Silverhead : More Than Your Mouth Can Hold: The Complete Recordings 1972 – 1974
6CD Box Review – Michael Des Barres – Cherry Red Records
If you think you don’t know lead singer Michael Des Barres from Silverhead, you do!
He has probably been in every living room in the world via his acting roles. As a vocalist he has influenced many of rockr biggest names and I cannot imagine Paul Stanley, David Lee Roth, Steve Tyler, Motley Crue without thinking of Michael Des Barres.
Silverhead should have been huge and it was starting to happen just before Purple Records pulled the plug. This box set contains both the studio albums ‘Silverhead’, 16 and Savaged, the Live at the Rainbow album and three further CDs of live material.
I also cover the 2016 reissues and touch on Michaels later career with Detective, Chequered Past, The Power Station, Live Aid and coming right up to date with his documentary, new release and his radio show with Steven Van Zandt.
