So now we've lost Gary Moore as well.

In a sorta metal related way....

Our local Contemporary Jewish Museum is showing an exhibit that traces the roots of Jewish infulence on the Black entertainment culture of the mid 50's and early 60's.

So what do they call it? (scroll down)
















That's right Black Sabbath!

That's almost as good as the "true Black Metal" practiced by Sound Barrier:

Finally, Alice Cooper is in the rock hall of fame. About time. I guess his love affair with golf and really long hotdogs muddied the judges eyes.

Schools out forever!

I'm a fan of Peter Gabriel's song, Shock the Monkey. Well, while buying it on iTunes, I sampled a cover of it by Coal Chamber, a sort of alt/metal band. I liked it and bought it as well. Ever heard of that group?

Coal Chamber were one of my brother's favs back in high school. Unlike me, he didn't stick with Metal for that long. They kind of latched onto the "nu" metal crowd, though I found them more tolerable than others in that lousy sub-genre. "Loco" was a kinda neat song. I don't think they're still around. . .

Nah, broke up a few years ago, though the singer's still around. I got "Loco" on a K-Tel compilation ( :shock: ) .

Why not?

Actually, I do remember Babylon AD, and Slik Toxic, though my mates were more into them than I was (I wasn't much into anything at the time). . .
