Mike Baker
September 2, 1963 – October 29, 2008

mike-bakerMike Baker was the lead singer of ’80s progressive metal band, Shadow Gallery.  Formed in 1985 as Sorcerer, the band soon changed their name before signing to independent progressive rock label, Magna Carta Records in 1991.  Shadow Gallery, and Baker’s vocals had more in common with Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and Queensryche than the pop metal bands that were more in fashion at the time.  During the late ’90s, the band formed a kinship with like-minded band, Dream Theater, whose James LaBrie sang on Shadow Gallery’s 1998 song, “I Believe.”   Mike Baker, 45, died of a heart attack on October 29, 2008.
