    • I want to hear all the things!  Best moment is John not getting murdered by the suspicious woman, your text-review of Whoosh!  Of course the first part of the new album and all the other moments.

    • Excited for the 50th anniversary of Machine Head! March 25, which is also the same date that I’ll be seeing them in Turkey! Looks like the stars align for an amazing show (if it doesn’t get delayed that is) And I suppose the 40th anniversary of Straight Between the Eyes, Magic, Saints An’ Sinners, Hughes/Thrall as well. Also not to brag or anything, but in 2021 I had listened to over 3,000 minutes of this podcast just on Spotify alone (and apparently my favorite song was “King of Dreams” but that’s besides the point). I’m definitely looking forward to more episodes, and seeing as there is so much ground to cover it’s gonna be a fun ride!

    • The one that sticks with me is the Straight Between the Eyes episode, I’d forgotten how good the album was, cover aside, and realised that it’s aged really well too.
  • @sabbathfans
    • My favorite moment isn’t from any particular episode. It was the fact that the episodes I listened to have turned my opinions around on several records. Also, I enjoy screaming at your ratings in the car – “How the frick can you rate that a 5? What’s wrong with you?” 🙂
  • Peter Gardow
    • @gardowp
    • A fine year of episodes overall – enjoyed being part of some of the live episodes, however the “Maine Pizzeria Reviews” stands out – as a “5 Dirty Grinder” episode. What a coincidence – ordered out some Japanese tonight – a LOL moment when I saw this menu item -“not rude”

    • The Turning To Crime originals stream was the highlight for me, that was so much fun! I also enjoyed the variety in the episodes this year, like the Burn isolated tracks or Roger on MTV as well as the recent one on Ritchie’s ES335

    • ·The Burn Isolated Tracks was a great episode. But for me, it’s hard to beat John’s reactions during the Warhorse episode.

    • Replying to @DeepPurplePod

    • Bobby Harrison Funkist episode from a musical standpoint. I really liked that record and still plan on buying it.
    • Like many, Maine Pizza Reviews is a favorite for unknown reasons. It should be a waste of time, but it was awesome!
    • The Black Country Christmas was by far my favorite! (This is a comment that will of course be relevant soon!)
  • Raff Kaff
    • We finally get to hear the early Whitesnake Albums, which I love. I liked the episodes that are a little outside the box like the Doors smackdown, The Who did it better episode and Blackmore’s Gibson.
    • The shows about the live albums had just a great atmosphere.
