#ThrowbackThursday #VinylCountdown

Seemed like the 80s were devoted to massive musical benefits where star-studded line-ups sang heart wrenching ballads motivating the world to a cause of some kind or another.

Live Aid, Farm Aid, Kool-Aid…

#HeavyMetal wasn’t to be denied a piece of the action and gave us Hear ‘n Aid! By 1985 standards with #TipperGore and the #PMRC waging war against #Metal, these were our champions of #Rock showing the world that #rockers care too, dammit!

It was awesome. Never before had all the heavy hitters in metaldom converged like this. #Dio, #RobHalford, #VinceNeil, #BlackieLawless, #KevinDubrow, #DonDokken, #GeoffTate, #DavidStHubbins…(wait, that last guy is from #SpinalTap? Still counts!)

Here’s my 45 #record to share the glory of #RockNRoll as we grind ever closer to #RecordStoreDay2014.
