American born guitarist/song writer, Hal Marabel formed this Swedish band back in 1986 together with former band member Doc Pat Shannon. The idea was to create music that mixed hard rock with melodic tendencies from both of their past musical backgrounds.
Influences were bands like Journey, Toto, Van Halen and Boston but also other music genres such as Blues and Classical. The next musician to become part of the band was Patrik Södergren (then called Stevie Rose) followed by Bax Fehling and the original drummer Jan Andersson. Jan was replaced by Jaime Salazar shortly after the release of the debut mini-album "Young & Innocent" in 1987. The album was released on CBS (now SONY). In 1989, the band released the eclaimed debut album "After Hours" which made waves in the AOR community. The album was released on Virgin. The band has not played "live" extensively but did gig a lot during 1987-1990. In 1989, the band toured the former Soviet Union extensively. The tour was a major success in all possible ways and led to many new experiences for the band members.To date, BAD HABIT have released 5 CDs, 4 singles (with videos) and a mini-album. The last CD released (before the new CD) was the "Adult Orientation" in 1998.
This group does not have any discussions yet.
