I hope everyone here is familiar with the work of Mr. Rocky George.
He used to play lead for Suicidal Tendencies before they went down the trendy "punk" style with no lead breaks....
So disappointing when bands do that. (eg Metallica & the St. Anger album)

Suicidal Tendencies are pretty awesome. One of the few punk-metal bands in the world (but too bad they split). Love their energy. Why did they split?

ST are still releasing albums, but in the early 90's they changed more to punk style of music with minimal or no lead breaks. Rocky George left & Rob Trujillo now plays bass for metallica, I think. I still like their music, but it's just not the same without the atmospheric lead breaks of Rocky!

I actually liked them more when they switched to a more crossover approach. I like it more when thrash is closer to punk rather than metal.
