    Posted By: MeanstreakJust discovered this guy the last half hour on YouTube. Incredible voice. Sounds like he is coming out of the sixties/seventies.



    He passed away in 2017 sadly. Helluva voice.

    I used to cover Black Crowes' great version of this, which was always one of my favourites to do live... The original has a fantastic vocal and on the higher, edgier notes it reminds me of Brian, especially from the Geordie era. I can imagine Brian singing it these days, would be awesome..

    @Alex Lebanon how about I help you out for once? I don't know much Thin Lizzy myself, but here's some stuff you might like -


    This last one isn't a rocker, but it's more of a soft rock kind of thing. Don't let that fool you, though, it's great shit and it has a hell of a guitar solo.

    Wow Charles Bradley R.I.P
    I am one of those who really missed him. I am so sorry i did. But the music will live on.

    Bradley is better suited for that song than Ozzy was, despite the fact that Ozzy did pretty good on it, too.

    Fantastic cover that brings a lot more feeling and desperation than the original.

    I love the ambience of this song and other songs on Renegade.

    Ah, hell, I have to throw this one in for the night too. It's too good to leave out. I love the double lead guitar. There's a lot of good music that was made during this era that hardly ever sees the light of day. This song gives me Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, and Nazareth vibes.

  10.  
    I have to add just one more, then I'll head to bed. This isn't a deep cut by any means, but listening to Orang-Utan got me thinking about Nazareth and one of my favorite songs of theirs is "Miss Misery". The lead singer, Dan McCafferty is very similar to Brian Johnson back in the day, isn't he? They both could saw a 2X4 in two with their voices alone.

    I actually quite like that track. STP are to Nirvana what Thunder are to AC/DC I suppose - roughly in the same genre but obviously nowhere near as good :)

    It's a very good track. I know your take on this already haha. To me, Nirvana as inventive they were at the time, were basically a provocative and rather tasteless (image wise and lyrics wise) punk band, with some good songs, while STP were more of a rock (n' roll) band, influenced by a wider range of styles and eras of music. Scott Weiland was a genius with regard to coming up with melodic hooks. Also, Soundgarden were a better band than Nirvana.

    Soundgarden are not as good as Nirvana but they are serious contenders I give you that - Badmotorfinger is a fucking monster of a record. STP are just second rate in comparison to both bands, a record company suit's idea of a grunge band, tame, boring, corporate, safe, unoriginal. Nirvana were not THAT original either of course - the quiet/loud thing had already been done and done really well by the Pixies - but KC just had an outstanding gift for fusing a killer pop hook with Sabbath/Melvins riffing -it was like he slammed two elements together and that shouldn't really have fitted/gelled but the result was explosive. Even the non-famous songs on Nevermind fucking rock.

    Only just found out Richard Ashcroft had an album out last year and it's been on all day - good stuff.

    Love Sledge Hammer and Rock is my life off Not Fragile, Bit of a DC vibe on the main Sledgehammer riff. Ace Albumn.
    I’m in an electronic mood today, spinning OMD’s first album on good old vinyl. Some great tracks on it like ‘Bunker Soldiers’. Yesterday I was spinning Red White and Slightly Blue by Marseille ( Art Attack’s Neil Buchanan’s Band). Some great punk/heavy rock music to be had. Do it The French way was the main single off that, great track.

    This show kicks major ass. Probably the best rock combo ever put together.
    The sound is fat and the drums.. well Steve Gorman is sooo much in the pocket here. Gives Bonzo a run for his money.

    Eddie doesn't get the recognition he deserves for his rhythm work, and this album is a corker where thats concerned.

    It's their best album IMHO - it doesn't have the gloss of the debut and it's all the better for it.

    Fools is an awesome track, love all the licks and bends Eddie does on that especially that run he does behind Dave when he sings, “I listen to too much rock n roll”. Loads more great parts but I particularly love that one.
    Have a look on you tube for the guitar track only of “Hang em High” off Diver Down, the interplay between his rhythm playing and thrown in licks are amazing as is that first solo at the beginning of it.

    After 25 weeks on the charts, the song hits #1 on the Mainstream Rock chart, and the band finally decides to release a video for it today:

    Released today. Fucking killer:

    My pick from Richard Ashcroft's new album - under the MOR sheen his wild-eyed, questing spirit is in rude health...

    Good lad, Alex! I love WARP, just so full of amazing stuff. I have stacks of Luke Vibert, he's literally in my top 3 of musical artists of all time!

    Double D, I hope you like the new Rival Sons album. I think it's going to be a good one. Best rock singer out there right now.

    Look Away sounds very, very U2. Not necessarily a bad thing but not what I was expecting.

    I was a bit ...shocked... hearing this title track from the new upcoming album of Tesla, a band I love. It's produced by Phil Collen and they spoke about Mutt Lange tricks in the production mix. The band probably felt creatively stuck in their more traditional sound and wanted to blend in modern production values. I can picture it being good live.
