Amen to that! Production issues, flaws, and all...Adrenalize was the last truly great "album" from DL. I liked parts of Slang, Euphoria, and X. Sparkle Lounge was a horrible misstep, imo. These guys need to come up with one more bit of greatness. I hope they do, but I'm not holding my breath.

I'd actually argue that this is exactly chasing trends. Right now, in rock, the popular trend is DP/Led Zep-style. Just ask The Answer, Rival Sons, Wolfmother, Scorpion Child, Kyng, and a thousand others. They even nabbed the producer du jour to get the sound down. Not really too different than going from Swedish metal band Force to hiring Kevin Elson and turning to Bon Jovi-esque pop metal

I feel the same about this as I did about Bag Of Bones. Dull, hookless, modern-day Deep Purple stuff. Hey, everybody's doing it, so why not Europe, right?! It's not that bad, it's just not that good either. I think I listened to BOB a few times, shelved it and never listened again. I probably won't give this one that much of a chance. Sounds like ground they've already covered and I'm jus

Not necessarily for everyone, but since Beth Hart is on the list, I'd add Grace Potter and the Nocturnals under TBD. New album due sometime this spring.

Just reading this story posted over at Sleaze Roxx. Bas is tragically insane. Not sure what Sweet said that was so bad. He seemed to have only spoken truth! Twitter tantrums seem to be a regular occurrence for Sebastian Bach, with Stryper frontman Michael Sweet being the most recent victim of the former Skid Row singer's anger. "Dear @michaelhsweet : shut your mouth. Before I shu

Black Tiger and Earthshaker are arguably their finest. After that, I'd check out In Rock We Trust and Down For the Count (more commercial hard rock, but worth a listen). Endangered Species is also very underrated as it did sort of return to their core sound, as did Facemelter. Ten is by far my favorite, but I understand why purists may not like it. Tons of outside writers and slick produ

I agree with that sentiment Bruce, but the Beatles were/are much more than #1 hits and album sales. They changed culture back in the 60s. They changed fashion, they changed FM radio, they changed the live music industry, they helped pioneer the music video format, they were responsible for new production innovations (ADT, feedback, loops, overdubbing, etc.), and most importantly they changed

I don't think overrated is the right word. I'm not a huge fan, but can appreciate their influence and some of the groundbreaking music and production of those albums. I feel the same about the Stones and Led Zep sometimes. While I like a lot of the tunes, it's more about the mark they left for those who came after. It's like you've heard a million times: without the Beatles there would

Robin Beck just mentioned on FB that a new HOL record is almost done. I think I read that right. Should be out sometime in 2015. JC works fast.

It's good if you like his two 90's albums - Temple Bar & When You Were Mine. Very much in the same vein, which I love but might not be for all. It's acoustic and laid back, but the words, music and voice are still fantastic.

Great album. Unfortunately, I think the band has already broken up. Noelle is on to a solo career. First album was released this year called Tongue Tied. First single is Can't Break Me...very different than Damone. Electronic and very modern. Still good though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_iUvT5uAYlg The album is a mix of new songs and some covers. You can get it here: h

That actually sounds pretty good. I hope this is as good as Sting In The Tail. I loved that album...a nice throwback to late 80s-era Scorps.

It is what it is...California blues rock influenced by Zeppelin and the Yardbirds. Don't expect big melodies and hooks. The music is based on grooves. The only problem I have is that there are too many out there doing the same thing right now. California Breed (and BCC before them), Wolfmother, The Answer, Scorpion Child, even Europe is now on this bandwagon.

I think he means the Fuck EP they released with a few songs that creatively have the title, um, "fuck" in them.

I am a huge Green Day fan, but even I cannot justify this. RRHOF continues to baffle me. GD had one groundbreaking punk revival album and then several years later they hit big with American Idiot. Not sure that warrants induction on the first try. Meanwhile, as you have all pointed out, there are too many great and influential bands still not in. Priest, Maiden, Bon Jovi, Def Lep, Motley, J

Interesting way to put out new music. Buckcherry have a monthly subscription for their new EP of cover songs. Songs include Beast of Burden (Rolling Stones), Mama Kin (Aerosmith), Devil Inside (INXS), R'n'R Damnation (AC/DC), and I've Done Everything For You (Hagar/Springfield). Production is pretty thin, so don't expect too much. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V302UIUCCr8 http:

Carnal Knowledge is my fav Van Hagar disc. I rank it with 5150 as their two best albums. Great melodies and production. Classic Hagar. Balance is okay, but spotty. Parts are very good (Not Enough, Feelin', Take Me Back) and then parts are dreadful (Amsterdam, Big Fat Money). Both albums are far better than All Music gives credit for.

Eyes is excellent. A throwback to his earlier albums. Dirty Diamonds is pretty good as well. Some filler on there, but plenty of classic Coop.

I think you hit it on the head. 3/4 of it is great. There are a few songs that I always skip (Easy Does It, Absolution Blues, Waiting On You). Overall, it's still a classic album and severely underrated as a work from both men.

Joining the ranks of amazingly mediocre acts like Imagine Dragons, The Script, and American Authors. I don't get it. I'm guessing his career will be closer to that of James Blunt more than anything else.
