Winger Biography

A former member of Alice Cooper's band, ba**ist Kip Winger formed his own group in 1986; in addition to vocalist/ba**ist Winger, the group featured guitarist Reb Beach, ba**ist Paul Taylor, and drummer Rod Morgenstein, formerly of the Dixie Dregs. Taking its name from its leader, Winger specialized in the stylish pop-metal that sent Bon Jovi and Poison to the top of the charts. The band's eponymous debut sold over a million copies on the strength of the rocker "Seventeen" and the ballad "Headed for a Heartbreak." Winger's second album, 1990's In the Heart of the Young, was equally successful, selling over a million copies and featuring the hit power-ballad "Miles Away." However, the band didn't outlast the post-alternative pop-metal backlash and the group faded away after the release of its 1993 album Pull. Kip Winger launched a solo career at the tail end of the '90s. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide
