Skid Row - I Remember You [HD]

Talking about Skid Row, I am still remember when we didn't give a damn about their performance as the opening band for Bon Jovi New Jersey tour in Reunion Arena, Dallas Texas in 1989. At that time, we just didn't know about this band at all. So you just imagine, with Snake Sabo, Scottie Hill and Sebastian Bach on stage and yet you did not bother to watch them. We were so eager to watch Bon Jovi at the time. So what we did were just lepaking at watched  texas chicks during Skid Row performance. And few months later Skid Row debut album Youth Gone Wild exploded on the chart with the song likes Youth Gone Wild, 18 and Life and I Remember You. The video clips of Youth Gone Wild, and the other two songs mentioned were played on MTV over and over again. Man, what a regret. For me the guitar solo by Scottie Hill in I Remember You is among the best of all time. I did know how did he manage to get that kind of sound...just haunting and mesmerizing. Sebastian Bach's vocal was so high and awesome. Slave to the Grind is another strong album by them. Its really demonstrated song writing talent from Snake Sabo and good combination with SB. Wasted Time, In The Darkened Room, Monkey Business are among the wicked songs written in the album.

Understand, they paid the late Gary Moore about $50,000 to own the right to use the name Skid Row.

Come to think of it, it was really funny and felt really stupid at the same time. Hehe.

Wasted Time - Skid Row.

Cheers .

Happy New Year 2013 and may we be blessed with good health and prosperity.Also GIVE PEACE A CHANCE.

It was just strolling around at the famous guitar street in london @Danmark Street , Tottenham Court Road but somehow was stunned with this Jackson Warrior WRXMG Black Guitar and got involved hehe. This guitar reminds me of Stryper and Dave Munstaine. 

This Guitar is made in Japan and Jackson is moving away from Japan due to economic reason and will produce their guitar in China, India and not to mention Indonesia. I believe this guitar will be hot in the next three years. (take position bro hehe)

Remember this band? WASP with legendary Blackie Lawless and Chris Holmes. One of the most under rated bands for me. Really love the first and second album with the songs like Fxxx Like A Beast, L.O.V.E Machine, Wild Child, Blind in Texas, Cries In The Night, etc. SYJ really love to perform wild child but in malay version Anak Liar. SYJ orang timur long solo also taken from the song Sleeping (In The Fire). Awesome.

No other band can match the raw power of Blackie Lawless.

Blind in Texas, the Lone Star is Hot Tonite...

Metallica - Fade To Black (1988.07.03) Dallas, TX, USA - Monster of Rock

I was there you all. Awesome experience. This concert started from 10 am and finished until 1100 pm. This was Monster of Rock 1988 in Cotton Bowl, Dallas Texas. It was headlined by Van Halen. Metallica was part of the bands performed in addition to Kingdom Come, Scorpion, Dokken and Van Halen. At this time Metallica had just released their best album (at least for me) Justice For All. One interesting fact was that Metallica fans just did not give a shit about other acts during the festival. They just "metal up their ass".

This experience can't be bought with money. Just wicked. Lucky me.


Stryper - To Hell With the Devil at M3 festival on 5/12/2012

 Another one. Just like this band Stryper.

 In 1989, we bought tickets to watch them live in Dallas, Texas but did have luck as the show was postponed to later date. The best part was that we did not know until we reached the venue and were told by Dallas police that the show was postponed. So disappointed. Lucky us, we managed to get the refund. We did not go to the make up concert as  the date clashed with our semester exam dates. What a memory. Just love their music. Micheal Sweet , Oz Fox, Tim Gaines and Robert Sweet are awesome.

To Hell with the Devil, In God We Trust, Always There For You are among the best written songs by STRYPER.

Yellow and Black Attack.


Quiet Riot - Live In The 21st Century (20 Years Of Metal Health)

Believe it or not, this is one my favorite bands of all time. Don't know why. The classic line up of Kevin Dubrow RIP, Rudy Sarzo, Frankie Banalli and Carlos Cavazo are awesome.

Please enjoy the full concert.

Europe Top Football Stadiums

Today and tomorrow is Xmas public holiday here. But the weather this time is really sucks...wet and cold so today we do not go anywhere...hibernating hehe. Damned bored. Luckily I got this new toy to keep me going. Hopefully, we will be able to see some light tomorrow.

Interestingly, today in FB somebody shared the old picture of the great Super Mokh and Maradona taken in 1982 at Merdeka Stadium - Boca Juniors vs Selangor. I was there and what a game and experience. That entry actually gave some ideas of me sharing some football arenas that I visited with all of you.

Camp Nou: 2012. What a great stadium. But to be honest I like Old Trafford better.

Amsterdam Arena : 2011. Full of history. Not bad.

 Roma Olympic Stadium : sucks

Real Madrid Barnebeu: What a majestic stadium. You can fell the aura. Awesome place.

San Siro also nice .

My next target will be Alliance Arena, Munich.

All the best.
