Hurricanes are nasty, destructive,
unpredictable events caused by nature. Some how these guys
don't scare us. The band Hurricane has a bit of an
interesting background. Two of the band members, Robert Sarzo
(guitar) and Tony Cavazo (bass), were actually the younger brothers of
Quiet Riot's Carlos Cavazo and Rudy Sarzo (respectively).
After putting a band together, which included Kelly
Hansen on vocals (later a singer for Foreigner), Hurricane had to
Take What You Want.
album due to low record label interest. However, tenacity on the
touring circuit kept the dream alive, and it wasn't long before
Hurricane was the opening act for Stryper (on their 1986 To Hell with
the Devil tour) and on the same label (Enigma).
In 1988, Hurricane released,
Over the Edge, an album that charted at 92 on the Billboard Top
100. Many of you might remember the song "I'm On to You" from that
album, or maybe even the Alice Cooper cover "I'm Eighteen". By
1989, Sarzo had left the band, and although their 1990 release, Slave
to the Thrill was a good album, the timing just wasn't there to
sustain a long term effort.
By 2001, the band had reunited (not all original members)
and released a new album. At the time of this writing, the
Hurricane Discography was as follows:1985: Take What You Want
1988: Over the Edge
