The guy (Ian Hatton) did some touring with Paul Rodgers (not sure if they recorded anything) and Robert Plant's Honeydrippers. Recently he recorded an Ep with some chick named Katrina Chester, but not sure what kind of music it is. He also was on a tribute to Muddy waters CD back in the 90's.

Hey iron, I have a problem that I need your help with. Ive consulted many websites and found that joe holmes recorded the visual lies album with lizzy borden in 87 or 88. Gene allen is supposedly the other guitarist. Now is joe doing lead or gene? Im just confused as to whose solos Im hearing but it sounds like joe. Any help is much appreciated. Thx. :)

Sorry to say, it's hard to tell when you have a two -guitarist band and both guys play rhythm and lead. (Priest have given the solos breakdown before though.) I don't have "Visual Lies", but I have the video from the live "Murderous Metal Road Show" so I'd probably be able to pick out some solos from Gene Allen as compared to Joe Holmes if I heard it.

Ironface, your wealth of knowledge is impressive. I've got a legit Ozzy question, then a couple "Stump the Iron" queries:

1. In the early/mid 80s after Randy passed, Ozzy shaved his head at some point. My friend saw him live in New Orleans on that tour (Diary? Speak?) and Ozzy came out wearing a wig and said he let his hair down in the French Quarter the previous night then tossed the wig in the crowd. Was this part of his regular act for a period of time on that tour, or was the head-shaving incident really something that occurred at the New Orleans tour stop? If it was ongoing, how long did he keep the head shaved and do the wig bit?

Now the stumpers:

2. The Scorpions drummer released a solo album in the 80s. What was the name of it and who were some of the other musicians on that album?

3. This is more recent but it has ties to Zakk and to the 80s, so here goes: Black Label Society's drummer for the past several years, Craig, is the younger brother of what 80's heavy metal guitarist? Name the guitarist and the band.

!). Ozzy got drunk and shaved his head, allegedly in New Orleans. He didn't have many gigs lined up after that and so the wig thing was only a one-off I think. When SOTD was recorded Ozzy hair was up to crew cut level and was short through the entire "SOTD" tour (aka Jake's breaking in tour).

2) Scorps drummer Herman Rarebell did a couple solo albums, but the one you're likely asking about was called "Herman Ze German". Some of the guys that played on it were: Don Dokken, Juan Croucier, Bobby Blotzer, Steve Marriott and Jack Russell. His other solo album was "Nip In The Bud".

3). Steve Blaze-Lillian Axe

Ironface never ceases to amaze....thanks for the Ozzy info. My friend always swore that Ozzy's scalp looked all uneven and like it was not a "professional" shave job which led him to believe he really did do it in a drunken stupor in New Orleans.

I have looked for the old "Herman Ze German" release in recent years hoping to find it was re-released on CD in Germany or something but never found it. Alas, I'll have to stick to my vinyl copy.

And yes, Stevie Blaze, also known to his former grammar school classmates (such as me) as Steven Nunenmacher, is the older brother of Craig Nunenmacher. Steve hated changing his name -- he thought it sounded really stupid, but MCA required it as part of their first recording contract. Apparently they had dreams of marketing him as the next guitar god...

Nothing gets by Ironface!!

I was wondering, who played rhythm for Metallica while James was recovering from his burns on the GNR tour?

John Marshall, Kirk's old roomate and ex-Metallica guitar tech. He joined Metal Church in 89 too. John also played rhythm guitar for James when he first broke his arm in 86 (for the Europen tour with Anthrax). First night James get's out of his cast and back on rhythm guitar was Cliff's last gig.

There is a boot available of John Marshall playing and James just doing vocals. James is either (a) really drunk, or (b) totally wasted on pain medication. Possibly the worst vocal performance I've ever heard by him.

Just Google "Stryper". The very first return is:

http://www.google.com/musica?aid=PBIVNqDtq0K&oi=musicr

The second is the official Stryper site. I became a fan of sorts many years ago because of this incredibly hot girl in my college biology class. She was a fan and would talk and witness to me. I would listen to whatever she had to say too. My intentions were way less than honorable as you might imagine.

:D

About the most comprehensive music web site out there for any band in any genre of music is http://www.allmusic.com

I use it all the time for checking album releases, track listings, biographis of bands, reviews of albums, etc.

Hey Iron,

The song "Hungry for heaven" by Dio had an almost identical intro guitar riff, to which mildy successful UK chart single in the late 70's by the band "The Sweet" :?:

Sounds like somebody else tring to "stump the Iron" with an "ALMOST identical intro guitar riff" quiz. :lol: Sorry, that doesn't qualify for my knowledge and I'm not a Sweet fan at all. Ask me something you WANT to know. :wink: btw-that riff was so cliche' it could qualify as "almost" identical to alot of other band's riffs. :lol:

I'll throw in some extra bs on this one. :lol: When Slayer formed in 1982, the name Dragonslayer was considered, but they ended up using Slayer instead. Kerry King and Tom Araya had been in a band together previously (the name escapes me at the moment) and they got Jeff Hanneman and lastly Dave Lombardo on board. They were playing all cover tunes (Priest, Leppard, Maiden, Accept) until, as legend (and Lars Ulrich. :lol: ) has it, they opened up on a 4 band bill for early Metallica (w/Mustaine)and then decided to go with the thrash/speed metal style.In 83 another band calling itself Slayer (out of Texas) released an EP called "Prepare To Die" and Slayer ended up suing them over the name and won.

That would be Mable Gable and Beatrice Carr, the elderly grandmothers of the Rough Cutt boys.

Extra super bonus trivia: Did you know Rough Cut got their name from an unforunate incident with a mohel? :lol:

Ok, now you know why it's "Ask Ironface" and not "Ask Cableguyxx" :lol: I don't know what the hell I'm talking about \:D/

Correct, it's Goldy, though it's mispelled alot, just as Randy's last name was.

You want me to tell you what guitarist is about to put out a new CD? :?
You must be joking. :lol: This is a trivia thread, not a up to the minute news center (try blabbermouth.net). There's probably 1000 guitarists about to put out a new CD.

Next!
