I think this pretty much explains it as a done deal. Especially with the link to Queensryche (with Todd). No great surprise but will be good to see the back of this story, for all involved.

I found Euphoria a slightly frustrating album on a number of levels. Slang was a classy affair (if a touch too focussed on slow-paced tracks) but Euphoria always felt to me like a bit of a cop-out and trying to revert to 'formula' There are some very good songs on Euphoria (all pretty much already mentioned) but it just has an overall feel slightly of desperation to appease an audience that

I always thought Nightwish albums were effectively Tuomas Holopainen albums anyway. Is this not just him choosing a different style for this album?

I didn't think it was bad. I have to say I was pleased 'Thunder - Love Walked In' got a mention. Rarely does any mainstream press ever acknowledge their existence..

I have a lot of respect for Billy Joel. He strikes me as a very genuine musician and a great performer.

Ahh this is where I disagree. I hated all his continual chat during the 'Restless Heart' tour. I just like a little on stage banter and lots of songs..

I think the 'big stage' is still mostly with the '1987' esque era music and I guess if D.C decides to soften the show, then the audiences and venues may shrink. I remember when he toured 'Restless Heart' and the shows were certainly more 'intimate' than when the show rocked up again in 2003 onwards. I have to admit I'd quite like to hear a bit of a mellower set and see what he can do with it.

Personally I quite like the harshness (character) in his voice, even now. And to be honest, listening to tracks like 'Take me for a little while' from Coverdale and Page, he's had that in his voice (particularly around the cross-over area) for many years.

AOR, Melodic Rock, Classic Rock, Stadium Rock etc etc etc shot itself in the foot when success became more important than the music. (Which is the same with just about everything). Loads of bands jumped on the 'gravy-train' (or those behind them did) and created generic 'music by numbers' to a audience that was willing to lap it up for a time. Grunge has had its moments. Nirvana isn't reall

I have to be honest, I tire of the whole Perry / Journey thing. None of them are spring chickens and all this 'smoke n mirrors' but ultimately leading to nothing, is a waste of air and airplay. All very talented guys but life really is far too short to be faffing about with this nonsense..

I agree. I'm a big fan of the 'dogs but this really annoys me... I bought the album as fast as I could and have recommended others do the same but I'm not shelling out for the same album again just so I can have the bonus CD..

Milennium was excellent... Though if I ever hear 'Love is like Oxygen' (off the greatest hits album) again, It will be way way too soon. :)

Now it's not my place to 'bash' the guy but I do find Jorn Lande a bit of a disappointment. He's got a pretty mighty voice and back in the early days he showed great promise doing the 'snakes' and albums like 'Worldchanger' did offer hope. However, he seems to have descended into a never ending road of 'chug chug' metal, and dare I say a near caricature of himself. I do think that if he wo

It's a curious one but Sixx's side project Sixx AM has become very popular and I'd guess there is a fair degree less hassle going out on tour with James Michael and D.J. Ashba rather than Vince Neil and Tommy Lee. I'd also guess that even after the 'farewell', not unlike Thunder, they can always do a 'surprise' re-union whenever they feel like it.

For me as a whole, it's a fairly sterile and weak record. 1 brilliant track, 2 or so great tracks, the rest... Not great. That said, I'm not your standard Def Lep fan (though they were my favourite for a good few years), since I prefer 'On Through the Night' to High n Dry and I like 'Slang' quite a bit.

I'm no expert on the Vandenberg back catalog but I for one really liked his work with Whitesnake and particularly (and maybe not that popular here) his work on Restless Heart and Starkers in Tokyo. I'm quite excited to see the results of this.. :)

I think it's quite a catchy track for what it is. Pop. It sounds well produced (as it should) for a pop track. I don't think Mutt Lange should be criticised for it. He's a stellar producer and not everything he does needs to sound like Def Leppard's Hysteria. (Tongue in cheek) However it sounds all production and appears to have zero rock edge so it's not got lasting appeal for me.

Absolutely.. I've seen Whitesnake a few times and the worst was 1997 purely due to the fact he kept chatting away and not singing many songs. A very frustrating gig but when the songs came, I really enjoyed them. The times I've seen Whitesnake since, have been great gigs. OK I would happily trade the solo spots for a couple more songs, but hey D.C deserves a rest, but the gigs have always

A great find. Good to see a soundcheck. Shows just how good these guys were (are) as performers. Interestingly I lost interest in Journey a short time after this period.

They are a guilty pleasure of mine. The lyrics, even as a parody, aren't to everyone's taste but the fact remains that they are excellent musicians, Ralph Saenz has a great voice and they write very good songs. They are also a whole lot of fun. It's no shock why they're so popular. High octane (and fun laden) rock n roll.

I liked 'Live in Berlin' Think the performances were all pretty good to be honest. A million miles from Fleetwood/Fox experience.
