Since the posting of a vintage Dokken performance on American Bandstand seemed to elicit a positive reaction, and bring up happy memories. I thought I would post a few more classic American Bandstand clips.

In addition, poster Ray, was kind enough to send along a link to some classic Solid Gold performances. Thank you, Ray.

Hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend.

    I used to enjoy watching American Bandstand. Yes, Dana, good find on some of these vintage performances. Though I wouldn’t consider this tribute version of KI$$ to be “vintage” :o)

    I also remember watching and enjoying a program called Rockworld with an opening theme song of same name. “There’s a place I want to take you….”. Does anybody know who performed that song, and is that song available on any format?

    Also Don Kirchner’s Rock Concert was another rock TV show I enjoyed watching. I remember trying to take pictures of the TV screen to capture the band images…pictures never came out good, though.

    Thanks for bringing back great memories, Dana.

    Kinda unrelated to the videos, but I believe Detroit Rock City is one of the best rock songs of all time.

    Wow, Craig,

    Lucky you, I wish I saw Def Leppard on the Pyromania tour. I am dripping with envy. 🙂

    D 🙂
