Great track, indeed. It got a mention here a few days ago.

This album came out 38 years ago? Oye. Admittedly, I was a little anti-Skid Row when the first album came out....too much airplay, I was playing more metal and punk at the time, yada yada....but I listened to them a lil bit more over the years, and in particular after their second record came out. I am a fan, I guess you'd say, of Sebastian Bach (Bierk) though. He's a guy I'd like to sit down with for a while and just rap about whatever.

Yeah, their second album was overall a much heavier sounding record. Not sure I've ever listened to effort #3.

Small personal note on Orlas King. I used to work at the New Albany CC and Orlas came in there a few times. Just a super nice, friendly guy.

Spot on there, JCLP. Q-FM96 in Columbus was basically THE place where I learned about rock music in the late '70s and early '80s. And they had some cool programming like 'Psychedelic Sunday' where I learned about 60s rock that wasn't the Beatles, Beach Boys, Rolling Stones, etc. And of course the Doctor Demento show. Used to have a dozen or so cassette tapes of stuff I recorded off the radio, and that was the place where I heard this song or that song, which in turn got me to go out and buy the albums. And I know they played a lot of Pink Floyd, back then as well.

Back when I was a teen though I really didn't like Pink that much, although I did know some stuff off of The Wall. Got into them more in my '20s and '30s although would still consider myself a fringe fan. As for Animals, I'm not sure I've ever listened to the album. It did remind me of this one though. Note: The drummer in this performance is from Columbus, Ahia.

Yeah, the Bon Jovi chick factor didn't hurt but I found out pretty quickly that metal and punk chicks were a lot more 'interesting'.

Hehe...actually, their first two albums were pretty big and got tons of radio and MTV airplay. But yeah, that was the first time I'd had front row seats and it was pretty cool for this 16 year old.

I'll still spin some Bon Jovi now and then, and they were very good at what they were. I saw them open for Ratt at the Ohio Center supporting their 7800 Fahrenheit record. Had front row center seats which was pretty memorable. Runaway is a pretty good jam, and Roulette and She Don't Know Me are pretty decent.
