Whitesnake also comes to mind as a true blues-rock and hair metal band.  Tons of others were blues-influenced, but as far as really having blues at the core of their sound, Whitesnake should jump right to the forefront. 

I always found the Crue to be very bluesy at their core...only it was filtered through glam, sleaze, strippers and cocaine.

Agreed.  The key to that was Mick Mars transforming his blues chops into his trademark sleaze-metal riff sound.  Ten Seconds to Love!!!

Rather fitting - I've chosen to make the Crue's version of "Smokin' in the Boys' Room" our opener for Saturday night.

You should write and perform an original song called "Teh River."

Hahahaha.  I will take that into consideration.

Whenever I leave work, I come down one of the kinda side streets that runs perpendicular to Front Street, along the Susquehanna River.  Often, when I reach and turn onto Front Street, I (embarassingly enough) cannot stop myself from pointing and doing my best Geddy Lee "TEH RIVER!!" impression.

Well, I just have to sing it like normal, but I guess I really SHOULD try to pronounce it "teh".  Somehow.

Did you ever get to see that Mr. Big show yet?

I'm looking forward to your review.  The G3 stuff is pretty good.  I love that there's an outlet like that for shredders to do just that and not be snubbed for it.  Great set lists from all on that one.

Yeah, definitely.  And the DVD isn't bad at all for fan-shot footage.

The big four?  :biggrin:

I missed this earlier.

Is there any other way?  Although, if I had my way, I'd replace the cocaine with legendary amounts of Jack.

Outstanding.  An old buddy of mine that knows me well enough to know my taste in music suggested the following "must-haves" when I asked him for hair metal suggestions:

Bulletboys -- Bulletboys
Def Leppard -- High n Dry and Pyromania
Dokken -- Back for the Attack
LA Guns -- L.A. Guns
Skid Row -- Skid Row
Tora Tora -- Surprise! Attack
Whitesnake -- Whitesnake

Yeah, I know, Def Leppard and Whitesnake aren't necessarily "hair metal" but they're within reach.  I do have Whitesnake, Skid Row and Back for the Attack.  I'm familiar with the Def Lep albums also, so I'm left a little unfamiliar with the Bulletboys, L.A. Guns, and Tora Tora albums.  Anyone familiar?

Smooth Up In Ya, I know and it's not bad.  I've actually had several people tell me to check out the Bulletboys.  I'm pretty much on a kick to suck up any old hair metal I can, so that I can become even more of an authority on it.  :)

Not a Bulle Boys fan at all.  Sorry.  I gave them a shot back in '91.  Didn't take.

Because of this thread, I am doing a Badlands marathon this morning.

:metal  I'm going to have to find some people who can play some Badlands.  I'd love to demo a few songs of theirs if someone could lay down the instrumental tracks.

Dangerous Toys -- Dangerous Toys
Jackyl -- Jackyl

Saigon Kick -- Saigon Kick and The Lizard
Shotgun Messiah -- Second Coming

Older and Bolder?  Hell, I'm 18 and I barely make a sound.

But for the purposes of shameless self plugging, I make a sound on our website (www.myspace.com/brokincyrcle).  Just uploaded our "demo".  Basically 5 cover tunes chopped up into under a minute pieces and run into one continuous song.  I sing the first 4, my guitarist sings the last.

Saigon Kick's The Lizard has some awesome stuff on it, Cozmo. 
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Can't believe I never actually saw this video before:  Warlock - All We Are.  Classic '80s.  Too bad they were kinda overlooked here in the states.  I remember trading away my copy of Appetite For Destruction for this Warlock album--yes, it's that good.

Another semi-obscure one:  Kick Axe - On The Road To Rock.  Just... :metalol:

Lastly:  House Of Lords - Can't Find My Way Home

Enjoy, me little glammies.  Enjoy.

All We Are is killer.  Fantastic choice.  Just makes you want to pump your fist in the air and shout along.

On the Road to Rock.  :metalol: is right.  Good tune, but it looks like these guys raided the dressing room that Manowar and Twisted Sister were sharing.  :rollin

House of Lords, I know we'd discussed them before.  Another band I really need to check out, for certain.
