John Siegle was a member of the Champaign, Illinois powerpop/punk group SCREAMS. They recorded an album for MCA's 'Infinity' label in the late 70's and toured the US, Canada, and Britain. In '81 John moved to Chicago where he played with MIKE JORDAN and the ROCKAMATICS for 2 or 3 years before joining with Gary Yerkins to form the INSIDERS. INSIDERS was a strong roots rock band, providing the vehicle for Gary and John's singing/songwriting talents. Backed by James DeMonte on bass, Ed Breckenfeld on drums, and Jay O'Rourke on lead guitar and production, the group scored an MTV hit with the song 'Ghost on the Beach' from the 'Epic' album of the same name. John continues to write and perform in Chicago. Here's a CD of 11 of his best.
