Re: Was being in KISS a nightmare?

I would have thought it was hell because of Gene and Paul. Not exactly fun guys. No fucking sense of humor. I listened to Paul's book and I was like:"Damn. If I had to tour with this sour fucking grape, I'd be drinking a fifth of jack per night and doing all the drugs I could get my hands on.&q...

Re: I never got the appeal of Dokken.

Lynch was what separated them from the rest of the early 80s LA bands. Motley Crue, Ratt, Quiet Riot or any of the lesser LA bands had much weaker guitar play. Meh. In that company, I'd say Don was easily the best singer. To me, Dokken had great guitar riffs and leads, great vocals, great songs (af...

Re: Music Artists who broke later into their careers?

I also thought about Huey Lewis, but how late is later? He was maybe around 32 or 33 when he broke. I guess it fits, as in 1981 or 1983 making it at 32, 33 might have seemed like making it at 40 or 45. He definitely looked like a grown man, and that was on top of the band not really looking like th...

Re: Why did WASP not hit the heights of Motley etc..

I agree that their guitar parts arent all that fun to play, and that most of their riffs aren't iconic, but I also sorta felt that was by design. The music was a base for Blackie's singing and vocal melodies and catchy songs, and he had those in spades. This would holdup if you had a singer with a ...

Re: 3 80's bands that can still bring it...

Your chronography is a little skewed. When Jetboy got to town, Poison was still a club band~no record. They were definitely the band to aim for, but there were no charts for them to shoot up yet. GNR got huge too, and by the time Poison's record came out, either band could sell out 1000 seats pretty...

Meh. EVERYBODY was getting signed at the time. Seemed like it was about 5 minutes between Taime bringing a recording of his new band's rehearsal to them putting out a record.

Jetboy - There was a time decades ago when Poison, GNR and Jetboy were the top unsigned bands on the LA strip. The first two bands became mega-stars while Jetboy didn't do much of anything. (Their two records flopped.) But they still give 110% when they play. Naw, L.A. Was like; Poison and GNR were...

I love Blackie's voice, thought their riffs were great and enjoyed the repetitive choruses. What riffs? WASP songs were usually just chords behind a vocal. Look at the difference between "I wanna be somebody" and "Lay it Down", for instance...the WASP song has NO musical hook/ri...

Re: Why did WASP not hit the heights of Motley etc..

Reasons: They were ugly. Blackie's voice was ugly. They were really shitty at coming up with riffs/musical hooks. Their songs were banal excuses for repetitive choruses. They were in a weird place between metal and glam...not enough of either to appeal to the big audiences for each. They did "s...
