Great Documentary Of An Era!!!
24 April 2009 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

Hair, Profanity, booze, being young and restless... Above and foremost, it was a time when hard rock n' roll was in its prime. Found a copy of it recently hiding in a deck among other music dvds in a "Public" Store and it made me listen to all 1986 records that I have. Hell Of a year for hard rock!!! "Zebraman" rules and without any doubt sums up the vibe of the era. By the way, my first concert was Saxon, May 1986 in Athens. They played a blinding set. Spitfire, a very underestimated Greek hard rock band(still fighting and giving great shows you know),was supporting. Judas Priest's of 1986 show was immortalized in "Priest Live" live LP and video too. It really got me rocking' in the summer of '87 when it was released...
