A Plea:

 Has anyone any information about a band called D.Rose or maybe Derose, De Rose or even Deerose?

They were on  The Friday Rock Show  - In Session around 1987/88/89?

The songs they did were: "To Be Content", "D.Rose", Step Into My Living Room" and  "Can You Feel It" . They MIGHT have been French - judging by a lyric. Not that they sound French. they are more like Company Of Wolves mixed with The Dogs d'amour. Cheers.

Dirty Tryx, Smashed, FM, No Sweat, Briar, Broken English, The Grip, Sweet Addiction, Gun, Shy, Lixx, Cry Wolf, First Strike, Thunder, Skin, Jagged Edge, Cheap & Nasty, Heartbreak Angels, The Dogs d'amour, Zodiac Mindwarp, Tigertailz, Dawn After Dark, Horse (London), Red Dogs, The Quireboys, Tattoed Love Boys, Soho Roses, ..........

When I was a teenager I got into Metal. 

My eldest Brother said to me that it was "just a phase". Well, over 20 years later, I still LOVE it. Mostly I love the bands I first fell in love with, but I still discover new bands and like some of the current crop. Bands linke Slipknot who bring something new, for instance. But as I get older I like less and less new bands - basically because I have heard it all before. As a kid I heard the second generation of bands copying off the first and adding new twists along with the first generation still continuing. I don't care much for the third genereation copying the copyers. So I guess I was in a privileged position of being  there for the early years of some genres such as Thrash Metal, Alternative Metal etc. I heard bands like Metallica develop and Faith No More offer something new. I saw the biggest new 80's bands liike Skid Row break into the scene and saw new styles materialise - I remember seeing Nine Inch Nails (I already loved Pretty Hate Machine) play in front of a hostile audience at Wembley supporting Guns N Roses. The crowd didn't consider them "Metal", I wonder what they think now. Metal is a broad church and I love lots of it.
