Savatage T Shirts

Savatage are the American heavy metal band that was founded by brothers Jon and Criss Oliva.

From Astro Skate, Tarpon Springs, they originally formed the band Avatar in 1978 from the breakdown of their respective bands Tower and Alien. They were joined by Steve Wacholz, who they nicknamed Doctor Hardware Killdrums (shortened to Doc or Doc Killdrums) as a referance to his hard style of drumming.

In 1987 the band were catapulted into a larger more mainstream audiencee and received a good deal of air play on MTV's Headbanger's Ball.

In 1993 tragedy struck the band when Criss was killed by a drunk driver, but Jon decided to continue the band. He recently admitted that after Criss' death the band was pretty much over, but in his memory he wanted to "keep his music alive".
