NORTHERN STARR


This is one ass-kicking band!


By 1980, Starr had formed a new band in Wisconsin called GREY STAR, playing all new original songs sometimes with 5 part harmony vocals, and laid down a two song demo recorded with BLUE OYSTER CULT producer Murray Krugman.
Grey Star toured about 300 days a year in 1980 and '81, taking a break in July of 1981 to record their "Grey Star" album. The album was released with financial help from a friend of the band in November of '81, with only a few thousand copies pressed which the band sold at their shows.
In 1982 the band signed a management contract with Charlie Brusco in Atlanta, he was the manager of the Outlaws and is the current manger of Lynrd Skynrd. Though he was unable to get the band a record deal he did help expand their bookings in the south. Charlie was also able to get the band a gig with the Who in December of 1981 when they played to 10,000 people in their hometown Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
