RIP Ray Gillen

Badlands was a hard rock band formed by Jake E. Lee, Ray Gillen, and Eric Singer after Jake E. Lee was fired from Ozzy Osbourne. They soon recruited bassist Greg Chaisson and released their debut album.

Winter's Call

I have always loved Ray Gillen's voice. Winter's Call is just beautiful, and badass all at the same time.


After the release of the debut album, Eric Singer quit the band and was replaced with Jeff Martin of Racer X and Leatherwolf. Then Badlands released Voodoo Highway.

The Dusk album was released in Japan. The songs were recorded between 1992-1993 originally as a demo. There were heavy tensions between Jake E. Lee and Ray Gillen during this time, which led to Ray Gillen leaving the band. This album was released many years after the band was dissolved.

It's too damn bad that the band fell apart. Ray Gillen's dimise was a huge loss to the hard rock community. Dude had a hell of a voice, and it fit perfectly in those first two Badlands albums. The first album is nearly flawless. We got to see and hear something from Jake E Lee that was held back a bit in his time with Ozzy (which was also brilliant, imho).

I haven't listened to Dusk in a while. I should give that a spin again.
