La Paz are a powerful melodic rock band. Based in Scotland, they toured extensively during the mid to late 1980s, were well respected musically and built a very healthy and loyal fan base. They were covered regularly in the UK music press and were on the cusp of a recording contract when...well, when one of the reversals of fortune that happen in the music business
stepped in and their record company changed the script without warning.
Doogie White (vocals) headed off to London where he eventually joined Ritchie Blackmore in his final Rainbow lineup and that was pretty much that for La Paz...and then in January 2008, Doogie and Chic McSherry (guitar) were invited to play at the prestigious 96.3 Rock Radio's
1st Birthday Party. They played a 5 number acoustic set to almost 1000 people in The Garage, Glasgow along with a host of other rock luminaries (Gun, SAHB, Thunder, Logan, The Almighty).
That night was the first time they'd played
together in almost 19 years and started the itch that just had to be
scratched culminating in them signing a recording contract with
Metal Mind Productions with two releases to date:
Granite in February 2012
The Dark And The Light May
