Power Ballad of the Day September 20th

Heute: "When The Crowds Are Gone" by Savatage:

Savatage was an up-and-coming band with more than a modicum of label support. Then, guitar prodigy Chriss Oliva passed away, and the wind completely vanished fromt he sails. His brother Jon Oliva still tries to pass off a live act as "Savatage", but that's much akin to the currrent-day version of Thin Lizzy.

Beautiful song though.

...too bad - the "Gutter Ballet" album is phenomenal. Check it out if you liked this tune
