Quoted from vid1900:

Blow your eardrums out with high frequencies.
I saw them open for Alice Cooper and that singer's five note range falsetto literally made me chew up a napkin and plug my poor ears.
I'm glad I did, because I can still hear today.

Every song on that album is a mutherfeaking rush of guitar shreeding like no other. Lots going on behind the scenes of course but I'm still in awe of the album 33 years later. The singer on that album was Robert Fleischman from Journey, and he was forced to sing that way.

That's a shame he was forced to sing, it was the most brutal hour of my life.

He sounds much better when no one is stepping on his tail:

Riggs - Radar Rider

In light of the Tesla being launched into space......should've been a Vette.

That is not good. Mind you, all these guys are getting old ... that’s why about 10 years ago I made the decision to see all my favourite bands before they quit/die.

Only 2 left on the list ...

Let’s kick off the day with some good old 70s rock n roll.

Have I mentioned the Led Zeppelin pin I’m making .... ?

This really sucks - Rob Halford said Tipton only decided 5 days ago that his time was up. He must have been having trouble performing. My god, he’s -70-!!

#312 9 months ago

Since this is a hard rock/ metal thread, how bout some Jethro Tull?

Yep, it's the end of Priest. I'm sure they are just finishing the commitments for this tour. Sad - both KK and now Glenn.

It doesn't mean the end. Just means the perfect time for a Judas Priest pinball machine!

Dunno ... as long as Rob can still sing they’ll probably keep it going.

Looks like they have bought in Andy Sneap from the UK as touring guitarist.

Ian Hill is the only original member ... he’s been there since 1969! Remember Al Atkins was the original singer before Rob. Halford joined in 73 and Tipton in 74.

So let’s crank up the best Fleetwood Mac cover you’ll hear today.

And some Joan Baez while we're at it?

Let's keep it cranked!

Tipton was/still is an elite song writer. Going to Priest, Saxon, and Black Star Riders in March. Loving the new Saxon Thunderbolt record.

#322 9 months ago

Unleashed in the East is a great album.

Nothing lasts forever I guess.

#323 9 months ago

And to think I thought Priest was done when Les Binks left the band before that album was released. I guess it's all relative. That being said, Binks was an awesome drummer.

#326 9 months ago

4:06 Greatness. I still feel so foolish for not knowing any other Priest than Painkiller but also love the fact that I've gotten to discover the 70's stuff and 80's gold at this point when I can appreciate it even more so. Its win win.

#327 9 months ago

Ur in for a ShockAAAAAAAAAA, love it.

#328 9 months ago

Some classic Thin Lizzy from 1976. I hadn't seen this before ....

Love Brian Robertson. The king of the rock wah wah pedal.

I always wanted to play like him when I was a teenager. My dream guitar was a black Les Paul like he has on Live and Dangerous ... I got one eventually, a 1980s model. It was f**ken tone dead lol. Sometimes the dream is better than reality haha.

I saw that Heaven and Hell tour here in Auckland. Its the only time I ever got to see Dio perform.

Small in stature ... kicked ass on stage. So cool ...

Same, I did see Dio in the early 90's opening for Megadeth but at that time is was all about Megadeth wish I could go back not even sure what album Dio was riding on.

When the Holy Diver album came out in 1984, I saw it in the store and thought
“Cool cover! What the f**k is a Dio?” ... as a 14 year old kid would ...

Bought it and it blew my mind! Great singing, and awesome guitar playing by Vivian Campbell.

rd

Lol at this ... it’s from the Offical live video that came out back in the 80s. Hear Vivian play the wrong guitar part at 1.27 ... wonder they didn’t edit it out and tidy it up.

#332 8 months ago

Holy Diver came out in 1983. As a 13yr-old metal-head in 1983 (hey look, we have the same age ), I already knew DIO from Sabbath!

#333 8 months ago

I was never a big Chicago fan, but after watching a documentary Searching For Terry last night, I have a whole new respect for the man. A most underrated songwriter and guitar player.

Watch him shred thru this live version of 25 or 6 to 4.

I wasn’t into Black Sabbath when I was 10. I doubt you were either ...

I was 11 when I saw Zeppelin do Stairway from Song remains the Same. The next day I had the double cassette and a few weeks later a black Swan Song Zep shirt.

I can’t recall ever seeing an 8 track for sale new here. Maybe back in the 70s (before my time..) but I don’t think we had the players here, at least in large numbers. Certainly the cars never had them like they did in the States.

Probably a bit like the Beta VCR players. There were a few around but 99% of people here had VHS so beta went the way of the dinosaurs ...

Loved the Desolation Boulevard album, still trying to figure out what the song ‘Sweet FA’ is about.

#344 8 months ago

Always thought a Deep Purple pin would be killer - wish there were more fans. Highway Star hurry-up, Space Truckin multiball, Lazy loops, Child in Time wizard mode? It would be a blast!!

It's about one bad ass guitar solo at the end. That album pretty much kicks ass front to back.

Here's Heathen's version of Sweet's Set Me free.

#347 8 months ago

Jesus when I was 10 it was all about this guy and now we know for him it was all about me. Still a fan.

Nazareth - No Mean City

Great album with some of my favorite artwork. The artwork really fits the dark, echoey recording well. Spooky and eerie.
