Still influenced by KISS's current tour as well.

Hey, I went to KIiSS in Manchester on Friday night. No miming there at all. Paul Stanley was passable but as always, the show was entertaining. I had to say thank you for all the pleasure they’ve given me since I was 10 years old.

They don’t play many of my favourite songs Live, but they are always worth a watch.

Good to see a new Pretty Maids. Recent albums have been very good.

I played Future World in the car today.

And new Lord is out today.  Got the album for free from some guy on the PPUSA FB page.  Not sure why he gives albums away for free, but I'll take it!

https://lordofficial.bandcamp.com/album/fallen-idols

It's also up on Spotify.

The dude pays for it, and then sends it as a "gift" via bandcamp (to 5 people).  He seems to do this routinely with certain albums.  Katt got a copy too (and got a copy of Darkwater's album earlier this year too).

Yeah that guy rocks. I think Kade got me interested in Lord (or was it Chad?)  in my last roulette so I'm psyched to listen to the album this weekend.

I haven't found the time to read through this but will post before I forget about it.

https://limelightmagazine.com/category/cassette-chronicles/

It's called the Cassette Chronicles and runs through memories of around 100 of the best (mostly) metal and hair metal albums from back in the day.  Seems like it would be a decent read.

Brent, here's another blog you might find interesting. My son's best friend's father is a rocker, and he introduced me to the guy that writes this. It's pretty interesting. I mean, I don't think he knows a lot more than you or I, but to do the research and write it all out is pretty cool. It's done by Bob Mayo, who used to play with Wargasm back in the day.

Cool - will check it out.

You should catch up and shoot the breeze with Mr Cassette Chronicles - he has a whole page devoted to ticket stubs  ;D

Had a read of the first few pages. The list was a Who’s Who Of my early music collection. I don’t necessarily agree with him his opinions on the songs and there’s a couple of albums I wouldn’t have been seen dead with (Bruce Hornsby, Thompson Twins), but it’s an interesting read.

Nice little line-up developing here for March in Melbourne ..........I think they are over doing it on the prices though , even though it's a full day/weekend thing.  The costs of getting all these bands in (second tier or not) would be huge but I am just not sure people will pay this sort of $$

Anyway.........if I miraculously find some money , there's some artists worth seeing in there.

There's some pretty decent artists here really.  Crazy Lixx, Paul Laine, FM, Eclipse, Teramaze, Kip and Tony too.  Woulnd't mind going if it were in my area.

Plenty of time to plan - and for Tim to send me his poster of Kip in the shower so I can get it signed.

Hmm.....time of year isn't great but isn't horrible either really man.  If something comes up down there between May and August I reckon we make it happen.

Yeah not too bad at all.  I was disappointed by his last solo album to be honest, so hopefully this one is better.  Some cool stuff going on in the solos there too.

That's an awesome tune and I think better than most of the tracks off the last two Stryper albums.

For fans of Gotthard and Ronnie Romero...........I think I will just forget Gotthard and focus on this band (Coreleoni).  The only reason for this band to even exist is becasue Leo Leoni is frustrated that new Gotthard is a half-assed version of the old band.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBuVEQLRpy8


Album out in Sept and if this is the single , then I'm hoping for a classic Gotthard sounding disc.

Never new much of Gotthard.  I do remember giving their first album a try.  I dug it, but not quite enough to go back to it.

Stealing song names from King Company??
