Rhett Forresters solo debut after leaving as frontman of Riot...
This is a rarity and an oddity, I won't lie. Its simply an obscure release that was never properly promoted in 1984, and was re-released in 2001. ( It was recoded in France, thats a good reason for its lack of promotion.)
If you were ever a fan of TKO, Icon, Kix, Dirty Looks, this is for you. An exceptional release of 80's metal. Full of anthem lyrics, excellent guitar, and some of the first use of drum machines that I have ever heard. Although the drum machine use is hard to detect and shouldn't deter you from a purchase. This downright dirty, fun, metal.
Guitars are by Paul Kanyen, who handles rythum and lead easily, flawlessly blending the solo into the rythum parts. Bass is by Gary Bordonoro. Drums are by Carl Canedy. But the standout part of this release is Rhett Forrester on vocals, slightly harsh, flirtatious, deep, and hitting the high notes with a typical 80's growl.
Song Highlights... "Assume the Position", its about, you guessed it, Sex! This is the best song off this release, typically dirty, "you can beg and plead, buy my sympathy, I'll put you in
my care....ASSUME THE POSITION!" ( repeat the chorus, and I swear, you will never forget this song). Another good song is "Cranky Boy", its all about Rhett here, and his attitude. This song has lots of those high note "OW'S", and grunting growls. Excellent guitar, with several solo's in this one. Another good one is "Boys wanna Fight". However my second favorite is "Movin' in for the Kill", this is another one that you won't forget, nearly perfect. Again, several solo's in it, very catchy chorus, growls, and very powerful drums.
Typical of the times, it has one ballad, "The last thing I do".

Who is Rhett Forrester? The former singer of one of the best bands of the 80s Riot, and voted in 1981 as best vocalist of the year by Burn magazine ! Rhett had his own character and swagger and could have been one of rocks biggest stars. Just listen to the song " Cranky Boy " thats Rhett Forrester. Rhett was killed in a car jacking in Atlanta Ga. in 1994 when he refused to give up his vehicle thats Rhett Forrester!

Rhetts solo album Gone With The Wind is a killer album. Its just one of those barn burners that if properly promoted could have been huge. Now its a rare hidden gem, Rhett shows his cocky attitude backed by some big rythmatic drums, played by Carl Canady of one of my other favorite bands " The Rods " and a driving bass. Talk about some burning guitar work this album is loaded with it, and when its all mixed together we get a hell of a rock n roll album. Easily one of my favorite rockers. This baby sits waiting for someone to pick up like a loaded gun ready to go off, and when it does your gonna say how in the hell did I never hear this!

If your looking for that something special in rock n roll that youve never heard before this is certainly one of my top picks for ya. Just dont drive while taking a listen, this album gives you an attitude! There isnt a skip song on here even the ballad that starts out a little slow suddenly builds up and blows you away thats Rhett Forrester. If your into some good rock n roll pick this baby up but wear a oven mit because its HOT !

Originally released in 1984, Gone With the Wind was the first solo album from Rhett Forrester, the former vocalist for Riot (on Restless Breed and Born in America). For this effort, Forrester enlisted guitarist Paul Kayen and the Rods rhythm section of Gary Bordonaro and Carl Canedy.

As you might expect, Forrester's solo material has a lot in common with the albums he recorded with Riot. Musically, Gone With the Wind is right on that line between melodic hard rock and heavy metal. It fits in the same general area as Fifth Angel, Warrior and Leatherwolf. It's got that hard rock swagger and energy, but the guitars and driving rhythms are very metal. The lyrics are a bit on the cheesy side, but hey, it was 1984 after all. Forrester sounds great of course, powerful and just a bit raw. Sadly, his career was cut short when the singer was murdered in an attempted carjacking in 1994.

Unless you're a huge Rhett Forrester and/or Riot fan, Gone With the Wind probably doesn't qualify as an essential release. It's a very solid `80s American heavy metal album though, and one that ought to satisfy fans of the harder rock and metal of the era.

Edition Notes: Gone With the Wind has been released a couple of times, but the latest and most readily available version was the 2001 reissue from Metal Mayhem.
