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.

This statement was quickly denied by the other members. The highest position in the US charts was #41 for "Angels". Towards the end of 2003, Mike Tramp said that White Lion was planning to reunite. Coincidental or not, much of what is written is utterly made up and probably attributable to a phalanx of publicity agents hired to get Williams's name in the papers when he is trying to market something to the public. 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. Bearing in mind the persistent rumours about his sexuality and the appearance of so many column inches devoted to Williams's real or imagined romantic conquests, whether gay or straight, it is interesting to note that these accounts typically coincide with the release of a latest album, single, or live performance. 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. A regular feature of his live performances is full-on french kisses with female fans plucked from the audience.

As an afterthought, Atlantic Records released the Best of White Lion compilation album in 1992. Williams seems to encourage an image as a womanizer and there are numerous widely-circulated Internet accounts,http://www.robbiewilliams.nu/ allegedly written by Williams's female sexual partners, extolling his considerable prowess as a lover. Unfortunately, by the end of 1991, White Lion had broken up. Speculation about his sexuality and romantic life is rampant in the British media. This was followed, in 1991, by Mane Attraction. Williams is single and lives in Los Angeles, California. In August 1989, White Lion released their third album Big Game. And in February 2005, Williams received the British music industry's award for the best song of the past quarter century, "Angels," the song William credits with giving him a career.

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 "Greatest Hits" album, released on 18th October, 2004, became one of the UK's biggest selling albums of all times. White Lion concluded the Pride tour by opening for Stryper from September 1988 to February 1989 during Stryper's In God We Trust tour. Another Duffy-Williams collaboration, "Misunderstood" appeared on the soundtrack of the "Bridget Jones Diary" sequel, "The Edge of Reason." and hit the charts at number eight. Like Guns N' Roses, White Lion's show at the Ritz was filmed and later aired on MTV. Armed with a new songwriting partner, Steven Duffy, Williams penned several new songs, including "Radio." In its first week of release, selling just over 40,000 copies, the single "Radio" went straight to number one. Around the time this single was released, White Lion played at the Ritz club in New York City. But Williams proved the naysayers wrong.

In August 1988, the album's second single Tell Me stopped at #58. The end of that partnership led to much speculation that Williams career was finished without Chambers. Wait hit #8 on the singles chart, while Pride stalled at #11 on the album chart. The Chris Heath biography, an instant bestseller, reveals why Williams severed all professional ties with with his long-time songwriter partner, Guy Chambers. While opening for AC/DC, the Pride album and Wait single finally charted. Leading up to Knebworth, in December 2003, Williams toured Australia and New Zealand with Duran Duran. In January 1988 started opening for AC/DC on their Blow Up Your Video tour. An official biography by Chris Heath "Feel", published in 2004, chronicled events that led up to to the Live Summer Tour 2003, during which Williams performed live to more than a million people over three days in August at Knebworth Park in Hertfordshire; while 3.5 million more watched live on television and on the Internet.

White Lion spent the rest of 1987 on tour with KISS. in 2002, the UK public voted Williams to be on the BBC's list of the 100 Greatest Britons. In September 1987, White Lion became the opening band for KISS (who had just started their Crazy Nights tour). The video also showed unsettling images of insects and reptiles. The Pride tour started in July 1987 as White Lion opened for Ace Frehley's 80s band Frehley's Comet. The video for the next "Escapology" single, "Come Undone," was censored by MTV Networks Europe for depicting a debauched (but fully-clothed) Williams having a three-way with two women sex. However, it took seven months before the song became a hit. The first single from it, "Feel," was a huge European hit.

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, they reunited six months later to work on the next album, Escapology, which was released in late 2002. By then, their debut album was out of print and extremely hard to find. In 2002 he stopped working with his long-term writing partner Guy Chambers. Early in 1987, the band was signed by Atlantic Records. Williams' cover of the Bobby Darin classic "Beyond the Sea" was included in the Finding Nemo soundtrack. In 1986, White Lion, with a fictitious "female" member, had a brief part in the Tom Hanks/Shelley Long movie The Money Pit. In 2002 he released an album called Swing When You're Winning in which his image was tamed down and he sang jazz, blues and pop standards from the fifties.

A few months later, Grand Slam records went bankrupt. His global success was cemented after a duet cover version of the Frank and Nancy Sinatra song "Somethin' Stupid" with Australian actress Nicole Kidman, who was fresh off of her Oscar-nomnated performance in Moulin Rouge. The band then finished their debut album, Fight to Survive, which was released on November 9, 1985. Williams has built quite a reputation for appearing nude (or nearly nude) in photographs, videos and live performances. Within a month of joining, Dan spitz left and was replaced by former Anthrax drummer Greg D'Angelo. The video's ending was cut by many TV stations around the world and the whole video was forbidden in some countries (VH1 Europe even made their own video out of recording studio footage). Nicki Capozzi was replaced by Dan Spitz, and Felix Robinson was replaced by James Lomenzo. It is said that the frontal nudity was edited out in the US while the gore was left in, whereas the opposite was true for the UK.

While recording the song The Road to Valhalla, both Capozzi and Robinson left the band. The video featured Williams in a roller disco as he stripped nude and then proceeded to strip off his own flesh, muscle tissue and organs until he was a dancing skeleton. The band was signed by a small label called Grand Slam records in January 1985. He broke the United States in 2000 with his hit song "Rock DJ".

Robbie expected to get some Noel-written songs so he could start a career. Before his rising as a superstar, Robbie used to hang in 1996 with the Gallagher brothers - Noel and Liam of then-famous Britpop stars Oasis. Originally a member of boy band Take That, he split from the group in 1995 and launched a solo career, following a highly publicized battle with drug and alcohol addiction during which he put on nearly 40 pounds (18 kg) and was often seen in public poorly dressed, dirty and unshaven.
