20 Hard Rock CD’s That Hold a Special Meaning to Me…

Top 20 Records that Influenced Me…

I did a lot of debating about this list. I realize that while there have been hundreds of great records from across the musical genres that have influenced me as a person, a musician, a songwriter, and a radio show host, these are the 20 records that hold the MOST meaning to me with a short explanation of how or why they are here. Bear in mind, these are only MY personal favorites and expect that many people will disagree with me. That’s fine. Feel free to create your own list and then tag me in it. I’d love to know what records have had that kind of impact. These are no particular order.

BEST OF 2017 TOP 30 HARD ROCK

Here it is, list #7, the final one and the Grand Daddy of them all, The Music God’s Best of 2017 TOP 30 HARD ROCK records of the year.

When I started these lists 7 years ago, with a single list that covered all of the music for that year into one giant list, I had no idea that it and the radio shows associated with them, would grow to where they are now.

I want to thank every artist, band, label, PR firm, and listener that has allowed me to do this. It’s only going to continue to grow and get even BIGGER!

BEST OF 2017 TOP 30 METAL

It’s time for list #6! It’s time for my TOP 30 Metal CD’s of this year. This one took some serious thought as to where to rank everyone. It was another banner year for metal and it’s always hard to narrow it down to a mere 30 records. I could easily do a Top 50.

TheseĀ  are all records that you can hear played on my radio show, Auditory Riot Radio, every Wednesday from 7-10 pm EST on Mad World Radio Networks.

There’s one more list after this and then it’s head long into the new year!
