RhoDeo 1539 Goldy Rhox 229

Hello, today the 229th post of Goldy Rhox, classic pop rock. In the darklight an English musician, singer and songwriter. Best known as the lead vocalist and lyricist of the rock band Led Zeppelin, he has also had a successful solo career. With a career spanning more than 40 years and possessing a powerful wide vocal range.  After the break-up of his band in December 1980 (following the death of John Bonham), he briefly considered abandoning music to pursue a career as a teacher in the Rudolph Steiner education system; going so far as to be accepted for teacher-training. He nevertheless embarked on a successful solo career.

Todays artist married Maureen Wilson on 9 November 1968. The couple had three children: daughter Carmen Jane (1968) (married to Charlie Jones, his bass player for solo tours); and sons Karac Pendragon (1972–1977), and Logan Romero (1979). The couple divorced in August 1983. Later, he had a another son, Jesse Lee (1991), with Shirley Wilson, sister of Maureen.

Todays artist is one of the most significant singers in rock music and has influenced the style of many of his contemporaries, including Geddy Lee, Ann Wilson, Sammy Hagar, and later rock vocalists such as Jeff Buckley and Jack White who imitated his performing style extensively. Freddie Mercury of Queen, and Axl Rose of Guns N' Roses were also influenced by him. Encyclopædia Britannica notes "Exaggerating the vocal style and expressive palette of blues singers such as Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters, Todays artist created the sound that has defined much hard rock and heavy metal singing: a high range, an abundance of distortion, loud volume, and emotional excess. The number of gold and platinum albums on his account could easily have me posting his goldy rhox's for the next 4 months such has been his well recieved output..

Most of the albums i 'll post made many millions for the music industry and a lot of what i intend to post still gets repackaged and remastered decades later, squeezing the last drop of profit out of bands that for the most part have ceased to exist long ago, although sometimes they get lured out of the mothballs to do a big bucks gig or tour. Now i'm not as naive to post this kinda music for all to see and have deleted, these will be a black box posts, i'm sorry for those on limited bandwidth but for most of you a gamble will get you a quality rip don't like it, deleting is just 2 clicks...That said i will try to accommodate somewhat and produce some cryptic info on the artist and or album.

Today's mystery album is the 2nd solo album by today's mystery singer, released on July 11, 1983  It was his second top 10 album in the US and UK. It also gave him his first solo Top 40 hit with "Big Log". The most popular track on album-oriented rock radio in the US was "Other Arms", which reached number one on the Billboard Top Tracks chart. Genesis drummer Phil Collins played drums for six of the album's eight songs. On the other two tracks former Jethro Tull drummer Barriemore Barlow performed.

Like his first solo album,  the songs departed from the hard rock of Led Zeppelin. Following the strength of these albums, our man launched a successful tour in 1983. Phil Collins was the drummer for his band on this tour. Collins was content to perform in the background, despite his own enormous success as a solo artist and with Genesis at the time.

In 2008, Rolling Stone named him the 15th greatest singer of all time on their list of 100 Greatest Singers of All Time. In 2009, he was voted the "greatest voice in rock" in a poll conducted by Planet Rock.Rhino Entertainment released a remastered edition of the album, with bonus tracks, on 3rd April 2007. N'Joy
