Always sounded great live to me. I never take You Tube footage that seriously in terms of sound because the audio is mostly shite. Been to gigs that have been brilliant sound wise and then saw You Tube footage next day and thought..WTF?!!

From the classicrockrevisted website: Ace Frehley To Perform at Rock Hall Induction www.hennemusic.com While Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of KISS have refused to perform at their induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame tonight (April 10), guitarist Ace Frehley has confirmed that he will play the AC/DC classic "Highway To Hell" as part of the event's signature All-Star

Met the Thunder boys after a Glasgow gig...all nice fellas..particularly Ben Matthews Ricky Medlocke is a gentleman too Also Remember meeting Billy Squier in Edinburgh (1981 I think) while he was supporting Whitesnake.....lovely guy..very pleasant but struggled with the Scottish Brogue!..One funny thing from that meeting...I was a young..what we called "nuggets" ..ie naive young

The thing that really irritated me about that release was the title.."Promise Land".....They obviously meant to call it "Promised Land" but somewhere along the way someone fucked up big time..and then the pretence started that no..."Promise" land WAS what it was meant to be called. And hence a stupid album title was born. The album itself....pleasant enough bu

Be interesting to see the size of venue for this type of tour Terry? I think the long term appeal/support of DC in the UK would ensure a really good turnout..maybe the likes of the O2 bigger venues?... Either way let's hope it happens as I know he's touted the idea seriously for a couple of years now

I like the new version of Sailing Ships..and to me..his voice sounds fine..still pretty rich in tone and a nice version of the song. Yeah..he doesn't sound like he did 20 years ago..but still outclasses the majority of singers out there (give or take a few exeptions). Think an un-plugged tour..maybe with Doug Aldrich & Bernie Marsden would be a great idea....

Just a superb band.....Have seen them over a dozen times and Danny Bowes remains THE premier vocalist...ALWAYS hits the notes..and still as good a singer now in his middle aged years. They should have been HUGE...signed by John Kalodner in the States on the recommendation of Coverdale..and then Grunge hit as they were hitting the first stages of an American release/tour..Killed most establish

Does anyone have any idea what the individual total sales to date are for each of the Whitesnake albums..right from 'Trouble' through to the last one 'Forevermore', and also include DC's solo albums. All I can seem to find info on is the 1987 album which states appx 10 million ( appx), but would be very interested to see how the others have done (I realise Forevermore may be difficult as they

Exactly Andrew...Could have been so much better. & Rattman....I know Moody/Marsden were really close at one point..and though nothings been mentioned in the press..I kinda feel that they maybe don't see much of each other these days (maybe I'm completely off base about that..) I thought the bridges comment related more to Bernie & him directly as it pertained directly to the Moody/M

One interesting comment from Bernie in the latest Classic Rock magazine..when asked whether there was a chance of the Moody/Marsden BAND Re-uniting his answer was "That bridge has been ripped down..There's more chance of me & David doing something" Sounds as if there's maybe been a "distancing" between the two recently which is a shame Having said that I know DC

For me..the production was terrible....Hated the guitar sound..and the songs deserved better..I've always been of the opinion that if had been mixed with the depth of the 1987 album it would have sounded WAY better. As has been commented..it remains the one WS album I just can't listen to..and I'm a huge fan If Vandenberg had been healthy enough to have played on the album I think it may have c

Forevermore's a splendid album. Think DC has said him & Doug will DEFO write another album..but likely to take the best part of a year. He's also said that he's very intersted in doing something in an accoustic setting..and that would be a brilliant idea as stripped down..his voice remains one of the richest and finest there is (even if he struggles with the higher stuff live..but hey tho

Thought Whitesnake were brilliant last year..and DC sung great! Only band Ive ever walked out of was Motley Crue in Glasgow (with Killing Joke supporting)..The worst sound Ive EVER heard at a gig..So fucking loud (and not in a good way) I thought my ears were gonna bleed!!

Must admit to being really dissapointed with the actual album (after a lot of hype).....I love Chris Ouseys voice..MARVELOUS Aor singer but it just seems an ill fit with the type of blues/rock numbers on the album itself...and to be honest wasn't impressed with the songs bar one or two exceptions. Having said that from what you say it sounds like the songs take on a new life live..and will defo

Ok..So recently got this live album..and it's ok..BUT....to me just doesn't rock out much.. Now I know that REO were always straying into the "poppier" side of things on record, but their early stuff had a bit of balls to it..and live I had always been led to believe they kicked it up a notch..but for me I'm just not hearing it Maybe the vocals don't have enough of an edge for me.

Was MUCH better when he went down the "Coverdale" sounding route when playing with Marsden /Moody in the Snakes...Shows how good he could be with good songs. Sadly moved from sounding like Coverdale..to then sounding like Dio...with the songs in the latter style being very one dimensional. However..the guy has an INCREDIBLE talent...and should get back to the early vocal sound...a

DCD....Caught that gig with FM in Manchester.... You guys were on fire...Superb night! The sad thing is that unless bands hit mega..it's gonna be difficult to earn enough from the music side to pay the regular bills..I remember seeing a program here in the UK a few years back about Rose Tattoo and Angry Anderson was (then) working on the side as a Plumber to earns some extra bucks....

Sorry..but it pisses me off royally that the "decent" seats will be up to £ 125 for Glasgow..As much as I'd love to see them that's an outrage....and there's NO need for it..People will say it's the Promoters (as in the case recently of ridiculous prices for John Mellencamp)..but the band are at fault here as well..... So 2 tickets for me and the Mrs could cost £ 250..I can think of

You tube clips are mostly SHIT for MOST bands...Never a true reflection of gigs..Ive been to gigs that have sounded amazing there..then seen You Tube clips a couple of days later and they sound terrible. Like all bands out there..Whitesnake & DC sounds good in some and not so good in others.....but anytime Ive seen him live recently he's been very good....Some of the criticism is way over th

Coverdale was great in Glasgow earlier in the year...and as Ive said before Ive criticised him before when he's been less so. Strangely if you look at Soldier of Fortune and Burn from the same Brazil gig he sounds fine. Being a singer myself..there's no doubt he sounds flat on Is this Love..but he's normally never any problems with the lower register. I have a feeling that there may have been

Yup..For me to..it's about the level of guitars.....If an act is more guitar orientated..and the songs have a "heavier" feel to them then I would tend to class them as 'rock' (obviously they're may be some exceptions in certain songs within their catalouge....but in general. Anything that falls outwith this I would class a pop

Couldn't disagree more with some of these comments. I thought the other albums...albeit with some good moments..sounded pretty samey..and the songs tended to run into each other. This one ..to my ears sounds better..much more "colour" happening in/between songs..and I think the production is the best Ive heard yet from them in terms of separation of instrumentation and vocals. I jus
