Welcome to a Monday. We’re those old fuckers that play those old heavy metal songs. METAL SHOP rolls out kick ass 80’s metal and hard rock 24/7.
 
All your favorites are always in the mix, including IRON MAIDEN, JUDAS PRIEST, METALLICA, DIO, MÖTLEY CRÜE, MEGADETH, QUEENSRŸCHE, SCORPIONS, RATT, SLAYER, and more.
 
Listen also for the new ANTHRAX… ‘Evil Twin’ is coming up soon. The new album ‘For All Kings’ is excellent and cracked the U.S. Top 10 in its first week of release to land at position No. 9 on The Billboard 200 chart.
 
In a recent interview with vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza of San Francisco Bay Area thrash metal veterans EXODUS, he said “we’re not considered one of the [so-called] “Big Four” [of 1980s thrash metal, which consists of METALLICA, SLAYER, MEGADETH and ANTHRAX], and I hate that phrase. METALLICA is by far the biggest band in the world, so to put the other three in that category? No disrespect to MEGADETH, ANTHRAX or SLAYER; I love all of those bands, but I lived in the Bay Area when metal was being born, and everybody wanted to be like EXODUS. That goes from POSSESSED, LEGACY, DEATH ANGEL. It was not necessarily METALLICA, it was EXODUS. So, to me, that was the band that innovated and started it out.”
 
Checkout this video an IRON MAIDEN fan uploaded of the official and bootleg merchandise stands at the band’s March 3rd concert at Palacio De Los Deportes in Mexico City. METAL SHOP’s Ralph Cartel noted that in Las Vegas, the official merchandise booth was out of control. In Mexico though, not a soul is buying a t-shirt inside the venue but if you go outside it’s a whole different story.
 
Former ACCEPT singer Udo Dirkschneider is currently on tour where he is performing ACCEPT songs one last time before he closes the chapter for good, saying “I wanna close, like a book, and say, ‘Okay, that’s it. I read it.’ Sometimes you have to come to an end with something. I wanna close up everything with ACCEPT. Click Here to read more and see video footage from Friday’s show in Jyväskylä, Finland.
 
Happy Birthday to Linda Jarota listening to METAL SHOP in Pennsylvania, Chris Hiles listening in Washington State, Tony Nicholl listening in the U.K., and Jorge Zorrilla Diaz listening in Peru.
 
Have a good one all and stay dry out there.

Yes, it’s Friday and time to ‘March Fourth’ to the weekend… think about that one if you need to 🙂
 
Seems everyone today is talking about Donald Trump defending the size of his willie during last night’s Republican presidential debate. Just for the record, I have small hands, which I have been told means I am a creative person, and if something else must be small, “I guarantee you there’s no problem. I guarantee.” 🙂
 
According to The Pulse Of Radio, OZZY OSBOURNE’s wife and manager, Sharon Osbourne, was discussing recent scandals involving nannies on “The Talk” earlier this week when she revealed that she had caught Ozzy in bed with a couple of them in the past, saying she had caught two nannies in compromising positions with the Prince Of Darkness at “different times,” and adding that Ozzy was “out of his mind” on drugs at the time. Sharon said she finally hired a “manny” named “Big Dave.” Poor Ozzy.
 
METALLICA Drummer Lars Ulrich held an event, titled ‘A night with Lars Ulrich and Friends’ at UC Berkeley in California the other night. Not much to report there, but some of the comments on Facebook were a little nuts, including this one “metallica you disappointed fans long enough your keep letting fans think you are working on on new music and fail us. megadeth is miles ahead of you I bet dave mustaine is laughing to the bank,” and this one “Jassons new band Newsted is way better than Meatllica .. They get of all there good players. And keep what they have right now , that stinks.” My head is spinning, but ‘Meatllica’ sounds delicious.
 
Happy Birthday to former Metallica Bassist Jason Newsted. He turns 53 today. Click Here for this great video of Newsted singing ‘Seek and Destroy’ live in 1992.
 
ACCEPT released their 6th studio album “Metal Heart” today in 1985. Although critically panned at the time, today Metal Heart is often considered by fans as one of the band’s best records. Former singer Udo Dirkschneider remembers the Breaker through Metal Heart era as the time when the band got along best together.
 
Today in 1983, THIN LIZZY released their final studio album, “Thunder and Lightning.” Two years earlier, band leader Phil Lynott brought in guitarist John Sykes to give the band a heavier sound (ie, “Cold Sweat”). Lynott’s drug problems were too much though to keep Thin Lizzy going and he died three years later, but oh, what might have been.
 
That’s a wrap. Crank the 80’s metal with METAL SHOP and have a kick ass weekend.
