Winger Biography


A former member of Alice Cooper's band, bassist Kip Winger formed his own group in 1986; in addition to vocalist/bassist Winger, the group featured lead guitarist Reb Beach, guitarist/keyboardist Paul Taylor, and drummer Rod Morgenstein, formerly of the Dixie Dregs. Taking its name from its leader, Winger specialized in the stylish hard rock that sent Bon Jovi and Poison to the top of the charts. The band's eponymous debut sold over a million copies on the strength of the rocker "Seventeen" and the ballad "Headed for a Heartbreak." Winger's second album, 1990's In the Heart of the Young, was equally successful, selling over a million copies and featuring the hit power-ballad "Miles Away." However, the band didn't outlast the grunge trend and the group faded away after the release of its 1993 album Pull. Kip Winger launched a solo career at the tail end of the '90s. In early 2006, the "Pull" 1993 line-up reunited, along with a fifth member on keyboards. A fourth studio album with eleven new tracks, title IV, was released in 2006 on Frontiers Records.
