Not sure how this thread works but here's a song I've clicked repeat on a few times today :)


I've been subscribed to this German Couple's youtube channel where they do metal covers. They also bring in a variety of guest singer/musicians to switch it up on some songs; its hit or miss for me but they are really talented all around. I think this is a pretty awesome cover.

@AlpineAccess - you pretty much grasped the gist. Post something interesting, timely, historical, pointless. A story is completely optional but encouraged.

My wife grew up in Kirkwood, off 44 & 270 in STL. She refers to that area as "West County". Cool history man, I bet those tours were fun .... or maybe "fun" haha. Welcome.

Speaking of dad bands went to see Big Head Todd and the Monsters last night at the Mesa Theater here in GJ.

Question: How cool that was to be in a room with 800 people (that's sold out) for a band that routinely fills Red Rocks?

Answer: Very

What's even better was it almost got in under my $20 rule. That being years ago, back about 1990, my music circle has a standing rule that we wouldn't pay more than $10 to see a band. That rule was of course conditional because even then some bands would cost more but it had to meet a simple majority vote to break when choosing a night's club.

Keep in mind this was when even Son Volt or WIlco were $12 while Eric Clapton was $28 or U2 was $33 and Paul McCartney was $36 at Busch Stadium, so $10 really meant something. Like Mike Watt was $8.25 and The Band Later Named Foo Fighters was $8.

Later the rule had to be amended to $20 because of Ticket Bastard's fees even on day-of sales being imposed as they consumed ticketing at all the venues and of course inflation. But it's a rule I still try to hold to. If I have an evening and someone's playing in town should their ticket be under $20 I'll almost definitely take a risk.

I've almost never been let down by this rule. It seems that to keep a ticket price down the band usually punts on fancy theatrical nonsense and just plays music. In this case BHTM cost $29 with fees and the show was straight up good. No opening band and just one encore so they must have played to a price point...

Her new record rocks. Keep it out of the sun and play it loud.

Just heard this on my music station and really liked it.

They used to play that Meatloaf video before the midnight showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Varsity Theatre (RIP) in University City, Missouri. I had a group of high school friends who all would drive up there to see the midnight show on a frequent basis. They also used to play these Tim Curry videos before the main feature:

You know @Hulk that Meat Loaf's duet on "Paradise" is with Ellen Foley, who's from St. Louis? She's a fairly accomplished performer and definitely has a good voice.

But that's not her in the video, rather Karla De Vito...

And further, did you know Ellen Foley's backing band on her album Spirit of St. Louis was none other than The Clash?

Damn, Dave! I'm listening to some Ellen Foley now.

I'd forgotten about the hot scene with Karla De Vito and Meatloaf in the video. Used to love that as a teenager.

Oh, BTW, I remember Rocky Horror at the Varsity but in all honesty I wasn't a regular. There was a group in high school that did go all the time.

@Hulk @DaveInDenver I went to the Tivoli Theater in U-City to see RHPS.
When would that have been? It's possible that my memory is bad because at some point the Varsity became the new Vintage Vinyl location but since I was at SEMO at the time I really don't remember exactly when. It was in the little store when I left for Cape and was in the big store when I came back 5 years later.

Like I say, I wasn't a regular at RHPS and it would have been the late 80s when I was in high school. Pretty sure the Varsity closed in my senior year (1988-1989).


I think this video was made in 1978. Look closely to the who that is at 1:24...
