Stardom beckoned for Heavy Pettin‘ back in the early 80’s with arena tours supportingKissOzzy and Mötley Crüe and along with the help of MTV, the band scored a couple of Stateside hits.

However, after two hit albums with ‘Lettin’ Loose‘ in 1983 and two years later with ‘Rock Ain’t Dead‘, they literally ended with a ‘Big Bang‘ after a misguided attempt at the Eurovision Song Contest in ’87 resulting in the band breaking up with their third album released after their demise two years later.

News of their reunion came as a complete surprise when earlier last summer Steve ‘Hamie’ Hayman flew over from the States from where he now resides to exclusively announce to MetalTalk & TotalRock that the band were reforming for a gig atWinterStorm and they did a triumphant return – with the prospect of further gigs across Europe/UK for 2018.

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
