Steelheart are grossly underrated. Lead singer Miljenko Matijevic effectively is Steelheart. Still, a band is not made by singer alone, so Milli added Chris Risola, Bill Lonero, Rev Jones and Mike Humbert to the band.
Steelheart are huge with the Rocklahoma crowd. The band has played at both festivals. This past summer, fans actually booed when Steelheart were forced off the stage. That's right! Steelheart ran out of time and the Rocklahoma promoters wanted to keep the show on the road so they forced the band off - and the crowd got a little unruly. Fans were chanting "One more song!" for quite some time...but no luck.
The new Steelheart album Good 2B Alive has been in the works for what seems like forever. Friday night (November 7), you'll be able to hear the entire album at www.g2ba.net. You have to log on at midnight (eastern) to listen - and yes, it's free. Good 2B Alive is available for sale on November 11, 2008.
If you've been to Steelheart's Myspace recently, you've probably heard the new single "LOL." I'm sure you'll agree it's basically awesome. I've also heard the song quite a lot on the Boneyard - especially at lunchtime.
Here's the song list of the new CD:
Shine Light for Me
You Showed Me How 2 Love
Good 2B Alive
Steelheart also produced a promo video for the song "LOL." According to YouTube, that promo clip was posted less than 20 hours before the time of this article. That means many of you will see the clip for the first time right here.
