Considering In Faith dissolved a year ago, it's not a very well informed list, and putting the likes of Damn Yankees on there is just plain stupid - what happens when they come out as the #1 vote??

Of COURSE I realise this is the original Dio guys. It was Dio that got me into rock (via Rainbow Rising wayyy back) and I LOVED those first 4 Dio albums. But latter day Dio bored me rigid .. mainly plod, plod, plod (Killing The Dragon had some cool tunes though). As mentioned elsewhere, there were lots of fast-paced songs on these albums ... don't hear anything like that on this LIL album. My

I presume you have also got WET and Toby Hitchcock (and Nordic Union?)? All written by Eclipse main guy Erik Martenssen and all brilliant.

Yes, and I totally appreciate that for the FANS it's all about the music. But for those people actually putting on a festival, it's also about the logistics, the financial aspects such as paying bands, flights costs, hotel costs, equipment hire, ground transport costs and many other things that just add up. Selecting bands that have a drawing power, or pulling a rabbit out of the hat. As said a

I presume you have the Millenium - Hourglass album? IMHO that is Jorn at his VERY best.

Mick, you seem to be under the impression that just because Rockingham was a virtual carbon-copy of Firefest, then everyone who went to Firefest should have gone along to Rockingham. From my perspective, there were several reasons why Rockingham didn't get the same numbers through the doors as Firefest, and several of those were of their own making. But first, remember when Firefest first sta

The songs on Magnum II are amongst my very favourites from the band, but I prefer the live versions on Marauder and the double single. 2 of the best I've never heard live: Firebird and Stayin' Alive.

Pick up the live 'Marauder' album ... songs like 'Reborn' and 'Invasion' are NOT light. Sounds Music paper famously described them at that period as "skull-crushing heavy metal' ....LMAO!! :)

NOWHERE near their best album yet. A step BACKWARD from 'Shadow Garden' IMHO, which was a small step in the right direction. Now we're BACK to the same, slow plodding tempo of the previous albums. Seems many people love these post-reformation albums ... but to me it's virtually been the same album every time, and that album is NOT one that does it for me. If you want some context, Magnum were

>>I'll ask them for a brief story explaining their situation and then you and Andrew can choose who you think deserves it most. Hmmmmm... maybe it's just me, but the thought of deciding which heart-break story is more worthy than the next I find quite off-putting. I would think any such procedure should pick a winner totally at random from those interested in taking part ...

No, unfortunately - was a fault on my camcorder that weekend. The full set had audio professionally recorded, but nothing was ever done with it.

It was actually written with the intention Meat Loaf sang it ... but his management didn't even let him hear it (see Tobias interview in new Fireworks, out next week)

I'd certainly argue for Early Magnum (up to Wings of Heaven). The music and lyrics were more intelligent while still being melodic and catchy. I love both Leppard and Europe ... I'd classify them in the same group. Saxon much more NWOBHM.

So one would think ... until you see their contractual terms. They are tied into Tickmaster. 50% of ticket sales MUST go through Ticketmaster .. and you don't get paid on those sales till AFTER the show. I mean seriously ... WTF???!!

£10 is bloody outrageous. Rainbow was £5, but I put up with that to see Mr Blackmore rock out one more time (hopefully it WON'T be one more time, but you never know).

Yeah, totally agree. Is always the big corporations screwing the little guy. We didn't even want to sell the Ten CDs to Amazon, but the distributor sold them to Amazon, who then sold at crazy low prices under-cutting our OWN website by £££s. Good for the fans, but not for record companies wanting to fund new music, and shops like yourself. Is the same with Ticketmaster and concerts - alth

Amazon is really the bane of the independent record company. They insist on set prices from distributor then undercut everyone else by £££s. Sure, for the customer it is great to get CDs so cheap. For the record company, not so much ... (more so the small indies)

Yes, I saw them in Glasgow, probably around 86/87, and they opened and closed with 'The Final Countdown'. All the screaming girlies seemed to enjoy it!! :D
