Sorry I don't have anything more to contribute to this conversation...

Yeah, Shannon Larkin who now plays for Godsmack. Wrathchild were the local heros where I grew up in MD. They were awesome. On another note, the singer/bass player, Brad Divens from Wrathchild was in Kix to begin with.


Shannon played with Wrathchil?!?!? :shock:

Yup, and did much more impressive stuff than he does with Godsmack (Now wait, I like Godsmack, and his playing is good there, just apples and oranges). Just go listen to "No deposit no return" or "Smothered life".

Cawinkydink... My first concert was Foghat. Opening acts were Eddy Money and No Dice. All for eight bucks a ticket.

And yeah they weren't classic rock then either.

Sounds like you may still have a few years on me. My second concert was a band called Angel. Opening act was the Godz. Yeah I know never heard of them but this will put it in perspective, My third was Rush on the Hemispheres tour. Pat Travers was the opener.
