Five albums I live for right now:
1. Highway to Hell AC/DC
"How many of you have caught yourself or others playing air guitar to this one? All of you? Oh yeah, thats right."
2. Wild One Thin Lizzy
"One of the most versatile and influential bands in rock n roll history. This and every other Lizzy is a definite must for any rock collection. I listen to it every day."
3. Long Live Rock n Roll Rainbow
"Richie Blackmore (Deep Purple) and Ronnie James Dio I only found this months ago and I was blown away that such a band was out there. F**k man, the title says it all."
4. Ride the Lightning Metallica
"In my opinion, their best album. Back when the original four horsemen relied on no one else but themselves."
5. Soundtrack to the Apocalypse Slayer
"One of the most respected bands in rock/metal history and always a crowd-pleaser."
