    Me twice. The third time, it was cancelled. Some biker dude broke Tortelvis' jaw with a bottle apparently. Or so we were told.

    You gotta love Led Zep, done reggae style with Elvis as the lead singer. Gimme a towel.

    The Claw!.. I've found that anyone who likes Dread Zepplin, The Who and Warbirds is automaticaly a good person.

    Although, I gotta say, I'm not crazy about Dread Zepplin's albums... It's all about the live show

    Well. I like to think of myself as a good person. And don't know if DZ qualifies me. But god those guys are talented.

    And Les and Cosimo, I too would have chosen most of your picks, but didn't want to pig pile. One that you guys mentioned that was a PRIME influence on my life, was Rush's first album. Even without Geddy Lee, man that one rocks!! Working Man and What're Doin' are kick***!

    Suffice to say… “Dark Side of the Moon” is so permeated into my DNA that I overlooked the mothersmilk that wrought my being.

    Actuallly, it was Neil Peart who wasnt with the band yet.. Original drummer John Rutsey, unwilling to tour, left the band after this album was released... Rutsey wrote some lyrics for the debut, but never submitted them to the band and some new lyrics had to be thrown together.... Rutsey's departure was pivotal for the band, as his replacement Neil Peart's distinctive drumming technique and flair for lyric writing proved to be crucial to the band's evolution as evidenced by their second album, Fly by Night...

    Classic listing there track... Pink Floyds Wish U Were Here is another that I listened to alot...

    "Welcome my son... Welcome, to the machine...."

    Ive got to go with black. These are the top 2 out of my favourite metal bands:

    AC/DC-Back in Black
    For a band to bounce back after losing such a great frontman and to record one of hard rock's classics/tributes in just two weeks is just phenomenal

    Metallica-Metallica
    This was the album that introduced me to Metallica and it just has some of their greatest songs on here>

    Gotta agree with u concerning Back In Black, as Brian Johnson filled the loss of Bon Scott decently, and created one of rocks greatest albums....

    However, the Metallica Black album to me was the beginning of the end for the bands decade of kicking my ass...

    I love 'Back in Black' 8) A great album.

    For me I guess it would be maybe 'Hot Space', Jazz, 'The Game' - Queen.

    1st 2 Blondie Albums and the 2 Shakespear's Sister album of the late 80's early 90's 8)

    That you are correct. As a die hard [​IMG] fan I love all there albums including there later stuff, but the "Black Album" was the beginning of the end for there thrash sound which they were the greatest at. The best albums by Metallica were Master of Puppets, Kill em All, Ride the Ligtening and And Justice for All...

    As of this week I am singing in a band again. It is going to be a lot of fun. We are only working on Cover Songs at the moment but my goal is to get eventually start doing our own songs (I have like a million Thrash songs influenced by Metallica written). At the moment we are doing For Whom the Bells Toll by Metallica and Thunderstruck by AC/DC.

    As for the albums that influenced me the most here they are:

    Metallica - Master of Puppets 1986
    [​IMG]

    Metallica - Kill Em All 1983
    [​IMG]

    Metallica - Ride The Lightning 1984
    [​IMG]

    Metallica - And Justice For All... 1988
    [​IMG]

    Iron Maiden - The Number of the Beast - 1982
    [​IMG]

    Megadeth - Peace Sells... But Who's Buying? 1986
    [​IMG]

    Iced Earth - Burnt Offerings 1995
    [​IMG]

    Slayer - Reign In Blood 1986
    [​IMG]

    Slayer - Seasons In The Abyss 1990
    [​IMG]

    Pink Floyd - The Wall 1979
    [​IMG]

    Good listing Adler... I would have added the other early Metallica, but after the first, I was hooked, therefore, the others were an automatic given...

    Master of Puppets for me was the greatest they did because it defined the genre of music and it is possibly the best Heavy Metal album ever written.
