Anyone else think it's lame for Mike Tramp to tour under the White Lion name without Vito Bratta. I mean Vito was such a huge part of their sound. Without him there is no White Lion. Just my 2 cents.

Obvious cash-in thing.

If I recall correctly, last year VH1 tried to get them (all of White Lion) together intheir reunion show, and Vito refused.

IMO, if White Lion consists of all the rest of the original members, and Vito wants no part of it... then more power to them!!

No. White Lion now consists of 1 original member. Mike Tramp.

Well, if that is the case, and it is just Mike Tramp... then he should just tour under his name, since he did release a solo album or two.

Its the usual glam metal band where only one original member reforms the group and never makes an impact.

Well it's officially being billed as "[b]Mike Tramp's White Lion[/b]", but every club owner from the big towns to podunk will probably just advertise "White Lion" . They are notorius for that as you all know.
Bottom line on any of this is always the same. If you bill just "Mike Tramp" you just won't get as many people out to the gigs because the casual fans that bought the records in the day probably don't even know half the members' names (that goes for most bands). Most cats these days have the majority of tour costs coming out their own pocket.

Enuff Z'Nuff is slated to open most of the US dates then off to the UK.

Now whether or not Donnie will be with Enuff Z'Nuff is always anyone's guess these days Shocked[/b]
