The Rockets were formed in 1972 by former Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels members Johnny “Bee” Badanjek and Jim McCarty. Vocals and drums were handled by Badanjek, McCarty was on lead guitar, John Fraga was on bass guitar and Marc Marcano was on keyboards. Johnny Bee was the driving force and primary songwriter for the Rockets.
In the early days, The Rockets paid their dues playing gigs at venues such as The Rainbow Room in Detroit, The People’s Ballroom in Ann Arbor, and The Rock ‘N Roll Farm in Wayne, Michigan.
The band took on a new sound in 1976 when David Gilbert was brought in by new manager Gary Lazar, who also managed Detroit RCA Victor recording artist Dan Schafer, to take over vocals from Johnny Bee and Donnie Backus took over on keyboards. Gilbert had fronted several bands and was one of several lead singers that passed through the ranks of Ted Nugent and The Amboy Dukes. In 1971, he toured with them for a year and a half before forming Shadow which led to a record deal with RSO Records.
The Rockets made five studio albums that produced several minor hits, including a rocking rendition of Fleetwood Mac’s “Oh Well”, which reached #30 on the Billboard Hot 100 the week of September 1, 1979.Always a popular group in Michigan, The Rockets received some attention outside of the state but never became a true national act.
