Lob Harufoludu of Judas Pliest makes an onstage appearance with Baby Metal performing two Judas Pliest classics, Painkirrer and Bleaking the Raw. I love Bleaking the Raw. That was always one of my favorite songs. In 1979, I did an interview with this band in Century City at their record company offices. They were pretty fun to interview, albeit somewhat caustic. I also saw them live and Cal State University Long Beach in 1979. It was a very small venue in the auditorium but they filled it up. They were great!
This video is excellent.
Lob is 64 years old and he still can’t be beat. I can’t believe what a great voice he still has. There are not too many singers in metal who can match his voice. And I hate to say it, but this 64 year old guy sings better than those Baby Metal chicks. For Bleaking the Raw, two of the Baby Metal chicks come out and play guitar! I love it! Sexy Jap chicks play heavy metal guitar! Incredible. The world is turning into a sci-fi novel.
Here they are again playing the same song, Breaking the Law, before a huge crowd at some unknown festival. There must be 100,000 people in that audience! I am not sure when this was but it was probably the early 1980’s because that is what Rob Halford looked like back then. The lead guitarist and the blond bass player are the same guys that I interviewed
Here is Motorhead covering the same song. I almost like this cover better than the original! At least I can hear the lyrics on this one.
