Happy New Year 2023!

Hells Bells at their usual greatness

First, let me wish everyone out there a very happy and prosperous 2023. I won’t reflect too much on 2022 though a lot happened. While I don’t like being a prophet of doom, I can’t help thinking that we will see more of our beloved rock stars from our youth leaving us to go to that great gig in the sky. We had quite a few leave us this past year and at the end, two big sports stars, Franco Harris and Pele. That’s the bad stuff out of the way.

Well, not totally, because with Stone closing down his Metal Odyssey blog, I fear that others might be following suit. It seems that the traffic has decreased. But I can assure you that I will keep posting until I have covered every relevant album, event and gig up to the end of 1989. There is still more to tell about heavy metal’s golden decade. That leads me to my next point. Looking at my list for albums of 1988, the next one is AC/DC’s “Blow Up Your Video.” I was going to delay that album because those of you who have followed me for some time know that I usually post AC/DC albums in line with going to see the tribute band Hell’s Bells. However, looking at their website, Hell’s Bells aren’t scheduled to come to town until September and it’s most likely that I will already be into 1989 by then. Therefore, “Blow Up Your Video” will be the next album I will post about.

This leads me to my New Year’s resolution. That is to go and see at least one live gig this year, even if it is only seeing Hell’s Bells in September. Due to Covid and other distractions, I have only been to one live gig since 2019, so I definitely need to see some live music.

So, it leads me to again wish everyone a Happy New Year!

  5. Happy New Year! I have seen a couple new posts at Metal Odyssey, so maybe he isn’t completely done…or is it just run out of what he had already written.
