Episode 40 went out live on 6 Oct 2022 at 19h00 on rebel Rock radio.  We kicked off with The Who and ‘I’m Free‘ which was fitting seeing as I have just finished nearly three years of study and now have a lot more time to dedicate to The Story of Rock and Roll.  It was a pretty laid-back start by TSORR standards featuring stuff by John Cougar, Black Stone Cherry, and Jimmy Barnes.  The pace picked up with Motörhead and when we went to Germany to visit Rammstein and Scorpions with ‘Zwitter’ and ‘Wild Child‘ respectively.

The next part of the show covered some classic ’70 and ’80s stuff from Golden Earring and Pat Benetar.  Instead of KISS we took a listen to a Gene Simmons track called ‘Living in Sin.  We changed pace with some Billy Talent (no he is not singing “I gave my life to Satan” :-), listen carefully) and Matthew Good Band out of Canada.  From there a good dose of Serbian Metal from Claymorean and then my current favourite thrash band out of San Franciso, Hell Fire, by now no strangers to this radio show.  Check out their new album Reckoning.

The Punk came courtesy of The Clash, Die Toten Hosen, and Rancid, Carnival in Rio (Punk Was) went down very, very well.  Pairing George Lynch and Jeff Beck back to back was a great idea, listen out for those solos on the Lynch Mob and Ozzy tracks.

We hit the final straight with some great new SA stuff, another band out of the Devo Oosthuizen stable, this week a band called Forth Son South, and then we had Code 106 from their Alium EP.  From there some Springbok Nude Girls and classic Fokofpolisiekar.  A highlight of the show was a quick little tribute to the amazing Eddie Van Halen who passed away 2 years ago to the day.  You’ll always be special to me Eddie RIP and thank you for everything.

The ending was also very cool, we went acoustic with Rush, off Rush in Rio, and a track called ‘Resist‘ and then Live with ‘Overcome’, recorded live in Amsterdam at the Paradiso.  We then finished off with a bit of Neil Young and out with Megadeth off the new album The Sick, The Dying…….and The Dead.
