again joined by vocalists, Steve Summers & Stevie Rachelle. “Famous 4 Madness” saw the band returning to fine form and enlisting help from outside musicians including Phil Lewis (L.A. Guns), Jani Lane (Warrant), John Corabi (The Scream, Motley Crue), Keri Kelli (Alice Cooper), Kari Kane (Pretty Boy Floyd), Eric Singer (KISS, Alice Cooper).In support of “Famous 4 Madness,” the band embarked on an European tour that took the band to Spain, Switzerland, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom. Shameless continued to tour through 2009-2010 in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Belgium, France and Sweden.The band returned in December 2011, with a new studio release, “Dial S For Sex.” Featuring the two very successful songs, “Summertime Goodbye,” with vocalist Stevie Rachelle and guitarist Chris Holmes (W.A.S.P.) and a cover of the Katy Perry song“Hot N’ Cold” with Steve Summers on vocals.Shameless have recently completed recording their sixth studio release, “Beautiful Disaster.” The first single “Forever Ends Today” features Steve Summers (vocals), Tod T Burr(drums) along with BC & Michael Thomas(guitar) and Alexx Michael (bass). “Beautiful Disaster” contains 10 new original Shameless classics along with a cover of the T Rex / Marc Bolan classic “Life’s A Gas” featuring former The Runaways singer, Cherie Currie. This is the singer’s first appearance in the recording studio since 1998. Currie also lent her unique vocal talents on the Shameless original, “Dear Mum” that was written by Alexx Michael & Andy Brings. In addition, the band recorded the timeless Alice Cooper classic, “I’m Eighteen” with vocalist, Stevie Rachelle.Since their 1999 debut, Shameless have been establishing themselves as a band that doesn’t give a damn that the 80s are over – they continue to turn out good-natured, party rock and roll, regardless of shifting musical tends and styles.
Produced by Gilby Clarke (Guns N' Roses) and led by vocalists Steve "Sex" Summers, Stevie Rachelle (Tuff) there is little doubt why 'Queen 4 A Day' is songwriter and bassist Alexx Michael's most successful album to date. Guest musicians include Bruce Kulick (Kiss) and Kari Kane.Awesome music, loud guitars and great vocals. You will be listening non stop!!I never imagined to find an album like these in the year 2002, I started spinning the record and got hooked to it since the first listening, imagine this: Tuff vocalist/Pretty boy floyd vocalist, and a song provided by Gene Simmons, all songs are great in the vein of any 80's big hair band, good sound.This is pure and undiluted glam rock. The album is a huge step up from their debut album.Queen For A Day has everything a glamster could want for - much better production (from Keri Kelli and Gilby Clarke), better songs, better singing and bigger and better sleaze rock anthems.As for comparisons, you name it - Poison, Tuff, Motley Crue, Kiss, Bulletboys...they're all here.The vocals of Steve Summers are just great. There's an even balance of raspiness, power and melody.Most of the songs rock out, but there is the odd ballad places every 3 or 4 tracks to break the pace of the album up, which is an excellent move.Guest appearances on the album include Gilby Clarke, Tracii Guns, Brian Tichy, Steve Rilley, Jani Lane and Eric Singer.Add to that a bonus interactive area with behind the scene's video footage and a music video for the single Queen For A Day and you have the perfect glam rock CD package.BOTTOM LINE: A seriosuly good glam hard rock album for all fans of the genre. The guest list includes most glam acts on the planet anyway, so I can't imagine any sleaze rock fan being without this album. Even better than the great debut album. Please note, the essential rating on this album goes out to glam fans! Casual observers or fans of the more traditional straigh ahead rock release might not get this at all. Glam fans however will...big time!
