Show Info

Boogie rockers Jackyl were instantly lumped into the hair metal category upon their debut in 1992, but their sound was only vaguely reminiscent of the genre. Still, this label stuck with them after the sound became un-hip and their loud rock & roll was largely ignored by the mainstream. But due to the well-rounded Southern rock they were releasing throughout the '90s, they maintained a dedicated following that few other bands from the era could claim. The band started in 1990, forming in Georgia out of vocalist Jesse James Dupree, guitarist Jeff Worley, drummer Chris Worley, bassist Tom Bettini, and guitarist Jimmy Stiff. The fivesome shared an enthusiasm for AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and other like-minded artists, and were soon crafting their own blend of hard rock and Southern boogie around their native state. Record executives got hip to their live show, which included chain saws, among other things, and soon the band signed to Geffen. A self-titled debut enjoyed several hit rock singles, including "When Will It Rain," "I Stand Alone," and "Down on Me." But the most attention was drawn by "The Lumberjack," an ode to burly chainsaw wielders that witnessed a power tool solo by Dupree. His chainsaw abilities became their recognized gimmick, and equally gimmick-crazy guitarist Ted Nugent took the band on the road for a tour that included his own archery display as well.
