BRITTON

Biography

Michael Britton seemingly first appeared in the late 70's with HEADWINDS, before joining DEALER (a group that served as an early career pit stop for one Tommy Lee, later of MÖTLEY CRÜE). After DEALER split, Britton played in ROMEO with ex-DOKKEN, DANTE FOX and GREAT WHITE drummer Gary Holland before the pair teamed up in BRITTON. The band's initial line up also included ex-HELLION guitarist Chet Thompson and former SURGICAL STEEL and STEELER bassist Greg Chaisson. The latter would depart for BADLANDS and was replaced by Skip Frank.

The group issued the debut album, 'Rock Hard', in 1988. It would be ten years before a second album would appear, after the 'Rock Hard' album was re-issued on CD in 1997. In the interim, guitarist / keyboardist Pat Schunk had recorded with POISON vocalist BRET MICHAELS then girlfriend SUZIE HATTEN.

GARY HOLLAND issued a 1999 solo album 'Loud As I Am' and also featured in the Blues Rock act BAD LUCK & TROUBLE for the 'Sidewinder' album. BRITTON made a return in 2001 touting the 'Alien Romper Room' album on Song Haus Music. Joining Britton for the recording sessions would be guitarist Allen Stewart and drummer Mark Gallegos.
