    Default Trailer For 'Inside Metal: The Pioneers Of Los Angeles Rock And Metal (1975-1981)

    Years prior to MTV and decades before public Internet, there was an intransigent force of high-energy rock 'n' roll that dominated the city of Los Angeles. Lost in oblivion over the past 30-40 years, only a handful of stalwarts survived the new millennium yet these bands and artists set the blueprint for the hair metal, power metal and thrash metal bands that would soon follow and reign over Los Angeles and the entire global hemisphere throughout the '80s and into the 2000s. These artists were the groundbreakers and trailblazers that set the course of heavy metal history!! Yet, for some reason, very little is known about these founding fathers of hard rock and heavy metal music... until now!

    Reality Entertainment takes you on a transcendental journey into heavy metal yesteryear in this compelling DVD (the first of many series to come) "Inside Metal: The Pioneers Of Los Angeles Rock And Metal (1975-1981)".

    In the mid-'70s throughout the early '80s, cutting-edge hard rock bands such as SNOW, LEGS DIAMOND, SMILE, A LA CARTE, STORMER, AXIS, EULOGY, DANTE FOX, XCITER, THE BOYZ, LONDON, WOLFGANG, SUITE 19, AIRBORN, DETECTIVE, QUIET RIOT (the early incarnation with Randy Rhoads), SOUND BARRIER, MICKY RATT, STEELER, THE GREG LEON INVASION, MAX HAVOC, SORCERY, VENDETTA, THE SHARKS, PRETTY POISON, and many others (including a little-known band from Orange County called METALLICA and another band from Pasadena you may have heard of named VAN HALEN) ruled the Los Angeles and Orange County nightclubs such as The Starwood, The Whisky, Gazzarri's, The Woodstock, The Woodsound, Pasadena Civic Auditorium, The Stardust Ballroom, The Troubadour, The Fleetwood, Valley West, and backyard parties throughout the southland. This DVD features extraordinary interviews with many of the prime players of the late '70s L.A. rock scene and its surroundings, including:

    * Carlos Cavazo (SNOW, QUIET RIOT, RATT)
    * Jack Russell (DANTE FOX, GREAT WHITE)
    * Don Dokken (AIRBORN, DOKKEN)
    * Brian O'Brian (A LA CARTE)
    * Stephen Quadros (ORANGE, SNOW)
    * Greg Leon (SUITE 19, DUBROW, DOKKEN, GREG LEON INVATION)
    * Joey Vera (SAPHIRE, GREG LEON INVASION, ARMORED SAINT)
    * Roger Romeo (LEGS DIAMOND, FUNKIN MANIACS)
    * Pat McKeon (BADMOON, MAX HAVOC)
    * Scotty Waller (SMILE)
    * Bernie K. (SOUND BARRIER)
    * Frank Dimino (ANGEL)
    * Paul Shortino (ROUGH CUTT)
    * Ron Keel (STEELER, KEEL)
    * Kelly Garni (QUIET RIOT)
    * Vinnie Paul Abbott (PANTERA, DAMAGEPLAN, HELLYEAH)
    * Ann Boleyn (HELLION)
    * Vinny Appice (AXIS, RICK DERRINGER, BLACK SABBATH, DIO)
    * Marq Torien (Ratt, BULLETBOYS)
    * Michael DesBarres (SILVERHEAD, DETECTIVE, CHECQURED PAST, POWER STATION)
    * Steve Plunkett (WOLFGANG, AUTOGRAPH)
    * Jon Hyde (HOKUS POKUS, DETECTIVE, FUNKIN MANIACS)
    * Lars Ulrich (METALLICA)


    Directed by Bob Nalbandian (The Headbanger fanzine), the DVD also features interviews of major supporters of the L.A. club scene of that era, including David Forest (promoter/manager of The Starwood and The Whisky), Malcolm Dome (U.K. journalist), Alan Wood (L.A. scenester), Kevin Estrada (photographer), Jon Sutherland (journalist), John Kornarens (journalist, scenester), and Brian Slagel (journalist, founder/CEO Metal Blade Records).

    A trailer for "Inside Metal: The Pioneers Of Los Angeles Rock And Metal (1975-1981)" can be seen below.

    Bob Nalbandian founded The Headbanger in early 1982 when he was just 17 years old, and released the inaugural issue later that year. The seminal fanzine featured articles and interviews that vividly captured the emerging heavy metal scene.

    I recognize a lot of those names from the promo flyers for VH club gigs I have seen.

    I wonder if Ed got the idea to name his son Wolfgang from the band of that name back in the 70s?
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Pro-shot '70s Whisky concert from Quiet Riot:

    Whyyy...doesn't Van Halen have one?

    There is virtually nothing from the club days on video from VH. All that audio, but not even one second of video. Except for the music vids they did in '78, but obviously that wasn't live.

    After all these years I really thought something would've surfaced in the bootleg market, but....stugats.

    Shot in the dark that the name was about this random Austro-German guy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolfgang_Amadeus_Mozart
