Here's another one not mentioned. Liaison. They had some killer albums. I thought the Cool Water album had a 38 Special vibe to it. They were great live. Their left handed drummer was so good. Great footwork and groove.
I played in a cover band, and He Smiled was one of our set list staples. The drum break in the middle was fun. It was trip to get the singers to recognize that the music stops on the off beat, and to count so that they would come in correctly.

How about a little love for JAG. Love the dudes voice. Some of the Whiteheart guys were involved with the songwriting and such. I still love the various 80's pop and rock influences in the songs.

Also according to Discogs, John Slick is a player on the first Twenty Twenty album. A detail I definitely forgot, as I have not had a physical copy for quite a while.

I'll also add Allies and David and the Giants to the mix.

Neither really hard rockers, but fantastic music.
