These boys used to go by the name THIN LIZZY. Phil Lynott was the founding member. lead singer, bassist and principal songwriter. and passed away in 1986. The band had been around since and when they were doing new material decided a new name was in order. They still do Thin Lizzy songs at shows though. the fans demand it.
If you know the band, you will recognize the music.
Rob Zombie and his guitarist John 5 appeared on That Metal Show recently promoting their new album, VENOMOUS RAT REGENERATION VENDOR, so I purchased it off Amazon. I got the CD, I remain old school in that vein, but taking advantage of their cloud service, I was listening to it just minutes after purchasing it. Every piece of music one buys from them is on their cloud service and ready to be listened to at any time. One can even make up a playlist from all music on the site. I’ve listened to the album twice since the purchase and quite like it. On the reviews on Amazon the five stars far outweigh all the rest, though there are some one stars.
Zombie combines his two loves again: heavy metal and horror movies. He even does a cover on this one. On the interview on That Metal Show, he explained that he’d never been in a cover band. White Zombie was his first band and they did original stuff only. Below are two personal favorites and the cover.
The gangnam stuff seems to be the latest rage. Or maybe I’m really out of the loop. It’s vaguely amusing.
Compare the one that started it all(I believe).
