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'

It isn't 1988 anymore....hell, it isn't even 1998 I wonder what sales figures would be in you included all the illegal downloads as well..... Any band can only compare and compete with the rest of the market.... It's worth noting also, that this was achieved without any mainstream exposure. Black Star Riders have every song they release playlisted by radio 2 but only managed no. 6 (Thund

Also of note that it was No. 8 in International Albums Chart in Japan and 24 in Germany (the bands highest album chart position to date there!). Wonder Days did around 8500 in the first week in the UK, so it's quite a jump. Team Thunder are happy to say the least...

I love how you know EVERYTHING Hot Sauce. You are truly amazing! If a classic sounding Thunder album was what everyone wanted wouldn't Shooting At The Sun have sold by the truck load. It didn't by the way.... Have a great weekend everyone!

As I've said from the beginning I have no problem with negative feedback, not everyone is going to like everything every time, that's life. I do have a problem with people that think that their opinion is more valid than anyone elses....

I honestly don't care enough to read through this whole thread and find the quote. The edit function here means that it could have been changed in the meantime anyways. Let's just agree to disagree. I think it sounds like Thunder, you don't. To me songs like Wonder Days, I Love The Weekend, The Prophet,When The Music Played, Chasing Shadows, Rip It Up, Shakedown, Tumbling Down, etc all absolut

If you read my comments, I wasn't giving opinion, I was just giving facts, that are not debatable. I never said I want Thunder to sound like this or that, i never said what my opinions were on any of the albums were. I just presented the facts as they are. therefore everything I said is 100% valid. I made no reference to whether I want them to sound like Backstreet or Rip It Up so your above comm

I'm not hiding the fact i work for Thunder, a lot of people here already know that and a click on any of the links in my sig on the board will tell you as much... I have no interest in arguing with someone who fails to see other people's point of view, though. All I was doing was giving you some facts to disprove your "Thunder are done" quote. The last few Deep Purple albums have

I was talking about the overall sales of the whole album from release day to now. I don't have the exact figures to hand, and wouldn't release them if I had as it's not my place to do so, but I do know that none of the albums released between 2002 and 2008 (Shooting at the Sun to Bang) sold anywhere near as many copies as Wonder Days. There is no arguing it, that is just a solid fact. You're l

Saying that the band is "done" is laughable. The band are selling more copies than they have for years (Wonder Days was a top 10 album, and their biggest selling since the 90s, the new one looks set to be another top 10), they have also played the biggest headline shows of their career since Wonder Days came out, and most of the tour in March is sold out. So the band is far from done

Pop? Very strange comment... It's also nothing like Giving The Game Away, which was very acoustic based... Anyone that wants Thunder to just make Backstreet or Judgement Day part two can just move on....never going to happen.... Ho Hum... Sales for the new one are looking even better than 'Wonder Days' first week, so things are looking good!

I really think that Bounce would classify as being released as a single in Japan, albeit a double A side with Misunderstood. It was commercially available, not just a promo. Bounce - Misunderstood Japan 1. Bounce 2. Misunderstood (Single Mix) 3. Everyday (Acoustic) 4. Undivided (Demo)

Umm not really...

Bounce was a promo single in the states, though i doubt it got much/any airplay and a double A-side with Misunderstood in Japan... Sorry, I just saw Mik already answered this...

Waste of time. I bet the live material is just the same stuff that's already been released too. They might as well just put the new track out as a download. You can't do a best of after 2 albums...

The rest of the band will give a huge shit. If he's out then there's no more private planes (which they travel everywhere in), no more buy on's to big tours, etc. He's allowed them the opportunity to live the 80's rock star life style. I can't see him being gone as the DDs is very much his baby...
