Damned good , do they have any more albums ?

From: Skid Date: July 29, 2001 at 21:53
They have two more albums after this self titled one. Their bio is at http://www.escape.ca/~crea

From: Paulo-Fernandes Date: July 30, 2001 at 16:03
Thanks for the info, great site btw

From: SleazyMusic Date: September 11, 2001 at 3:27
Well, good band...but it's just another AC/DC band, you know, like Johnny Crash or Dirty Looks...Not too good, not too bad...

From: Skid Date: September 14, 2001 at 21:11
Sorry...but I dont see any anything the same about AC/DC and Little Caesar. One is a pure hard rock band while the other has a much bluesier and sleazier side.

From: Kim Date: November 2, 2001 at 11:57
Pure class, sleazy and mean. Great album, with almost no weak point. Cajun Panther is awesome, and so is Chain of fools.

From: Pearcy Date: November 2, 2001 at 15:13
Personally I think that they make much better pizza than music. I will have mine with mushrooms and peppers......

From: Meghog Date: November 13, 2001 at 3:19
I have been a big fan of the band for 10 years in Japan. This self-titled album is terrific, so is their 2nd album "Influence". Good songs for riding motorcycle. All I want more is their reunion and new materials.

From: Soft and Wet Date: March 22, 2002 at 3:55
I love this band have for years, if I could be a road'e I would work for them free. BTW, they are playing around L.A. Again, and they sound great!

From: Dave S. Date: March 26, 2002 at 6:26
Little Caesar needs to show these young kids how to rock.Little Caesar should have got the attention Guns and Roses got.

From: Dave S. Date: March 26, 2002 at 6:28
I'm from Seattle and have never gotten to see L.C. Would like to know if they are going to release some new stuff. They are too good not to!

From: Tony Date: April 9, 2002 at 11:04
Too bad this album got lost in the first wave of the grunge shuffle. Great band and the vocals are just amazing!! One of the few cd's of that era I can still pull out today and sounds just as freash and real to me as it did in 1990. GREAT driving with the windows down on the freeway album.

From: dokken6008 Date: April 13, 2002 at 7:29
Very BLUESY rock (and I emphasise that word) and roll. The guitar soloing is very good, the music not brutal, the vocals are done well & the music is not over-complicated. So with 'Little Caesar' you have a solid blues rock album but it really has no similarity or association with any of the eighties' glam bands in music or style. And last but not least, ENOUGH with these Little Caesar's pizza cracks. "Pizza pizza not music music". Haha. Dumbass. Most likely they have never even HEARD the cd.

From: jason (FA - Q) Date: July 10, 2002 at 22:05
This album is really good! Their cover of the Aretha Franklin song "Chain Of Fools" is outstanding! I also think that their remake of "I Wish It Would Rain" is better than Rod Stewart's. Other songs on here that are really good are "In Your Arms", "Drive It Home" and "From The Start." This band is like ZZ Top for the new ages.

From: Meghog Date: November 19, 2002 at 3:10
Very, very, very happy to hear that they're playing in the L.A. area again! It will be impossible that they come to Japan in the near future, I just am looking forward to their new materials.

From: L.J. Date: November 23, 2002 at 15:57
Otro de mis discos favoritos. Si no fuera por la versión de Chain of Fools, un 10. Tiene algo que no tienen el resto de discos de Hard Rock and Roll: melodia.A primera vista parece un album de una banda sleazy rockanrollera, pero tienen un feeling y unas melodias como nunca he escuchado en este tipo de bandas. Probar a escucharlo en el coche cuando se empieza a poner el sol. Sensacional.

From: Blue Tequila Date: April 10, 2003 at 8:46
Great blues rock beer drinkin' music, like Circus of Power only not so angry. I was really surprised at their sound--thought they'd be a lot heavier after seeing the band pic on the back cover. I remember the video for "Chain of Fools" got quite a bit of airplay back when MTfu**ingV still played music videos.

From: Gar Date: May 6, 2003 at 18:38
Good stuff. Ron Young's voice is pretty rough, but man can he belt out a tune. Their follow up album INFLUENCE is even better.

From: SPOTLIGHT Date: May 22, 2003 at 6:14
I saw this band open for Kiss and I must say, they sucked more than a two dollar whore. Thank God they only played for half an hour. If I was of age at the time, I would've gotten seriously drunk because I would've enjoyed throwing up more than their performance.

From: Shawn Mead Date: October 20, 2003 at 23:22
I saw this band back in 1990 they opened for KISS (Hot in the Shade) and Slaughter, and at the end of the evening I bought a Little Caesar T-shirt and CD.... They were Great Live... Faster Pussycat was suppose to be the opening act, but had to cancel....and at short notice Little Caesar filled in "AWESOME SHOW" If anyone knows what this band is up to now let me know... I also am looking up Electric Angels and Company of Wolves, along with Kings of the Sun... e-mail me at umonster54@yahoo.com

From: love metal Date: November 8, 2003 at 22:26
just got it, like it. wish it would rain is a great song as is drive it home but i could live without chain of fools. doro still rules

From: vandervelde Date: December 31, 2003 at 14:28
Chain Of Fools was a cover of Aretha Franklin....this likely confused people back then and this brilliant album have selling numbers rather bad....in Meantime singer sounds like John Mellencamp...this is great bluesy hardrock( reminds me little Lynyrd Skynyrd)...this isn't arena rock...IMHO this music must be played in smaller arenas.....the best tracks Get Down'N'Dirty, Hard Times, In your Arms(great ballad), Midtown, I Wish It Could Rain

From: RockinHawk Date: March 17, 2004 at 7:07
Great band. Incredible. They really rock...Ron Young has a fantastic voice (one of the most powerful I've ever heard. I love all the album, but Little Queenie, Down N' Dirty & From The Start are songs incredible. C'mon boys, come back together!!! Show to the world how to rock!!!

From: Paul G. Date: May 15, 2004 at 22:35
Hey, Ron if you read this message board email me. It's me Paul from your days in NYC's Kingpins. How the hell yoyu man?

From: Uncle Salty Date: May 21, 2004 at 10:10
Great album. My brother bought this one in 1991 and I think it sounds as good now as in 1991. It's bikers hard rock, the songs rock, my favourites are Down N' Dirty and Little queenie, though. Ron Young has a great voice. Ron Young write something in this board or ask the site Metal Sludge to do a "20 questions" interview, I'm sure they would agree to do it. We wanna know what you're up to man.

From: Date: May 21, 2004 at 23:07
bought this album in 1988 or1989 as far as i remmember right here in nova scotia.very ggood album not a boring song here.they really can rock out the tunes. excellent peice of work

From: xlhjoe Date: November 24, 2004 at 22:45
bought this album a long time ago.it was great then and still rocks today.not many cd,s you can pull out from the 80,s and still have it together,this one does.does any one know if they have ever gotten back together?.

From: Chad Date: November 26, 2004 at 22:23
A bunch of bikers with a big heart and a soft side is how I would describe these guys. Very good blues rock. The lead singer carries the songs for sure. He can sing with the best of them. Highlights include: Chain of Fools, I Wish it Would Rain and Hard Times. While I would not call this a full blown party album, I would throw it in when you have a few friends over throwing a game a cards with some brews. Nice album. Recommended.

From: Date: November 28, 2004 at 1:36
Awesome album, as was the follow-up. For those wondering what Ron has been up to, you can read an interview at http://www.sleazeroxx.com

From: Erik Date: January 10, 2005 at 4:59
Cool album. Best songs; Chain of fools, Down and dirty, Hard Times, In your arms and I wish it could rain. Ron had a small role in Terminator 1. Where he got his ass kicked when Arnie entered the bar ( opening scene ).

From: Geoff Date: January 16, 2005 at 2:01
Wow, L is not a good letter for my taste in music. This one is a cool hard rock album, but IMO very plain. Nothing wrong with it, just not very inspired IMO. 'In your arms' is a nice commercial track, and 'I wish that it would rain' is a decent ballad. Average album, IMO.

From: pt88 Date: January 28, 2005 at 22:26
Saw them open for Kiss. Honestly, very uninspired and kinda boring. They joined a minor trend at the time when bands like Junkyard came around and did their thing. I bought the tape but hardly listened to it. Nothing exciting to me. It was a zzz fest for me. I wanted to like it and I wanted to support bands Kiss supported but not in this case ....anything but original. Sorry guys ! Maybe after years I would like it who knows ..?

From: Mr.Gein Date: January 8, 2006 at 7:31
Great band, I used to listen to it on the radio back in 90, and finally bought a copy for 10,50€ on eBay. Great to here these tunes again !!

From: RocknRoll Junkie Date: November 8, 2006 at 17:30
Hey, was lookin for this album and somehow got here...cool site.Ummm, Ron was actually in Terminator 2,not 1...the tattoo'd guy that get tossed out the bar window by Arnie, he he,anyway, a great album,had it when it was first released and was totally rocked, I hav'nt heard it in yrs but Im lookin for it,may be as simple as going to the music store...I dont know....I didnt really care for the 2nd album but 16 yrs later that debut is still on my mind...cheers

From: rockhardrock Date: March 26, 2007 at 16:51
great album of that overlooked band.The followup was good too,but that one is much much better.Cover"chain of fools"sounds great in hard rock waters.There is great ballad"in your arms"which used to be my fav.of that band."drive it home"is very good. They were defenitely kickin ass when they played live-especially for bikers who loved them.Great and too bad they werent famous.They had talent.

From: z4roxx Date: June 9, 2007 at 11:27
Is this their best album?I don't know,it's the only cd I do hva from them,it contains some cool song and some filler...MMMnnnnn the samey bands who alterne good song at bad and inconsistent tracks....Sincerely don't know if hold or sell this one.

From: Rycheage Date: September 16, 2007 at 17:38
If this genre hadn't been run over 1000 times, then this might have been a stand out album. Since it has been played the 1000 times, this is just a cheap retread. Nothing here that AC/DC and all their clones did years before. It is not a horror show, though. There are some enjoyable songs, just don't expect anything new.

From: Artie Date: September 24, 2007 at 1:23
Even though it's over 2˝ years old by now, just to correct Erik above, it was Terminator 2, not 1.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: October 22, 2008 at 2:28
I was on the hunt for this one for quite awhile before finally getting ahold of it. I've always loved that faintly southern-tinged, but still hard, rock. And this is a good enough CD, although it seems more influenced by classic soul than by somebody like Skynyrd or Hatchet (and that's not just because of the cover of "Chain Of Fools"). However, the Four Horsemen's Nobody Said It Was Easy has it ALL OVER this disc. "Down n' Dirty," "Hard Times," "R&R State Of Mind," "Cajun Panther" adn "Wrong Side Of Te Tracks" are my favorites.

From: rockhardrock Date: April 13, 2009 at 18:07
just like the follow up this one rocks.great hooks, choruses, rhythm. ron's voice is very bluesy and soulful-and i love that kinda voice. they were different from the band's of that era, who became huge, why they didn't-i don't know, they had a talent but they weren't pretty. my favs: Chain of Fools (awsome cover), In Your Arms, Drive It Home and Wrong Side of the Tracks

From: rocksoul Date: September 28, 2010 at 15:24
when you hear this one you can feel smell of sigarettes and hot in the club...."wrong side of the track" is my fav, but all tracks kick ass...yep, also ballad and cover. Great band!

From: the rocker Date: December 23, 2011 at 14:07
Very good cd. A more commercial sounding bar band.Hard Times, Chain Of Fools(cover), In Your Arms, I Wish It Would Rain, From The Start, and Ride On are my picks.

From: 123charpenay Date: July 22, 2012 at 8:02
extraordinary first record.their best.i know it by heart.fantastic hard rock n roll with southern influence.no fillers only killers .a must have a masterpiece with a super singer and a brilliant production.unfortunatelly the japan import have no bonus track.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 29, 2012 at 17:33
In agreement with all the good and positive comments above ...this album rocks from start to finish,all the tracks for me have the "great" label stuck on it so if i have to select some i'd go for "Drive It Home","Midtown","Cajun Panther","Wrong Side Of the Tracks" & "Little Queenie" but just 2 mention some because as i said some line above the whole album rocks...recommended!!!...some slightly The Black Crowes feel here and there IMO...90/100

From: ghettonation73 Date: December 21, 2017 at 3:12
Great CD, My favorite track on this album is "Rock And Roll State Of Mind."
