Wikipedia states the following in part about McQueen Street (with slight edits):
“Formed in 1987, McQueen Street, originally known as “Klass“, was very successful on the southeast rock music club circuit. The idea for the name “McQueen Street” came from the street of which Derek‘s recording studio was located. In 1990, after the name was changed to McQueen Street, the band was signed to a record deal with SBK Records.
The band’s debut album, titled “McQueen Street“, was produced by Tom Werman with additional production from Steve Stevens of Billy Idol. Steve and Derek wrote and performed on “Two Worlds”. Two songs, “Money” and “My Religion” had music videos that were played on MTV‘s Headbangers Ball. “In Heaven” reached #32 on Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock Chart in early 1992.
With the grunge movement of the early 1990s, most bands whose music was based on 1980s-style rock were no longer popular. Radio stations and MTV ceased to play most mainstream rock, causing the second album not to be released. The group disbanded shortly thereafter.”
