Check this out - had the 45th song ever played on MTV. MSB rocks baby!

Just kidding, and at the risk of getting my east side born and raised card revoked, I never got the whole MSB thing. Although, it did start me on my "Cleveland Inferiority Complex" at an early age. "Michael Stanley is great and gets no national media attention. It isn't fair" my friends would complain. Kinda like the Tribe 30 years later. I was much more a fan of Jonah Koslen after he left, at least back in my bar band daze.

Do not even tell me it was 'StagePass'.

Well, I can tell my a few of the remarks, there are some of you who do not care for Michael Stanley music, which is fine, to each their own. But, tell me, who do you think produces great music in the Cleveland area?

I don't mind some of the early stuff. 'Midwest Midnight', etc.

And to answer your question- no one. You'd have to go back to Eric Carmen/The Raspberries, Joe Walsh days to find anything that interests me.

Is the couple divorced yet? :lol: :lol:

Beautiful. A Stage Pass band blast. I had to throw in the MSB disc by the same name to just get the full effect. I can now bury it where I found it.

Wow, let's not take this personally. For a while his daughters were in the same school district where my mom taught, so word got around what a nice guy he was, great father, down to earth, the whole bit. Instant icon status on the east side. He's a big part of the Cleveland scene, and has done a lot of good for the community.

That being said, I just never cared for his music. At all.

From the mid 70's to the mid 80's, the Michael Stanley Band enjoyed a strong and fiercely loyal following, touring with some of the superstar bands of that period (including Bruce Springsteen, The Eagles, Foreigner and The Doobie Brothers); there were several Top 20 and Top 30 hits, among them "He Can't Love You" in 1980 and "My Town" in 1983, but it seemed the 'one great hit' never came -- the kind of chartbuster that saw acts like Bob Seger, Bryan Adams, John Cougar (now Mellencamp), make their names and hometowns, literally, household words .

In late 1982, MSB released what would be their final album for EMI: "You Can't Fight Fashion". The single, "My Town", had made it to 29 on Billboard Magazine's charts, sales were good, and the band was on tour, when EMI stunned the band by offering them an 'extension', rather than a contract renewal with a long-term financial commitment. When Michael confidently 'called their bluff', their label pulled the plug, halting promotion and tour backing immediately.


Good songwriter, good musician, not-so-good businessman.
