White Lion is actually one of our favorite bands here at www.ilovethe80s.com.  White Lion was formed in 1983 by Danish vocalist Mike Tramp and American guitar rocker Vito Bratta in New York City.  Funny thing is, with a name like Vita Bratta, you would think their origins would have been reversed. 

White Lion signed with Elektra in 1984, and their debut release was soon released (Fight to Survive).  Elektra did not like the final recording of this album, so they released the band.  RCA subsequently released the album in Japan, Grand Slam Records released it in the USA (1985), and the rest is history.  This album charted at 151 out of 200 on the Billboard Charts.  Some of you may remember the song "Broken Heart" from this release.

By 1987, White Lion had been signed by Atlantic Records, and Pride was released the same year and charted at number 11.   Many of you will remember the hit songs "Wait" and "When the Children Cry" from this release, the videos of which received heavy rotation on MTV.  In support of the album, White Lion toured with Ace Frehley, Aerosmith, Stryper, Ozzy, Kiss, and AC/DC.  Although their 1989 release, Big Game, did not chart as high, it still included a couple of songs you may remember ("Little Fighter" and the "Radar Love" cover). 

By 1992, White Lion had gone their separate ways.  Attempts to reunite the band failed, as Mike Tramp released new material under the name Mike Tramp's White Lion and continued touring.  At the time of this writing in 2012, it appeared that Bratta would not be getting back with the band.  The band's 1999 and 2008 releases are sans Bratta (see below).  At the time of this writing, the White Lion Discography was as follows:
