As for the rest of the playlist....
This show's Mandatory Maiden track is a cover version of the Golden Earring tune "Kill Me Ce Soir," the b-side to the "Holy Smoke" single. All the guys in Maiden are fans of the band, especially Steve Harris. When I saw Iron Maiden in Holland back in 1990, Steve was chatting backstage with Golden Earring guitarist George Kooymans, and afterwards he confessed to me that he always felt a bit of a 'I'm not worthy' feeling whenever he spoke with George.
Michael Schenker is one of my favorite guitarists so I was happy to play a request for MSG. The demo version of "Looking Out From Nowhere" is a rarity as it is only available on the 2009 re-issue /expanded version of the classic debut album.
I wanted to share an amazing cover of the Def Leppard song "Mirror Mirror" by Icarus Witch. It features Joe Lynn Turner on backing vocals and can be found on the band's "Songs For The Lost" album from 2007, as well as Joe's compilation "The Sessions". I am promised I'll have some new music from Icarus Witch in October.
"This Is The Life" is from a brand new album from Great White titled "Full Circle" which comes out on Friday. The album was produced by Michael Wagener who worked on their self-titled debut album back in 1984. Great White has gone through lots of changes over the years with a big legal battle over its name. This version features Mark Kendall, Michael Lardie, Audie Desbrow and Scott Snyder along with frontman Terry Ilous, who you may remember fronted a band called XYZ. This band is not to be confused with Jack Russell's Great White, which did the track "Blame It On The Night", which features original Great White frontman Jack Russell with Robby Lochner, Dan McNay, Tony Montana and Dicki Fliszar.
