I bought a cooking ware for a wedding gift and upon checkout amazon offered me the "one month Prime" trial, which means free 2-day shipping and other advantages. Needless to say, I've mainly bought a bunch of books so far haha:

Duff McKagan - It's so Easy: And other Lies
Glenn Hughes - The Autobiography
Paul Di'Anno - The Beast: Singing with Iron Maiden-The Drugs, the Groupies
Zakk Wylde - Bringing Metal to the Children: The Complete Berzerker's Guide to World Tour Domination
Rudy Sarzo - Off the Rails: Aboard the Crazy Train in the Blizzard of Ozz

Go ahead, shoot me for not reading the Di'Anno book yet!

Hey Paulussie, I was just thinking, that if you don't have any of Bruce Dickinson's solo releases you definitely NEED them. Tattooed Millionaire is the worst album from his catalog, but everything else is DAMN GOOD, if not GREAT.
Even though Bruce probably didn't sell as many albums as Maiden did when he left, he certainly released quality material. I still listen to everything he's released and hope he makes time to create a few more albums outside of Maiden.

I fully endorse this endorsement of Bruce Dickinson's solo albums. They are all pretty great, and Accident Of Birth and The Chemical Wedding (both featuring Adrian Smith) are outstanding. Tyranny Of Souls is also fantastic.

I'm with ya Dave! I hope he keeps up with the solo albums too! Totally worth checking out for anyone who hasn't already done so.

I find myself spinning SKUNKWORKS a lot. It's just so different from what you'd expect Dickenson to do right after leaving Maiden, but so diverse and so fucking great also. I honestly love all of them (except Tattooed Millionaire, which only has a few worthy tunes... other than those it's like bad classic rock)

Some new thingies:
Ufomammut - Oro: Opus Primum (addicting!)
OM - Advaitic Songs

I'm diggin' the new TESTAMENT. It's just classick Testament, nothing too different, nothing to far removed from what they usually do; but hell, they just do it so fuckin' great and heavy. Chuck Billy sounds amzing and Gene does beat the living shit out of those drums. I love the bonus cover songs. Just need to make time to watch the dvd.

I think it kicks ass, may be "a bit tamer" like AngelRat said but I wouldn't say it takes anything away from it. The evolved musicianship and addition of Gene 'Atomic Clock' Hoglan makes it well worth the listen. Can't wait to see them next month!!!

BTW the DVD is pretty cool too, there is a small 5 song show from earlier this year on it.

Hey John, of course not! I've been getting all this from the Northgate Silver Platter's in light of them taking in some guy's metal collection. They've been promoting it, so it's getting hit up pretty good, but totally worth a look if you have the time.

My Triumph collecting continues

TRIUMPH - Rock & Roll Machine
TRIUMPH - Progressions of Power
TRIUMPH - King Biscuit Flower Hour
TRIUMPH - Surveillance

OZZY OSBOURNE - God Bless Ozzy Osbourne (blu ray documentary) a friends of mine, who's not a metal head, saw this on tv last week and sent me an email telling me how good it was, so of course I bought it. It is damn good, especially the extras. But, like his autobiogrphy, I wish it was more complete and he discussed auditioning all the different players he's had come through the band and why he chose them. Of course maybe he just has no memory of it. There just seems to be a big chunk missing from this and his bio... but it was still damn good, and his son Jack was the one who made it.

I agree with you on both the documentary and the autobiography. But still Ozzy surprisingly seems to remember more stuff than Tony Iommi or at least he had the balls to dig a bit deeper. The Iommi biography is the epitome of superficial, at least when it comes to Sabbath. Personally, and I don't mean to be rude at all, I'm not that much interested in how many wives he had or how much time it took for him to be in good terms with his daughter. I know it is also part of his history, but I bought the book because I wanted to know more about the band, and all I learned that was not already discussed ad nauseam by the press was that the cough in the beginning of Sweet Leaf was his. Bah.

--------------------

"Forty-five moments of perfection translated through a cautionary escape into the perils of the mundane, the inherent entropy in ultimate order, and the potential threats of eternal, unchecked apathy in civilization; all cloaked in musical expression so thoughtful, creative and forward thinking that almost a quarter-century later, few can even comprehend it, much less match it." (autothrall)

I own the DVD and found it very good as well. I liked the idea of "throwing stuff" at Ozzy and having him ponder and reminisce, like having all the photos laid out in from of him, the old albums, showing him videos etc. He truly abhors the whole Ultimate Sin era, which is a shame considering it was Randy Castillo's first album and Jake E. Lee's last. Ozzy never mentions Jake, I think it's some weird thing to do with Rhoads that only Ozzy will carry around with him.

I would like to add I think his current band is crap, LOL, sorry, had to say it. The drummer is a showboating baffoon with all his high-sticking and whatnot (I guess to make up for his immense lack of musicianship), and he needs to get Zakk back. Knowing this fuckhead might be on the next Sabbath album has my blood boiling.

PS: I like the last Ozzy album, go figure HAHA.

I agree about Iommi's bio. It just scratches the surface and doesn't even dig into anything really. I did enjoy reading about all the jokes they used to play on each other. There's much better unauthorized books on Sabbath that tell you lots of great info on behind the scene goings on with first hand interviews from lots of members that have been through the Sabbath revolving door.
I'd really like to read about what Ozzy went through when auditioning new members, especially bringing in Bernie Torme right after Randy died, and then Gillis, then Jake, then Zak and all the shit that went on fucking over Daisley & Kerslake when they rerecorded the first 2 albums with Trujillo & Bodin. There's a plethora of stories that haven't really been touched on. I really thought there would be a lot more extras of interviews that they left out of the final cut, just like all the great extras that were included in Some Kind of Monster.

I've really enjoyed Ozzy's last few albums and have been listening to most of his entire catalog lately. He's had one hell of an amazing career, but he does owe a lot to those who wrote music and lyrics for him, and I gotta say, I'm sure he'd a dead a long time ago if it wasn't for Sharron. I don't like a lot of the shit I've heard about how she's treated other bands (Iron Maiden comes to mind) but she is one hell of a great manager for Ozzy... no denying that.
