Yes, and with shameful lyrics like( how do you know when it’s love) their legacy could have done without …Arena rock singers in the mid 80s were all terrible and corny. DLR was the right kind of clown to make it entertaining. Hagar was the worst choice though. He sounds like a shaving cream commercial.
My vote is for Dio.
I see you are in Hamilton, were you part of their early Punk scene?
I think there's a good documentary aboot that.
After VH1, I bailed on Rock music and went into Punk, New Wave, etc.
(lower octave) tweedly tweedly bend, hammer on
More tweedly tweedly
Smile like it’s easy… well.. it sorta’ is?
Grumpy for all the “real players” with actual songs and soul who worked and worked for scraps while VH tweedled to success
I'm just a few miles from you, Hamilton's steel roots means it will always have that punk element to me, great city.i was living about 30 miles away from here at the time, and was a bit young, so i missed the good stuff. I saw teenage head, and then the newly solo kim mitchell at a nearby high school around that time, but i was 11 years old in 1980, so, you know lol.
Its still a very punk city though
and we dont say "aboot" here lol
You want fun? Grampa Jones was fun. Ethel Merman was fun. Roy Clark was fun. Jim Carrey was fun.They'd need to be fun. That's the missing ingredient in most of the suggestions IMHO, and why cherone didn't work. A core element in that band was child-like, devious, sometimes-sentimental fun.
