  1. Really dig your format here! Great for old flashback soon to be 50 years old(in 2 years time) Geezers like me! Great work!

    • Thank you for the kind METAL words! I am psyched that you enjoy these posts! Yes, you sure did grow up during those “Golden Years” of Hard Rock & METAL.

      I strive to revisit the roots of METAL on a consistent basis; hopefully many younger music enthusiasts will discover a (classic) band, album or song that is posted up here and see what real Heavy Rock & Roll was (and still is) about!

      YOU ROCK 🙂 \m/\m/
