  1. Wtf is going on this week?! 😔 From ZZ Top’s Facebook page: "We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top'. We will forever be connected to that "Blues Shuffle in C.” You will be missed greatly, amigo. Frank & Billy

Helloween - Keeper of the Seven Keys Part II 1988 101. Saxon - Wheels of Steel 1980 The breakdown: 1980: 4 1981: 7 1982: 2 1983: 8 1984: 9 1985: 5 1986: 10 1987: 21 1988: 16 1989: 19 I turned 14 in the summer of 1986, and started doing anything I could think of around the house to earn a buck, and that, combined with birthday and Christmas money began funding my music addiction via Columbia House and BMG. It makes sense that so many of my picks are from that year forward. My God, how good were the last 3 years of the decade? Unreal. Rankings after 21-25 or so became really difficult, and to be honest, there's not a ton of difference in my mind between 21 and 101. Sooooooooo much good stuff in the 80s! A few groups like Winger, Warrant, and House of Lords are intentionally absent just in case I decide to do the 90s 101
  3. Damn... terrible news. Metal Church's recent output with Mike has been tremendous... R.I.P.
  4. From the Karate Kid III soundtrack "Out For the Count" "Blue Murder" possible B-side from some version of "Miles Away" ? "Just Another Face" a demo version of "On the Inside"
  5. 1. Solution 2. Turn to Black 3. Red Brick City 4. Tree in the Wind 5. Revolution 6. Personal Issue No. 1 7. Medicine Man 8. Follow This Moment 9. Now I'm Home 10. Faith Seb Byford – Guitar and Vocals Biff Byford – Bass and Vocals Tom Witts – Drums Dave KempKeyboards and Saxophone Silver Lining Music release the first project by Saxon's Biff Byford and son Seb Byford of Naked Six. On July 23rd 2021, there’s going to be a new rock ‘n’ roll sheriff in town, and as their name suggests, Heavy Water aren’t for the light-hearted. Soaked in gritty, riff-baked blues, yet rich with the sound and meter of classic hard rock, Red Brick City’s ten songs refuses to let you go. From the taut, elastic swing of the ‘Solution’ riff to the rich, layered balladic strains of ‘Tree in the Wind’, Red Brick City moves with the class and cadence of a cracking journey uniting vintage rock ‘n’ roll sensibilities with the crackle and excitement of a fresh, youthful perspective. With Seb on guitar and Biff on bass duties and both providing their vocal talents the foundations for Heavy Water’s sound are set in both that incredible father/son chemistry and a lifetime of know-how and experiences. Take the title track -and first single- ‘Red Brick City’, all steam and smoulder wrapped around a riff Soundgarden would’ve been proud of, and then there’s the sun-soaked smile of ‘Follow This Moment’ with harmonies evoking the Beach Boys relayed through Led Zeppelin, a gorgeous ‘70’s trip right down to the fade out. Produced by Seb Byford and Biff Byford, with Jacky Lehmann mastering, Red Brick City is a rich, lustrous ride through profoundly rewarding rock waters.
  6. My favorite track off their current release:
  7. New music from Dickinson and company… https://loudwire.com/iron-maiden-writing-on-the-wall-song-lyrics-meaning/
  8. https://www.facebook.com/RockTalkMitchLafon No details as of yet; story just coming out...
  9. Whether you happen to like the song he discusses in this video or not, it is so awesome to see someone reacting to a song in this manner; as a YouTube commenter says, "This is basically watching a man eargasm for 12 minutes" I enjoy most of the videos he does, and would be interested if any of you have any favorites that he has done... This is another really good one that may surprise you... and then more standard vids like this one..
  10. That Ratt disc is possibly the best "Best of" ever... just couldn't leave it off!
  11. They kinda did, but left off "You Could Be Mine" for some reason... https://heavyharmonies.com/cgi-bin/glamcd.cgi?BandNum=237&CDName=Use Your Illusion
  12. Dokken - Back For the Attack Van Halen - 5150 Queensryche - Operation: Mindcrime Ratt: Ratt n Roll 81-91 Def Leppard - Hysteria
