Artist Biography

After quitting the heavy metal band Virgin Steele in 1984, guitarist Jack Starr teamed up with ex-Riot vocalist Rhett Forrester and former Rods rhythm section Gary Bordonaro and Carl Canedy. They delivered Out Of The Darkness in 1984, a subtle combination of aggression, melody and dynamics. Starr dissolved the band soon after the album came out, preferring instead to use a new set of backing musicians on each subsequent release. Over the next four albums he moved away from his metallic roots, towards more commercial, arena-style rock typified by Bon Jovi and Dokken. Starr is one of the more original new-style, techno-wizard guitarists, but has yet to receive the recognition his talents undoubtedly deserve. He has recently opted to record under the band name of Burning Starr.
