Classic Albums featuring… Jimmy DeGrasso
1 SUICIDAL FOR LIFE (1994) SUICIDAL TENDENCIES
The punk-thrash crossover heavyweights’ angriest, least accessible album, but the playing and musicianship are strong. Album highlights include ‘Two Worlds Collide’ and ‘Depression And Anguish’. Great playing from Jimmy.
Key Track: ‘Don’t Give A F**k’
2 A FISTFUL OF ALICE (1997) ALICE COOPER
Superb live outing for the shock-rock legend, recorded at Sammy Hagar’s Cabo Wabo cantina in Mexico. Guest appearances from Slash, Rob Zombie and Hagar as Alice and the band blast out hits including ‘School’s Out’ and ‘Under My Wheels’.
Key Track: ‘No More Mr Nice Guy’
3 THE WORLD NEEDS A HERO (2001) MEGADETH
Megadeth returned to their metal roots, although the production and music are not as aggressive as early efforts like Peace Sells. DeGrasso keeps things solid and heavy, and the album entered the US Billboard charts at No. 16. Key Track: ‘Moto Psycho’
