With their legendary debut album, ‘Want Some’, having become a classic of the early 90’s Hard Rock scene, Memphis, Tennessee Hard Rockers Roxy Blue are back next Friday 9th August with their first album of new material in 27 years (see today's Video Of The Day). Original members Todd Poole (vocals), Josh Weil (bass) and Scotty Trammell (drums) are now joined by guitarist Jeffrey Wade Caughron, after Sid ‘Boogie’ Fletcher left the music business for a successful career in dentistry. Formed in 1989, Roxy Blue played every gig they could to get themselves noticed in the Memphis scene. Crammed together in a studio apartment above Cotton Row Studios in the city, they were constantly writing and recording songs and living a 24-hour Rock 'n' Roll lifestyle many miles away from the Sunset Strip of Los Angeles. Swiftly selling out club shows and creating a buzz, legendary A&R guru Tom Zutaut flew the band to LA to sign them, with Guns N’ Roses producer Mike Clink chosen to produce their debut album. Clink and Roxy Blue clicked and the result was 1992’s ‘Want Some’.
