PiercingMetal Thoughts: As you can see the list is not only the Hard Rock and Heavy Metal acts but also the Country, The Pop and the traditional Rock greats and a score of Pop artists. Of the Metal and Rock side of the fence there are no less than ten groups that I wish to see on this rundown and I wonder which ones you readers are most interested in seeing. Chime in with your favorites down in the comments section below and I shall see you next time.
