Adrenalin & DC Drive / Bio


During their 16-year tenure from 1977-1993, these east side Detroit rockers known first as Adrenalin and then as DC Drive created rugged, muscular, earnest working-man's music that was as much the epitome of Detroit as anything created by forebears such as Mitch Ryder or Bob Seger.

That the group's brief moments in the national spotlight - three albums and a minor hit, "Road of the Gypsy" in the movie "Iron Eagle" - does not diminish the passion the groups displayed as they slogged through the trenches.

As drummer Brian Pastoria notes, "That's what we initially set out to do - make music. That was the whole goal. We didn't get the breaks like some people, but the music still stands up."
