We also lost veteran musician Leon Russell, who explored many genres including rock blues, country, bluegrass, standards, gospel and surf records. Whitesnake did a great version of “Help Me Through The Day” on the “Love Hunter” album released in 1979 before David Coverdale went blond and the band was more blues-based.
On the local front, two Long Island Metal intuitions did their farewell shows. Fingers Metal Shop, one of the nation’s first and longest-running metal shows played it ‘finale’ on Sunday, November 13th. Having been part of this show since its humble beginings, I must say hobby turned vocation was part of my life for 33 years. My experiences there could fill novels and all I learned about Metal Radio, I learned from its host, Fingers, and I am honored to carry the torch with this show.
The Vault featured music not too many Black Sabbath fans have heard. The backstory is that Black Sabbath was touring with Glenn Hughes to support "The Seventh Star" album but the frontman was not physically able to do the tour. After four shows, New Yorker Ray Gillen was brought in and remained when they started work on the follow-up album “The Eternal Idol”. Soon after the demos were completed, Ray left the band to join up with John Sykes to form Blue Murder and his vocals were replaced by Tony Martin. The demo was leaked – listen mid-way for Ray’s version of “The Shining” recorded in 1987.
