Witchkiller-Day of the saxons
It's October which means I am in the mood to put some semi-horror related covers up here. Canada's Witchkiller knocked out just one release. It was this EP from 1984 and it's actually pretty good. I guess they were getting ready for this cover photoshoot and someone said "hey, nothing says metal like cheap rubber Halloween masks so lets toss some in the picture". The rest is history.

David Lee Roth-Crazy from the heat
When I think of music for summer the top bands I think of are the Ventures and Van Halen. That of is course is real Van Halen which means with David Lee Roth. To a lesser extent I do think of Dave's solo stuff as well. I almost forgot about this one. The Diamond one looks so cool and relaxed here like he doesn't have a care in the world. Having just finished the tour for the highly successful "1984" album we may have thought that was true. However in reality it was just months before he was going to be out of Van Halen and out on his own for a long time. Maybe that was part of his charm, even though he could be a flake and even when things were rough below the surface Diamond Dave had a way of making it look like he was having the time of life.
