Whitesnake: Made In Japan....

Been listening to this 'live' (gnarly phlegm ridden cough) album and it's a weird one. Now, I didn't see them on the last tour but by all accounts Dave's voice is seriously ropey. So why on earth put out a live record? Seems a bit odd. Anyhow, for those who don't know better it doesn't sound too bad. The keys being lowered does see some songs lose a little sparkle, but you just can't fault the strength of the back catalogue with classic after classic - regardless of how live they are.

The biggest problem I have are the solos. Five bloody minutes of Doug and Reb doing their epileptic bumble bee shredding is tedious beyond words. I can't believe anyone still does this anymore. I get that Dave needs a break - but why don't they either a) play a medley of famous riffs to get the crowd pumping or b) seeing as they seem to be doing a lot of bv's - why not play a cover with one of them singing? Would be far more interesting than the mind numbing fretboard masturbation.

THEN - a whole 7 plus minutes of Brian Tichy playing a drum solo. It's enough to drain the life out of the most avid Snake fan. Sure, he's an impressive drummer, but FFS I'd rather watch how long paint can stay wet for.

Seriously, does anyone actually enjoy guitar and drum solos live anymore? Did they ever when not under the influence of certain substances? Genuinely curious here. Ah well, at least there wasn't a bass solo.


PS - I've been away for the best part of the last week and haven't been reading the board. Hope I haven't missed anything....
