Live Albums(EDIT)


Intro(EDIT)

A great straight-ahead hard rock, pop metal band that had minor success on the tail end of the glam movement, even though they were more of a no-frills rock group.
Formed in Oakland, California by Derek Davis (vocals), Ron Freschi (guitar), Danny De La Rosa (guitar), Robb Reid (bass) and Jamey Pacheco (drums). They became the first hard rock band ever signed to Arista records and the debut album reached the Top 100 on the Billboard charts during its 35 week run, due in part to the minor success of the single “Bang Go The Bells.” But all went quiet after the awesome second album. In 1994, upset with the music business and changing musical tide, Babylon A.D. split up.


History(EDIT)

In 1998 the group reformed minus Reid, who no longer wanted to tour. Jamey’s younger brother Eric Pacheco was brought in as the new bassist, and the band recorded an American Blitzkrieg on a shoestring budget of $5000, and released it on their own independent label in July of 2000.

Davis and Jamey Pacheco are currently in American Blues Box, but Babylon A.D. will likely resurface every now and again. Freschi is currently working on an album with his new band Syrym.
