What is metal without riffs? Come to think of it, what’s rock and roll without riffs?
Back in the day, the big debate was always who’s the best guitarist in the world? The two main choices back when I was growing up? Eddie Van Halen and Randy Rhoads.
Last year, a number of classic metal albums hit their 25th anniversary, including Metallica’s Master of Puppets, Slayer’s Reign in Blood, and Megadeth’s Peace Sells.
When Phil Lynott, the legendary frontman of Thin Lizzy, passed away on January 4, 1986, it was a rock n' roll tragedy similar to when we lost Randy Rhoads in the sense that he never lived to see Lizzy get their due.
