    The Story of Rock and Roll: S7E16

    The Story of Rock and Roll: S7E16

    S7E16 went out live on Rebel Rock Radio at 19h00 on 18 April 2024.  As always it was a mixed bag of new and old, heavy and not so heavy.  Listeners rated it the most fun ever.   
    Note that if you listen to TSORR on Google Podcasts they are shutting it down.  You can find us on plenty of other sites if this happens.  The TSORR website will always be able to help.   
    This week's Twisted Twins featured tracks called ‘Bulletproof’.  We could have had Twisted Quintuplets as there were 5 different tracks with that name but we settled on a triplet.  Five Finger Death Punch, Sinner, and Paul Stanley.       
    Immortals this week came from Alter Bridge and the track was of course ‘Blackbird’.  Everything about it is perfect, from the way it builds all the way through to Tremonti’s masterful solo and Myles hitting all those high notes. 
    The Diabolical Challenge looked at four bands beginning with the letter ‘P’.  The idea is that we have 4 albums, and you can only pick one.  This week we had: 
    The Pretty Reckless – Light Me Up
    Pearl Jam – Vs.
    Pantera – Far Beyond Driven
    Parkway Drive – Vice Grip 
    Artists Featured: Butchering the Beatles, Raven Eye, ACDC, Free, The Screaming Jets, Rose Tattoo, Warrant, Thin Lizzy, KISS, Fifth Angel, Brave Rival, Joe Bonamassa, Burn Halo, Blue Scream, Five Finger Death Punch, Sinner, Paul Stanley, rush, U2, Pixies Danzig, Rob Zombie, Paradox, Paragon, Judas Priest, Texas Hippie Coalition, Alter Bridge, The Pretty Reckless, Pearl Jam, Pantera, Parkway Drive, Tom Morello, Windowpane, Massive Wagons, Zakk Wylde, Kerry King, Chaos Doctrine, David Bowie, Accept.

    The Story of Rock and Roll: S7E15

    The Story of Rock and Roll: S7E15

    S7E15 went out live on Rebel Rock Radio at 19h00 on 11 April 2024.     TSORR was on Myoli Beach in Sedgefield for this episode so the view was great.   
    This week's Twisted Twins featured tracks called ‘Winter’.  We looked to a local band called Crash Car Burn for the first track and then went back to the amazing Goats Head Soup album for a Rolling Stones song called Winter.  It’s interesting to note that this is one of the few Rolling Stones that Keith Richard did not play on.  The song was written and recorded by the two Mick’s – Jagger and Taylor.     
    Immortals was courtesy of Avenged Sevenfold, the title track off The Stage, the last good album they made before they went mental and served up the biggest turd in the history of metal.  off the Born to Run album, we took a listen to ‘Jungleland’.  Springsteen is at his finest on this groundbreaking album but it’s Clarens Clemons’ sax solo that really makes it Immortal.     
    The Diabolical Challenge looked at four bands beginning with the letter ‘O’.  The idea is that we have 4 albums, and you can only pick one.  This week we had: 
    Oasis – What’s The Story Morning Glory
    Ozzy Osbourne – The Ultimate Sin
    The Offspring – Killboy Powerhead
    Over Kill – The Grinding Wheel
     
    Artists Featured: King Kobra, Mötley Crüe, Phil Campbell & the Bastard Sons, Mick Mars, Airbourne, Doll Skin, Loverboy, Pat Benatar, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Metal Church, KISS, W.A.S.P., Crash Car Burn, The Rolling Stones, System of a Down, The Winery Dogs, Thunder, Warrant, Judas Priest, Keel, Foo Fighters, Guns ‘n Roses, Massive Wagons, Phillip Sayce, The Pretty Reckless, Avenged Sevenfold, Over Kill, The Offspring, Ozzy Osbourne, Oasis, Green Day, Anti-Flag, Y&T, Triumph, Children of Bodom, Arch Enemy, In Flames, Conil

    The Story of Rock and Roll: S7E14

    The Story of Rock and Roll: S7E14

    S7E14 went out live on Rebel Rock Radio at 19h00 on 4 April 2024.      
    This week's Twisted Twins featured tracks called ‘Take It Off’.  The Donnas and Suicide Bombers did the honours.   
    Immortals, a track over 7 minutes showcasing an artist's brilliance, came off the Born to Run album.  It is a track called ‘Jungleland’.  Springsteen is at his finest on this groundbreaking album but it’s the late Clarens Clemons’ sax solo that really makes it special.  And the lyric!  Never forget the lyrics when it comes to The Boss.  
    The Fake Feud featured Pete Townshend and ACDC.   The new TSORR Newsletter # 3 is out, check out the website if you want to watch it or join the mailing list.  
    The Diabolical Challenge looked at four bands beginning with the letter ‘M’.  The idea is that we have 4 albums, and you can only pick one.  This week we had: 
    Nirvana – Nevermind
    Night Ranger – Midnight Madness
    Nazareth – No mean City
    Neal Young – Freedom 
    The trick is to think about the whole album not just the track, it’s easy to forget that the whole of Nevermind is not Smells Like Teen Spirit 😊 
    Artists Featured: Those Damn Crows, Five Finger Death Punch, The Lazys, Sammy Hagar, Scorpions, Black Tide, Blue Öyster Cult, Clutch, Hammer Fall, Butch Walker, Supertramp, Megadeth, Metallica, Suicide Bombers, The Donnas, Trivium, My Chemical Romance, Judas Priest, Thunder Mother, Bruce Dickinson, Joel Hoekstra’s 13, The Clash, The Damned, The Stranglers, The Who ACDC, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Nirvana, Night Ranger, Nazareth, Neil Young, Annhilator, Testament, Electric 6, Palaye Royale, Claymorean, Sepultura, The Halo Effect.

    The Story of Rock and Roll: S7E13

    S7E13 went out live on Rebel Rock Radio at 19h00 on 28 March 2024.  It's hard to believe we are a quarter of the way through the year already!  As always TSORR is a celebration of guitar-driven Rock Music and the artists that make this wonderful music.  
    This week's Twisted Twins featured Godsmack, Buckcherry, and Skid Row.   
    The Immortals feature was a track called ‘When The Music’s Over’ by The Doors, I do not doubt that if you were at the gigs where they did this you would be forever altered.    
    The Diabolical Challenge looked at four bands beginning with the letter ‘M’.  The idea is that we have 4 albums, and you can only pick one.  This week we had:

    The Story of Rock and Roll: S7E12

    The Story of Rock and Roll: S7E12

    S7E12 went out live on Rebel Rock Radio at 19h00 on 21 March 2024.  It was full throttle out of the gate with Dio and ‘Evil Eyes’.  We had some new music from Dan Patlansky, Judas Priest and Bruce Dickenson.  Most interesting is a new single from Vended.  I am really digging Vended a lot, sons of Slipknot, literally, Griffin Tayor and Simon Crahan doing their parents proud.   
    To remind you to get tickets for next year's Green Day, The Offspring, and Fokofpolisikar concert in Cape Town and JHB we again took a quick track from each of them.   This weeks Twisted Twins featured a song called 'Lost in Hollywood'.  The new Judas Priest is out so obviously we continued to rave about that.    
    This week’s Immortals feature was incredible.  Mark Knopfler has assembled 60 musicians, mostly guitarists (he’s got Ringo and his son Zak on drums and Sting on Bass), and it is a veritable who’s who of guitar.  The track has been recorded by Mark Knopfler and Friends to raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust.  It’s a new version of 'Going Home' (Theme from Local Hero) and, it includes contributions from among others Joe Bonamassa, Slash, Springsteen, Joe Satriani, Steve Lukather, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, John Mc Laughlin, Brian May, the list goes.  Incredible.       
    This week's Diabolical Challenge looked at four bands beginning with the letter ‘L’.  The idea is that we have 4 albums, and you can only pick one.  This week we had: 
    Loverboy – Get Lucky
    Led Zeppelin – Over the Hills and Far Away
    Lynyrd Skynyrd – Second Helping
    Live – Throwing Copper
     
    Artists Featured: Dio, Chickenfoot, Phil X & the Drills, ACDC, ZZ Top, Saxon, Motörhead, The Union Underground, Overkill, Black Tide, Alice Cooper, Doomsday Outlaw, Michael Schenker Group, Guns ‘n’ Roses, Volbeat, Rainbow, System of a Down, Judas Priest, Bruce Dickinson, Bullet For My Valentine, Machine Head, Green Day, The Offspring, Fokofpolisiekar, Loverboy, Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Live, Metallica, Megadeth, Vended, Piet Botha & Jackhammer, Joe Bonamassa, Dan Patlansky, Pink Floyd.

    The Story of Rock and Roll: S7E11

    The Story of Rock and Roll: S7E11

    S7E11 went out live on Rebel Rock Radio at 19h00 on 14 March 2024.  Last week we invented a new feature which, thanks to some audience participation, has become known as Twisted Twins.  It involves playing two songs with the same name but by different bands.  We continued with Twisted Twins on this show as well as the usual favourites The Diabolical Challenge and The Immortals.  The new Judas Priest is out so obviously we continued to rave about that.  There is also a new Pearl Jam album coming and we took a listen to the title track 'Dark Matter.  Plus we have great news!  Green Day, The Offspring and Fokofpolisiekar coming to SA in January 2025.  
     
    This week's Immortals feature – a track over 7 min that showcases an artist in a way that typical 5 min radio tracks can’t.  This week we had one of the world's most beloved bands – Pink Floyd and the 11-minute masterpiece off Animals titled ‘Pigs (Three Different Ones)’.  Log overdue some might say, excuse the pun.      
     
    On The  Diabolical Challenge, we looked at four bands beginning with the letter ‘K’.  The idea is that we have 4 albums, and you can only pick one.  This week we had: 
    King Diamond – Abigail
    Krokus – One Vice At a Time
    Kiss – Lick It Up
    Kid Rock – Rebel Soul 
    Artists Featured: Nazareth, Mustasch, Buckcherry, Accept, Ratt, Iron Maiden, Volbeat, Green Day, The Offspring, Fokofpolisiekar, Great White, Jelusick, Cold Chisel, Airbourne, Mark Haze, Butch Walker, Tool, Pearl Jam, The Clash, The Stranglers, Annihilator, Burning Witches, Infanteria, Metal Church, Pink Floyd, King Diamond, Krokus, Kid Rock, KISS, Rush, Velvet Revolver, Elton John, The Beatles, Judas Priest, Saxon, Arch Enemy, Circus of Power.
