Opium For The Masses was one of those WTF!! albums for me that I couldn't believe came from the same band - I binned it , didn't even try to sell it LOL.

I like Blood but find the debut a bit better - Dark Side of Babylon would probably be my fave BMR track but there are a couple of rippers on Blood too..

My most listened to Doug album would likely be Lion - Trouble In Angel City.......he never played better and the songs are on average very good. Not a fan of the earlier Lion stuff - I remember paying a fortune for Dangerous Attraction back in the day (when stuff like that, Dare BFS and Lillian Axe: Love and War used to go for mega bucks)

I like most of his earlier stuff - I like the Hurricane a lot - but don't tend to pull out the Whitesnake or Burning Rain stuff as often as to me he has become a bit repetitive with the bluesy rock stuff. The solo albums are average for the most part and show his songwriting limitations.

When he's ON he's awesome though and one of my faves .

Sahara was also a good performance by him , even though not well acknowledged.

I used to have (not sure where now) 2-3 demos he did with Ralph Saenz from Steel Panther which weren't too bad - might have produced a good band if persisted with?
