Giant is an American melodic hard rock band that was formed in 1987. The band consisted of founding members Dann Huff (lead vocals & guitar) and Alan Pasqua (keyboard), and had Dan brother David Huff on drums and Mike Brignardello on bass. The Huff brothers were part of the founding members of the christian rock band White Heart. The band scored one major hit, the 1990 power ballad “I’ll See You In My Dreams,” written by Alan Pasqua and Mark Spiro. Last of the Runaways is their debut studio album. It included their biggest hit, “I’ll See You in My Dreams” along with the hit, “I’m a Believer”.
If melodic rock is your cup of tea, then Giant’s debut album, “Last Of The Runaways”, should be holding down a spot in your collection. Featuring the talents of guitarist/vocalist Dann Huff, Alan Pasqua on keyboards, and a rhythm pairing of drummer David Huff and bassist Mike Brignardello, the quartet excel at dealing out AOR aces. The big, bold commercial onslaught includes the ballad “I’ll See You In My Dreams”, “I’m A Believer”, “Innocent Days”, “It Takes Two”, “Love Welcome Home” and “Stranger To Me”. AOR classic!!!
Voted as one of The 10 Greatest AOR Albums Of All Time!

5.0 out of 5 stars what a brilliant debut,
from the opening guitar burst of Dann huff this is a non stop example of great songs. A classic of an album; all 12 songs are prime examples of guitar driven rock, and an aor classic. Best songs: innocent days and i`m a believer.
5.0 out of 5 stars how fast can he play?
Dan Huff is a phenomenal guitarist (also heard with Shania Twain!) who can outplay anyone, sing with the best, and write a good tune. Excellent rock album.
