Episode 23 was a special episode in that I reflected back a bit on some of the songs that will always be an integral part of The Story of Rock and Roll. The Show was dedicated to my daughter who just turned 21, without her there would probably be no TSORR. The show went live at midnight on 14 June 2019, nothing was pre-planned, which was obvious right from the first 10 seconds. This is how it went down.
The show should have kicked off with the mighty Judas Priest but we took a listen to John Paul Young’s classic Yesterday’s Hero first. It included mega bands like Iron Maiden, Metallica, ZZ Top, Deep Purple and Rammstein, we checked out some punk in the form of The Professionals, The Sex Pistols and The Stranglers and as always we hit the SA music hard with Jack Hammer, Springbok Nude Girls and Valiant Swart. The Metal was supplied by In Flames. Other artists featured included The Temperance Movement, Shinedown, Tool, Tony Carey, Led Zeppelin, Billy Talent, The Uninvited, Trouble, UFO, Tesla and Stone Sour.
