Legendary Detroit rock band The Rockets release 4-song EP

therockets2014When original guitarist Jim McCarty decided in 2011 to quit the legendary Detroit rock band The Rockets, the brief reunion seemed over.  McCarty and drummer, songwriter and co-founder Johnny “Bee” Badanjek were members of  Mitch Ryder’s Detroit Wheels, and later formed The Rockets, a Midwest, heartland rock and roll band that could never quite hit the heights of a guy like Bob Seger. Cleveland has the Michael Stanley Band. Detroit had The Rockets

A few years ago, the two enlisted frontman Jim Edwards, and made a comeback.  Live shows, but no albums.  Until now.  The great Gary Graff, a longtime Detroit area music writer does a terrific job telling the story of the new record.  Worth a read. The first studio release in 30 years is a four song E.P. called Greetings From Detroit

They played a show on Saturday, Dec. 28, at the Fillmore Detroit, debuting the material.
