Early 80's band from PA?

PostBy: Richard S. On: Sun Mar 03, 2013 7:36 pm

This is driving me nuts. There was band in the early 80's that almost sure was from PA, I think they may even have been from the Wyoming Valley. They had fairly big hit that I believe went national. It was like a ballad and it was pop type band. Anybody know the Band or the song?

I keep coming back to Sister Christian from Night Ranger but I could swear that it isn't it and Night Ranger doesn't fit the bill for being local.

Nope, the song was ballad. It was getting air play.

This band didn't go big, they had that one tune and that was it if remember correctly.

I already looked on Wiki's page and about 100 other sites. CAN'T FIND IT.

Was it the Badlees/ Diamonds in the Coal. If this wasnt what you were thinking its a must listen

I always wondered if any of you ever heard these guys. I hears them in Binghamton jus before this album came out.

The Badlees used to play quite often at the world famous Fuzzy Bunny. I used to see signs for them at a lot of other bars and clubs in central PA. I can’t remember if I ever heard them or not because we were busy drinking Yuengling and killing brain cells.:cheers: :cheers:
