For me, it's Stryper. I like Michae's solo output fine, but I like his work in Stryper better. He may have mixed feelings about it (made evident in his book), but Stryper is what Michael's going to be most remembered for.

http://ultimateclassicrock.com/peter-frampton-throws-cell-phone/ Personally, I do understand the frustration that artists are feeling with people taking pictures and recording against theirs' or the venue's wishes. But I'd have to say that I'm getting discouraged from going to concerts in part because of this - in addition to getting frustrated with people standing up in front of me all the t

I enjoyed this GW release as well; I remember thinking at the time that it was awful laid-back, but the songs have held up well for me. Wooden Jesus was one of my favorites.

Sure, they can be replaced - it was done with Ace and Peter, and other younger guys can be found for the touring and performances. For me, it'd only be KISS if Paul maintained some involvement in the songwriting and other creative aspects of the business. Otherwise, it'd be (as some have argue) so much of a 'tribute band' feel that it'd eventually fail.

We all figured that replacements would be found to continue the band's touring and what not, but of course they'd have to make money in the process. Oh well, no surprise there. On the bright side, Paul might continue with behind-the-scenes work in songwriting and producing new music, so that'd be a plus if it happens. He's much more the heart of KISS than Gene ever was.

Very sorry to read the announcement...I know that it must have been something of a nightmare to deal with, but I'm glad MRF is still going on. I wish I could be there, but I live halfway across the country from Chicago and there was no way I could afford the airfare and hotel costs at this point in time. But I know the bands will be awesome, and I'll be sad to miss it!

Very scary figures...makes you wonder how much longer this can all go on before music labels and artists start refusing to record/release product because they can't recoup costs.

That'd actually be pretty cool to see as a concert-goer, providing that you have the seats to where he'd be right in front of you. As far as knocking them on their songwriting and performance abilities...Crue's always been that way to one extent or another, they were that way when I saw them with Megadeth, so why act like it's going to be any different now? I'd know what to expect if I paid for

For the bands who are recording more professional sounding albums, there isn't any excuse - they've been around long enough that they ought to know what sounds good and what doesn't. But you could name any number of reasons: 1. Cutting corners on costs and technology (which shouldn't be as expensive now) 2. Rushing the product out before doing a proper mix or tweaking it 3. Try to do it

Interesting to see; I'd bet this is just part of the DA's decision to move on. You have to do gigs that pay the bills and puts food on the table, and the combination of projects apart from Whitesnake probably made more financial sense to commit to.

When I bought CD's in the hey day of melodic rock/AOR, it felt like a rip to get an album that barely topped 30 minutes and only had 8-10 songs. Now days, prices have generally dropped to where it doesn't feel quite that way anymore, and I find it harder to listen to 15-16 tracks, mainly because some of them do sound like filler. I think there's various reasons for this, one of which is that

Guess it shows us that streaming is pretty much the way people get their music - it'll be interesting to see what form it starts to take in the next few years. Can't believe that music labels won't raise their prices soon for services to access their catalogue...

Well, that was a nice snide answer - of course he'd make the decision on personnel, who'd assume otherwise? - but I hope DC gets a really good guitarist, he always does.

It's been a good while since DeGarmo's done anything in the music business, and it's hard to imagine someone wanting to jump back into the very unstable lifestyle (physically and financially) of music and touring. But it would certainly be nice to see DeGarmo renew ties with his old band in some form, if that's meaningful for him and the others.

I'm almost ready to agree with this statement. It doesn't make sense to take the time and effort to write songs, record an album, and then start canceling gigs left and right. If Lee didn't want to make a real effort into creating a good band, why bother with it? He could just play at a local club near his home and get the same satisfaction without all the wasted time and money. I hope it i

I hope Kottak does successfully moves on from this, though he'll have to realize that you can't just "beat" alcoholism - you live with it for the rest of your life and have to battle it every day. Wonder if he'll remain with the Scorpions after this - they sounded like they've kind of moved on themselves.

The Adam Levine bit wasn't nearly as bad as the Lady Gaga "impersonation." Just hope the money's good for him.

Love the band's music, especially the 70's output. I haven't warmed up to a lot of their songs after Pump, though - not sure why, maybe a few too many ballads. Probably ought to listen to their whole discography to see about that... :)

Psh - I guess the obvious question is, why now? There's certainly been plenty of reissues of the song over the years, so why bother with a lawsuit now? I say, no chance.

Good question, but we won't know that answer until when/if an album comes out. I'd like to think the unit would do their best regardless of their "issues" to release something that honors the RATT legacy.

It ultimately remains to be seen if another RATT album makes the light of day. I know Pearcy has said that he'll do another album, but the tone of recent news suggests that it's all 'legalese' that's being spoken by all parties and there are no plans when/if such recording takes place. If it does happen, I'll be more than happy to listen to the results.

Read most of it the last two days (Kindle version) - I enjoyed it and found Michael to be an interesting guy. I did wonder, and I don't think I'm revealing anything, about his carping on about certain matters that pertains to band business and his/their roles; I wonder what they thought of it when they read it themselves? I'd have to admit that working with Sweet sounds a bit trying, but he's a

With all the stuff that's been flying around the Internet and social media, that lot really does deserve one another. Never seen a bunch of yokos hate each other so much that they'd give up a financial opportunity like a Ratt reunion.

That's going to be Coverdale's loss - Aldrich is a fantastic guitarist; I've followed him since the Lion days and he'll do great regardless of where he lands.

Off the subject a bit, but I remember being at one recent gig where the vocalist asked the audience to hold up their cell phones, said something about "let's get them up just like the lighters we used to have," and you could see a sea of purple cell phone lights go up. Hate to say it, but it just wasn't the same.

After all of that, I'm glad to see that the good guys do win the end sometimes. More power to the Queensryche guys; I'll look forward to what they come up with next.

I like the song itself okay, sound Def Leppard-ish in a few places. Not always sure about the vocals, Keith sounds a little strained in some places. But have to agree, it's better than a lot of stuff that's out there, so it's high on my summer listening list.
