Ambitious - a couple of 13,000 seaters. Quite a step up from their usual headlining shows in the UK. I wish them every success. Have they ever headlined this size of venue before ?

Certainly there's a few duff lines in some songs but given Ace's limitations as a singer I'm actually pretty impressed with his vocals. Live his delivery has been very poor in recent years - the guy's mic technique is the worst of anybody I can think of, but he's surprised me with this album.I'm enjoying most of the songs and the guitar is great throughout.

Thanks for introducing me to the mag Nick - what a great read and loving the embedded music, cos most of the featured bands I wouldn't usually bother with. I have Ace's album on order so I'll expect it early next week. I like the clips I've heard but it doesn't sound heavier than Anomaly to me. I hear the Frehley's Comet debut but with more aggressive solos but I take your word for it as you've

Tough Love, Cold Hearted, Wildside, Crosstown Train, Metropolis, Over You, may have been more that I can't recall now. A very balanced set in my mind. I would say that the newer songs went down just as well as the old.

Not that much of a surprise as he's local and joined the band in Manchester and Bingley in the last couple of years .... but they were great as always last night - Let Love be the Leader was particularly awesome.

The people of Glasgow should be very proud. It was a great Games and the city put on a really good show.I haven't been there in 20 years but we're now looking to come up for a long weekend, perhaps around the Who show. Having worked on this year's Tour de France I have a new appreciation of the tremendous effort it takes from the organising committee, local authorities, volunteers, transport,

Good point. The "un-edited" version is a bonus track on the vinyl.

Contrary to Ace's hype some of it sounds more like the debut Comet album than the 78 solo album and definitely not heavier than Anomaly as suggested.

These were additional dates. It's a pity 'cos they were really good in Sheffield and I had planned to go to Wakefield too. Also a pity as York is where Stuart grew up. Fibbers has cancelled way too many shows in the last 12 months.

Great interview Paul. Interesting point about being invited to rehearsal and helping out with the arrangement of Hide your Heart, only for Tommy to play it like Ace ... Cool choice of songs too.

From the Kansas Facebook page: On June 30, 2014, Steve Walsh informed the members of KANSAS that he is resigning from the band. His last performance with KANSAS will be August 16, 2014, in Sioux City, Iowa, at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. As KANSAS continues on, the band wishes Steve only the best in his future endeavors, and thanks him for the 41 years.

He claimed that he had poured water down himself to wash away the fake blood he just spat that was sticky and uncomfortable. Although I've never heard that he's done it before, it makes sense as the bass solo preceded I Love it Loud, the song before Hide Your Heart.

It's even more obvious when the sound is accompanied by the posturing, similar clothes and the same model of guitar. I saw 'Seventy Seven open for DAD earlier in the year, forget about Airbourne, these guys really do rip off AC/DC. And then there's Orchid with their Sabbath fixation.

I was thinking about this on the drive to work this morning. My preference would be for 10 tracks / 40 minutes for an album. I was listening to the (13 track) Unisonic album at the time, by the way. I've lost count of the number of times I've played an album in recent years and thought I know the first 9 or 10 songs on this album but I don't think I've ever got round to playing the last 4 trac

Never really taken to Brit prog, with the exception of Pure Reason Revolution and some Pineapple Thief, but this new Touchstone video has at least got me thinking about attending one of their shows in June. Contact

TLV were pretty good but seen it all before. Probably about 40 of us in the venue. As for Eden's Curse, there was a post last week on their Facebook page asking whether anybody would be interested in the live stream. When I last looked I don't think anybody had responded. I would have thought that EC would attract a bit of interest around the globe.

Own both albums and seen them live a couple of times. I think they'll develop but I've been disappointed with the pedestrian pace of the show both times.

Can we call Radar Love a White Lion song ? - that was the only one they played, and we also got an Reo Speedwagon song too. I thought their one original song was good though. BTW - it seemed like the majority of that 75 strong crowd was there for one of the support bands - Steroid Freak Pussy.

My opinion: Good points - Guitars are more of a classic earthy hard rock sound than recent releases. There are a few attempts at new things for Kiss - acoustic solo, gospel style backing vocals, brass section. Bad points: Production is poor as it's basically and album of demos. Gene's songs are especially unfocussed lyrically, just random catch phrases. The cover is crap. Rise to it -

To my ears The Elder, Killers / Creatures and Lick it up are very strong but after that Kiss' identity was diluted as they attempted to keep pace with bands that had been partly inspired by them and had surpassed them in sales. Gene wasn't committed to the band and was submitting songs that were sub par, whilst Paul was trying to steady the ship by writing songs that copied Bon Jovi, Def Leppa

I'd have prefered Kiss to decline the award but at least Paul did use his speech to explain the problem he has with the Hall of Fame and to call for them to change their nomination and induction policy so that genuine music fans are involved in the decision rather than exclusively the current elitist panel.

That's actually cheaper than I was expecting ..... but I'm still not buying. As for the 40th anniversary, LA Kiss and Rock n Brews seem to have been a bit of a distraction for Gene and Paul. We're in April and Gene has just begun soliciting ideas from fans for ways to celebrate.

I'm not familiar with DDY's band but I thought exactly the same when I saw the pictures. It seems like an extreme case of brand preservation, like when both Smashing Pumpkins and Coal Chamber replaced bass players they had to be female. I see it as just as blatant as newer members of Kiss wearing previous members make up.
