I'm looking forward to seeing Billy Squier live this summer.. I heard he is touring..I just hope maybe it's Billy the rocker this time instead of Billy & the blues..Last time i saw him was in Toronto a few years back with Styx and Bad Company and i was disappointed. His web site says he will do songs from his full catalog:

from the Piper releases to present.

 

A couple of shows i went to last year were:

The Bad Co reunion in Florida

Grand Funk, War, The Sweet in Michigan.. I was determined to see The Sweet. even though Steve Priest is the only original member (2 are deceased), they rocked!! didn't get to see much of Grand Funk though..

 

Romantics, Loverboy, Eddie Money in Atlantic City.. thought Eddie was a little off on this one..

Loverboy (didn't play long enough) and Romantics didn't disappoint though..

 

Some

I'd really like to see: that i've never seen

Alias (reunion tour)

Haywire (infrequent shows in the Nova Scotia area)

Head East (probably won't make it to SD though..)

 

 

I did go to Vancouver (by the way, I live in MD) a few years ago to see:

 

Harlequin

Headpins

Prism

Kenny Shields & Streetheart

 

Great show! Only problem was because of a curfew, Streetheart only got to play a couple of songs...

That'd be awesome to have seen them with that original line-up. I was worried about the current line-up, but they were good. If I'm 100% honest, in a live environment Chip on vocals didn't sound out o

Lebrock tonight  

oh it's real alright. just depends on whether someone has uploaded the setlist

Damn you Nick.... Adam Bomb again. Well, maybe someday I'll get to see him. Until then I have this autographed Adam Bomb CD that will just have to do. :banana:

 

Within the next 4 weeks I have Alcatrazz (w/G. Bonnett) and Seven Witches, a couple of KIX shows, and I may even go see Adler's Appetite. Then in July there is Rocklahoma.

 

 

PS ~ Hope you enjoyed the Adam Bomb show. :drink:

Hey bud...yeah it was good, but there wasn't much of a crowd .... probably down to him playing there so often and also Tuesday night may not be the best night to drag punters out!

But he put on a good show as always and the band are as tight as a gnats chuff! He sure can play guitar.

He's on again in Manchester centre at the Rockbox in a few weeks but I'm working I think....I reckon he'll get a better crowd there!

 

Strangely enough the landlord of the pub is a guy called John Brent....I used to know him years ago when he was a rock DJ in the area...I was wondering what had happened to him so I had a good chat with him. I didn't recognise him at first, well it's been about 20 years since I last saw him plus his hair is dark now and it used to be blonde so it threw me haha!

It also surprised me the bands that are coming on there for such a small place...up coming gigs are Dan Reed, Demon and Marseille....might HAVE to go to the Marseille gig!

I'd of liked to have gone to Dan Reed, saw him three times during his Dan Reed Network Days.

 

Off to see Oli Brown next month, followed by The Hampsters.

Well, I (or should I say my wallet) hope I've seen the last show for quite a while. Seen some awesome modern rock bands, which should hopefully see me through the year. Of course I'll see any random 80's hard rock band that might come out here for whatever reason, but nothing on the schedule for a while now. :)

You sick bastards (not just you, Glen, seen a few of your types - lol). I don't understand how you freaks say I "might" see HEAT! :lol: Seems these bands are being under-appreciated and should come over here to Australia where at least they know I'd appreciate them. :)

I have a couple (literally) but I'm too young to know anyone into "hair metal" and too old to know anyone into modern rock. Either way, I honestly like going by myself. I'm only there to enjoy the music anyway - not there to chat. I couldn't give a lesser f*ck in the world if I'm there by myself.

Poser. :P A man of your vintage should surely know by now that it doesn't matter what anyone thinks of you. ;)

Classic Rock Metalfest in Maryland! Info on Melodicrock.com.

Dokken, Ratt, Kix just to name a few..Right in my backyard! (30 min. drive).

Guess I'll have to skip Firefest and hit this one! Although the bands in Firefest will probably never play in the U.S. :banger:

    • The media will do what it has always done....it will switch to whatever president/party is in power and go after them at every opportunity....people have short memories, they went after Bill Clinton and the Dems without mercy over his sexcapades.... although Trump has set the bar considerably lower (underground) as to what constitutes bad/stupid behaviour so we will have to see how long it takes for the mainstream media to forget about Trump.... actually since Trump isn't really going away and will be telling anyone who listens that he will be the Republican candidate in 2024, the Dems may be looked upon with relief/favor for quite some time.... As for the Dems having their way in the 3 houses...I expect them to tear themselves apart at the seams with the progressives (regressives) fighting the moderates and getting very little of substance done, heck they may have to get moderate Republicans to work with them!!....just like the Reps in their first 2 years with Trump, they should have done a lot more but ended up fighting amongst themselves....
    • Ya know buddy, I will be honest with you, i was experimenting with substances in this frame of my life, and I dont remember the music because it was a jr high party and they only listened to shit then, I wasnt lucky where I gota go to partys in the 80s, Rap was becoming prolific, I remember sitting tripping on Acid at this one party in high school and I started feeling violent because every fucking party I went to they were all playing the same fucking 2pac cd, and it really begin to eat at me, and as the acid kicked in I stood up and walked over to the cd changer, and i was well fucking tripping, i couldnt figure out where the stop button was, i just started pushing them all, nothing was happening, and i thought people were starting to look at me, and see i couldnt figure this out, i lost my shit and just grabbed the fucker off the shelf and walked to the window and threw it down into the driveway, music was still playing, 2pac, I dont remember alot but I remember being restrained in a bedroom by some seniors waiting on my fellow baseball teammates to show up and retrieve me, I was suspended for 3 games so I just quit baseball, fuck em, I guess from what the girl I was frying with told me, I threw their changer out and busted it into pieces, the 2pac was coming from a sony discman they had plugged into the amp, that wouldve been much cheaper to replace, point is, if some fucking Venom, or Suicidal wouldve been playing, I probably wouldve had a good party, btw, all I remember about losing my virginity, was being ultra paranoid someone was gonna walk in, putting my junk in, and not even getting 5 full pumps off before I busted, then not wanting to look at the chick again, not at school, especially not there, if you guys were into the music playing your a much better man then I.
    • That's the problem with the Dems winning all 3 branches: if things don't go exactly to plan, there's no one for the media to scapegoat, unless they go back to Hillary's "vast rightwing conspiracy" mantra. We may see the ultra-left-wing progressives like AOC, Omar, and Bernie cannibalizing the moderates. There have already been hints of it around the edges, but without the Bad Orange Man to blame for everything including global warming and tooth decay, what are they going to do?
    • Max Cruise is the synthwave project of Austrailian multi-instrumentalist Benjamin Harrison.  
    • That Bad Wolves album is awesome.. shame Tommy Vext is no longer the vocalist. New album is pretty much wrote and ready to be recorded whenever they replace him. 
    • I think the debut is their weakest album añd Invincible is their weakest lead track, albeit v good. Walk away & Watch the Fire are better tho imo.  However just to clarify I would rate all 3 albums at least 85-90%  super consistent band. I also love the 2 singles so far - they would both rank in the top 20-30 songs I heard in 2020. in fact this has me interested now and I haven't properly rated an album for ages so I might later and see how it pans out.  debut will prob come out on top now lol. I think they all will be close 
    • Also, will be interesting to see how the US mdia handles the new president. They've kinda set him up as the saint vs Trumps sinner. Will he continue to get a hall pass on scrutiny? Or will they need someone else to savage, so just swap to him?
    • I've been binging on Below Deck. Far more entertaining. I mean your reality political show was entertaining for a while, but then it got very sooky. I'm no big Trump fam, but I do think that a lot of his humor went over most heads, and instead of saying "it was a joke" he just didn't give a fuck. As for cancel culture, we the poor dude who created Coon cheese lost his legacy. Seems society couldn't differentiate between real life and a racist slur. We have a reporter on the ABC here, her name is Ash Raper. Fuck knows how she been allowed to not have to change her name.... I can see Jesse James Dupree up before a court one day answering to he "if it feels good, do it" mantra That leaves the door open for far too many things lol I'm thinking that the term 'snowflakes' will be used a lot this year. It's already an annoying term, will only get worse...
