Robin Zander also has a couple of solo studio albums on his enviable Rockin’ resume; these solo albums were released back in 1993 and 2010, respectively.
Above: Robin Zander’s Countryside BLVD studio album from 2010. It is out-of-print and very, very hard to find. Yes, it’s rare, man. Best Metal Buddy Scott Coverdale does own an original copy of this CD; he’s damn lucky for that!
Robin Zander joined Cheap Trick after original vocalist Randy “Xeno” Hogan departed from the band. Robin Zander has sung on ALL sixteen Cheap Trick studio albums, along with every live album.
