    I in no way am trying to be a dick, but I just heard one of there songs from there newest album.....dude, they suck imo, they have always sucked. I never really understood why people liked them. No personal attack, just my person opinion about the band.

    I respect your right to express your opinion.

    Some people like chocolate and others like vanilla. But it is not nice to say that strawberry sucks.

    It really is OK to say nothing when you have nothing nice to say.

    I'm just shy of 40yrs old. I am slanted towards 80's metal hair bands. But I cut my teeth on Zep, then Kiss, VH, JP, IM, etc. I have not invested in music in many many years. Something about a mortgage and 3 kids that repriorotizes your money. I like a bunch of the new metal out there but only get exposed to it by the repetitious onslaught that is heard on your favorite FM station.

    Thanks. Been there and done that. This is the "Old School Metal" thread. Intended to discuss old school metal. I enjoy all kinds of music, but enjoy reminiscing and discussing with my fellow "Old School Metal" senior citizens on the boards as well.

    I like VH too. But only with David Lee Roth...not with Haggar (sp?). You left out AC/DC? What about Motly Crew's Shout at the Devil? This was the first album I bought with my own money that was "Heavy Metal", my mother alomst died when she saw the title. First Heavy Metal exp. was KISS. Damn I miss the old days..

    Well, I'm not a senior citizen yet, and neither are you Brian.

    But I dig the 80's hair bands. I can listen to that stuff all day, along with any hard metal.

    Just an opinion from a younger generation.

    The thing is they had such great technical guitarists back then, playing the classical and pentatonics in the harmonic minor scales. I loved the guitar wizardry that was so rampant back then during the solo's, some amazing players indeed. Glen Tipton and KK Downing were the guitarists for Judas priest, a bad ass duo for sure. Listen to the album Defenders of the Faith 1984, Rock Hard ride Free and The Sentinel Showcase thier dual solo skills.

    Not to mention likely one of THE MAJOR influences of the young metal players of today. The dual solo's were spectacular then and still are today. Sure, there maybe more 'talented individuals' but their complemntary style and techniques is unmatched.

    Yup, that is correct. I have pit tickets for me and my bro for Judas Priest and Queensryche concert on June 26! Cant wait, its going to be sweet. Im seeing King Diamond May 17th next week, then me and the bro are going to catch Def Leppard and Bryan Adams Jun 11th and then Priest and Queensryche Jun 26th! Then its going to be OzzFest 8/26.

    DLR left in 1985 and depending on who you believe he either quit or was fired(same bull**** story when Sammy left in 1996). DLR's ego was, and still is, out of control. Ed is a piece of work also, though it has only been the last 6 to 7 years that his self-destruction has really started to show. I was hoping that after last summers tour with Sammy that they would do a whole new CD, but both Sammy and bassist Michael Anthony have both recently done interviews saying they're done with the band, attributing to it to Eddie being an out of control drunk once again.

    Saw the shows in PHX and then Vegas. Also saw the last two of the tour both nights in Tucson, I'm sure your read the reviews. I was terribly embarrased for Ed and more so Wolfie. Mike and Sam are a class act and really kept it together inspite of Ed's epidsode. It goes without saying that I forsee no re-re-union of any sort with Sammy after Ed's breakdown.

    Yeah, I read about the meltdown during the last show. Sad, pathetic, whatever comes to mind. Well at least Anthony has hooked up with Sammy and Waborita's. Maybe Al can help Eddie get some control back in his life.

    Sir Fox---I am gonna have to disagree with you on the fact that the bands stated make bands today look like chump change. If you think that, then your not listening to the right bands. Your probably listening to all those **** metal bands they play on the radio. There are new bands every bit as talents as the bands stated. They are just not very popular. I agree with you though, if your saying popular metal today doesnt have as much talent, guys like eddie van halen make them look like ****.

    Now, about that already-infamous show, no one disputes the fact that Ed smashed two guitars, most notably the green Peavey 5150, that he played on so many dates this year, during the outro of Right Now. Many fans thought this an expression of rage, possibly directed toward Sammy and maybe Mike. Our sources tell us this was not the case. Not only did the IloveAllAccess representative inform the Five Star fans before the show that many pranks were planned by the band and the crew, such as the Great Silly String Assault, but she specifically forewarned "I'm not going to tell you, But I will Say Whatever You Do, DO NOT be in the Bathroom During RIGHT NOW." Our source does tell us that Ed was in fact very mad at someone backstage that night, but it wasn't Valerie, his girlfriend, his son, or anyone else in the VH camp so we do not think it appropriate to name them.
    So whether he smashed his guitar because he was mad is anybody's guess. Maybe he did it for fun, maybe he did it because he was drunk & thought it would be cool. Maybe it was because he was glad the tour was over. Maybe he was frustrated with Peavey or the guitar itself, but whatever the case, we are told that it was NOT an issue with Sam or Mike.

    We have 25 exclusive pix coming tomorrow that we will post in the order that we snapped them so you can take a look for yourself. Edward appeared pretty happy at the end of the show and rock history suggests that a smashed guitar is not necessarily the end of a carreer, starting with Hendrix and hopefully most recently including Van Halen. Beyond all of this, from our very close view of the stage, we are surprised how much attention this event is receiving. Smashing the guitars, while admittedly unusual in a VH show, did not stand out as either the high or low points of the concert. We were surprised when Ed did it because he did not seem angry before, during, or afterward. Ed just smashed 'em, for whatever reason rock stars smash guitars.

I agree with you though, if your saying popular metal today doesnt have as much talent, guys like eddie van halen make them look like ****.

    I think you have me mistaken with someone else, I never said that.

    I was only referring to the shear technical talent that bands of yester-year have over todays talent. Wasn't referring to the quality of music in anyway.

    Now, about that already-infamous show, no one disputes the fact that Ed smashed two guitars, most notably the green Peavey 5150, that he played on so many dates this year, during the outro of Right Now. Many fans thought this an expression of rage, possibly directed toward Sammy and maybe Mike. Our sources tell us this was not the case. Not only did the IloveAllAccess representative inform the Five Star fans before the show that many pranks were planned by the band and the crew, such as the Great Silly String Assault, but she specifically forewarned "I'm not going to tell you, But I will Say Whatever You Do, DO NOT be in the Bathroom During RIGHT NOW."

    This was a total coverup. Both Sam and Mike have inferred that this was directed towards them, and even Al has seemed uncomfortable when the subject has been brought up.
