I have the signed Vintage & Rare from 2007 - I can't see that I would have paid £25 for it and I didn't even notice it was signed until some time later.

My first thought was Arrow Rock 2008. I didn't attend but a fantastic line up.

There are several stories of Gene's involvement with Smokehouse but I never heard anything about that extending into the 80s. Free has said that Gene was always helpful with his career and helped him land the gig with Shalamar, but I never heard that there was any continued contact between Gene and any other members of the band. Maybe the 80s version of the band submitted a demo to Simmons Record

Would prefer more of a hook and less repetitive verses but appreciate that the laid back approach is what he was going for. The sound and production are great for this kind of song. You should be proud, I would be.

If ever a band needed a firm hand it's EZN. I like Monaco but he's too talented in his own right to be scraping a meagre living working for Chip and singing Donnie's songs.

I bow down before the clown prince of putdowns. I commend you for getting as far as the topic of idiocy in your little book of insults, call me when you reach the topic of sarcasm and I'll see if I can dumb it down for you.

Maybe my memory's not that great - I only remember teenage girls sat on the stage ...... unless you were one back then Andy ? Ah, you came the scenic route, first left past the fortress of solitude and straight on through Brigadoon. I grew up in that theatre with family involved in numerous productions and my mum working there. I used to unofficially collect glasses from time to time .....

If we are playing a game of scoring questions, I would say that, on a scale of - 33 to + 36, your tone would score: Confrontation = +11 Disrespect = +5 Entitlement = + 17 Understanding of the priorities of others = -14 Giving you an overall score of mildly offensive but insufficient to waste time over.

It was the Civic Theatre (now the Victoria) not the town hall and it was a temporary floor covering the orchestra pit. If you can remember FM also blew out the power during the first song too. Gotta get off my arse and get DCD ordered. I was just listening to my White Sister Halifax boot over the weekend. What a band, what a voice.

Curiously this is available at HMV in Leeds whereas the new (UK) FM album isn't.

Pretty diverse bill. What's the deal with COP UK ? Don't they use the name Crimes of Passion anymore ?

Following the passing of AJ Pero "FOUR BY FATE is proud to announce platinum recording artist ROB AFFUSO (Skid Row) to the family. Rob will finish out the rest of the Four By Fate recordings and we will discuss the possibilities of touring together once we wrap up the new release."

The change of vocalist has piqued my interest to attend the next tour but the test is new material to me. With talented and individual vocalists of the calibre of Harnell appearing on so many tribute albums, I've become far too accustomed to this kind of thing.

I only allowed myself a brief listen to a couple of the samples several weeks ago because I prefer to hold out for the full impact of the CD release. That was enough to make me excited for this. It only happens a couple of times a year where I feel compelled to add a release date into my calendar at work ..... I know that's guaranteed to make the next six and a half weeks pass slowly.

Surprised that there's been little mention of Outloud's first time in the UK on here. They were fantastic in Sheffield last night, although it was a frustratingly short set. They would be a great addition to the Rockingham bill.

I bought it when it came out because I knew all the names of the bands featured but there was no way of hearing what they sounded like without paying import prices for their albums. Unfortunately every track was great so it didn't help at all. I still had to save up and spend silly money on Clear Approach, Rather be Rockin' etc.

Not after, during. There's an interview with Aldo sounding a bit taken aback by the fact that Kevin told him after a show one night that he couldn't play the following night's show as he flying out to LA for the audition.

Muse is better for cake than for CDs these days but both Sid (at Muse) and Steve (at X) are more than willing to offer discounts.

'cos it takes a year of hard work for the team involved, for no financial reward and they hardly get a chance to even see much of the show and after 10 years of putting their lives on hold they deserved a rest.

I can see that it's an added attraction for die-hards and I guess it's worth whatever people are willing to pay (Kiss had 700 attend their Tokyo meet and greet at $1000 each) but it appears that the Def Leppard package requires that the arena floor is seated in order to guarantee VIPs a seat in the first 10 rows, and that arrangement is not appealing to casual fans like me.

Gregg has other interests and has turned down all approaches to return to the stage. He may have been the leader of the band but if Angel and House of Lords can continue without him then I have no problem with this one off performance of Giuffria material by the rest of the band .......are we taking bets on Mr Ragno stepping in with a blonde bouffant ?

I do like the Rapture album, but it does sound more like a Sharleen Spiteri solo album than Romeo's Daughter's first two albums.

I had completely missed the fact that they were actually on stage at the same time. I thought the tour was two solo acoustic sets ...... now I'm interested.

I don't get AOR from those two tracks but I do get a delicious Magic Eight Ball/Manics/Jellyfish trifle.

Mr Martin seems a bit late to this particular party. We had 10 years of Firefest where it seemed pretty much every band had to wait for the drummer to reset their macbook and count in every song.

Sorry Scott. I was one of those that was considering attending last night but didn't. Some shows are just too far away on a school night these days. But I wanted to say that I really appreciate the effort that people like you put into the scene and you put forward a very fair minded explanation of how the economics of the scene works for you. I just checked the listings on Friday and Saturda

Sha Na Na needed a better manager if they got a smaller fee than Melanie. How many were in that band at the time ? 12 members ?
