Dio - Holy Diver


I haven't heard Holy Diver since my band played it almost 20 years ago. I can still remember the bass line. Cool

I still think the 2 Sabbath albums he sang on were some of their best work. Still love Children of the Sea. "In the misty morning....at the edge of time..." Classic. Who still writes cheezy lines like that these days?
Air "How does it make you feel"

p.s. I ended up partying with Dio once back in the mid 90's. Short and puny, but what vocal cords. Too bad all his music sounds the same - I told him just that, so he knows. I think Ritchie Blackmore exploited Dio's talent best. My band played lots of Sabbath covers too, but no Dio material, Ozzy and Gillan only.
Grun,

I don't think we will ever see another character like Dio in his heyday..... A 5 foot tall Italian guy, singing heavy metal in skin tight spandex, with a huge perm and the classic unbelievably hairy chest. He was a thing of beauty. Big Grin Sorry... IS a thing of beauty. I'm sure he's working in a Walmart somewhere. Wink

Tbird,

I stand corrected. Big Grin

Rudy Sarzo.

Beautiful. Does he still do the hand over the top of the neck technique on bass? I always thought that was so flaming. Wasn't Billy Sheehan available? Big Grin

I should talk though, I already saw Priest and Queensryche this summer. Cool

He should be now. I saw him backing up Steve Vai in April on what was reportedly the final show of his tour. That show was quite a wankfest, in the most positive sense of the word.
Cool

Since there is no month on this thread, I guess that means this will go on forever?

Well, it will be interesting to compare what people listen to 10 years from now vs. today. Smile

There will be no reunion for me I'm affraid - bald and fat is not the way of rock. Big Grin
Today on my iPod:

The Ramones
The Safes
Ray Charles
Marvin Gaye
Puccini's Tosca
The Grouch
Public Enemy
Mendelssohn
Slipknot
Split Enz
I have tried to stay away from this thread. I can not stand it any longer. So, now to show my age (at least I'm not bald, yet!)...

Little Feat, 'I've Been Down...', on http://www.radiomargaritaville.com (and now Sirius, also).

While I am a 'Parrot Head,' I couldn't listen to this all day, every day. But, I have to play something mellow for the customers in my store. The only problem is when they play songs like, 'Why Don't We Get Drunk and Screw.' Eek

To wank, means to masturbate, usually a male, hence the term, wanker.

A wankfest (although not in my dictionary), is what I assume to be a festival where wankers wank.

How could this not be a positive experience?
Don Williams' Greatest Hits (Amanda).

One of my grandson's is watching The Fightin' Texas Aggie Band 2003 video in another room.
Live music & conversation with Robert Plant, featured guest on "The World Cafe".

The man continues to be on a creative roll.

That guy can't sing to save his live. Brutal. Big Grin
Oh, come on. Give him a break, English is his second language. Big Grin And I think Russian is his "second" language too.

You wanna hear the guy who can't sing? Big Grin Give me a sec, I'll pull one out for ya. It's got goats too. Wink

As an Eastern-European, I can say that they are never, ever, going to be cool. Ever.

Nice link, grun. LOL

Atmosphere - Sevens Travels

Great frikin album.


Before that was the first Audioslave, NIN, and old Soundgarden. Nothing to say days



Hey Grun, you have to be an Ian Curtis fan right ?
Welcome CabLab! tasty GD show, that "One from the Vault" is my favorite "official" release.

I've been spinning the Dead 1-10-79 Nassau Coliseum (amazing 2nd set) and King Crimson Live '84 Montreal.
