JOHN CORABI – Live ’94 (One Night In Nashville) (Album Review)

JOHN CORABI – Live ’94 (One Night In Nashville) (Album Review)

Today’s word of the day is “polarizing“.  Its definition: to break up into opposing factions or groupings. Now live albums, in general, can often be viewed as polarizing. I know of some music fans that generally have no use for them, while others will grab for a live album more often than not. Personally, I am a fan. For a geek like myself, a “well crafted” live record has the power to transport me into the venue…

CINDERELLA – Heartbreak Station Tour Detroit (April 7, 2017)

CINDERELLA – Heartbreak Station Tour Detroit (April 7, 2017)

There was a time when rock concerts were as visually stimulating as they were aurally, a time of exploding pyrotechnics, gravity defying guitarists and singers who sweated blood and soul all over the spotlit stage. In those days, one band reigned as the kings of showmanship and technically precise musicianship – Cinderella. Filmed during the legendary Heartbreak Station Tour of 1991, when the boys were at the very height of their powers, this live concert…

This 1992 Live Video of Pantera is the Greatest Thing You’ll See All Week

This 1992 Live Video of Pantera is the Greatest Thing You’ll See All Week

In a sea of poorly shot, horrible sounding phone videos uploaded to Youtube, it’s a breath of fresh air when you stumble upon something good. It’s even better when you stumble upon an amazing live video of a rising Pantera playing a theater in Hollywood in 1992. Uploaded by a user named Concert Matrix 3.0, the video (most likely filmed on VHS tape) was uploaded in 2013 and boasts in the description that it’s a…

DEF LEPPARD at Blossom Music Center (Concert Review)

DEF LEPPARD at Blossom Music Center (Concert Review)

It felt like 1987 at Blossom Music Center just outside of Cleveland. Def Leppard, Tesla and REO Speedwagon brought us back in time with a blast of ’80s hard and classic rock. Def Leppard hit the stage with “Let’s Go”, the opening track from their latest self-titled CD. This song’s main riff is too close to “Pour Some Sugar On Me” and overall too poppy for me. Luckily, they kicked it up a notch with “Animal”…
