SolidRok / Solid Rock Heavy Metal Musique Plus

SolidRok Solid Rock emission Heavy Metal a Musique Plus


This was my show!!! 
SolidRok was a mythical French Canadian Heavy Metal TV show presenting exclusively Heavy Metal music videos, including hard rock and grunge.
Only the coolest stuff was there!!
If it was good enough for SolidRok!
It was good enough to listen!

Solid Rock or Solid Rok... 
Write it whatever you want I miss it so much!!
It was an era when music used to be fun!!!

Paul Sarrasin SolidRok Musique Plus

At 23 years old, Paul Sarrasin became the face of the emblematic Heavy Metal music videos program SolidRok as its main VJ from 1987 to the early 90s.

During the same period, American music channel MTV hosted the Headbangers Ball while the Canadian's MuchMusic hosted the Power Hour, I think?

Guns N' Roses members then and now

Here I'm talking about the five original Guns N' Roses members since I've never gave a damn about the many employees that followed.

It is surprising to see that despite years of heavy smoking, alcohol abuse, drug overdoses, party lifestyle and venereal diseases they still look good and "healthy".

Buckethead weird recording habits

It seem that Buckethead is as weirdo as he looks like. 

Buckethead trademark look: a KFC bucket, a Michael Myers Halloween mask, a yellow raincoat.

  1. Buckethead always wears a KFC bucket on his head.
  2. Buckethead always wears a Michael Myers-Halloween mask.
  3. Buckethead often wears a yellow raincoat.
  4. Buckethead communicates through a glove puppet??!!??
  5. Buckethead incorporates nunchaku and robot dancing into his stage performances... WTF????

Nonetheless, he will deliver better than anyone...

  • Buckethead is a virtuoso guitarist and multi-instrumentalist who has worked in several diverse styles of music.
  • Buckethead is extremely prolific!  Has released 265 studio albums, four special releases and one EP. He has also performed on more than 50 other albums by other artists. Wow! Astonishing!!

Buckethead chicken coop
Buckethead chicken coop...
Even better with a dog shit smell.

From 2000-2004, the prolific Buckethead aka Brian Patrick Carroll took Slash's place as Guns N' Roses lead guitarist. The fuckin' crazy eccentric musician reportedly had some very weird and unusual requests for recording his parts on the album 'Chinese Democracy'.
  • Buckethead insisted on recording his parts for Chinese Democracy in a specially built chicken coop decorated with rubber chicken parts.
  • When Axl's pet wolf puppy took a dump in Buckethead's cage, the guitarist refused to let anyone remove the turd, claiming that he loved the scent. 
  • Buckethead also kept a TV monitor in his coop that streamed constant hardcore porn. 

Another weird fact, is that W. Axl Rose was reportedly far more offended by the hardcore porn streaming than by the dog poop presence.

The moral of the story is:

Axl Rose prefers dog poop over hardcore porn!?!
