    The Story of Rock and Roll: S7E9

    Season 7 Episode 9 went out live on Rebel Rock Radio at 19h00 on 29 Feb 2024.  We had a full house in TSORR Central and the show was an absolute pleasure to do.   It was a good mix of classics, brand new tracks, heavy, not so heavy, something for everyone.   
    For this week’s Immortals feature – a track over 7 min that showcases what an artist is all about, we gave the multi-talented Steven Wilson the slot.  Wilson is well known for his work as a solo artist as well as with Porcupine Tree released Hand. Cannot.  Erase in 2015.  We listened to a track called 'Happy Returns / Ascendant Here On'.    
    The Diabolical challenge this week looked at four bands beginning with the letter ‘I’.  The idea is that we have 4 albums, and you can only pick one.  This week we had: 
    Iggy & The Stooges – Raw Power
    Ian Hunter – You’re Never Alone With a Schizophrenic
    Iron Maiden – Somewhere In Time
    In Flames – Clayman

    The Story of Rock and Roll: S7E8

    S7E8 went out live on Rebel Rock radio at 19h00 on 22 Feb 2024.  It was touch and go with a fiber failure an hour before the show, big well done to the guys at Vodacom Fibre for sorting it out in time.  We started with a bit of ACDC and ‘Overdose’ off the Let There Be Rock album and just kept on building from there. 
    This week's Immortals feature – a track over 7 min that showcases what an artist is all about was the original version of Am I Evil by Diamond Head.  You may only know the Metallica version and they have indeed made it famous, but it all started here.  I went into the story in a bit of detail because it is one of the best examples of a win–win ever.  Everyone involved scored because of this track and it really is iconic.   
    The Diabolical challenge this week looked at four bands beginning with the letter ‘G’.  The idea is that we have 4 albums, and you can only pick one.  This week we had: 
    Halestorm – American Boys
    Hinder – Homecoming Queen
    Hell Yeah – Hell Yeah
    Hanoi Rocks – Two Steps From the Move
     
    Artists Featured:  ACDC, Bullets & Octane, Danko Jones, Mötley Crüe, Desolation Angels, Great White, Foreigner, The Eagles, ZZ Top, Theory of a Deadman, Palaye Royale, Iron Maiden Megadeth, Alice Cooper, Dio, Dire Straits, Jethro Tull, Green Day, Sex Pistols, Thin Lizzy, Black Star Riders, Yngwie Malmsteen, Burning Rain, Diamond Head, Hanoi Rocks, Hell Yeah, Hinder, Halestorm, Saxon, Sakis Tolis, The Rolling stones, Suicide Bombers, Volbeat, Neil Young, Tom Petty.

    The Story of Rock and Roll: S7E7

    Welcome to S7E7 of The Story of Rock and Roll radio Show.  This one went out on Rebel Rock Radio at 19h00 on 15 Feb 2024.  I was in Clarens with master guitarist Dan Patlansky and a whole lot of guitar maniacs so the show deals with that a bit, but for the main, it is straight down-the-line Rock and Metal, as you would expect.   
    This week's Immortals feature – a track over 7 min that showcases what an artist is all about features the man himself, Mr Dan Patlansky with a track recorded back in 2006 on an album called Real. The track is called Bad Weather Blues and showcases just what a great player he is.  Next week I hope to play you a short interview Dan and I are planning regarding his new album Movin’ On.   
    The Diabolical challenge this week looked at four bands beginning with the letter ‘G’.  The idea is that we have 4 albums and you can only pick one.  This week we had: 
    Grand Funk Railroad – We’re An American Band
    Golden Earring – Moontan
    Great White – Hooked
    Guns ‘n’ Roses – Use Your Illusion II 
    Artists featured:  Saxon, Volbeat, Thunder, Burn the Priest, Five Finger Death Punch, KK’s Priest, Bon Jovi, Foo Fighters, The Angels, Cold Chisel, Rose Tattoo, Mother Love Bone, Junk Yard, Warrant, Suicide Bombers, Joel Hoekstra’s 13, Motörhead, Buckcherry, ACDC, Machine Head, Burning Rain, The Winery Dogs, Green Day, Blink 182, Stone Temple Pilots, Faith No More, Dan Patlansky, Grand Funk Railroad, Golden Earring, Great White, Guns ‘n’ Roses, Cadillac Sun, 12th Avenue, Seether, Rammstein, The Pretty Reckless, Arch enemy, Powder Finger.

    The Story of Rock and Roll: S7E6

    Welcome to The Story of Rock and Roll Radio Show.  Season 7 episode 6 aired at 19h00 on Rebel Rock Radio on 8 Feb 2024.  As always, the show consisted of 3 hours of Rock and Metal and covered all sorts of artists from late 1960 through to albums released this week.  You should find something amongst this lot, see 'Artists featured' below (in order of appearance).     
    The Immortals track this week came from Blue Öyster Cult, a track called Shooting Shark off The Revolution By Night album.  Buck Dhara on guitar never disappoints.  
    The Diabolical Challenge this week looked at the letter ‘F’.  As with last week's 'E', this one was not easy either, not a lot of bands starting with ‘F’.  Foreigner got bumped for Fokofpolisiekar which may not make sense to international listeners.  All I can say is that if you read the book, The Story of Rock and Roll, things will be clearer.  Fokofpolisiekar were a legendary live band and a huge part of my life in the early ’00s.   We looked at the following albums and played a track off each: 
    Free – Fire and Water 
    Five Finger Death Punch – American Capitalist
    Fokofpolisiekar – Lugsteurings
    Foo Fighters – Wasting Light 
    Artists featured:  The Jam, Motörhead, Night Ranger, the Temperance Movement, Phil Campbell, Roan Van As, Tom Petty, Iced Earth, hell Fire, Kiss, L.A. Guns, Massive Wagons, Circus of Power, Doomsday Outlaw, Halestorm, The Distillers, The Wildhearts, Iron maiden, Judas Priest, Nevada beach, Tokyo Blade, Tony Martin,  Roadkill Ghost Choir, Volbeat, W.A.S.P., Blue Öyster Cult, Free, Five Finger Death Punch, Fokofpolisiekar, Foo Fighters, Extreme, Deep Purple, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Avenged Sevenfold, ACDC

    The Story of Rock and Roll: S7E4

    Welcome to Episode 4 of Season 7.  S7E4 went out live at 19h00 on 25 Jan 2024 on Rebel Rock Radio.  Amazing to think that the first month of 2024 is done, where does the time go?  We started gently with some Iron Maiden and the show progressed from there.  We had new releases from Green Day, Saxon, Judas Priest, and Ryan Adams.  The year is starting off well.    
    The Immortals slot, a track over 7 min long, went to Deep Purple’s ‘Knocking at Your Back Door' off their 1984 Perfect Strangers album.  This album was the reunion of the celebrated Mk II line-up and did very well for them.

     Dio – The Last in Line
    The Darkness – Permission to Land
    David Bowie – Scary Monsters and Super Creeps
