    Never liked Crue that much, until they hired that Corabi dude.



    The Corabi record is the only Crue album I laid down cash money for. They should have done a second record with him, but the record company got cold feet.

    Hagar, with Schon circa 1983-84. GREAT album I really recommend.

    Gotta say. I just love this thread. I’ve grown musically the last 30 years, I believe. But this stuff is why I picked up a guitar.

    Steve Clark is a criminally underrated guitarist. His arena riffs are 100% his own. Steve Lynch from Autograph is also an incredible player with stellar chops and tone.

    I played a lot of Hair Metal.
    I even made the trip to LA.
    Hung out for awhile ...
    It was a brutal scene.

    Went back to Florida for the emerging Metal Scene...
    Had better luck and actually made money.
    I had two Peavey Butcher Stacks, and a Gibby Explorer.
    God....Good Times.
    Till the Dark Side crept in and got a hold of everybody.

    I maintain, and nobody will ever convince me otherwise, that barring throwback/retro acts, the hair metal era was as close as we’ve gotten to real rock and roll since the original 50’s stuff, and may be as close as we ever get again.

    50’s rock and roll was all about fast cars, partying, girls, sex, booze, and good times. The artists were all about crazy hairstyles, and seeing who could be the loudest, the fastest, the wildest, the most flamboyantly dressed, and who could drive parents and elders the furthest up the wall. There was nothing about it that was deep or meaningful, it was just the straight up embodiment of pure fun and youthful exuberance. They also loved a good love ballad. The hair bands captured it perfectly. It hasn’t been done since.

    Grunge and 90's alternative created the "anti-rock star" and hip hop artists quickly became the new rock stars in the 2000's.

    Loudness is still out there gettin' it. A friend's band opened for them a couple of years ago.

    EZO was killer too, shame they didn't last as long.

    Talas was the first time I ever heard a bass player do as much as a guitar player. I mean, I always knew the bass was there as a foundation between guitar and drums and wasn't supposed to be flashy, but Billy just blew over all that nonsense. He still nailed the bottom down, but daaaaaaaaaaaang...
