I like that. Decent tune. It'll sound great live, I suspect...

Check out ex-Whiteheart and current Union of Sinners & saints drummer Jon Knox' Youtube page - some superb live Whiteheart videos from back in the day and more recently. The Powerhouse and Tales of Wonder tour vids feature guitarist Brian Wooten who is a monster player. Some fabulous songs featured... https://www.youtube.com/user/jonknox/videos

Despite featuring Dann Huff on guitar, the early Whiteheart albums aren't all that great to my ears - bit too Westcoast and too 'polite'. However, that list of their most successful albums by Totobob represents some of the finest Christian AOR ever, in my humble opinion. What I liked about Whiteheart was that they didn't always just use the same old chord structures or same old production tec

Well, the production sounds pretty good for a lite-AOR kinda thing. I like the overall feel. I probably need to sample the tracks on I-Tunes once it's released, as I did really like the track released to rock radio a few weeks back and some of these others have potential, although I suspect the whole album might be a bit too much of one thing. The ITunes samples will probably be a bit longer so o

Funnily enough, I had the Bad English cd on in the car today...first time I'd played it in a long while! Anyway, Bad English win by a whisker for me. Both albums have many great tracks and both have a couple of fillers. For me, the great songs on Bad English are slightly better and I prefer the production on it too. Curci is an amazing singer but Waite is too, just in a different way. Bo

The big issue with the Giant show was that all the lead guitar (except the beginning lead intro to I'm A Believer) was overdubbed afterwards... Something to do with the fact that his actual sound on the night was absolutely shite (I recall a review of the show stating this in one of the rock mags at the time) So, on the TV, Dann's hands were moving, but what was playing wasn't always the same...

Both bands had one really cool track, as I remember. I saw KOTG support Winger, I think, in Peterborough and Cold Sweat headlined the same venue a few months later. I wasn't overly impressed with either band's performance to be honest...

I genuinely don't know what folk really expect... Dare are never gonna do another Blood From Stone... It's always gonna be on the softer side of the rock spectrum and have some celtic influence. If one doesn't like that kinda thing, probably best to avoid the band's music...

Sorry you naysayers, but I really rather like that... It's got more balls than most of their last few albums, it's uptempo... It's got some hooks... Yeah...I like it...

Try the latest Kip Moore cd... Also try Eli Young Band and Parmalee. Lots of rock influences there. A Thousand Horses have their moments too...the cd is a bit samey but a cool rock vibe on it. Check out their rather excellent single 'Smoke'...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDWepmUXk3w

Defiants CD is my favourite rock CD of the year. Without. Question!!! The energy levels, the vocals, the guitar playing and the songs are totally infectious and I just absolutely LOVE it! Nothing new under the sun going on, but then nothing in this genre ever can be right now. Something about this album makes me wanna jump around, sing wildly (off key!) and play air guitar... Few rock CDs do tha

I'm afraid that, for me, Sunstorm have been very average for at least the last two albums. Classic example of production line AOR with little soul...a couple of good tracks and a whole lot of filler throughout...

It seems that there's a whole retro synth scene where all these artists use authentic retro synths and create 80s style pop. Much of what I found is too electronic, but every now and then you find something a little more palatable... For example, I just found this lady...'Kristine'... Very 'Dodgy 80s Soundtrack fodder' - Ignore the shittyness of the videos and there's some nice little songs l

Well, it's a great way to build a fan base from roots up. If you sit for hours signing photos, etc after a major arena show then go above and beyond meeting fans and playing acoustic sets in the streets after your main shows finish, meeting and greeting the fans, you'll soon develop a powerful fan base. I have a lot of respect for the amount of time he gives and the way he works hard like that -

I love the 'Don't Just Stand There' album. Played it to death when I first bought it on vinyl... The rest of their stuff doesn't do a lot for me though.

Gutted that I missed this tour! Saw him at C2C last year and he blew me away - so much more 'rock' live. Seems to really care about his fans too, which is nice to see.

I always thought Screw It had some utterly killer tracks (Beat the Bullet, Crazy Nites, I Still Think About You, Don't Blame It On Love, for example), but a bunch of absolute crap too like...what was it called...Horny S.O.B.?? Get Your Shit Together?? Yeah, You Want It?? Dear me... Perhaps I missed the humour or something, but they don't float my boat at all. I love the debut, FTHW, Gildersle

Weakest on the album it may be but I still really like it. I like the cheese factor - it brings a smile to my face. Overall, the most enjoyable AOR/melodic rock album I have heard in ages (although, to be fair, I haven't bought many lately) because it doesn't sound like a 'project' (even though technically it is) and doesn't sound like so many other 'projects' currently do with the same produ

Great song! The Time Love and Tenderness album has a few cracking songs on it, but they are done no favours by a mix that buries the guitar. It's definitely there (courtesy of Michael Landau on most tracks, if memory serves) but is just 'buried' in the keyboard layers. 'Time, Love & Tenderness', 'Forever Isn't Long Enough' and 'Steel Bars' in particular... I realise that most people will p

Thanks for that info Andrew. I'd not heard anything about this before. Sounds like a fun project. I'll definitely keep an ear out for more.
