Yeah...sorry fellas... Winery Dogs are obviously phenomenal players and Kotzen's got a good voice, but something doesn't click with me. I find most of the new melodic rock/AOR/Hard Rock is just safe, formulaic and dull. LRS - prime example! Load of old tosh IMHO! New House of Lords...dull...Revolution Saints...waste of time. Not saying the bands performances are rubbish or anything, but the n

Now, that's a great piece of work! Refreshing to hear something a little different. Really good sound. Am interested to hear more from these guys...

Latest Lady A - yes! Fabulous modern country-pop album. Not heard the Big n Rich - will look out for that. Thanks!

I'm guessing Terry's last post was in response to mine... Yes Terry, FM are an obvious exception and Blackberry Smoke do have their moments that get me, 'tis true. House of Lords I have become very bored with (although I still revisit the old CDs occasionally). The rest that you mention don't do it for me at all I'm afraid... Sorry...I'm probably in the minority, which I happily accept and

I really like Rick's 3 minute pop-rock songs and while this may be a 'safe' track, I gleaned enough from this little vid to excite me more than most of the stuff touted on the frontpage in the past few months, 'shitty' vid though it may be. I can still hear a cool melody, nice harmonies and even a little guitar solo (rare in a RS song these days!!!!) Very little new rock music excites me these

I really like that! Haven't enjoyed anything much by this band since the Empire days, but that'll do nicely!

The tracks on the MR.com intro-advert page (whatever its a called) are weak in my opinion. They sound a million dollars as does everything that Alessandro produces, but to me the songs are not great...the lyrics on This Love Our Paradise are a particular issue for me. Having said that, this kinda thing is popular round here, so it could be just that my tastes have shifted. The voice sounds str

I saw her live supporting Lady Antebellum a couple of years back. She was amazing. I think she's the real deal, although, on record, a little too traditional in the arrangements for my tastes. I like a lot of country music, but the trend for 'bro country' artists with dumbs lyrics, etc, isn't great, although the rock element of the sound is appealing. At least Kacey writes cool lyrics...

Peterik will never rejoin Survivor if his autobiography is anything to go by...Rightly so by the sound of it, although its obviously only one side of the story. They should just call it a day, I think.

Apparently Wired Up is in the July schedule with a couple of White Lion albums... Still no sign of Race to Paradise. Ref the remaster process, where it works best (e.g. the RC Rick Springfield reissues) they are slightly louder, have better bass response and seem to have better instrument separation - with the more hi-tech multi-layered stuff, that's a godsend as you pick up little nuances tha

Thanks for the info. I suspected that there would mainly be remixes/extended mixes. Still worth buying, IMHO...

This is the best news I have heard in a while! WTTRW is one of my all-time favourite albums and I cannot wait to hear it with the usual great RC remastering job!! And it has bonus tracks...wonder whether they'll be studio cuts or live tracks? I do recall some 12" mixes in the 80s. I always thought Go On suffered in a bit comparison, as the songs were less instant and the production wasn't

One great example is Dann Huff playing the solo on the pop single version of Here I Go Again by Whitesnake...uncredited at the time. Then there's Mike Slamer apparently playing guitars on Warrant's albums. Of course, they may not be things you like, but you get the idea... ;-)

It's the volume of work they get that tells who is 'best'. I'd wager that top producers hire the player who'll do it well and quickly cos in the long run that's cheaper, even with the fees such guys can demand. Playing simple parts brilliantly is more important than shredding too... Just watch Tim Pierce's YouTube channel to see how amazing he is when playing 'simple' stuff to layer songs up from

I'd imagine that there are 2 main reasons why this happened (maybe still happens). 1. The actual chaps in the band can't play well enough to record the songs to the right standard (as defined by the producer/record company, of course). That was allegedly the case with the drummer from Cinderella who apparently couldn't play at all well in the studio, but was fine live... I'm sure there are oth

Absolutely brilliant show! All bands were really good. Romeo's Daughter and FM obviously in a different league to No Hot Ashes, but the opening act were still good! Great set lists all round too...

Yeah, I think it was all the co-writes or being forced to play songs by outside writers that made them cross... Fair enough I suppose, but the fact is that many of those songs were their better tracks (well, at least to a lot of us melodic rock fans anyway)!!!

I can hear a load of similarity to Toby Hitchcock, but also to Dennis De Young. I think Scherer sounds very much like Dennis on some of these tracks and some of the more pomp-esque or rock-operas-esque moments have little echoes of Styx as well as the very obvious PoL and Survivor influences. Great album all told. Am really enjoying it... Way better than the last PoL one IMHO...

...And we should, of course, remember that they are currently on tour promoting a new album with a limited setlist time. What are they gonna do? I think we all know the answer to that one! :-) Some of the comments from some people above about the setlist seem extremely naive, as what Europe should be doing is whatever they want to do! A band that has been going that long has the right to do th

That's great advice Steve! I play in a rock covers band and we tend to mix up the stuff we do, so we get a few 'less well known' tracks in there (e.g. Heaven and hell & Neon Knights by Sabbath) as well as the obvious... Bryan Adams stuff always goes down well. So does Bon Jovi (although there's always somebody that HATES BJ in most pubs...)we do Prayer and Wanted Dead or Alive by BJ. Thes
