Best Group/Musician to Come outta NEOhio?

Unread postby SteelersStillSuck » Wed Dec 12, 2007 12:15 pm

So Many to choose from

Chrissie Hynde
Devo
Bone Thugz and Harmony
Trent Reznor
Michael Stanley..and so on and so on, Quite a diverse group. So who in your opinion is the best to have grown up around here or got there big break here?

IMO, The Best to person to come outta here is Joe Walsh. Dude was successful with three groups! When he joined the Eagles he made the m pretty awesome and added a much cooler sound to them.

Don't forget about Dean Martin from Steubenville.

My vote goes to Joe Walsh.

The Raspberries had some good stuff too. Eric Carmen solo makes me want to slit my own throat, but the Raspberries were ok.

Crazy Joe is certainly the most high profile, and arguably the best rocker, to come out of NE Ohio. He certainly gave the bland cocaine cowboys in the Eagles and swift kick in the arse.

One the punk side, I'd be remiss not to mention Pere Ubu or The Dead Boys.

Sominex and Sonic Reducer? What a combo.

There was also a pretty substantial metal movement up there back in early 80s. Shok Paris was on Headbangers Ball and Breaker had an album out too.

edit: I thought Maynard James Keenan of Tool was from Ravenna?
I know Joe Walsh was mentioned but not the James Gang. Nine Inch Nails too.

Dean Martin has to be the most famous or most successful, even if not the favorite over Eric Carmen.

I stand corrected.

I agree though that we are still forgetting someone.

MSB had their moments. Funny thing was MSB's two biggest hits were with Kevin Raleigh singing. LOL.

Unless you count the "My Town" and "My Team" song that we heard 200,000,000,000,000,000,000 times a year in NE Ohio.

Chrissie Hynde was the original "bad girl", blazing a trail for Benatar, Joan Jett, Blondie, etc. Just out of longevity and what she did to the scene, she at least gets honorable mention.

Devo, for as wierd as they were, you could NOT listen to a Devo album and stay in a bad mood.

Joe Walsh is from Kansas. The James Gang was a Cleveland band he joined. Rob Halford is from England.

Did you know a popular glam band has ties to Akron? When I was getting married, I saw a poster in the tux shop in Wadsworth with what looked like a bunch of women. The owner said that was a band he was managing, and they were about to go big. We laughed. Six months later Poison was in the charts and the tux shop was long gone!!! Mitch was done dry cleaning tuxes...

Anyway I gotta go with Chrissie. "The pride of Firestone High." and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer. And no I never figured out the lyrics in "I'm Special"...

That's it.

I knew there was somebody more recent and somewhat popular we missed.

Good correction on The James Gang.

I know Joe Walsh wasn't "born" here..but I consider him a clevelander as he went to Kent State, and even sang the national anthem for us in the '95 world series.

I saw that Shok Paris bands video on youtube, rather intresting as to how influenced they were by Maiden and Priest and then you see Shots of Cleveland, Looks like a cross between a Michael Stanley video and an Iron Maiden one.

I'll add another one Jani Lane of Warrant..(Sweet Cherry Pie!) is from Suffield in portage county.

Actually the Mothersbaugh brothers and Cassale from Devo are still making a good living doing theme music. The theme of the cartoon "Rugrats" comes to mind. They have along list of themes they've done.

Michael Stanley is DJ and still gets a band together now and then and rocks out. At one concert a guy yelled up "Why are you still playing?" and he yelled back "Why are you still paying to hear me?"

Joe Walsh is still doing alright with himself.

We wish we could sell 1/10 the records the worst of them did. And they're still earning a good living.

There was a guy out of Youngstown who had a band called the Glass Harp. Phil Keaggy. Keaggy eventually left the Glass Harp and over time was one of the early originators, in the growing Contemporary Christian Music scene. Glass Harp has reunited a few times back in Y-Town, but Keaggy is a pretty well known musician in industry circles.

I've heard that Glass Harp was as big or bigger than James Gang in terms of the local scene, but the James Gang ended up achieving more nation-wise fame. Though to be fair Keaggy kind of stopped playing with them fairly early on after his conversion. One urban legend was that Jimi Hendrix was asked by Dick Cavett or Johnny Carson "what's it feel like to be the greatest guitar player in the world and Jimi said "I don't know you'll have to ask Phil Keaggy". Of course nobody can find any proof of this.

According to Wikipedia Glass Harp Bassist Daniel Pecchio, was a founding member of Michael Stanley Band.
