    & to make the thread drift a bit, Purple of the big 3, ( Sabs,Zep & Purple were in my view the biggest & most significant progenitors of heavy rock-metal of the 70's), were alone in playing REALLY fast stuff. Fireball & Burn to be exact.

    They weren't a metal band, but did have elements of it in them. That was one of em. Sabs played mostly slow. Fastest track perhaps was Never Say Die. Which was nowhere near as fast as the aforementioned Purple tracks. Zep played Communication Breakdown, but no other fast stuff.

    Rats in the Cellar by Aerosmith was pretty fast, & Queens Stone Cold Crazy kinda fast, but these came out 74-75, well behind the Purps.

    I forgot Alice Coopers Holy Muscle of Love. Pretty fast for that time.

    The Who: Face Dances, It's Hard, and Endless Wire - They really should have hung it up after Keith Moon died, even moreso after John Entwistle passed away.

    I know Ozzy wishes he'd never made The Ultimate Sin.

    Ever hear the debut of Captain Beyond, which featured intitial Purple frontman Rod Evans from the days when the Purp began life as a psychedellic pop outfit? That's another early example of fast-playing hard rock. Sir Lord Baltimore from the same era also have a couple of tracks in the same vein.

    Grand Funk Railroad, circa Live Album and after, had a fair number of tunes that fit the "fast hard rock" category.

    Brooks & Dunn - Tight Rope

    Every other album of theirs has songs that still get airplay or live performances, but songs from that one got dropped pretty quickly.

    Even the guys in the band thought so - didn't Roger once say that it's the only one on the whole album that's actually worthy of being released?

    And if they ever make a CSI: London, there's your theme song. :techman:

    Moving on...there was a rumor that Warrant absolutely hated Cherry Pie (the title track, anyway) but that was just one instance of the lead singer being interviewed at a really bad time and was in a shitty mood and said a bunch of things that got taken way out of context.

    If Nickelback aren't ashamed of everything they have recorded, they should be.

    Nightwish Dark Passion Play without tarja turunen as their lead vocalist i really feel that they have lost the voice that made them unique and one of my favourite bands.

    Personally I think the live version of Staying Power (from their 1982 Milton Keynes Bowl show) totally tramples and stomps the studio version all over the dancefloor! :D

    Personally, I think 5:15 would be a better choice!:)

    No Todd, never heard of em. Cactus was another band I think that fond of playing fast.

    I do remember a radio advert for a Deep Purple concert very late 70's. They were stopped pretty quickly, the DJ Jim Ladd warned that it wasn't the real deal. Always wondered who was behind that, some old member? Evans perhaps. Dunno.

    Noel Gallagher wishes Oasis hadn't made Be Here Now, which is why it's unrepresented on their "Best Of" compilation, Stop the Clocks. Which shows what an idiot Noel Gallagher can be at times; I love that album. :)

    And someone mentioned Garth Brooks' concept album as the Australian rock star, Chris Gaines. I think that strange album works well, and I've enjoyed listening to it over the years.

    I remember Captain Beyond (which also included former members of Iron Butterfly) but not sure about Sir Lord Baltimore.

    I was at that concert, or one of them. [The last one, as it turns out -- at the Long Beach Arena.] Someone had discovered Rod Evans working as a supervisor in a hospital in Los Angeles and put a band together to back him up, doing songs from all versions of Deep Purple, heavy on the Mark II era. Too bad Ladd didn't start warning until after they pulled the plug on the concerts.

    He did warn before when the tickets were being sold. How was the show?

    Yeah me too. I would have thought Standing on the Shoulders of Giants would have been a more obvious choice.
