I certainly don't see a "problem"... of course that coming from a guy that gets the shakes if he doen't buy something with music on it every 5.375 days

Not even sure I can describe what it is that keeps drawing me in, but appreciating the effect. Must be Satan!

I just don't know what it is about Ghost.... It sounds weak and it looks stupid. Not my cup of tea.

I'm with Mr. DBC on this ... never been into bands whose image is so important... usually I consider it just an attempt to make up some musical shortcomings .... but thats' just me (and DBC ) ... their music didn't do anything for me.

Picked up 3 used cds at FYE, because at 30% off if you buy 3 I couldn't not get them.

The Showdown - Blood In The Gears (the only other used disc I could find for the discount that I thought might be promising)

Exodus - Let There Be Blood (I've wanted this since it came out but for some dumb reason I was too cheap to pay full price for it... well, the waiting paid off)

Nevermore - The Obsidian Conspiracy (same explanation as above)

I kinda felt that sort of cool when (Igor was it?) told us of the comments he heard about our Confessor shirts at Wacken when we walked back from town

Purchased an album by fellow VVF member Nate Carlsons band today. Found it when reading an EOLB review.
Witch Mountain: Wing of the lord

I dig it!

Nothing lame about Skid Row IMO, Slave to the Grind is a fucking brilliant album, although the first one is kinda shitty (except for a couple songs). Flame On!!!

I love the SKID ROW albums, except for that debut piece of hair metal shit, they totally kick ass. Quicksand Jesus, Monkey Business, and lots of other killer tunes on the 2nd & 3rd album, not to mention a decent cover song EP with Halford guesting... what's not to like.
Mez, there's lots of other bands you like that you should be embarrassed by

Right. Forgot to mention the album title. That's a link to a song from South of Salem.

I remember when the 2nd Skid Row came out and I was wondering why they stole that name from Gary Moore's old band and how the hell were they going to get away with using it... and justify it.

I guess they did, huh?

Just one CD...

- Creedence Clearwater Revival: s/t [40th anniversary edition]

I dunno, all the cool kids seem to like these guys, so I figure, why not.

They payed for it

quote:
In 1987 Moore sold the name 'Skid Row' to the American heavy metal band for $35,000. Sebastian Bach: "When (Skid Row) got signed to Atlantic, Gary Moore heard about it and said we could have the name for $35,000 U.S. dollars. 'We have to pay Gary Moore 35 grand to use the name,' and so we, as a band, did buy the name from Gary Moore. We were all glad to do it because it is a great name for a band. I remember saying, 'Wow, that's a lot of $, but we gotta do it!'"[10] Shiels has said that he has always been unhappy at the group 'stealing their name', and said of their manager Doc Magee, "he could be Doc Marten for all I know...but he's going to get a kick up the arse".[3] He still occasionally performs as 'Brush Shiels' Skid Row', as recently as February 2005. Bridgeman went on to perform studio work with Clannad, The Waterboys and Altan.

If memory serves me correctly Moore was paid approximately $30K for the name.

And you guys are wrong, the first Skid Row album is the best. How is it possible not to love a classic like 'EIGHTEEN & LIFE'????

IT'S VERY VERY POSSIBLE. I've been hating that song sing my ears were first subjected to it. More cheese in that song than what's stored in the Kraft Factory.

Thanks for clearing up the controversy DBC. #35 thousand was a small price to pay considering how much $$$ they ended up making on the lame shit that sold millions on the first album.
