Dangerous Toys

Dangerous Toys band members

hair story

Dangerous Toys was formed in October 1987. Jason McMaster, singer for Watchtower, was invited by Tim Trembley to join his band, Onyxx, as singer. Onyxx included Scott Dalhover (guitar), Mark Geary (drums) and Mike Watson (bass).

In 1988, now calling themselves Dangerous Toys, the band was signed to Columbia Records after a publishing representative had signed them to a deal in March at South-By-Southwest. Soon afterwards Tim Trembley left the band and they were without a second guitarist. On their eponymous debut album, which was produced by Max Norman, Scott Dalhover played all the guitar tracks. Shortly before its release, guitarist Danny Aaron joined; despite not playing on the album, he appears on the back cover. Released in May 1989, Dangerous Toys gave the band its major breakthrough, peaking at number 65 on the Billboard 200, receiving gold certification by the RIAA, and the singles “Teas’n Pleas’n” and “Scared” enjoying heavy rotation on MTV’s Headbangers Ball. Dangerous Toys toured worldwide in support of the album during 1989 and 1990, performing from clubs to arenas and amphitheaters with such acts as The Cult, L.A. Guns, Stryper, Faster Pussycat, The Almighty, Bonham and Junkyard… (from Wikipedia)
