Some of My Favorite Live Albums

I typically enjoy live albums because they display a band in their natural element. And they tend to rock more than their studio counterparts. These are some of my favorites!!!

1. Grand Funk Railroad..Live Album. Still one of the heaviest albums of all time. Mark Says Alright!! Messenger guitar into West there's a combo you don't see anymore!!

2. UFO-Strangers in the Night. This one's on top of almost everybodys list.

3. Thin Lizzy-Live and Dangerous. So's this one.

4. Who-Live at Leeds. Again, a classic, and for a reason.

5. Rolling Stones-Get Your Ya Ya's Out. Stones at their peak of rocking out. After this they would add horns, etc. and water it out on later tours.

6. Status Quo- Live. The Quo boogie on....and on...and on!!

7. Rory Gallagher- STage Struck. Rory at his rockingest!!

8. Johnny Winter- Captured Live. Johnny at his rockingest!!

9. Judas Priest- Unleashed in the East. Priest at the top of their game, before they went a bit more commercial on British Steel.

10. ELP- Pictures at an Exhibition. "Death....Is...Life!!!"

11. Bloodrock-Live. I used to love these guys...still do!!

12. Humble Pie-Rockin the Fillmore. Actually only sides 1 and 4 are any good.

13. Black Oak Arkansas- Raunch and Roll. Jim Dandy to the rescue!!

14. Ramones- It's Alive. Sabbath played at 78rpm.

15. Exodus- Another Lesson in Violence. Pure Thrash.

16. Uriah Heep- LIve 1973. A classic...listen to Gary Thain's bass lines!!

17. Mott the Hoople- Live. Ariel Bender on guitar, he really ups the heaviness!!

18. Slade- Alive. Noddy Holder, the original gravel voice!!

19. AC/DC- If You Want Blood. With Bon....when they rocked!!!

20. Cream- Live Vols. I and II. Clapton before he became a pussy!!!

21. Rush-All The Worlds A Stage. It brings a tear to my eye and listen to this, then listen to everything Rush has done in the past 30 years!! Oh sadness.

22. Foghat-Live. The soundtrack to my senior year, this was my favorite album. Jammed a lot to this one!!

23. Scorpions-Tokyo Tapes. Before Scorpions became a pop metal band (sometime after Lovedrive), they had Uli Roth on guitar and kicked ass, like on this album!!!

24. Ted Nugent- Double Live Gonzo. Uncle Ted...hey he was the biggest grossing live act in 1977 and 1978!!

25. Allman Bros- Live At Fillmore. Another one that makes everybodys list.

26. MC5- Kick out the Jams. "A song called....Starship!!"

27. King Diamond- Live 1987: Abigail. No list would be complete without the King!!

28. Dictators- Fuck Em if They Can't Take a Joke. Handsome Dick and Ross the Boss rock out.

29. Kiss-Alive. Allright, had to include this because they did influence me, but man, anyone who still likes these guys...wake up!!

30. Jimi Hendrix- In the West. Just about to be re-issued...the best Hendrix live with the absolute best rendition of "Red House".

L-Theory: A Revolution in Particle Physics

I have just made perhaps the greatest scientific discovery of the 21st century. This discovery is equivalent, or perhaps more important, than Relativity and quantum mechanics. It surpasses string, or M-theory, and after I publish it will probably land me the Nobel Prize in Physics. I have spent the last 30 years on this theory, and I have more than 2000 pages of advanced calculations that prove conclusively that my theory is correct.

I have proved, beyond doubt, the Theory of Lose.

I present to you, L-Theory. At the core of L-Theory, is the discovery, and mathematical proof, of the existence of several new elementary particles. The particles, and a brief explanation, are as follows:

1. The Dipon. This is a force particle (similar to a gluon) that transmits the force of lose. It is a very rare particle, and there have been only 3 confirmations of it's existence out of a trillion subatomic particles.

2. The Winon. This is the antiparticle of the dipon. When a dipon and winon collide, negative energy is expelled in the form of a loson.

3. The Milfon. This particle is repelled by the dipon, much like 'like' charges repel. A dipon and a milfon have never been observed in nature.

4. The Studon. This particle attracts the milfon, leaving the few dipons to disintegrate in a state of instability being unpaired (much like an unpaired electron). The studon and the milfon are attracted by two force particles, the cashon and the dickon. Calculations show that dickons with the highest mass transmit the most attractive force to the milfons.

5. The Axon. This particle adds some stability to the dipon, however many axons are needed and according to calculations, the more axons are accumulated by the dipon, the more are needed to maintain stability. Extra stability can be achieved by combining axons with GT3ons. Axons are themselves composed of two smaller, quark-like particles, the fendon and the gibbon.

I have been searching my whole life for a Grand Unified Theory of Lose (GUTL), and at last my research has come to fruition. This proves indeed that lose is nothing you have any control over. Quantum fluctuations, and Heisenberg's Uncertainty principle, ensure that the particles I discovered that cause lose are beyond human control. They are a force of nature, and nature has a way of selecting the fittest.

I will be publishing this work (including all calculations) in the journal Nature.

Casey Anthony: The Child Murdering Slut!!!

I predicted from the very beginning that that child murdering whore Casey Anthony would walk free, and I was proved right!! The judicial system proves it's total worthlessness once again.

Whore with fake tit, must acquit!!!

This little butt fucked tramp killed her 3 year old kid just so she could score more cock without that kid getting in the way. She dumped the kid in a swamp like yesterdays garbage. Of course she left the dead body in her trunk for a while, rotting, until she could get around to ditching it. Then she went out and partied and probably got a cum bath. All it proves is that to get away with murder, all you need is a jury composed of a bunch of idiots with no common sense. Like the OJ trial.

So this murderous slut goes free, and I freaking GUARANTEE she will have a new boyfriend within a day or two. Hot chicks have no down time, even ones that murder 3 year olds and dump their decomposed body in the swamp.

I look forward to her porno video.

Classic Albums Revisited: Montrose

You cannot underestimate the impact of the first Montrose record, released in 1974 if my memory serves me correct. Around that time, many of the "established" heavy bands were getting soft...Zep, Sabbath, Purple. This album was a swift kick in the ass, sorta like the Sex Pistols album was in 1978. It was one motherfucker of a they were saying "this is how you rock!". Loud, heavy, no ballads, and even pop metal poster boy Sammy Hagar was in the band!!! (not that i'm a fan of Sammy, that is, outside of his work with Montrose).

I remember first reading of the album in Circus magazine. It was those reviews I used to really love, where they rate the albums with one ear, two ears, a heart, or something like that. They gave the album "Two LOUD ears". So ever on the lookout for something heavy, I rushed right out to pick it up. It did not disappoint!!

The best thing was the production. Ronnie's axe sound, a classic Les Paul into Marshall sound, was just MASSIVE. Listen to the riff on "Rock Candy". Jesus!! The riff just slams you into the wall, completely pulverizing you.

Alas, like so many other bands with killer first albums (the first Van Halen comes to mind, of course that one was without Sammy boy), the second album "Paper Money" was OK but a lot weaker. After that, it was done and Sammy went on to become a mega millionaire but he was never to rock again! Montrose continued on with several line-up changes (albums like "Warner Bros. Presents" and "Jump On It"), then formed Gamma, but it was really never as heavy as this again.

But that first album, is an absolute MUST own, and a classic hard rock/metal masterpiece. If you don't own it, you're a pussy. It just got released on 180g vinyl so buy it now!
