Max Havoc would normally be relegated to the pile of forgettable
80's bands that sprung out of nowhere during that decade,
releasing an album or
two before disappearing without a trace.
However, they are notable for the simple reason that their original
drummer was none other than
legend Bill Ward.
Indeed, the band was founded by vocalist Pat McKeon and Ward,
who had recently departed Sabbath around 1981.
The early lineup didn't pan out, Ward returned to Sabbath, and
McKeon drafted a new lineup that eventually recorded their only
album in 1983, by which time Ward returned to act as executive
Also of note were guest appearances by Carlos Cavaso
drummer Tony Richards.
As far as the music goes, it was a pretty basic hard rock
affair, bordering on pre-glam a la early Motley Crue, not
surprising for a young band from Los Angeles at the time.
