Young Again

I was a junior in high school in 1985. I was deeply engulfed in the hair metal scene, even though later in life I'd be forced to shave all of mine off every 2 weeks. My favorite album at the time was Invasion of Your Privacy by Ratt. Lay It Down had just come out on MTV featuring a Playmate of the Year (Marianne Gravatte - and no I didn't need Google or Wikipedia to remember that name....splooge...) and there was no doubt in my mind that my favorite guitarist was Warren DeMartini. He nailed the riffs, the solos, and it all was just so perfectly put together.

Well, on my birthday this year, they released a new studio album. This song may seem bland to some, but to me it brings back so many memories of the summer of 1985 and 86. Note that former Quiet Riot guitarist Carlos Cavazo is playing in the band now. That can only mean good things.

Metal Monday

Simple riff. Executed masterfully. Great sounding live clip, and don't forget to listen to the sick double bass at 4:35 comprising the intro to Clayman.
