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...

Finally read the Billboard interview, and it was a terrible read. EVH basically bags Michael Anthony in order to build Wolfgang up, and that's just plain wrong. No wonder Sammy was so pissed, and who could blame him?

Jani Lane was definitely an underrated singer and songwriter. Dog Eat Dog and Ultraphobic were two of my favorite records from the Lani years, but there was a lot on Cherry Pie that was good, too (just not the singles so much). A lot of talent that was wasted during the years he battled with substance abuse and then tragically cut short with his death.

It's good to see DeGarmo doing something creative again. Kind of sad that he won't talk about the QR days, even if it was just wishing the guys (Scott, Eddie, Michael, & Co.) well in their endeavors. I guess when he moved on from the band, he really moved on in all aspects.

It's a very good read, and I'd recommend it to any fan of Stryper. It does refer to Sweet's Christian faith - how could it not given who the band is? - but it doesn't overwhelm the story, and anyone should enjoy it, regardless of their faith orientation. For me, it felt well written, and while there are some stories/situations that were obviously left out, it was a pretty complete account tha

As a fan, it's nonsensical. It just seems like ego and scraping the bottom of the barrel for extra money. Plus, the last solo album was boring - glad I listened to it on Spotify and saved the money.

Thumbs up for any progress on that front; I hope further conversations/communications continue to be fruitful for you both.

It is just human nature. It's also the Internet; there's just a lot of negativity out there, and it's easy to fall into that. I try to stay positive as much as possible, but I fall into the that trap sometimes. I never talk about TEN because I haven't listened to their albums. I might someday.

I read the full interview, and to a certain extent, I better understand the situation that DC was in. I"m still a fan of some of Coverdale's responses, but the interviewer was definitely a total twat and some of the DC's comments were taken out of context of the original interview in that Blabbermouth snippet. Any artist would have gotten pissed at those questions, and I'm a little surpris

There's a saying (maybe I'm making it up, but I think it's good) that whatever a man says with his mouth is what's in his soul. DC normally comes off okay in interviews, but this time, he really does sound like a total jerk, and it's hard not to think that he's more that way than he lets on. He could have said essentially the same thing without sinking to the level he did.

An arrogant statement to the hilt, for sure, but okay...DC's rich, successful, and has had a wonderful life. Good for him. Only thing that gets me is the popular slang word, "hater." It's Way overused, and seems to be the fallback argument of any celebrity or famous person over any hint of criticism. I'm NOT jealous of DC's success, but it doesn't necessarily mean that I'll like the

Probably the best proposition that I've seen in this war of words. It all seems a little silly to those of us on the sidelines, and I hope a solution can be found that's acceptable to both parties.

Like I had said before, this is disappointing to hear, and it makes me mad at Frontiers. Where in the world do they think they'd be today if they didn't have web advertising? It wouldn't have been because of print media; that's gone. It makes me not want to buy Frontiers releases anymore, but that'd mean I'd have to forego Stryper's next album...sigh.

Glad to hear the facts. I does disturb me a bit to hear Christian artists/speakers make claims about having a more illustrious past than they really do, and a lot have gotten exposed for it. Wake up!

Did a couple of pre-orders that were band fundraisers (not Pledge, but some other companies). One took eight months, and the other was nearly a year because of recording delays. I didn't care, though; the music was worth it!

Was just thinking the same thing. I'm now going back to my classical music and "mel metal," with all that melody. :)

That really is too bad. I'll keep most of my thoughts to myself, but my impression is that Andrew has bent over backwards in his work with Frontiers, and the label (and the melodic rock genre) has benefited from it as well as MR. Wish nothing but the best for everyone, but it's sad to see the partnership dissolve like that.

They released a couple - I remember the Megadeth one being out on DVD at some point. I enjoyed a couple of them over the years, especially Journey.

Agree about the tone of the question...I'll honestly admit that there are times when I wonder when reviews are going to get back on regular track, but the website isn't real life. Real life has issues, and Andrew's been very transparent with the reasons for any holdups. So, I wish him well with everything, and I'll look forward to whatever's in store.

I thought there were some good points in the article, actually. As teens, we just listened to what was popular at the time, stuff that was played to death on radio and MTV. I think where folks on the board are anomalies is that we still buy new albums; however, a lot of us do buy within the musical style that we liked as youngsters. But at least we're still purchasing; that's more than what mo

I second that - if Bret wants to do his own thing, fine. I'd rather see a group of people play for the joy of it rather than just for commercial gain, which is what "reunion tours" are all about.

They're been doing stuff like this for years. Most recently, they hiked fees for selling stuff privately and banned everyone other than professional sellers from listing DVD's. Makes me wonder if it's really worth the bother to sell anything.

Looks very interesting, and I might spring the money for it. I'm always interesting in hearing some of the bands that "should have made it" in the 80's, but never did.
