Hey, that's a pretty good omen for the new album, don't you think? Killer solo as well! Terrible video though!What do you reckon?

I love to browse so I would be interested to see this doco. Shops like this are few and far between now, there is Penny Lane here in NZ which is great, Real Groovy before that... Tower in London was always a bit too pricey for my liking though, but now there is next to nothing... I was lucky to visit the US last year, a town in Indiana called West Lafayette. Man. There were 3 good old-fashioned r

It is a shame James continues to have issues. It is a great gig for Mikkey Dee who is a DAMN fine drummer!

Y'know, I'm not the biggest AC/DC fan but I like them and I know there are fans out there for whom the relationship runs real deep. Come on folks I see plenty of evidence for similar if not more worship for Boston, Foreigner, Leppard, Sabbath... if a fan wants to express themselves like this let 'em! It's not hurting anyone and to be honest, I saw a lot of merit in some of the ideas put forward.

...if Axl is supposed to be fronting the AC/DC shows, where are the rest of AC/DC? Or was the Coachella thing a one off with G n R and Angus a special guest? For the record, I thought it sounded OK. No better than that. But I agree with most others that there's something just wrong about the way Brian's been treated.

Jorn is quite a new discovery for me, bizarrely I have really enjoyed the Allen/Lande albums for some years but never really listened to his solo material! I have seen many good reviews for Ark and Masterplan. I seem to remember checking both out briefly but never really hitting the spot. I must give those another go. I have most of the solo albums from The Duke onwards; excluding the Dio t

I am generally very skeptical of covers but I must say I enjoy Jorn's versions. It was probably his version of Thin Lizzy's "Are you ready" that really sold me. The "Heavy Rock Radio" track listing includes: 01. I Know There's Something Going On 02. Running Up That Hill 03. Rev On The Red Line 04. You're The Voice 05. Live To Win 06. Don't Stop Believin' 07.

I have this on DVD - think it's one of the last (the last?) gigs with Viv before they got Craig Goldy in. I seem to remember there is a bit where RJD calls VC an asshole so I guess things weren't all that happy... I just got Dio live in Philly - still Sacred Heart tour but with Goldy now switched in. They do Time To burn and I must say Craig went up in my estimations considerably. I've always

...Ann Wilson (Heart) yet? She is 98% as good as she ever was. Nancy too come to that. Glenn Hughes mentioned before gets my vote too. And the sadly departed Ronnie James Dio was possibly the king of them all. Never ever heard a duff note from him in the years I saw him and just listen to his back catalogue. He was 67 when he passed away.

Their music has never done much for me but (a) the drummer is amazing and (b) the doco is my favourite film about music ever. I love the brotherhood between Lips and Rob and the tour just has to be seen to be believed. And the positivity of Lips, no matter what... it's funny, it's touching and inspiring and cheers me up just thinking about it! I may not be a fan but I also love the fact it got th

Hmm. I love More Than A Feeling and on that basis alone, and of course the sheer adulation that was poured on the first album and it's successor, bought both. There isn't a single song on either of those albums that even comes close for me to the quality of MTAF. In fact there isn't really another song full stop that stands out on those. Understandably I haven't invested in anything else! But for

Yes, a sadly underrated version of the Sabs and Cross Purposes has some great songs. Cross of Thorns and I Witness spring immediately to mind... oh, a glorious ballard, Dying For Love too. You should be able to pick up a live DVD from that tour cheap, though oddly enough it doesn't have all the songs the original video did! It does however contain a live version of Anno Mundi, not on the Cross Pu

Budgie with John was the only version I ever saw and I loved them. Those albums are just great - especially Power Supply with the "If Swallowed..." EP included. Saw them many times back in the day at the Marquee and bloody loved them. To this day the only band that ever made me move from the front row for being too loud!!! RIP John, gone but not forgotten... thanks for the great time
