Wow, wow, wow. What can I say. This was a night of hair-raising rock and roll to remember. I'll do my best to recall the whole night to all of you and hopefully I'll get some feedback, cos this isn't gonna be easy to review.
The opening band Thruster went on at 8 PM sharp. They are a local Cincy band dating back to the 80s and were basically the American culmination of the whole NWOBHM. I didn't recognize their four or five originals, but here are their titles, as well as the cover tunes they did. These were all big singalongs, and the group were pretty skilled.
Balls to the Wall (Accept cover)
Screams of Pain
Can U Deliver (Armored Saint cover)
Losing My Soul
Wrathchild (Iron Maiden cover)
Don't Ever Give In
Master of Puppets (Metallica cover)
Thruster left, the roadies entered, and within fifteen to twenty minutes, the Motor City Madman himself came onto the stage, electrifying the crowd with two hours of guitar solos, rock n' roll, the Spirit of the Wild, and the most foul and politically incorrect redneck mouth I have heard in my life. Before I give you the set, I'll tell you that he hates most everyone not American. A few quotes: To Japan: "If you try to take over America, we will fucking melt you.", to his idea of hippies: "To those of you who think animals have rights, fuck you." and of course the one that applied to me and I found funny: "I see some younger guys out here, and you're in for a treat, because only at an Uncle Ted show will everyone under 15 get a free fucking machine gun!" He also shot a flaming arrow from a crossbow into the heart of a giant Saddam Hussein. So now for the setlist, it was a good one, but keep in mind, many of these turned into twelve minute jam sessions.
