Buyer's Guide: Night Ranger
Still going strong after more than 30 years, the AOR cult crew have sold millions on the back of some all-time classic songs.
In any genre of music, there are those who become superstars, those who never make it big, and in-between, those who climb that greasy pole almost to the top, only to slip back down into relative obscurity.
Such was the fate of Night Ranger, one of the great all-American rock bands. They couldn’t quite reach the level of success that was enjoyed by the giants of AOR: Boston, Journey, Foreigner, Survivor, Toto. But while many great melodic rock bands were destined to remain cult heroes – bands such as New England, Balance, Valentine and Diving For Pearls – it was a different story for Night Ranger.
