Hammer Damage was founded in 1978 by Mike Hammer and Dave Zagar (a.k.a Donny Damage) after their split from the Rubber City Rebels. (www.rubbercityrebels.com)

The original line-up included George Cabaniss on guitar, Scott Winkler on bass, Damage on guitar and Hammer on drums.
The Hammer Damage Band started out in 1978 and quickly built a strong following in the Akron-Kent music scene. They also enjoyed some modest success in Cleveland.

Some of the band's highlights included opening for the B-52's and Public Image at the Cleveland Agora and several shows in NYC with the Dead Boys.

The band released a couple of singles and appeared on a compilation of Ohio bands.

After some extended trips to New York and LA, and several line-up changes, the band finally fizzled out around 1982.
