Hello Oasis, Goodbye Ramones, and Welcome Back Van Halen (Sorta) – 1996 Year in Review Pt2 Ep306

We’re back this week to tackle July through December for our 1996 Year in Review Pt2. July sees Layne Staley taking the stage for the last time. The Alice in Chains vocalist would overdose after a show in Kansas City, MO and never perform live again. Also in July, the Spice Girls hit big while scientists clone the first sheep. We’re not saying there’s a connection. We also aren’t saying there isn’t one. We discuss…

The 2017 SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL – Day Four Recap (Feature/Festival Review)

The 2017 SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL – Day Four Recap (Feature/Festival Review)

Saturday, June 10, 2017 – Sweden Rock Festival 2017 – Day #4 Not being as young and spry as we used to be, we arose a bit later on Saturday, June 10, 2017, the final day of Sweden Rock. No one seemed overly interested in hotel breakfast (although massive amounts of coffee were put away). Slowly dragging our asses out of the room and to the car, you’d think we were all a hundred years…

THUNDER – Rip It Up (Album Review)

THUNDER – Rip It Up (Album Review)

This review is a big deal for me. I’ve been a Thunder fan since their first album, Backstreet Symphony. I’ve followed them over the years through all the ups and downs they have had. It was a bucket list goal of mine to go see them in the UK for years. When they called it quits (the second time) in 2009, I was convinced I would never see Thunder live or get to hear any…

THUNDER – Rip It Up (February 10, 2017)

UK rock legends Thunder are pleased to announce the release of their new album on February 10, 2017. Entitled Rip It Up, this is what the guys had to say about it: “Yes people, we’re extremely chuffed to announce that our new studio album is finished, and it is AMAZING! We can say this of course because we’ve heard it, so you’ll have to trust us. It was recorded in 3 sessions (March, June, and August) and it’s…

Thunder – Backstreet Symphony (Retro Album Review)

Thunder – Backstreet Symphony (Retro Album Review)

Every once in a while, you come across a band that you want the world to know about. I came across one of those bands in 1990 when I was in high school. I first saw the video for “Dirty Love” from Thunder on MTV  (remember when MTV showed videos?). It made me run right out and buy Backstreet Symphony on cassette (I didn’t have a CD player yet). It blew me away. Other than “Dirty Love” and “Love Walked In,” Thunder didn’t…

Thunder Wonder Days: A Review

Thunder Wonder Days: A Review

When most people in the United States think of great blues based hard rock music I doubt many people think of the band Thunder. What a shame this is because their latest release, Wonder Days,  really shows that they can deliver great music after 25 years. Formed in 1989, Thunder achieved some airplay and video rotation on MTV with their 1990 single “Dirty Love”, but after that they, like most other hard rock bands of the…
