Not enough gigs or money for GC to keep going at this time. Too bad because he plays really well with Jake. Jake has Ultimate Sin publishing to keep him afloat.

There have been at least a few GREAT songs on all of his recent projects (perhaps save the Disney one). I've heard most of this album, and it's got quite a few strong tunes again. A miracle that he's still putting out strong and relevant material with his collaborators.

I'm interested in what the two guitar players will do with the material. That offers a promise of something new, and both guys are great players who are good at arrangements. That aspect could be interesting.

Bobby in his prime is my favorite Toto singer, and he's really the ONLY guy they've had who can do justice to real R&B-sounding songs like "You Are the Flower," "Mama," and "Waiting For Your Love." That makes the current state of things a bitter pill to swallow, but let's be realistic: 1) He can't really sound like he did anymore so it's a moot point, and

I remember seeing this article about Bobby all the way back in 1989 or 1990. I recognize that he has a right to go out an earn a living, but these issues of misrepresentation seem to be chronic. http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=QUNWAAAAIBAJ&sjid=meoDAAAAIBAJ&dq=bobby%20kimball%20rented%20gear%20toto&pg=6611%2C7131504 I brought this up 2-3 years ago as was more or less shoute

You can't really have Autograph without Steve Plunkett, can you?

Depends on which keyboard sounds used and whether or not they are doubling up guitar riffs or riding up o on top. I like both, but to add power, they need to basically double the guitar riffs (or be Hammond organ).

Exactly what he was doing back in 1990-1991. Would it be that hard to write "Original Member Of" above the Toto logo?

I like it, particularly the single coil sound that George uses, which is a little different than I've heard him do recently. Guitar parts are great, and Sweet has a strong, clear voice. But to me, he always sounds histrionic, like he's over-emoting. I think KXM and the recent Lynch Mob albums were both a bit better. Sweet Lynch is a worthy addition to his catalogue, though.

It's really too bad. Bobby Kimball was a remarkable singer in his prime, and I think he had better tone and a more soulful voice than did Joseph Williams. But Mindfields was the very end of that. You could hear some strain on Bobby's voice there, and it was only more evident with each subsequent release (and was really obvious on the live stuff). I also think that with Paich not being as prol

Not sure why a group is automatically better than a project. It's music. It's either good or it's not. Who wrote it isn't really all that big a deal.

It doesn't sound good at all (from DC). The vocals are nearly unlistenable. I'll probably give it a try because I'm interested in what Joel and Reb might add to the material. This would have been a great "filler" project for DC just after Coverdale Page, when he could still sing a little.

Within one more generation, rock will be like big band music was in the 70s and 80s. It's primary audience will be aged 50-80, and there will be only a few younger people who discover and like it as "oldies" music. The Beatles will remain popular as perhaps its best example. Rock and rock instruments will be increasingly taught in music education, and forms of it will endure in popul

He's GOT to stop trying to sing higher than the original part was. He still sounds very good in his normal range, and people want him to sing most of the songs there.

This one is more like a Luke solo track but with a big Toto chorus. Guitar sound is really nice, and the drums lay back and give it a groove without taking over too much. It's fun with Steve Porcaro's keyboard stabs come in.

They didn't get a good drum sound on Agent Provocateur, but I think the songs are better than the tepid AOR-by-numbers of Inside Information. Stuff like Tooth and Nail and That Was Yesterday lifts AP a little higher.

I loved every minute of the interview, but it does beg the question: since returning to sobriety, what's happened to him as a writer? Business conditions? Lack of will? I'd just like to hear new music from him (either with or without the Van Halen band) on a bit more regular basis.

Nothing remotely "sad" about Bluegrass, which is often superior to rock music. Certainly the musicianship is almost always better.
