Saints in Hell


Saints in Hell

Saints in Hell was a cover band formed in the early eighties that consisted of a young Tom Keifer on guitar, Eric Brittingham on bass, Billy Gram on vocals, guitarist Kurt Ritchie, and drummer Sal La Torre. The band got its name from the Judas Priest song, "Saints in Hell" on their 1978 Stained Class album. Keifer was in the band for about six months. In magazines interviews, Tom has been quoted as saying “That band was just out of it’s mind. It was a sick band.” The band used makeup similar to that of Mötley Crüe and Alice Cooper. Tom also stated that none of the members got along. He said “We’d try to rehearse and after five minutes people would start swinging at each other.” Saints in Hell did have one positive side-effect: Keifer met bassist Eric Brittingham, on Halloween night, 1980, in a bar bathroom. Keifer asked Brittingham if he played the bass. Eric joined Saints in Hell a few days later. The two would later form the hard rock band Cinderella.

Saints in Hell is also the name of a popular Indian rock band.
