Saw a lot of bands in the 80's, but Plant we somehow missed and wish we hadn't. Him and SRV.

This week, Journey's Greatest Hits has reached the vaunted status of being only the third album to spend 500 weeks on the Billboard 200 in the chart's 61-year history!

#1: Pink Floyd: Dark Side of the Moon (937 weeks)
#2: The Best of Bob Marley (510 weeks)
#3: THE BEST OF JOURNEY! (500 weeks)

... btw, you can replace the bass player with an American Idol judge, but YOU CAN'T REPLACE STEVE PEERY!

35 YEARS AGO TODAY Thin Lizzy released what became their final studio album!

New member John Sykes guitar blazes throughout and makes it known that Lizzy were as contemporary as the new breed of hard rockers roaming around at the time.

https://youtu.be/g39YnOw0NeQ

By year's end, Phil pulled the plug on the band and left heartbroken fans begging them to stay. Within three years, the substance issues Lynott had been fighting would catch up with him and claim his life.

After Phil's death in 1986, the band broke up and John Sykes (blonde) went on to write, produce, and perform all lead guitars on Whitesnakes most successful album in 1987 that contained the famous tune "Still of the night". After trying to kick David Coverdale out of his own group for taking credit for his music, he went on to form his own band Blue Murder.

btw, love how Phil apologizes to his mother for saying a curse word, lol

35 YEARS AGO TODAY heavy metal got its first #1 album!

Founded by Randy Rhoads 2 albums earlier, then leaving to Ozzy Osbourne and rock immortality, Quiet Riot hit the top of the music world with their 3rd release today in 1983 and was helped in no small part by the band's heavy exposure on MTV in which the television network launched their album into the stratosphere (Over 6 million copies sold!)

We saw Thin Lizzy in Sept. 1978 at the Aragon Ballroom....they were still on the Bad Reputation tour. Great set by those guys, but there was one problem....They followed The Dictators (very good but not well received by the mostly stoner/metal crowd), who were the opening act, and AC/DC, who were on the Powerage tour. Angus and the boys blew. the. roof. off. that old joint. T-L must have known they had just been upstaged...

I am thirty-eight years old. So, my likes may vary from many others.

My favorite genre of music is modern hard rock. Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, Disturbed, Skillet, Staind, Three Days Grace, My Darkest Days, Stone Sour, and the like. I don't know if I could pick any one favorite.

That said, I love ALL music, period. I played trumpet for ten years in school. And, nowadays, I love to sing karaoke. One night, a number of years ago, I sang a Frank Sinatra song (we know who he is/was), Elvis Presley (same), ZZ Top (classic rock), Kid Rock (newer rock), Nelly (rap), Alabama (country), Brian Setzer Orchestra (jazz/swing) and others. When I went to leave, the guy that did the karaoke stopped me on my way out the door to shake my hand. He said he was impressed that one guy would sing so many different genre's of music, and do them all well. I know quite a few people that sing only one genre of music (all country, oldies, whatever. But, that is just my personal taste in music. If a person could read, on a given week, my history folder on YouTube, one would think I was beyond bipolar. But, that's just me.

35 YEARS AGO TODAY, not only this tune, but the whole concert was professionally recorded live and it's still not legally available except in crappy bootleg form and is now the crown jewel of many fans' video collections!

The Red Rocker and a Trans Am on stage was hard to beat in 1983. The following year, he couldn't drive 55.

35 YEARS AGO TODAY, ZZ Top took it to another level with the release of their Eliminator album.

With hits like "Gimme All Your Lovin", "Sharp Dressed Man", "Legs", "Got Me Under Pressure", and "TV Dinners" they made the band worldwide stars. The videos that were made for the new TV network MTV sealed the deal. With over 10 million records sold, it is their most successful album.
