We are honored to have on the program this evening one of the greatest metal guitarists, K. K. Downing of the legendary Judas Priest. His riffs are instantly recognizable, and with Glenn Tipton he comprises one of the most devastating tandems in hard rock! We’ll be playing plenty of Priest music tonight, both studio and live material, as we talk to Downing about the band’s upcoming British Steel tour, the new disc which will be released in July, and more!
Of course, we’ll play your favorite songs from other hard rock legends as well, from Mötley Crüe to Black Sabbath to Quiet Riot to Bon Jovi. We’ve also got plenty of new stuff from Joetown, Coldspell, Black Robot, Milan Polak and Jennifer Batten. You don’t want to miss tonight’s episode!
Hard Rock Nights airs every Saturday night at 9 pm EDT on WMWX-FM in Cincinnati, which is simulcast on classxradio.com globally. Listen in for our interview with Downing and a ton of killer music!
Other than blonde hair and movie soundtracks I’m not sure King Kobra and Jean Beauvoir have much else in common but I felt compelled to share these videos with everyone this week. First off we have King Kobra with “Never Say Die (Iron Eagle)” from the Iron Eagle Soundtrack and their own “Thrill of A Lifetime” album. I would venture a guess this is King Kobra’s best known song.
“Feel The Heat” was first released on Sylvester Stallone’s “Cobra” soundtrack followed by Beauvoir’s own “Drums Along The Mohawk” album. Along with producing and writing for such groups as Kiss, the Ramones, the Pretenders, and John Waite, he has also fronted the bands Voodoo X and Crown of Thorns. Although he is not well known in the U.S. Beauvoir is a huge star in Europe and the rest of the world.
I am not sure how I missed this song the first time around, but better late than never.Brand New Sin’s “S.P.P.” is one kick ass tune.
