WENDY O. WILLIAMS – PLASMATICS: “10 Years Of Revolutionary Rock & Roll” Picture Disc

Posted in Metal on April 6, 2021 by Metal Odyssey

I recently purchased this killer picture disc online to add to my Wendy O. Williams/Plasmatics collection. This 10 Years Of Revolutionary Rock & Roll gem set me back around $19 (US) which included shipping. Not too bad, considering the cost of new vinyl these days; especially collectible picture discs. The Plasmatics and the solo career of Wendy O. Williams were an integral chapter in Rock & Roll history. The late Wendy O. Williams pioneered a shock and awe presence for all future female Shock Rock/Extreme vocalists that would follow in her blazing, non-conformist path; albeit Wendy O. Williams can never be duplicated. She will eternally be The Queen Of Shock Rock.

Here are the 5 tracks on this picture disc: Butcher Baby, Master Plan, Goin’ Wild, F**k And Roll, A Pig Is A Pig

Wendy Orleans Williams was born on May 28th, 1949 and passed away from suicide on April 6th, 1998. She will never be forgotten by this Metal maniac. May Wendy Orleans Williams rest in peace.
