How did I miss this?
I was listening to the radio yesterday when Corey Hart's "Sunglasses at Night" came on. I had always thought the riff was cool, but for some reason the rest of the guitar work really caught my attention and got me wondering who played lead. Found out it was a guy named Andy Barnett who played with Adrian Smith in Urchin (before Iron Maiden) and later ASAP. I had read a good review for ASAP in a guitar magazine back in the 80s, but never checked it out. Wow - my loss!
Definitely not Maiden - keyboard heavy and actually Adrian's singing and some of the songs remind me more of Bryan Adams - but some great playing by Smith, Barnett and Dave Colwell. So now I'm checking out Psycho Motel and The Untouchables as well. Don't remember seeing any videos either, but here's 'Silver and Gold':

The ASAP thing was a real disappointment I remember.
