I agree - The owners have chosen a poor spot to open this new venture.It isn't the worst I've been in but I was wondering how it was allowed to exist as a nightclub for so many years. Presumably at the time of planning the H.E.A.T. tour the Leeds show was scheduled for the Cockpit. Futuresounds Promotions closed the Cockpit on 10 September at very short notice after surveys showed that it woul

Kiss began using the Schaffer-Vega system in February 1977 allegedly in response to Ace Frehley's onstage electrocution in December 1976. It has been claimed that Kiss were the first touring band to use them.

It sounds like the UK shows might finally happen too.

Manchester would be great for me too Andy. There were certainly a lot from your side of the Pennines at the show in London last year. I know that some of the HRH acts have also tied in a show at the Corporation in Sheffield in the past.

I spoke with Richie Ranno last week and at that time he didn't yet know which day Starz was playing.

Gene tweeted and then withdrew so must have jumped the gun on the announcement but it does seem likely given that they are headlining other European festivals in May and June. However, on Monday Kiss' licensing company also mentioned European shows with Def Leppard.

I've been looking forward to this but the clips suggest that a lot of the tracks sound very similar to the originals and a lot of the performers' personalities seem to have been diluted as a consequence.

From what I remember it was only available free to download. Don't think there was an official CD release. Some of my favourite Kiss covers on this.

I'm usually disappointed by covers live. It's often a cliche and a cop out, especially in an already short set. It also shows a lack of confidence in a band's own material .... but Patricia absolutely owns on this. A nice reminder of why Nexx were my favourite band at Firefest III.

I took my son to see 30STM a few years ago. It was very good but I couldn't use the word 'fun' - boy Jared was on some bizarre messianic trip that night. I know who I'd rather listen to Dennis.

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
