Blue Blud

Hey bitches.


Hope everyone's having a bitchin' week, mines been alright, busy as always! 


So the other day, i done a post about Iron Maiden because they're awesome. I also mentioned a band called 'Blue Blud' (Think i misspelt it Blue Blood though) which was a band which was local to me and my dad was good friends with them. 




Anyway, i told you guys about how this band were actually gunning for the same music contract that Iron maiden were when they were trying to hit the big time. Unfortunately for Blue Blud, the music company chose Iron maiden and they were destined to stardom and Blue Blud was lost in the shadows. 




Now im not suggesting in anyway that Blue Blud should have been chosen over Iron maiden but what i am saying is that its incredibly unfortunate this band never got the true recognition it deserved. An awesome band that just didnt quite make it. 




This has got me thinking though, how many other great bands are there out there that just arent going to make it to the big time. It's incredibly sad that stories like this probably happen 10 times more than we actually imagine. Ah well.


Any of you guys got any awesome local bands or bands who just didnt make it that you'd wish to share?

  1. I dig these guys. I will always have respect for the classics, even if they didn't make it big.

  2. The great thing today is that it's way easier to get your music out. YouTube is a great tool for that, and the fact that you can have your music uploaded to Spotify and other music services help as well.

  4. Hey bud! I've played in a few bands for about ten years, but my most popular creation was a punk band, People Die. Check us out here! http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/32235

  5. Look up some videos of Dagger's Edge sometime. They were a band that fell by the wayside much like Blue Blud did. I only know about them because I'm friends with their original singer's son. (If you look at their Encyclopedia Metallum article he's the blond buy in front.) He's now a taxidermist in a small town in Southern Missouri. He said he's kind of glad they didn't take off. If they had he never would have met his wife, and he never would have had his three sons.

  8. A couple of bands I've been tight with had the sound, talent, and showmanship required to make it but lacked the cohesion that is in every band that stays together. Pity.

  10. Iron Maiden were signed to EMI in 1979 and Blue Blud formed in 1987. I think you're confusing BB with Trespass, a band some of the guys were previously involved with.
