Hardline performing the first single they ever released: “Takin’ Me Down”! This song rocks every bit as hard as it did on the debut album Double Eclipse!
NOTE: For those who wish to avoid hearing profanity, immediately skip to the thirteen-second mark in this video.
Five points to anyone who notices that big bro Johnny is wearing a Hardline - Danger Zone shirt. There haven’t been any new Hardline shirts since the Double Eclipse tour of 1992! Might these Danger Zone shirts become available? Let’s hope so!
Hardline performing on the Sweden Stage on June 7, 2013, the band’s first live performance since the Gods Festival in Bradford England on June 2, 2002! Here, Hardline performs their most popular song, “Hot Cherie,” originally by the band Streetheart. In this performance, “Hot Cherie” is every bit as “hot” as when Hardline first performed the song in the Palace of Auburn Hills Michigan, on April 3, 1992!
Here’s the current line-up taking a break from rehearsing for the Sweden Rock Festival to take a quick picture!
Left to Right: Alessandro Del Vecchio (keyboards, backing vocals; 2011-present), Johnny Gioeli (lead vocals; 1991-1993, 1999-present), Anna Portalupi (bass guitar; 2011-present), Mike Terrana (drums; 2012-present), and Josh Ramos (guitars; 2002-2011, 2012-present)
A short segment of the long sought-after Brunette film, “Smash, Crash, and Burn.” The first few minutes show the then-struggling band sitting at the dinner table, discussing where they should try to play. Afterward, the music video for the killer song “Lady Love” plays.
NOTE: Beware of strong language in the scene that takes place at the table.
Thanks to an as-of-yet anonymous tipster for sending in the link for the re-upload! Much appreciated, whoever you are!
Unfortunately, Johnny has decided to call it quits with Hardline. Also a member of Axel Rudi Pell and Crush 40, as well as a co-CEO of a company and a father of two, Johnny is a very busy man, and no longer has the time to continue Hardline. Hardline - Danger Zone will remain Hardline’s last album, and the members of the band have gone their separate ways. Johnny will continue to make music with Axel and Jun, but Hardline will be forever missed.
Hardline: 1991-1993, 2000-2013.
By the way, isn’t today April 1st? Feel free to call me a number of unflattering names; I deserve it after that.
