First time reissued and newly remastered with two bonus tracks and full booklet. Straight-up rock'n'roll in the same vein as Skid Row.

McQueen Street was formed in Montgomery, Alabama in 1987 by Derek & Chris Welsh. Michael Cummings (Powers) joined the band and became the lead guitarist shortly thereafter.

They toured throughout the southeast United States and did so well that they acquired a record deal from SBK Records, a division of EMI.

After releasing their debut album, "McQueen Street" in 1991, produced by well-known Tom Werman, hit song "In Heaven" peaked at #32 on the Billboard Rock charts and #1 on the European rock charts.

The album also included hit single "Time". Also, "My Religion" did well on MTV's own Headbangers Ball.

At this point, it seemed like nothing could stop the band. But unfortunately, the grunge evolution came pouring in right at McQueen Street's peak, and just before the release of their long-expected second album, the band parted ways.

Drummer Chris Welsh passed away due to viral sickness shortly after. The phone started ringing when the singer of Puddle of Mudd decided to wear a McQueen Street "Stick It" shirt in the "She Hates Me" video.

Following a 10-year hiatus, singer Derek Welsh released "McQueen Street 2" with Ring of Four Records.

The album included fan favourites such as "World Machine", "Bad Moon", and "What About Jane?".

In 2018, Derek Welsh began writing for the third McQueen Street album. As of 2020, McQueen Street has released two new songs, "Outside In" and "One Way Ticket".

The latter of which reached #1 on the underground rock charts. McQueen Street is one of those albums that you play in your car with the windows rolled down.

This album deserved a hell of a lot more credit than what it got and is definitely worth checking out! SLEAZEROXX.COM - Featuring: Jeff Scott Soto & Steve Stevens - Dedicated to the memory of Chris Welsh.
