Ugly Kid Joe’s Whitfield Crane served as the poster child bridging Glam and Funk Metal with Grunge, walking tall in the ‘90s playground of Heavy Rock music with mega-hits from their America’s Least Wanted album. Now 20 years later, Crane and company dish out massive helpings of humble pie with Uglier Than They Used Ta Be. This album deals with the collateral damage suffered and opportunities squandered while the band meandered through prior successes. If you’re feeling suicidal, this album’s for you … for everyone else, you’d be better off to just keep the memories of this band’s heyday intact.

    Dan is a former partner at Metal Express Radio, and also served as a reviewer, photographer and interviewer on occasions. Based out of Indianapolis, USA he was first turned on to Hard Rock music in the mid-1970s when he purchased Deep Purple's Machine Head as his first album. He was immediately enthralled with the powerful guitar sound and pronounced drumbeat, and had to get more! His collection quickly expanded to include as many of Heavy Rock bands of the time that he could get his hands on, such as Ted Nugent, Judas Priest, and Black Sabbath, to name just a few.
