Some good, interesting Polls recently, but about time we had a few of these damned 'Poll' things for the 'Old Gits' here at HH, so will add 80-83 aswell. Some may well cringe, some may say 'Who The F**k', Some will not care, but Some (hopefully) may go and check some of these top releases out and gain a bit of listening education!!!!. Amongst these are some of my all time 'Fave' albums even after 25 + years of listening pleasure!!!!

It should be noted that although it wasn't the best year for music (sorry Jez :P ) a very, very sexy young child was brought into the world this year. They call it the 'Year of Geoff' nowadays, don't they?

Since there was no sign of Kiss' DYNASTY or Judas Priest's UNLEASHED IN THE EAST on this list, I went with Cheap Trick's DREAM POLICE. Cheap Trick were at the top of their game at this time.

Thought I'd put some of the lesser obvious releases on here just to see who has heard of what, plus most here are my personal faves of that year!!!. Saying that, there are some 'Genre' classics on here aswell with New England, Airborne, Axe etc. Just depends on what things you were listening to at the end of the 70's & beginning of the 80's or weather you were even born?? :lol:

I was only 9 to. But I did listen to the radio a lot. I used to get scolded by my mom for changing all her pre-set oldies/doo wop stations to all the local rock stations. :lol:

 

From what I knew of, I liked Styx, Journey, Molly Hatchet and .38 Special, but Cheap Trick is the one I remember most of all.

Flippin heck....why not make it easy for me!!!!! Classic album piled upon classic album there, but with my little twisted way I voted for Aviary (even though I got into them sometime after bands like Axe and Saga) just because I like it's weirdness, plus it's just a top album that gets tons of plays still.

    • Forgot to mention this here, but last month I was officially declared as in remission.
    • Hope he makes a full recovery. If it was me, I would change next years tour name to Operation Heartcrime.
    • Former QUEENSRŸCHE Singer GEOFF TATE Underwent Aortic Valve Replacement December 6, 2022   May contain affiliate links   Former QUEENSRŸCHE singer Geoff Tate has revealed that he underwent an aortic valve replacement this past summer. According to NHS, an aortic valve replacement is a type of open-heart surgery used to treat problems with the heart's aortic valve.   The aortic valve controls the flow of blood out from the heart to the rest of the body. An aortic valve replacement involves removing a faulty or damaged valve and replacing it with a new valve made from synthetic materials or animal tissue.   The 63-year-old musician discussed his health in a new interview with Beneath A Desert Sky. Asked how he is feeling, nearly five months after his operation, Tate said: "I feel really good overall. This might be the first time I'm telling someone in the press what I went to the hospital for. I had a procedure done called an aortic valve replacement in my heart. Long story short, I was feeling very fatigued one day while on tour. It was challenging for me to climb stairs. Anyway, I thought it best to get checked out, and after several tests from my doctor, he indicated that this particular type of surgery needed to be done. I'd say it took around a month [after the surgery] before I started feeling better. Honestly, I could barely walk after it, and I couldn't sing at all. Before this, I'd never been in a hospital in my life."   He added: "I can't say that I'm feeling '100 percent' better, so to speak. However, I'm definitely feeling a lot better now than I was over the summer. Just taking it a day at a time and am grateful to get back on the road." On July 3, Tate took to his Facebook page to share a photo of him with Dr. Sami Kueri from the department of cardiovascular surgery at the Universitäts-Herzzentrum Freiburg-Bad Krozingen (University Heart Center Freiburg) in Bad Krozingen, Germany, and he included the following message: "All my gratitude to the talented Dr. Sami Kueri for giving me a healthy heart!! Feeling so much better each day!" In June, Tate said that he would take a few months off the road as he recovered from a medical procedure.   On June 13, Geoff, who fronted QUEENSRŸCHE for 30 years — from the band's inception through 2012 — took to his social media to write: "I am having a medical procedure and my health professionals want me to recover over the Summer. I will be back and rocking South America in January. Looking forward to seeing everyone on the road." Tate's recent tour celebrated the 30th anniversary of QUEENSRŸCHE's "Empire" and "Rage For Order" albums. In April 2014, Tate and QUEENSRŸCHE announced that a settlement had been reached after a nearly two-year legal battle where the singer sued over the rights to the QUEENSRŸCHE name after being fired in 2012. Fellow original QUEENSRŸCHE members Michael Wilton (guitar),Scott Rockenfield (drums) and Eddie Jackson (bass) responded with a countersuit. The settlement included an agreement that Wilton, Rockenfield and Jackson would continue as QUEENSRŸCHE, while Tate would have the sole right to perform the albums "Operation: Mindcrime" and "Operation: Mindcrime II" in their entirety live.   Tate was replaced in QUEENSRŸCHE by former CRIMSON GLORY singer Todd La Torre. Geoff will embark on a tour in 2023 to celebrate the 35th anniversary of "Operation: Mindcrime".
