Love Life
Love Life was a pop-metal band along the lines of Bon Jovi, with a slightly more blues-influenced sound. They seem to stick out on a label that is mostly known for more alternative music, but it should be noted that Blonde Vinyl tried to be a diverse label, and not just an alternative label. When seem from that angle, bands like Love Life and Sass O’Frass Tunic fit in just fine. After Blonde Vinyl folded, they changed name to Fear Not and released one album on Pakaderm Records in 1993 with a different guitarist

Love Life started off as a band called Reaction, with Darin Eby, Larry Worley, Gary Hansen, and Mike Link (of Mad at the World fame). Darin Eby and Mike Link started Reaction in October 1987. Gary Hansen answered an ad in Recycler magazine for a drummer. They interviewed several vocalists, but none worked until Larry Worley called Mike Link (because he had auditioned for another band he was in the year before). Reaction wrote and recorded several songs and performed two shows (see image to the right) before Link quit the band around June 1989. The band carried on, recruiting Rob Romero, and changed their name to Love Life.
