Slade - Cum On Feel The Noize & More

Thanks to Tom for bringing Slade up tonight.

For those of you who didn't know that Quiet Riot's biggest hit is a cover. I didn't, for a long, long time. Now you know too!

And more Slade:

And even more Slade:

That last one might be their best song, in my mind . . . and it's one of their much later songs. I remember I'd hear it occasionally on the radio. Then one day I came in to work after hearing it, mentioned it to my friend Jimi O., and he said, "Yeah, Slade! Alright!" and then I was off to collect Slade tracks.

I Attack The Darkness!

I'm off to see The Darkness tonight in NYC.

Unfortunately, I only own two shirts that are remotely metal:

- An Aerosmith t-shirt that's way too small (it's from High School, pre-final growth spurt and pre-weight training.)



Trogdor wins, man, Trogdor wins.

Wreckless Eric live on WFMU

On Saturday night, a friend of mine and I went to see Wreckless Eric, best known for Whole Wide World.

You can hear the whole set here:

Prove It All Night! with Pat Byrne: Playlist from October 17, 2015

I just love how Wreckless Eric now looks like Bricktop's nicer, younger brother.

And Wreckless Eric might not save rock and roll, but he's giving it a real go.

The Darkness - Barbarian

The entire new album from The Darkness just rocks. This is the first track, and it just gets funnier the more often I see it.

I can't get past "shirtless in the rain" without either singing along or just rolling it back to see again. If I get past that . . . writing out the lyrics AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA is just awesome.

I'll see these guys on 10/27. Hurrah!
