Here's the Boston Black Sabbath Van Halen Sammy Hagar (The Red Rocker) 1978 concert poster Roger Wbab was talking about with the concert review. Can you imagine seeing all these bands for $12.50? Roger & JP

~☮ Sept 23,1978 Anaheim Stadium BOSTON, Black Sabbath, Van Halen & Sammy Hagar. 12.50 General Admission, in advance; 15.00 Day of Show. Show starts at 4:00 P.M.

Van Halen stole the show at the huge outdoor concert of 56,000 at California’s Anaheim Stadium by hiring look-a-likes to parachute from an airplane into the stadium. It was also the day that Eddie met future Van Halen singer Sammy Hagar.

Fan Reviews

“What a show Van Halen is announced as we see 4 parachutes landing just outside the stadium then the band runs in looking like they are removing their chutes .I actually believed this for years till i read on their site it was a gimmick and they had hired stunt people to do it still cool though. Enjoyed all the bands But being a Black Sabbath fan Ozzy and the boys were my favorite.I was trashed I had smoked some stuff that was laced with some other stuff man was I trashed.”

“Montrose, Van Halen, Sabbath and Boston. It still elicits some head scratching as far as how the heck Boston was the headliner. This is the show where Sammy met Eddie (VH). VH on their first supporting tour opening for Ozzy’ last tour with Sab. VH KILLED it! Their homecoming to So Cal and first area stadium gig. They did whole parachute gag and came out and had the entire sold out stadium on their feet the whole time they played. I was 3 people from the stage directly in front of EVH. Sab was great but you could see Ozzy was a bit “out of it”. I have never seen such a mass exodus of people leaving BEFORE the headliner went on stage. I felt bad for Boston but then had to leave myself. More than a Feeling did't sound quite right after War Pigs and Children of the Grave.”

Anaheim Stadium 1978“ This was one of my favorite stadium shows of the period, and I was convinced that VH parachuted down and road motorcycles to the stage. Burst my bubble that it was a gag. Awesome show. Boston was big back then, but Van Halen just blew them away. Hot, sunny day. Good times! Anaheim Stadium shows were great, but Balboa Stadium in San Diego was the best! Miss that place lots.”

“My and a friend went to this concert and Sammy Hagar, Van Halen and Black Sabbath all totally rocked!!! Boston was a huge disappointment. I was also surprised they were used as the headline band over Black Sabbath and Van Halen. We listened to the first couple songs by Boston then joined the mass exodus of departing guests. They were very disappointing and boring in concert.”

“I remember waiting in line to get into the stadium and it being 102 degrees. Huge crowd. Seemed like every jarhead from Camp Pendleton was at this show. People were throwing water on each other all day – I remember someone dumping water from a huge metal trashcan from the third deck, and the can slipped and went over the deck… not sure how it did't kill anybody. Boston headlined this show because in terms of record sales they far outpaced the others, and Don’t Look Back had just been released. Sabbath sold the most t-shirts that day. VH were fresh, at their peak, and everyone loved them. I loved Boston at the time, but even I left halfway through the show – it was getting late, and they were anticlimactic. (And I was 15 – mom was waiting in the parking lot. How were pickups like that coordinated in the days before cell phones?)”

“Anaheim Stadium (Angel Stadium back then) First and only time I saw Boston – Great laser show – way too hot that day (Over 100 plus) and food fights galore. Boston was off, and due to the weather and late start, a lot of people did't stay for the whole set. Black Sabbath on the bill, plus Sammy Hagar and this band called Van Halen. Guess who killed it that day? The band that supposedly parachuted into the venue. (great gag) “

“I stayed out side in line all night because it was general admission in the morning, It was a really hot day and the bands all rocked.It was first time I heard of Van Halen and Sammy Hagar, I went mainly for Black Sabbath. Sammy opened the show.Then Van Halen came on I’m a Sammy and Van Halen fan every since.”

“16 years old. Slept in the parking lot the night before with a frisbee for a pillow. I remember running into the stadium across the baseball field and out to the stage. Sammy Hagar got the crowd going. Van Halen was full of energy and was amazing, They made serious fans out of the people that saw them that day. Sabbath stole the show and was alone worth the time and money to be there. What a show. After they were done Boston was a let down. People were tired and they could not match the energy of Van Halen or Black Sabbath. All in all a great memory.” ☮~

Who was the dead guy in the envelope today? I missed it. lol
``DISCIPLES OF METAL´´ an album that opens with the song ``Laid to Waste´´, with extremely striking riffs, ripped vocals and an engaging chorus, showing straight away, after that we have the song ``Signs From Above´´,showing an extremely contemporary approach to Hard Rock. In ``Tantrum´´, the highlight is certainly the dropped guitars and the choirs giving an extra charm to the track. Following, we have ``Die Before I kill You´´,which follows the same formula as the previous one, with dropped and weight guitars,starting with instruments sounding smooth and harmonious. The following track,``Left Behind´´ brings back the heavy guitars and all the energy that the band has, simply for me, the best song on the album, with a harmonization of the bass, drums and the wonderful vocals, a riff to hear , a chorus that sticks to your head. In geral, the whole album is a surprise for each track, but without leaving the mark of the band, which is that Heavy Metal and It can be seen in the last song, ``Lunacy´s Son´´, which already begins with a perfect introduction and follows with a heavy riff, and with many progressive influences and in the end exploding speed and weight. All the songs are well represented with high energy, in addition to speed and weight with their iridescent riffs in profusion and by the stone. The repertoire is not the only attraction of this material, and I can say that the refined technique of the drummer, guitarist, bassist and vocalist brings to us a very aggressive dynamic, in addition to technical versatility and a renewing breath for musicality and impressing by the high rotation that they manage to keep music by music and the album is closed with a flourish showing another quality work done in 2020. by Administratetors The Look of Rock and Rock Around The World groups

102.3 WBAB Happy Holidays 🎅🧸 Dear Friends, I'm writing to let you know about my medical situation. I have progressive worsening kidney function from a birth defect and my doctors have recommended exploring the option of receiving a kidney transplant. They have told me that while dialysis will certainly help me, a transplant is the best medical treatment. The waiting time for a deceased donor kidney is years away and I have been advised to try to find someone who may be willing to donate a kidney to me. I am writing this letter with the hopes that someone may consider coming forward as being a match of type B or Type O Blood O is a universal type that works on anyone I want to be clear that I would only want a donor who does not feel any pressure to donate. I've learned that for some people the idea of kidney donation is a natural fit for them, and if that's you, then I hope you may consider helping me. If the idea of donation is not comfortable for you, I want you to know that I understand, and that your decision to not come forward will not affect our relationship in any way Kidney disease impacts every area of my life. Kidney failure causes a loss of energy and a lot of physical and mental fatigue. My food choices are limited, I'm not able to drink a lot of fluids. My understanding is that a successful kidney transplant will improve and relieve many of my symptoms and eventually allow me to return to a normal way of life again. I've learned it's possible for kidney donors to live a normal and healthy life with just one kidney. Donors are carefully medically screened to make sure it is safe for them to donate. I was also interested to learn donors don't have to be relative or be an exact blood match in order to donate. I understand this is an extremely personal decision and there is a lot to think about. If you would like to gather more information and explore kidney donation further, feel free to contact the donor nurse coordinators St. Paul's Hospital @ 604-806-9027 / 1-877-922-9822 Transplant.bc.ca My Mobile phone number 778-685-3071 Joe Fast
