Sheriff - When I'm With You
Posted by Roy on Saturday, 10.8.11 @ 20:40pm
Sheriff finally signed with Capitol Records in 1983, four years after forming in Toronto. Though the band released only one album, a self-titled LP in 1983, their single "When I'm with You" reached number one six years after it was released. Vocalist Freddy Curci, guitarist Steve De Marchi, bassist Wolf Hassel, drummer Rob Elliott and keyboard player Arnold Lanni were pressured to re-form, but they declined since Lanni and Hassel had formed Frozen Ghost while Curci and De Marchi organized Alias.

Federico "Freddy" Curci is a Canadian album-oriented rock vocalist and songwriter. He was a member of Alias and Sheriff. Curci has a multi-octave vocal range and holds the Guinness World Record for Longest Note Held in a pop song, for 30 seconds, timed and submitted by University of Houston, for the ending note of "When I'm With You."

While there is a sweet story behind this--after Sheriff's less-than-successful 1983 debut, the writer bought back the rights of the Sheriff catalog to show his then-young daughter that he had accomplished something in his life, after which "When I'm With You" hit number one--this is a typical one-hit-wonder band. All but nil chance of making the Hall of Fame, although a few of Alias's (Sheriff's successor) members are in with Heart.
