Too many songs. Too many bad songs. Too many songs written by somebody else. Very disappointed when it came out.

Winger - as much as I like the band - was largely a 3rd tier act. You had Motley crue, Def Leppard, Van Halen and Bon Jovi as 1st tier acts. 2nd tier were probably Poison, Ratt, Cinderella, and a few others. All of these sold far better than Winger and had bigger hits. Third tier acts like Winger - and I would probably include Dokken and White Lion among them - will have the more fickle fans.

Great comment - "Slip of the Tongue" was one of the worst offenders of late 80's corporate cheese.

Coincidence. If Winger was churning out great songs nobody would have cared. I mean, just look at Nickleback - everyone makes fun of them, but they still deliver. The problem was most of the hair bands did not, and most of the genre was coated in mediocrity. All the bands sold out their credibility - just look at about any 81-83 hair metal release and compare it to their 88-90 counterparts. The f

Hair metal got incredibly stale by the late 80s. That was 100% independent of B&B. In fact, B&B were about two years late to the party. Reach for the Sky, Detonator (Ratt); In the Heart of the Young (Winger); Adrenalize (Def Leppard), et al. Those records were MAJOR let downs for the average record buyer, particularly Adrenalize - from the flagship pop metal band. And you could name do

Their most consistent/best records: Creatures, Sonic Boom, and Monster. The rest of their output had great songs, but too inconsistent.

Captain is conveniently defining away the label. That is, presupposing bubblegum pop can't have some lyrical depth. This disussion likely won't go anywhere without a consesus definition of "bubblegum," "pop," and "depth." With that said: -writing about a marital breakup isn't necessarily "deep." Feelings or emotions over a "boy" can be equal

Press doesn't pick up message board threads but official website news. This is a normal means of getting the news out of their tour. Sounds like a perfectly normal, reasonable thing to do with their website. I agree about Night Ranger - they are trying to re-re-brand themselves (from pop rock to hard rock/metal/twin leads) and this is a perfect opportunity.

Is this Slaughter, with Dana and co., or Mark and some sessionals? I liked Slaughter's last couple albums.

Kiss is the bigger draw stateside, and possibly internationally. In 2011 Def Leppard/Heart averaged 8.3k per show. In 2010 Kiss did about twice that with Bad City opening. In 2013 Kiss did about 17k per show with Shinedown opening.

Agree. The reason he gets work is because he is great at fostering good performances and a live feel. But sound is unnecessarily muddy. Compare Maiden's output sonically with those with Martin Birch. Tragic.

The record is one of the best I've heard in years - I highly recommend it. The single is probably one of the weaker tracks, actually.

Picked it up for $1 at a flea market but I got rid of it - that's quite an indictment. Way too long. In fact, all Tesla's records are about 15 minutes too long. I do like "Into the Now," though.

RNRHOF is about profits, not music - it contributes nothing to the integrity, legacy or history of rock music. All four original Kiss members are bickering like just about every other rock band that's ever been successful. Complete non-story.

Not really. It's one guys vision for what should be in his building. He can put in who he wants and who he thinks will make him the most money.

Def Leppard is the epitome of pop metal. Their early albums were NWOBHM. It's that simple.

Seattle had decent pressure, but I have never seen a team tackle so viciously, so quickly on each and every play. Short passes that Welker would normally take for 15 yards - he was hit by two, sometimes three people for just 2 or 3 yards. Denver "racked" up yards but paid for each and every one of them. A crazy fast defense. I also loved how Seattle played aggressively on offense

We all have demons. Demons are especially hard to deal with once we've "had it all." All the money, stuff and fame in the world doesn't satisfy.
