On This Day In METAL History – September 27th…

Cliff Burton - Metal Hammer - cover photo - 25th anniversary issue -

Above: The late and infinitely great Cliff Burton, appearing on the 25th Anniversary Edition Of Metal Hammer.

__________________________________

01 – One of the saddest days in all of music history was on this day, back in 1986. Metallica Bassist, Cliff Burton, passed away at the very young age of 24, from injuries sustained during the band’s tour bus rolling over, on a rural stretch of road in Sweden. Cliff Burton had so much more life ahead of him. I am forever thankful that I was able to witness Cliff Burton perform, live onstage. God Bless Cliff Burton and his family.

02 – On a happier Metallica note, the band’s ninth studio album, Death Magnetic, was sitting at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, back on September 27th, 2008. I dig this Metallica album, only I wish it wasn’t so damn super polished. At least Metallica returned to what they were supposed to do in the first place and that’s to play Thrash.

03 – In Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, back on September 27th, 1943, a future legend of Hard Rock was born: Randy Bachman. Happy Rockin’ Birthday, Randy Bachman! No, Randy Bachman is not a Metal musician; only his contributions to pioneering Hard Rock makes him Metal to me. As a founding member of The Guess Who and Bachman-Turner Overdrive, (both Winnipeg bands), the Classic Hard Rock blueprints of Randy Bachman are what the roots of Heavy Music are all about.

Randy Bachman continues to perform to this day; his latest release on both CD and DVD is shown below:

 Randy Bachman – Vinyl Tap Tour: Every Song Tells A Story was released on August 25th, 2014.

Wanna See 7 Cassette Singles Of Mine? They’re Really Cool. Metallica, KIX, Queen, Aerosmith, Slaughter…

Posted in classic rock, classic rock bands, Hard Rock, hard rock bands, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , , on December 29, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Check ’em out above! Those are 7 cassette singles that I recently dug out of my collection. There’s KIX, Queen, Aerosmith, Slaughter, Metallica and Queensrÿche! Whoa! I have many more cassette singles; I’ll show and tell more of ’em in the future. Honestly, I will.

Before there was the compressed MP3 revolution, there were 45 rpm’s and eventually cassette singles. These (now) analog relics gave me and countless others, a quick fix for an inexpensive Rock ‘N Metal high, back in the day. My cassette collection has continued to survive over the decades and I’m thankful for that.

Regardless of the digital world we live in, I’ll still dig through my cassettes and listen to whatever catches my mood at the moment. I’ll always have a stash of cool cassettes put aside for listening to in my (2000) Ford Taurus and “combo” stereo in the house. Metal be thy name.

Here are what the back covers of these 7 cassette singles looks like:

Thanks a Metal ton for stopping by and looking! You ROCK for doing so! Whoa.

Stone Is Fed Up… And Here Are The Reasons Why…

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, news, politics, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , on October 28, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

MetalOdyssey

You know, I haven’t bitched here on Metal Odyssey in a very long time. Very long time. Well, brace yourselves, cause I’m ready to bitch! I’m fed up. Wanna know why? Below are the reasons why I’m fed up. Take a gander at my bitching and if you don’t want to bother, well then, I really don’t give 2 shits. Seriously, I don’t. Metal be thy name.

1. ALL United States politicians from the municipal level on up can kiss my ass. Why? Cause Republicans are NOW Democrats and Democrats are NOW Republicans. Unless you’re a Tea Party constituent, y’all can kiss my ass again.

2. Dee Snider –  Please, Dee Snider, shut the hell up already. You are NO LONGER funny, relevant, inspirational or badass. You are merely a whisper of “what once was” prior to your very annoying 1983 album: Stay Hungry. Go Away now, Dee. You’re yesterdays news. Hey Dee… two words for you… Broad Way. Here’s two more words for you Dee: You Liberal.

__________________________________________

3. Satellite Radio. Hey Satellite Radio… kiss my ass too! Y’all aren’t worth the drop of sweat off of a donkey’s asshole. I can lug around my CD catalog into my car and not have to give a shit about you corporate dumb dumbs; and save a TON of money in the process.

4. Apple. It seems like Apple is coming out with a NEW iPhone every two weeks now. Hey Apple… kiss my ass too! Hey Apple… how much of your BILLION dollars in profits have you given back to charity? Dumb asses, Apple.

5. Male erectile Enhancement Commercials. Give me a break. If I had a hard-on that lasted for more than 4 to 6 hours… I’m not calling any fucking doctor. If there are dudes out there that need this product, just pick up a copy of SWANK and you’ll save yourself a fortune. Plus, I’d wish these male erectile enhancement companies would STOP hiring all those geek corporate assholes to be acting like morons in your commercials. Dorks. Idiots.

__________________________________________

6. Metallica. Please, Metallica, go away! Lars Ulrich looks like he’s 85 years old and y’all can’t put out a studio album without it sounding like a Rick Rubin billion dollar produced piece of shit called Death Magnetic.

7. Robert Trujillo – Somebody should remind Robert Trujillo, that his Metallica legacy is he’s ONLY played on that one full-length studio piece of garbage… Death Magnetic as a replacement musician for Metallica. I’m NOT even gonna count that EP offering of Beyond Magnetic. Why bother? It was a good effort by Metallica, yet, still, go away Metallica. Um, Mr. Trujillo… you are light years away from being the bass legend that Cliff Burton was (and still is). Go back to Sharon Osbourne and ask her if you could re-record more bass tracks for her on the Ozzy Osbourne catalog, Robert Trujillo. Reminder: You are NOT a Metallica legend, Robert Trujillo. Jason Newsted can school YOU on bass playing any day of the fucking year. YOU KNOW IT TOO.

Cliff Burton - Kerrang! - 1988 - promo cover pic

Above: KERRANG! – April 30th, 1988, No. 185

On September 27th, 1986, Clifford Lee “Cliff” Burton passed away from injuries sustained in a bus accident, in Sweden, at the very young age of 24. It seems like yesterday, when I first heard the tragic news. I feel lucky, no, I feel blessed that I was able to see Cliff Burton perform live on stage, with Metallica, so many years ago.

There shall never be another bassist like Cliff Burton. I and my fellow Metal brethren shall celebrate the Metal accomplishments of Cliff Burton, today and every day. Life is to be cherished. Metal be thy name.
