Well…if JEL can keep it together now..with Chas West and Anthony Esposito in the band, they might become something to watch….

He is trying to establish TEMPLE OF ROCK as a "band", he doesn't see it as Michael Schenker and the band TOR. They used the MS name as a way to get it started, and are slowly making it less of the focal point.

The Japanese BEST OF is a different compilation, but does not appear to have the 45 version. My guess would be, the reason its not been on any CDs, BEST OF's of BFTA reissues, is maybe it rights etc are owned by the film company or there are some legalities preventing its use. I'm sure it would have been used by now if it was easy enough to do so, after all..the BFTA reissues and BEST OFF's have

To be fair, fans of DM..will probably like DM2 a lot. As intended, it was the record being worked on to follow up DM. A lot of the songs were re-recorded a few times for several subsequent projects. But this would seem to be the original recordings of those tracks. DM2 is most "classic" RG thats been released. You can hear the style in places leaning to the later NOTORIOUS project

The ROCK CANDY reissue has the BFTA version of Dream Warriors and the song BFTA (b-side of the DW 45 single) as the bonus track. The original single version of DREAM WARRIORS was recorded before the BFTA record. It was a stand alone session, and although some of the team were the same as those on the BFTA sessions, the mix was not the same guys..Thompson and Barbireo (spelling?). They had to h

One of the most sarcastic and wittiest frontman ever. Class act, and amazing to see how he turned things around for himself and his band. The set list shake up was needed. People were starting to feel like they were seeing the same show year in year out.

…well, whilst I prefer the melodic rock Bible that is ULAK (for songs), arguably from a guitar stand point, BFTA is Lynch finest "Guitar" hour. He was smoking, his amps sounded like they were about combust and his "attack" and aggresive playing was at high point. It always LOVED this record. I bought the Japanese remaster from what? 2009..and that was awesome. So my surpris

Touring with Killerbee….. We are proud to announce that joining them on this tour is guitar player extraordinaire, Paul Tonka Chapman (UFO). -This is the band I talked to too my wife about a week ago! Before I knew about any of this. I need a band that's formed and (semi) organized, so I can become part of a rugby type team again! Camarderie! They fell out of the sky from Sweden into my c

Eat 'Em…was a killer record. A good as VAN HALEN era of the time. Skyscraper for me..too techinical / keyboardy / synth sounding at times. Bit some good songs. A Little Aint..was really good. Must revisit it. Loved the DLR record..brilliant and record many more casual fans still dont know about. Diamond Dave..not all that good. Your Filthy..hmmmm, its different, a few good tracks

Maybe there os something contractual that prevents the Lotzen material from being included. Ya never know. Seeing as Sheehan has a good working relationship with him, I doubt the band are "pretending" the era never existed.

I reserve proper judgement until I hear it all My only concern, is that hammer home that they wanted to make another COT Debut, that style and sound. Great..it was a good record, but its 2015 and the debut was a long time ago. I find that most of their peers that have incorporated some contemporary edge to the music, being in writing or production / mix..have faired way better than those repli

Tony sounds good..nearly always does. The song, for me…has not aged well. Its sounds very generic 80's pap hearing it back now. I hope their new music will be more a mix of old SR and new contemporary sounds.

It is all new, just completed with Oni, and Jeff Pilson on bass..but not touring. Cover is different. An angry disheveled male youth in his teens / war child clenching his fist. If the new record is anything along the lines of his last 3 years output..i'm already sold not having heard a note.

It's LIVE..warts and all! Great stuff. DLR is DLR, i'm under no illusions as to what i'm supposed to be getting. If you want pitch perfect soaring vocals…the you've plenty of other choices…crack on.

Ok, after all the flames have settled down from people burning up David Lee Roth’s vocals on Jimmy Kimmel, here’s my thoughts on the new ‘VAN HALEN: Live At The Tokyo Dome‘ CD. If you are a fan of truly “LIVE” albums as I am and have stated, this album rules! Just to hear Eddie’s guitar tones on “Romeo’s Delight“, “Beautiful Girls“, “Women in Love” alone is worth th

I like the record per se…the tracks sound great, but the guitar solo's sound AWFUL! He's using, for his solo's…a channel on the amp that has less gain, and is cleaner sounding. Couple with that he appears to be using the neck pick up, the tone is more "bell"…crisp and clean like that of a Strat. He's also playing more "free form"..almost like Free Jazz musicians do, w

Nothing wrong with that TV performance. It was ONE song, the band were cold…most bands / singers take a song or two to get into it etc. DLR is DLR. I'm just bored sick of anytime there's VH thread, ditto DLR or Hagar…it always turns into the tired old DLR Vs Hagar crap..who's better, who's worse…ZZZZZzzzzzz.

You just gotta love all these reliable sources close to the band…theres no record, new or live. There's no band. They don't speak. They are not touring. There is NO Van Halen activity at all for the foreseeable. Nothing is happening ..and BAM…album, remasters, TV appearances and a full US tour.

He did DURAN DURAN's last record ALL YOU NEED IS NOW, and is doing their mew one too. AYNIN is a brilliant record. Ronson is one of those producers / mixers that works with an artist and "knows" what is their best stuff and manages to bring that out of them now..with some contemporary edge.

I posted about this record a few weeks ago. I love the contemporary hard rock/metal meets melodic rock. JSS's vocals and layering of vocals gives it that familiarity many of loved with earlier bands / projects..TALISMAN, HUMANIMAL. If anything, the melodic elements stand out more amongst the riffing and more metal parts. I have all JSSs stuff..and place this up there with some of his best stuff.

Great band, two of my fave records of the last 10 years. The debut was maybe a little better than the follow up. The late 2013 EP I surrender, lived that main track. I wasn't aware that they had called it a day. Lasr year I heard on good authority they were talking to another guitarist (from the UK same era as Girl and other NWOBHM-ish bands) to come in and join Phil, to beef up the sound.

There was a time, YES…loved them. Pre YouTube, pre VHS video…all you had were shitty bootlegs, so getting a great live album was a great way to relive the gig that blew your socks off. Virtually all the live records from mid 70's say thru 90 were good and have that ""classic status as it's all we had.

Just two tracks didn't click for me..9 and 10 I think. The rest is awesome old school 80's early 90's with a fresh coat of paint. Not forced, contrived or sticking of record company "project".
