World War III was formed in 1982 in Philadelphia and comprised of brothers Gary and Dan Hammer plus enigmatic vocalist Tipa Sparrs (Timothy Ralp Stump, who later joined WHITEFOX). Over the next 3 years World War III would also feature two drummers who would go on to international success - Dean Davidson (BRITNY FOX , BLACKEYED SUSAN) and Johnny Dee (BRITNY FOX , WAYSTED, DORO). Originally released in 1985 World War III was a huge success in Europe and this CD re-issue also contains the extremely rare 1982 7" single which has seen prices of over $500 on eBay. This is the complete World War III collection and is very highly recommended to all fans and collectors of 80s Melodic Metal!!
Tipa Sparrs died July, 7th, 2019
