Nar, apart from 'The Zoo', nothing seemed to get a big response until Wind of Change
Does not surprise me in some respects, what songs do `most` know? Wind/Hurricane and perhaps The Zoo, `Is there anybody there` was top 40 back in the day
Blue Oyster Cult? The Reaper/Godzilla and Burnin for you perhaps
UFO? Rock Bottom, Doctor Doctor and Lights Out
Europe? Erm Final Countdown
Is it just the old boys and girls who knew every TS song Dee sang not just `were not gonna take it` and ` I wanna rock`?
Is this a fair indication?
I knew every TS song Dee sang. Woop woop!
So did I. I'll admit that I'm more of fan of Twisted Sister than I am of the Scorpions but I'm not unfamiliar with them. In fact, even knowing more songs than just 'Hurricane', 'Wind of Change' and 'Big City Nights' puts me in the minority when compared to most of my more 'metal' friends at Bloodstock.
In fact, pretty much everything Dee Snider did got a reaction from the crowd but that's less about being overly familiar with the material than it is about how engaging and high-energy his performance was. Whereas Scorpions just came across as tired old men living off past glories for a lot of the set.
