Formed by Gramm in 1990, Shadow King was an hard rock supergroup featuring future Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell, drummer Kevin Valentine, and bass player Bruce Turgon. The band released one self-titled album in 1991.
Speaking about working with Campbell, Lou was full of praise for the player, and his time working with him. “It was fantastic. He was a great guy. I enjoyed working with him when we recorded the album and the one show we played", he said. "He was very creative. He’s got the true spirit of rock in him, and when Shadow King broke up, I’m glad he moved on to a great band like Def Leppard”.
In existence for just over a year, when asked what it was that broke Shadow King up, Lou responded; “I’m honestly not sure. I think there wasn’t a lot of record support, a lot of support from the label”.
Going on to talk about his legacy, and in particular ‘Foreigner 4’, which has sold over six million copies, the singer said; “It think the album is an awesome, awesome album, so I’m very proud of it”.
Concluding, Gramm, who has suffered from health issues in the past said; “I feel good, you know? Looking back, those were great times”.
Meanwhile, in a story that has since went viral, eonmusic also caught up with Dee Snider at the bash, where the Twisted Sister singer confirmed there are "no plans" for the band to work together in there future following their appearance at the Metal Hall of Fame.
