White Lion was a hard rock/heavy metal music band of the 1980s and early 1990s. The band was formed in New York City in 1984 by Denmark-born vocalist Mike Tramp. After moving from Denmark, Mike met guitarist Vito Bratta, forming a band.

Later, the band grew to include drummer Nicki Capozzi and bassist Felix Robinson. The band was signed by a small label called Grand Slam records in January 1985. While recording the song The Road to Valhalla, both Capozzi and Robinson left the band. Nicki Capozzi was replaced by Dan Spitz, and Felix Robinson was replaced by James Lomenzo. Within a month of joining, Dan spitz left and was replaced by former Anthrax drummer Greg D'Angelo.

The band then finished their debut album, Fight to Survive, which was released on November 9, 1985. A few months later, Grand Slam records went bankrupt.

In 1986, White Lion, with a fictitious "female" member, had a brief part in the Tom Hanks/Shelley Long movie The Money Pit. Early in 1987, the band was signed by Atlantic Records. By then, their debut album was out of print and extremely hard to find.

On June 21, 1987, their second album, Pride, was released (the same day as Keel's Keel album, and Helix's Wild in The Streets) The first single from Pride was 'Wait/Don't Give Up, released on June 1, 1987. However, it took seven months before the song became a hit.

The Pride tour started in July 1987 as White Lion opened for Ace Frehley's 80s band Frehley's Comet. In September 1987, White Lion became the opening band for KISS (who had just started their Crazy Nights tour).

White Lion spent the rest of 1987 on tour with KISS. In January 1988 started opening for AC/DC on their Blow Up Your Video tour.

While opening for AC/DC, the Pride album and Wait single finally charted. Wait hit #8 on the singles chart, while Pride stalled at #11 on the album chart.

In August 1988, the album's second single Tell Me stopped at #58. Around the time this single was released, White Lion played at the Ritz club in New York City. Like Guns N' Roses, White Lion's show at the Ritz was filmed and later aired on MTV.

White Lion concluded the Pride tour by opening for Stryper from September 1988 to February 1989 during Stryper's In God We Trust tour. The Pride album's third single When The Children Cry made it to #3, making Pride one of about 18 hard rock albums to ever have multiple top 10 hits.

In August 1989, White Lion released their third album Big Game. This was followed, in 1991, by Mane Attraction. Unfortunately, by the end of 1991, White Lion had broken up.

As an afterthought, Atlantic Records released the Best of White Lion compilation album in 1992. It must be noted that the song "Radar Love" was included in this album, a cover considered by many, one of the best ever made.

In 1993, bassist James Lomenzo joined former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde in a band called Pride and Glory, while vocalist Mike Tramp started a solo career.

Towards the end of 2003, Mike Tramp said that White Lion was planning to reunite. This statement was quickly denied by the other members.

While opening for AC/DC, the Pride album and Wait single finally charted. His 1967 recording of "Music to Watch Girls By" was a surprise hit in England in 2003, following closely on the heels of a new duet of "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" with a British model and singer, Denise Van Outen. In January 1988 started opening for AC/DC on their Blow Up Your Video tour. He continues to do 8-12 shows a week from September to December and occasionally makes tours of Europe earlier in the year.

White Lion spent the rest of 1987 on tour with KISS. In the early 1990s, Williams gave up most of his touring schedule in order to open his own theatre in Branson, Missouri, the Andy Williams Moon River Theater. In September 1987, White Lion became the opening band for KISS (who had just started their Crazy Nights tour). He returned to television to do a syndicated half-hour series in 1976-77. The Pride tour started in July 1987 as White Lion opened for Ace Frehley's 80s band Frehley's Comet. He hosted the Grammy Awards for three consecutive years in the 1970s. However, it took seven months before the song became a hit. Williams has recorded eight Christmas albums over the years.

On June 21, 1987, their second album, Pride, was released (the same day as Keel's Keel album, and Helix's Wild in The Streets) The first single from Pride was 'Wait/Don't Give Up, released on June 1, 1987. His Christmas specials, which appeared regularly until 1974 and intermittently from 1982 into the 1990s, were among the most popular of the genre. By then, their debut album was out of print and extremely hard to find. He gave up the variety show in 1971 while it was still popular and retrenched to three specials per year. Early in 1987, the band was signed by Atlantic Records. Among his series regulars were the Osmond Brothers. In 1986, White Lion, with a fictitious "female" member, had a brief part in the Tom Hanks/Shelley Long movie The Money Pit. This series, "The Andy Williams Show," won three Emmy Awards for outstanding variety program.

A few months later, Grand Slam records went bankrupt. Williams also competed in the teenage-oriented singles market as well and had some hit singles including "Can't Get Used to Losing You," "Happy Heart," and "(Where Do I Begin) Love Story." Building on his experience with Allen and some short-term variety shows in the 1950s, he became the star of his own weekly television variety show in 1962. The band then finished their debut album, Fight to Survive, which was released on November 9, 1985. This was repeated the next year with the pair's "Days of Wine and Roses" (which also won), Mancini's "Dear Heart" at the 1965 awards and "The Sweetheart Tree" (also written with Mercer) at the 1966 awards. Within a month of joining, Dan spitz left and was replaced by former Anthrax drummer Greg D'Angelo. Williams was asked to sing Mancini and Johnny Mercer's song "Moon River" at the 1962 Oscar Awards (where it won), and it quickly became Williams's theme song. Nicki Capozzi was replaced by Dan Spitz, and Felix Robinson was replaced by James Lomenzo. Williams forged a collaborative relationship with Henry Mancini, although they never recorded together.

While recording the song The Road to Valhalla, both Capozzi and Robinson left the band. Among his hit albums from this period were "Moon River," "Days of Wine and Roses" (number one for 16 weeks in mid-1963), "Dear Heart," "The Shadow of Your Smile," "Love, Andy," "Get Together with Andy Williams," and "Love Story.". The band was signed by a small label called Grand Slam records in January 1985. By 1973 he had earned as many as 17 Gold records.

After moving from Denmark, Mike met guitarist Vito Bratta, forming a band. During the 1960s, Williams became one of the most popular vocalists in the country and signed what was to that time the biggest recording contract in history.

The band was formed in New York City in 1984 by Denmark-born vocalist Mike Tramp. Two top ten hits from the Cadence era, "Butterfly" and "I Like Your Kind of Love" were apparently believed to not suit Williams's later style; they were not included on a Columbia reissue of his Cadence greatest hits in the 1960s.

His third single, "Canadian Sunset' (1956) hit the Top Ten, and was soon followed his only Billboard #1 hit, "Butterfly" (a cover of a Charlie Gracie record on which Williams imitated Elvis Presley). After landing a spot as a regular on Steve Allen's Tonight Show in 1955, he was signed to a recording contract with Cadence Records, a small label in New York run by conductor Archie Bleyer. He recorded six sides for RCA's label "X," but none of them were popular hits. Williams's solo career began in 1952 after his brothers left the act.

This led to a nightclub act with Kay Thompson, a comedian, from 1947 to 1951. They appeared with Bing Crosby on the hit record "Swinging on a Star" (1944). Williams graduated from high school in Cincinnati. Williams and his three older brothers Bob, Dick, and Don, formed a quartet, the Williams Brothers, in the late 1930s, and they performed on radio in the Midwest, first at WHO in Des Moines, Iowa, and later at WLS in Chicago and WLW in Cincinnati.
