HELIX – Canadian Hard Rock & Heavy Metal Legends Are: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!
HELIX – It was sometime back around 1983, when I first heard the legendary HELIX on FM radio. I can’t remember which Hartford, Connecticut station that broadcasted (the very cool) show: Metal Shop. This was a pump-you-up block of time devoted to Heavy Metal and back in ’83 it was one of the best gigs in town. I was born and raised in a remote section of Connecticut, therefore, getting my kicks from Metal Shop (back then) was a natural high that money couldn’t buy.
The first two HELIX songs that I heard on Metal Shop were: Heavy Metal Love and White Lace And Black Leather. Whoa! I knew instantly, upon getting psyched-out-of-my-mind by these two HELIX songs, that a trip to Strawberries Records & Tapes was mandatory. I had to pick up some HELIX. On vinyl. Old School, baby. Back in the day, I rung that HELIX bell and told all that bubble gum shit: go to hell!
My very first HELIX album:
HELIX – NO REST FOR THE WICKED (1983)
It’s now decades later and Strawberries Records & Tapes no longer exists and HELIX does. Thank God. I escaped the extremely expensive Connecticut and now live in Ohio, via Allentown, Pennsylvania. I’m still a Helixaholic and on this Wednesday, May 8th, 2013, I shall declare:
HELIX IS STONE’S METAL PICK OF THE DAY!
