JEFF AND TONY DISCUSS EVERYTHING THEY LOVE AND HATE ABOUT HARD ROCK AND HEAVY METAL.

TODAY'S SHOW:

The greatest sign of success for a band is to get a platinum album.  1,000,000 albums sold, it's a trophy you can't buy.  The next best thing is a gold album signifying 500,000 units sold.  Many kick ass bands never even came close, but a few have come agonizingly close but failed, like Y&T's 1984 classic 'In Rock We Trust'  450,000 copies sold, but still not good enough. Then there is Vinnie Vincent an important song writer on 3 KISS Albums that went Gold, but twice got close enough to smell one of his own.  VVI and Alls Systems Go sold 400K and 440K but failed to achieve the imortality a Gold record ensures. It separates the metal heroes from the soon to be 'just like the rest of us'. 

A Gold record is a sign of success but it can be a brief glimpse.  Ask the Bulletboys,Britney Fox, Dangerous Toys, Autograph, Kingdom Come (Platinum), Krokus (2 Gold), and believe it or not Trixter achieved Gold.  These bands may have gone Gold but they screwed themselves out of a chance to be on today's MORE ON METAL...

These bands that kicked ass, but didn't go Gold.  BLACK N BLUE,  EZO, HELIX, KEEL, KING KOBRA, JUNKYARD, ROXX GANG, VINNIE VINCENT, Y&T, FASTWAY, LOUDNESS, JUNKYARD, VINNIE VINCENT, AND MANY MORE...
