SomeOldGuys Release thread - RB3 10th Anniversary pack

Recommended Posts

So we had planned on something else for this, but decided to hold that for C5.
Instead you will have to settle for these releases
We posted them into the database yesterday so they should all be available to download.  Please comment if there are issues.
Lets start with this one
Man on the Silver Mountain is the debut single by Rainbow and the first track of their debut album, Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow, written by guitarist Ritchie Blackmore and vocalist Ronnie James Dio.
Shot in the Dark is a single by Australian rock band AC/DC from their upcoming seventeenth studio album Power Up. The song was recorded late 2018 to early 2019. It was released on 7 October 2020 at 3:00 p.m. (in Australia), and is the band's first single released since 2015's "Rock the Blues Away" from their album Rock or Bust.
So This Is Love? is a rock song written by the group Van Halen for their 1981 album Fair Warning. It is one of four singles issued for the album, and is unique among Van Halen songs for being rooted in a swing beat. It peaked at #110 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and #15 on the U.S. Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.
Beautiful Girls is the last song from Van Halen's second album, Van Halen II, from 1979. The song was a concert staple during their tour for this album. The song was originally titled "Bring on the Girls" when it was recorded for the 25-song Warner Brothers demo, but the title and lyrics were changed accordingly.
Little Guitars is a song performed by Van Halen. It was included on their album Diver Down. The song is notable for its intro, an acoustic flamenco-style solo by Eddie Van Halen. This was accomplished by using his right hand to pick a single-note trill on the high E string. He then used his left hand to play the melody on the A and D strings using hammer-ons and pull-offs.
Enjoy and please be sure to comment!!  Happy Birthday RB3

Previous Releases

[spoiler=Billy Squier Pack]

Billy Squier was the personification of early 80's rock music, with five Top 10 Rock hits from 1981 to 1984 and three consecutive platinum albums. His best selling album, 1981's Don't Say No is considered a landmark release in the arena rock genre. He is first and foremost, a rocker, and his music carries as much Rolling Stones in its DNA as it does Aerosmith or Led Zeppelin. He's a solid and memorable songwriter whose hooks grab your ear, his songs are powered by killer guitar riffs. Since leaving the music business in the 90's, his music has been continually featured in movies and video games (including four tracks as official DLC).
In the Dark
Listening to Billy Squier's debut album Don't Say No leaves the listener with little doubt that he is a bona fide and legitimate rocker, a talented vocalist, and an exceptional songwriter. "In the Dark" has a great mixture of guitar and synths, a steady beat and tight production, and feature Billy's orgasmic vocals on the outro.
Emotions in Motion
Billy Squier delivered a second straight solid hard rock hit with 1982's Emotions in Motion, the album served to expand Squier's sounds into funk, new wave and other dance oriented forms of rock music. Like its predecessor, it reached the Top 5 album charts and achieved multi-platinum sales. The title song takes a slow approach with a bass-driven groove, accented by backing vocals by Queen's Freddy Mercury and Roger Taylor.
Rock Me Tonite
The lead single from the multi-platinum 1984 album Signs of Life by Billy Squier. The song was his highest and longest charting single, and despite the major success is also associated with the end of Billy's professional career due to the disastrous music video that accompanied it. Entire chapters of books have been devoted to studying the rapid and total decline of Billy's music career with the release of one single video. Nowadays, Billy is altruistic about the video "The scars aren't that deep, it was a bad part of a good life."


[spoiler=ZZ Top Pack]

ZZ Top 3 Pack
ZZ Top got started in 1969, with the release of a couple of singles composed by Billy Gibbons, then a self-titled debut album in 1971, followed by Rio Grande Mud and Tres Hombres the following two years. A live album and a couple of more studio albums were released in the mid seventies, highlighted by the critically-acclaimed Tejas in 1976. Following a worldwide tour to support the album, the band planned a 90-day tour, which was ultimately extended to be two years long.
ZZ Top came back from an extended break to close out the 1970s with Degüello, their sixth studio release. Mirroring the group itself, this album is as much about an attitude and lifestyle as it is about the actual music (a prime example is that the extended, three year break was used to grow the signature beards of Gibbons and Dusty Hill). A heavily blues-influenced record, marked the first prominent use of keyboards, the title borrowed from the Mexican Army bugle call at commencement of the Battle of the Alamo in 1836. The title may also be analogous to the group’s approach of wielding their electric-blues signature sound to reach a new level of pop/rock achievement.
"I Thank You"
Degüello opens with a cover of Sam & Dave’s 1968 Soul hit “I Thank You”, written by Isaac Hayes and David Porter. ZZ Top’s version takes the Soul roots and treats it with Texas flavored blues-boogie, with Gibbons vocals being extra rough but potent.
"Cheap Sunglasses"
The album’s climax comes with “Cheap Sunglasses”, built on a consistent groove which has been derided as either a rip-off of Edger Winter’s “Frankenstein” or Blind Faith’s “Had to Cry Today” (or both). No matter the case, this is a musical highlight for the band, with a long, cool, middle section built on a bass groove and key riffs with some bluesy lead guitar by Gibbons and great drumming by Beard throughout. After a final verse, the song slowly dissolves through scaled back groove.
"Planet of Women"
"We used synthesizers as a tool, and the great thing about it is we did not know what we were doing," Hill told the Caller-Times. "So, we didn't have any restrictions on ourselves. But that's the way we do things. We truly like to have a record dictate how we're going to record. We don't do that first."





[spoiler=Martin Birch Pack]
Martin Birch Tribute Pack Coming Sunday 9/6
"Lady Evil" is the third track on the Black Sabbath album Heaven and Hell. It is written by Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi, Bill Ward and Geezer Butler. This song, like others on the album, reflects Dio's poetic turn with the lyrics, which were such a sharp departure from the Ozzy Osbourne-era Black Sabbath. As Tony Iommi mentions in the book Precious Metal "None of those songs would have worked with Ozzy."
"Lady Evil" is an example of a song that gave Ronnie James Dio and Black Sabbath a reputation for misogyny. "Digital Bitch," from the Ian Gillan years, is another one. Think what you will of Dio's attitude towards women, but know this: he has married twice, and the second wife is Wendy Galaxiola, who also served as his manager, and whom he married in the early 1980s and remained married to.

CrazyCanucks drum chart was used as a base to begin with with minor edits, re-tempo mapping, new audio and full band treatment.
Let's just say David Coverdale isn't very subtle




Written by lead singer Ronnie James Dio and guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, "Temple Of The King" describes a spiritual journey to the mysterious Temple Of The King, where he finds his answer.

Blackmore, who was into yoga long before it was trendy, said that he was watching a show called Yoga for Health when he got the idea for the song, which explains the vibe. "A lot of people like that one, a lot of older people like it because it's more mellow, it's not a full-fledged assault on the ears," "I don't like to do more than one or two songs like that per album. We probably won't perform that onstage, because the vocal harmonies are very strange in the middle part – I don't think it's a proper stage number, we'd have everyone falling asleep."

This song takes on religious zealots who predict the end of the world. Lead singer Bruce Dickinson makes the point that people have been predicting the end times for centuries, yet we're still here.

The phrase "Die With Your Boots On" on is a saying from the American Old West, meaning to die with honor after putting up a fight.

To "Die with your boots on" is an idiom referring to dying while fighting or to die while actively occupied/employed/working or in the middle of some action. A person who dies with their boots on keeps working to the end, as in "He’ll never quit—he’ll die with his boots on." The implication here is that they die while living their life as usual, and not of old age and being bedridden with illness, infirmity, etc.

Though we did make our own guitar chart for this - it basically ended up almost being a mirror to Puppetz Frets On Fire chart so I want to give props out.



This song was originally written for the animated classic "Heavy Metal" but did not appear in it. Instead they used Veteran of the Psychic Wars in the movie.

The lyrics to the song were inspired by the 1977 book, The Iron Sun: Crossing The Universe Through Black Holes, by Adrian Berry. Several of the lyrics to the first verse are derived from chapter titles of the book.
