That was fun.
I remember Rock And Roll Mercenaries. Actually quite liked it.

Did not know he did the Gillette thing, but now I do I'm amazed I never realised.

Great video, really fun to watch. Loved St Elmo's Fire but hadn't realised it was sung by a brit. He had a great voice, shame his other material was naff.

 

This video by the same guy but doing Dead or Alive 'You spin me round' is great too

Pretty interesting. I liked Naughty Naughty as a teenager. Now it reminds me of hanging out at a game room and misbehaving way back then.

I'd never come across the Naughty Naughty song before. Makes me think of that Chuck Berry hit 'wouldn't you like to play with my ding a ling' :screwy:

I never cared much for that song either. (Naughty Naughty I mean; My DIng-a-Ling is beyond awful).

If he wasn't sitting there wearing a hoodie I'd think the guy was kinda funny and did a good segment.

 

I don't know Parr too well, but some of those tunes after 'St Elmo's Fire' sounded pretty good in the brief snippets I heard there.

 

One of the wonderful things to come out of seeing that was this;

Lol I remember loving that song naughty naughty when I was around 18. I remember having the 45 single and playing like it crazy! That song reminds so much of the 80's and high school. But then all that st. elmo stuff does.

    • Fap fap fap fap fap... 2020 could wind up being the very year for releases that 2019 wasn't.
    • Mediocre song, mediocre vocals.  Guy sounds like a lesser version of about seven different singers.
    • Yep, that's a good start.
    • I dig that song.  Want to hear more.
    • Yeaaah...I hate that solo.  For me, the second half of that song is awful.  The first is off the charts great.  That signature riff?  Incredible.  But when it slows down, it dies.
    • Paul  mixes both Wicked and Radio Sun, Steve features in both. Don't if he got digs down here, it mainly Melbourne where he based .Also he might come down to get a suntan (lol).  
    • From facebook: ”THE DARK DELIGHT” out on April 3rd! Swedish melodic metal band DYNAZTY to release new album ”THE DARK DELIGHT” on April 3rd. First single ”PRESENCE OF MIND” out on January 30th. Formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 2008, DYNAZTY has since released 6 albums in a mere 10 year window.  Straying from their early days of 80’s influenced Hardrock, the band has developed and refined their sound into something that merges the modern metal scene with the past, crafting something wholly unique. Today the band is comprised of highly respected and sought after musicians, active on the metal scene in more than one way. Bassist Jonathan Olsson can also be seen in both LINDEMANN and PAIN, guitarist Love Magnusson and drummer Georg Härnsten Egg frequently tours with rock legends such as DEE SNIDER and JOE LYNN TURNER. Guitarist Mikael Lavér has been featured with both LINDEMANN and JOE LYNN TURNER, while singer Nils Molin can be heard and seen around the globe with the ever rising star of fellow Swedish band AMARANTHE. DYNAZTY are now on April 3rd set to release their biggest and most engrossing album yet - ”THE DARK DELIGHT”. Singer Nils Molin says about the album: ”We pulled out all the stops, pulled no punches and held nothing back on this one. ”THE DARK DELIGHT” is the complete vision of what this band has always wanted to be”.   Spearheaded by the first single/music video ”PRESENCE OF MIND”, DYNAZTY enters the new decade with a bang. The single and music video of PRESENCE OF MIND will be released on all platforms on January 30th. ”PRESENCE OF MIND showcases the raw nature of our band and is just the kind of groovy and melodic onslaught of a song we always wanted to release as a first single”.
