Looking Glass to Fallen Angels to Starz

Of course we all know the song “Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl)” by the New Jersey band, Looking Glass.  But there is of course a back story.  After their second album failed to chart, the band reorganized, calling themselves Fallen Angels.  A year later, that band changed their name yet again and become a group called Starz.  Starz was a 1970’s heavy metal and power pop band from New Jersey, United States.  Despite a lack of big commercial success, the band has a lasting cult following and has been cited as a major influence by bands such as Mötley CrüePoison and Twisted Sister.

  1. I saw STARZ open up for Rush in 1978 (2nd row!). I thought they were awful!
