No real stories, but I saw them at L'Amour in Brooklyn in Nov 1984 (Disillusion tour), they were so f'n good. This was before they recorded the album with Max Norman and fell down the same mtv hell hole that Y&T did visually and soundwise. I met Akira once while I was on tour in Japan with somebody, but nothing special just a very quick "hello, nice to meet you"

Thank you for giving me a reason to pull up Disillusion...

Earthshaker (the Y&T album, not the Japanese band) will be next...

Y & T

At their creative peak, before they "made it" on mtv, but they're playing at night at Reading, so somebody got it.

Hahaha, WAY more supplements.

I finally was able to figure out how to get my dvd player to work and watched the Murder in the Front Row doco, and all the bonus parts.

Holy fuck.

So amazingly good I can't even describe it.

This is bringing back so many memories from HS, and not just for the music!

Scene: Doug and I walk into a party, 2020.
Ken: "I'm an elementary school teacher." Party: "That's nice."
Doug: "I've traveled the world with every cool metal band ever." Party: "Hey loser Ken, fetch us beers and keep your mouth shut while we listen to Doug's stories all night."


Keep the stories coming, Doug!!!!!!!

I can't remember if I got Girlschool to sign the back of my home made Raven shirt, or if I got Raven to sign the back of my home made Girlschool shirt, but either way, TURN IT UP...

Found a few things in a box today...

Handmade card the My Chemical Romance guys gave a few of us after they spent a month as our opening act in April / May 2005.


I waited for Ted to arrive to radio station KRQR for an interview with a couple other guys and he did not disappoint. After signing stuff and chatting with us he said "well, I better the fuck out of here, that chick's probably pissin' her pants waiting for me to show up" and he headed inside to do his interview.


I have no idea where I got the Tiffany thing. I think a bus driver I had, who had once driven for her, got it for me (sadly, I never met her).

Nice Ted Nugent Auto. And great story. Waiting outside a radio station to grab an Auto. Been awhile since I posted anything to your amazing thread so my only pick. John Entwistle you can see the wear and he inly played one song with it. Boris the Spider Sept 10 1979 at the Capital Theatre in NJ.
Also from the Capitol Theatre Ted Nugent June 18 1977. The previous Saturday night June 11 I saw Led Zepplin at MSG. Both were outstanding shows and at 16 I was hooked on live Rock and Roll.

My wife picked up my monthly CDs from Music Outlet in Enfield,CT, which is one of the great and enduring record stores. She opened up the Used Cannibal Corpse Gallery of Suicide CD and found a concert ticket and asked me if we were there. I confirmed, yes Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death and Immolation! Decibel Tour 2016. Death to all but metal!

These posters are from a tour in 1994 that started with 23 shows in 23 days in the US, and after 3 "off" days was followed by 43 shows in 44 days in Europe. The day without a show in Europe was because they were "Banned In Bremen".

70 days, 66 shows, 16 states, 14 countries, 35,000 miles.

THAT is how to tour.

Love those guys.

I saw them for the 167th time a year ago yesterday (opening for Slayer) and that was the first time I had seen them with George "singing".

Doug


PS - Correction, I just checked my records and saw that earlier that year, they had done 53 shows in a leisurely 58 days around North American. the Toledo poster dates from that run.

I had 1st row seats for the Who's first show at the Capitol Theatre ( Sadly first shows in US without Kieth Moon) and I see Entwistle getting ready to toss it, I take off and end up wrestling with 3 ir 4 other guys on the floor. All of a suddden I see pick in front of my face but my arms are being held. I relax get up from the scrum the guys are still goung at it and I calmly removed the pick from my mouth.

Ha! Fantastic. That's pretty hardcore, licking the floor of the Capital Theater.

First time I was there I was selling shirts for Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force, with Talas (Billy Sheehan) opening.

I don't remember licking the floor, though. Insert smiley face here.

Best I can say is I caught a drumstick at a George Thorogood concert in San Diego in 1986 (with the aid of some pretty good elbows to clear the space, courtesy of a childhood playing hockey in NY) and stuck around afterwards to shake hands with the band at the edge of the stage.

I’m a Pearl Jam freak, so I jumped at the opportunity to buy handwritten “Jeremy” chalk poster used in the music video. The story goes that Eddie Vedder wrote words in chalk then they green screened the words into the video. I am so psyched. The dark black photos are screen grabs from the video, and the chalk matches perfectly.

Not sure if PJ is a bit beyond this post but I wanted to share regardless. Anyone with tips on how to frame it, let me know...

For some reason, it popped into my head to go dig this video up. I remember my buddy, a guitarist who is now a producer, being most impressed by Neil Schon's solo, of all people.

I saw Pearl Jam at CGBG in November of 1991, ugh, what a boring band live. Sorry.

Voice Of The Beehive at the Marquee the next night made up for a wasted night at CBs.

Pearl Jam are neither metal, nor the Kingston Trio.

Is the reverse a chalk board too? If so then you didn't completely waste your money. Insert smiley face here.

That song may be crap, but at least it helped to cleanse the Pearl Jam from my system.

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Not used in the video, but double-sided

My Daughter was in 7th grade and there was some drama in a classroom. The teacher asked my Daughter if she saw anything and she said " That don't Befunt Me" her classmates giggled and I got called in to explain that she was saying it was none of her ( meaning my Daughter's) Business. And it was a line from a George Thorogood song. And since they were little whenever my kids asked me something that did not concern them I said "That don't Befunt you" She gave me a look that told me I would not be her choice for parent of the year. My Wife was not amused less so when I shared the story with friends and family. ( which I did exactly once in her presence). Saw George in a Club in New Brunswick NJ. And Everyone had a great time listening to a night of great Music.

I personally would vote for you as not just father of the year, but parent of the year, as well. Amazing story.

Wow, I love all these great stories and am especially jealous of the guys here that were able to get picks during a show. After literally 100's of club and arena shows over 40 some years, I have yet to get a pick as a souvenir...although I was able to get 3 drum sticks. The first two I got at a Dictators show in 1977 at the Starwood in Hollywood. The Dictators were, in my opinion, a missing link between Punk and Metal/Hard Rock with lots of energy. I was standing in front of the stage when the late great Richie Teeter cracked a stick and threw it down in front of his kit in disgust. Luckily for me, the stick hit at an angle and came right at me. I was able to quickly get my hand up and snag it on the fly, which brought a big smile and a thumbs up from Teeter. After the encore, most people filed out but about 7 of us remained on the floor screaming for more, which they obliged 2 more times...as they came out for the third encore, the lead singer came to the front of the stage and asked "who are you guys?". Afterwords, they came out and chatted with us for awhile, and brought out another drumstick for me to have a pair. Great night.
The other time was in San Diego with the Scorpions. I had seats about 35 feet from the stage and off to the left. Klaus Meine came over to our side of the stage and lofted a stick in our direction. Never thinking it would reach us, we all stood up and stuck up our hands...couldn't really see anything but felt the damn stick hit me right in the palm as it bounced off. Pissed, I told my wife if that ever happened again, I wouldn't drop it. Well, about 2 min later, here comes Klaus again and throws another one. What are the chances that he was good enough to throw it that far and that accurately? Well, this time it hit me in the hand and I caught it. I'll have to dig those sticks out of wherever they're stashed...probably some box in the garage along with many negatives I shot of bands in the 70's and early 80's including a young Lita Ford with the Runaways and during her first solo tour.

Here's some Dictators for you to hear:

I forgot how awesome "Stars" was. Dio, Halford, Tate. The 3 best voices in all of metal, then and still. Malmsteen, Lynch, Campbell - tough to find better players in the 80's. Very cool!

Agree with you on Halford and Tate, but there's a few I'd put ahead of Dio, in no particular order:

Brian Johnson
Dave Mustaine
Bruce Dickinson
Ozzy
James Hetfield
Ian Gillan
David Wayne (Metal Church)
Lemmy
Rob Zombie

and I may get criticized for these two but:
Axl Rose
Sebastian Bach

Then
Dio (although awfully powerful for a 5 footer)

Dio was good on records, but the time I saw him live he wasn't all that good.
I'd thought the performance filmed for "Black and Blue" might have just been a bad night, but no.

Of the guitar players I've seen, Malmsteen…. not even top 10. People like him, but again, just unimpressive in concert.

How is it even possible to have a list of Metal singers "even in no particular order" that has Brian Johnson BUT NO BON SCOTT??? Johnson is a solid vocalist but his best work ( Back in Black) was a tribute album to Bon Scott. And his job from day one with AC/DC was to Mimic Bon. Now you might say many are too young to have heard Bon. But I am pretty sure Every person reading this thread has listed to Highway to Hell (the Album not the single) many many times.

Bon Scott...not just great but so distinctive. Two words into any song you know it is him.

No love for Glenn Hughes? I guess it's an era thing as I was a teenager in the late 1970s-early 1980s so the formative years bands for me were Zeppelin, AC/DC, Van Halen (gods in the San Fernando Valley area while I was in high school in North Hollywood 40 or so years ago), Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, etc. Classics, you might say.

FWIW, which ain't much, I think Eddie Vedder has one of the great rock voices.

I don't recall if she'e been mentioned yet, but Joan Jett is awesome. I saw her at the Hollywood Bowl last summer and she rocked. I'm more of a punk than metal fan, though I was into the early metal bands until punk and related genres (except hardcore...yech) came on. I kinda dropped out of it in the mid-eighties, so the 'hair bands' are mostly unknown to me. Learning a lot in this thread.

Startin' a fight

Better than Ronnie?...
Johnson - not a chance. Bon Scott way better.
Mustaine - Megadeth is my FAVORITE band of all time but Dave's not better (close).
Dickinson - 3rd favorite band of all time, as good, not better (close again).
Ozzy - LOVE Black Sabbath/Ozzy, not even close talent wise.
Hetfield - no way.
Gillan - that's just silly.
Wayne - not in the same universe much less planet.
Lemmy - second favorite band, nope.
Zombie - closer to worse than best.
Rose - talented, not in the same league.
Bach - seriously one of the best metal singers, unbelievable range, but not Dio.

Hope that clears that up!

I didn't put Bon on because he was dead at the time Stars was done.

But yes of course he'd be on the All Time list.

Sorry All, I was referring to who they could have had better then Dio for the Stars album. I'd dig Bon myself up if I could. Definitely was the most distinctive and in the Top 3 for sure.

.....and to the above list, my error on Rob Zombie, not a particularly great voice, as probably can be said of Lemmy, but just love how they sound.

And my one big omission, and Winner of the Best Scream hands down.....TOM ARAYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!

That is what is wonderful about music... the varied selection even within each genre. I personally was shocked to find that ANYONE in this thread enjoys listening to George Thorogood

The most iconic voices in hard rock belong to Ozzy (without Black Sabbath, there is no heavy metal), Scott (so identifiable), Halford (greatest range and arguably best band) and Dickinson (no greater songs were ever written about English history/culture... well maybe by Led Zeppelin). This is just my oh so humble opinion.
