Steelheart is a rock band based in Norwalk, Connecticut, formed in 1990.Steelheart started off as a rock band called Red Alert whose members included James Ward (bass), Chris Risola (guitars), Jack Wilkenson (drums) and after auditioning, Miljenko Matijevic on vocals. Frank DiCostanzo joined as a second guitarist and John Fowler replaced Jack Wilkenson on drums, after leaving the band Rage of Angels.Recording a four-track demo tape, Matijevic met artist manager Stan Poses. Poses was not interested but the next day, after hearing the demo tape, called confirming that "Red Alert" had just been given a contract with MCA records.Realizing that the Red Alert name was already taken, the band settled on Steelheart allegedly because of their attitude after trying to get a record deal for so long.Steelheart released their self-titled debut album in 1990. The second single "I'll Never Let You Go (Angel Eyes)" reached No. 14 on the Billboard charts, and was MTV's 2nd most requested video.The album reached No. 40 on the Billboard charts. "Everybody Loves Eileen" and its accompanying video were also successful.The song "Can't Stop Me Lovin' You" showcased Matijevic's vocal range, but this time, lead guitarist Risola's guitar skills were also noticed[original research?]. A video accompanied it. In the song "Love Ain't Easy", Matijevic hits his highest note of all three albums.Steelheart's second album, "Tangled In Reins", was released on July 10, 1992. Since the grunge invasion was taking force, the album only reached No. 144 on the Billboard charts. However the ballad "Mama Don't You Cry" charted No. 1 in many East Asian Countries,including Hong Kong, prompting their Asian tour in September, 1992. The MTV unplugged version in Hong Kong was a success, attracting an audience of over 10,000.After weeks of touring in Asia, Steelheart was later asked by the heavy metal band, Slaughter, to go on tour with them.Nearing the end of the tour, Slaughter asked Steelheart to perform one last show which would occur in Denver, Colorado. The show took place on Halloween night. While performing "Dancing in the Fire", a hit from the "Tangled in Reins" album, Matijevic decided to climb a lighting truss, which was improperly secured.Matijevic tried to dodge the rig, but without success. The 1000 pound truss hit Matijevic on the back of the head and he fell face first onto the stage, breaking his nose, cheekbone, and jaw, and twisting his spine. Matijevic managed to walk off the stage and he was immediately taken to a hospital.Four years later, Matijevic formed a new version of Steelheart with Kenny Kanowski (guitars), Vincent Mele (bass) and Alex Makarovich (drums) to record and release the album "Wait". The single "Wait" went No. 1 in some Asian countries, however that was the main area of the album's success[original research?], the grunge invasion causing the American European markets to be nearly closed to straight-ahead hard rock. Original member James Ward joined Steelheart on the tour supporting the album. Also on the "Wait" album, "We All Die Young", the first track, was in the motion picture, Rock Star, starring Mark Wahlberg. Matijevic stated that "Wait" was the choice of the title because it took a long time to gain freedom from the record company and his manager, who was taking more than what was his.
2006 double DVD set, digitally remastered, includes the Japan tour 1990 & bootleg concert 1991.Steelheart - 'Still Hard' (DVD) Released in 2007 through Steelheart Records .THE BAND: Miljenko Matijevic (a.k.a. Michael Matijevic) - vocals/guitar/piano Chris Risola - lead guiitar Frank Di Costanzo - rhythm guitar John Flower - drums James Ward - bass The first performance on disc one was filmed on Steelheart's Japanese tour in 1990 in support of the band's self-titled freshman release. The entire crowd knows what song the band is opening the show with just as soon as they hear the distinct familiar Miljenko vocal scream of ...Love...Ain t... Easy... . From this vocal line up throughout the rest of the concert, the five members of Steelheart give 2 hundred and ten percent! On the second song Like Never Before there are a few microphone screeches this is do to engineering error and not Miljenko vocals. The sound and picture quality are excellent even for something recorded seventeen years ago. If I am not mistaken, the live footage shot from three or four different camera angles, which, leads me to believe this section of the DVD was released on VHS probably in the early nineties. Miljenko vocal screams are dead on proving why he is the ultimate vocalist. Steelheart s set list included a song called Girl Gone Crazy which, is not on the American release of their self-titled debut. This song was either a b-side (which, in that time was very common) or, a track that is on the Japanese release. In between the sixth and seventh song of the band s set list there is a drum/guitar solo and though they were awesome, and yes,
