Happy Birthday to Head East, Petra and Union of Sinners and Saints vocalist John W. Schlitt!
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.

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. : )
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 ...

A recommendation for all people interested in a great new cd that has come out! John Schlitt's The Greater Cause. Former lead singer of Chicago's Head East and Christian Rocker" PETRA..John's new solo release The Greater Cause is perfect for the times we find ourselves into today! A faith lifter and a call to America to wake up and come back to the foundations we were founded on..Faith in the Lord and Freedom!

John Schlitt's vocal range really shines on this song. You have to wonder if lyrics like these weren't a predictor of his future in Christian Rock music.
