Thin Lizzy for me every time. Distant seconds change over time but currently would be Survivor, Marillion and Blackfoot. Cheers Mark H

I've got all Mike's solo releases and have to say he's produced a cracking body of work as a solo artist. I'll pick up a copy of Museum at Fridays gig at Bolton. Cheers Mark H

Looking forward to the Ten cd immensely. I thought Stormwarning and H&S were both solid cds, with a couple of tracks on each which were up there with Ten's best. Particularly 'The last time' and 'Lights go down'. My current top 3 for 2014 are: HEAT LRS Brother Firetribe. Cheers Mark H

Saw hin in London a couple of years ago - he puts on a great acoustic show, very intimate, with lots of stories about the old days between tracks. Expect a pretty long set - over 2 1/2 hours last time. I shall be at the Bolton gig. Cheers Mark H

He also co-wrote the unreleased 'Home at Last' with Steve Perry. Stunning tune and very tasteful solo. Cheers Mark H

Although I currently only buy physical cds I wont particularly mourn their loss as long as a I can download high quality (lossless ) alternatives. I am more worried by the financial implications of these changes and the fact that it might limit an artists ability to make a living out of music and thus dissuade the production of new product/artists.

First time around I ended up seeing them at Wembley Arena as I either wasnt aware there was a GMEX gig or maybe it was sold out. Anyway, last nights gig was superb. Great to go to a gig where you know every song, if not a little odd to be aware of what would be played next. Crowd were in great form, singing along to every track and the ad libs 'Ban the bomb' etc. The band seemed genuinely surp

Watched the new 'Cold in July' movie tonight, that stars Michael C Hall (Dexter), Sam sheppard and Don Johnson. Not a bad effort at all, quite gritty and dark, and helped along by a fine rock soundtrack including White Lion's 'Wait' during the final scene and throughout the credits. Cheers

I bought 'Porno' and '3 sides' back in the day and thought at that time that they were ok, but had a lot of filler. I even saw them live in about 92, but only really went as it was my first opportunity to see Schon play in the UK, as Hardline were supporting. My overriding memory of that gig was how great Schon and Giolli were, and I have little memory of Extreme other than the gig was full of t

Ritz for me - cracking venue. I also have a soft spot for Holmefirth Picturedome though, (even if it could do with a lick of paint or two). Cheers Mark H

I have zero interest in seeing a Perry fronted Journey gig, but would be on the first plane to the states if he did a solo gig. Cheers Mark H

He sounds great - lower sure, but hits the notes he needs to in 'Open Arms' Hope we don't have to wait another 15 years for his next performance.... Cheers Mark H

Terry - agree with you on all aspects except Walsh. I never saw Kansas when he was in his prime, but caught them a couple of times about 3 years ago when thy supported Journey around Europe, and have to say Walsh was astounding every night. I came away very impressed. If that was him as a shadow of his former self he must have been truely remarkable back in the day. Cheers Mark H

Generally I stay sober at most gigs, typically as the manchester ones I usually drive to. The exception would be festivals (FF, MR etc) where I like to get a steady beer buzz on for the duration of the day. Tricky to maintain the balance though.......... Worst experience was at a holiday gig watching Boston in Florida with my daughter, where some drunk woman behind me berated/prodded/spilt

Amusing review but can't say I agree with the guy's verdict. Loved Godzilla which IMO is better than the new XMen movie, which I've just taken the kids to see. Cheers Mark H.

I bought a tix yesterday and it was numbered 195, so looks like its about 50% sold at the moment. I would expect you will still be able to get tix at door. Cheers Mark H

Been to dozens of his shows over the years. The only poor performance I've seen him give was the first time (WL supporting Crue at the NEC) where he seemed to rush the lyrics. Every time since then, whether WL, FoN or solo gigs, both electric and acoustic, he has been excellent; even when playing to only 14 people as at Rios one year. I personally think he has found his niche with these aco

Its a contentious issue. I do record a couple of tracks at most gigs I go to, and post to Youtube IF the quality comes out ok, but wouldn't dream of putting something up If I thought it showed the artist in a poor light. To that end I always use a small point n shoot camera that captures great audio, rather than a phone. I've even had bands contact me afterwards to get copies of footage

Mr Amazon has just dropped off LRS and the new HEAT. I found previous comparisons to Trial by Fire encouraging, and on first listen I like it. Cheers Mark H

Been there dozens of times and have to say never found the sound an issue, although its definitely better on the floor than at the upper levels. Viewing is a different matter - I wouldn't bother seeing any band from the upper tier. Its like watching ants dance on a postage stamp. Cheers Mark H

Every time I've seen them they have sounded great. I agree that youtube vids are very variable, especially if recorded using phones. I have a small Lumix camera that I use at gigs which takes video with great audio, but if I have used my iphone for a track at the same gigs it usually sounds dire. Cheers Mark H
