We hit on two old ones from Bon Jovi last week so I'm going to hit on two from old Def Leppard this week. Loved Pyromania. Loved Hysteria. Loved the whole Def Lep sound, stage presence, and anthems. On Through the Night is overlooked but we'll go with High and Dry. This was before the sing alongs (mostly) and has that down and out working class Brit drunk on cheap wine feel. That's a sound just as much as the… Continue
I'm sure we've all heard about Kevin, so this lyrical challenge will be done with a heavy heart. Stay with us this week, I thought we'd take a look back at Kevin's career with Quiet Riot. They were one of my favorite bands, and even though when I met Dubrow he wasn't very approachable, he's one of the reasons I loved and still love this music.
1. Hot as a pistol, loaded like a gun.
2. I like black and white, you like black and white.
3. Moan Lisa…Continue

DuBrow, 52, was found dead at about 5:20 p.m. on Sunday, a spokeswoman for the Clark County Coroner’s Office said. She said an autopsy would be conducted to determine the…Continue
with some stuff before I leave the great state of North Carolina for the frozen tundra of South Dakota, so I hope everyone had a great holiday and are starting out their entire holiday season right. Thanks to Alicia for the Krokus Rocklahoma update, we look forward to seeing them. I had a good time last night with my buddy's son. He's 13 months old and is starting to walk pretty good now. There was alot of people at the party (musical differences prevelant as always) and we were trying to…Continue
but I relistened to The Great Radio Controversy last night by Tesla, and I think it might be one of my more overlooked albums of the eighties. Heaven's Trail was a great hard rock song. Lovesong of course is a killer ballad, and the other songs aren't that bad. Tesla is hard to hate. Good straightforward rock and roll all the time from those guys. I think we might feature it this week on…
Early Bon Jovi for this melee...of which I was (and am) a huge fan. Slippery When Wet was the album that thrust these boys into the national spotlight, but my favorite album has always been 7800 Degrees Fahranheit. Tokyo Road vs. In And Out Of Love is our matchup, and it's a good one. In And Out Of Love has a permanent place in every MP3 I've ever owned (unfortunately I've lost thousands of those… Continue
1. Bound to lose your mind, live on borrowed time.
2. I don't mind, if living this way is right.
3. Fire blasting, cutting edge.
Today for our Obscure Metal Song of the Week. "Went to a party last Saturday night, didn't get laid...." Story of my life, Ms. Ford. This came off her Lita album, which threw Lita Ford into the metal spotlight, and every teenage male's imagination (including mine), in the year of our metal 1988. Lita, who had been in the game for awhile at this point (Runaways) was never given the props she deserved because of her sexpot image. It's a… Continue
I know, at some point between 1986 and 1989, I had in my posession a Great White EP that had a remaster of some of the older stuff (Face the Day, I think?) and a cover of some Zeppelin songs (Rock and Roll, Immigrant song...those I'm sure of) and I can't find it anywhere. Not on their Wiki page, not on the band's website, not anywhere. If I remember, the cover had Mark Kendall poised over Jack Russell while Russell was on a hospital gurney. Kendall was either holding a guitar or a drill....I…Continue
First time for us here Angels. We're going to do a live greatest hits, and THE live album from my youth...World Wide Live from the Scorps gets my vote. I'm going to start this AOTW by saying if you don't stop by and see us and hear Joe Saytch do his Klaus imitation from this record while you are at Rocklahoma next year, you are doing yourself a GRAVE injustice. It's funny, and dead on. We might sell tickets. MFA members free of course.… Continue
with our Wednesday feature of new bands, so without further interruption we'll get everyone familiar with Rhino Bucket, who have been closely compared to AC/DC in sound, but are one of the few "new" bands that have found success in the eighties, nineties, and today with a great blues-rock formula. Formed in 1987 they released their first album, Rhino Bucket, in 1990. They had some success in the early nineties with Get Used To It, which led them to…Continue

1. Misery she loves you
You're her company
2. Stranger on this Land
Where dreams are known to hide.
3. In the fights of the war
and my heart has broken down.
Jetboy. These guys have been rumored to be hitting the bill in Rocklahoma, so anyone who is making their way to the metal mecca next year might need to catch up with them. We're here to help. Jetboy was formed in the mid 1980's and took on the persona and musical style closely linked to Hanoi Rocks and some of the punk influenced glamsters invading the L.A. music scene. In researching these guys and reading the bios, they went through more label…Continue
barely....but I think I'll make it. In our quest to bring you not only metal, but modern world survival tips, I would like to offer this tidbit. After a night of several doses of the creature, like my night last night, I've found that 27 cups of the strongest coffee in the world and a 2 and 1/2 hour blazing hot shower can really help. If you want sappy advice on how to open up to your spouse, go check Ann Landers. If you want advice on how to kill a… Continue

Goes to Ozzy this week in honor of our members Joe and Crazy From The Heat taking in Ozzy Tuesday night in South Dakota. Good show, from their verbal reports (where's the print boys?) and I of course am jealous because I've never seem him. I had an invite, but I have to head to that frozen tundra later this month and it just wouldn't work out. A little vodka, a few pills, and some formaldahyde and I'm sure Ozzy will be right back at it, so hopefully… Continue
