Agreed there.

The 60 combo I played sounded pretty sweet and I know it gets hated on a fair amount. It was a used one. I only played it for maybe 15 minutes, where I've played all sorts of DSLs.

Besides, it was a joke. Matt wasn't referring to the map.

I think the kids call that 'playing along.'

I don't mind the TSLs but I just couldn't find any use for the extra channel. The DSL is a solid 7 in my book so a more expensive, not any more useful version of the same amp didn't thrill me.

off the top of my head, but maybe pornograffitti by extreme?

I never could get into Extreme for whatever reason. I also don't consider them a '90's' band. Even though that album may have come out in the 90's. Maybe I don't know that much about them

People were listing Megadeth and such too. To me 90's music is almost like a genre

Agreed. I would never buy one either because for the money I can think of lots of other things I'd rather have, a DSL being one of them.

Matt - My buddy saw Rebelution at Stubbs in Austin last night. Sounded like a blast. He said he can't believe he amount of pot smokers in there... He was also astounded by the lucky bastards in apartments across the way that got a free show from their balcony. Sounds like an awesome venue.

That place is on my bucketlist.

Lub me some Stubbs.

Let me see if I have a picture for that?

the pornograffitti album is killer (if you like that type of thing, obviously). It's one of those albums like appetite for destruction where nearly every song is excellent (or at worst, "pretty good"). Like if given the choice between a "best of" CD and that one album I'd pick that one album, probably.

mainly i was just annoyed at the flippant way the person who wrote the article dismissed hair metal, as if everyone agrees that it sucked and as if everyone agrees that everything after van halen was derivative. Everyone doesn't (or at least, it's no more derivative than anything else, show me any new genre of music which suddenly went mainstream and I'll show you a bunch of derivative bands riding on the originators' coattails). And if music *is* subjective (which the types who rag on hair metal normally say), then that goes both ways, you can't turn round and say hair metal sucks. You can't have your cake and eat it too.

Yeah, totally agree.

One of the reasons I like Ratt and Motley Crue so much is that it is a relatively simple blues based riffing just cranked up.

and yeah i think that's what i like about 80s rock and metal too, you can play along with the rhythm track pretty easily if you just wanna rock out, but then the solo comes along and you can also let rip (and even the solos are normally not that difficult in terms of theory, more in terms of the skill required to play them, so you can normally play along with them too, in a half-assed way, anyway).

I'm not actually sure what my favourite extreme track is, there isn't really one that sticks out, some have killer riffs (it's a monster, pornograffitti, he man woman hater), others are good songs but not really much fun to play along to (more than words), and some have killer solos (get the funk out, or the intro to he man woman hater or mutha don't wanna go to school today). well most have killer solos, but still.

That venue can be the either the best or the worst time you'll ever have depending on what the weather is like. Right now is probably a great time. Temps are 50-60˚F and humidity isn't too terrible. It's just miserable when it's stupid hot with humidity over 70% though. Would definitely love to live in the apartments across the street. So much fun would be had.

I like Hair Metal. Obviously Van Halen is king, but I also think Whitesnake has brilliant moments. Not such a huge fan of Ratt, but they have their moments as well. I'm with you
Dave, the riffage is what hooks you but then the solo comes and you are like "oh hell, shit just got crazy!"

See Ratt has some great riffs, but they never caught me with their choruses like a lot of the other hair bands.

#157
^ i can sorta see what he means (though i love ratt). I'm not sure pearcy is as good of a singer as some of the other hair metal singers, and their chorus melodies tend to follow the riffs rather than be just an out-and-out singalong melody like some other hair metal bands.

yeah i don't like it when people (mainly music journalists, who coincidentally probably wouldn't know how to play a note if you handed them a guitar) act like hair metal is really simplistic. sure, the lyrics are puerile and the fashions questionable, but get past those and the musicianship and singing generally are pretty badass (and you can't always say that about some genres of rock, especially some of the more modern, more "critically acclaimed" types of rock). Plus it's not like the stuff those journos are singing the praises of is any less simplistic. If you're listening to mozart's requiem or jazz fusion or something like that, then ok, you can call hair metal "simplistic". if you're listening to the arctic monkeys then you can **** right off.

it's like the way some people used to act like I only liked the one type of music because I didn't like pop and they thought i only liked metal. I mean I was listening to classical, blues, jazz etc. too, but apparently that didn't count because it was too high-brow. I simultaneously had too low-brow and too high-brow tastes for their liking. Yet i was the closed-minded one.

people.

I mean... i don't care less if people like hair metal or not. You can like what you like. Again, though, it's the "have your cake and eat it" thing. if you want to slag off hair metal for being simplistic, then fair enough, but that means I can slag off your music for being simplistic too (and odds are, as i mentioned above, it's actually more simplistic than hair metal is ). Likewise if you think hair metal is silly because you hate solos or whatever and think music should be just about expression and not about the musicianship, that's your prerogative, but you can't then turn round and call it puerile either (or make any comment on how simple or otherwise it is).

Dokken is probably my fav hair band next to Ratt. Probably the most technically talented of the hair bands as well.

Love me some Dokken.


I think Ratt is a bit more technical IMHO. It's easier for me to hack my way through Dokken songs.


Have you heard of this band? This is probably the cheesiest/most awesome power ballad of all time.
