Burning Starr  


Burning Starr is a solo band of guitarist Jack Starr, one-time guitarist of Virgin Steele and several other bands (in some cases, such as Devil Childe, playing under a pseudonym), as well as recording several solo albums under his name alone (not featured here). Reviewed here is 1986's No Turning Back, a fairly straightforward hard rock/metal offering typical of the times, with a style that is a bit dated today but wasn't bad for the time. For whatever reasons Burning Starr was usually relegated to second division status, though they did command a fair following during their short run in the eighties. The project has been dormant since 1989 (Starr has done other things in the interim, among them Guardians Of The Flame), but the name was revived in 2009 and a new album has been released, Defiance.
