Stardom beckoned for Heavy Pettin' back in the early 80's with arena tours supporting Kiss, Ozzy and Mötley Crüe and along with the help of MTV, the band scored a couple of Stateside hits.
However, after two hit albums with 'Lettin' Loose' in 1983 and two years later with 'Rock Ain't Dead', they literally ended with a 'Big Bang' after a misguided attempt at the Eurovision Song Contest in '87 resulting in the band breaking up with their third album released after their demise two years later.
News of their reunion came as a complete surprise when earlier last summer Steve 'Hamie' Hayman flew over from Texas where he now resides to exclusively announce to Mark Taylor of MetalTalk & TotalRockRadio that the band were reforming for a gig at WinterStorm and they did a triumphant return - with the prospect of further gigs across Europe/UK for 2018.
