After seeing the list of "bands" mentioned above, I'm glad I was born in the 50s.......
ok...How to explain ...VH was MY intro into "rock"...then the following week I discovered IRON MAIDEN,,,then Priest..AH...7th-.8th grade those formative yrs.....and goes on to Metallica WITH DAVE!!.. hard to explain my soul attachment to this album.....particularly this song......
somebody ...anybody....please help me understand?
yeah Stevie is still HOT!
Not sure if this will work or not, it's a video of my band playing a Slayer song. I'm on Bass, Rob on guitar, Andy on drums and Ryan on vocals.
I'd just chalk it up to being a musical quirk. For example, my favorite music is thrash but I love what I call '80s cheese like synth pop or new wave kind of stuff. The stuff that I used to make fun of when I was in high school. You simply could NOT like that stuff and be a metal head back then unless you wanted to get your ass kicked. Nowadays, it's like a guilty pleasure.
How about some burnouts with your rock and roll?
Musical quirks...Just ran into one last month that has turned into an ear worm. I will preface this with the fact that I have never been a Freddy Mercury fan. I have never been a Queen fan. Too mainstream for me. I always listened to stuff nobody ever heard of, or weren't popular yet. I remember first time my dad saw Freddy Mercury. He said "He could bite a goat's ass through a chain link fence".
I was sitting in the kitchen and wife was in the living room watching the end of Bohemian Rhapsody. Watched the Live Aid part and thought what a bunch of movie hype BS. So I googled Queen Live Aid. The real show was better than the movie IMO. Mercury in his "wife beater" T-shirt had over 70,000 people in the palm of his hand in Wembley stadium. Stage presence. Brian May shredding a guitar and no one really cared. If anyone can come up with a better front man, I'd like to know about it. This was 35 years ago. From about 4:10 on Radio Ga Ga and Hammer to fall are outstanding and he was sick as f*ck.
Ya, I have exactly the same thing going on, metal all the time in the shop for lifting and car stuff with my 30+ year old Kenwood amp and Klipsch speakers driven by my tablet. However, I have a soft spot for Fleetwood Mac and most of the 70's, 80's stuff that isnt metal.
Stevie still looks good from the neck up, but those big black dresses are a couple ax-handles wider in the caboose than they used to be.
Then I got into gangster RAP, used to drive through the projects playing P.A.N. by Two live crew, I will not post it here,, HAA HA
