Black 'N' Blue was formed in 1981 in #Portland #OR with lineup: Jaime St. James (vocals), Tommy Thayer (guitar), Jeff Warner (guitar), Patrick Young (bass), and Peter Holmes (drums). They moved to LA in 1982 and released their self-titled debut album in 1984, followed by 1985 "Without Love" , "Nasty Nasty" 1986 and "In Heat" in 1988, but none were notably successful, and they broke up in 1989.
However they reunited in early 2000 (excl. Tommy Thayer which was playing with KISS at that time and replaced by Shawn Sonnenschein). The result "Hell Yeah!" which was supposed for 2003 released but didn't see the light until 2011. This make the group first album in 23 years.
