Hit songs include “Youth Gone Wild,” “I Remember You,” “18 and Life,” “We Are The Damned,” “Monkey Business” and “Let’s Go.”

The Hollywood-based group Warrant hit it big in 1989 with their debut album “Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich.” The album produced radio and MTV chart toppers “Down Boys,” “Sometimes She Cries,” and the massive hit “Heaven,” which reached No. 1 in Rolling Stone and No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. Hit songs include “Cherry Pie,” “Heaven,” “Down Boys,” “Sometimes She Cries” and “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.”

The first heavy metal band to top the pop album chart on Billboard magazine, Quiet Riot became an overnight sensation thanks to their monster 1983 smash album “Metal Health.” The band has sold over 15 million records worldwide and has over 2.8 million monthly Spotify listeners. Hit songs include “Cum On Feel The Noize,” “Bang Your Head (Metal Health),” “Mama Weer All Crazee Now,” “Slick Black Cadillac” and “The Wild And The Young.”

Kip Winger was initially part of Alice Cooper’s band, before going on to fame with his own band, Winger. The band Winger crafted a debut album that combined hard-pop melodies with plenty of proggy, technically dazzling instrumental work. Winger brings his solo acoustic tour to Paso Robles with hit songs including “Seventeen,” “Headed For A Heartbreak,” “Can’t Get Enuff,” “Easy Come Easy Go” and “Miles Away.”
