Spot on Tony!

Anybody (including many industry people) that saw The Answer and Heavens Hurricane Party/Roadstar live (circa 2006-2010..whenever Heavanz left) will know who had the x-factor, the charisma/personality, the stage presence, songs the vibe that these guys could be huge. Most people I know that saw HP/RS saw them as a very cool blend of AC/DC, LEPPARD, UFO. You got the sense that those guys with the right push might the next Brit rock band that can crack America.

Two things went against them..a name change as it was feared following a disaster in the USA that Hurricane Party was in bad taste (clearly the industry folk had their eye on America) and The Answer were, or someone in their camp was..got EVERY decent support slot going for several years. HP/RS lost momentum and some heart and began to splinter.

I truly believe had the good support slots been shared with HP/RS, things may have been different. Those guys would have gone down a storm at AC/DC shows, they were like watching DEF LEP circa High And Dry/Pyromania. Great band, great songs, great stage presence and singer that was a natural frontman. They are defo the band that should've been...

Shame.
