November 24th, 2012 marks the 21st anniversary of the passing of Queen vocalist Freddie Mercury. An interesting way to honor Freddie’s enduring status as a Rock legend and Gay icon might be to purchase a limited edition print portrait of the Freddie Mercury Lego character seen above, which is being sold by Little Artists for the tidy sum of $436! Ten percent of the profits from each portrait sold will be donated to the Terrence Higgins Trust, one of Great Britain’s biggest sexual health organizations. Read more about the story at This Link.

CD Review: Metal Health (Remaster) by Quiet Riot

Quiet Riot, Metal Health
Original Release Date: March 1983
Remastered and Re-Released: August 2001
(Portrait/Epic/Legacy)

Quiet Riot’s multi-platinum debut brought the empowering declaration “Bang Your Head” into the vernacular of metal fans everywhere. While famous for its venerated, chest-thumping cover of Slade’s “Cum On Feel the Noize,” the glam classic “Slick Black Cadillac” and inspired ballad “Don’t Wanna Let You Go” revealed Quiet Riot to be about much more than just big guitar noise and epic macho posturing. Metal Health is a hard driving but relentlessly joyous collection of songs recalling a time when metal music was actually fun – and it rocks hard enough to crack a skull. Successfully connecting the attributes of commercial rock with the sonic muscle of heavy metal, its history as the first metal album to reach #1 on the Billboard charts says it all.

Track Listing:
1. Metal Health
2. Cum On Feel The Noize
