One of Los Angeles' most representative bands squares off against one of Ireland's least representative groups in the latest round of the Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame.
Classic rock is about heavy hooks, power chords and tight harmonies. But it’s also about letting loose and enjoying the good times. And there’s no better time for that than Friday evening, when we pick up our paycheck, punch out of work and enjoy a couple days of much-needed rest and relaxation.
On Sept. 4, 1983, Phil Lynott gave his final performance with the band he created, the amazing Thin Lizzy. By the start of of the 1980s, things were exceptionally busy for the band. Leader Phil Lynott was married at the start of 1980; he released his debut solo album, 'Solo In Soho,' that spring; became a father that summer, and issued a new Lizzy album, 'Chinatown,' that fall.
One of the '70s’ most energetic and enduring double live albums was released 35 years ago, and from the start, fans knew what they were in store for: The cover photo pulls them out of their seats, over the barricades and face to face with the leather-covered crotch of an instrument-wielding rock star.
We are just a little over a month away from the debut release from the Black Star Riders. If the name doesn't immediately ring some bells, the group has some real weight in its ranks. The band is comprised of Ricky Warwick, Scott Gorham, Damon Johnson and Marco Mendoza, all of whom are also members of Thin Lizzy. The band is rounded out by Jimmy DeGrasso on drums.
Good news - Season 12 of ‘That Metal Show’ has been confirmed and several classic rockers have made the short list for guest spots over the eight new episodes. The guests dropping by the TMS studio throughout the season run the gamut from classic rockers to brand new members of some veteran acts, offering a balance of musical tastes.
