Guitarist Jack Starr initially made his name with the East Coast metal band Virgin Steele during the early '80s, playing on their first two albums (1982's self-titled debut and 1983's Guardians of the Flame) before embarking on a solo career. Starr formed a backing band called Burning Starr, which bowed in 1984 with Out of the Darkness. Further albums followed at a steady clip: 1985's Rock the American Way, 1986's No Turning Back, 1987's Blaze of Glory, and 1989's The Orange Album. Taking a new direction for the '90s, Starr recorded an all-instrumental effort titled A Minor Disturbance in 1990 and subsequently joined the band Strider, which issued a self-titled debut the following year. In 1994, Starr self-released a collaborative project called Oxgen I (on cassette only) and spent much of the remainder of the decade backing other acts. In 1999, he resurfaced with the Jack Starr Blues Band, a project that allowed him to explore his long-dormant love for electric blues and blues-rock.
