Shaw Blades (1993-present): a Heavy Metal band from Detroit, Michigan, USA.
merican musical duo Shaw Blades was formed by Tommy Shaw (of Styx) and Jack Blades (of Night Ranger), both of whom played in the supergroup Damn Yankees alongside Ted Nugent. The act is an informal duo which has produced two albums between other projects, Hallucination (1995) and Influence (2007). The first two tracks on the former (My Hallucination and I'll Always Be with You) received modest airplay. The latter album consisted solely of 1960s and 1970s cover songs that influenced the pair. Blades' son Colin, an experimental songwriter, contributed backing vocals and arrangements to the album also. Shaw Blades also recorded a cover of the Christmas song The Twelve Days of Christmas on the A Classic Rock Christmas (2002) compilation album by various classic rock artists. The act occasionally tours.
