The best would be Twisted Sister probably but I've seen plenty of great support bands: Cheap Trick (opening for Motley Crue) - Sheffield 1986 White Sister (FM) - Halifax 1987 Kingdom Come (Magnum) - Bradford 1988 Saraya (FM) - Bradford 1989 Romeo's Daughter (FM) - Bradford 1989 The Front (Lenny Kravitz) - Leeds 1990 Primus (Jane's Addiction) - Leeds 1991 Naked Truth (D-A-D) - Bradford 1

I only regret the ones that I thought about & decided against: James Brown - at V99 I was watching the Manics on the main stage whilst James Brown played in a tent. Saga - when they played the show for Classic Rock Society - what was I thinking ? Aerosmith - never got round to it despite them being one of my favourite bands up until Permanent Vacation. Since Pump I couldn't be arsed

They've been that expensive for years .... and people keep going ..... and finding it worth paying. I consider myself a big fan but it's not for me. By the way, Paul's custom stage played guitars on the European tour are $10,500 each.

I immediately thought of Billy Joe's sometime "mock-ney" accent on some Green Day songs, where he tries to give himself some false punk rock authenticity by snarling out in a faux London accent. Swedes & Danes tend to do a good job and I like the clipped expressions of some German singers too. Japanese singers seem to find it difficult. That's why the ones that crossed over like

Gregg seemed quite receptive to the possibility of doing something when asked at that award ceremony last year. Both he and Felix suggested they would be prepared to bankroll a mini reunion if it could be worked out for all. Barry came across as the one that seemed least capable of taking part.

So the singer's permanently gone ? I did find him a bit cheesy but it's difficult to tell from this whether they'll be able to make it work as a 3 piece.

Good looking video, good production, largely forgettable song, but what's with Daiker smoking - so unnecessary that it comes across as a childishly contrived statement.

Maybe it's down to advertising, night of the week and regional taste differences but in Bradford that tour must have pulled close to a thousand people. I remember it was a rare occasion at Queens Hall where I had to watch from upstairs 'cos downstairs was full. The only other shows where that happened at that venue were Extreme, Danzig & Pearl Jam.

Some of the most poorly attended shows I've seen have been Scandinavian bands touring the UK. Osukaru & Vanity BLVD toured the UK together last year - at Wakefield there were 5 of us in attendance. Of those 5, 2 left after the first band and I left after the fifth song of the headliner's set. Fatal Smile in Bradford a couple of years ago, did the full production with flame throwers etc.

In some ways Carnival of Souls is one of the "best" albums, ..... better lyrics, great playing, more complex time signatures etc. but it's definitely not a favourite. I'd go with: Dressed to Kill Hotter than Hell The Elder Creatures Rock and Roll Over as my favourites Least favourites: Crazy Nights Revenge Hot in the Shade Monster Asylum Solo albums (in order): Paul

I'd had enough of "melodic rock" in 1987/88 and missed out on a lot of the bands that are well liked here, but I quite like this. It has more depth than the stuff that turned me off back then.

1200 according to The Level But that seems like a stretch with the size of stage, board, merch area they had last year.

Like others I need the day splits given the proximity of other festivals & shows. I'm guessing that capacity is around 500 in that room so what're the chances of a venue change if the demand is high ? I'm in no rush to see Vince Neil but I would imagine that he could do good business at Rock City on his own.

Obviously this election is the most divisive in memorable history so I don't think it's the smartest move as they're bound to alienate a percentage of their potential audience, no matter how small. Judging by the way Trump conducts himself I would think that percentage is more likely to grow rather than diminish.

Must see before they're done. Wasn't their last UK show for the Classic Rock Society ? Those shows are not well advertised to the general public and presumably promoters don't think there's an audience.

One of the support bands brought in a coach load who left before the headliners came on. Jeff LaBar kept cracking up at the total lack of reaction from the crowd.

I just picked the album up ...... & then put it back in the rack. Chip and his new Yoko continue to exploit Vie's back catalogue; Donnie & his music videos (with his nephew ?) & his bitter sleights; Monaco ranting to himself regarding his disenchantment with life and hatred of humanity; another drummer sacked without explanation; Tory back again, probably paying for the privilege.
