  1. Exactly. You know what you're getting from AC/DC; the same thing we've come to love for the past 40+ years.
  2. I suspect zac and I are roughly the same age and yea, Im proud to be Canadian. I remember every show Darkstone references fondly 'cept the Beachcombers. Hated it as a kid. Most of my friends had American cable but my best friend and I had what was mocked as Canadian cable; 3 channels CBC, CTV, CKND and a French version of CBC so we endured some pretty weak programming. While everyone was wolfing down their sugar cereal in front of Saturday morning cartoons we were watching: The Mighty Hercules, Rocket Robin Hood, The New Adventures of Pinocchio and Tales of the Wizard of Oz. Sea
  3. Sass is class. I agree. Hard to top this tribute. If she posts a follow up, I'd appreciate if someone posts it here. I had heard she had met with Van Halen but I'd love to hear the intimate details of what transpired between them.
  4. Great read. Thanks for the info. Will investigate further.
  5. Would love to hear the history you are referring to if you care to share it again. So Sleaze and the alternate version of Money are the only differences from the compact disc?
  6. RIP Gerald. A class act man. A class act band. The music he created within Brighton Rock still gives me goosebumps and he had one of the most recognizable voices on the planet. I feel very fortunate to have seen them play live for the first time in 2017. Gerald addressed the crowd immediately after belting out a flawless version of One More Try; "I bet you all were saying, I wonder if he can still hit those high notes?" Yup. Amazing!
  7. To advance the ball with a lateral, the player passing it really needs to sell the fact he is going to keep it on his own. That involves lateraling at the last possible moment and exposing himself to a high velocity violent hit for his efforts. It is used to advance the ball consistently and to great effect in elite flag football and touch football as there is no risk of being mowed down by a defender. I suspect another reason we don't see laterals in the NFL is because of how situational the game is itself. There seems to be a unit of 11 players specially designed for every imaginab

    "Your being personally offended doesn't mean others have to change their behavior. You have the choice to go somewhere else." This statement had me slightly worried before your clarification above as it sounded as if it was fine for anyone to personally attack another member on this board for their skin tone, sexual preferences, nationality etc. and they could either like it, lump it or leave. I always make a point to read your posts HH as they are consistently very well thought out and always well written. I trust that you will regulate accordingly and your follow up statement abo
  9. The University of North Dakota Fightin Sioux went through a similar controversy and subsequently changed their team name to the Fighting Hawks a few years back. I found this to be much ado about nothing. While I'm admittedly whiter than the screen you're reading this on, I still fail to see how the name Fightin Sioux is a derogatory moniker. And if it is, why is nobody leading the charge to have the University of Notre Dame do away with the name of their sporting department; the Fightin Irish? The Washington Redskins case is more obvious to me. While not universally recognized as a r
  10. Careful when you are seeking them out as there is another Dirty Honey, I think from North Carolina. None of this singer's groove at all, so make sure you are checking out the right band if you choose to do so.
  11. Thanks for the reminder. One of my favorite bands. Really looking forward to reading it.
  12. Friend just turned me onto them three days ago. Love the singer's vocals. Read somewhere they were the first band to top the charts (who knows which chart and which category) as an unsigned band. Can't understand why no one has signed them yet. Cool name. Cool look. Cool bar room blues rock sound.
  13. Love it! Song of the summer for me! And I personally love the artwork , especially the vivid colours in the sky.
  14. Wonder why Frontiers hasn't pushed for an Eyes reunion album.
  15. Streetheart for me, then Hardline.
  16. Is this the first time two offshoots of the same band have released albums with different lineups under the exact same name? I mean, we still knew JR's Great White was separate from Great White, right? Stranger than fiction for certain. Regarding the album; does it have to sound exactly like Guns on guitar and Lewis on vocals to find credibility since they call themselves LA Guns? Or can it stand on its own merits based on the songwriting and vocal delivery of Frohlich alone? OW! My brain hurts!
  17. I did know Young was in T2 but super cool story nonetheless. Big fan of Young. Saw him live fronting the Four Horsemen replacing Frank Starr after his tragic accident. Hope to see him in Little Caesar one day. Probably common knowledge among visitors here but I'll mention it anyway; Danny Cooksey the lead singer for Bad4Good was the red headed kid on the back of young John Connor's dirt bike with the blaster cranking GNR. Great movie!!!
  18. Vito is one of my favorite guitarists as well. Him and Nuno.
  19. About time someone signed him. Bieler is such a prolific songwriter.
  20. Wow! Last I heard the singer was in a coma from a serious head injury on a tennis court. Glad to hear he's back in action. Didn't know his brother had passed away either. Looking forward to their 3rd release. Anyone know where I can find a bonafide edition of McQueen Street 2 on cd? The one released by the band not the Russian boot.
  21. Is there some kind of riff between Blaze & Taylor?
  22. So jealous. Forgive my ignorance, Jez, but what band were you in on the cruise? I would love to do the MORC before all these acts are too old to do it any longer but that opportunity seems to be slipping away.
  23. Too funny. Bratta/Levesque was the second example I was going to use along with Pigs but I actually never read the official article; I learned about that collaboration secondhand on another site who claimed they read it in Metal Edge. Vito's playing is unbelievable and I loved the Wild Horses album with Levesque so I thought that would be a killer project between them. Oh well. Literally nothing in it for anyone, but it would be an absolute hoot if all those back issues were uploaded on a website for old subscribers like us. That I would pay a subscription to without a doubt. In the
