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.

Rod Argent formed a band called Argent, while Blunstone eventually launched a solo career. 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. Since the group refused to reform, various concocted groups called "the Zombies" were created to tour for a time.

As an afterthought, Atlantic Records released the Best of White Lion compilation album in 1992. In 1969, the song became a huge hit. Unfortunately, by the end of 1991, White Lion had broken up. Finally, "Time of the Season" was released as a single well after the album was released. This was followed, in 1991, by Mane Attraction. The album sold little, and was only released in the US at all because Al Kooper vouched for it. In August 1989, White Lion released their third album Big Game. By the time Odessey and Oracle was released in the spring of 1968, the band had broken up.

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. The resulting concept album, Odessey and Oracle, was one of the very first to utilize a Mellotron, as the band's budget did not allow for the hiring of session musicians. White Lion concluded the Pride tour by opening for Stryper from September 1988 to February 1989 during Stryper's In God We Trust tour. With their career almost over, the Zombies signed to CBS Records for one final LP, only the second of the career and the only one that would be designed as an LP from the beginning, instead of being a motley collection of random songs. Like Guns N' Roses, White Lion's show at the Ritz was filmed and later aired on MTV. Although subsequent recordings such as "I Love You," "Indication" and "Is This the Dream" were of uniformly high quality, none achieved the success of "She's Not There" and "Tell Her No.". Around the time this single was released, White Lion played at the Ritz club in New York City. In 1965 their "Tell Her No" also became a huge seller in both England and the United States.

In August 1988, the album's second single Tell Me stopped at #58. After winning a beat-group competition sponsored by the London Evening News, the Zombies signed to Decca and recorded their first hit, "She's Not There,", (Argent's second song, written specifically for this session), which was released in mid-1964. Wait hit #8 on the singles chart, while Pride stalled at #11 on the album chart. The group formed in 1961 in St Albans, England, and gained their initial reputation playing the Old Verulamians Rugby Club in that town. While opening for AC/DC, the Pride album and Wait single finally charted. Somewhat underrated during their lifetime, they are now regarded as one of the greatest of all 1960s pop groups. In January 1988 started opening for AC/DC on their Blow Up Your Video tour. Argent's flashy, jazzy piano leads and Blunstone's voice were the hallmarks of the band.

White Lion spent the rest of 1987 on tour with KISS. The group consisted of Chris White, Rod Argent, Colin Blunstone, Paul Atkinson, and Hugh Grundy. In September 1987, White Lion became the opening band for KISS (who had just started their Crazy Nights tour). The Zombies were a 1960s pop music band known for complex harmonies and jazz-influenced music. The Pride tour started in July 1987 as White Lion opened for Ace Frehley's 80s band Frehley's Comet. For the undead creature of Vodun lore, see zombie.. However, it took seven months before the song became a hit. "Over the course of the ensuing decades, [The Zombies'] final album...Odessey and Oracle - a beautifully arranged, harmony drenched pristine pop paean to memory, the changing seasons, the passage of time and lost love - slowly began to be recognised as one of the greatest albums of the 1960s." New York Times (1998).
