80's Classic Rock / Re: BLT/ Bruce Lorden Trower
« on: Today at 12:45:32 AM »
These guys kicked ass. Always was a huge Trower fan and with Bruce and Lorden they were great together. I guess maybe because it was the early 80's but never understood how this band didn't gain more commercial attention and success and get some radio play. Great band for the time they were together.

Progressive Rock / Re: ELO (Electric Light Orchestra)

Here is another full show September 23, 2018 Vienna. Aside from the fact it is just Jeff Lynne and longtime keyboardist Richard Tandy. They surround themselves with very capable musicians and Jeff still sounds very good. It is definitely cool to see them performing all this great songs again.

Jimmy Farrar died 10/29/18 at age 67 of heart failure. He was a former singer of Molly Hatchet that replaced Danny Joe Brown on vocals from 1980-1982 and appeared on the albums Beatin The Odds and Take No Prisoners., Danny Joe rejoined the band following Jimmy Farrar's departure in 1982. Farrar then went on to play with The Southern Rock All Stars and Gator Country, both of which featured original members of Molly Hatchet. He also played with a band called Predator for six years.

Perfect Strangers (Deep Purple cover) live with Matt LaPorte 2012 Florida. Todd on drums and vocals  8) Man does he channel some Dickinson on this one, sounds more Dickinson than Gillan.

Psyaxis: Black Dawn Rising. Todd guesting on vocals live, not perfect sound quality but get to hear him doing some heavier metal here from 2012.

70's & 80's Heavy Metal bands / Re: KISS
« on: November 03, 2018, 03:09:00 AM »
I'm not a huge fan. I saw the last reunion tour with Ace and Peter and enjoyed the production and effects and all and they played a good set. I also saw them on a small club date tour back in the 90's.

  If the ticket prices weren't overpriced I would maybe entertain seeing a Philly show (as they have just announced a second show) but only if they were bringing at least Ace and Bruce along, and preferably Vinnie too. Peter would be icing on the cake as I don't expect much out of him performance wise these days but it would be cool if all four of them were there. I liked the 70's and 80's stuff.

Yeah really, thought something happened to ya Hope all is well Radar.

Oh wow, I just went back and looked at what I wrote under Yes, as a big Bruford fan that was a major error on my behalf listing him as an original member. He too is just a classic era member. One of only two remaining Correct.

The other version of Yes (ARW) consisting of the original singer, and two classic era members (yes I would consider Rabin a classic era member, since they basically had two classic era's of commercial viability) In my opinion they get the nod as the most authentic version since Squire is no longer with us.

I don't think I've ever seen or heard of this guy and his band. This shit is right up my alley. Great stuff, some killer soulful blues.

These guy's are cool. Pretty good shit for as far back as 1965/66. I Just Can't Wait was probably my favorite of those.

Southern Rock / Re: Gov't Mule
« on: November 03, 2018, 02:40:23 AM »
Topics merged, no biggie.

Some great stuff, I never dug too deep into these guys but should have. Makes me kick myself I haven't caught them live as of yet. Love Warren's stuff with the Allman Brothers and saw them live several times him and Dickie together were some blistering guitar jams.
