Awesome Album Series #7: HANOI ROCKS "All Those Wasted Years"

Bangkok Shocks, Saigon Shakes, Hanoi Rocks - and on “All Those Wasted Years” they rocked big time! In my band at the time, Barfly, we did two Hanoi Rocks covers; “Up Around the Bend” (I know it is CCR - but we did it Hanoi-style) and “Taxi Driver”.

This awesome live album was recorded in December 1983 at The Marquee Club in London, and released in 1984, about a year before the tragic death of Razzle. My first Hanoi Rocks album was “Two Steps From the Move”, another awesome sleazy rocker! 

I never got the pleasure of seeing the band live, but this live album was a nice replacement. And when I got the video it was all just fine!
