Michael Lee’s Notes From The Road: EIGHTIES ADVENTURES IN HOLLYWOOD!

For the Love of 80s…

The Lost Boys were born in La La Land, while I was working at E! Entertainment Television and soaking up the So Cal lifestyle.

It was there that I was exposed to incredible 80s cover bands all over the place. Every week I hit the clubs and saw the bands that were rockin’ The Strip and rollin’ out the 80s to the masses.

Metal Shop aka Metal Skool aka Steel Panther aka one totally badass band!

My all-time favorite cover band there was Metal Shop, originally called Danger Kitty.

The Lost Boys Remember Gordie Howe…

We were honored to perform for Gordie Howe when he visited Houston to have his Aeros hockey jersey retired in the rafters… We played plenty of 80s tunes for him to enjoy.

Mr. Hockey...may he Rest In Peace.

Thanks for the memories, Gordie.

LOST AT FIRST BITE

This time of year always takes me back to the 80s… Afterall, did any decade give us better horror? But of course…NOT! Think of it: the Big Eighties delivered a plethora of Big haunts like The Shining, Poltergeist, The Howling, and Ghost Story, to name a few. Scream screen icons like “Michael Myers” and “Norman Bates” continued their terrifying adventures during the decade…and then we met some iconic horror characters for the first time, like “Jason,” “Freddie,” and even Michael Jackson’s Thriller zombie.

But perhaps the greatest horror-comedy came in 1987… Long before ‘Twilight‘ started the teen vamp craze, “The Lost Boys” took a bite out of everyone with a film you could really sink your teeth into.
