Saw them more times than I can remember. One of the first concerts I went to was the Angels, gotta love the value of that gig!   

As of Saturday evening I would say the Richmond Football Club Song...

I had youtube running in the background yesterday while I was working. It was playing Oils on the Water, Midnight Oil's 1985 concert on Goat Island. It would have to be one of the best playlists I have ever heard, and the band was so tight, and delivered it so well. Huge envy for anybody that was actually there.

Yup, can't beat those 80's rock & metal bands.  

BTW AP wasn't a landscaper in his youth - he was a metal lead vocalist :lol:

Hey no problem, glad you liked it.  In case you didn't pick it up, the lead singer ( Bruce Dickinson) is also the pilot.

These guys are my Acadaca, with their formulated sound, they somehow still manage to keep their sound fresh. Anyways if you're going to be a one trick pony, make sure it's a farkin good trick. John Schaffer chugging away on rhythm, in the 9 Circles of Hell -:

My FKN A hole of a best mate has been telling my google home to play "frozen" and other Disney songs. 

My youtube music account is linked to my google home. Now when I'm out running or riding I'll go from Rage Against the Machine to "Let it go, let it go....." 

Revenge will be sweet!!!!!!

Likewise. Angels & Radiators were standard fair at the Mansfield. Can't think how many times I saw them there over the years.

It was the only reason to cross the river other than to head down the coast. :)

I was only 10yo in '83, so a little bit before my time for gigging. First time I remember seeing 'em was mid 90's, at a gig called the "Barbed Wire Ball" at The Palace in St Kilda. On the bill that night was The Angels, Screaming Jets & The Poor. Also went on to see The Angels many more times.

One of my favourite Stones songs, and probably one of my favourites period!  I love the start; the guitar sound is gorgeous.  Richards ended up playing an Aussie Maton guitar on the recording, that someone who was crashing at his place (he can't remember who) left behind.

I love this clip from 1981, when the Stones & Muddy Waters played at the Checkerboard in Chicago. The club's half owner, Buddy Guy, also got up on stage for a later number, as did the rest of the Stones. Although it looks like they were coaxed up on stage, it was actually set up the week earlier that they would play & record a number of songs with Muddy, one of their idols. Incidentally they named themselves after one of his songs.

Thought I’d share this here. Brisbane’s MMM radio station has been running a listener poll on the GOAT artist/group, and revealing one each day. Only 2 to go. Knowing this station’s main audience (30 - 60) I’m thinking Queen 2nd and AC/DC 1st. But then that would leave KISS right out of the top 20 which surprises me. No sing of MJ either. Some of them are hard to fathom ie Stones 10 & Beatles 8 WTF , but apparently it’s what their listeners voted for.
