You had The Clash headlining the friday night who had virtually fallen apart and given up at this point. In fact even at the end of the gig there was a fist fight between Strummer and security. Mick Jones left the band straight after and never came back.

And then Van Halen played the next night and blew them offstage with Quiet Riot, Motley Crue, Ozzy, Priest & The Scorpions backing them and basically replaced The Clash as the biggest band in the U.S. overnight.

That's pretty much when rock music became mainstream, all those bands had platinum albums after playing that show.
I remember reading about that show in Motley Crue's autobiography, and they pretty much said the same thing (sans the stuff about the Clash), that that's when metal really took over. Shout at the Devil went platinum -- which is pretty crazy when you consider that out of all those other bands, Motley probably had the most radio unfriendly album, without any obvious singles. Before that they were just some skuzzy band living in a roach-infested apartment, who nobody outside of the Sunset Strip had even heard of.

As far as I'm concerned, the early rise of glam metal is as unlikely a success story as grunge. There wasn't really a decade of a single genre dominating the airwaves in desperate need of dying to create such a backlash, so the about face was actually pretty random considering that it had only been a few years since solos and straight-up rock had become a sin.

On another note, Motley Crue were actually my first show back in the mid-late 00s, and they blew Aerosmith off the stage. Granted, Aerosmith were doing that self-indulgent thing where they played boring blues jams, and Steven Tyler kept playing that ****ing harmonica rather than actually singing, but Motley Crue still killed. Even though I was waiting in line for beer at the time, "Live Wire" was still epic as **** from halfway across the venue.

Or just go steal "Metal Health", "Cum On Feel the Noize", and "Slick Black Cadillac", and call it a night.

Saw Rick Derringer destroy Aerosmith in their own back yard in the late 70s. That band took getting wasted and trying to play an arena show to a whole new level back then. They "played" for about 45 minutes and then Tyler couldn't even make the 3 minute encore - which Perry sang.

Not been able to find anything. This would have happened around 1996/97

Again, not saying it's a bad thing - I like the album.

Scott's contributions to Supertramp were more in the sound department, not in directing them in what and how to play their instruments.

Have you read his book? It's a really great read.

I have read Ken Scott's book and yeah, it's pretty great

The Black Album to me is probably the best album made by the band. Most people say no because it was the transition from heavy metal to more mainstream rock&roll. However there are some heavy parts to keep the old fans happy, there is also new musical styles that attracted new fans to Metallica. The reason I love this album is because it isnt just one idea then spread into 8-10 songs (for example ...And Justice For All was about one topic and the songs all had the same feel and lyrical similaraties). The sound quality is almost perfected in this album. Bob Rock did an excellent job with the production. The sound is Metallica at there best.
