Thanks much! Nice upload for your two year anniversary. BTW, wish Rocket would bring back HRC.

AtticRock said...

Yeah, I'll never forget Rocket, apart from his cool taste in music with all those classic rock and metal bands from the 70's and 80's, he once did a post to promote my blogs and suddenly visitors were coming from everywhere. Soundaboard owes him much.
Buck's shirt is horrendous, it was the first thing that caught my attention when I watched this. Luckily their music is superb.

howardx said...

yeah its an excellent dvd, had no problems with it at all. much thanks. turns out my girlfriend is in the crowd!

Titus said...

Got it! It's a bit dark but the sound is good. I know from experience it will look better on my TV. Thanks AtticRock. As all Trekies wil know, Buck is wearing the ceremonial uniform of a Klingon ambassador.

howardx said...

bucks solo in "veteran" is fantastic!

Sorry for not bein' around more often...alas, I haven't that much spare time anymore because of a new job. I do however post a little over at AVAX, take a look here and grab anything you like:


Take it easy buddy, have fun...and a great weekend :-)

Cheers and all the best,


AtticRock said...

Hey Toxxy, hope all goes well with the new job, I'm glad you found some time to write a comment and be sure i'll be visiting your Avax space.


Rocket said...

Hey, AtticRock (Still think that's a cool name - in my Afterlife, I'll probably use it...)
Rocket here wishing you a great belated birthday - 2 years and still going strong! In Blog Years that's Amazing!
Just wanted to let YOU and your Readers know - I'm Re-Building Hear Rock City...
New URL:
Drop the hyphens from the old one and drop on by...

AtticRock said...

Rocket!! It's great to hear from you , knowing that you're fine and rocking in the free world again, and with fantastic news about the return of the barn :)
I'm still using a logo you made for me almost two years ago.
Cheers man!

Awesome concert! Thanks for posting this.

This was originally broadcast on MTV way back when...as a a matter of fact, I think they broadcast it live.

RepoUK said...

Any chance of a re-upload? I got parts 1 to 6 sometime ago.

Thanks, Gav.

Great to have this back up again. As many times as I saw BOC in S. Fla, I nissed this show. Quality's great for the time and song selection is excellent (always loved Joan Crawford).

Keep up the fantastic work, mate!
