Well, I guess it either means I have good taste or that I am very old!

:D Funny you guys should mention Budgie

I`ve just taken delivery of "Power Supply" [ i think its the first album feat John Thomas on guitar ]
I saw Budgie support Gillian at the Hammy Odean in about 82/83 i think. Great performance really gave gillian a run for the money. The Allman Brothers "Live At The Fillimore" is classic, never get tired of it.

New to My list is:

Miss Crazy - Miss Crazy [ its been released here in the UK at last ! ]
Budgie - Power Supply
Johnny A - Sometime Tuesday Morning - Get Inside
Brother Fire Tribe - False Metal
Free - Fire & Water
Rose Tattoo - Rose Tattoo

 :D  8)
God I could do with a Gin & Tonic !

Can't be the latter since I'm sure I'm not old (though others might disagree ;)) ....

Today I am listening to:

MD.45 - The Craving

Original version, not the remaster on which Dave Mustaine apparently "couldn't find" Lee Ving's vocal tracks!

I've really been getting into Free and Bad Company over the past few weeks. Paul Rodgers has to be one of the best rock singers ever..

Cant get The Hunter outta my head, such a good song and I must learn it soon.

Dont worry, I think I prefer Queen with Paul aswell :P Just not a fan of Freddies voice, gets really annoying.. Then again I'm not a big fan of Queen :)

I think Paul Rodgers and Free (and all that mob) are severely underrated, perhaps more so in the US than in the UK, but underrated nonetheless.  Like, yeah, I heard "All Right Now" all the time on classic rock radio in the States as a kid, and that's a great song of course, but that's all you really run into.  

I mean, Zeppelin remain huge in the States compared to the UK in my experience (I was in Colorado last year and walked into a supermarket where I heard "Custard Pie" playing on the store PA!).  Where's the Free?

Not until I started going to Gov't Mule gigs did I start getting the sense that there was more to Free than just "All Right Now" (the Mule covered "Mr. Big" often live, and on their first studio album,and the did very Free-influenced versions of "The Hunter".  Then I ran out and got a Free compilation, and have been slowly digging deeper since.  I really want to see that DVD that PhilKing mentioned!  That's gotta be great.

It's really a shame that Free imploded like they did, since I think they were really poised to go places.  Bad Company is pretty respectable, though they were clearly in a bit of trouble towards the end before Paul quit (and though the later, reconstituted version had respectable commercial succcess, they didn't really kick a lot of arses IMO).  The Firm ... never really got anywhere, somehow.  

As for Rodgers himself, he's still in great shape and has a great voice.  As happy as I am for him for his gig with Queen, I can't help feeling it's a bit of an underachievement.  I think the man needs collaborative partners and a ripping guitarist, and though Queen to a large degree provide those, I'm not sure they provide them in such a way that really play to his strengths.  Hey, wait, maybe he should team up with Audley Freed (ex-Cry of Love, ex-Black Crowes)?  He's just the right kind of guitarist to work with Rodgers, IMO.

Bloody hell, I'd forgotten all about them!  Saw 'em supporting Dio in 1983(?).  I think I liked Save Your Prayers with Danny Vaughn best, even though the original lineup was a lot more rock'n'roll.

Wasn't there also a self-titled second album, with Neil Shepherd on guitar?
