Blue Tears is a hard rock band from Jackson, Tennessee that enjoyed some short-lived fame in the late-80s. However, the band was then basically ignored due to the wave of alternative/grunge music and the members got involved in other projects. However, the band resurfaced in 2006 with a new album. Frontman Gregg Fulkerson formed Blue Tears in 1983 when he was just 17 years old, with some childhood friends. The band started playing covers and doing small gigs around their hometown, but quickly progressed to playing their original music with steady shows with audiences peaking at 1,000 people.
