The Return of.. "BANDS in CONCERT"

Recommended Posts

About 2 years ago or so I was listing bands who I've seen live. Then asking others to comment on them. I'm just trying to do my part to get some participation going here at HH.

 

 

Has anyone else seen any of these bands? Ever wanted to see any of these bands? Is it possible that even if you have seen one of these bands you wouldn't admit to it? Add in whatever else you want about the bands.

 

I can't remember all the bands I listed before... I hope I don't repeat too many.

 

 

Here we go: :popcorn:

 

1.) RHINO BUCKET

 

2.) HURRICANE

 

3.) PHANTOM BLUE

 

4.) PANTERA

 

5.) MAD MAX

I have seen MAD MAX twice so far. Being a German band this wasn't so difficult. Once it was with JADED HEART playing the same night and Axel Kruse, who used to be the drummer of both bands, hit the skins both times. He must have been pretty tired after the show ! :lol:

 

Anyway, I love this band. Michael Voss is a great singer. :banger:

Never saw none of'em but I wish I'd seen Pantera in their early days. When COWBOYS FROM HELL first came out they played a little club in Spring Valley NY that I used to frequent called "World Stage," this was basically when nobody outside of Texas knew who they were yet. I may have seen the video for "Cowboys from Hell" on Headbanger's Ball or whatever, and when I saw they were coming there I remember saying to my brother "Y'know, that band's supposed to be great, maybe we should check'em out," but for one reason or another never got around to it.

 

A few weeks later my brother and I went to the same club to see the Ramones, and while we were waiting outside the club for the doors to open it seemed like half of the people out there with us were wearing brand new Pantera shirts bought at that show, and they were all raving about what an awesome live band they were and how great the show was. So I was like "dang."

 

My interest in Pantera pretty much peaked after VULGAR DISPLAY OF POWER but I've seen enough video clips of them in the POWER METAL/C.F.H./V.D.O.P. days to know that they were pretty much on fire at that point and it would've been amazing to see them during that "on the rise" period.

I saw PANTERA on the 'Great Southern Trendkill' tour with White Zombie(their last tour prior to Rob going solo) and Deftones(their first tour) opening. It was at the Ampitheater in St Louis and there had to be 15,000 people there which is crazy considering how un-commeerical Pantera is/where. I'm not a huge Deftones guy so didn't care about them but remember them playing their single at the time but can't remember what it's call(I'm thinking Seven Words but I'm probably wrong). White Zombie had all these effects with cool B movies playing and plenty of fireworks and were pretty damn entertaining and hearing "Thunderkiss 65" and "Black Sunshine" live was cool as f@#k. Pantera though were a whole other level(or maybe a 'New Level') and were just brutal with moshing not only going on in the lawn but up in the seats where I was at. By the time 'Fucking Hostile' was played the section I was in was being torn to shreds with people pushing on the seat in front of them and tearing them out of the cement and throwing them in the rows towards the front. If you didn't have bruises leaving that show then you weren't there. :headbanger:

Saw Rhino Bucket at a dive bar called Peaches in Wisconsin Rapids during the Pain tour.

 

They blew the roof off of the joint! Awesome live band and super cool guys to boot. When they heard we drove 13 hours to see them they invited us backstage for beers.

 

One of my all time favorite shows.

 

Haven't seen any of the others though Pantera in a small venue and Hurricane would be of interest.

    • No atheist denies love is a thing. It has chemicals that make it happen but that closeness between human beings is clearly a thing and it feels good. It's also an essential part of pair bonding and the raising of the next generation.  You believe in life after death. I do too. I look at it every time I see my children. My part of the cycle of life ends when I stop puffing though.   
    • When it comes down to it, it is the love that matters. I feel the love of Christ in my life. I feel the certainty that He loves me. An atheist says that does not exist, it's imaginary. You even deny love to even be a thing, it's a chemical, it has no meaning. You walk outside, you see trees, you hear birdsong, and it means nothing. I see beauty everywhere I go, the beauty of Christ and His creation. I know beauty can be corrupted. I know evil exists. I know there is death. That is free will, baby. A person chooses to do what they do. Do I care if you believe what I know to be true to my core of being? No, not really. It's like someone saying to me "Def Leppard's Pyromania sucks". I know the music moves me and I love it. With Christ in my life it is that feeling x 1000. If it angers you that I have this love, as it seems to for some here, I can only apologise. It would be like not breathing to deny it. If that hurts your feelings cause once upon a time some church or Christian hurt you, I can just say, don't blame God for the followers. Evil appears in every element. Humans are fallible. Humans do bad shit. I am only responsible for my own soul. Do I want God to come down and intervene in every evil? Hell no. I love that we are free to choose. Forcing someone to love you is not love. Also, how about people be responsible for what they choose to do rather than blame God? You say there is nothing but death and darkness at the end. I know this is just a plane of existence and death has lost its sting. Again, I stress, I don't care if you agree or not. I'm not here to judge you. You are free to choose. I just ask for the same courtesy that you accept I don't share your views and that you can move past your hatred for that choice (not all on this site, just some).
    • Probably the wisest thing said on this thread.  Realistically, we're all in this position.

    • From MelodicRock Classics: MRC008 – HEADWAY (Featuring Steve McClintock) – Headway                                     1CD Limited Edition Unreleased pomp-AOR / melodic rock album from 1980 featuring vocalist and guitarist Steven McClintock. Includes original master tracks plus a couple of live bonus tracks recorded in 1981.    
    • To be honest, it doesn't really concern me if he did or didn't. I put it out there are a kind of olive branch (ie: not everything is completely imaginary and made up) Not many lives were well documented 2000 years ago. Likelihood is that he existed, and had some small amount of notoriety. Was killed and became a Randy Rhodes or Jeff Buckley. A lot more famous after death than when alive. The bibles changed over the years, his exploits became more impressive and eventually  became a demi god. Ironically I love easter and Jesus stories. They make great stories
    • That's really not proven. Opinions split. On the balance of it there is a fair chance he existed but it cannot be proven definitively he did.  His life isn't well documented outside of the bible.  It's long but this is a good video on the topic.     
    • I thank that may be partially due to his delivery style. He'll read part of a quote/sentence/article, make a pithy remark, lather rinse repeat. So it takes him a while to get through things and for the full point to come across. I think if he cut down his breaks by 50% it would be much more digestable. Still, as Lefties go, he's seemingly got more brain power and common sense than many...
