I hear ya. :yes:
My wife cringed when I told her I'm gonna try and go to Nickelback.
I would too. Cringe that is.
Metellica used to be my favorite band but since the Black album... they've sucked.
Yes, Typo is my favorite band... especially cause they continue to make great albums.
Great albums and Type O do not belong in the same sentence.
The only "bad" albums Metallica have released are Reload and St. Anger.
Damn you fail so hard.
Type O has 7 albums and all for them are worth buying.
Metallica hasn't made an album wroth buying in over a decade.
Listen... I get it. Type O will never sell as many albums as Metallica or sell out arenas like Metallica but that doesn't impress me.
BOTTOM LINE... Metallica has lost it!
Obviously you haven't been to a Metallica show lately.
Althought I would never spend a cent on anything they every produced, I have downloaded 3 Type O albums, and they are a mish mash of good and bad. IMO October Rust and Bloody Kisses are the only 2 albums they have put out that are mildly good.
My first time seeing Metallica was in 82. They opened for Raven and blew them away. I've probably seen them about 15-20 times. Last time was at Lalopalooza 97 in support of Load. It was good but weak compared to who they used to be.
The ONLY way I'd see Metallica again is if they did a past tour of KEA, RTL, MOP, or JFA... Kind of like what Maiden did a few years ago with Powerslave.
I've seen Type O about 30 times and will continue... cause they haven't forgot who they are.
Like I said, obviously you haven't seen them lately. They have been KILLING IT on this current tour. I've seen 'em 10 times and the most recent tour was AMAZING.
Last time I saw them was with Guns N Roses and Body Count.
I worked that tour for a few shows. But it was Metallica, GNR, and Faith No More.
Long live the WHO!!!
Best Guitarists (in no particular order)
Kenny Hickey of Type O Negative and Seventh Void
Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath
Billy Duffy of The Cult
Zakk Wylde of Black Label Society
For those who are fans of old school goth such as "The Cult," "Sisters of Mercy," "Mission UK," etc. give this a listen.
This is my friend's band from Baltimore and they are going to tour UK in Fall!!
I'd add Michael Schenker, Angus Young, Tom Novello and Eddie Van Halen.
I'm going to see Judas Priest & Whitesnake, tonite. :rockout:
Has it really been 30 yrs. since British Steel was released?
Dude, Priest are amazing live right now. Have fun, post review!
I'm probably the only person on in this country looking forward to it, but Creed's new album Full Circle comes out on October 20th.
Now that you've told me this,I'll be looking to hear something from it. :yes:
I've seen them twice and have all of their stuff. I liked them.
They're on tour right now with Staind.
I'll post what I remember! :icon_rofl:
Thanks but I wanted to just pick 5. But I agree... Michael Schenker is on my Top 10 list!
He's probably #1 on my list, if I had to rank them.
New Whitesnake sounds great. I hated the crappy hair band they had in the 80's. Now they've gone back to their 70's sound that that is the Whitesnake I know and love!!!
Best Singers and Song Writers (in no particular order)
Peter Steele of Type O Negative and Carnivore
Ian Astbury of The Cult, Death Cult, Southern Death Cult
Ronnie Van Vant of Lynyrd Skynyrd
Christopher Hall of The Dreaming and Stabbing Westward
Lane Stanley of Alice In Chains
Just got home from seeing Judas Priest. They're still the Metal Gods! :rockout:
Sat in the 2nd. row. (Thank's to my friend Steve !)
His name is Layne Staley B4L.
LVBF, you absolutely MUST go see Steel Panther IMMEDIATELY! Trust me.
Their the 80's hair cover band, right? Used to be called something else?
