OK, plagued by a head song this AM. "Never Been Any Reason" by Head East. I think John Schlitt and the boys got together and said "Let's write the hookiest song in human history". Guitar riffs. Synth runs. It screams of the early 70s.

Vintage Head East Photos - Candy Kingsbury Benefit Concert On July 31, 1974, Head East performed at a benefit concert in Genoa, IL. The concert was held to raise funds for 16 year old Candy Kingsbury to help pay medical bills incurred in her fight against cancer. The photos below show the recently formed classic line-up of Roger Boyd, John Schlitt, Dan Birney, Mike Somerville, and Steve Huston that recorded "Flat as a Pancake" shortly thereafter at Golden Voice Studios in Pekin, Illinois. The classic line-up would go on to record and release four more studio albums and one double live album during the next five years.

Does anyone remember the band Head East? They played lots up in Hoosierville, saw them up at the Nail, a big bar setting in Sturgis, MI one time. The lead singer, John Schlitt was fired from the band for drug dependency and then he found God, hence, Petra was born. Christian Rock band, "God Gave Rock & Roll." et cetera. Saw them up in South Bend, early 80's. This band Really had a large influence on Christian Rock. I remember at the time there was much discrepencies (sic) at that time with some peoples parents. "That is not Christian music!" I loved it! Petra went strong for 33 years, they retired in 2005. : )
Over their illustrious 40 year career, Petra has released 24 albums and sold over 7 million albums, garnering 4 GRAMMY® Awards, 10 Dove Awards and numerous radio hits. As the pioneer of Christian Rock, Petra paved the way for countless artists, helping to create a new genre of rock music along the way. Now, after the completion of a successful two-year reunion of the band s mid-80s line-up (as Classic Petra), Petra founding member Bob Hartman and long-time vocalist John Schlitt have re-united on tour to celebrate Petra s 40th Anniversary. The album, '40th Anniversary', is a 2 CD set featuring 27 of Petra's biggest and most-loved songs. Compiled by founding member Bob Hartman, '40th Anniversary' documents Petra's long career with hits like, 'This Means War,' 'Beyond Belief,' 'Creed,' plus a brand new song 'Holy Is Your Name.' The packaging will include liner notes written by Bob Hartman.
In less than an hour Silent Witness gets under way. If you cant catch us on the air, catch us on-line on our new radio stream. Playing all your Summer concert favorites like Skillet, Toby Mac, Anberlin, Newsboys, Ashes Remain and P.O.D. (All coming to the CIncinncati area soon).

Just Reach Out-- Petra Words and music by John Schlitt and Rick Gootee Based on Psalm 34:16-18, Romans 10:9-13 Sometimes the night seems to go on for days When it's hard to see the light through the darkness and haze While the world around you makes you feel out of place And the burdens that you carry are just too hard to face (Chorus) Just reach out and He'll reach in Take your broken heart and make it whole again It don't matter who you are or where you've been Just reach out, and He'll reach in Standing in a crowd, but still all alone Crying out for answers that nobody knows Everybody's busy looking out for themselves Is there anyone who really cares about anyone else? You say you've walked ten thousand steps away But don't you know that it's only one step back? Because the One who hears you when you pray Is the One who's there beside you And He'll never walk away

Here are some of the highlights from 2012 In May I hosted the 40th anniversary party for Petra! That just happened to be my 50th birthday. John Schlitt had his new CD release party at PC3. I was also able to get GHF, John DeGroff, Greg Hough & Bill Glover from the original Petra line up. Plus my good friend Sam Scales preformed at the show. I had about 100 fellow Petheads in for the convention. That same week, Sam asked me to be her manager/booking agent. It’s been a lot of fun working with Sam and her husband, Warren. I had to go to Las Vegas in June for a trade show for work. That was a great time. I was able to see my sister and her family. They took me out to see the Blue Man Group.

Rockstars Of The 80's Review Category: Music: Remember the days of spandex, big hair, leg warmers, Miami Vice suits, and MTV playing music videos? The 80’s were an amazing time for all styles of music. Dance, rock, pop, glam, you name it, it was all over the airwaves. I remember recording songs off the radio on cassette and I had everything from Devo to Huey Lewis to Loverboy to AC/DC. It was all about the songs and good times. S&S Entertainment brought 3 acts who reached their pinnacle of success in the 80’s, but they sure didn’t reach their songwriting plateau then! These 3 acts are still going strong and one of them is reintroducing himself as a solo artist. Opening the show was a gentleman who has become a mentor and friend over the last several months. He has shared the stage with Cheap Trick, Black Sabbath, and many more. For those of you who know I grew up a preacher’s kid and with a lot of Christian Rock around, he played in Johnny with former Head East singer John Schlitt, who later becam ...
