Simon Phillips was almost too good for JP, more suited to Toto et al,a technical genius but still no one really got to groove like Jeff Porcaro. That said, he gave a really individual feel to that first MSG album where Cozy made the subsequent stuff feel like lead shoes.

Saw them at KK'S Steel Mill in Wolverhampton, absolutely storming gig, great set list and sound. Les Binks was awesome, very groovy. Could never understand why they hired Dave Holland back in '79...

I saw them at Brixton Academy around that time doing the Freight Train Heart set - Cain and Schon were playing with him. I remember the support was a NWOBHM called Chrome Molly.

Just can't stomach arenas these days unless the seating is close, which is usually impossible once the tout-bots have secured them and relisted them at exhorbitant mark ups. Did see the Foos at Reading this summer, got close in a central position. Have never heard an outside concert rig sound so sublime, plus Dave was...Dave :)

Going to Royal Albert Hall on Monday and Tuesday with a mate who is a superfan. I've never seen them, I did see Hogarth many many years ago in a band called The Europeans at a club, he played keyboards. Their one minor hit was 'American people', experimental but tuneful 80s pop, good chorus. https://youtu.be/MLOOxTjbHb4

Saw them in a tent at Reading this year by accident, had never heard of them. They rocked 'live', a bit Lizzy in places with the guitars but they were good.

Have to say a cracking gig at KK's Steel Mill last night. Downing with Unleashed drummer Les Binks, Tim 'Ripper' Owens and Dave Ellefson played an off the cuff classic Priest set including many from Unleashed In The East Set list: Riding on the Wind The Green Manalishi Hell Is Home Running Wild Beyond the Realms of Death Exciter Metal Gods Burn in Hell Before the Dawn Between the Ha

I don't really see the comparison to be honest. Singer sounds like Steve Overland and the music could be anyone from the era.

Very fortuitous/lucky the day they got involved with Mutt Lange. The real talent behind Def Leppard.

No. Trump is NOT doing an 'amazing job'. He is a complete arse. He is making the US a laughing stock.

When you see a real players band up there you realise how shockingly amateur so many bands are that play Glasto. Good to see great players and singers.

As has been said many times, the outstanding vocal talent, particularly for his years is Glenn Hughes, bar none. Nominees need to be 65+ to be an 'Old Age Pensioner', anything under that is not OAP.

Hmm. First CD defintely the better album IMHO. The first 4 tracks are way better than anything on Backlash alone.

Hardwired. You are completely wrong. They couldn't be less 'right wing'. They are a great band with a great back catalogue, one of the best live shows I've ever seen and I have seen many bands over the last 40 years of gigs. ALL bands use fly-in recordings, very few do their own BVs these days, Leppard amongst many, have been 'augmented' for years - are you going to moan about them too? Pity a

I'm not sure Bon Jovi wouldn't have made it anywhere near as big without Child's Midas touch on the hits. The first BJ album had Runaway and...that was about it, 7800 Farenheit was pretty ropey to be fair. The Childs-penned songs on Slippery were the reason all the pretty boy videos worked - because the songs were monster. They do 'owe their career' in many ways to the Childs collaboration.

Great album generally. Admittedly a couple of songs that could be construed as fillers, but a worthy follow up to BS - they also definitely had their sights on the US market. ANy album containing 'Heading out to the Highway' can't really be dismissed IMO. Always recall them on that tour at at Leicester DeMontfort Hall opening up with Solar Angels with Tipton & Downing appearing on hydraulic r
