Breakfast Club









Breakfast Club

The group was formed in New York in the late-70s, and went through several lineups including one in which pop icon Madonna was the drummer, before settling on brothers Dan (vocals) and Ed (guitar) Gilroy, Gary Burke (bass), Paul Kauk (keyboards), Stephen Bray (drums), and later Randy Jackson (bass) and E. Doctor Smith (The Drummstick) percussion, in the mid-'80s. They signed with Ze Records and released their eponymous album in 1987, which spawned the US Top Ten hit "Right On Track."

A second album was recorded but never released. Their last single was a remake of The Beatles classic song Drive My Car from the movie License to Drive. Shortly afterwards the band broke-up. Bray later co-wrote several big hits with and for Madonna. They were nominated in the category of Best New Artist at the grammy awards in 1988, losing out to Jody Watley. Many of their music videos, including Right on Track, were filmed by Jeff Stein, director of The Who documentary The Kids are Alright.
