Chastain Hair Metal Band

There were a lot of testosterone laden guitar players of the 80's who wanted nothing more than to play their guitar faster than a hummingbird with a nectarized I.V.  David T. Chastain was one of those guys.  Chastain was formed in 1984 (Cincinnati) by the president of Shrapnel Records, who was looking for a talented musical outlet for a little known vocalist named Leather Leone (and no, Leather was not her given name). 

In Chastain's own words, the band members only got together once per year to record new music, and then went about the business of their solo careers the rest of the time.  Things started getting better for the band, however, as some of their late 80's releases starting earning more recognition, and the band began touring the world until the early 1990's.  Chastain, with various different members, continued to produce new music for several years after the heyday of hair metal.   

If you like virtuosos such as Vinnie Moore, Jason Becker, Yngwie Malmsteen, and Impellitteri, then you just might get a kick out of Chastain.
