Transcript of the Show

[INTRO]

It’s all hair on deck! This is the annual tribute to the bands performing on the Monsters of Rock Cruise! So do what Autograph tells you, and turn up the radio!

—————————————-
Autograph – Turn Up the Radio [Single Version] —————————————-

Whether you’re going to be on the 2020 Monsters of Rock Cruise or just wish you were, this is the best 2 hours you’ll experience before the cruise itself. Every song you’ll hear tonight will be played live on the deck of the hardest rocking ship to ever set sail in the Western Carribean. So get amped up for the cruise with the Hard, Heavy & Hair Show’s tribute to MORC 2020.

My name is Pariah Burke, and I’m your hard talking, heavy drinking, hairball of a horny hedonist host.

Thank you for joining me on this pre-cruise primer. In addition to truly great music, I’ve also got an interview you’re not going to want to miss from this guy:

[clip – BC interview]

That’s coming up a little later. Right now, it’s one of the headliners of the Cruise, Krokus, with “Screaming in the Night.”

—————————————-
Krokus – Screaming in the Night
Lynch Mob – River Of Love
Faster Pussycat – House of Pain
—————————————-

Faster Pussycat with “House of Pain” following “River of Love” by Lynch Mob.

Still coming up this hour is British Lion, Winger, Tesla, Doro, and more.

You’re listening to Hard, Heavy & Hair with me, Pariah Burke, and I’m paying tribute to the best of the nearly 50 bands and artists performing live on the 2020 Monsters of Rock Cruise.

Including this next one.

—————————————-
Winger – Seventeen
Honeymoon Suite – New Girl Now
Doro – I Rule the Ruins
—————————————-

That was the Teutonic titaness, Doro Pesch–she “Rules the Ruins.” Before Doro was “New Girl Now,” Honeymoon Suite’s biggest hit, and Winger with “Seventeen.” When the band plays that hit on the MORC ship, do you think 17 year-old girls will still throw themselves at 60-pushing Kip Winger?

Dads, watch your daughters closely.

Speaking of fast girls and fast rockers, this is Keel, “Speed Demon” on Hard, Heavy & Hair.

—————————————-
Keel – Speed Demon
—————————————-

Coming up is my interview with a guitar player you’ll see a lot of on the Monsters of Rock Cruise. Aboard ship he’ll be playing lead guitar in the Rare Hare jam backing up the sexy voice of Diemonds, Priya Panda, and, of course, he’ll be jumping around the stage with his main band, too. What band? What guitarist? Find out soon.

I’m Pariah Burke, helping you throw horns, stomp feet, and bang your head with Monsters of Rock like Tesla. Don’t worry: I won’t de-rock you.

—————————————-
Tesla – Don’t De-Rock Me
British Lion – Lightning [Single Version] —————————————-

That was “Lightning” from the band British Lion, a musical project by Iron Maiden bassist and primary songwriter, Steve Harris.

British Lion is another artist you’ll see perform live on the high seas, and I do mean HIII-IIGH. There is so much smoking and drinking on the Monsters of Rock Cruise–there’s almost as much pot and booze onboard as there is sex and music! You can go sober, of course, and a lot of people do, but one thing you don’t want to do, is go with a monogamous partner. You’ll miss out a stunning array of hookups. Buuuuuuut that’s enough about that. The Hard, Heavy & Hair Show is archived, and some day I might go in for monogamy; I don’t want something I said on the air making it difficult for me take Monsters of Rock Cruise without this hypothetical future girl.

Besides, the Cruise is far from the only annual Rock and bangfest event.

Believe me, on the MORC cruise, you’re gonna want to stay up all night so you can rock out with your [sfx rooster] out.

—————————————-
Slaughter – Up All Night
—————————————-

“Up All Night” by Slaughter.

Next up is that interview with a Monster of Rock regular band member.

This is Black ‘N Blue “Nature of the Beach.”

—————————————-
Black ‘n Blue – Nature of the Beach
—————————————-

I recently sat down again with Black ‘N Blue guitarist Brandon Cook. Here’s how that conversation went.

[BC Interview – Part 1]

—————————————-
Black ‘n Blue – Heat It Up! Burn It Out!
—————————————-

[BC Interview – Part 1 (cont’d)]

I’ll have more from my interview with Black ‘N Blue guitarist Brandon Cook shortly.

Right now, let’s “Get It On” with Kingdom Come.

—————————————-
Kingdom Come – Get It On (Single Edit)
—————————————-

Keith St. John is currently singing for Kingdom Come, which means he’ll be fronting two bands on the 2020 Monsters of Rock cruise–Kingdom Come and Burning Rain. I couldn’t squeeze Burning Rain into this show, but I did put it in the part 2 you can stream on-demand right now. Oh, I didn’t mention that yet, did I?

You know, this is only part 1 of the Monsters of Rock Cruise tribute. There’s a part 2 that’s available only for streaming, and right now, at PariahRocks.com. This show is limited to a 2-hour time slot, and there are so many artists playing MORC 2020, that I just couldn’t fit them all on the show. So I put up for streaming a SECOND part to the tribute show! It’s the biggest hits from those artists I couldn’t fit on this regular show, artists like Firehouse, Burning Rain, Lizzy Borden, Y&T, Thunder, Enuff Z’Nuff, Shiraz Lane, Diamonds, and more! Stream the talk-free part 2 NOW from PariahRocks.com.

Once again, I’m talking to Black ‘N Blue guitarist Brandon Cook. A few minutes ago I played for you Black ‘N Blue’s “Head It Up, Burn It Out,” which is Brandon’s favorite BnB song to play live. I went on to ask him about what he wishes he could play live. Here’s what he had to say.

[BC Interview – Part 2]

Let’s give “Strange Things” a listen. And if you like it, go up to Brandon on the cruise, or to band leader Jamie St. James, and tell them you want to hear them play it live.

—————————————-
Black ‘n Blue – Strange Things
—————————————-

I’ll have more of my interview with Brandon Cook in a few minutes. Right now, this is another band that will perform live on the MORC cruise in February–Steelheart. I know Steelheart is a favorite for several of my listeners, so this is Steelheart’s biggest hit, a favorite of Hair fans the world over. Often mistakenly called “Angel Eyes” for obvious reasons, the actual title of this song from Connecticut-based Steelheart’s 1990 self-titled debut is “I’ll Never Let You Go”.

—————————————-
Steelheart – I’ll Never Let You Go (Angel Eyeing
—————————————-

This is the Hard, Heavy & Hair Show’s yearly pre-cruise show to get you ready for, or to help you feel about missing, the Monsters of Rock Cruise by playing only songs by the bands performing on the cruise.

Like this one from Extreme.

If you’re going to ignore my advice and go with a significant other, now’s the time to grab them.

—————————————-
Extreme – More Than Words
Kix – Get It While It’s Hot
—————————————-

Kix, “Get It While It’s Hot.”

You’ve heard parts of my recent interview with Black ‘N Blue guitarist Brandon Cook. We talked about Brandon being the Black ‘N Blue cheerleader. How very active he is on stage. What Black ‘N Blue songs he likes to play most live. And how he was surprised to find Black ‘N Blue co-founder and lead singer Jamie St. James staring at him in a record store. But there’s one important question I haven’t yet asked Brandon. Truth be told, as a BnB fan, I was afraid of the answer.

[BC Interview – Part 3 ]

That’s all for the excerpts from my interview with Monsters of Rock Cruise regular Black ‘N Blue guitarist and Rare Hare jammer Brandon Cook, but that’s far from the entire interview. To listen to the complete interview, or to watch it, because it was a video interview on my studio couch, visit PariahRocks.com and the show notes for Hard, Heavy & Hair number 237. You can also find the video interview on YouTube and the audio of the complete interview on every good
podcast platform by searching for my name, Pariah Burke, or Hard, Heavy & Hair.

These next two other bands represent the spiritual Metal aboard the Monsters of Rock Cruise 2020–Stryper and King’s X.

—————————————-
Stryper – To Hell With the Devil
King’s X – Over My Head
White Trash – Apple Pie
—————————————-

That was White Trash, a surprising inclusion on the Monsters of Rock Cruise 2020. A Hard Rock band with definite Punk and Ska elements, and, of course, the BadAss Brass brass section there. I still listen to their 1991 self-titled debut album front to back from time to time.

We’re almost to the end of Part 1 of the Hard, Heavy & Hair Show’s tribute to the 2020 Monsters of Rock Cruise. Remember that you can stream Part 2 right now from PariahRocks.com.

More importantly, come Friday, January 31st, THIS show will be available for on-demand streaming, too. So you can stream BOTH parts, all day, all night, and get yourself amped way, way up for the Monsters of Rock Cruise–if you’re sailing on it. If you’re NOT aboard, then listen to the streams of the show on-repeat to MENTALLY board the ship and escape to the world of hair!

I’m Pariah Burke. Your host and producer. Thank you for joining me.

Next week I’ll be back with another regular Hard, Heavy & Hair Show–one more before the beautiful but bodacious, loving yet lustful, Hard, Heavy & Hair Valentine’s Day show the following week. You don’t want to miss either show.

Speaking of that particular holiday, one last MORC artist is going to play us out on the Edge of a Broken Heart. This is Vixen.
