S7E12 went out live on Rebel Rock Radio at 19h00 on 21 March 2024.  It was full throttle out of the gate with Dio and ‘Evil Eyes’.  We had some new music from Dan Patlansky, Judas Priest and Bruce Dickenson.  Most interesting is a new single from Vended.  I am really digging Vended a lot, sons of Slipknot, literally, Griffin Taylor and Simon Crahan doing their parents proud.

To remind you to get tickets for next year’s Green Day, The Offspring, and Fokofpolisiekar concert in Cape Town and JHB we again took a quick track from each of them.   This weeks Twisted Twins featured a song called ‘Lost in Hollywood’.  The new Judas Priest is out so obviously we continued to rave about that.

This week’s Immortals feature was incredible.  Mark Knopfler has assembled 60 musicians, mostly guitarists (he’s got Ringo and his son Zak on drums and Sting on Bass), and it is a veritable who’s who of guitar.  The track has been recorded by Mark Knopfler and Friends to raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust.  It’s a new version of ‘Going Home’ (Theme from Local Hero) and, it includes contributions from among others Joe Bonamassa, Slash, Springsteen, Joe Satriani, Steve Lukather, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, John Mc Laughlin, Brian May, the list goes.  Incredible.

This week’s Diabolical Challenge looked at four bands beginning with the letter ‘L’.  The idea is that we have 4 albums, and you can only pick one.  This week we had:

Loverboy – Get Lucky

Led Zeppelin – Over the Hills and Far Away

Lynyrd Skynyrd – Second Helping

Live – Throwing Copper
