VAMP - The Rich Don't Rock [2CD remastered Deluxe Edition] (2013)
Country : Germany Genre : Melodic Hard Rock
Munich Melodic Hard Rockers VAMP were another sad example for the way the music industry works.
Signed by a Atlantic Records they released in 1989 the terrific "The Rich Don't Rock" album produced by Tony Platt (Foreigner) stuffed to the rafters with arena-ready choruses, hooky guitars and soaring ballsy vocals.
But Vamp were victims of their record label shortsightedness and their album went nowhere commercially.
Vamp started recording their only album in Holland but due executive differences several producers come and left until they finaly managed to get Tony Platt whom did a great job obtaining a brilliant and crisp sound.
Vamp toured Europe supporting White Lion, Bullet Boys, Bonfire and others but meanwhile the record company didn't promote "The Rich Don't Rock" in any way.
Disappointed with the scarce support, drummer Dickie left the band accepting the offer by no other than Bruce Dickinson to join him on his first solo world tour. After that tour he stayed in London and joined melodic rockers Skin. Soon the rest of Vamp disbanded.
A sorrowful story for such talented band. DISC 1
