    Great Hard Rock from short lived USA band.

    Hero hailed from Los Angeles and came together after several years of gigging under various lineups in the early 70's. Formed by brothers Curt (keyboards) and Mark (bass) Houle, it was 1975 before the band's permanent lineup would take shape. That came with the addition of sixteen year old guitar whiz, Neil Citron and drummer Jeff Jones. When local heroes Hollywood Stars replaced their lead singer, Scott Phares, Hero became his new home. The band signed with Con Merten agency and within a year, producer Michael Lloyd had helped the band to sign with Mercury Records. Their self-titled debut was issued in 1977 and despite a few well written singles, the album stalled and Hero were quickly dropped from their contract.

    Merten and Lloyd were unwavering believers in the band and vowed to find the band a new home. The following year, 20th Century Records added Hero to their roster and "Boys Will Be Boys" was released. Again, the band and label were unable to create a buzz and Hero found themselves without a label in 1979. Luckily, Lloyd was able to produce a sole single for the band in 1980, released on Australian label, Interplanetary Records. The single barely dented the charts and Hero's relationship with Merten and Lloyd came to an end. The band returned to the LA club circuit and actively performed there in various lineup until 1983. Citron went on to become a solo artist and session player. Jones and the Houle brothers began a production company and remain active in studio engineering and session work. Phares retired from the business altogether and relocated to Texas.
