#792: The Summer of ’93 – Live Album Explosion

So I commented on Mikey’s post and well here’s what I said…


Excellent post-Mikey!
Being that I was already working fulltime in 93 I scored all of these as they came out. By that, I mean KISS/MAIDEN/OZZY/VH/JOVI.

I got hosed on the VH not only the CD but I bought the crappy live video as well so they duped me out of a ton of cash. That album was a letdown man. Sterile sounding.

Maiden what can you say run the well dry with the soon to be x singer at the time(Air Raid Siren ) I bought em all I like the tracklisting on A Real Dead One. People griped about the sound on them but man it’s live and dry. I was ok with it.

Alive 3 I bought when it came out right away than a month or so later me and Tbone were in Winnipeg(to see McCartney) and at one of the record shops in the mall they had a deal if you bought Alive 3 you would get a poster of the cover.
I made Tbone buy it so I could get the poster haha.

Ozzy was a tough slug through. I was really looking forward to Live and loud as this was the tour I caught live in 92. It’s muddy sounding and I get tired off Ozzy going on and on about getting fucking crazy. Cool to hear it live in person but tiring after repeatedly on my CD player.

Jovi I bought just the studio portion. I recalled seeing the live disc as well but it was more pricey.

I basically purchased all of these twice as my brother was 10 years younger than me(Todd was 14 in 1993) so I would send him( since I was working) to the record store after he got out of school and get me the CD’s and I would pay for him to have the cassette version as that’s what he was into.
Todd was my mule hahaha. It would be great to get home after work and there was a new release waiting for me!

Man, this was a post in itself…haha

How’s that for an answer??

Better yet here’s some banter between Mikey and me in regards to the live albums specifically Van Halen!

Jeez, Deke you SHOULD post that. Why not?

Shit if you don’t, I should! LOL!

That Van Halen video…sucked. It just sucked. It was badly edited, Sammy wearing one shirt in one shot, and another shirt in the very same shot. I hated it and I do not own it.

A Real Dead One still doesn’t really turn me on much, but also thanks to later live albums like Rock In Rio.

Cheers Deke, you should make this a post.


Ha thanks, man. That live umm ok kinda live video sucked ass as I felt gypped after I purchased it and watched it once….
Tbone go duped too as he bought it so I felt better haha



Greatest Guest Post’s: Mike Ladano

Ok folk’s! Here’s one for the ages!  From Kitchener Ontario!  The one an only Mikey Ladano in which Mikey’s was the first blog I ever discovered about 5 years ago when I was surfing the internet and came across Mikey’s WordPress Site!

I commented on his Helix interview with Brian Vollmer and after that cruised his site and seen that he reviewed about 400 KISS Albums hahaha Twice over hahahaha… I thought this  guy’s whacked! 

Seriously though I was impressed and told him that and he laughed and told me he dated a girl from Tbay who took a bunch of his cassette tapes to our local dump here in Thunder Bay! So that has become a running gag at times over the years…

What has to go down as one of my all time fave blog reads was when Mikey reviewed Ace Frehleys 1988 Second Sighting release in which Mikey gave it a 4.25/5 review!

What really is a hoot is when the Drummer on this Frehley album(not telling you his name you need to read this post and find out for yourself!) commented on what was being said about his drumming….

I tagged Ladano as a Troublemaker in which he really isn’t but hell it’s fun and he  hasn’t told me to shut my pie hole about it…YET!

So as you will find out you never know who will show up and comment…. So kick back..read the post and the comments as well! 

Shit folks pour yourself a strong drink….and enjoy!
