Thunder Rocks, Rules and Says Farewell

My Glam, how is it that I haven't mentioned Thunder before on this website? What a great, underrated band from the U.K.

A short primer is that the band formed around 1989 and signed with EMI. Their debut came out soon after - and became a big hit in their native land. The long and short of it is the band had some lineup changes, split, reformed and are about to embark on a farewell tour.

Here are some clips of the band. I think you'll agree - Thunder rules!


"She's So Fine"



Gimme Some Lovin'



Back Street Symphony

Definitely an awesome band.
I prefer she's so fine to the other songs.

Looks like a great band. Seems they are spliting in July, so no hopes of getting them for RGW

One of my all time favorites. Saw them live about 10 times in the past 20 years. Last time on April, 25th this year.

They split up once before and I hope they get bored again and do another reunion.

How have I never told you about these guys ? I discovered them through classic rock magazine, and they are awesome. There's a DVD of all their clips available, and at least two concert DVDs. Sadly, they are in the process of calling it quits, again. My favourite songs are the perennial 'dirty love', and higher ground, but they are pretty much all good.

Ya, great band. Kind of a bad company/paul rodgers feel to 'em.
