White Tiger was an American glam metal band.

Biography[edit]

The band was formed by former Kiss guitarist Mark St. John and former Black Sabbath vocalist David Donato, along with St. John's younger brother and guitar technician during his time in Kiss, Michael Norton, on bass, and drummer Brian James Fox.

The band whose Glam metal image and sound was somewhat similar to 80's-era Kiss were dropped from their record label in later 1986 after executives saw no potential hit singles on their self-titled debut album.

The band recorded a 7 track demo in 1988 with the same line-up, the intention was to record a second album but the band split up before they could complete the album.

On April 5, 2007, Mark St. John died from an apparent cerebral hemorrhage at age 51.[1]

White Tiger was the only album released in 1986 by the band until the 1999 release of the demo collection "Raw".[2]
