That was one of the first things that popped up when I googled the name. Don't know that I would have ever thought of submitting a complaint like that about a CD order.

And on top of it, you pay $85.00 for standard shipping. If you're going to pay at least $17,500 for it, you'd think they'd be willing to do expedited shipping or <gasp> insurance! If that was Elvis Presley's guitar, maybe I'd pony up the money. But Alex John Such's guitar? Um....no.

It's the worst of human nature on full display; everyone gets dirty and no one wins (except maybe the publishing/royalities). Never ceases to amaze me.

All of this is to say that the commercial music business is one of the most worm-infestated creatures on this planet.

Have only listened to it a few times, but I like it. It always sounds like the record that Slip of the Tongue should have been like, but wasn't.

Well, that line of thinking isn't surprising, but it's a little disappointing. Not sure that's financially feasible, except maybe that you record 10-12 songs, then release them one by one to get maximum promotion and then eventually group them into an "album." I'm just old-school in my thinking; give me an album any day.

Ah, very good. I was going by comments from Cain that they weren't likely to do another album, but that was over a year ago. As for Firehouse, that's great to hear; I had heard chatter for a while, but nothing had seemed to come from it. I guess it'll eventually happen.

Red Dragon Cartel was a disappointment. You'd think after so many years that Jake E. Lee would have come up with something more interesting. But that's been about it; I mainly listen to stuff that I'm excited about beforehand, and I haven't been disappointed yet in that regard.

This is a bit 70's and 80's-centric, but: Van Halen Dokken (I don't think Don has anything left in the tank) Firehouse KISS (at least with any original members) Journey There's a bunch of others that are too easy to say - RATT, for example.

Have to agree with you; I got bored looking at the video, so I just cut the volume up and went about my business while listening to the song. Great song, though.

Interesting article, since i didn't read it the last time. However, that video....I wonder how it cost them thousands of dollars to produce? Sure didn't look all that expensive.

HA! I'd like to see Ace try and play Dave's riffs, much less the solos. Clunk.

My guess is new blood; other than Ellefson, no one who's ever worked with Mustaine in the past ever comes back. And that's probably okay; for myself, I love Rust in Peace and Countdown to Extinction, but I don't have a burning desire to set the Friedman/Menza combination again.

No, you're not. I think live albums served artists well from the 60's through the early 80's, but VHS and DVD changed all of that. These days, I'll buy a CD/DVD combo, but not a live CD by itself unless it's for an artist that I want to support.

My 2 cents: I've enjoyed the new reviews that I've read and they helped turned me to some albums that I wouldn't have otherwise thought of, including the new Ten album. I hope there's some more in the pipeline for this week; thanks for your hard work, Andrew!

Sykes was good, and he certainly put his stamp on the current WS sound. But Aldrich's a monster guitarist; anything that he does is a million bucks, IMO. Coverdale should rightfully miss him. I'm not excited about this new release, as there's been too way many live releases from WS/Coverdale in the last few years.

Not really a bomshell, though it's written like it's supposed to be. IPO's are pretty common these days, and most folks would know it as a cash-in thanks to the publicity that Facebook received when it went public. Yeah, it shows how bad things are in the music industry and how everyone is preparing to flee a sinking ship with their "golden parachute," but I bet that's not a surpris

A good interview - I was a little surprised that Angus talked about Malcolm's condition as much as he did. Guess that was inevitable when the cat was let out of the bag. I hope the new album does okay for them.

An interesting article; I had always wondered what the reasoning was for Tuesdays to be the release day for new products. The actual day of release doesn't really matter to me, but I think record executives are concerned, and rightly so, about any potential sales geting sucked in by illegal downloading before the product is actually available. However, I'll admit it seems weird that, for exampl

When I read this, my first thought was: Why? Is Dokken even a functioning entity anymore? There hasn't been any gigs recently other than a few solo acoustic dates. I was also disappointed to read Don's comments on McNabb; it made no sense to say you "love him to pieces" and then trash him in the same breath. I've come to expect that sort of nonsense from Don, unfortunately.

It is disappointing, but not that surprising. Most artists like Hagar that's experienced a certain level of success feel that way now. To them, not selling a million or more units is a letdown, and the creative urge doesn't outweigh the cost anymore. It's sad, but that's the state of the music industry.

Looking forward to the release, but live tracks don't usually cut it for me anymore, so just the single disc version for me.

The seller has the option of sending you a combined invoice for all 5 items, with one shipping cost. If the seller looks like they're new to the scene, just send them a message asking for a combined invoice.

Sounded like a decent two days of good melodic rock. If it had happened on the East Coast (Washington D.C.), I would have probably gone. As it was, it was simply too much for me to consider flying out all the way to Chicago at this time. Even more so when the event was cut down to 2 days and a bunch of bands started dropping out. All of what was described sounded like Andrew was just having

I'll tell you what, if it only takes $1,000 to prevent a band from touring a country, I'll go pick a name out of the hat and then keep them out of the U.S., straight from my bank account. Silly stuff.

Very sad development. No wonder the band made an agreement not to talk about it publicly; it's painful enough for families to have to go through that. All the best of Malcolm, his family, and band mates.

The band is contractually obligated to deliver one more album to their label, but it's anyone's guess as to when, or if, that will happen. Personally, I think the band's done as a creative unit; we might see Blotzer and DeMartini roll out on tour with a different singer, but I don't see them sustaining interest without Pearcy, and that bridge seems burnt.

You think this is sad, you ought to see Black Friday in the U.S. People go running to Walmart at midnight to get in fistfights over the gadgets they decided to put on sale "in very limited quantities." Never done it myself, don't intend to start now.
