Few new bands have caused as much of a stir with the release of their debut single and few have, simultaneously, generated so much backlash as German hard rockers Kingdom Come did with “”Get It On.”” Mistaken by many fans as a reunion of the surviving members of Led Zeppelin, the quintet was derisively known to some as “”Kingdom Clone.”” Signed to Polydor, lead singer Lenny Wolf put together a band and entered the studio with producer Bob Rock, an engineer and musician who would later find success working with Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, and Metallica. When “”Get It On”” was leaked to several radio stations around the U.S., it generated considerable buzz due to the speculation of the “”mystery”” band. The Zeppelin comparisons were enough to bolster early sales and the record shipped gold as “”Get It On”” became a sizable AOR hit and the band took part in the Monsters of Rock tour with acts like Van Halen and the Scorpions. However, a heavy backlash soon followed and subsequent releases from their self-titled debut failed to make much impact on radio. Kingdom Come entered the studio to record a follow-up with producer Keith Olsen at the helm. The resulting In Your Face, released in 1989, did little to quell the Zeppelin comparisons.”
