Heavy Pettin'

Who here likes the band Heavy Pettin'? I don't recall us talking about them much, but they have some decent melodic tunes. My favorite is "Rock Ain't Dead." Maybe I just like the video - but it's good stuff. Hamie, the lead singer, sure as hell has a high voice. Seriously. High. The first time I heard this band, I sort of jumped a little.

Here's the clip for "Rock Ain't Dead:"

Here's "Victim's of Night:"

Wow. I couldn't make it thru a whole song. That voice is chalkboard scraping.

First vid Roxx. Second one Suxx! - song wise, that is. The "concept" is actually quite hilarious. Got all their stuff, listened to it all in about an hour then chucked it all off my iTunes except one: "Rock Ain't Dead". One is better than none. Killer!

May 1, 1984: Saw Motley Crue, Saxon and Heavy Pettin' at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago. They had a lot of these triple bills there back in the '80s. The Crue were just so mindblowingly fantastic (me being 16 years old helped too), so Heavy Pettin' seemed like a perfumed turd in comparison.
