It Came From the '80s: Final Stage Reunion




Final Stage will play a 20-year reunion show on Saturday at Maple Grove (14832 Pease Rd., Maple Heights). The cover crew's lineup is Brian Exton (ex-Dia Pason) guitar, Wal Ozello (ex-Armada) on vocals, Freddie Glover on drums and fill-in bassist Greg Van Krol (ex-Victory Flag, Mutant Soldier).

The guys were still in high school when they formed the band. It was the first band they all played in.

Expect an '80s hair-rock extravaganza: Poison, Crue, Tesla, Whitesnake, Dokken, Journey, Kiss, Ozzy, Cinderella, GNR, Bon Jovi, Twisted Sister, etc. But with way less hair.
