The schedule for May…

If there’s one Sleaze Rock/Glam Metal (or whatever you want to call it) singer constantly overlooked by the masses, that’s Steve Whiteman.
Even the fans who were around in the mid80s (aka Glory Days) seem to ignore his presence. Man, does it piss me off!
You’ll hear them praising Cinderella or Mötley Crüe or … (pick any other band of the genre that emerged in the same period) but when you mention Kix as an important part of the scene, they get a particular expression on their faces – rather annoying I must say.
The “Oh yeah, I remember those guys” kind of look (nodding condescendingly), as if you brought up a second rate act in the discussion.
To make things more interesting (adding fuel to the fire according to others), I suggest a Steve Whiteman vs Tom Keifer comparison.
Stating my personal preference (in favour of the former of course) does the trick every single time.
From that point onwards, the whole thing becomes less of a conversation and more of a shouting contest.
“You can’t be serious” and “What the Hell are you talking about?” must be the most common *arguments*.

Mission accomplished: Next time, they’ll remember Kix for sure 😉

    Dear fella,
    Nice list! I will be waiting -especially- for these: “Pyromania”, Marty Friedman and Kix (for which I must confess, don’t know much about).
    Warm regards from Brazil.

    Greetings and congrats from Brazil.

    My favorite Kix track is “Don’t close your eyes”, I still remember the words and it’s been years since I heard it.
    Unfortunately my mom tossed my Kix – “Blow my fuse” CD ’cause she was mad at me 😆
    I’m absolutely glad you posted it – also grabbing the other Kix CDs.
    Big thanks!

    I totally agree with you on Kix. Very underrated.
    I met the guys in Great White once and they said the same thing. Jack Russell was friends with Steve and could sing “Don’t close your eyes” and sound EXACTLY like him!
    Anyways, I was wondering if sometime you could throw the Kix FLAX collection on iFile.it or Hulkfile sometime?
    You’re always much appreciated bro!
