Had tickets to both bands in 89/90 and ditched both shows, think they were both at the Hordern too - epic fail. Hordern's since become my favourite Sydney venue. I don't kick myself over it but punch myself in the face occasionally <sigh>

That clip doesn't make the vox sound suped up to me, I'm giving benefit of the doubt.

Heard they had a new one coming out, Davy's been calling it for a couple of years now but I didn't think it would ever happen. Are you saying 'very good' that you've heard it and that's what you think of it, or 'very good' that it's coming out? I was never a massive fan of "No Respect" but I stumbled across a Vain release in the mid-00s that surprised me how enjoyable it was, hope

+1 for me, although I always put together a mix-tape of the year's favourite tracks as part of my music nerdventure, they're always good fun to revisit. But yeah, albums start-to-finish for me.

@Irwin, wasn't ADKOT essentially an outtakes disc? Don't get me wrong I love it, but from everything I've read most of the material came from songs/song ideas from their early career. Is there much left lying around you think?

Little Ain't Enough is my favourite from the Roth catalogue, I coincidentally picked up a mint copy on vinyl just last week so while I'm looking forward to that arriving, I'm less interested in a digi remaster...but I agree with Danrox, to my ears the CD sounds fine. As to the question of whether it was a missed opportunity, I'd suggest there's a big possibility that Eddie didn't/wouldn't have

I don't think he's a good fit for VH but it's cool to hear another track in the same tone as Me Wise Magic/Can't Get This Stuff/Humans Being. Wonder what else is around from that era....anybody know?

I'm really wrapped with the Unusual Heat LP....it's been my favourite Foreigner album for years and years but it has always had a sucky sound both on CD and digi; the wax is the biz, one can feel the amp no longer struggling with the content....gah, I'm such a nerd.

More wax arrived today, superb: Foreigner - Unusual Heat Dare - Blood From Stone Bon Jovi - Slippery When Wet Ratt - Detonator Queensryche - Empire Def Leppard - Adrenalize Van Halen - F.U.C.K. My formative years are roaring back in blissful analogue :-) Hope it's all good in your respective hoods.

It's a ripping read but wow I had no idea. He's been a constant on Aussie TV for a couple of decades and while not a fan per se I would never have guessed he was in the spiral of addiction. I've laughed out loud as much as I've physically breath-held-winced while reading this book. It's not quite as horrifying as "Candy" but for me it certainly has that vibe, a Candy-lite if you will

Many thanks for reposting....indeed sounds frustrating that he doesn't elaborate on the Skid split, but by all accounts it was all down to his behaviour so while I'd have expected him to start owning it by way of the book, I'm not surprised he hasn't. Hmm, not sold yet, I'll ponder some more.

Thanks for the heads up! I'm listening to the Tora Tora ep about Wild America as I type - the only thing I ever knew about this band was from the Bill & Ted soundtrack but I'm tempted to go explore their catalogue now. Great podcast, their Radio Sucks episodes are great too.

...have been killed by a Terminator, a Predator and an Alien. I agree with you folks saying Chet was a favourite Paxton character, love that film. "That's not a joke, that's a severe behavioral disorder. I mean, the next thing you know, you'll be wearing a bra on your head!" Sad day, RIP Bill.

yeah he's a weapons grade douche bag, no doubt, but still....actually I refused to finish Kiedis' bio because I couldn't stand his douche baggery, perhaps I need not push the boat out again.

And based on the afore mentioned excerpts, he's borderline illiterate. Can anyone say editor? Sounds like he's name dropping a bit though which piques my (waning) interest.

For anyone interested, Decibel Geek recently released an Albums Unleashed episode on Skid Row's self-titled and Rachel Bolan and Michael Wagener joined them in the studio to go through the track-by-track as well as sharing memories of the recording sessions, process, et al. It's good stuff if you're into that sort of thing and have a spare hour-and-a-bit. They've also done an ep on Slave To T

I'm umming and aahhing about getting it, I've read a couple of excerpts in Rolling Stone that didn't do much to convince me, and then I read this blurb at Booktopia: Sebastian Bach is the epitome of a front man. Loud, boisterous, self-destructive, and creatively awash, he was the glam-haired and electrifying singer of Skid Row, which took the world by storm with their platinum-selling songs

+1 for vinyl, I'm a big fan. I've never needed convincing but when my Billy Satellite LP turned up and it sounded better than the Rock Candy remaster I stumped up for, it just confirmed what I already knew. Def Leppard's "Pyromania" is another classic example, even the recent remaster doesn't compare to the original wax press.

@PaulF yeah by the time we hit the arena floor it was fine. We were at the back of GA standing and the sound got worse as the show rolled on but we had a great time regardless. How was the roar when Angus showed up, place went mental hey! Great show, so glad I let bygones be bygones and showed up' Axl went on on time, band was on point, other than the muddled sound I have no complaints.

Yeah someone at Sludge posted about the Brisvegas show, 2.5 hours of Gunners goodness, and there's a rumour that Angus Young might show up for a jam, wahoo! I'm outa here, here's to it!

Fair play. I take it back and stand corrected, based on these replies it seems folks do prefer a shorter albums these days. I still dig 12-15 tracks so I'll be over here in the minority if you need me ;-) I guess for me it takes so long for my favourite artists to get new material out that I'm all about a more-the-merrier approach. Re Toto, I'm only a casual fan but stick to the first fou

After reading some of the best-of lists going around recently I thought I'd revisit these two discs since they kept popping up. I have to say that Damned was my favourite but I'm finding Blessed is the more consistent of the two, anyone else? Neither as immediate as the first two Sixx:AM discs but if I had to pick one it would be Blessed. They're nothing if not prolific albeit a bit same-s

@Purple, interesting to hear that. The general consensus as far as I can tell is that albums are far too short these days. Is it a Toto thing or your opinion in general? I'm just curious. I'm in the albums-are-too short camp but I'll admit to avoiding artists that insist on 6-minute or more tracks, I'd much rather 14 4-min tracks than five 10 minute tracks any day.

Will watch the new 24 with some trepidation, I think it blew itself out to the point of no return but I'll keep an open mind. Also just started: Pure - Amish mafia running drugs based on true events, go figure!? Mary Kills People - light-hearted if black humoured take on assisted suicide Cardinal - police procedural, seems a bit done-and-done but so far so good and if nothing else it's ex

I too enjoy Threat, took a lot of persistence though as it wasn't as immediate as their previous efforts were for me, and I join you others in missing their uptempo stuff. Sound Of Madness was epic and Amaryllis not far behind it.
