hair story

House of Lords was formed in 1987 by former Angel member and keyboardist Gregg Giuffria following his solo project Giuffria. After listening to demos, originally intended for Giuffria’s third record – a record deal with Gene Simmons’ company Simmons Records was agreed upon, on two conditions- to change the band’s name (to House of Lords) and to recruit a new lead singer.

House of Lords’ eponymous debut was released in 1988, featuring a heavier sound than Giuffria’s and less prominent keyboards. The album featured one minor hit, “I Wanna Be Loved” (Hot 100 No. 58). The Stan Bush penned “Love Don’t Lie” was the second single but despite MTV airplay, failed to chart. Their next album was 1990’s Sahara, and featured a list of guest musicians. Other notable contributions to the album came from Doug Aldrich, Rick Nielsen, Chris Impellitteri, Mandy Meyer, David Glen Eisley, Robin Zander, Mike Tramp, Steve Plunkett and Ron Keel. Deliberately more guitar-oriented than the debut, the album hit No. 120 on the charts and in the wake of the successful single “Can’t Find My Way Home”… (from Wikipedia)
