Who's best?

Both with a brilliant debut. A second thingy cobbled together by the record company & a third thingy that was somewhat arguably overblown. Both with a fantastic fella on lead geetar, both with a reyt frontman. And the rythym sections were both pretty tidy too.

Between 1455 and 1485, the civil war known as the War Of The Roses , fought between two branches of the Plantagenet house for control of the English throne. Lancaster house represented by a red rose, York by white.......er hang on. Is this the wrong thread .🤔

Speaking of Fev types, have you broken bread with that little beardy-type yet? Used to call himssen Machin, or summat?

It’s a close run thing and I have seen both bands live with their original line-ups (minus maybe the drummers).

I bought Appetite for Destruction on vinyl in the USA while on holiday with the original cover art that was later banned, but I also own a copy of The Second Coming signed by John Squire.

I did manage to lose my virginity though with the The Stone Roses first album as the background music so that probably clinches it for me.

@Gerrumonside ref You've therefore made a good case. 🙂

Yer can't beat a bit of Cash, Mr @Wolford6

Speaking of The Man In Black, I met Peggy Gallagher once (the mother of those naughty boys from Burnage in Manchester) at a festival & she said she'd not come to see her lads, & come instead to see Johnny!!!!

PS These guys formed a band just coz of him - the pics in the vid give it away. 😉

If it was the whole album I'm quietly impressed in a manly silent kind of way. Some of us wouldn't have made it past the first chorus of I Wanna Be Adored

 

 

 

Err, so a friend told me.

 

 

Ah, That's made it sound worse.

Lokking at the title of the thread, there was I thinking this would be an erudite discussion of the historical inaccuracies portrayed  in the Phillipa Gregory inspired mini-series The White Queen and The White Princess.....
