Night Ranger

The group's origin can be traced to Rubicon, a pop/funk group led by Jerry Martini, who gained fame as a member of Sly and the Family Stone. After Rubicon's demise in 1979, bassist Jack Blades formed a hard rock trio with two other Rubicon members, drummer Kelly Keagy and guitarist Brad Gillis. Performing under the name Stereo, the threesome added keyboardist Alan Fitzgerald, a former member of Montrose, in 1980. Fitzgerald soon recommended enlisting a second virtuoso guitarist, so Jeff Watson, who led his own band in Northern California, was added to the group. The seeds were sown for a new melodic hard rock band, initially called simply Ranger.

Night Ranger is an American hard rock band from San Francisco, California that gained significant popularity during the 1980s.
The quintet is perhaps best known for the power ballad "Sister Christian", which peaked at #5 in early 1984.
After their success waned in the late 1980s, the band split up in 1989 and its members pursued other musical endeavours including both group and solo efforts.
The band has continued to tour into 2008 and remains very popular in Asian countries including Japan.
