Depends on the band. Def Leppard have used flown in backing tracks including some drums, guitars, all bv's and sometimes Joe's lead vocals since the late 80s. The problem with how DL recordings sounded (due to Lange), they would never achieve that live even if they had 5 great singers in the band. In fairness none of them are great singers, whereas the current Foreigner lineup have excellent sing

Utter nonsense. He's still one of rock's premier league vocalists with his own inimitable soul feel. Pisses all over just about every other 'name' singer you care to mention. Hits the notes too, no Coverdale there.

I'd agree, I listened to a copy, it's the Empire sound totally. Love it.

Captain Can Man. Get off your high and misguided horse. People die for all sorts of reasons. Whilst a great actor, his drug abuse issues were well known over the years and caught him out in the end. If you stick your fingers in your ears it does not mean it didn't happen. Bellend.

Just got hold of the Torre album. Very impressed. Yes, its a sort of Empire-era soundalike, but hey, thats what I want!

Apparently long term cocaine abuse which didn't help his cardiovascular disease, which in turn brought on a huge heart attack last night. Such a shame, great actor and leaves a 9 month old child.

If you last saw them in 86, prepare to be majorly disappointed...

Quite underwhelmed to be honest, well past their best, JBJ just whines too much now. Great band in their day.

Oh the irony...Mike Slamer was responsible for the guitar amp/sound setup on Pyromania and Hysteria amongst others. As you will know, Mutt Lange developed all he knows producing City Boy's albums in the 1970s and then unleashed all that recordning knowledge and experience on a very lucky and average Def Leppard. The rets is history. They have no decent ideas these days...

I align The Big Prize firmly with Bruce Fairbairn. Some great songs hooked up to (probably) the greatest rock producer that ever lived. HMS caught him at exactly the right time, just before he went stellar with BJ abd Aero. Planets all lined up with that album... In fairness, they never eclipsed The Big Prize; Ted Templeman tried to make 'Racing...' sound like Van Halen's debut, I recall getti

Sad to say we split a while ago. Having put heart and soul into Global Warning, even with universally glowing reviews it received, it was nigh on impossible to convert that to the sales it perhaps deserved. Added to the fact that none of us were getting any younger and had the usual family responsibilities we decided to call it a day. Illegal downloads of it were difficult to overcome also. Firef

Yes, Eddie Jackson not only plays great basslines but achieved with Peter Collins production probably the best growly rock bass sound recorded on Mindcrime. Chris Squire from Yes was always quite inventive.

What is the fuss about him? He was a master of cheese back in the 80s, these clips are just embarrassing....

Can't get past the ridiculous voice, makes me want to clear my throat. Shame as the songs are ok. Still I must be wrong as they are massive!

Yes wish he would find a way of getting over here to play. 63...is that really lucky genes or good surgery over the years?

Saw him at Nottingham last night. Very, very impressive, setlist was for the most part excellent, plenty of pre-91 stuff and obviously plenty off WUTN. The band are so groovy, BA, Keith Scott and Micky Curry are sublime, Curry makes the machine feel of the Lange-breathed-on tracks really rock as they ought to. At 52 his vocals are as good, if not better than 25 years ago - truly inspired. My o

Great voice no doubt...however, there lies the problem. I just get the feeling she won't be able to sustain performing live over the coming years. In a studio, line-by-line, yep no problem, run it to 2 hours a night, every other night in some cases (and I sadly suspect Adele to be the case) and her voice just won't hold up. Hope I'm wrong.

I agree, with Pierce particularly. Always remember in 83 hearing the first play of Living in Oz and being blown away by his playing. He's been all over so much stuff that we're mostly unaware of but him and Luke are brilliant because they are able to be session players but sound like they mean it?

No support to mess up the sound - cannot wait for this! Nottingham on Tuesday, all the best material, if he's doing a 2.15hr set then it should be rammed full of his finest stuff, and with his full 5 piece band. Micky Curry and the awesome (and highly underrated) Keith Scott. They might even do some from Into The Fire, my fave album....

Thats the whole problem - the Darkness rhythm section and guitar player can make a nice sound with good riffs. It's Justin bloody Hawkins, the vocals are just plain shite, even embarrassing. It's him that forever condemns them to being a novelty act.

Yes, they definitely appeared at just the right time, shame it made rock music look even more irrelevant to the nay sayers. Well, off to see Bill Bailey later, should provide a light-hearted musical diversion.

Justin Hawkins...one of the luckiest men on the planet. How that silly voice and catsuit ever go so far up the greasy music pole, I'll never know. It was funny, just the once and only once.

Seen Mr Adams many a time since 86. Best was in Manchester when he toured Into The Fire, great songs and live sound - the album still sounds huge too. I love his band, Keith Scott very underrated guitarist, Micky Curry, superb drummer. Going to see him in Nottingham in November - he'll basically play loads of pre 91 stuff which can only be brilliant...
