Episode 8 of Season 6 went out live at 7 pm on Rebel Rock Radio on 23 Feb 2023. 23 2 23 what a day, what a week what a 26-month journey. I am out of the game. Long live Rock and Roll. We kicked off this very unplanned show with Guns ‘n’ Roses and ‘Anything Goes’. From there something brand new from Black Star Riders and something old from Badlands, an awesome track called ‘High Wire’. Mike Orlando from Adrenaline Mob gave us all guitar lessons on a track called ‘Dearly Departed’. Grunge duty was fulfilled by Nirvana, Puddle of Mud, and Temple of the Dog.
We checked out another track from Indian rockers Girish & the Chronicles and a track off their latest album Hail to the Heroes, featuring Lamb of God’s drummer, the brilliant Chris Adler. There was an interesting little biographical bit all about 23 2 23 which has become a special day in the life of TSORR. I’ll tell you about it if you want to know. We checked out ‘Lay Your Hands On Me’ off Bon Jovi’s New Jersey album, then Bowie with ‘Changes’ and finally, U2 with ‘Beautiful Day’ which it was. From there we checked out Metallica and all [7:50] of the Diamond Head classic ‘Am I Evil’ which is this week’s Immortal track. The Ultimate Challenge this week looked at 1973. The choices were Led Zeppelin – Houses of the Holy, Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon, The Rolling Stones – Goats Head Soup, and Black Sabbath’s – Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.
We hit the home stretch with some punk courtesy of Blink 182 and ‘Edging’ then the Clash and The Stranglers and I couldn’t resist Patti Smith and ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Nigger’,. We ended heavy with Death Angel and Slayer and said good night with ‘Langpad’ by Cape Town legends The Uninvited.
