Reb Beach playing Black Magic

Reb Beach has played in the bands Winger, Dokken and Whitesnake  Alice Cooper

Winger - Pull (1993)

Pull is Winger’s third album and marked a distinctive shift in the sound of the band from 80s party rock to a more modern progressively heavy album.  The best comparison to Winger’s album progression would be like Warrant and their Dog Eat Dog album compared to Cherry Pie

Musically, many fans and non-fans enjoy Pull the most from Winger, but the time period when the album was released was not friendly to 80s bands and the album did not sell like their first two releases.

If you missed out on Pull the first time around, definitely check it out!

Reb Beach (born Richard Earl Beach, Jr. on August 31, 1963, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) is an American rock guitarist. He is a member of the bands Winger and Whitesnake. He is the younger brother of John Beach Voiceguy. Beach is best known for his work in the melodic rock band Winger in the late 1980s to mid 1990s.

After graduating from Fox Chapel Area High School and attending Berklee College of Music in the early 1980s, he played in Fiona’s backing band and became an accomplished studio musician.

While working with Fiona, he was introduced to Kip Winger who was touring with Alice Cooper at the time. Eventually they formed the band Sahara along with Rod Morgenstein and Paul Taylor, which was later renamed to Winger.

Winger recorded and toured in support of three albums, Winger (1988), In the Heart of the Young (1990) and Pull (1993). The band also released a number of hit singles, including “Seventeen”, “Madalaine”, “Headed for a Heartbreak” and “Miles Away”.

After Winger disbanded in the mid 1990s, Beach first joined Alice Cooper’s band and later replaced George Lynch in the heavy metal band Dokken. With Dokken he recorded one studio album titled Erase The Slate and a live DVD titled Live From The Sun.

He was also involved with Sega, as he recorded the soundtracks of Daytona USA 2.

Since leaving Dokken, Beach has been a part of several different recording and touring projects. In addition to sporadic touring with Winger, he released a solo effort entitledMasquerade in 2002. Since 2003 has been a member David Coverdale’s current incarnation of Whitesnake.

A “supergroup” project called The Mob with King’s X frontman Doug Pinnick and Night Ranger drummer Kelly Keagy, resulted in a single self-titled album, released in 2005.

A reformed Winger released their first studio recording in over a decade, IV in 2006.

He replaced Jeff Watson in Night Ranger for a series of dates in Japan and the US, but announced his departure in January 2008.
