Tony, I just wanted to say that I think 'Firefly' is so much better than a lot of people give it credit for. I loved old TNT but 'Firefly', although certainly not perfect, is a great record and one I still listen to quite often. When I first heard it I thought to myself "FINALLY - there's a great band from the 80's that's doing something new and still writes great songs." And it was still unmistakably TNT - yet different. Eclectic in a Saigon Kick kind of way - one of the greatest modern rocks bands, period. I wish you would've continued on and progressed further - TNT certainly had the talent to be whatever they wanted to be from a talent level and creative point of view. It is disturbing to me that both the industry and especially the fans don't seem to be able to let go of what they think a band should be and effectively make it impossible for bands to be truly creative, introduce new influences, etc. - a thinking and attitude that didn't seem to exist on such a scale back in the 70's/early 80's. Had things been as rigid back then, Black Sabbath would've had to break up after 'Heaven & Hell' because it was such as departure from Ozzy era BS. Instead it proved to be a lifeline for Sabbath and we all got a hell of a lot of great music out of it. I wish the same could've happened for TNT rather than having to be so calculating in order to stay alive financially. Looking forward to another TNT album down the line - one made on your own terms, of course. Until then - good luck with Westworld.
