    In Response to Re: 80's music, what did you like and not like? : You hit it out of the park with the Smithereens. The band could play, especially live. Which leads me to your next thread.

    I actually saw them live in '07 at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills, CA with about 250 people.  Pat was big as a house, but his voice still sounded good, and the band rocked hard through at least 20 straight songs.  Again, when they played that "B&R" bass line at the end, the crowd went berserk.

    In Response to Re: 80's music, what did you like and not like? : It was 3 actually, Greg...Burn, Stormbringer, and Come Taste the Band, on which Tommy Bolin replaced Blackmore.
    Posted by Hfxsoxnut


    This is correct except that Tommy Bolin TOOK OVER guitar duties in Deep Purple for Ritchie Blackmore.

    No one could ever replace Ritchie Blackmore. If Heavy Metal guitar music was a religion ( and some think it is, including me), Blackmore is it's high priest, Bolin would only be an alter boy.

    I mean , who doesn't instantly know the riffs from Smoke on the Water, Burn and Woman From Tokyo? How many Tommy Bolin riffs are legendary? He is best known for dying of an overdose.

    Bolin didn't create any riffs like Blackmore did, that's for sure, but methinks you were a wee bit harsh on him there.  I own a bunch of his stuff and I think he was a fantastic guitarist in his own right.  Like many great musicians he got stupid with drugs and died young.

    Oh, God yes!, Bolin was talented, no doubt.

    His solo stuff is very good. But I also think Lindsey Buckingham is a great talent and so is Bob Welch. But neither could hold a candle to the original Fleetwood Mac guitarist, Peter Green.

    I own "Come Taste the Band" and I used to have it on vinyl, too. Frankly it is the least played of all the Deep Purple CD's in my collection....and I own a ton of them, live shows, bootlegs, rarities , etc.

    All I am trying to say is Black Sabbath went forward without Ozzie...but Deep Purple pretty much was finished without Blackmore. As miserable and cranky of a person as he may have been , Rainbow went on to bigger and better things...while Deep Purple packed it in until the return of the MKII lineup of Paice, Glover, Lord , Gillan and Blackmore. Nothing against Coverdale and Hughes , they added a new direction , but Blackmore's Rainbow along with the Scorpions were my favorite hard rock acts of the '80's....until Deep Purple reformed with it's best lineup.Possibly the highlight of the entire 80's decade. At least for me.

    Everybody has pretty much hit my favorites. I felt the spirit of the rules meant bands that were formed in the '80s and not simply were around, which eliminates Springsteen, Boston, Clash, etc. I'll add 10,000 Maniacs. Oh, to Newman (Newman!) ... if you like Susanna Hoffs, you'll like this: http://www.fark.com/vidplayer/5934271

    I must admit that the track "Lady Luck" from the Tommy Bolin DP album is amazing and one of my favorites.

    I'm actually kind of neutral on Huey Lewis and the News. Their original stuff wasn't great, but some of their covers were superb. Didn't they cover a Franky Lymon song?

    Kind of surprised not to have seen either Pretenders or B-52s on either of anyone's lists yet.

    Both get thumbs-up from me (although for different reasons).

    Another good one jessey. I always liked Black Sabbath and have long thought that Paranoid was the greatest metal album ever. I didn't know Ian Gillian had ever sung with them.. Was Ozzie in rehab at the time? Seriously though, do you think Black Sabbath invented heavy metal? I mean I don't remember ever hearing the term before them, just hard rock.

    I met her after a show in 1984. She touched my forearm and said, "Hi, my name is Susanna." I said something like "HAQZZZPQN!QNPT!"

    Nope - I attach Heavy Metal to the loud RnR that was not derived from blues.

    I give you:

    Heltet Skelter

    So the Beatles invented heavy metal? That's an original thought.

    That's just my personal take on things. IMO, the Beatles influenced every genre since the day they hit the scene. They are still one of the major influences today; 40 years after they broke up.

    As for Helter Skelter, we had a thread on this but the song is pure beautiful noise.

    Your position on this agrees with a lot of the commentary I've read on metal.  It's a totally debatable point, but after giving this some thought I believe that some of Zeppelin should qualify as metal.  There aren't many heavier songs than When the Levee Breaks.

    Like
    The Cars (may go back to the 1970s but they peaked in the 1980s and I always think of them as an '80s band).

    Dire Straits (Ditto. First two albums came out in the 1970s, but hit strike/popularity and peaked in the 1980s).

    Def Leppard
    Bon Jovi
    Whitesnake/Guns 'N' Roses -- tie.

    Dislike
    Prince (I know some think he's a god, but I could never stand him.)
    Michael Jackson
    Madonna
    Culture Club
    Wham

    Lloyd,
    Totally HOWLING!!!
    I really enjoyed the Bangles, too.  To demonstrate how differently I saw them from the female POV, I viewed them primarily as a "band" and while I saw Hoffs as the hottest member of the band, I didn't single her out.   However, I do always like it when the hottest group member is a brunette.

    Oh, don't get me wrong, I loved their music, too. Their version of "Hazy Shade of Winter" is one of the great covers. And they rocked that night at that little dump called 119 Main in Blacksburg, Va. But I have to admit, I didn't take my eyes off Susanna all night.

    Agree with you on brunettes. Mrs. Dobler is one!
