saw them last year at Rock City. Absolutely brilliant, they did the Kings stuff and it sounded superb, very 70s DP groove. Better than anything from the 80s. They finished with Final Countdown for a laugh. Go see them.

Look at all of the hoo-haa around Steve Augeri when his throat was bad and he effecively mimed. I saw them very close up at Milton Keynes (2005?) and those lead vocals were too perfect and he had the big foam cover on the mic so you could't see his lips. You have to question these things often. For example, I have seen Glenn Hughes numerous times, particularly in small venues like The Rescue Room

Maybe Leppards sound engineer had too much to do on the night. Not only had to mix the band but make sure all of the additional audio 'help' was queued up and ready to go. I watched very closely at Nottingham (as I did at Donington 2009) and at times there was only Savage anywhere near a microphone and yet multi layered harmony choruses miraculously emitted from the front of house PA. Leppard hav

Everyone seems so sure of getting a ticket...? That'll be after Ticketmaster and the like have spirited them all away at 10.01am to Getmein and other reseller sites and they will miraculously be £500 a shot...I'll guarantee lots of pissed off fans by 10.05 on friday

Saw BA at Birmingham last year doing Reckless. Totally age defying. Voice is a good as ever and yes Keith Scott, totally undrerated. Brilliant feel.

Hughes can still sing pretty much as he did 40 years ago. Coverdale can't, end of.

Yes they were amazing - Luke got pissed off as he made a mess of the end of Rosannah...unlike him or any of them...greatest I've seen them though.

Quite possibly a perfect album. Way ahead of its time with great hooks, stunning guitar work (Tim Pierce where are you now?) and RS looked the part. I had remembered RS from various teen mags when I was a kid and had nearly dismissed him until I chanced to watch a kids afternoon TV programme and there he was doing Human Touch. Got me hook, line and sinker, I bought the album and was so please whe

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ed_Sheeran I really DO NOT get it with this guy. The rap single he has out is just plain embarrassing. Almost 6th form. Someone somewhere loves this ginger R2D2

Saw him last night at the NEC. About the 7th time I've seen him but it was a brilliant show IMO. That voice is still awesome. Great band with Keith and Micky particularly. And what a back catalogue, the acoustic bit at the end really worked, his voice fills an arena. And a good bloke, I think.

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.

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.
