I agree. Pearcy was absolutely terrible.
I wasn't going quite that far. I think, for his style, he had his moments. But, listening to most of the live stuff from the past 2 years that's getting posted on youtube, he does usually sound terrible and it makes me wonder about how he ever managed to sound decent back then.
Ummm....he didn't. Most of the concertgoers were too drunk to care....lol

Again, for the kind of voice/style he has, he sounds decent here:

I only saw them once, at a little club in Cols., OH towards the end of summer '98. It wasn't great, but not absolutely terrible, either.

Here's one I'll bet you haven't heard yet - a 62 year-old Italian Monk Metalhead!!!

He Ain't Heavy, Italy's Metal Brother
MILAN (Reuters) - Dressed in his traditional brown robe, sandals and twirling the rope around his waist, 62-year old Friar Cesare Bonizzi is no ordinary heavy metal rocker.

But as guitarists around him grind out heavy notes, the long-white-bearded Capuchin, a former missionary in Ivory Coast, has no qualms bobbing his head and shouting lyrics about alcohol, sex, tobacco and life in general into his microphone.
Link to Full Story

Link to YouTube search: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_q ... type=&aq=f , but they mostly seem to be news videos. And YouTube is so slow, for me anyway, right now I got frustrated in looking for a true music video. If you find one, post it.

But you can see a bit of Friar Cesare Bonizzi in action here (another news story, but does have him "singing").

Wow. Foreigner was just on the NBC Today show.
Now, don't think that I've thought Foreigner is a great band.
But they only have 1 or 2 of the original band.
For me, it was cool to see the following guys on a widely-viewed show:

Vocals - Kelly Hansen (formerly of Hurricane)
Bass - Jeff Pilson (formerly of Dokken)

I know Jason Bonham, drummer (son of John "Bonzo" Bonham, drummer for Led Zeppelin), has been in the band, but I could not tell for sure if he was with them in this TV appearance.

Actually....yeah...

Funny thing about that is...

They had a different bassist the first couple of times we saw them. Then the thrid ( ?? ) time....my brother sees them hit the stage and he says " Holy S*IT!!!! That's P.J. Farley from Trixter!!! "

I have NO idea how he managed to recognize him....lmao

I kinda figured you would like that band. They'll have anew album out on the 22nd.

Most of you guys probably don't know anything about Alex Harvey. But it's about time you did.

The Sensational Alex Harvey Band - Framed Live 1974. The man is a genius. Take the time to watch the expressions on his face. He died much too young.

When the song plays, if the musician/band includes a pic, the pic shows up in the upper left corner of the player. But, it doesn't always show up immediately upon upload. I just checked and I guess it isn't showing up yet. :)

SongFacts.com - Song Meanings, Lyrics and Trivia.

Don't Fear The Reaper
Blue Oyster Cult's first hit, this was written by lead guitarist Donald Roeser, also known as Buck Dharma. He contributed his vocals to this track and also wrote their other Top 40 hit, "Burnin' For You."

This was rumored to be about suicide, but it actually deals with the inevitability of death and the belief that we should not fear it. When Dharma wrote it, he was thinking about what would happen if he died at a young age and if he would be reunited with loved ones in the afterlife. Dharma explained in a 1995 interview with College Music Journal: "I felt that I had just achieved some kind of resonance with the psychology of people when I came up with that, I was actually kind of appalled when I first realized that some people were seeing it as an advertisement for suicide or something that was not my intention at all. It is, like, not to be afraid of it (as opposed to actively bring it about). It's basically a love song where the love transcends the actual physical existence of the partners."

Because of the dark nature of this song, some people thought Blue Oyster Cult were a satanic band. Some even turned out to protest their concerts. (thanks, Mike - Mountlake Terrace, WA)

Some of the lyrics were inspired by Shakespeare's Romeo And Juliet. In Shakespeare's play, Romeo swallows poison when he believes Juliet is dead. Juliet responds by taking her own life. This led many people to believe the song was about suicide, but Dharma was using Romeo and Juliet as an example of a couple who had faith that they would be together after their death.

For the lines that begin, "40,000 men and women," Dharma was guessing at the number of people who died every day.

The album features vocals and songwriting from Patti Smith. She was keyboardist Allen Lanier's girlfriend at the time and had also contributed to one of BOC's previous albums, Secret Treaties.

A Saturday Night Live skit with Christopher Walken made fun of the extremely loud cowbell in this song. In the skit, the band would get upset when Will Ferrell would play the bell too loud, but Walken kept calling for "More Cowbell."

Another version of this was recorded for their 1988 album, Cult Classics.

This has been used in several horror movies, including Halloween, The Frighteners and Scream. It was also used in a very non-horror capacity in the party scene of the Disney movie Miracle, which is about the US Hockey team beating the USSR at the 1980 Olympic Games. (thanks, Jerry - Boston, MA)

This wasn't released as a single in the UK until 1978, where it became their only hit in England.

Stephen King quoted the lyrics to this song in his novel The Stand, in which 99.9% of the US population is killed by a manmade disease called "Superflu." It is also used in King's miniseries of the same name during a montage showing the corpses of those who had been killed by the disease. King often quotes songs in the beginning of his books. (thanks, Eric - Suffern, NY)

Ya they just released a live album but I wouldn't waste my money on it...really bad production quality for the recording. I'd rather pay the money to see them live...or get the DVD from the same performance which I hear the sound quality is really great on...guess the sound guy was asleep at the board.
