Formerly known as Trojan, Shy featured vocalist Tony Mills, Steve Harris (guitars) (not to be confused with Iron Maiden’s bass player, Steve Harris), Paddy McKenna (keyboards), Mark Badrick (bass) and drummer Alan Kelly. Their first album, called Once Bitten…Twice…, was released in 1983. Initial reports from Kerrang! were incredibly positive, however, a reporter was increasingly sarcastic to the band in the interview that would follow. After the release, Mills dropped his David Bowie-esque make up , and Mark Badrick was replaced by former Trouble bassist Roy Davies.

Shy made their major label debut on RCA Records with 1985’s Brave the Storm. This release gained much success despite the single « Hold On (To Your love) » being disqualified from the charts, as early copies included a shrink-wrapped T-shirt. Reviews from Kerrang! were this time more positive, comparing Mill’s soaring vocals with those of Geoff Tate, vocalist of Queensrÿche.

In the eighteen months that preceded the band’s third album, Shy made a name for themselves touring with Bon Jovi, Meat Loaf, Twisted Sister, Gary Moore and UFO.

The band’s 1987 album, Excess All Areas, was recorded in Holland with producer Neil Kernon. The album featured Shy’s biggest hit, Break Down The Walls co-written with Don Dokken. The album reached Britain’s top 75, with Metal Hammer magazine being particularly appreciative, suggesting that Steve Harris could give Bon Jovi’s Richie Sambora a run for his money.
