Wasp? For real? Their album Crimson Idol is the best metal concept album since Operation Mindcrime.

I went to the Poison concert in Adelaide back in the day and it was interesting. The guitar solo was the worst I have ever seen CC sucked.
Yep, CC was the worst guitar player i have ever seen play with a major band....dreadful.

Stryper!!!! By a mile.

Anyway. Lots of good 80s stuff. Only knowing today's Manowar probably makes it unbelievable how good they were back in the days...

Sweden had good stuff as well: Heavy Load, Gotham City, Silver Mountain, Oz (well ok Finland, but pretty close). Same for Germany: Trance, Vampyr, Black Fate...
Don't **** on Stryper! Some of the best dual guitar attack committed to tape

For the bump, saw skid row Friday night at the Prince Bandroom..... They Played Forever!! Was amaaaazing!
Now that metal is in decline popularity wise it's both great and sad to watch these bands live now. Saw Helloween a couple of years ago live in Adelaide with maybe 250 people in a pub.
They were playing to 80 thousand at festivals in their heyday.

Sure do, reckon they were one of the first bands I saw sneaking into the century hotel as a 14 yr old.
I never saw Sudafed live but they were always played on the metal radio hour in Adelaide. 5Pba Fm I think it was. Thursday night for 1 hour.
