The definition of success story in the music industry must be selling millions of albums and selling out arenas throughout the world. But, unsigned Scottish Hard Rock band from Glasgow, Logan, have a success story of their own. Formed in 2003, the band have released three albums, "First Leaf Fallen" (2003), "Welcome To The Wasteland" (2004) and "Cruel Little World" (2006). With no label support the band have managed to push their total sales to over 30,000 in the last six years. They posted demos of their music on different American Hard Rock forums which saw them put in the bizarre situation that they had more American fans than British or Scottish. Mark Tremonti, of Alter Bridge/Creed, met them in America and not too long after, Logan were the support of Alter Bridge's UK Tour, which pushed their album sales up significantly. They also toured alongside them for the Blackbird tour in 2008, along with Hot Leg (Justin Hawkins - Lead singer) as Support for Alter Bridge. Their success also tied them up the support for Bon Jovi in their hometown in front of 40,000 at Hampden Stadium. Many of these people saw them for the first time here and went on to buy their album. This caused their most recent album to be pushed to a sell out. Meanwhile they have had their song, "The Great Unknown", as the theme for the film "The Jump Off", they have been voted Scotland's best unsigned band.

    It's just what the Scotsman said. But who would you say is Scotland's best unsigned? I'm not challenging you, just curious.
