The most immediate problem - a shortage of a crucial plastic resin, caused by an explosion March 31 at a plant in Germany - could surface in a few weeks. And later this year or beyond, automakers could be confronted with an even bigger crisis, running short of parts simply because there aren't enough factories and people to make them.

    More Details Hide Details Jim Gillette began singing as a teen, having been exposed to heavy metal through a local skating rink. His goal was to have a higher range than Rob Halford. He went through extensive opera training and developed his own method. Jim Gillette started his career in Phoenix, Arizona with a band called Slut. He sang on their demo tape entitled "Perversion for a Price". Jim heard about a band called Tuff that needed a singer, so he immediately auditioned and then joined the band. Tuff released two demos, "Knock Yourself Out", and "J'lamour Demo". It was during this time that he also dabbled at guitar, keyboard, harmonica, and various percussion instruments, though he never pursued them seriously, rather working on improving his singing. Jim left Tuff to go to Hollywood. At a beach party, he met guitar virtuoso Michael Angelo Batio and they soon formed the band Nitro. Jim and Michael recorded Proud To Be Loud in 1987.
