Hello AR,
Only 40? - you're just a boy!
I was wondering if you like The Dictators. They're from New York City. They were signed to Columbia records, were produced by Sandy Pearlman & Murray Krugman and have an outstanding virtuoso lead guitarist. Sounds familiar...

Hi Titus
I've read about The Dictators but never heard their music. I know about Ross and the BOC producers of course...

Saw Riot in 1980 at the first (and best?) Monsters of Rock festival at Castle Donington. I attended the first seven!

How about...

Great quality recording of this fantastic band. If you are unfamiliar with them, I would describe their music as being somewhere between AC/DC & the Ramones. Hard rockin' garage/punk/metal with blistering lead guitar from Ross the Boss who went on to form Shakin' Street & later Man-O-War. He has recently been working with Albert Bouchard's Brain Surgeons.
Covers included

Wow, you've seen a lot of Monsters man :) Great memories you must have, when are you starting a blog to tell them?
I'll be happy to help out if you need assistance.
Thanks for the Dictators, I've heard two Shakin Street albums and I think I have a boot from them but low quality, I'll have to check my archives.
Cheers

Thanks for the Riot, Great band, I have often wondered why they never made it big, Saw them often back east way back in the day and they were always great.
