On August 3rd, 1979 – The iconic AC/DC released their breakthrough studio album in the United States: Highway To Hell. Tragically, this would be the last studio album that the legendary (and late) Bon Scott would sing on. Robert John “Mutt” Lange was the producer for Highway To Hell. My favorite song on this album is: Touch Too Much. Oh, man, that song revs me up, like no tomorrow!
On August 3rd, 1986 – The mighty JUDAS PRIEST performed at the Toledo Sports Arena, in Toledo, Ohio, USA. Hail JUDAS PRIEST!
On August 3rd, 1987 – The great DEF LEPPARD released their fourth studio album: HYSTERIA. This album has sold 12 million (plus) copies in the United States. Sweet lord of mercy! Yes, this album features the hit single: Pour Some Sugar On Me.
On August 3rd, 2015 – FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH have their third studio album, American Capitalist, ranked at #29, on the iTunes Top 100 Heavy Metal Albums Chart. Great balls of fire!
On August 3rd, 1963, James Hetfield was born in California, USA. Happy Metal Birthday, James Hetfield! Freaking hell and yeah! James Hetfield is galaxy-famous as a co-founder of the magnificent METALLICA. This Metal legend is also the lead singer, rhythm guitarist, co-songwriter and lyricist for METALLICA. ‘Nuff said! Long live James Hetfield!
LONG LIVE METAL.
LONG LIVE THE ROOTS & FAMILY TREE OF METAL.
