Some Metal and Rock ‘N Roll Thoughts – Sunday, July 13th, 2014

RAMONES - Promo album pic!

Above: Front cover for debut album RAMONES, released in 1976 via Sire Records. L to R: Johnny Ramone, Tommy Ramone, Joey Ramone and Dee Dee Ramone.

______________________________

It’s an overcast and humid Sunday morning, here in Southwestern Ohio. There are thunderstorms forecasted for later today, due to the cold front coming in from the Northwest. Reports are that some of these storms may be severe. Whoa. Temperatures are to drop to the lower 70’s for this (early) coming week too. That’s early October in July!

On a somber note, everyone at Metal Odyssey expresses condolences to the family, friends and fans of the legendary Tommy Ramone. At only 65 years of age,  Tommy Ramone passed away on July 11th. He was the original drummer for the Ramones and also contributed as a producer and songwriter for the band. Tommy Ramone was the drummer on the first three Ramones studio albums. If there’s a Rock And Roll Heaven, I’m certain the Ramones are now touring up there and making some noise. God bless them all.

Queen - debut album promo pic - #9907

On this day in Rock History, the debut and self-titled album from Queen was released back in 1973. What more can be said? The rest truly is iconic Rock History. By the way, I was only seven years old then. Whoa!

Iced Earth - large classic logo - #5

Jon Schaffer, (legendary guitarist & founder of ICED EARTH), has recently undergone neck surgery. Below is Jon Schaffer’s latest update and good news on his situation, as posted on the ICED EARTH Facebook page:

Hello friends,

I’m writing to let you know that I made it through the surgery and am steadily on the road to recovery. The surgeon informed us that everything went smooth during the operation and that I should be back in action within a few months.

Thank you all very much for your support, you truly are the best fans any band could ask for.

Take care and best to you all,

Jon Schaffer

ZOMBIE DANDIES – S/T Demo EP Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Posted in glam metal, glam rock, Heavy Metal, metal music, music news, Punk rock, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on April 14, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

The Zombie Dandies - EP - promo cover pic

THE ZOMBIE DANDIES – Just when I thought I was the only dude left on Earth that used the word dandy, along came The Zombie Dandies. In a way, I feel semi-redeemed for still using that magical word as an adjective in my writings. Heck, (drummer & vocalist) Marty has the last name: Dandy. Whoa.

A Glam/Punk band from Normandy, France, the other half of The Zombie Dandies is K1000 Zombie (guitars & vocals). This duo has released a self-titled demo EP back in 2012 and it is a DIY, raw, retrospective… dandy. This demo EP reminds me of the tape trading daze, (oops, I meant days), when underground and/or rising bands were being touted by us hell rats and Metalheads, back in the pre-digital era.

Fans of (the very early) Mötley Crüe and Sunset Strip era should dig The Zombie Dandies, while those who love the low-end production of early Misfits may become gleeful at what they hear from this demo EP. If you can never get enough of Too Fast For Love and then reach for the Ramones, you are in for a FUN surprise with The Zombie Dandies. Metal be thy name. – Stone

The Zombie Dandies S/T Demo EP Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Give The Zombie Dandies A Listen Below! And… Get Your FREE Download Of This EP From The Zombie Dandies Bandcamp:
