A short-lived Los Angeles band from the 80's, Hawk is notable for a few names having passed through, in particular drummers Matt Sorum (later of Guns'n'Roses) and Scott Travis, now in Judas Priest. The main personality here was guitarist Doug Marks, who has since made a name for himself as the guitar instructor featured on the "Metal Method" instructional videos. Formed in 1984, the group was essentially a solo project featuring Marks and several session musicians by the time their only album was released in 1986. Hawk featured a strong vocal performance from David Fefolt (somewhat in the Dio mold) and flashy guitarwork from Marks, though the songs are bit on the pedestrian side, very much rooted in 80's hard rock.
