Off the top of my head... Harem Scarem - Gravity & No Regrets Absolutely freakin' awesome! Nearly every I play either of these songs once is not enough & I have to hit repeat.

You can find the early GW CDs on Discogs & eBay although the shipping to the UK can be expensive from some sellers. Don't bother trying to buy them from Amazon UK though, waaay too expensive.

Been doing a ton of pre Rockingham listening etc & re acquainting my love for Great White's Shot in the Dark album, only have a vinyl copy not CD. The CD is a little awkward to track down & doesn't appear to be available via Apple, Amazon etc in mp3 format (not that I'd normally go for that being a staunch CD/LP guy). Is there some kind of band or legal aggro with this album that I was

Yep, the Mrs & I will be at Rockingham this weekend & I hope to extend a hearty handshake again those who frequent these pages. It's gonna be great to be catching up with friends old & new. Hopefully highlights will be Kix, Fortune, Harem Scarem, Vince Neil (fingers crossed) & Loverboy but to be honest really looking forward to ALL the bands & artists. I thought the orga

In reference to the recent topic on DLR vs Sammy Hagar (solo albums) & my unfamiliarity with his solo albums in what order would you guys & gals rate the Hagar albums. Doesn't matter whether only a handful or loads of them. It's a pity there is not a boxset of his first half dozen or so releases.

I can't say i'm that familiar with Sammy Hagar's solo discography apart from a couple of compilations & the All Night Long album. From these in the most part i've been a bit underwhelmed. I'm intimate with his contributions to Montrose, HSAS, Van Halen & Chickenfoot but never bothered with his early solo stuff. I have always been a staunch Roth fan I adore all of his solo releases &am

Surprised no one has mentioned it so far but Ozzy Osborne using 'Oh Fortuna' from Carmina Burana by Carl Orff is a masterstroke & never got old IMHO.

In 2010 I saw the amazing Oceansize in Brighton on their final tour where they used a hilarious intro tape that featured distorted guitar feedback & loads of samples of onstage banter of Cronos from Venom. I got the impression this went way over the heads of the post-rock crowd judging by the amount I was laughing & they weren't.

This was released in the UK on September 29th & according to Amazon.com 'DVD Release Date: September 29, 2017' When it states 'Usually ships within 1 to 3 weeks' probably means it's out of stock. Saw this at my local cinema, sound & picture was superb, setlist long & varied. Renditions of Gilmour solo songs pretty much perfect. The Floyd tracks are mostly very good, one or two

I wasn't offended by the joke, just thought it was in poor taste. Perhaps you should remind me to crack a joke when your job is made redundant.

Mucho respect to the legendary Tommy Vance. As stated very influential over here in the UK. He & Tony Wilson gave us one of the very few opportunities to regularly hear Rock & Metal on the radio back in the day. I didn't realise quite how long before I started listening the Friday Rock Show had been running - Broadcast on BBC Radio 1 from 10pm to midnight on Friday nights from 17 Novem

Easter 1984 was when I was turned on to Rock music & the Friday Rock Show was an essential part of my education especially the import / new release slot. I like many others no doubt used to tape the show to listen to again & used to make a mix tape of the best tracks. Mid 1985 was a particularly fertile period where many of my most treasured albums were previewed by TV. My Fave Mix-

Have you been to Amsterdam before? Other recommendations, places to go for eats, drinks etc Obviously Amsterdam is famous for offering a particular pastime but that has changed a little since i was last there. Best to do your own research on that subject. If you like good beer then hunt out any of the many 'Brown Caf├ęs' traditional bars for delicious brews, good rustic food & conviv

New Rock section was vast when I was last there. If jazz or classical is yer thing they've got possibly the biggest selection I've seen since the 80s. Rec
