Well I'm a relative newcomer to Jorn's solo material and while I accept the comments on the video, really like his style. Really like what I've heard so far so it's a must buy for me.

Saw them supporting Sabbath here in NZ. Good musicians, good singer, but my take was they were all trying hard to be Led Zep - without the songs to get them there. Competent but not my cup of tea.

Unbelievable. Songs with THAT VOICE get played almost every day in my house and the day after days in which that doesn't happen... two get played. Gone but not forgotten and likely never will be. RIP RJD.

I didn't know Crash and Burn was from this album but have always liked that song since I got it from MR-X moons ago. "MM" is my least favourite Foreigner album - took me a long time to even to begin to appreciate it but a couple of songs grab me and Running The risk is the one I really like on it. In general this strikes me as one of those albums people generally love or hate.

Random play on the iPod today brought "Ready, Willing and Able" by Montrose out of the speakers. Boy what a riff! I have this as a song from "The best of Montrose" but the album it comes from - Mean - is OOP and selling for quite high prices. I found some reviews on Amazon but would be interested in opinions here, and also if anyone knows anything about a possible re-releas

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.
