Man, never heard these guys before, DAYUMMM!

Some good stuff, can't find them on Tidal, but Discogs has their Crawdaddy Express on vinyl...sweet.
some of their songs from that album got deleted off youtube. they're all pretty good. that's their best album IMO.

I dig that Paisley style/sound, thus why I earlier referenced Big Star/Bangles.

I will probably order some vinyl this weekend, and the Crawdaddy's will be one of them. 👍

I’m pretty sure I’ve posted this before.
Anyway not one of my first concerts but saw Judas Priest at the Concord Pavillion, 84-85 I’d guess.

When he sings now, I’m wondering if Halford is thinking “Why the hell did I sing so high”. I bet it’s hard to hit and hold some of those notes nowadays.

Lol, this popped up on YT, I've watched it a time or two. Facts.

Willie B - Spy the Lie...a great read. Then watch some Dateline on the tube and report back. Or, question your relatives, lol. Book will change the way you look at, and listen to people. I've listened to the audio book version hundreds of time while sitting in LA traffic...

Never been a fan of the Moody Blues, but damn this is an amazing performance. Apparently, their last, too. :( They went on top, for sure.

… I had never seen the Moody blues until sometime in the mid 90s… I was at the bar across the street from Warner Brothers in Burbank???…and a friend of mine… a chick bartender from another bar had a couple of tickets to their concert out in San Bernardino… I called my girlfriend …she was busy …so a girl I sort of knew was at the bar… the girl with the tickets hooked us up …we hopped in my black Jag and beat it to San Bernardino… An incredibly good show… And I wish I didn’t have a girlfriend at the time because the girl I went with was really beautiful…

Skid row was better?

Way better. My hippy (older) landlord went with us and when Skid Row finished their set he looked at me and said "That was the best show I've even seen". It's burned into my memory.

And then we sat and waited for about 2 hours for G&R to come on. Axel was having some drama.
Right after the "riot show" in St. Louis.

I gather Axel was major drama.

Kind of funny, now, but Slash was then and now the shit. 🤘🤘

Me and Mrs. Http404 saw them at Pacific Amphitheater on this tour. Opened for Guns & Roses and blew them away.

About 88 or 89? We were there too!

About 15-years ago we also saw Sebastian Bach play "Jesus" in Andrew Lloyd Weber's "Jesus Christ Superstar" at the La Mirada Theater. I thought he did great and added some pep to that show, but he was fired a few shows later.
