Radio XLVIII, side A, track 11: “Piece Of Me” by Skid Row

Skid Row - Piece Of MeOh, Skid Row, have you talked to Metallica about this song?  Because I’m pretty sure I heard a guitar riff on this that would later show up on “Enter Sandman” and it sounds kinda identical.  I’m surprised I didn’t notice it before, but I’ll be honest with you, Skid Row, I didn’t listen to this particular song a lot.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great tune, and as soon as I pressed Play I immediately remembered it.  This one just didn’t catch on like your other hits did.  Maybe it’s because it does sound much more Metallica-ish than your other songs.  Which again, isn’t a bad thing, but when you guys were singing angsty hard rock at your screechiest was when you were at the top of your form.  This one’s a little too growly for a Skid Row song in my humble opinion, Skid Row.

But back to that whole “Enter Sandman” business.  I don’t want to start any trouble.  I like both you guys.  But what with Robin Thicke and Pharrell having to shell out seven mil to Marvin Gaye’s family, I’m just sayin’.  I WOULD like a little taste of that, though.  Just a little finder’s fee.  A piece, if you will (see what I did there?).
