Did anyone see the Monsters of Rock tour back in the late 80s?  Kingdom Come, Dokken, Metallica, Scorpions and Van Halen.  Excellent concert...Scorpions stole the show in my opinion.

I saw the Scorps soon after their Animal Magnetism album came out....which by the way had a cover design done by Storm Thorgerson, the same guy who designed DSOTM and numerous other Pink Floyd album covers.

 

Anyways, the Scorps were the opening band for someone for whom I can't recall now.

 

I also saw Van Halen in the early 80's as well....might have been for their 1984 album, problem was, they sucked balls!

I was never a big fan of Van Halen but I loved Eddie's playing. It was DLR that killed the show. He was terrible and a complete a-hole during the show. It really turned me off of them.

What makes me feel old is remembering hearing all of the popular tunes in the 60s when they first charted, or hearing the local deejay describing Riders on the Storm as the Doors' "comeback effort" (same thing with some Bee Gees stuff pre-SNF). Or even Elvis' "comeback" effort before he died, plus the stuff that was released soon after. Or someone in my art class in school, announcing the death of Janis Joplin. Gawd I was so young....

 

Being Canajan (eh?) we thought the Guess Who were rock gods, but of course BTO as well, and April Wine I think defined for Canadians what an arena band should be -- everything from hard rocking numbers to ballads. Did you know that Randy Bachman was a big part of the Guess Who through their early breakthrough successes, but decided on his own to leave and start up BTO? BTO was Brave Belt before Turner came along and added his more hard driving edge to their sound. Randy and Burton still tour from time to time together...

 

I too have seen J Geils, and the Bee Gees, Tom Petty (twice), 38 Special (twice), the Who, the Police and many others. The best so far was in 2008 an outdoor concert at Magnetic Hill in Moncton, NB (Canada) -- got there in time for John Fogarty (who was incredible, and did every CCR tune but no solo stuff) and the headliners -- The Eagles, who have amazing harmonies even to this day! There was even solo stuff from Henley and Walsh, but sadly none from Frey.

If by some odd chance my nattering was useful -- that's great, glad to help. But if it actually solved your issue, then please mark my solution as accepted :smileyhappy:

Oh and here's something I never knew until recently. House of the Rising Sun? The Animals? That was originally a swing tune from the 40s 9and may even be older than that but I am not sure)!

A young Andy Griffith (of Mayberry fame) covered it before the Animals did actually.

I thought it was Bob Dylan.  But maybe he got it from somewhere else too.  I know he sings it "...many a poor girl..." instead of boy, weird.

 

As for Randy Bachman, I got my introduction to him on CBC radio when I came to Canada a few years back.  Ever listen to 'The Vinyl Tap'?  Then I got tired intrigued by all his name-dropping and I had to look him up on Wikipedia.  I think he sounds much younger than he is!


Credit where credit is due! Give kudos or accept as solution whenever you can.

Nope never heard of The Vinyl Tap. Sadly, I haven't heard much of the Tragically Hip either. It's mostly due to me being a Florida resident since 1982.

 

I have seen where they tour as Bachman Cummings, and as a form of the Guess Who. I remember when the band was singing Shakin' All Over. Or who remembers The Sound of a Dropping Pin?
