Rockhead was a Canadian hard rock music group formed in 1991 in Vancouver by Bob Rock.

History[edit]

Already a well-established music producer, guitarist Bob Rock formed the group in 1991 with his Payola$ and Rock and Hyde bandmate, drummer Chris Taylor, as well as vocalist Steve Jack and bassist Jamey Koch.[1] Jack and Koch, as well as keyboardist John Webster, were all local Vancouver, British Columbia musicians.[2] Their debut single was called "Heartland". Rock produced the band's debut effort, which was released on Capitol Records in 1992.[3] Members of Bon Jovi, The Cult, and Little Caesar guested on the album.[2] The singles "Bed of Roses" and "Chelsea Rose" followed,[4] as did a tour supporting Bon Jovi.[5] However, the album did not sell well,[3] and soon after the group disbanded and Rock returned to his career in production.
