Danzig- The Stone, San Francisco Ca. 6/18/89 Master Tape xfer Sony Pro Walkman WMD6C Samhain Misfits

OK, time for an old man ramble. I had bought a ticket for this show well in advance, but then I realized that the show was on Fathers Day. A big group from my Dad’s side of the family went to the Giants game, and I went as well. After the game, I had some friends of my dad drop me off at The Stone.. at about 5 or 6pm. I hung out on Broadway street for HOURS, waiting for the doors to open.
Being there by myself was a huge risk, as I had my Sony Pro Walkman with me and security was pretty tight at the club. If I got caught at the door(or while taping), there was no place to me to take my deck. I would be stuck waiting outside. Luckily, I got everything in.
Show was PACKED so I could not get a really good taping spot, but it still sounds pretty good. It was a bit bassy, so I fixed it up a bit in Izotope.
After the show, I was supposed to get a ride with Mark Martin but I could never find him. I panicked and went with Greg Johnson instead. Mark called me the next day SO pissed off- they waited for an hour after the show, trying to find me. I’m still sorry about that.

Slayer- Backstage @ The Stone, San Francisco Ca. 8/12/88

Man, this one is hard to watch. I have only lost 1 of my master tapes and it was this one. If anyone happens to see an 8mm videotape with This, Dehumanizers from Danceteria in sac, and Flower Leperds from Gilman (all in August of 1988), please let me know. REWARD OFFERED. This fair quality/generated footage exists because Jesse Davis was kind enough to dig it out of a box of old VHS tapes he traded for, years ago. Thank you!

Anyway, Matt Polish was friends with the band and we had hung out with/partied with/chauffeured the band many times so hanging backstage was common… but this was the first time I had my NEW video camera, so we were all screwing around with it backstage. I was planning on filming from the stage, but KERRY knew I was a tape trader and told his security to not let me film. GRRR

Fishbone- The Stone, San Francisco Ca 6/19/86 xfer from low gen cassette

This was on the “B” side of the tape with the RKL set that I posted yesterday. It’s poor quality, but I found this setlist from the show on the fishbonelive.com website and it sounds like a recording has never surfaced. There was a setlist image on the site that I used for the photo here. Thanks fishbonelive!
Anyway, this recording is just a bunch of distortion. That’s what happens when you mix rock concert volume with consumer recording gear. Oh well, I hope someone will appreciate it.

Saxon- The Stone, San Francisco Ca 3/29/82 xfer low gen audio tape Complete show! NWOBHM 1st SF Show

I don’t usually do “on this day” posts since I am not that organized, but I had this one already digitized so why not. This is Saxon’s first show in SF- I was just a bit too young to make this one. I caught them in 1984 on that Saxon/Accept tour, when they were touring Crusader. I would have preferred to see this set…
I think this one was taped by Verne Inhel- sounds like a Sony D3 recording. Very nice!
PS: If you want to hear a bunch of Verne’s recordings, head over to “Lord Pryderi’s ~ Metal History channel” on youtube. Great stuff, but typically only 3 songs from a show. So here is the full set of this one.
From Wayne Vanderkuil’s collection. He got this from Brian Lew, who probably got it from the record vauly.
