For some reason I knew that "Dont Fear The Reaper" would be brought up..... this band had so many better songs than that one... !!!
Oh well, better to be known for at least one song than not to be known at all...

Thnx Oz.... I didnt really want to be the only one posting on this story...!! Maybe some of the older generation will have something to say...

Hey,... that looks alot better...
I seen BOC in the early 80s..their stage/light show was amazing....!!! The performance of Godzilla was by far one of the high points of the show...

wanting to hear some good BOC..check out the live ones Some Enchanted Evening or Extraterrestial Live.!! There are a few great studio albums too, Agents of Fortune and Fire of an Unknown Origin among many others...

BOC_Fan left out some other noteable classic BOC tunes...like Heavy Metal(black and silver), E.T.I
Cities on Flame, Veteran of the Psychic Wars..

I couldn't list them all. Some of their best albums were Tyranny and Mutation, Secret Treaties, On Your Feet Or On Your Knees, Agents Of Fortune, Spectres and a few others. Just my view.

I guess I forgot a few didnt I.... must be all the all brain cells I've killed over the years...
Its good to see some other BOC fans out there though...!!

Hey BOC_Fan...what tour did you see..??? I caught them on the Fire of an Unknown Origin tour...They were headlining with Foghat opening and a third band named Whitford/St Holmes...that started off the show.....Whitford/St Holmes was Brad Whitford from Aerosmith and Derek St Holmes was Ted Nugents singer off and on over the years... This was during the time when Aerosmith lost Whitford and Perry...There was one good album and tour and then Aerosmith regrouped and the rest is history...

I will have to go back and check my ticket stub -- yes, I still have all my old stubs. I saw them in Dallas. I don't even remember who opened. But the Godzilla drum solo was AWESOME. I loved how he put on a Godzilla head when the strobe lights were on him!!

I seen them in Cedar Rapids, Iowa... damn, that was in '81 I think.....I do know that it was the Fire of an Unkown Origin tour because Burnin For You was huge at that time...
My brother was able to sneak a camera into the arena, he got a bunch of pictures of the whole show, and even quite a few of the Godzilla performance, I think there might even be a picture or two of the drum solo when he is wearing the Godzilla mask....Yes, that was a truly awsome part of the show...!!!
I can hardly wait to get this DVD and watch it all over again...
