Night Ranger's Jack Blades on 35 years of rocking in America, Damn Yankees and more!

Sister Christian...

Don't Tell Me You Love Me...

Goodbye....

Mention those songs to any 80's rock fan and chances are they'll come back at you with "Night Ranger!" Tha band, fronted by long time members Jack Blades on bass guitar and vocals, Kelly Keagy on drums and vocals and lead guitarist Brad Gillis, have been rockin' in America for over three decades. Currently touring in support of their 35th anniversary and 2017's "Don't Let up" album, Night Ranger recently played to a sold out crowd at the Hard Rock Rocksino at Northfield Park.

We caught up with Night Ranger front man and bassist Jack Blades shortly after the concert. In the interview Jack talks about the band's beginnings and the role Cleveland played in launching their career; how Northeast Ohio native Michael Cartellone ended up with him, Tommy Shaw and Ted Nugent in Damn Yankees; the songs that mean the most to him; what's next for him and Night Ranger; and what he will treasure most about his career.

You can watch an abbreviated version of the interview above, or listen to the "Hello Cleveland!" podcast below.
