Part of the overall Formula ONe Grand Prix package... not a separate concert as such. As I will be there anyway, I'll stay for the gig. Hope you're fucking happy with my reply.

Totally agree. Review doesn't equal rating. Words should be sufficient to give the readers a feel about an album. If it really moved the reviewer beyond expectations, words should reflect this without the need of a rating. I personally never take ratings into consideration. And I do not read much reviews either! :-) At this stage of my life, I am reading reviews on artists I know only to see

Bravo!!!! The first part of the CD is Ok-ish, but the second part is really good. It indeed gain a lot of depth if you listen to it in its entirety. Not revolutionary but a good record for open minded fans of Queen.

Will see them here in Bahrain on Saturday. Don't like them but saw them twice live (1988, 2004). I cannot stand Klaus Meine's voice. And they are guilty of using every cliches in the book. Schenker irritates me. The only part that excites me is to see James Kottak again. Amazing rock drummer. This said, they are a great live band and always deliver. Just not a big fan of their music... probably w

Funny, Lukather is amongst my worst encounter. Full of himself and arrogant both times I met him. He seems to have changed since he's been off the booze though. GREAT: Neil Stubenhaus, Brandon Fields, JR RObinson, Neil Murray, David Garfield, Mike O'Neill, Oscar Seaton, Glenn Hughes, Doug Bossi, Alex Ligertwood, Mike Porcaro, Paul Jackson Jr., Lenny Castro, Larry Klimas, (VERY) FRIENDLY

If I had one ounce of talent I would have loved to be a session musician. I think this is THE shit if you are a music lover. Guys like you, or the LA A-list have / had the chance to play so many different styles. You don't care if you're known to the public because you're living the dream: you play different types of music almost every day, and get paid for it! Doesn't get any better than this :-

There is no contradiction to create for the love of art and music AND at the same time being paid what is due to you as a result of you creating for the love of art and music. It is a simple matter of not being ripped off. I am sure that as much as you like your job, you won't do it for free.

A while ago Danny mentioned that his new album was almost done. Haven't heard anything for a long time now. Does anyone has any news? Never met Danny but we kept in touch every now and then. Top guy and talented musician.

Just rediscovering CD/LP I already own is amazing! I tend to take a chance on CD I find in bargain bins of bands/musicians I know but never really got into. In average, I am seldom floored by the quality and understand why I did not pay attention the first time around. Youtube is a great way for me to select music. There are so many artists/bands that are hailed as "amazing" that

> Been there done that > Doesn't need the money > Probably cannot top what they already have done together > Too much baggage between him and Schon > Doesn't really want to tour Most of all, I think Perry would have no fun getting back together with Schon and Cain. I know he recorded a few things and has material in the can. Russ Miller did some sessions a few years ago.

The first three albums are great. III is a bit more difficult to get into. Pornografitti is fantastic. Love it! Killer album, no filler. The whole band is flawless. Raw energy and deep groove. It's an album I often dust off, and enjoy more and more.

LOL! And so true!!!! Worst live singer I have ever seen in my entire life.... and that include guys from local amateur bands. It always makes me laugh when people criticize Bieber, Spears and the likes but at the same time think Vince Neil is OK. They all belong to the same category: crap singers singing crap songs. In a lot of ways it is their look and the way they have been marketed that ma

I am not a fan of Bonamassa. I like his work but prefer that of other blues guys, starting with Walter Trout. This said, again, Doug is absolutely correct. Can anybody here remind me of signature songs from the many legendary MR/hard rock bands that seemed to have left a mark I totally missed on the scene, like White Sister, Valentine, Beau Nasty, Roxy Blue, Every Mother's Nightmare, Bangalore

Getting very excited to see Shy opening for Gary Moore in April 1987. We arrived at the venue in time only to realize Shy at started 30 minutes earlier than planned. I rushed to buy a t-shirt and made my way towards the first row.... only to hear Tony Mills thanking the crowd and saying goodbye! It pissed me off no end! Going to see Dream Theater with a friend in Zurich around 1998. We started

Tommy is definitively not a "studio" drummer. I heard it from some musicians, and read it often. Live, on the other hand, he's quite amazing. The problem with this type of drummer is how do you capture the live energy properly? They tend to sound a bit tamed in the studio. One guy that is great at both, and is a showman, is Kenny Aronoff. Regarding "Shot In The Dark", it i

Pierre, I find your comments rather out of line. If I follow your argument, and somewhat extrapolate, then no MR bands should be existing or recording anymore as there is NO audience left buying this type of music. AOR/MR died in 1989 in terms of audience. What about Motley Crue and other guys in their 50's still having a trendy hair cut and covered in tattoos trying to suck the last drop of m

I probably would not have bought it - yes I ordered the CD - if Neil wasn't on it. I still would think it is a good song.

Were they ever anything else that Led Zeppelin wannabe? Don't think so. Stone Fury was by far a more interesting project. Two good albums, albeit extremely different in style.
