anger Danger was started in 1988 by Bruno Ravel (ex-Michael Bolton; bass), who recruited Ted Poley (ex-Prophet; vocals), Kasey Smith (keyboards) and Steve West (drums) with Andy Timmons (guitar) replacing Tony Rev who in turn was a replacement for Al Pitrelli during the recording of their 1989 self-titled debut. The self-titled debut album, recorded on the 'CBS' subsidiary 'Imagine', subsequently hit the U.S. 88 mostly on the weight of the track gone single, Bang Bang, that made 49 U.S. on its own. Sounding much like Motley Crue and WhiteLion, Danger Danger's sound was obsolete by the time their follow-up Screw It! emerged in 1992. Nevertheless, the British seemed to like it, sending several of the tracks as singles up their charts.
Danger Danger had a brief split but returned in form with Canadian Paul Lane replacing Poley to record Dawn (1995), Four The Hard Way (1997), The Return Of Great Gildersleeves (2000) and Cockroach (2001), their first live effort.
