Jeez.. I wish he was lip synching when I saw them and Styx co-headline in Edmonton in 07.. Def Leppard's sound that night (everything, vocals, guitars, bass, etc) was awful. When you have to leave the floor area go behind closed doors at the back of the arena for it to sound "good" you know you are in trouble. FTR, Styx's sound that night was crystal clear.

Finally getting around to listening to some of the suggestions.. Pleasantly surprised by Blackberry Smoke. Not what I was expecting. So far so good!

The fires are about 4 hours north from me, my hometown is currently accepting evacuees with open arms - housing, schools, etc. I worked up there for 8 months in 2008. The entire area where I stayed is gone. I have friends and family that have lost everything.

Gov't has been dragging their heels - they spent hundreds of millions to help Syrian refugees, giving them Iphones, hotel rooms, forced military personnel off bases - for you guessed it, etc but haven't come even close to doing that to their own Citizens. Military bases opened for evacuees? Nope. I've heard they are matching Red Cross donations and wait for it.. sending COTS. That's it so

Yet what saddens me is the world's response.. When Katrina happened, Canadians were some of the first to offer aid.. Australian wild fires, Japanese Tsunami, the list goes on. Where is the rest of the world when we need help? We haven't heard squat from other world leaders.

This is mind numbing. Thank you all for your kind words. To just indicate just how big this fire is and continuing to be: http://www.macleans.ca/news/canada/how-big-is-the-fort-mcmurray-fire/

I worked in Fort McMurrary about 8 years ago, twinning that highway you are seeing on the news footage (Hwy 63) south of the city. Everything around where I stayed.. is gone. I have friends and family up there who have lost everything. I'm still in shock. Over 80 THOUSAND evacuated with over 1600 buildings either burned or destroyed by fire. If you can help, please donate to the Canad

I was 10.. It was one of the first cassettes I'd ever bought. Before I got really hooked into music, My tape collection was Men At Work S/T, April Wine Animal Grace, Police Synchronicity and Asia - Asia. My old AM Country Station used the beginning "Sole Survivor" as their news intro.. lol. Took me back to a time where I listened to the radio and just listened to my music on a b

Haven't really heard to much of the Dead Daisies now that John Corabi is their lead singer.. have been meaning to check them out. Didn't care for their first album.. couldn't get into the singer. Tried listening to Rival Sons again this morning. Maybe I just am Led Zepplined out. I shut it off after the first four songs. They are just trying too hard to be Led Zeppelin.. or is it the White

I loved 80s Hard Rock, 70s Arena Rock, and 90s stuff like Collective Soul, Harem Scarem, M3, etc. 2000s - Avenged, Volbeat. Just discovered Trivium, got into a few songs, then the guy started sounded like Cookie Monsterand I never went back to it. Scandi Metal is what you are calling it now? Masterplan/Jorn - never got into it, I put Treat in there as well. Shrug. I'm just like this with

Treat fits in the whole "Euro" metal that just all sounds the same and generic. IMHO.

But the Radio is where I've heard stuff like Monster Truck, Temperance, Pretty Wreckless, etc. I'll give some of these a listen too, thanks.

I had high hopes for Wonder Days by thunder, but after a few spins, there is more songs I skip on it than listen too. I loved 80s Hard Rock, 70s Arena Rock, and 90s stuff like Collective Soul, Harem Scarem, M3, etc. New Butch - gawd awful. Thunder - meh. CS - 3-4 tracks are ok. Haven't even purchased the new HS live CD/DVD.

I've seen Thornley and Big Wreck live a few times. Living in Canada it is part of the overplayed "Nickelback Offspring" variety. Must of hit a dry spell if he's covering and re-releasing one of his own songs..

Hey all.. Haven't really posted much these past few months.. but I'm just curious, is it just me or is there really nothing music wise to get "excited" about anymore? I turn on the radio and it's well, shit. Maybe I've just gotten to busy with life, but I use to enjoy listening to new bands and their products, and as of right now, everything sounds so generic, it leaves me flat.

Saw them open for BOSTON - December 13th, 1998 at Northlands Coliseum. 17 years old and 4th row floor. Phenomenal show. Far From Over is one of my anthems. Always will be! Might have to check out this DVD!

If he does read the board.. Great way to respond to the people that PAID for the CD isn't it now? I agree with Robert, and many of you here.. I love his stuff, but Afraid of Ghosts just left me flat.. and that's the first time I've really said that about any of his stuff.

Let me start by saying I'm a huge Butch Fan. Left Of Self Centered is one of my favorite Cds. I've purchased pretty much everything he's put out, and I finally was in Edmonton yesterday and found "Afraid of Ghosts". Was excited to hear the rest of it. I know Butch has had some huge tragedies in his life (house fire, losing his father, etc) but did he just decide to become a shoestar

Cut The Cord is pretty much The Pretty Reckless's Way Down Below is it not? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EaXqBdwFnMc This still leaves me flat. New Collective Soul so much better. Shrug

I heard "This" when see saw them with Moist, Styx and Bryan Adams last year (Big Music Fest - Kitchener, Ontario $140 bucks total!) I'm digging these tracks. Didn't think I would!

Trooper Beer is really good - AC/DC Lager though - not sure what they were getting at, not a traditional Aussie beer, It's brewed in France! As for the Motorhead Beer - that's the one I'm most eager to try, but it's not available in Canada as of yet.

You know he'd probably be saying the same thing if Styx replaced DDY with a CLONE (ala Journey, Judas, etc).. Which by the way THEY (Tommy, JY and Chuck) DIDN'T EVER WANT TO DO IN THE FIRST PLACE..

I caught Roxette back in 2012 - she did look frail and they had a back up singer do the higher notes (which they actually had when I saw them in 92 as well) but I think part of that could be age. I am not sure if she's had any health setbacks since then.

I awoke this morning to the terrible news that Nick Marsh, Lead Singer and Guitarist of 80s goth/punk/pop/nu wave band Flesh For Lulu passed away this morning after a courageous battle with Cancer. Ever have a song get entrenched into your soul and become a definite soundtrack song to your life? That's what "I Go Crazy" was for me. From there I got "Long Live The New Flesh&q
