    I think Maiden got more progressive, right? They were never as commercial as Priest got, they stayed true to themselves
    I remember in high school in the mid ‘80’s these kids I knew would argue Maiden vs Priest
    They were in 10th grade and already on the way to being alcoholics

    Dont forget when he started out with the Prophets...


    Seriously though, great pick. I love his music myself when he was in Rainbow, Black Sabbeth and Dio.

    I lived in the Tampa area at that time and even assisted on some of the Death Metal records of the late 90s at Morrisound

    Hated Deicide.

    I liked Death but Leprosy was better than Spiritual Healing come on.

    Besides. I’m taking about more mainstream metal. Not the Death Metal scene. That’s more of a niche market.

    I think it was the idiots I hung out with that killed it for me. LOL

    “Come on dude you don’t really worship satan you’re not fooling anyone. Here drink this goats blood. Let’s see how serious you are”

    My buddy was at the party where Glen burned the cross into his forehead. He said it was retarded

    He said Glen was like “ohhh it feels so gooooood”. LOL

    It’s hard to take that seriously

    Hair Nation on Sirius XM kinda made me listen to Kix in a new light.

    Is that stupid ?

    Also....

    Does anyone remember how huge Slippery When Wet was when It came out? It was sorta like how Pearl Jam 10 took over the radio If I recall correctly. People knock Bon Jobi but that’s a great record for it’s time

    While not metal, metal but I never knew why these 2 bands weren't more successful than they were.

    I liked LA Guns much better than Guns and Roses and Phil Lewis' voice was much easier on my ears.

    Great Radio Controversy in my opinion is just a great album top to bottom.

    Had both bands not got some notoriety for their ballads they would have basically gone unnoticed because it was all about the ballad in the late 80s.
