Welcome to Episode 169. In this episode we are hanging with Mark Slaughter from Slaughter.

Slaughter formed in 1988, in Las Vegas, Nevada from the ashes of The Vinnie Vincent Invasion. The original line up consisted of Mark, Dana Strum, Tim Kelly and Blas Elias. Following the tragic death of Kelly in 1998, Jeff “Blando” Bland was recruited.

Slaughter’s debut album Stick It to Ya had three singles released that hit the Billboard Hot 100, “Fly to the Angels” (US#19), “Up All Night” (US#27)
and “Spend My Life” (US#39). During this time, a song was released from the soundtrack to the film Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey. That song, titled “Shout It Out”.
In 1992, the band released their second album, titled The Wild Life. It reached number eight on the US Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and was certified gold.
