Re: What concert were you at that debuted a scab?

The first Ratt show without Warren or Carlos after the Blotz lawsuit. It was in Kansas. That guy with the Hello Kitty guitar was playing lead. Great show. QR opened. Place was packed. Crowd loved it. Some guys on here that were mad about the new lineup tried to tell me that the show was poorly atten...

Re: So SLAYER is back?

I called this in the other thread: Kerry was in for a rude awakening trying to take a solo project on the road. No way he'd keep all those talented guys on the road together paying them Kerry King Band wages. Occasional Slayer-sized cash infusions will help. Just read this in the blabbermouth commen...

Re: Is John 5 worth seeing live?

It's the same thing as going to see Bumblefoot or whatever - a guy playing guitar exercises disguised as songs.

You like the idea of that or you don't. I'd rather be shot.

Re: Gers with Ian Gillan on a UK kid’s show 82

Interesting... never heard any of Gillans solo stuff.

Also... you didn't see a lot of guys with those pickup covers on their basses in the early 80s.

Bull-Fucking-Shit. McCartney's Beatle played bass is more important than any Jamerson played bass ever...period!!! Yeah, McCartny could say Jamerson was a huge influence on him. But it still doesn't put Jamerson on the same level of Paul McCartney. Jamerson created the way the bass guitar is used i...

Re: KERRY KING: Single, lineup and album release date

I know King has established his name as a brand of its own pretty well over the years, but I can’t see him being able to take this lineup on tour and pay everyone enough to keep them happy without calling it “Slayer”.

Time will tell.

It stretches the definition of rock, but "Heat Waves" by Glass Animals went to #1 in 2022. They're described as a "British indie rock band" by Wikipedia. just listened. I'm willing to bend pretty far to what young people doing what they want with music, but this is flat out pop ...

Re: Velvet Revolver: "Slither" (live David Letterman Show 2004)

You know what was so great about these guys? That era in the early 2000s there was NO 80's nostalgia yet. No 80's nights. Almost no hairmetal coverbands. Velvet Revolver came out, frankly, like a big dick swingin' rock n roll band. And we hadn't seen that in a long time. There was a little punk, a l...

Re: David Lee Roth, Cinderella, Extreme Tour 1991

I don't know why this is hard to grasp. The argument on page 4 is the same as the argument on page 1... Cinderella had a lukewarm album. Their change in style wasn't a bad move (and they got some critical acclaim at the time), but none of the singles caught on. So they were still stuck trying to sh...
