    Stu is hanging out jamming with young bands on the pier. He looks like he’s having fun. Also a tip of the hat to these young musicians actually playing an instrument. Looks like they will play anywhere as well. Nice to see. Reminds me of better days

    Yes, they have impressive talent. Their dad was a minor pop star in Europe from a few years back.

    Yeah, her voice is incredible and powerful. I have gathered her vocal inspiration is Ronnie James Dio.
    They have two albums of cover songs out where she plays bass and sings The Trooper. Pulling off Bruce and Steve's parts and does them justice.

    Her band is endorsed by Sawtooth, who also have Michael Angelo Batio, Rudy Sarzo, & Vinnie Appice on their roster. Here is a video of the 4 of them doing Holy Diver: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcA12YJnHVI

    Nice.
    I hadn't heard of Sawtooth. They got some talented endorsers. I believe Liliac's guitarist Sam has a deal with Schecter guitars. Or used to.

    Judas Priest have announced rescheduled 2022 North American shows for their ongoing "50 Heavy Metal Years" tour, with Queensryche replacing Sabaton as the support act.

    The six-week trek begins on March 4 in Peoria, Ill., and concludes on April 13 in Hamilton, Ont. You can see the new 2022 dates below. Most tickets are on sale now on Ticketmaster's website, although a few shows will go on sale Dec. 3.

    Judas Priest were forced to postpone their tour after guitarist Richie Faulkner suffered a ruptured aorta during their Sept. 26 performance at the Louder Than Life Festival in Louisville, Ky. Video from the event shows Faulkner performing as his aorta ruptures. He was rushed to a nearby hospital immediately following Judas Priest’s performance and underwent a 10-plus-hour surgery.

    "I can see in my face the confusion and anguish I was feeling while playing 'Painkiller' as my aorta ruptured and started to spill blood into my chest cavity," he said in a statement following the incident. Faulkner recently assured fans he was “feeling very strong and positive” seven weeks after his surgery, and is “playing guitar every day.”

    Judas Priest had also been scheduled to tour the U.K. and Europe with Ozzy Osbourne in 2022, but the Prince of Darkness recently postponed those dates for a second time. They are now slated to hit the road together in 2023.

    ALL SYSTEMS UNSURE … Vinnie Vincent drove “Everybody crazy… even Kiss” and “He can’t make up his mind” says ex-bandmate Gary Shea
    November 29, 2021 • Posted under: News by Metal Sludge
    Metal Sludge — In a new interview on the 80’s Glam Metalcast, former Warrior bassist Gary Shea talks about many things related to his career.
    Vinnie Vincent – 2021

    Shea has played with Alcatrazz and New England and he gets listeners up to speed on the new Alcatrazz album “5” and their current tour.

    He also talks about New England and their KISS connections, including playing briefly with Vinnie Vincent in Warrior.

    As transcribed by Sleazeroxx: “Shea was asked about what it was like playing with Vincent to which he replied: “His problem is he can’t make up his mind on things. We’d work on a song and then the next day we would have to change it all around again. Then the third day, that song would be changed again. He would drive everybody crazy, he drove the guys in KISS crazy too.”

    Shea continued: “He was a good guy, but he had a lot of nervous energy. He did KISS, and then when he did his own thing he tried to be Yngwie Malmsteen and that was the wrong way to go in my opinion. He’s a great guitarist, and in Warrior he was playing more melodic like Jeff Beck or Mick Jones. All the screaming guitars and high vocals on his solos albums…. I don’t think it was as good as what we were doing.”

    To hear the full interview, listen below.

    Ted Nugent: David Lee Roth Was ‘Out of His Mind’ When We Met


    Ted Nugent said he couldn’t have a meaningful conversation with David Lee Roth because the Van Halen frontman was “out of his mind” on drugs.

    The guitarist’s comments came during a recent interview on the Paltrocast With Darren Paltrowitz. Asked about Roth, Nugent was initially complimentary.

    “I admire and praise his entertainment gifts; he's a monster,” the “Cat Scratch Fever” guitarist declared. “Tell me that all that David Lee Roth music with Van Halen isn't a smile eruption in our life. I mean, what a fun, cocky, soulful guy. He really does evoke, emulate and deliver touches of James Brown and Wilson Pickett and some Motown melodious grunt, and certainly the blues and the gospel and the rhythm and blues masters. You can hear that in David Lee Roth.”

    Nugent -- who said he’d interacted with Roth “a few times” over the years -- then went on to explain why he couldn’t have a “meaningful” conversation with the frontman.

    "I've always been militantly against substance abuse. And it's an absolute crime -- literally and figuratively -- and David's a perfect example. Again, I love him -- I hope he's happy, I hope he's healthy. He seems to know what happiness and health is; God bless him. Thank you, David, for enriching our lives with your incredible music. God bless you. But tragically -- and this goes to Eddie [Van Halen] too, and my encounters with Jimi Hendrix and so many people -- you couldn't have a meaningful dialogue. It was all stoned disconnect.”

    Nugent then compared his experience with Roth to the positive interactions he’d had with other artists.

    “When I sat down with B.B. King and when I sit down with a Joe Perry and a Steven Tyler, even though there were moments when it was hopeless -- there were moments… Sammy Hagar's a perfect example. We have a meaningful, man-to-man, human-to-human, fun, deep bull**** session, because he's in tune with himself, and he's real good at getting out of tune with himself. But my point is, I think it's important to note that the incredible amount of hours that I've been honored and humbled to spend with some of the most powerful music authorities in the world, there was nothing to be shared because they were drunk or stoned... All those moments reinforce my anger and hate for people who leave the world to drop out comfortably numb. They don't make anybody happy [when they do that].”

    Ultimately, the Motor City Madman lamented his interactions with Roth, adding it would have been great if the two had been able to truly connect.

    “Wouldn't it have been great for a smart-*** like David Lee Roth and a smart-*** like Ted Nugent to discuss the art of smart-***? I would have loved to have had that conversation, but there was no chance for it. The guy was out of his mind."

    Club Where Dimebag Darrell Was Killed Has Been Demolished
    The Alrosa Villa nightclub, the Columbus, Ohio music venue where "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott was murdered, has been demolished.

    For more than 45 years, the venue hosted a wide range of musical acts. Foghat, the Guess Who, Dream Theater, Night Ranger, Dio, Slipknot, Quiet Riot, Ratt and David Byrne were among the long list of rockers to grace its stage. However the Alrosa Villa will always be remembered for the tragedy which took place the night of Dec. 8, 2004.

    That evening, Damageplan, the band Dimebag Darrell and his brother Vinnie Paul formed following the breakup of Pantera, was headlining. Just moments into their set, a former U.S. Marine stormed the stage and opened fire. Abbott, the band’s head of security, a venue employee and a fan who attempted to give CPR to Dimebag were all killed in the mayhem. The gunman, Nathan Gale, was eventually shot and killed by police officer James Niggemeyer.

    Paul later sued the Alrosa Villa, claiming the tragedy would have been averted if security at the venue had prevented Gale from entering. The lawsuit was settled out of court in 2007.

    Though it was the site of one of metal’s most horrific events, the Alrosa Villa continued in operation for many more years. The club announced in June that it had closed its doors for good.

    “We've seen stars born here, unfortunately we've had stars pass away here, but the one thing that can never be taken away from us is the amazing memories we've all created along the way with magical people inside of this magical place,” read a message posted to the venue’s Facebook page. “I don't personally like how the media always chose to portray the venue when talking about it because they always chose to drag it down with negativity because of the unfortunate passing of Dimebag Darrell... But that shouldn't be what defines Alrosa as a music venue. They provided so many people with so many amazing opportunities throughout the years and we are happy to say that a lot of the best musicians in the country got their start right here at the venue on that stage.”

    Fan shot footage of the demolition can be seen below. The site where the Alrosa Villa once stood will soon be home to a 180-unit affordable housing apartment complex.

    Melvin Parker, Drummer for James Brown, Dead at 77

    Melvin Parker, best known as James Brown's drummer, died at age 77 last week in Baltimore. He performed on a bunch of Brown's hits in the '60s and '70's, including "Out of Sight," "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag," "I Got You (I Feel Good)" and "Get Up Offa That Thing."

    "The Parker family is in the process of making arrangements for a final goodbye," read an obituary on the website of. R. Swinson Funeral Services, located in Parker's hometown of Kinston, N.C. "Let's keep the Parker family in our thoughts and prayers during this time of bereavement."

    "We lost one of the greatest [drummers] that flew under the radar," wrote Bootsy Collins, who played with Brown before he joined Parliament-Funkadelic, on Facebook. "Thx u my brother Melvin for ur Gifts to the World & our time in the studio. R.I.P."

    Growing up, Parker and his siblings would perform impromptu songs and plays for the adults in the family, setting the foundation for his future career. "Daddy would line us up in the front yard and teach us 'left face' and 'right face' and 'about face,' and even doing half-lefts and half-rights and oblique moves. And we would march to time," Parker recalled of his childhood. "And he had us doing so well at time that we could do silent cadence ... I must have been about four or five years old, and I could march to a silent cadence. But I didn’t realize that he was teaching us time and rhythm."
