Whitesnake – The Thoughts of Pete Parlo

More videos from Pete Parlo from the Sea of Tranquility website, this time his love of Deep Purple is carried over into Whitesnake.

Thin Lizzy – What Pete Pardo Thinks

Another set of videos from Pete Pardo from the Sea of Tranquility website, this time looking at the hard rock band Thin Lizzy.

Over to Pete.

UFO – What Pete Pardo Thinks

Here is what Pete thinks.

Pete Pardo (from the Sea of Tranquility website) loves Black Sabbath. They are one of his favourite bands.

I’m not convinced the Ozzy Osbourne period produced a classic live album but the Ronnie James Dio era in the early 1980s gave the world Live Evil.

Here are Pete’s videos on Black Sabbath: Continue reading
