HISTORY

Mike Tramp (born: Michael Trempenau January 14, 1961) grew up in Vesterbro - Denmark. 

Still in his youth Mike Tramp loved to play soccer and discovered Hardrock.
Mike Tramp joined the band Mabel with whom he later represented Denmark in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1978 with the song Boom Boom. 

Mabel continued in Spain where the band was very popular as a rockband. They even played as the support act for Van Halen. 
Mike Tramp packed his bags and went to New York in 1983 With mabel but the band slowly fell apart.
Vocalist Mike Tramp met guitar player Vito Bratta (ex-Dreamer) and they decided to form a band. They recruited drummer Nicki Capozzi and bassist Felix Robinson (formerly of Angel) and named their band White Lion.

White Lion was signed by Elektra Records in 1984 and records their debut album Fight to Survive. However, Elektra was unhappy with the final recording, and after refusing to release the album they terminated the contract. 

Soon after that there is some bad news. Both Capozzi and Robinson decide to leave White Lion . But sometimes bad news is in fact good news because soon the new band members are being presented: Nicki Capozzi was replaced by former Anthrax drummer Greg D Angelo, and Felix Robinson was replaced by bassist Dave Spitz (brother of Anthrax guitarist Dan Spitz). Within a month of joining, however there again is news about the band members, Dave Spitz left to play bass with Black Sabbath and was replaced by James Lomenzo The steady band line up has finally be found. White Lion is born.

White Lion records Fight to Survive all over with the new band members . After that the news came that the band is picked up by RCA for a release in Japan in 1984. The small US independent label Grand Slamm records finally releases Fight To Survive in the US on November 9, 1985. White Lion released one single from this album: Broken Heart .

Early in 1987 there is even better news , White Lion signs with Atlantic Records (which ironically is a sister label to Elektra) which on June 21, 1987, releases their breakthrough album Pride . All songs on this album were written by Mike Tramp and Vito Bratta . The first single, Wait was released on June 1, 1987, but did not hit the charts for nearly seven months. Read the full biography here...
