A hard rock group from the USA formed in the late 80s, Dead Ringer featured Charlie Huhn (vocals), Jay Johnson (guitar), Joe Bouchard (b. 9 November 1948; keyboards, ex-Blue Öyster Cult), Dennis Dunaway (bass) and Neal Smith (drums; ex-Alice Cooper). Huhn was formerly vocalist for Victory, but Dead Ringer’s sole release, 1989’s Electrocution Of The Heart debut, suffered from poor production. Songs that were already laboured were further obscured by a thin mix and the result was negligible critical and popular interest - despite a much stronger reputation for their live work.
