Sort of underwhelmed really. He's good, no question. But why leave Night Ranger? As has been said, they appear to be more active. Unless it's an "offer he can't refuse" - no idea how well each band pays. Really you want a Vegas gig these days, I guess. Oh well, onwards.

I found the first one patchy, but I must say I like what I hear so far.

Wow, never been called The Good Doctor before. Basically a Swedish journo has tracked down Yngwie's old teachers, family, childhood friends, ex-band members, ex-wives, ex-managers, and constructed a very in-depth bio. It's very long, well written, and is full of fascinating information. Spoilers: -he used to steal equipment from music shops, from strings to guitars. -he was fired from Ste

Michael Sweet's bio? No prizes: It's called Honestly. It's OK. A bit short. Loads of chapters, but they're maybe 2 pages long. He touches on quite a lot, but very superficially, and although there's a fair bit about Stryper it's HIS bio, not Stryper's, and there are gaps. Finished it in a day. The best ones I've read are Bob Daisley's "For Facts Sake", which isn't the best writt

Jakey wouldn't fit. Neither would Jimi. They have very distinctive styles, which would clash with the Whitesnake style IMO. Now someone like John Norum on the other hand...

I agree it's got a bit samey. I've got all the albums so far and TBH I only ever play the first one. Tolki's output is patchy, he has produced some gems with Stratovarius, and hopefully he'll use this opportunity well.

Yup, Stryper. Although I have to confess, having listened to his first solo album, I just didn't bother after that, far too "middle of the road". Musically Stryper have an edge which makes them stand out in the genre as performers and musicians. The solo stuff I heard was just too safe.

England had more shots, but couldn't get them on target. That's the difference. Rooney's miss was particularly crucial, I thought. It's going to be an interesting group, that's for sure, especially after Uruguay lost to Costa Rica - no-one saw that one coming!

Off the top of my head... Don't Pay the Ferryman - Chris de Burgh (although the guitar needs more prominence) Warriors of the Wasteland - Frankie Goes to Hollywood, with Gary Moore on guitar. And I dare y'all to watch THIS all the way through (especially from about 3:30)

Nothing bad to say, need to spend more time digging around. Although I'll miss the old site, you get used to a set-up.

All this shows is the range used across their recordings. Clearly there's little market to hear Mariah sing into the bass range, doesn't mean she can't go lower than is heard on her releases. Vocalists like Bruce Dickinson and Mark Boals have (or had) astoundingly high top notes, but rarely did they sing low, so who knows?! Minnie Ripperton has that superb high part in her big hit Lovin' Y

This has turned up on a forum but no details. Very sad if it's true, he was an unbelievable bass player.

OK, from 0:45 to 1:10, I kind of get it. But given Led Zeppelin's resources, they've got no chance.

Well, from a different angle, the new CD is better than anything they've done since Empire, that's for sure. Although I have issues with the running order. I do like some part of Promised Land, but the title track is just dull. And vvvveeeeeerrrrryyyyy llllooooooonnnnnnnnggggg...

I know he's the "voice" of Ratt, but Stephen's got one octave if he's lucky, and his tone is shot. The real talent is Warren, he's by far the best musician in the band. I hope he does something good.

I read that it was meant to represent the uncertainly of life - we don't know when it'll end. Although I like Mike Portnoy's explanation too. There isn't a DT album I dislike, but I totally agree you could put together a playlist that'd be best appreciated by those on this forum. Octavarium probably has the most mainstream stuff in places - I Walk Beside You is practically a U2 song. And

I owned Animalize and loved it, but apart from that only really heard the '80's singles until recently. Lick it Up is surprisingly good, although VV does overplay. Best solo is probably the one Rick Derringer plays! No idea why they needed a guest... CCN certainly has a fair amount of filler, but the singles are high quality AOR, I think the Heart comparison is a good one. Or Bon Jovi. Never
