KEEL - The Right To Rock 12" Vinyl LP Album

This album "KEEL - The Right to Rock" is the second studio album by heavy metal band Keel. It was the first to be produced by Kiss's Gene Simmons under their new label Gold Mountain Records (which was distributed by A&M Records at the time). When the band started recording the album, drummer Bobby Marks left. He was replaced by different drummers: Fred Coury (who went on to join Cinderella), Barry Brandt (of Angel) and Steve Riley (who subsequently left to join the band W.A.S.P.). Dwain Miller eventually became the band's permanent drummer before the album was released.
