THE INDUCTION OF TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS AND THE TALKING HEADS IN THE RRHOF

LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES-MARCH 18, 2019… IT WAS 17 YEARS AGO TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS WERE INDUCTED INTO THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME. THE CLASS OF 2002 ALSO INCLUDED THE TALKING HEADS.

THE PERFORMANCE FROM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS MARKED THE LAST TIME BASSIST HOWIE EPSTEIN WOULD PUBLICLY PLAY WITH THE BAND. HE WAS IN HORRIBLE SHAPE DUE TO A HEROIN ADDICTION AND WOULD DIE A YEAR LATER. IT WAS ALSO THE FIRST AND LAST TIME STAN LYNCH PLAYED WITH THE BAND SINCE HE LEFT THE GROUP IN 1994.

THE TALKING HEADS WERE INDUCTED AND DAVID BYRNE ACTUALLY LIFTED HIS PERSONAL EMBARGO ON A TALKING HEADS REUNION. HE HAD TURNED DOWN MEGA MILLION DOLLAR OFFERS IN THE PAST TO GET BACK TOGETHER WITH THE GROUP, BUT MADE THIS ONE EXCEPTION FOR THE INDUCTION CEREMONY, AND THE GROUP KILLED IT.

VAN HALEN III

LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES-MARCH 17, 2019…IT WAS ST. PATRICK’S DAY 1998

AND VAN HALEN LAID A TURD. IT WAS THE BAND’S ONLY STUDIO ALBUM TO FEATURE SINGER GARY CHERONE, AND THE LAST VAN HALEN ALBUM TO BOAST MICHAEL ANTHONY. AFTER THIS ALBUM ANTHONY WAS REPLACED BY EDDIE’S SON WOLFGANG.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE BAND’S CAREER, A RECORD FROM VAN HALEN WAS WIDELY PANNED AND FAILED TO CATCH ON COMMERCIALLY. IN MY OPINION, FANS WEREN’T WILLING TO BUY THE VAN HALEN BROTHERS LINE OF B.S. THAT THEIR NEW SINGER WAS AMAZING, AND THEIR LAST SINGER SUCKED.

THEY DID THIS TWICE, WHEN ROTH LEFT, AND THEN WHEN SAMMY HAGAR LEFT. IN MY OPINION, THE VAN HALEN BROTHERS CLEARLY UNDERESTIMATED SAMMY HAGAR’S POPULARITY. KEEP IN MIND THE 4 PREVIOUS STUDIO ALBUMS WITH SAMMY HAGAR SOLD 16 MILLION COPIES.

VAN HALEN III SOLD ONLY 500,000 COPIES IN THE U.S.A.

GARY CHERONE LEFT THE BAND, AND IT WOULD BE MORE THAN A DECADE BEFORE VAN HALEN RELEASE ANOTHER FULL LENGTH STUDIO ALBUM.

HERE’S THE FIRST SINGLE FROM THE ALBUM. FOR MANY OF YOU IT WILL BE THE FIRST TIME HEARING THE SONG !!

– YOU BETTER YOU BET WAS THE FIRST SINGLE FROM THE ALBUM; IT’S VIDEO WAS ONE OF THE FIRST VIDEOS ON MTV, AND WAS THE FIRST VIDEO TO BE REPEATED.

– ANOTHER TRICKY DAY WAS NEVER RELEASE AS A SINGLE, BUT STILL RANKED AS ONE OF THE HIGHEST PLAYED SONGS ON ROCK RADIO IN 1981

WHEN ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE AT A METALLICA CONCERT

LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES-MARCH 16, 2019…IT WAS 1992 AND METALLICA WAS HEADLINING A SHOW AT THE ORLANDO ARENA WHEN TROUBLE BROKE OUT. THE BAND DROVE THE CROWD INTO SUCH A FRENZY THAT OUT OF CONTROL FANS TRASHED THE BUILDING AND DANGLED AN USHER BY HIS ANKLES FROM A BALCONY.

 

THE BAND WAS CHARGED $38,000 FOR REPAIRS AND CLEAN UP TO THE ARENA.

 

HERE’S A FULL METALLICA CONCERT FROM THE 1992 WORLD TOUR. (PRO SHOT) GREAT QUALITY
