I've been lucky enough to see HEAT maybe a dozen times in the UK, from their first headlining gig in Manchester in the Kenny days, when only a couple of dozen attended, to their last show which pulled maybe 400. They are slowly building a following, and I even heard them on our national rock station last week. They need a good festival slot, say at Download, to keep pushing to the next level. T

Vital Signs has certainly crept into my top 5. And being a fairly new Survivor fan its got there on the strength of the songs rather than any nostalgic connection back to the day. The others in my top 5 AOR would be: Shy - ST White Widdow - Serenade Pride - Far from the Edge. White Lion - Pride. Cheers Mark H

Saw John Waite a couple of years ago at the Robin and he had a punk looking guitarist with him then. Never caught his name. Not sure if its the same guy but I thought he was pretty good on the night, even if his look was competely at odds with the rest of the band. It wont put me off seeing Night Ranger again.

I too was very late 'discovering' Survivor and had only heard 2 or 3 songs before being blown away by Jimi's performance at Firefest, and getting to meet him briefly in the Welbeck Since then Ive got every Survivor cd and was looking forward to the UK gigs later this year immensely. My thoughts are with his wife n kids. I shall be having a cold one and watching the FF dvd in his honour t

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

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.

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
