Very sad. Such an icon and always struck me as such a nice guy with heaps of time for the fans and integrity too. Right down to his last tweet - incredible. Thanks for all the good times you gave the world, Leonard. RIP.

- the other ones I've played that have gone down well include Cold As Ice and I Want You To Want Me. You Really Got Me too. All Day And All Of The Night less so.

In my humble experience it really depends on: where you are (eg US, UK, NZ; sometimes even down to city) Where you play and what their expectations are I play in a covers band and have been in a tribute band too. With a tribute, folk know what they're gonna get so if you're in a tribute to Free/Journey/Sabbath/Iron Butterfly and a punter doesn't LIKE Free/Journey/Sabbath/Iron Butterfly the

Cool as and a mightily impressive cymbal set up! That array of Zildjian's would NOT be cheap... but they should last forever... love that brand...

Yeah I'd agree with that. I do like her material and Crossfire (her latest) is very consistent. Well worth a listen if you like 80s Heart etc. I did check out Maragold - I really liked Greg Howe's Howe II album years back, he's a great guitarist, Maragold has indeed got a great singer but the material doesn't appeal to me. Bit too funky for my liking.

Saw them do that on the Mechanix tour... don't think I've seen them do it since then! Nice version of Try Me as well! Thanks for posting Scott!

To each their own but this to me was the weakest ever album from WS. Only song I really like is Crying. MR-X had a performance from this tour too, last gig I think... very lacklustre and everyone sounds tired and fed up. Not their finest hour. Before you ask, I like both original and "rebooted" incarnations...but not this!

I do like Jugulator, Demolition not struck on. But he was damn good with them live and Metal Meltdown '98 is a great live album.

Compared to the "halcyon days" of the 80s and early 90s there are a lot more acts coming through with great sounding female vocalists fronting them. I just realised - think probably most of the newer bands who have really impressed me the last few years are of that ilk; Within Temptation Issa Devilskin Halestorm Just an observation. Not sure what to make of it!

I must say the more I play it, the more I like it. At first I thought it good but rather formulaic, which may well be the case but it is a very solid collection of well-crafted songs! Her debut made a big impression on me though so my expectations have always been high. Crossfire is however very consistent. Don't think I've come across anything I don't like yet. Woody, what are these other son

Of those, Angel... is the only one I own since I checked out the others and didn't really hear anything I thought worthy. The production on Nostradamus in particular I thought made it virtually unlistenable. The post-reunion live album, A Touch Of Evil - Live, is worth a mention though. Contains some lesser known tracks performed really well including Prophecy from Nostradamus which, live, is

Bought it yesterday and have played it a couple of times. Possibly her most consistent album with no songs at this point identifying themselves as ones that wouldn't make it to the playlist; a few (Crossfire, Long Time Coming, Raintown) especially powerful.

Yeah he was very talented. Seems like such a sad end and a terrible waste. The indications are that he took his own life, not confirmed of course but just the evidence. RIP Mats, you will be missed...

Over the years I've heard good things, checked out the occasional video and thought "nah, not quite for me". Well I've made a concerted effort to listen to the albums and am thinking... wow! Always knew Lizzy Hale was a great singer but there isn't a single song on either of the two albums I don't like. That's something of a record for me. Incredibly melodic stuff but heavy too. The bal

Once I got past the celtic flutes and typical Irish lilting melody, I quite enjoyed it. Great video! Will await the album with interest.

Have to go back to it. From memory on a track by track basis I thought they were pretty similar with to be honest many songs on each I didn't rate too highly... but "Heart Turns To Stone" on I.I. is a favourite of mine. They do an acoustic version of Say You Will live and it rocks big time.

As others have said, I doubt folk buy Scorps albums for the insightful lyrical content (although they do have a few that are above par) but their music is instantly identifiable and have written so many great riffs even I would forgive them the cheese! Have they totally given up on touring? I haven't seen them in like 30 years but if MSG were anything to go by, I reckon they can still pull it

...for one thing, if Brian wants to retire and do something different, then let us not forget he has given us some AMAZING music and show him the courtesy and respect I feel he deserves. Let us also not forget this guy has a brain - he has a PhD in astrophysics which is no mean feat, and whatever you may feel about his political aspirations, I feel his actions are heartfelt, irrespective of how p

In brief I really like the War Of Kings song. But I am among those who prefer "new" Jaded Heart to the "old" JH. I like a range of Europe songs from Final Countdown through to PIP but Wings of Tomorrow didn't quite do it for me and as for the debut... sorry but that met my definition of "dreadful"! WOK is to these ears less grungey than Start From The Dark which w
