Guitarist Steve Dougherty was involved in different musical projects in Southern California.
Dougherty in 1986 contributed to the recording of a pop album by Berlin "Count Three & Pray" and in the recording of a 1989 demo with L.A. Rocks.
In 1988 L.A. Rocks evolved into EYES.
Dougherty contacted vocalist Jeff Scott Soto - one of the singers in the L.A. Rocks project- who then joined EYES.
With the arrival of Jeff Scott Soto, Eyes signed a recording contract with Curb Records, even though EYES had already had made a demo "Windows of The Soul" for the Capitol Records.
Finally, Dougherty , Grove, Damien and Jimmy O┤Shea recorded the debut album. All but 2 songs featured swedish vocalist Marcel Jacob.
Over the years they toured with bands like: Megadeth, Judas Priest, Ozzy Osbourne, Panther, Stake out in Chains, Exodus and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
In spite of the impact caused in the band by the loss of Jeff Scott Soto, Steve Dougherty and Aldy Damien attempted to carry on, but EYES disintegrated in 1993.
