It's better to rein in hell than to rule in heaven

So do any of you elder riders remember a song from around 25+ years ago with that as a chorus. Was a mellow rock song if I remember rightly

Itís a misquote from Paradise Lost, John Milton. I remember him when he were a lad, just before the civil war and that whippersnapper Cromwell. 😁

Never heard it in a song lyric but thatís because I donít listen to mellow rock. 😂

Paradise Lost! That pretty much makes you a living fossil Gareth!  :P ;D  I wouldn't have called it mellow rock though  :D
