Ross The Boss



Okay. Well, part of me really wants to cover the first five Manowar albums that I missed yesterday, but I can't really do that AND cover the two albums Ross has released as Ross The Boss. Anywho, like I said yesterday, Ross left Manowar in '89, and has since toured solo. (Well, not COMPLETELY solo. Ross The Boss is a band. Think Alice Cooper. There's the person and the band.)

Something that I left out yesterday is that I actually got to see Ross perform last year at the ProgPower kick-off show. I was going to post one of the photos I took there, but I seem to have deleted the PPXI Thursday night photos. :( I WILL post a photo of the setlist that I was able to grab though. I didn't get it signed, but I always collect the random concert stuff that I obtain.

yeyz setlist. You can also see a Mastodon setlist there,
as well as a signed Leaves Eyes drumstick, and my PPXI Gold Badge. 
Because I kept wanting to post it yesterday, I'm going to start today's music listing off with All Men Play On 10. As you can see, that was not played at the show, no matter how many times the crowd yelled "PLAY ON TEN!!" (I guess no one tells the man what to play....It just ain't done that way.)



Next is the title track for Manowar's first album, Battle Hymn.



And now for some non-Manowar material. This is I.L.H./Blood Of Knives, from New Metal Leaders.



And finally, Dead Man's Curve. It's not my favorite track off of the 2010 album, Halestorm, but it's the only one that I could find on Youtube.

  2. Ross the boss is awesome, he changed the metal world with his guitar playing :D. I'm jealous that you got to go to ProgPower. I live in Florida and would love to drive up to Atlanta, but it's far as hell and the gas is ridiculous high now :(

  3. Well, if you (Or anyone else) is thinking of going this year, give me a heads up. You can get us both in a contest for free Gold Badges for life. (And VIP access starting in 2012.) Details are in my PPXI post.

  11. Printed setlists are for pussies. Permanent marker scrawl and the drummer shouting 'YO! hEY! WHAT'S NEXT?' between every song is the only way to do it. ;P

  12. 57 years old and still kicking ass! I remember when this guy toured with Sabbath for a bit, he's probably one of the most underrated guitarists in the whole Rock genre.
