Aging cock rock comes to Canberra in spades!

johnboy 8 March 2011 15

Facebook has the frankly remarkable news that Quiet Riot, Warrant, and the LA Guns are going to play the ANU Bar!

Local rock legends Johnny Roadkill have won the lottery of life to get to be the local support.

The Intense Impact website has bios of these bands for those who need a reminder.

The video is of Quiet Riot drummer Frankie Banali announcing the tour.

Quiet Riot did a version of it too:

Full marks for originality, I don’t think…

Well it was one of their higher profile songs even if it was a cover.

Twisted Sister & a few others covered it too.

If I remember rightly Quiet Riot were actually pretty gay in my teenage years & didnt compare to the likes of Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Metallica, Motorhead ect.

I rate them right DOWN there with Poison……….

With any luck Whitesnake and Dokken will be added to the bill, as well.

I was going to post a sarcastic comment, then I remembered, I’m travelling up to Sydney to see Hawkwind this weekend.

So I’ll just STFU then, shall I ?

I have my tickets, probably numbered 1,2,3 and 4 but who cares.
Sure the lead singer of QR is dead and has been replaced with a nobody.
Sure the lead singer of Warrant is a bloated old junkie and has been replaced by a nobody.
Sure there are 2 LA Guns doing the rounds, one with the lead singer and and one with the guitarist ( with the surname Guns – hence the name) and this is the old lead singer version BUT WHO CARES!

Hair metal at it’s best. I will be the fat, bald bloke standing at the back trying to convince any and everyone that my hair was once long and that I could once rock it with the best of them.

That was me at the Angels concert last year!

If I am going to go see aging rockers dressed in black I’ll go see Motorhead.
