My two cents - I've been lucky enough to have seen Bonnet, JLT and Doogie - fronted incarnations 1. Long Live Rock 'N' Roll 2. Rising 3. Down To Earth 4. Straight Between The Eyes 5. Stranger In Us All 6. Bent Out Of Shape 7. Finyl Vinyl 8. Difficult To Cure 9. RB's Rainbow 10. Live in Munich 11. On Stage Some of those choices are very hard to make! Even though Bonnet was quite un

I was lucky enough to see them here in New Zealand couple of years ago. Thought Adam was a superb fit and it was a great gig.

Hi Jake, I searched YT for some clips couldn't find any... could you post any you know of? I'm a big fan and would love to see some footage!

Yeah, Ozzy's not my fave either but as someone else mentioned, he is the original, has a unique voice and was an integral part of what made them Black Sabbath. Also one of my most important bands in my life and fully enjoyed them last month in Dunedin, New Zealand. Seems strange that I will likely never ever see them ever again. The UK tour news is what fans have been waiting for for a while and

Yeah, the vids leave something to be desired. The voice and the songs are another matter entirely. Great stuff.

There was a time when pretty much the only style I liked to listen to was shred. Things have changed but there is no question that that is still an aspect of playing I still really like to hear. It does have to be combined with melody though! I don't think there is really a single player named so far that I would say didn't deserve a place in someone's heart somewhere. I am surprised that a co

Great post Don! I identify with Don, SaintDavid and Rockdog on this one. I can hack some derivative sounding licks if the homage isn't too obvious and the delivery is good. Recent discoveries that fit that bill include Issa, Heat, Jorn and surely others... what I would say though is that the more AOR-centric acts do seem to be closer copycats so perhaps suffer more from that "unoriginal&q

I accept the videos are pretty "meh" but the voice is anything but and I like his style. Would love to see him in concert. He has an awesome band. Bit disappointed that Willy Frederiksen wasn't on drums for the whole album though. He is a great player.

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

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

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.
