Clas­sic Al­bums fea­tur­ing… Jimmy DeGrasso

Rhythm - - BEAT! -

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’
