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

Mine hasn't arrived yet. Interestingly it got PANNED by Classic Rock mag. But I'm optimistic.

That sounds so like Mike Orlando on guitar.

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

From one Sheffielder to another, cool stuff! So did you play everything and sing?

Excellent, well spotted! I've got For Facts Sake. Wasn't sure about the writing style at first, but theres so much in there, I keep going back to it. And I bought the Mother's Army 3CD set as a result too..

James Christian and Jimi Bell were hanging out at the back of the room after their set whilst Vixen were on and they were extremely nice and chatty. GPS were all really cool and friendly during their brief incarnation. And Guthrie Govan was very humble, considering he's the best guitarist on the planet. Not had a real bad one - Whitesnake didn't show up for the after-show thing at Sheffield A

Very good stuff. Where's that vocalist been hiding? And totally agree, Vinny is a top guitarist, best thing on the early Ten albums - shame the production was patchy (especially The Robe). Nice to hear him clearly.

The link didn't work on the front page, but I found it HERE. Have to say I really like it. Mr Del Vecchio does it again. I often find that a lot of Journey-esque rock sounds a bit vanilla, but this time there's a certain something that gives it a lift. Good stuff!

If this is the most up-tempo/energetic thing on the album, I won't be getting it. That'd put it in Aura territory, and too much of that sort of material soon becomes dull. If it falls somewhere in the middle I might give it a whirl.

It's not bad - I hope the new guitarist gets some moments, you want top level musicianship everywhere in Asia but when they get a new guy it can slip sometimes. John Payne era…if you like Magnum-y stuff most of the Aria Album would be right up your street: Asia - Aria Arena is patchy, has it's proggy moments: Asia - Day Before theWar Aqua was the first JP album, had this funky nu

It's quite cute, I think. The guitarist is the one I know. He has been on music forums since he was 14, big fan of anything rock, desperate to learn the guitar, and now he's pushing 20, he can play, got a record deal, writes most of the riffs - living the dream!

Shameless plug: mate of mine has a band and they've just released an album: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?feature=c4-feed-u&list=PLz06zPC7R9TgwO0rxOJCoyujy_ENo3X8i They're all young, Swedish (of course!), and on the Swedish label that handles HEAT and Europe. For a first effort, I think it's pretty good. See what you think. I'm liking tracks 4, 5 and 6 best, although track 3 has

Glenn Hughes, without a doubt. And Michael Kiske. Ian Gillan does his best, but blew his cords out on Born Again... To be fair, Stephen Percy didn't have much more than a one octave range to start with...

It's growing on me. Some of the vocal melodies needed a bit of work, and Jake doesn't really tear my head off the way he did the first time I heard Bark At the Moon, but I'm still listening to it regularly, which is more that I can say for any recent Ozzy material. They should have used the vocalists lower register more, that's for sure.

Wow, quick response! Yup, just getting old and cynical - sorry about that chief! Seriously, it is interesting to hear different takes on an original idea, that's one of the best parts of these things. At least there isn't any of this voting malarky involved - some decent comps have been ruined by that, huge potential for abuse. Hope you get what you're after.

With Timo Tolkki and now Docker's Guild, plus one or two more recently, I wonder if it's: -Giving someone a break -Advertising -Cutting costs by getting a load of tracks done for free? Staind did it 3 years ago, and they used the winner's entry as a bonus track on their album, which I though was very cool of them. Maybe I'm just getting old = cynical...

Saw Def Leppard on the Adrenalize tour in Sheffield in "the round". Viv Campbell was stood facing the centre, stepped back, foot went past the edge of the stage onto the ramp, Viv overbalances, and vanishes into the front rows. Whoever was on sound was seriously on the ball, Viv went out of the mix, up came Phil to cover, and about 20 seconds later Viv was propelled back onto the

It could well be a harmoniser, with the harmony a few fractions of a semitone sharp or flat. It produces a particular type of chorusing. And a ton of reverb, or possibly a short delay. Of course, it might just be a chorus with a bit of delay on the repeat too.

Yes, it does. Tommy was fired after the album was done - he was good live but slow in the studio, and Ozzy/Sharon decided to replace him, so Carmine Appice was brought in. Don was never more than a session by session player, he was still in Rainbow. Bob was fired after DOAM because he stood up to Ozzy/Sharon about firing Lee Kerslake (he wanted to keep him) amongst other things, then re-hired a

He's better when someone else is writing or in charge: Millenium, Ark, Masterplan. None of his solo albums are as good as the stuff he produced in those projects (Ark: Burn the Sun remains one of my desert island discs). But as everyone has said, his pipes are amazing.
