Badlands was a blues rock band founded by former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Jake E. Lee, former Black Sabbath members Ray Gillen (vocals), Eric Singer (drums), as well as former Surgical Steel bass player Greg Chaisson. After the first Badlands album, Eric Singer was replaced by Jeff Martin. The group lasted from 1988 to 1993 and released three albums. Badlands (1989) and Voodoo Highway (1991) were released before Gillen left and was replaced by singer John West from New York. Gillen’s death in 1993 effectively ended any hopes of re-uniting the project. The album Dusk (a demo recorded in 1992-93) was released in 1998 with the then deceased Gillen on vocals.
