MALICE was formed in 1981 and released two albums: In The Beginning (1985) and License To Kill (1986) and one EP Crazy In The Night (1989). They also were part – and the only band with two songs – of the first legendary “Metal Massacre”-Sampler in 1982. Malice toured in the US, Canada and Europe with bands like Alice Cooper, WASP and Slayer. Most memorable gig was in 1982 when Malice played in Los Angeles at the Troubador Club – support act was an unknown band called…….Metallica.

When I see Great White perform, I think about the joy of music. You see, the band enjoys playing live, and it shows in their performance. Mark Kendall and Michael Lardie are all smiles, and Terry Ilous owns the stage. Terry Ilous gives 110% every time he sings, and whether the fans like it or not, he has great chemistry with the band. This was the second time I saw Mr. Ilous front Great White, and both times the band has put on a great performance.
Because of the botched start times at M3, Great White only got to play five songs. Their set consisted of “Big Goodbye”, “Lady Red Light”, “Save Your Love”, “Rock Me”
and “One Bitten Twice Shy”. I wish they could have played longer, but I enjoyed their short set.
Beggars and Thieves have released a new video “Innocence” in support of their latest album, We Are The Brokenhearted. Check it out!
