From the 1950's through the late 1970s, few areas of the country boasted a more dynamic or more exciting popular music scene than Northeast Ohio and Southwest Pennsylvania. Many of the rock era’s most celebrated rock stars spent their formative years in this area.


One of the most popular area bands throughout the 70s was Youngstown, Ohio’s LAW, featuring 21-year-old Steve Acker on guitar and vocals. On the strength of Acker's songs (as well as the songs of Ronnie Lee Cunningham), and the band’s amazing live show, LAW was discovered and signed to MCA Records by Roger Daltrey of the Who. The band opened one leg of The Who’s 1976 Summer Tour. Three albums and many shows later, the band disbanded.
