A long time ago I predicted one day all music would be available in one place online. Seems YouTube is becoming the fruition of that prediction. 

There are now quite a few channels where people are uploading albums. The legality of this one for another conversation. 

I'm also watching channels by producers and music lovers I really enjoy. 

Thought it might be useful to have one thread where people can recommend channels, they've come across.

First up. 

Danny Waysted. They're uploading a lot right now. All our music and I've come across a lot already I hadn't heard before. This channel is getting me through Covid.

Some cool options here for videos from back in the day, but for anyone interested in hearing from artists and producers from back in the day, I'm currently hooked on a few really awesome channels. My apologies for repeating what I know is probably on other places on this forum, but for anyone interested I'll post the channels I'm currently digging. I find this stuff so interesting, hearing all the stories from back in the day-

80's Metal Recycle Bin-

(good channel with good interviews, if not a little brief. I wish they uploaded more, but it's a good channel with some great snippets)

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtDHvKYprwccUtRdCvB17Wg

Backstage Pass-

(I know this has been mentioned on the forum, but really cool interviews with great variety of guests telling stories from back in the day. I assume people in the US might know this Eddie Trunk fella who does the interviews as he seems to be a part of the scene)

For Rockers Only-

(Again, I know I got this from somewhere here, but it's pretty cool. Mostly just really raw live recordings etc. but also a few really old/rare interviews with bands like Heavens Edge, Lefty and Heartless which were interesting. Not a tonne of content to digest, but some pretty cool little snippets) 

https://www.youtube.com/c/ForRockersOnly/videos

Full In Bloom-

(One of the ones I'm really enjoying with a bunch of interviews from a great variety of folk from back in the day. This one is also a podcast, which, as I understand, is the same content as the Youtube channel. It's a little tricky to navigate as there are some full interviews posted, some excerpts of interviews and then some really small snippets of other interviews, some already posted in full on the page. I believe this is as he is trying to direct people to the direct website where I assume they have the full interviews. Had a quick look on the website and it didn't look too easy to figure out, and may need payment, so I'm content going through the masses of youtube content, which, like I say, is very good. Basically the same kind of channel as the Backstage Pass one)

Rock N' Roll True Stories-

(not necessarily focused on "our music" at all, but a lot of interesting rock related stories on this one. It's very click-baity in it's titles and there's an absolute tonne of videos on this channel, but if you have some time there's a few cool ones to add to the playlist for some interesting videos. I often watch stories on bands I have never really followed, but still find the stories interesting).

Waste Some Time With Jason Green

(My latest find, and another really good one like Backstage Pass and Full In Bloom. A bunch of interviews with guys from back in the day, and I see some really good, interesting names pop up in the list. Looking forward to getting to them)  

https://www.youtube.com/c/WasteSomeTimewithJasonGreen/videos

And they're the ones's I'm currently digging. I didn't mention Metal School, which is another awesome one but it already has it's own thread here. If anyone else knows some similar channels - just after interviews with dudes from back in the day - musicians, producers etc. please feel free to mention. Really interesting stuff.

Further to my above post, I found another really cool channel today. Of the above, my preference by a long way is Jason Green. Some really cool interviews on that channel, and an amusing fella too. 

Anyway, it was actually in watching Jason Green's interview with Johnny Dee this afternoon (who's a dude, himself) and they kind of mentioned, in passing, an interview with Billy Childs. So I did a quick youtube search and the interview came up. Checked out the channel the interview was on and there's a banquet of really cool interviews on this one too. Some overlap with guests on Jason Green's show, but a lot are unique too. Anyway, the channel is-

80’s Glam Metalcast

https://www.youtube.com/@80sglammetalcast/videos

I should also mention it is just a podcast type of channel - well, the interviews are, at least. So no live in-person interviews that I can tell, but still cool from the few I heard this afternoon.

    • FASTER PUSSYCAT – Like A Ghost (2022) VARIOUS SOURCES - PUBLISHED NOVEMBER 29, 2022     Eighties Sunset Strip favorites FASTER PUSSYCAT are heating up the winter of 2023 with the release of new material in the form of the EP ‘Like A Ghost‘. This release is the first for the band under the Golden Robot umbrella with Taime Downe saying earlier this year “The band and I are over the moon to join the Golden Robot Records rock-n-roll family. We are super excited to release some of our badass new tunes globally – we know the label see our vision and supports the band and we feel completely at home here.” The new songs comes just a few months before Faster Pussycat are expected to tour overseas including Australia. Not bad for a band formed four decades ago and still delivers kick ass rock n’ roll. ‘Like a Ghost‘ is a track about growing up in the 70’s, listening to the radio and doing what kids do and the memories it brings back. It features Taime‘s signature vocals carrying the song through to completion. The production is second to none with blistering guitars and the band in full force. ‘Pirate Love‘, a cover of the legend Johnny Thunders stays true to the original with strong instrumentals, killer vocals and an edge to it – everything you would expect from Faster Pussycat. ‘Nola’ is a song inspired by New Orleans, a city that front man Taime Downe holds dear to his heart. When the band started working on making new music for a release “NOLA” was the obvious choice to lead with. Past year Downe and guitarist Sam Bam Koltun began working together in the studio tracking guitars for this song. And the band is also making available again their cover of Rick Springfield’s classic ‘Jessie’s Girl’ recorded some time ago. Highly Recommended   01 – Like a Ghost 02 – Pirate Love 03 – Nola 04 – Jessie’s Girl Taime Downe – lead and backing vocals Xristian Simon – guitar Sam “Bam” Koltun – guitar, backing vocals Danny Nordahl – bass, backing vocals Chad Stewart – drums BUY www.amazon.com/music/player/albums/B0BLF6SGYX
    • New video for 'Firestarter'. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the latest release from Dennis Ward and Khymera, "Hold Your Ground" will be available on February 10, 2023. Dennis handles lead vocals, bass, and keyboards and is joined by guitarist Michael Klein, keyboardist Eric Ragno, and drummer MIchael Kolar, with Pete Newdeck contributing backing vocals. As has to be expected with Khymera and Dennis, "Hold Your Ground" is another fine slice of high pedigree melodic rock. Khymera has in fact built its reputation as one of the best examples of what great European melodic rock is all about: crystal clear production, soaring vocals, killer musicianship, and songwriting that reminds fans of the heydays of the genre when bands like Giuffria, Icon, and Signal were releasing their classic albums. While it started out as an alliance between Italian producer/musician Daniele Liverani and then Kansas singer Steve Walsh, Khymera developed into a regular musical project when bassist and producer Dennis Ward (Magnum, Pink Cream 69) entered the fold. While known as a bassist, Dennis always sang background vocals with his bands, so he was more than ready and willing to take over the lead vocals for Khymera when the opportunity presented itself.   After releasing the albums "A New Promise" (2005) and "The Greatest Wonder" (2008), Dennis took a break from Khymera for some time before returning with "The Grand Design" (2015). He then returned with another new Khymera album five years later, “Master of Illusions” (2020). Musically, "Master Of Illusions" followed the logical progression of the musical path that was started when Dennis joined the project and was a strong, extremely melodic release, showcasing the fantastic vocal abilities of Dennis and skills as a songwriter and producer. Mercifully, the wait between albums is a bit shorter this time as 2023 will see the release of Dennis and Khymera's next chapter, "Hold Your Ground", an absolute tour de force of glorious melodic rock.Tracklisting:1.

    • urgh both of those songs are a cheese fest. Hard pass 
    • My CD arrived. Gotta say it is one of the cheapest, shittiest packaging of a cd I have seen. It is just a double panel with a disk (no tray). No booklet, no lyrics, very little info. printed. Terrible artwork (as you can see above). Glad I only paid $17 as it isn't worth more than that presentation wise. Musically I have only listened once so far so will reserve judgement until then. Note - Jack Jones only played on one track, the lead single. But he is touring with the band.
    • Slash - 4 The Midnight - Heroes Thirty Days Out - Thirty Days Out  Journey - Original Album Classics (Journey, Look Into the Future, Next) Every Day Life - American Standard 
    • Brilliant tune... reminds me of prime MSG, to be honest. Maybe a slight 'Anytime' vibe? But a magnificent song.  But the song I've had in my head all week is '100 thousand years.' Man I love that one. I rated this album fairly earlier in the year, but with a bit of a jumbled year of listening I haven't concentrated too much on albums this year. Listening to everything now, and I have to say that this album stood out as one I maybe did not give it's due credit. Those two songs are excellent, and I also like 'Get Away' and 'Crash & Burn' of the rest. Some nice gear on here. 
    • Exactly. Same goes for Sunstorm.
