Rock Me!

greatwhite.jpgIt's finally Friday, glam fans. This has been a very long week for a myriad of reasons. So many bad things have happened...from funerals to nasty comments on this website, that I decided what I - what WE - needed was a video of a phenomenal live performance by an awesome glam band.


So far this week, I've been accused of not being a music fan and not knowing anything about glam. That's fine, everyone is entitled to an opinion. Still I beg to differ, and will point to the 40 plus hours each week I spend writing about new (and old) glam bands.


While I was at the Rocklahoma music festival, I was exceptionally lucky to meet the members of Great White. Even more exciting than our meeting was their electric performance on stage. Jack Russell's voice still amazes me, even after all these years.


Late last night I was clicking around YouTube. I wasn't looking for anything in particular, but I came across a clip of Great White performing live back in 1988. It's an extended version of "Rock Me" and Russell's voice is just as clean as a recording. Watch for yourself. Let me know what you think.

I don't know what those people are thinking, you are an expert at glam. I can tell that you love it with a passion, and that shows in your blogs. You are doing a great job with this site. Just keep doing what you are doing...

That is a great live video! Great White ROCKS!

Great White is awesome, thanks for the clip. The album 'Hooked' was what got me back into rock after several years into blues, exclusively.

It's plain to me that you're not a music fan, that's why you run a music blog. Morons.

One thought - this clip looks a whole lot better than their current live DVD, which is made up of two shows that were shot by a single, low quality camera. I'm astounded that it got released, I have amateur shot shows on DVD that I traded for, as well as pro shot shows, that look way better. A major disappointment, that DVD.
