It just means nothing is ever really set in stone; artists change their minds all the time. That said, I think it'd be a good thing for Journey to take some time off - they might actually get recharged enough to create new music instead of doing the "summer shed tour" thing over and over again.

They have certainly hyped this film, but I'm looking forward to it. Especially interested in seeing how they treat Spider-Man as a character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

I just listened to the new album, and it's fantastic. Some of the best AOR that I've heard so far this year; it's on the top of my list of to-gets.

Prince's music was never my cup of tea, but he was still one of the inventive musicians of his generations. A very unexpected and tragic loss.

http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/black-country-communion-to-return-in-2017/ Of course, it's Blabbermouth, so I often take most of what they say with a grain of salt. But this looks legit, so I guess it's exciting news for BCC/Hughes fans.

I liked the songs that I heard - I know the singer sounds like he's got his testicles caught in a vice, but that was the type of "singing" most hard rock vocalists tried to do in the late 80's/early 90's, and I was used to hearing that. It didn't prevent me from enjoying the songs, though, so I guess I would have rated the album a little higher. But just my 2 cents, of course.

For me, it depends on what type of digipak the album is housed in. There are very fancy digipak sets that are nice and don't wear as easily. However, I've bought a number of albums on indie album that use them as cost-saving measures, and they're flimsy as anything. Most of the time, those versions don't even have room for liner notes, which takes the fun out of buying a CD.

Back in the day, I had to buy most of the music I listened to on cassette. But I have to confess that I hated it even then; cassettes were annoying to deal with. They wore out quickly and there were always problems with the players "eating" the tape. I know the technology has improved a little bit, but it's really impossible for me to see cassettes as being more than a nostalgia thin

The backup singer sings the song just fine. But I have to agree that most of the band just looks bored on stage. The only ones that look halfway engaged are "Singer X," Arnel, and Schon. Smith doesn't seem terribly excited to be up there, and it's the first time he's played with them in years! The question is: why bother? If they're that bored, why don't they change up the set list

Yeah, it's a business, but I think Angus & Co. could have handled the situation better. Of course, fans will never know the full story because the Youngs want everything kept in-house. Sure, it's hard to find a vocalist that fits their style, but there are enough known names that the band could have gotten 2-3 to fill out a set list and finish the tour dates. Most long-time fans would ha

Best Buy sells some of the Frontiers releases in stores- it's almost always the bigger name artists. Others, you have to special order, and if that's the case, I'd get it through Walmart.com as a "ship to store because it's a little less expensive.

I liked a couple of the songs that I heard, but never got around to getting the album. So I guess if I invested money in it, I'd get the deluxe reissue. But it does seem to pay to wait a while before buying an album, as this whole business of reissuing "special editions" of an album has become a common tactic for established artists.

The track list doesn't excite me much, but Jorn's a great vocal talent. It's worth a listen on Spotify, if nothing else.

I've had two experiences with Pledge and Kickstarter, and both were fine, though one of the albums got delayed by nearly a year. In general, I think the concept of bands raising funds to make an album is a great one, but for established artists, they've morphed them into more of an additional preorder conduit, often charging higher prices than standard retail with substandard perks. So, I'm a b

Not certain of that, either. Why put quotation marks about how the site "inspired" you? It sounds like you're dissatisfied with something or another. But regardless, I wish nothing but the best of luck for your new site, and I'll check it out when it's active.

We've had a lot of bad gigs in my home town, but they all involved local bands. The worst gigs by "name" bands were the two Dokken shows I went to. The first one was in my home town, and DD was an absolute diva - he threatened not to show up, then finally did and almost got into a fist fight with a fan who asked for an autograph. Good thing my brother didn't approach him (he wanted t

I don't mind the comic book films as long as they're decent. I was basically a comic book nut as a kid and longed to see characters like Spider Man on the big screen. My favorite films fulfill that fantasy, and probably the fantasies of others from our generation that read comics. I'm sure that's why they're so popular. Some Favorites include the first two Spider Man films (Raimi/Maguire),

The script is based off the conversations that fans have had at the comic stores: "I bet Batman would absolutely whip Superman's butt!" and so on. The problem is, that scenario alone does not necessarily make a good movie. But I plan to see it, regardless of the reviews. Critics didn't like the second Avengers film, either.

I'm afraid QR's output after Promised Land, for me, falls in that category of songs produced by 80's bands after their heyday. I like hearing them, but find them less memorable and don't have a lot of desire to do repeated listening.

If that's all true, the decision to continue touring immediately could backfire a bit. A bunch of no-shows, and the fans that do show up could be chanting Brian's name and booing Angus non-stop.

It's probably not that rare, but the Bad Moon Rising box set is pretty hard to find these days. I've seen people trying to sell it in excess of $100.

Those comments are incredibly dumb, though it's hard to feel that upset by it. I'm sure it looked "cool" to trash Stryper for their look and faith in the 80's, but you'd think people would grow up and get past it. Guess some don't...

I don't usually make comments about U.S. politics, but I'll be glad when the election cycle is over. Inflammatory headlines, the constant debates, the overwhelming negativity, hatred, and fear...it just makes me want to take a cold shower.

Some good news; the Martin years of Sabbath has been largely ignored because of all the hype surrounding the reunion with Ozzy and, to a lesser extent, with Dio. I'll be interested to see what new music comes out on the re-issues.
