I thought the Biffy chap was ill-suited to the style of the song, both vocally and guitar-wise, but he gave it all he'd got, which is crucial at these events... I was also struck by the fact that Slash's solo was quite different from the original. Not that it's a bad thing...my band cover that song and my attempts to play something akin to Randy's solo are best not mentioned... Yikes!!! ;-)

Yes, that track is not as good as the rest of the album... I am office-based today writing up a lengthy report, which is really very boring to do, so will sit with the headphones on and give the first and second albums another spin...

I played the first album for the first time in ages last night. Seemed better than I remembered it... Haven't dared try the second one again yet. Maybe it'll make good 'washing the dishes' music for later :-)

Dunno why, but I never 'got' VEGA before... The first album was really hit and miss for me. I downloaded it off I-Tunes as it was cheaper than the CD, which is a tell-tale sign that I wasn't convinced... I did the same with the second album after hearing that great first single...and then really didn't like the album at all...so didn't even consider buying the new one. And then my mate got us

I think I detected a harmoniser on backing vocals on Where Are You Now. The effect sounded like the vocal harmoniser FX unit I have, which is why I spotted it. It'd just be adding layers to what was being sung live. It didn't sound like additional samples... However, the keyboard player and was definitely singing live, as was the sax player, so that gave 3 part harmonies. The drummer may ha

I agree about CITA/GoA. Their set was very well paced...the albums can be a bit mid-paced and samey but they avoided that and played a blinder. Wished I'd delayed my meal break on Saturday and seen Babylon AD, but I know none of their songs, so opted to miss them and see Pretty Maids instead, as I do know a handful of their tracks. Probably a mistake in retrospect. Similarly, I had to eat on Sun

Apologies...they were the worst band FOR ME. Happy to be told I'm a tasteless twat... It wouldn't be the first time, won't be the last ;-) The 'thunderous metal' bit aside, the singer's vocals were very poor...he seemed to be really struggling, even to hold the melodies. They played well enough, but it was just a wash of noise...as the mix did them no favours, as even the more tuneful stuff th

I was there Saturday and Sunday. Best bands of those 2 days were Boulevard and Danger Danger. Worst band I saw was Pretty Maids..too loud, poor vocals, too much thunderous metal for me...not good! From the Fire were under rehearsed. Axxis were a nice surprise...most enjoyable! I missed Babylon Ad and Brother Firetribe for meal breaks but enjoyed Autograph, Coney hatch and Black n Blue. When Fireh

New LBT isn't that great on first listen. I prefer their earlier material, especially A Place To Land and The Reason Why...their best two records by a long way. Tornado and the new one see them using a different producer who is trying to be all clever and unique and 'hyper-modern' with the production and I think it's getting in the way a bit. But that's possibly just me...

Both are excellent bands! LBT are more traditional country on some of their earlier material, but there are always songs that have more pop-rock feel on all of the cds. I have LBT's new one but haven't listened yet. The new LA album iS their best yet, IMHO. I have seen both bands live in the UK and will be seeing LA again at Country2Country festival in London next year. LBT blew me away at the

Apparently he earned £27 in total for his contribution to Baker Street, which was his fee for the session... But afterwards, his 'per session' fee increased dramatically, so, although he got no royalties, he was able to earn as a result of it in the long run...

I remember back in the Master of Puppets era there were several mentions in Kerrang about Lars having massive timing problems in the live shows. I don't own anything Metallica have done cos it ain't my cup of tea, but I guess some of the issues he had may have been around the increasing complexity of some of their tracks at that time, as some of them weren't exactly 'start at 100 mph and carry on

He's getting older and (hopefully) playing music that he enjoys. Plenty of people will buy it and enjoy it too. I haven't enjoyed much of what he's done since that single he did with the Spice Girl, but hey...one man's meat is another man's poison and all that...

Battery charge doesn't hold for ever. I have had mine a few years and it doesn't hold full charge anything like as well as it did. I find iTunes really intuitive and easy to use. I download and transfer CDs. I have rarely had any problems with it.

The mastering process enables the eq to be refreshed so it brings out the bass more. thats definitely the case on this and on other RC remasters. I have bought many of them and they very rarely miss the mark. Vital Signs remaster has a more full sound that does give more bottom end. if one is a fan of the band, one should buy it immediately...

Yeah, its a good track. Very much business as usual for the band, but I must admit that the whole thing sounds really good! Great production, great performances... Looking forward to the album, but hoping it sticks with me for longer than the last one did. I got bored of a lot of that very quickly, unlike the debut...

One of the very best! For me, it shares top spot with Rick Springfield's Living in Oz, just ahead of Journey's Escape. When Seconds Count has grown on me considerably since the Rock Candy remaster came out and included Burning Heart - it made the album complete and I now listen to it almost as often as Vital Signs. Premonition is my favourite of the Bickler era, followed by Caught in the G

Well, I am an absolutely huge fan of Survivor, both Bickler and Jamison eras and I have a ticket for the London show. If they decided to do it in tribute, I'd probably still go along, but long term surely it's now time to call it a day. The original members all must be into their mid 60s by now and in some ways this would just be the time to call it and allow the memory of the band to remain posi

Go West are still going strong with some excellent new music (albeit less electronic and programmed than their classic debut.) My wife is a huge fan...and I really like them too. We regularly go and see them live and have met them on occasion. The singer, Peter Cox is a lovely bloke who still has a great voice. The current live band is also ridiculously talented. The guitarist in particular is br

Rick Springfield, esp Livin in Oz and Rock of Life, and Survivor are my defaults, although I also have a host of AOR soundtrack compilations on I Tunes which also get heavy rotation. Am currently enjoying the Rock Candy remaster of Scandal ft Patty Smyth 'The Warrior'. Awesome album, and it comes with the original EP tracks as a bonus! 30 years old and it seems like I first heard it only yeste
