Tommy Thayer in Oregon Music Hall of Fame

Tommy and Black & Blue in Oregon Hall of Fame
Tommy tells the story...

Saturday, October 9th, 2010 Black 'N Blue was proudly inducted into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame. The ceremony and party at Portland's Roseland Theatre included dear friends, family and a ton of B 'N B fans. A fantastic introduction by Peter Tashjian, son of our beloved manager Garo, told the story of how in 1983, five irrepressible young rockers (barely out of high school) made their way to Hollywood to take their shot at the big time. After our introduction, induction and receipt of OMHOF plaques, we jumped onstage for a 30-minute set of B 'N B faves, including "Hold On To 18", "Miss Mystery" and "Nasty Nasty" among others. It was a great feeling to get together with Jaime, Pete, Patrick and Woop and let the good times roll again; and to celebrate all things Black 'N Blue!
