Keel  


Proudly defending "The Right To Rock" was Keel, one of many succesful arena-rock bands of the eighties. The man himself, Ron Keel, first made his mark on the metal scene via an unlikely alliance with then-budding guitar hero Yngwie Malmsteen, the two paired together in the Shrapnel Records-approved Steeler back in 1983. The two quickly went their separate ways, and Keel the band was born, with a string of successful from 1984 to 1989. Predictably the band fell on hard times in the 90's (as did many a hard rock band, with the changing musical climate at the time), and so they quietly disappeared. Many years later, Keel famously made an abrupt musical career change, calling himself Ronnie Lee Keel and pursuing a country music career, the success of which is debateable at best. Finally, the itch to rock came back, and as of 2009 a largely core lineup is back, with a new album due later in the year.
