    So let’s climb aboard the way back machine and if you don’t know what the way back machine is it sucks to be you.
    Fans gather round and see the man , one of the fathers of metal when others were merely boys he was the man.

    I hoped you would ask that question bro. Just a few of the members will agree since most are well ….

    You know the way I found the Scorpions was in the import bins at Licorice Pizza.
    And Tokyo tapes was my first venture with this band. And I found it on 8-track, then as I have done with other bands went back through the catalog.
    Cheers

    Sounds good ,you found one of the best. I was lucky to know a guy in school who was like a metal guru. We both listened to Intrance the day it was released, a bit stoned I might add.

    for me, it was probably Light Out & Strangers in the Night. but, I listened to a lot of stuff, even the Prince Kahuju or whatever stuff...

    Based on the thread title, I figured we'd be moving through Kashmir...

    I used to go to Licorice Pizza all the time. I remember buying the 1st Black Sabbath Live At Last album, from the Berdoo store. They got the box in & I had them open it up right then & there... & snagged it...

    It was such a disappointment though...

    Sharon's Father released it, purposely to make the band look bad.

    Exactly , Page is great . He has so many riffs in every song and a huge body of work. He is quite popular. Uli is not popular in comparison. I do trust you analyzed the lead riff ? Really forget what you know about your perception of the guitar solo.

    I was a teenager in the 1980s, and at that point Zeppelin and Sabbath were about the only seventies heavy bands that were still really popular (By seventies I mean bands that were essentially done by 1980 or so, not bands that carried on into the 1980s). Uli was familiar to me in name only, I never really searched out any of his stuff.

    a lot of people don't like his '80s stuff. His vocals take an acquired taste...

    Oh my goodness Paul , we have been at many of the same shows and I followed Mike just like you did. Everyone who listened to Schenker will pick Lights Out and strangers for the win and I can’t complain but I thought you might be less inclined since you are so well versed. I am not picking songs or albums but that solo in 1978 is miles ahead of every guitar player, well for me. I never asked myself who I thought had prowess between the 2 it was always Uli. Mikes stuff is way more popular ergo pop. Lol

    I was pretty much a diehard Priest fanatic in the 80s (I even liked Turbo!), and didn't have much interest in seeking out other artists. There were a few others I really liked (Maiden, Scorps, Crue, Queensryche), but I wasn't nearly as diverse as some of the guys I knew. I found my "thing" and was happy staying there-especially when I found Priest's early, pre Hell Bent For Leather albums.

    That’s why you don’t know Sherman & Peabody , that is the source of the way back machine. Couple of things happened before 1980 , Ozzy left Sabbath and Uli left Scorpions. Scorpions gained a ton of fans and Uli kind of went in to the shadows.Away from mainstream.

    what I mean, is, that, those were my 1st listens to UFO, IIRC...

    I think Tokyo Tapes was my 1st listen to Scorp's...

    I was a total Zep head though...
