M3 Band Announcement - Monday

Posted on Monday, January 18, 2010 at 11:41AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments10 Comments
All this week, 98 Rock in Baltimore is supposed to announce a band playing the 2010 installment of the M3 Festival in Columbia, Maryland at the Merriweather Post Pavilion. On Friday, it was announced the festival would be June 19 and that Kix is slated to perform. Today, 98 Rock just confirmed Vince Neil. Gotta admit, that one came out of left field for me, but ok. I love me some Motley Crue, so it's all good.


You can always check the lineup on the my message board. Tomorrow, I'll add the next band(s) confirmed

Whoa! No, no, no! You're invited but your friends can't come!

So far so good!

p.s. And I'm with ya, KixRules, dude! I was raised on farmland by an old couple in Maryland. And I'm with the Slaughter freak. Slaughter would be a great addition. Of course, I wish they'd throw in some other stuff like Wolfmother, Crash Diet, Gunfire 76, etc., etc. and not just let it be literally 80's. As far as 80's go, though, how about adding bands like Junkyard, Shotgun Messiah or Pretty Boy Floyd to the bill, for example? Not as headliners, per se, but on the bill, nevertheless. Y'know, so it's somebody different added to the bill than the same bands from last year, like they've done here with Vince. Also, wouldn't it be great if Vince performed his first album in it's entirety? And don't you wish he'd get Steve Stevens in on it, since he was the guitarist for that album and tour? Check out Neil and Stevens on YouTube of footage from that tour. And how come Parnell won't cave and rejoin the band he founded, Kix? And why do I write p.s.'s longer than my comments? (Well, sometimes, hahaha!!!)...

Thanks Metalboy, always good to hear from someone that also likes Slaughter and dosen't always bash them. My hometown is Ellicott City, Maryland right next to Columbia, Maryland where M3 Festival is held. Of course love KIX they will be the big draw at M3 Festival. Agree love to see them change it up a bit like Crash Diet as well.

Dude, Slaughter is one of the killerest vocalz of our Glam Planet, easily in my Top !0 of the genre. On the heels of virtually frying out "Stick It To Ya", I recently picked up "The Wild Life" on Amazon.

I also got the "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" Soundtrack so I could get the coolio non-lp cut, "Shout It Out". "Up All Night" is among my Top 20 Glam Metal faves of all time!

But it is his singing when he was in Vinnie Vincent Invasion that really takes my head off! "Love Kills" off the "All Systems Go" album is just unreal! That cut was also from one of the Freddy flix of the "Nightmare On Elm Street" Series, which I think might be "The Dream Master" but you gotta double check me on that.

Anywho, of course Vinnie just plain burns and Slaughter just sings his guts out on the entire record. A total killer masterpiece of an album from the first bloody note to the last!

Ya' got the "All Systems Go" CD great!! VVI was awesome, but kind of glad Vinnie seemed.?.? to screw over Mark and and Dana and they went out and formed Slaughter, but I'm glad they did.You are correct on all accounts about "Love Kills." Hope to meet you and have a beer at M(3) Rock Festival~take care.

I hope KEEL returns. I was about the only person there with a KEEL shirt on. Great show all around!

Yeah! Keel! Now there's a killer Roxxstar of the highest order!

Here's where ya got the leader front and center. If he's together, it would be killer, no matter who he's got playin' with him.

True, he misses some notes here and there, but he's the real deal.

Did you know that Steeler album still stands as the best selling Indy Metal Album of all time?!

And he obviously has a great track record when it comes to identifing playerz for his band. Yngwie, anyone?!

My ex-lead guitarist sez Keel was just OK when he saw him at M3 last year, but I wasn't there. I believe you, cuz my ex-lead is a little passive aggressive when it comes to judging bands I like. Geez, you should here him taunt me about my lifelong fave football team, the New York Jets. (Yep, that was me flyin' in formation with the Blue Angels over the stadium that last home game).

Anyway, I think he said there were sound probz, too. Were there, Keel Fan? And can anyone that was there vouch for our rabid Keel Fan, here. Fletch? Hahaha!!! Anyone else?

Anywayz, I'd be into it if Keel was there.

Let's hope it's not "Easier Said Than Done", and they are there to play that killer tune, plus all his other Steeler and Keel Klassix!

We must all go to M3 and exercize our "Right To Rock"!

I saw KEEL for the 1st time in '87...my very first concert. They opened for Bon Jovi. I can still remember the intro to United Nations...and that was it for me. I went out and bought all the KEEL tapes I could find...Steeler included.

I had waited 22 years to see them again and I'm sure being a metal fan you can appreciate my excitement. To me, it doesn't matter if they sounded good or not. They were/are my band and to see them live after all these years was just incredible.

As if seeing them perform wasn't enough, I made my way back stage and met all of the guys..got pics and autographs too. They were all really nice and truly appreciate the fact that there are people like us out there that still love this genre and still want to see them play. Someone from the KEEL camp even snapped a pic of me and my buddy and posted it on the KEEL reunion site.

It was just an unbelievable experience...one that I will never forget and am just so grateful for it.

If there were sound problems, I really couldn't say. I was too busy singing along. I don't know if a lot of people really knew who they were but the crowd was pretty thick and at least those around me seemed to really enjoy it.

For the most part, whether any of these bands sound good or not, I respect that they are still out there. Still doing what they do and not bending over to appeal to what's current...and sticking to their guns...and doing what we fans want them to do. Play the songs we know and grew up with...and just be who they are.

KEEL is my band...always has been...always will be and I hope to see them again. If I don't...I'll have that great memory of a warm day in May in 2009 when I was proud to be loud.
