Classic AOR band 707 announce '30 Years of Classic Rock' with new MySpace page set up
707 the band started by Kevin Russell have just posted an updated MySpace page with a little history behind the band and it's more than just 'that' song, 'I Could Be Good For You,' as good as it is!
My only hope, is probably the same as many other great fans of this once great band, that they'll give us something more than this in 2010!
Read on:

707 bio / 30 years of Classic Rock!! The original members included Kevin Russell (guitars, vocals), Phil Bryant (bass & vocals), Jim McClarty (drums) and Duke McFadden (piano & vocals.) Initially signed to Casablanca Records, they achieved significant rock radio airplay with "I Could Be Good for You," which peaked at 11 on the Billboard Hot 100. The single was featured on the first album, simply entitled 707.

McFadden left the band before 707's The Second Album. "Strings Around My Heart" was the band's second single hitting the charts, peaking at 20 . Recording began for a third album, 'The Bridge,' featuring new member Tod Howarth (keyboards, guitar & vocals). While being musically inventive and clearly demonstrating Howarth's influence, the recordings languished unreleased for 18 years due to contract disputes. During this period 707 toured the states extensively for a couple of years. Most notably with REO Speedwagon on their highly successful “Hi-In Fidelity Tour.” The REO/707 show was the hottest ticket that year! 707 inked a new deal with Boardwalk Records and decided it was time to search for a lead vocalist/front man.

Kevin Chalfant joined the new 707 lineup. The result was the band's most successful record to date 'Megaforce.' The title track originally recorded as the theme to the motion picture Megaforce, repeated the success of their first hit reaching 12 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock charts and rising to 25 on the Hot 100. The band played to stadium crowds and enjoyed the opening act position for several successful acts at their commercial peak, including Ted Nugent, Loverboy, The Scorpions, Rainbow , John Mellencamp, 38. Special. Judas Priest and more... and it continues..................
