A lot happened in 1983!
Metallica was taking off…after firing Dave Mustaine.
Mustaine would form Megadeth…and thrash became a thing.
Kiss took off their makeup…but should’ve left it on.
The first CD was sold in the US…well, that didn’t last long.
Ozzy played his first show with Jake E. Lee…still missing Randy.
Quiet Riot’s Metal Health is the first metal album to go #1.
NBC launches Friday Night Videos…still loses to MTV.
Dio releases Holy Diver…Hell Ya!
Motley Crue releases Shout at the Devil…Thank you!
Twisted Sister releases You Can’t Stop Rock N Roll…and they were right!
Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.
Yes, my friends, 1983 was a hell of a year!
