  • Punky Meadows Appreciation Thread

    Guitarist for the great 70's band Angel. Very underrated 70's guitarist,

    he was even tapping on vinyl before EVH.

    They were just on the verge of being huge, and put out several really

    good albums. I have them all on vinyl and listen to them quite a bit.

    Their live album "Live Without A Net" has a good showcase of his

    playing. One unusual thing about his style is even though they

    were lumped in with the metal bands of the day, his playing was

    very clean with very little distortion.

    They were sort of the antithesis of Kiss. They wore all white and

    were on the same record label.

      Yeah they were on Casablanca records too. Always in Circus magazine when I was a kid. You could turn Angel's logo upside down & it looked the same. Crazy!

      I have an old 45 of Punky's -The Cherry People. Ha!

      The opening to this is awesome....

        I'll get in on this one. Punky and the rest of Angel kicked ass. They never got the recognition they deserved. I have Angel and Helluva Band on an import CD set and it sounds great, replaced prehistoric vinyl that had seen better days.

          The logo is what they always comment about on "That Metal Show". Check it out.

            I don't know that I could appreciate them if I was completely blitzed on weed. Those vids made me cringe. IMO they seem to embody pretty much everything that was wrong with music back in the late 70s early 80s.

                  I was wondering who would be the first to post this one

                  I listened to an Angel cd a friend lent me, it had some good stuff but I just kept coming back to this Zappa tune mentally and chuckling.

                    This was one of the better live albums of the 70's- great playing

                        Funny, I did like those guys way back when.

                        I liked Greg Guffria's next band too.

                        More glam/hair music & anorexic models.

                        Is that Craig Goldie on lead?


                        The singer in House Of Lords has that John Parr tone voice.
                        i have come to the conclusion that he is some form of god. no mere mortal has that many guitars/pedals/amp/anything. "It boggles my mind. His collection is the most glorious and true expression of GAS.To each his own though. Amazing collection of beauties. It takes some seriously messed up OCD to compile a collection like that.I hate BBreaker. Damn, I hate him.Suck it.We learned that bbreaker is some sort of god. A god of whine.fk this guy.

                          ^^^^ I read somewhere that Gregg Giuffria is now a multi-millionaire and owns the Biloxi Hard Rock Cafe.

                            I saw Angel open for Styx on the Grand Illusion tour. Excellent band, excellent show!
