Introducing a new feature, the Classic Video of the Week! Every Wednesday, we'll present a clip from the Roadrunner vaults that we think deserves a return to the spotlight. And we couldn't kick this off with anyone but the man who did so much to put Roadrunner on the map in its earliest days - King Diamond! Whether with Mercyful Fate or as a solo act, the King was one of the artists most strongly identified with Roadrunner in the 1980s, and "The Family Ghost" was the first single from his landmark 1987 concept album, Abigail. Look closely - King Diamond's drummer, Mikkey Dee, is currently pounding the kit for Motörhead!
King Diamond's five Roadrunner albums - Fatal Portrait, Abigail, Them, Conspiracy and The Eye - are all compiled in the digital boxed set The Complete Roadrunner Collection 1986-1990, available now in the Roadrunner webstore!
