Re: VHS tapes we still own and looking for an official DVD release to get rid of

The third show I have from Ozzy is the Black Sabbath show with Brad Gillis (Night Ranger) on guitar. Incredible show. I believe you can find the Brad Gillis show out there on DVD, but not the other two. I have not looked as I've transferred those to DVD, but I know you can get the Brad Gillis show ...

Re: So is anyone else in a musical rut this year besides me ?

If I was deep into prog metal, I would probably agree with you. I can't think of much in that mold that has caught my interest at all. However, I'm not the most metal of people anyway, so I've found plenty of stuff in other genres to enjoy. In fact, while there are more downright awful releases thi...
