After the demise of Thin Lizzy, guitarist Scott Gorham first cooled his engines and then formed 21 Guns, a band fit for purpose, boasting both precision and power. Joining Scott in this new venture was an all American line-up, consisting of co-writer, bassist and keyboard player Leif Johansen (Phenomena), drummer Mike Sturgis (Asia) and vocalist Thomas La Verdi, previously with cult AOR unit A440. Originally released in 1992, all would have been well and good if only the grunge revolution wasn't in full swing. With their melodic and polished sheen 21 Guns were ostracised by some quarters of the media for sounding dated and being part of a musical heritage that was now rapidly becoming passé. Of course, with the benefit of hindsight we can clearly see that 'Salute' is one of the finest rock albums of any era, allowing Scott Gorham to unleash stupendous guitar work and spectacularly crafted songs.
