There will always be a special place in my metal-loving heart for White Lion. They were actually the first band I ever saw in concert, as they opened for AC/DC on the 1988 Blow Up Your Video Tour. Not to mention, James Lomenzo is probably my favorite bassist of all time, as he's gone on to play with the likes of Black Label Society and Megadeth after his stint in White Lion.
So without further ado, here are five of White Lion's best songs!
When the Children Cry
Broken Heart (Old Version)
Broken Heart (Later Version)
And if you want to know why James Lomenzo is my favorite bass player, watch the first thirty seconds of this video (and the rest, if you're a Megadeth fan--just ignore the fact that they got the song title wrong--it's Washington is Next, not Head Crusher):
