Shirt: Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Faith No More - North American Tour 1992

Color:  Black

Brand: Sportswear

Source:  I look at this shirt and part of me thinks its awesome and i love the combo tour shirt.  so cool, it never happens anymore.  and jesus what a fucking monolithic tour.  people in 92 must’ve lost their shit.  i know i did. 

then the other part of my brain kicks in.  the one that has worked with bands like this and my head starts to hurt.  Like the back and forth about which one of these bitches go tot be billed on top…Metallica is on top , fuck that, then GNR gets to be on top on back.  if GNR is on top on back then the Metallica logo on back needs to be 10% bigger cause we Metallica has sold more records….

that kind of bickering really goes on.  while Faith No More gets whatever they get if they are lucky.  and on this tour they got replaced by Motorhead so there is that. 

agh the politics of it all.

Shirt: Dio - Sacred Heart Tour 1985
Color:  Black
Brand: Hanes 100% Cotton
Source:  I have wanted a good Dio shirt for as long as i have been listening to music.  i had always been hoping to find some amazing Holy Diver tour shirt but it never seemed to happen, so Sacred Heart was a solid second. the real selling point however was that it came from the collection of Rocket from the Crypt, OFF!, Earthless, Hot Snakes, 411 Drummer and ex Alva pro skateboarder Mario Rubalcaba.  

Not only was he kind of the first skateboarder too with to music he was really one of my favorite drummers of my era.  he kills it, plays it amazing bands and always has that vibe of a punk rock kid who grew up and got lucky and found his dream job.  so when he started to put his shirt collection up on eBay cause as he says “his burrito, Del Taco and pizza addition” is making it impossible for him to fit into anything anymore.  So a DIO shirt owned by Rubalcaba maybe worn during some sweet live shows, yeah man I’m down for sure.  He is continuing to unload all these amazing shirts so if you want to scope them out and you are a Large or maybe a big MED check them all out here.

Thanks Mario!

Shirt: Scorpions - Double Thunder World Tour 2003
Color:  Heather Grey
Brand: PolyGram
Source:  they just don’t make art for records like this anymore.  its a shame.  i can’t even wrap my brain around what is going on with this guy in this picture.  this is normally the art fro the Blackout album so maybe that explains the head dressing he has.  perhaps he blacked out then woke up with some forks in his eyes for some reason?  perhaps some Chef beat the shit out of him and this was payback.  to be honest id be pissed too it looks painful , but really i m more concerned with his head i hope he doesn’t fall asleep and go into a coma like that.  On the plus side his stache is pretty fucking dirty and good.  so he has that going for him.  

Scorpions used to be super metal to me as a kid now it just seems borderline butt rock but i am still down with it.  dudes can write some hooks thats for sure.  in my day if your rolled up on some fools and they were wearing Scorpions gear you treaded lightly  thats just how it was.

Shirt: Red Fang - HornsColor:  BlackBrand: Fruit Of the Loom Heavy HDSource: I really do love a band that can have fun, and doesn’t take themselves too seriously.   i mean sure be serious but lets not forget your shirts have skulls on them and you are in a band in you 30’s.  no 401K, just a van and some equipment. now i am not talking specifically about Red Fang here just bands in general.  make a career out of it but have fun at the same time.  enjoy the spotlight, the fans and the freedom to do whatever it is you want.  don’t overthink it, its not a career where billions of lives will be affected if you make a bad decision.  
Enter Red fang and what i saw as their first video.. I’m sure it wasn’t but it was the first video i saw of theirs directed by snowboard videographer Whitey McConnaughy 

It ruled, the music was awesome, the video was awesome and you could tell the any band that would make a video like this has to be shut as much fun live (and they are).  They are really everything you want form a good rock band.  Great Riffs, Great live, and awesome attitudes.  they don’t stop with that video either.. there is another tone that is just as good where they spend a 5K video budget smashing shit.  AMAZING.  every persons dream. well mine at least.
