Jorn Lande has been in many bands over the years, so I am including them too Martin. Masterplan is one of them, a German power metal band that he's done 3 albums with.

To name just a few (Some of these may perhaps be a tad borderline, but stay with me):

Michael Bolton - S/T & Everybody's Crazy
The Strand - S/T
Michael Thompson Band - How Long
Gregg Rolie - ******
Signal - Loud & Clear
David Roberts - All Dressed Up
Unruly Child - S/T
Strangeways - S/T, Native Sons & Walk in the Fire
Eric Martin - S/T & I'm Only Fooling Myself
Jim Jidhed - Jim
Red Dawn - Never Say Surrender
Misha Calvin - Evolution (Maybe a bit too heavy in places to fully qualify)

Nice choices. Signal's Loud and Clear is criminally underrated as are most albums featuring Mark (Marcie) Free.

Never heard of The Strand but will check em out.

Thank you, I very much enjoyed your choices too! I have to plead ignorance on the Distance album, I can't say I'd ever actually heard of its existence before you mentioned it. Based on a few of the songs I've listened to on YouTube though, I'll have to correct that!

The Strand album is effectively a "Toto Jr." scenario, I think it was basically Boz Scagg's then-current solo band with a different singer, the great Rick "Moon" Calhoun. Jeff Porcaro produced the album too, so if you're fan of early-mid 80s Toto, you'll be in for a treat. It was very hard to get until around a year ago, when it was reissued on CD for, I think, the first time ever.

Just a Little More Time


Children of the Night


Can't Look Back (My favourite song on the album, I think Jeff Porcaro actually plays on this one)
