Hardline is an American band playing a combination of Heavy Metal and Glam Metal.


Hardline is a band created by brothers Johnny Gioeli and Joey Gioeli, who had previously played in the bands Killerhit and Brunette (which at one point was the top-drawing band in Hollywood, setting the all-time attendance record at Gazzarri's), later played in the band Gravity, and have since returned to Hardline. The band originally also included guitarist Neal Schon of Journey and Bad English, bassist Todd Jensen (ex-Sequel), and drummer Deen Castronovo. The group was marketed as something of a glam metal band, due to the Gioelli brothers having long hair and dressing in a glam metal style, but their sound had as much in common with hard rock and AOR.

Neal Schon left and then did several projects before finally rejoining Journey. Todd Jensen and Deen Castronovo left to join Ozzy Osbourne, though Jensen was replaced by Geezer Butler. Eventually, Deen Castronovo also joined Journey.Drummer Bobby Rock played on Hardline's second album, II. He had previously played several times with the Gioeli brothers in the band Brunette, replacing their regular drummer. They met via Rock's former Vinnie Vincent Invasion bandmate Dana Strum, who produced one of Brunette's demos, on which Rock did some drum tracks.Angel keyboardist Michael T. Ross joined the band for II and the live DVD, when they headlined "The Gods Festival" in Bradfordmarker, England, June 2002.
