They did that a lot didn't they - just bin material. Ridiculous when you think how much time/money went into staging it. Do you know the reason that Love's No Friend and Man on the silver Mountain didn't make it to the CD? I played it today and it is a strong performance all in all. Could have done without the solo excesses but otherwise a damn fine performance.

Know it's been out for a while but bought it on impulse yesterday. Thought the set list on the CD was a bit off and lo and behold there are 2 songs missing - Love's No Friend, and Man On The Silver Mountain. Grrr. Why were these left off the CD. Don't get me started on the DVD. Even more grrr!

Royal Hunt supporting Pretty Maids in Copenhagen 2002. One of my top 5 gigs of all time. They absolutely ruled. Left after about 6 songs by Pretty Maids, not because they were especially bad but there was just no following that!

...looking through that list and talking to a visiting student who is also a hard rock fan, I am SO LUCKY in having seen more or less all the bands I have ever wanted to see, some more than once. Of all those mentioned above, probably only Montrose ('though I DID get to see Gamma who were amazing). I've never seen Led Zep either but that doesn't bother me too much. Bands I have yet to see but

Hey thanks for posting. I must admit I don't think I've listened to more than a handful of notes from Wishbone Ash in my whole life but I've seen various comments over the years about the guitar playing and the link you sent to "Persephone" is pretty cool. I will check out their stuff and maybe let everyone know how I get on with it. Thanks!

For me it's Gamma 2 all the way. 1 and 3 have some good songs but 2 is perfection. Was lucky enough to see them on tour that year - amazing. Still remember Voyager to this day. Wish there was a decent live recording of that era. I found 4 very disappointing but might revisit it given this thread. RM is a sad loss to this genre. RIP.

My gut reaction is "yes". A couple of years ago I took lessons from a 25 year old Canadian who had been playing for 10 years and was simply amazing. Tuition has I think always been leaps and bounds ahead in certain countries that just seem to teach and inspire in the right way. Growing up in the UK music lessons at school were bloody hopeless.

OMG 2017 is looking as bleak as 2016... too many legends, icons, heroes.... RIP John. As with all the others you will live on through your music...

Sad to hear this. The Sabbath albums he played on are among my favourites. RIP Geoff, gone too soon.

Saw them in Dunedin last year. Great gig and I agree with you, too bad they didn't play anything from 13... I still cannot believe it's all gonna be over. Love 'em or hate 'em they are living legends to whom we owe...probably everything...! I reckon they will remain musically active at least individually.

I saw him 2 years ago, last gig of the Bridge The Gap tour and he was brilliant. Totally back on form. I think the Temple of Rock band has been the saving of him.

I agree, this is a fine album. Don't forget that Ken Mary played drums on a few songs including The Hunger. I absolutely rate Mikkey Dee, but take a listen to that drum intro to The Hunger and tell me Ken Mary isn't as good... very underrated IMHO. I agree with some comments of other here, this is likely the last, most consistently good album DD released.

The new Halestorm covers EP. Preordered and paid for. Just seem them support Devilskin here in NZ and both bands raised the roof. Probably the finest female singers in heavy rock/metal today.

What a great thread idea! If I thought longer and harder I'm sure I could come up with more but off the cuff... I think Royal Hunt are underrated. I loved their stuff with John West best, if I'm honest, and "The Mission" possibly tops that bill; yet it has an appreciation among the fans that perhaps "Eyewitness" doesn't. Eyewitness is possibly their most adventurous album w

Very sad indeed. Leonard Haze wasn't just legendary - in my view and many other drummers and musicians he was a phenomenon with possibly the fastest single bass drum pedal work in the world. Check out "Forever" for proof. RIP Leonard. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tS06pQJrZdo

I really rated him from 1986-1997 and liked most of the Doogie White stuff too. But thought Alchemy was abysmal and everything since and including Perpetual Flame has basically really sucked, though Red Devil was ok. Fave songs? Think the first 7 would always make the list....

Thank you so much for posting this! I'd gone through a bit of rediscovery with the 'Head and they really did have some great songs. Great tribute and the other thing I'd mused over for a while was how well Klaus Meine's voice has held up. Really liked the last couple of Scorps albums too...great band...

Been musing on this a while. Music is cyclical and arguably each decade has an artist that may have dominated the scene for a generation, or simply put dominated your listening for a decade or maybe more. Which artist of the decade was it for you? Here are mine! 1970s - Black Sabbath. Even though I probably got into them later, there is no way I could live without their music in all its f

I've been lucky enough to have seen them "back in the day" and twice in the last 5-6 years. Anns voice is still amazing, I concur with the song selection though. Better choices on the tour before. I pay to see Heart, not Heart play Led Zep, good as it is!

If we're talking from new-ish releases then for me it would be a few from Jorn's Heavy Rock Radio album. I Know That Something's Going On and Live To Win are probably my faves right now.

...all these comments are as pertinent for Mr Yngwie J Malmsteen who, despite still being an incredible musician, struggles to compose anything meaningful these days. His latest album, World on fire, should be renamed World of Sh!t IMHO. How the mighty have fallen. Once upon a time I bought everything he put out. What a waste. It's a wonder he and Tate can live on the same continent the size t

Alkatrazz - Live in Tokyo is waaay superior to Live Sentence and IMHO one of Graham Bonnet's more consistent live performances. It is also a full concert rather than the truncated "LS". I don't have it but there is also a Foreigner live album from about 1983 that I think would be pretty cool. There are albums out there I would love to have digitally that are not in print. Top of m
