Thanksgiving and metal

Thanksgiving is coming up next week and for this site I have two traditions for the holiday. Back in 2006 I begin doing two posts with the positive being five things in metal that I am thankful for. I have given this honor to bands,individuals, record labels, forms of technology just anything I am thankful that is metal or music related from the past year. The negative is I give out one Big Turkey of the year award. Pretty self- explanatory, it goes to a person, band, event or anything that I think was the top joke or lame item from metal for the past year. The past big turkey award winners are as follows.

2006-Axl Rose
2008-Judas Priest
2009-Lita Ford

So I am thinking hard about these awards and will likely post both the day before Thanksgiving. So stop back to find out who wins.

Hmm. Have to agree that Rose is a turkey! Thought the Nostradamus album on the pretentious side.. but here's a surprise. Lita Ford still attempting rock in 2009? Hell, I had a seventies vinyl of hers and that's the last I heard. Perhaps that's just as well.

sybil law-Thanks.

Maundering mutterer. Lita Ford left the music scene about 15 years and then seemed to be content to be a wife and mother. A few years ago she returned to the stage for a few live appearances. Then last year her new album was a messy mix of bad alternative music and watered down industrial ramblings. That's why she got the award.
