Who knows with this business anymore; release dates are all over the place, and the Scorpions is the best example of this. My guess (and it's only my opinion) is that the band waited until they got the best possible deal for a U.S. release, but they decided to go ahead and get it released in other territories where people actually buy albums. I try to feel more sympathetic to the artist, but I'

Appreciate the note - I bought three of the albums from Amazon (the other was out of stock, so that's coming from NEH records) and I saw the digital download links, but I just assumed that they were the original versions. Will take a listen!

MR.com is the main place I check for news/reviews. There's a few others (already mentioned) that I look at every now and then, but this is by far the best.

I'm thinking about investing in the Dokken and Ratt reissues by Rock Candy, and was wondering how they sound. I know Rock Candy has a really good rep in general, but has anyone heard them and, if so, are they worth the coin to replace the older CD's in my collection?

Yeah, I guess I'll empty out that piggy bank now... Ultimate fan collection; maybe worth $5,000 or so to a Steelheart nut, but not to me.

If Elliot's happy with the final product, more power to him. But I'll decide that for myself when I hear it, and the band's recent output has been spotty enough that I don't feel erribly optimistic that this'll be a solid record from start to finish. But we'll see...

I know a lot of people prefer Jack Russell's voice with the GW songs, but I've been a fan of Terry Ilous for a long time; got to hear him sing both with GW and with his band XYZ. ONe of those singers who has the "indestructible" voice - sounded amazing.

Glad that the feud is over between those two, if the report is accurate, but nobody should predict a band reunion at this point. Axl's so unpredictable; who really knows what'll happen?

Depends. YOu can only get the popular books for free from Amazon if you have a full Prime membership subscription. But there are some books on Amazon that's free of charge that are put together by volunteer groups; some of them are okay, some not so much. But there's also websites out there that has classic literature in Kindle format for free. It just depends on what you want, I guess.

I don't listen to the album as much as I did when it was released, but this makes me to drag it out again. I thought it was one of the best comeback albums from a band that I had heard, and there were a lot of strong songs on it. I just hope they come out with another album soon, so I could actually catch them in concert

Great article, thanks for the link. Knew about G'n'R and Def Leppard, but not The Darkness and some of the others. It's crazy what record labels were willing to let artists get away with in terms of recording costs.

It is disappointing that Jones doesn't want to make new music, but sadly, he's not the only one in that boat. A lot of the so-called heritage bands are living off the past glories and the nostaglia that older fans feel about the hits. Simple economics, as it was said. I'd be willing to bet that the other guys would be up for creating some new music, but it's Jones' band and his call, and he do

I have a whole bunch of CD's (over 300) and some DVD's (around 20) for sale, thanks to a big clean-up of possessions that my brother left behind when he moved. The CD's are on Amazon; the DVD's are on Ebay. It's mostly metal, but there's some melodic rock/AOR mixed in there as well. I'm looking to move the stuff, so prices are reasonable. Take a look if you're interested. http://www.amazon

This was about my thought when I heard the track - it wasn't bad, but it seemed like a deliberate attempt to channel the original "Operation: Mindcrime" sound (keyboards and acoustic guitar). Problem was, it doesn't have a memorable melody and the main riff doesn't hook you. So I don't know; I'll probably listen to the album once on Spotify, but unless I hear something different than

I rather liked it myself. I wouldn't rate it on a first listen, but it's a very good album of its genre. Maybe we've just heard too many AOR/melodic rock albums at this point in time?

The song sounds great, but there were a few others from the samples that I liked better. But the album should please a lot of Stryper fans, as it pulls sounds from a lot of their past albums. I'll be in line to get it!

For me, it was Quiet Riot's self-titled album with Paul Shortino. I remember liking a couple of the songs on the album, but then seeing their videos with DuBrow on Headbanger's Ball and thinking, "Is this the same band?" In retrospect, it's easy to see why most QR fans disliked it back then.

Sounds like a Philadelphia show that's been floating for decades. The stage clothes and makeup does look funny, but that was the late 80's for you.

The music industry is in a complete mess, IMO. First, it was illegal downloading; then it's streaming, and now companies are trying the radio model again. As a buyer and consumer, I'm finding it hard to know where things are going. But for now, I'll do what I've been doing for the past few years - buy the physical product to support artists that I like, and sample other products that I'm not q

That may be true, but there wouldn't be any reason for Blotzer to form a new band with these guys. Bet it wouldn't be that hard to create a sound along the lines of RATT.

Have always liked Dysfunctional, I wish Don had done more of these songs in concert. ETS got played to death after I got it, still love Reb Beach's playing on it to this day. Shadowlife was definitely the weakest of the Dokken albums, but I like a couple of the songs on it as long as I don't think of it as a Dokken effort.

A sad situation, and one that will certainly end his gig with Journey and other creative endeavors for the time being. A charge is just a charge, but it's next to impossible to escape public perception of those particular charges.

Given what Tate's produced in his later period with QR and solo, my expectations aren't that high. And what that means is one listen to the album via Spotify, and that's it. Then I hope they enjoy the one and a half cents they'll get from Spotify, or whatever the royalty rate the company bothers to pay to artists for a listen.

Very interesting indeed. I guess almost all artists have gotten to the point where they believe holding their catalog off of Spotify and such services is more of a negative than a positive.

I liked the second song, and there are certain things I liked and disliked about the others. In all, it sounds like a mixed bag, and I wonder why Tate would bother with the expense of it all if that's what it's going to be like.

Great looking art; seems to be along with same line as the covers of the last album and To Hell with the Devil. Looking forward to its release.

I'll believe it when I see it. I also think that any material from Slash that's used now probably dates back to the days when he was in the band, and not part of any official reunion, as that's just a pipe dream by fans. But time will ultimately tell...
