Top Ten Stadium Rock (Channel 4, 19th February, 2000), a retrospective TV programme now so old it needs its own retrospective. In two parts!
We look at Bon Jovi’s foray into the Star Wars universe, and applaud Skid Row’s Sebastian Bach for being the most entertaining interviewee on this programme (although we fail to mention his stint in Gilmore Girls). Van Halen’s yin and yang of Dave and Eddie is examined, with a side order of Ned Flanders. Warning, contains a blisteringly hot take about their biggest hit.
Guns n’ Roses’ streetness and rawness is discussed along with Metallica’s rawness and streetness and we finish off with a discussion of Aerosmith, who are obviously the number one pick, despite some scathing criticism of a particular member of the band. We are (uncle) salty in this episode!
We also cover the distress of buying bad CDs and adventures in file sharing in the early 2000s - all music history is here! Ghost controversy! Tusk! Poison (and Poizon) update! Muppets! Genesis and their Slipperman! Recreating Memento with cut outs from Kerrang and Metal Hammer! And of course, more KISS nonsense.
Recorded 19th July 2023
