Seen them a couple of times but can't get into the band. Too far at the folky end of prog for me. Saw Bryan's band Expressions a few times in the late 80s and they were a very competent melodic hard rock band.

For me, you can add Steve Martin to that list.

Marco Mendoza's solo shows don't seem to get a mention here. With the band back in the UK for the second time this year maybe some aren't even aware that the tour is taking place this week. 1 May London, O2 Academy 2 2 May Evesham, The Iron Road 4 May Sutton-in-Ashfield, The Diamond 5 May Keighley, West Yorkshire, The Exchange Music & Arts 6 May Inverness, Mad Hatters 7 May Edinburgh,

I'll have a piece of that. I haven't seen Y&T for a while but that news has just convinced me that it's time.

I like the understated nature of it but was expecting it to build to a ripping Brion solo so it feels like a missed opportunity.

You are rightfully protective of people who, in extreme circumstances, may be the victims of criminal activity. However; I would never advocate persecuting an entire group for the criminal activities of a small individuals. In North Carolina is the prevalence of such criminal activity higher in the transgender community than it is from other females ? If not their rights should surely be the s

Perhaps battles require different strategies in different countries and at different times. It's not as if the US is an oppressive country that requires engagement with more liberal western culture ..... although from the outside it is unsettling to see what kind of backwards steps it may take over the next 5 years.

Calling somebody a bigot is certainly an emotive term but I think that the word bigoted should be used to describe the action of making negative and largely irrational assumptions about people based on their personal characteristics.

Big name acts using their profile to highlight recently implemented regressive policies is a noble gesture. Many people are not fully engaged with policies that don't immediately affect them, so I think encouraging people to think is a good thing. The impact it has on fans and workers is short lived. Bad legislation gets embedded if it isn't challenged quickly.

Punky's vocalist is Chandler Mogel not Danny Anniello. That first track was very promising though.

Wasn't it Steve MacDonald from Redd Kross that said he should write all Cheap Trick's songs to bring them back in line after the Lap / Busted era ? Now Julian Raymond is doing the job. I liked the Dear Mr President album at the time but it sounds limp and a whiney in retrospect. Other than Blood Red Lips I'm not really feeling the album yet but that's probably because I bought Weezer's white alb

Saw Back to Verona a couple of times last year and really enjoyed them - Anthemic well structured songs with more depth than this single suggests.

Last year the first announcement was made on 14th February & the full line up wasn't announced until 20th June - I know that this impacted ticket sales but I'm confident that this will be a great weekend away with some never seen before acts even though it must be increasingly difficult to assemble a decent bill.

Hoping for a new EZN album ? Very few of their releases ever featured brand new material. Can Chip write EZN songs ?

But Joey lives in Brighton doesn't he ? So presumably he'd be deported alongside Michael Schenker etc.

How local is local ? We're spoilt where I live. If they were playing within an hour's drive of me there'd be several on the list I'd like to see: Shawn Colvin & Steve Earle Buddy Guy Tower of Power Morris Day & the Time The Jayhawks But I've never seen any of the acts on your list so I can't really recommend any ...... and I am less fussy than some here too.

Positives: Sound is good and it's got an intimate feel. Negatives: because of the strange shape, low stage & low ceiling there are areas where the views aren't great.

Give me that over Steel Panther any day ..... who are fans of the genre, but just as cynical. I don't think it's designed for longevity but as a flash in the pan novelty I am entertained by this more than I am by some "genuine" bands.

Picked up the album this morning & was playing it in the car on the way home, thinking where do I know this song from ? (Sahara was always my least favourite House of Lords album). First listen & so far it doesn't grab me the way The Latest did, but it's only a matter of time, I'm sure, because Special One is the only Trick album that I never listen to.

Hot Chocolate + (I think) Mike Harding - Halifax Civic Theatre - November 1979. Although I did see Animal Kwackers a month earlier & they played a handful of full-on-glam-stompathong songs as part of their show. First rock show - Twisted Sister + Infidel - Bradford St. George's Hall - April 1983.

These days I only buy T shirts from the point of view of supporting smaller bands especially if the ticket price was cheap or the attendance is poor, and I'm more likely to buy one as part of a discounted package - so, buy 3 CDs and get a T shirt thrown in for a tenner. Personally, I'd rather pick up something I can frame & hang on the office wall to commemorate my attendance. I know that

I have to applaud the person behind the Captain Can Man character. Other than Andy Kaufman I don't think there's anybody that has portrayed themselves as such an annoying buffoon so well for so long.

It would remind you of the old days - it was recorded in 1993.

It's looked like there's been some movement behind the scenes over the last 12 months. Having said that it'll obviously be Felix not Mickie.

Aren't Kansas on 14 too ? Loved the last ZZ Top (their 15th). Cheap Trick's The Latest was excellent (16th) Kiss' Monster didn't really grab me (their 20th) but Sonic Boom I really liked.
