Reb Beach is an awesome musician, but Winger was just... a pathetic product. I'm with Beavis & Butthead regarding that band shrug

Everyone in that band is very talented.

IMO - Winger was a lot better than most of the of Warrant and Danger Danger type bands of the 80's and I still listen to their stuff regularly. The Pull album is really good - start to finish.

Metallica ruined that band with the Nothing Else Matters video and then Beavis and Butthead put the last nail in the coffin. That's a pretty lousy break considering the Winger guys worked hard to get where they were at the time.

That's the cost for doing cheesy charts pop that the management ordered shrug happens to the best musicians when they sell out. Also that whole glam/hairspray thing was already dying at the time, so it was doomed anyway.


Reb is doing fine with Whitesnake and he was the star in that band IMO.

I watched that video this morning and have had that dang song stuck in my head all day! My wife said, "what the fuck are you singing?" A song about statutory rape I guess shrug
I'll give it to Reb - he has some killer chops. I also didn't realize how much that song sounds like Lay it Down. That was the problem though - the same shit for 10 years - it got old. They were ripe for the abuse!

Winger were very underrated. All excellent musicians and I really like Kip’s voice. So many great tunes. Also, he later did a project with his brothers and they made a great band together :thumbs :headbang

I still listen to Winger and stuck with them through all the mud slinging and sudden shifts in music genres.

The bands first two albums were pretty derivative of the 80’s radio/video friendly formula that sold albums from which the genre they represented manifested into.

With their album Pull and onwards to Winger IV, Karma and Better Days Coming the band managed to successfully distance themselves from their 80’s glam rocker days and set forth to compose songs that were against stereotype without alienating their fan base.

A talented group of humble musicians whom for the most part all ‘got along’ on and off the stage/road and still come together and produce excellent music.

To add…

Reb Beach’s 2020 solo album ‘A View from the Inside’ is an excellent instrumental album that showcases Reb’s playing and songwriting abilities very well.

It’s not all 80’s super-shredder stuff either, more like jazz, fusion and other eclectic genres mixed together for a well rounded album.

I highly recommend it for those who appreciate his playing.
