    Thanks! I understand what you mean, I love listening to Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats. Are they kind of shameless Sabbath clones? Yeah. Are they still fun to listen to? Sure are. Again, we're talking about guitar based rock/metal, there's going to be a limit to what you can do within that structure before you start to retread. Your choices are pretty much "retread a bit on good stuff from the past" or "go so extreme that you cease to be musical and/or start to lose your core audience for the genre".

    I used to dig That Metal Show depending on the guest. But that guy is a walking Pillsbury dough tube of pretentiousness.
    So let me get this straight- that round boy decided to get plastic surgery instead of hitting the gym and laying off the Twinkies? What'd he get done? I stopped paying attention to his bloated *** LONG ago precisely because of the things you talked about.

    Um...what year did Uncle Acid form? Because I had that as a band name in the early early 90's!

    I had to explain to the other guys ... " you know, Aunt Acids husband! "

    They formed in 2009 in the UK, they're probably the most modern band that I listen to regularly. I got into them about a year ago.

    I agree, I feel like there have been at least 100 other bands with that name haha.

    It's like "The B Sides", there's one of those in every town.

    Haven’t heard of these guys. I’ll check them
    Out.

    On the flip side, I was at a truck stop and they had CD’s for 99 cents. They had Kingdom Come in their and I bought it. Are they a Led Zeppelin clone? Yes, but I enjoy listening to them.

    Definitely had the face done. The eyes and mouth are most noticeable. And I don't doubt for a minute that he threw-in a little lipo.

    I brought my son to his first ever concert, Journey. He had no idea we were going until we were on our way.

    If you are speaking about Journey, their energy was there unlike many of the older bands. A younger lead singer who flies around the stage helps. The audience has no right to talk though. I would say a good portion already looked like they were collecting Social Security.

    The bassist Ross Valory and keyboardist Jonathan Cainís outfits have them looking like they want to be younger than they are. On the other side, at times Cain dresses like itís Casual Friday at work. He cannot find his place.

    His lounge act, talking over while playing a piano solo, which eventually lead into the beginning of Faithfully, is really cheesy. It is definitely a weapon for those who dislike them. Ugh.

    They played all of the songs youíd expect as well as the song Escape, a real favorite of mine. They played it one of the other times Iíve seen them so it must be a deep cut that the band really likes to play or the audience has shown to appreciate. My son really loves it, but thatís because I play it whenever I listen to them.

    Iíve seen Journey twice before in the last 3 years. They played 1.5 hours with no encore and had no opening band. I felt a little cheated with the amount of time played, even Steve Smithís drum solo was about half of the time it was previously.

    In a way, the lack of an encore was nice. The only other headline act I saw not give one was Mark Laneganís solo performance I recently saw. Encores are so predictable anymore anyway and besides, the crowdís geriatric energy didnít deserve one. Most of the people were not standing, especially in the back, let alone screaming loud enough for the band to give one.

    When did Arnel Pineda suddenly turn into Shemp from the 3 Stooges?

    Anyways, cool that you and your son got to experience some live music; even if hanging upside down...
