Jack Blades, frontman for Night Ranger and Damn Yankees, detailed the '90s cultural shift that affected label Warner Bros.' attitude toward his music. Damn Yankees — the supergroup featuring Blades, Ted Nugent and Styx's Tommy Shaw — opened the decade with two popular albums, 1990's Damn Yankees and 1992's Don't Tread. And after that point, Blades and Shaw found themselves with a lot of outside work, writing for artists like Alice Cooper, Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne and Cher.
