Damn Yankees

For a short time in the first ’90s, the supergroup Damn Yankees enjoyed a great deal of success around the arena rock and roll circuit. Made up of guitarist Ted Nugent, Styx’s Tommy Shaw, Evening Ranger’s Jack port Cutting blades, and drummer Michael Cartellone, Damn Yankees appeared during the last occasions of pop-metal’s heyday, and their music didn’t stray from that radio-friendly format in any way. The group’s self-titled debut record spawned several strikes in 1990, like the TOP power ballad “Great Enough” and the air hit “Arriving old.” Although they became a favorite concert pull (Nugent even produced headlines for his unchained behavior on-stage, including capturing arrows into an effigy of Saddam Hussein), the band’s follow-up work, Don’t Tread, didn’t fare almost aswell. The group disbanded immediately after, with Tommy Shaw and Jack port Blades carrying on to interact as Shaw Cutting blades.
