Profile In 1987 Mark O’Dette was looking for musicians to replace other members who left for other bands. One was the guitarist David Shankle who left the band and joined Manowar, then Mark did what he does best – find the best musicians available. He recruited a 18-year-old virtuoso named John Craig, Latimer slipped in Dummer Kevin Terry Chandler and stole a local band. O’Dette was born, and became one of rock acts of the most successful in Chicago. 

Chicago quartet recorded some demos over there in ’89, but until 2006 saw the light … Little is known of this fabulous band that could only release this EP with five songs very catchy. O’Dette started to function as support for many national touring bands, but found great success in the Midwest as a comedian in clubs like “The Thirsty Whale”, “Riviera”, “The mirage” and others.

Hard Rock tune was a very commercial and quite common at the time, but that does not matter.  Mark O’Dette’s voice is quite interesting and should be appreciated while the lead guitarist was quite sweeping solos.
