Not for the price of tickets it's not....I'm with Lutty on this....PR's has had a reputation for YEARS of playing really short sets....He may be a great vocalist, but the prices they were asking for a set that short were ridiculous. Would love to have went to Glasgow show but not for that money.

Yes..They missed a trick with JSS..Saw him with the band in Glasgow, and the energy (and vocal ability) he brought to the band was terrific... .I remember thinking when I left the gig how good a move it was bringing him into the fold.... Just shows you.. But to any fan of the band, and musician out there, we all know you were an important part of the Journey history books Jeff... As regards

It's strange..Even if you google SH...There's very little info on line about him nowadays....He's WELL under the radar....Shame..as he was a great singer and would be great to hear some new material from him. But not very likely.

Wow..BMG...They need a a better vocalist than DV?!..Seriously?? Quite stunned by that comment to be honest, as Dannys a stunning singer,but each to their own. And for what it's worth, I'm loving the new album..Great songs, production, and playing.... (Yes even the vocals!...)

If memory serves me right..Didn't Jools Holland play on a Terraplane album?.......Or have some link to the band, before they changed the name to Thunder? If so, it makes it even more unforgivable that he's never had the Thunder lads on. His show has ignored Rock for years, and having Blackberry Smoke on one time is NOT going to change this....He's a total condescending prick about Rock band

Its hardly "Gullible" people that go to see him....I'm a singer myself and can judge reasonably well how good, or how bad he is live.... When he's on the ball he's fine, but like others, particularly that age, can have off nights. And from most of the report again on the current tour, haven't seen too many negative reviews. I would agree however that he sounds better in the low

Just wondering if there's any fans of SWITCHFOOT out there? I saw them live around 10 years ago supporting Journey during a trip Stateside..Had never heard of them....but they blew me away!..Amazing live band. Over the years I've bought everything they've done, and their new album 'Where the light shines through' is a cracking album..Heavy in parts, but melodic as hell! Not sure if they'

Coverdale has already stated recently there will be ONE more tour next year, in which the 1987 album, on it's 30th Anniversary, will be celebrated on stage. After that he suggested he will retire from touring, but still be involved in music in some manner. And to be honest, despite his critics in recent years, over the recent tour he's been sounding very good vocally indeed. (Fuck me, even

It's struck me recently that with all the modern apps, you tube..face book, twitter etc etc, that most gigs are practically posted, praised, criticised , practically instantly on line. Take for example recent comments about Ozzy, or Dave Lee Roth to name just a couple, but here's a thought for you. Back in the day when I started going to gigs (1980 Ready & Willing tour with Whitesnake o

Good luck to him.....Guys been a legend over the years and deserves to enjoy his retirement (while maybe writing some solo more bluesy albums or doing acoustic shows). He sounded great last year on the Purple tour, and I'm guessing he wants to say farewell properly with just a Whitesnake set. Regardless of what you think of his vocals nowadays, he remains possibly the finest front man I've

Both excellent..Both very different...My personal preference is Jorn, but that's more because I love the Coverdalesque Richness in his tone, and the more Classic Rock style material. But both these guys are World class imho.....

Over the last couple of years have really got into Avantasia. The new albums excellent, and yesterday received THE FLYING OPERA which I had to source from Germany-What an absolutely fantastic package-2 CD'S, 2 DVD'S, and the presentation is fabulous. In my view, Tobias Sammet must be one of the greatest modern songwriters of recent times-The guys a total genius!... SCARECROW for example is

DC's already said that himself and Joel Hoekstra have been working on some stuff..Whether that's been some additional acoustic style tracks for the forthcoming dvd of the Purple tour OR SOLELY PRE-IDEAS FOR ANEW ALBUM, I'm not sure. Also, reading between the lines have a feeling DC may be announcing that the 2016 tour (most still to be announced) will be his last as a big Rock performer before

Maybe I'm just showing my age, but I used to love the old original Donnington festivals...one day...6 top band....rather than todays 3 day bandfest with literally a hundred bands playing at various stages. My question is..if you could pick 6 bands( and 6 bands only) to play a one day festival today which bands would you pick? ( You can pick current bands, old bands back in the day maybe not pe

Haven't listened to the remaster to be honest as it's the only Whitesnake album I have serious issues with. First time round I HATED the production on the original..To me.it had no depth or richness (imo) and I just couldn't enjoy it...Having been a Whitesnake fan since the Ready & Willing tour...I enjoy all their albums..from the early bluesy style (which I prefer) right through to Foreve

22. Re: :(
To me, he needs to record an album in the style of early Whitesnake....When he sings in that Coverdaleesque tone ( eg House of Cards), he sounds amazing.Much prefer that style to the Dio style he's adopted last few solo albums. I remember when he played live with Moody/Marsden in THE SNAKES and he was excellent, and something like that song wise style would be far better, and have more variety

Addyeddy....It's 100% a vocal effect that was coming through on DC's vocals.....Seen this myself when gigging many times....I tried it once a few years ago..Pretty cool ( but only used it once)..He defo wasn't MIMING..I was a few feet away from him in Glasgow and could hear that it was totally live. Interesting comments about the sound for DL though..as these were the SAME problems they had in

Wow...Reading the reviews of Glasgow and shocked at some of the comments about Coverdale. I've criticised him in the past but in Glasgow he was on fire...To me and all the people who were with me , it was the best he's sounded since the early 80's. And that was the opinion on most other forums ( apart from this one it seems). And I'm also a singer so my first point at a gig is to focus on the

Enjoyable.....No doubt there will be the usual internet criticism but I still think the Purple albums pretty good. And with Old Cov sounding great on the live videos from the current tour, really looking forward to seeing them in Glasgow in a couple of weeks.

It's typical of how low sales need to be these days to make the charts in comparison to years gone by. However, the reason I believe that bands like Leppard and Whitesnake WILL continue to produce albums is that all the recording is done in their own home studios now..cutting the costs rights back..All they then need is a distribution deal, which they'll comfortably obtain ( and have done).
