Chart positions may not mean a lot these days to the average person, but they still mean a lot within the industry. A top 10 album can open lots of doors that would have otherwise remained close, a top 5 even more. Sales figures may not be what they once were, but a top 5 in the worldwide album chart is a huge feat, which not many of their peers could ever achieve in 2017! Well done DP!

Interesting, didn't realise their following was still so strong there. They haden't made the top 10 here in the UK since the late 80s until this album...

"Due to Easter holidays, the current charts will only be released on April 18, 2017. Until then, only the midweek charts are available." So the final position will not be announced until tomorrow...but still a great achievement. The album certainly seems to be performing better than the last few...

People always point to Amsterdam when trying to be negative about that album yet ignore Don't Tell Me, Seventh Seal, Feelin'...definitely a progression for VH, darker, full of emotion. And to me Not Enough is probably the best ballad they ever did...Love Balance and F.U.C.K equally, 5150 a little less and OU812 I can live without most of it. The first VH record is still their best though...the

It sounds very dated now and as others have said it is badly in need of a remaster, but with the exception of Inside, I still love it!

Robert Johnson's Tombstone is available from the official Thunder shop. These are literally the last few copies though. It was deleted, but we found a box of them at Thunder towers recently.... http://www.thunderonline-shop.com/robert-johnson-s-tombstone-c2x22578512

Terry, most of the old B-sides are owned by EMI and the band have no control over what they do with them... Nik, they were reissued a few years ago on STC records (the bands own label) but they are out of print now too. To be honest demand for those albums was no where near as high as Thunder stuff, so a re-issue of those is unlikely..

The reissue was done mainly because the CD was out of print and lots of fans were trying to get a copy, more than the fact that it needed a remaster. As you say the original still sounds great!

Yeah a lot of stuff from China is fake, albeit good quality fakes. You can get the box sex of all the Bon Jovi Japanese Special Edition CDs released a few years ago for instance for £45, which would normally be a couple of hundred....

I have many Sammy bootleg Live shows from the 70s up til present day, and I've never once heard the kind of behaviour you are talking about. In fact I may even have the bootleg of that Hammy '80 show on cassette somewhere, I might have to dig it out....saw what you want about Hagar but he's always put on a solid live show...but ho hum...

And that's just the UK shows. James once told me that when they went tour Europe to open for Black Stone Cherry, he was about 30,000 out of pocket. Like he says, there's no way a young band could afford to do that...he's in a very different fortunate to most.

They probably both use the same supplier/distributer, hence the same info.... The only way to get the EP outside of the website it the 4 disc Japanese edition, but that is very expensive on import.

They will be getting the info from whatever distributer they are using to source the imports, who probably did something silly like copy the track listing from the thunder website...

The only place that you can get the 4 track EP is from the Thunder website (as part of the bundles), or on the Japanese edition (Japan was released as a single disc, 3 disc, and 4 disc - only the 4 disc version has the EP)

Exactly. So why would bands from over here waste time trying to crack America where it's much harder for a rock band. You can make good money on a run of decent sized clubs over here. Although it helps you don't really need the mainstream support as much these days thanks to the internet.

Everyone as Geffen treated Kalodner like a god. If it was a band he wanted to push they would be behind him. Backstreet wouldn't have done well if no one at the label did anything. Once the tide turned a lot of the Geffen staff changed and the new breed didn't give a rats ass about classic rock or Kalodner.

Terry, there is a great rock scene here, but it's mainly club / bar level. It's very much underground, very few bands get mainstream attention. Planet Rock has been great for getting new music out there and has a lot of listeners. Bon Jovi, Bryan Adams still get a little, Def Leppard to a lesser extent. Black Star Riders do well at radio as mentioned, but still really only headline in clubs an

Comparing North America sales to UK is ridiculous - you do realise how small the UK is in comparison!? "All bands since the beginning of time have attempted to conquer north America?" Really? In the 80s sure. In the 90s probably. Nowadays? I could name a lot of bands that do great in the UK/Europe/Japan that have never tried to break America, and don't need to. It's simply too expens

B Level bands that sell 30,000 in the UK? Um...yeah right....please name me some.... No I'm talking about the last Def Leppard studio album, it got to no. 11, in fact that haven't had a Top 5 since Slang... It's not released in North America until April. North America is all that matters to you maybe.... Def Leppard was just an example of Thunder's standing in the UK. Of course they can'
