Alice_Cooper_Old_School_1Lifelong Alice Cooper fan Russ P almost had heart failure when he saw the recently released  'Old School 1964-1974' box set, not so much for what was included in it but more so for its hefty price tag. Luckily for Russ URHQ chipped in for a copy so he could luxuriate in the box set's full beauty, and right now we're all ears for his all-important value for money verdict.

diamondrexxCall it glam, call it sleaze, tag it hair metal or cock rock, Uber Rock's resident teezin' pleezin' expert Ross Welford was so impressed by Joe Daly's recent 50 Greatest Heavy Metal Albums feature that he wanted to do a list dedicated to the trashier side of rock. Calling on the UR Massive and Uber Rock Soldiers worldwide he collected an 83 band hitlist, squeezing it down to the Top 20 albums ever. You may agree, you may not. You might think that some bands don't even belong on a glam rock list. Whichever way you swing you have to agree, there are some great albums here! Ross, pick up that guitar and talk to me!!!
