By all accounts he's a bit of a donut, so if I were Angus and co. I'd piss him off and get on with the job, because that's how they operate and why compromise that now after all these years??!!!?. They've been a no-mess-no-fuss band since day dot and at this late stage of their career I don't see a reason to make time for shenanigans. Take Wright or Slade back out, or that dude from the film

Agreed, really enjoyed the "Killing..." remaster, the rest aren't much chop though.

In a rare moment this afternoon I thought I'd fire up some of my old Mega faves (Extinction, Youth, Cryptic), but found the only versions I have are the remasters that Dave decided were such a great idea to do...think it was '04? Anyway, it reminded me of how he ripped the guts out of them, the drums sound thin, the solos sound obviously spliced, there really is nothing to enjoy about them at

Ozzmosis has a place in time for me, so I dig it more for the music than for the memories so it rates top 3 Ozzy albums for me, but someone else mentioned "No More Tears" so I made a note of spinning up the remaster when I got home from work this arvo - awesome! That's gonna get a spot on the iPhone. So thanks for that, the to-and-from train session gets some classic tunes tomoz!

Listening to it as I type and first impressions are that I love it, I thought this was the type of rock I'd grown out of but there I go. Huh. Super voice though, it reminds me of how good he made Lynch Mob sound...and that's a whole other conversation. Anyway, here's to a full album if there's one in the works, it's good stuff.

I was a big fan of Johnson during his early Shield career when he was pure speed, with movement in the air, but as he progressed into the Aussie squad he started losing his control when under pressure, so he eased his pace in favour of accuracy, and to compensate he resorts to soften batsmen up...just a spectator's opinion. But with that said his bouncer has become very accurate as well. I ca

So incredibly unlucky, its a one in a bazillion. Thoughts to the Hughes and Abbott families, very sad. Looking ahead it'll be interesting to see what Mitchell Johnson does this summer, intimidating batsmen is his only weapon and he's the incumbent quickie. Mmmm, interesting times ahead.

By that I mean does it lower levels on the 'louder' tunes to match the 'quieter' tunes, or the other way around? I've got a couple of albums that I simply haven't been able to level up, one in particular, Foreigner's "Unusual Heat", has sounded so quiet on every format I've owned except for the original cassette I had it on back in the day. Another is The Angels' "Howling"

Ah, yeah but Mike wasn't involved and Eddie was off chops, and while the VH bros are as coy as ever, something tells me things have settled down ten years later. So bringing Mike and Sammy back in and switching Wolfie to rhythm/lead hasn't been attempted, and remains my castle in the sky.

F--kin' pisses me off that we get slugged like this down under, doesn't cost them any more to distribute the media. And they wonder why people won't stump up for music these days. Make it 10 bucks like the rest of the world and I'll buy to my heart's content, but 19 bucks... >(

Not that I care so much, anything VH related in the last decade has been frought with speculation and I became tired of it long ago. Anyone interested in a live package? I went to see them in Sydney on their last tour, it was a quality show despite being marred by sound issues but I'm not sure it was good enough to relive on disc. Maybe.

Listening to "Million Miles An Hour" for the first time, and it's just a straight copy of "Because Of You" with a few different inflections. WTF?!!? I just espoused my love of the band a few topics down and here I am listening to them rip themselves off. Oh dear... Is this why people hate them and I haven't noticed it before...? I'm not sure I want to know the answer

Yeah sorry dude, can't do the ballads. Totally agree with "This Afternoon" and "Rockstar" as cool tracks, but yeah nah happy to ditch the ballads. Horrific. Ok I don't mind "Photograph", as weird as that may sound. I'd take Dark Horse over Reasons simply because Chad put some solo guitar work of into it; was nice to hear more than the drab drone of post grunge

One of my fav gigs in recent years was seeing them live at Newcastle (AUS) Entertainment Centre. Had a lot to do with the venue and the company but they were hands down awesome. Was on the Dark Horse tour. Seen them live a couple of times but that was an outstanding show, they are a great live band IMO. I can take or leave Chad's hair choices but he's a great front man!

I'm happy to confess that Motley's still a guilty pleasure of mine, but I've been vehemently anti-country for as long as music was a conscious pleasure, so the idea of combining them really did not excite me one bit. But, I saw the Nashville Outlaws album pop up and I thought, you know what, I'll see what Country can do with my good ol' Motley. And daaaammmmn, it's actually really entertainin

Switch Wolfie to rhythm/lead so Eddie can play keys if-and-when, and Sam can still step into rhythm/acoustic when he wants; Dave singing Van Roth, Sammy singing Van Hagar, its money in the bank!

I'm enjoying the series but have to say the songs are a bit weak to my ears. I'm not a Foos tragic but love One By One and Wasting Lights, in that order. Sounds like more of a traditional Foos record on the way, stripipng out the bombast and going the sorta-folksy Foos road they used to travel back in the 90s.

Nickelback have been a guilty pleasure of mine for a long time now, and for mine, each album gets an updated punch to the sound, but, they get too ballad-heavy. The rockers are great on Here And Now but once again there are too many ballads for my liking, and Nickelback's ballads are bad ballads. All The Right Reasons and Dark Horse were much stronger albums, but if you cherry pick all the ro

I'd argue it's the best series I've watched in the TV modern era, but I argue with myself a lot. Check out Ray Donovan if you haven't already, it's also up there for quality, intense drama. And AMC's new series Halt And Catch Fire is also good but you might need a bit of a nerdy bent to appreciate it.

I agree, Scott, and to take it a step further, my opinion is this album is a bit of a mess. I've only listened to it a few times so maybe it'll grow on me, but maybe it isn't worth my time. Mind you there are a couple of good tracks on it, so I can now put together a pretty comprehensive and high quality mixtape of all three Sixx:AM albums, and that suits me fine. It might feed the "c

Agreed! His singing voice is actually fine for the style of rock he (and Slaughter) play. I simply don't understand why he persists with the squeal, it has long been irrelevent and his voice just can't cope, and both for years now.

He's openly admitted a while back to freaking out a bit when he discovered his hair was thnning on top. These guys are all 50+ (?) so it'd be a dead set miracle if they weren't going bald in some way shape or form, or as you say, lucky. Tico and David have certainly been receding for some time. There has always been speculation about Nikki Sixx's mane, which from the latest promo photos is

Not sure how extensive the library is yet but they're 3-4 bucks per album cheaper than iTunes. I have an account and have bought a couple of albums and the quality is fine. Comes built-in to Windows 8/8.1 but the service is available through any browser.

Yeah sensational album, as solid a hard rock album as has been released in years, I'm very impressed. Great coincidence is my copy turned up in the post this morning and it's been on repeat ever since. I agree with Marco, yes, the 17 tracks are a lot to digest, but it means they're not dragging more cash out of us by releasing an EP or a deluxe edition. I find it hard to argue its the be
