About

The Detroit band ILLEGAL was formed originally as a Hard Rock Trio in 1988 by guitarist Jeff Alex, bassist/singer Rick Baig, and drummer Lou Ryan. As the late 90’s approached times changed and the band changed to a 4 piece with a lead singer, along the way opening for such acts as Rainbow, Quiet Riot, Nazareth, Cheap Trick, Little Richard, Jackyl, and many more.

In 1998, the member’s of ILLEGAL dressed up as KISS for a Halloween costume party, borrowing costumes from a functioning KISS Tribute Band. After being approached by fans wishing to hire this "ILLEGAL" KISS Tribute Band, War Machine was born. Taking their name from a popular KISS song, War Machine has performed steadily for the last 13 years across the USA and Canada
