Rock N Roll Heaven - Clark NJ

My brother Darin bought a dvd burner recently and has started transferring our old VHS tapes over to dvd. He is also going to be posting some stuff up on youtube and this right here is the first rip that he has completed. What we have is a news segment on Channel 4 news in NY back in the 80's I guess. The segment is about Heavy Metal and the record store Rock n Roll Heaven which was owned by Johnny Z who also owned Megaforce records. Anyway, it is cool for me to see this clip after many many years, and it really brings back some memories. I used to drive over an hour 1 way to go to RnR Heaven whenI was a teenager and I bought 100's of killer metal records there back in the day. God, I wish I could go back in time for just one more shopping spree in that awesome store. Hey Jeff I know you remember this place...Dave G.

Just watched a documentary yesterday called Get Thrashed that's a brief history of thrash metal. The drummer for Overkill was one of the producers and it was actually pretty decent and worth seeing.

Get Thrashed is a really good documentary. I have the dvd which includes something like 90 minutes of bonus footage.

Cool, thanks for posting this. I was a regular at both RnR Heaven's, the place was a gold mine of treasures. They don't make 'em like that anymore.
