Wow, some impressive gear here! My rig is simple, but does the job. I'm primarily a metal/punk rhythm player anyway.

I think I have finally accepted that Bill won't be back. I can still hope mind you. Now I just want to hear what they come up with.
My problem wasn't even who played drums in itself (after all I...
Are you joking? Pantera were a platinum selling band, with a legion of clones, of course he was known!
Overrated guitarists? That's a tough one. Frankly, the likes of Devin Townsend and Chris...
First off the Ramones wrote some great songs on their early albums, and they were tight as fuck. Just watch footage of them at The Rainbow Theatre to see what I mean. They didn't thumb their nose at...
Nice. Iron Fist and Another Perfect day are hugely underrated IMO.
Yeah, I really want to read it!
Brilliant track. Loved his songs and riffs, and when he took the mike back in the G 'N' R days.
I like how he has conducted himself since he left too. Honest, but not really that bitter about the...
TURBONEGRO - Apocalypse Dudes
1 - Heaven And Hell
2 - Long Live Rock N Roll
3 - Mob Rules
4 - Holy Diver
5 - Rising
6 - Dehumanizer
7 - Last In Line
8 - Richie Blackmores Rainbow
9 - The Devil You Know
10 -Sacred Heart
UYI 1 is the more consistent overall, but the best songs on 2 are genuinely brilliant and match, and in some cases surpass, those on 1 - Pretty Tied Up, Locomotive, Civil War, Estranged, Shotgun...
Did McClaren write the music or play on the album? No. The fact is, the Pistols album is consistently great, and has aged far better than the other debut albums of the time, and Lydon, for all of his...
SLADE - Live At The BBC
TONY IOMMI - Obviously! The riffmaster general!
EDDIE VAN HALEN - Maybe there are more technicall gifted players, faster etc, but nobody as ever had that "lightning in a bottle" quality like Ed....
I found Cross Purposes a bit flat, I prefer Forbidden if I'm honest.
For me Eternal Idol is best, followed by Headless Cross and Tyr.
Hair metal is a stupid term, as is grunge.
I have no love for the Poisons, Tuffs, and Trixters of the world, but I love early Twisted Sister, Wasp, Ratt and some Motley Crue songs, as well as the...
Early Kiss, (especially up to Alive) was great straight up heavy rock n roll, and albums like Creatures Of The Night and Revenge are good too, so they do not deserve to be labelled "worst band ever"...
Alice In Chains. All of their original albums are great.
Nirvana were a decent band but were overrated, same goes for Pearl Jam IMO, and their later albums aren't spectacular.
Another band that came from the scene in Norway, although they aren't strictly black metal, that really impressed me were In the Woods...
Ah, black metal!
Love the 80's work of Venom, Bathory, Hellhammer, Celtic Frost, Sarcofago, Mercyful Fate, Tormentor, and the black thrash of early Bulldozer, Sodom, Possessed, Running Wild (84 -...
There are no filler tracks on Sad Wings, Stained Class or Sin After Sin for me personally, but even if that wasn't the case, the quality of their best material on those albums, and the likes of...
The man hasn't done a genuinely great sounding heavy album in donkeys years.
Frankly, for an album with a production worthy of what they have to offer, and with a producer that understands...
Frankly I prefer Priests 70's albums, but like Screaming For Vengeance, Defenders Of The Faith and Ram It Down (hugely underrated album) Painkiller is packed with great full on HM tracks. I do find...
That's exactly what he did with Metallica too. If you don't have the hunger and the creative urge, it cannot be replicated. Frankly, Rubin's work - as far as rock & metal go anyway, I know nothing...
Tal Wilkenfeld? Excellent bassist, and her passion and joy are clear in every performance. And she purrty. :grin: (she is 25 by the way)
1 - Jack Bruce
2 - Geezer Butler
3 - Geddy Lee
4 - John...
