The Scorpions have officially called it a career, retiring at the end of their last tour. The band formed in 1965, and rose to popularity in the 70’s around Europe and Asia, and then exploded in the US during the early 80’s. Michael Schenker left the band very early on, after their debut CD to join UFO, returning to record along side his brother Rudolph on the album Lovedrive. This is one of the tracks that he played on in the studio, and this is a cool clip of the band at the Wacken Festival in Germany in 2006 with Michael sitting in.
I would think that most of the you guys might now know who Nazareth is, but if you know the songs “Love Hurts” and “Hair Of The Dog” then you definitely have heard Nazareth before. “Love Hurts” has been in countless movies, and FM radio definitely is not afraid to play it. Nazareth has much more depth than just the two US radio hits. This one is one of my favorite tracks from them, simple and crushing. This is a great live rendition of the song.
Hands down one of the greatest Aerosmith albums is their classic Toys In The Attic. I love every song on this album, so there is nothing critical to say. This is the album that gave us “Sweet Emotion”, “Walk This Way”, and “Toys In The Attic”. Among the other great songs on this album is the track “Adam’s Apple”. Here is a live clip of the band from Texas Jam ’78 performing the song, a glimpse of Aerosmith at their explosive prime.
So I am a couple of days behind on my regular posts, so I am going to get you caught up with some great clips of songs that are featured in this weeks Noize Faktory episode, “When The Devil Comes A Callin'”. The first clip that we start with is the song that opens the show this week, AC/DC’s “Black Ice” the title track from their big comeback CD from a few years ago.
Black Ice was a great return for one of the world’s most popular bands. Whether you are an AC/DC fan or not their impact on music is undeniable.
Welcome back to another episode of The Noize Faktory!
Hour 1 kicks off with AC/DC’s “Black Ice” the title track from their last studio record, and it sets a great pace for the hour. We have all kinds of stuff for you including Vintage Trouble, The Beatles, Aerosmith and Nazareth to name a few. We also debut new music from a band called the Winery Dogs, which features Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan, and the amazing Richie Kotzen.
Hour 2 opens with “Damaged Soul” a brand new track from Black Sabbath, off of their new CD 13, I don’t think you will be disappointed with this one. And before the hour is up we also have a brand new one from Alice In Chains, “Breath On A Window” off of their new CD The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here. You also get some tunes from Wolfmother, The Virginmarys, Black Stone Cherry, and Megadeth.
Hour 3 wraps the show up this week in a strong fashion. Living Colour’s “Sacred Ground” opens the hour, and we hear some great tracks from Skid Row, The James Gang, Sweet, and DBA (Derringer, Bogert, Appice). And we have a great young band from Ft. Lauderdale called City Of Treason doing a hot rodded version of the Prince classic “When Doves Cry”.
