The show then looks at the recent documentary “Tuff Luck”, headed up by Andrew Klein, the younger brother of TUFF LUCK drummer, the late Todd Kelly. Klein explains, “The film will focus on Tuff Luck’s formation, rise, and eventual demise while also drawing attention to a once thriving and vital music scene in Florida”.
Based in South Florida, the aptly named TUFF LUCK are a true lost treasure of the 80s Metal scene, and the documentary is a must for fans of that era. Featuring three virtuoso musicians and a charismatic frontman, Tuff Luck became the hottest attraction on the local music scene, routinely drawing thousands of fans to their gigs, supporting Dokken and Stryper, and releasing an album on Ann Boleyn’s underground label, New Renaissance Records. Sadly, the big break they deserved eluded them. Guitarist Dave Scott discusses the band and the documentary, along with three vintage Tuff Luck songs. (More info at http://www.tuffluck.net )

Tony also chooses classic VENOM numbers from the “Prime Evil” and “Welcome To Hell” albums.
