From The Vaults - Hair Metal Mansion Edition - Volume 2

Thanks for taking the time to read edition #2 of 'From The Vaults' - I don't pretend to be a 'record review-er' - I just describe what I hear, and by passing it along to you I, hopefully, introduce the majority of you to some cool bands/albums that you might not either know about, or just know a little about...and, naturally, I hope these become beloved additions to your metal cd library. I keep pausing at the keyboard today because I'm continually being blown away by the album I'm gonna…

Katie Jake's brought out the warm local fans to rock the night with Lovechild, along with local rockin' bands. They hit the stage at 10:30 p.m. with their explosive hit "The Bomb." Then Adam, taking a look around at the crowd, said " I see some women out there that can be TROUBLE with a capital T ...", which rolls into the next song, "Trouble".

The crowd joins in right away, feeling the entertaining driving beat. ( rhythm section…

Something needs to be done...what are self-respecting (yeah, right), hard-working metal fans to do about the state of our collections when, no matter how hard you look, you just can't seem to find those missing titles (on CD, of course) that you had 'back in the day' on vinyl and/or cassette? Almost as frustrating as THAT is when you DO find a copy, the price tag is jacked-up so high that it would require that you take out a second mortgage on your home to afford the d**n thing! Anybody…

A Tygers Of Pan Tang FYI...

any fans of one of the best NWOBHM bands ever, Tygers Of Pan Tang? Just an FYI for ya, in case you didn't know...they're still recording! Yep...I went to today to ask someone directly connected with the band about why I can't find a reasonably priced copy of their 'Spellbound' cd anywhere - unless you consider $40 + a reasonably priced cd...I just happen to think that's a little outrageous...anyway, while I was there, I clicked on the 'music' tab on their site, and lo and… Continue

From The Vaults - Hair Metal Mansion Edition - Volume 1

Hey, everyone! A brief bit of info before the 'blog' - Andrew invitied me to his website after reading some of my blogs on the 'House Of Hair' website; THOSE blogs were predominantly cd and/or concert reviews, something I enjoy doing. Since that fateful day, I have blogged on a few different topics, but I never returned to that format; well, today is a NEW day...most days are...! Anyhow, I like to 're-introduce' or recommend certain metal/hard rock cds to my friends when I have the…

You scratch your head, and scream in frustration...

Corporate radio stations really drive me insane...yeah, I KNOW they play certain songs (ad nauseum, I might add) over and over and over and over...but what I always end up yelling is 'Hey! There's 'X' amount of songs on this CD! Do you think you can devote some time to find ANOTHER song to give some air-time to?' Or maybe 2 songs? As PASSIONATE fans, I KNOW you own the albums/ have your personal 'non-radio' favorites ON those cds; and yet, your moronic radio station program director…

KISS - It needs to be said, and I hope to get responses...

This is probably gonna be a little long-winded, so I hope you'll bear with me...last month (February) marked the 36th anniversary of the first snare-and-bass drum kick-off of 'Strutter' from 1974's 'Kiss' album...from the first time I heard them (it was a 'classroom party' in 5th grade...some kid put his copy of 'Alive' on the turntable, and I was hooked from the opening chords of 'Deuce,' and I was hooked HARD), Kiss has been 'my band' - the band that I looked to for giving me something…
