1988, Kerrang!, Uncle Sam

I stumbled across Uncle Sam back in the 80's by reading a review in KERRANG! one of metal's finest publication from the U.K. Although during the Grunge age KERRANG! wasn't as colorful as in the 80's but then Grunge was the flannel period. Funny I had to read a British magazine to introduce me to Uncle Sam who are from Rochester, New York.
I don't know much about them other than a few articles I have collected through out the years.
Uncle Sam spokesman guitarist Larry Miller who resembles Slash with the influences of the 70's bands such as Alice Cooper, MC5, Iggy Pop & The Stooges. The other members include singer Scott Cessna who leaves after his debut. Bass player Dave Gentner later takes over lead vocals on their second album. Drummer G. Avery Brisk who leaves after their return to the States and gets replaced by Jeff Man on their second album.

Uncle Sam have put out only three albums which is a shame cause these recordings are better than any bands that have a major label deal. 
I ended up buying the debut LP then years later on CD
along with remaining releases by Uncle Sam.

The following article was cut out of Kerrang!

1987, MRV, No Shame

No Shame was on the back of a Gary Moore article I posted early on.
No Shame is an all female band compared to Bon Jovi, Poison, Crue etc...
I haven't heard them so don't know how true it is.

1977, Jethro Tull British Tour 77, tour book

I did see Tull in concert but 10 years later.
I found this tour book at a record shop for a few bucks.
It was sometime in the 80's.

I believe Jethro Tull were promoting
"Songs From The Wood" LP release.
The book is 22 pages including the inside front & back cover page.

I don't know if the page below was an error.
There is a blank spot that looks like a photo should appear in it. 
Was this suppose to be a photo of the band?
