Axe Release Axeology

Earlier this week Deadline Music released Axeology 1979-2001, a 2-CD collection memorializes more than 20 years of the classic hard rock band, Axe.

Formed in Florida in 1979, the original Axe lineup included keyboardist Edgar Riley, guitarists Bobby Barth and Michael Osborne, bassist Mike Turpin, and drummer Teddy Mueller.

The band's self-titled debut on MCA Records quickly earned attention in the rock community, but it wasn't until the third album Offering (on Atco) in 1982 that Axe hit the big time with the anthemic "Rock 'n' Roll Party In The Streets." New bassist Wayne Haner was added to the band for the album and subsequent tours with Motley Crue, The Scorpions, Judas Priest, Ozzy Osbourne and Iron Maiden. Sadly, while supporting a fourth album on tour with KISS, Michael Osborne was killed in a car crash which seriously injured Bobby Barth, and the band soon dissolved.

Reformed Axe over the years recorded and toured, and included musicians such as Zappa vocalist Bob Harris, Edgar Riley Jr. on keyboards, Teddy Mueller on drums and bassist Blake Eberhard.

Axelogy contains 36 songs that chronicle the progression of the band from local rockers from the southeast to a progressive power band that toured the world, from the biggest hit to select cuts from the first two studio albums. The liner notes were written by Barth, and the packaging includes original LP sleeve artwork, rare photos and more.
