Back in the ’70s, Starz brought the heavy-metal thunder. The N.Y.C. band defined hair-rock before there was such a thing. Songs like “(She’s Just A) Fallen Angel” and “Cherry Baby” were FM faves when the airwaves still had some freedom. And the band regularly graced such decibel-loving magazines as Circus and Creem. Four of the five original Starz (its bass player passed away several years ago) are still making music, and on the new, live Extended Versions CD, they appear to believe they still matter after 25 years of irrelevance. The guys still pile on the riffs and volume -- essentially surveying the musical blueprint for every pop-metal band to come of age on MTV, with special shout-outs reserved for Mötley Crüe and Bon Jovi.
