Top Five Rock Poets

Top Five Rock Poets

25 Albums Turning 25 That Don’t Suck

1990.  For music it was year that in many ways was Lost in Limbo (Thanks Ace.)  Genre’s of rock were peaking, ending and just starting.  And no one knew.  It would be the pinnacle of Thrash metal, the roots of Grunge were starting to sprout and the good times for bands of the Hair Metal genre were concluding.  In a little over a year bands like Winger and Warrant would trade major success to be…

Is It Time For AC/DC To Flick Off The Switch?
