        ZZ Top still doing well on the Rock Chart without making a proper breakthrough on the national charts. I remember seeing the video for 'TV Dinners' on one of those Saturday morning childrens TV programmes that were broadcast in early 1984. All three singles released so far from the 'Eliminator' album had made the national Singles chart but all three had failed to get anywhere near the top 40. I wonder if the label felt at this point like it was time to give up on trying to break the band in the UK... the band had been trying for over a decade by this point to have a proper UK hit.

          Yes, I remember Gimme All Your Lovin and Sharp Dressed Man getting plenty of exposure on initial release but only seriously charting a year or so later. (Similar thing happened with the first two singles from Bruce Springsteen's Born in the USA around the same time).

          The material from Eliminator was certainly a departure from the group's traditional sound (and there's an ongoing debate around how much uncredited outside input there was!)

          Still, ZZ Top have been around for half a century with no personnel changes and that just has to be a record...

                    Yes, and that single is destined for a long run in these charts - I'm going to be typing a lot of asterisks...

                        Former members of legendary rock bands entering the Rock chart in the same week: Snowy White was briefly part of Thin Lizzy, Fastway included "Fast" Eddie Clarke who had recently left Motorhead and Di'Anno is Paul Di'Anno who was lead singer with Iron Maiden from 1977-1981.

                          Snowy White was a good guitarist but just didn't fit Lizzy - I remember seeing the band live during his tenure and thinking he lacked stage presence and just looked out of place.

                          Fastway were founded by Fast Eddie Clarke and Pete Way of UFO - Way left the band before they recorded anything but they retained the name!
                          Their debut album was really strong but they couldn't maintain the momentum...

                          It's a shame Paul Di'Anno never found any real solo success as his two albums with Iron Maiden were classics. "Heartuser" is pretty weak - anonymous and seemingly pitched at the American mainstream. He subsequently reverted to more appropriate material but seemed to spend much of his later career recording for Maiden tribute albums!

                                I thought I would have no recollection of 'Thunder On The Tundra' by Thor until I looked it up on YouTube. Yup, I definitely remember the song, probably from being played on the jukebox in one of the rock pubs in Newcastle that I would sometimes have a drink (or three!) in at the time. Possibly the Broken Doll (a brilliant pub, now sadly long gone) or The Jubillee (now called Trillians).

                                I also had to check out 'It's My Life' by Wendy O Williams just to confirm she hadn't recorded a cover of the then recent Talk Talk track..!

                                  The one thing everybody knew about (Jon Mikl) Thor was his ability to blow up and burst hot water bottles on stage with lung power alone!

                                  He also starred in a daft but fun horror film called Rock'n'Roll Nightmare (AKA The Edge of Hell) that was all over the video shops at the time.

                                    None of which were in the national Top 100 singles this week....

                                    Pet Hate are the latest to revive an early 70s glam classic - their cover of Mott the Hoople's second best single follows the original pretty closely (until the "talking bit" near the end, that is....)

                                      …… but a surprisingly modest debut for Maiden's Doomsday Clock classic.

                                        Unimaginatively chosen cover version from Ireland's Mama's Boys, though their arrangement is (slightly) more interesting than QR's...

                                                    ZZ Top become the first act to reclaim the top spot on these charts, edging out Maiden and their Battle Of Britain classic.

                                                    Yet another glam rock cover version - Swiss band Krokus try their hand at the Sweet favourite.
