DEF LEPPARD POISON TESLA in Atlanta (Concert Review)

DEF LEPPARD POISON TESLA in Atlanta (Concert Review)

5/3/17 – Lakewood Amphitheater  – Atlanta, Ga. Great concert co-headline packages are all the rage these days with two or three mega bands sharing a bill. In a world where all the 80’s bands we love are struggling to make a living from album sales, more and more bands are forced to earn their living playing live. This is a good and bad thing in my opinion. On the one hand, you get to see your…

TESLA – Mechanical Resonance Live (Album Review)

TESLA – Mechanical Resonance Live (Album Review)

It’s hard to believe it was 30 years ago that Tesla exploded onto the scene with Mechanical Resonance. They stood out from the hair metal bands of the time by keeping their focus on their music and not on their image. The result was solid bluesy hard rock and work ethic that they honed from their favorite bands from the 70’s. They’re still going strong with some of their best music coming in the 2000’s….

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”…

WHITFORD/ST. HOLMES – Reunion (CD Review)

WHITFORD/ST. HOLMES – Reunion (CD Review)

In 1981, Brad Whitford and Derek St. Holmes released Whitford/St. Holmes. At the time, they weren’t with Aerosmith and Ted Nugent, respectively. It was a solid rock CD that has become a cult classic. Now, they’re back with a new CD, Reunion. My main interest in this CD is Brad Whitford. He may be the most underrated guitarist of all time. If you don’t know, he’s responsible for some of the best Aerosmith songs, including “Last Child,” “Nobody’s Fault,”…

25 Albums Turning 25 That Don’t Suck

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…
