I agree. Maybe the fact that Van Halen went from a 'way out there' Showman like DLR who's voice was almost a sideline to everything else, to a Singer like Sammy Hagar. (and back again). In my opinion Van Halen with DLR either works (or worked) in the studio or if it's live you really have to be there to appreciate it. A live audio recording just highlights DLR's weaknesses and misses out o

I think it's mostly a great album and Vandenberg plays great guitar on it. Don't fade Away is a great tune but It is a curious choice for an album opener.. I'd say the tour wasn't that great though. Saw D.C. At Shepherd's Bush in 1997 and he spent a whole lot of time chatting and not vast amounts singing. He seemed a bit self-mocking back then. But the album.... Definitely impressive.

I'll keep my ears open for Gabbie Rae. Sounds promising.

I'd throw in another... Fergie. (The singer not Prince Andrew's Ex.) She has a very impressive voice, especially when she gets into Rock.

Sharon den Adel from Within Temptation is a great singer. Lzzy Hale from Halestorm is also a cracking singer. No doubt that Floor Jansen (Nightwish) seems to be able to sing just about anything. Ladies of great presence and great voice. No disrespect to Issa but I've heard nothing from her yet that is anything other than entirely generic and could be sung by one of about a million other f

A great interview. A very interesting guy when he's sober (as he appears to be in this video)

Curious decision. DLR excels with his showmanship and stage persona, not his recorded vocals. An unedited audio recording does seem a bit odd. Not exactly playing to their strengths..

Well it was more than a close relative. A touch more than just 'inspiration' from Tom Petty's song.

Ahh good stuff.. Thanks mate.. I'd certainly not want SOTT to lose all its uniqueness but the original did seem a little light at the bottom so to speak.

Horses for courses. David Coverdale being far more a Baritone who could scream and Ian Gillan being a Tenor who could hit the high notes clean. (In my opinion) I've always thought Coverdale had a much thicker / soulful very low area to his range..

Deep Purple - Burn. (But done as Coverdale would have liked) Whitesnake - Slip of the Tongue - With the sound thickened up a bit.

An inspiring interview. Fair play to Chris Robinson for being very honest and candid about his struggles. Sounds a very honest and humble fella!

I'm hoping for a strong album. As others have said, at least since Shooting at the Sun, albums have been hit n miss. Personally I find the issue is that Luke Morley is pretty much THE songwriter (from memory) and he's got stale with ideas. There's only so many times you need to sing about leaving this town before it's too late etc etc etc. I feel they need some diversity in their song-wri

See my point? Certainly a charismatic guy!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJjesuecY1A Now with Luke Purdie.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iNpWWzOTcyg Horses for course but Rundell was the singer to lead them to bigger things in my opinion...

Yeah I was just listening back to 'First hit for Free' and it's still a great album. Their Donington performance of the same era with Rundell in his 'two-face' look, was pretty impressive too. A hugely missed opportunity I think.

Now it's been six years since 'First hit for Free' with Henry Rundell on vocals and we've now have a couple of releases with Luke Purdie and I thought I'd have a little reflect. I'm sure there are fans of both camps but I still think the band lost a major cog on their success bicycle. Rundell had a very distinctive voice, a big range and serious stage presence.. I still feel the band h

I think it's far better than many give it credit for.. Some great tracks that deserve a strong band to perform them live..

Personally I think Pink Floyd's The Wall tops them all but Operation Mindcrime is a great album. It's rare because all the main tracks could stand up as a great single as well as being a key part of an album. No filler! Back to good ol Geoff. I just don't feel he wants to rock that much. It seems it doesn't take much for him to drift off into Geoff Tate solo land which is a bit well not tha

All depends what he does with it. He seemed to 'rock things up a bit' to compete with Queensryche during the battle of the name but previous to that it seemed he wanted to go off on curious directions.. Will be interested what path he chooses to take.

I'd say a combination of being a naturally very good singer, singing well within his range/ability and not having a punishing touring schedule, seems to do the trick for Mr Bowes. I have to agree I can't remember the last time I heard him have an 'off day'

I wasn't too keen on Secret Society but Last Look at Eden has two or three tracks that get my attention. The trouble is when I hear songs like 'Government Man' etc with a fat sounding guitar riff, The new stuff rarely matches up. John Norum seems to have gone for a somewhat 'wooly' guitar sound on recent albums which doesn't really do it for me.. Anyway, I'll still be interested to he

From what I heard from Joey Tempest on stage, the idea was written back in Prisoners in Paradise days, with a hangover apparently. When his baby was born he put the lyrics together as 'New Love in Town'. So I guess musically it's PIP and lyrically it's modern day Europe.. Either way, it's a cracking track. One of their best..

Hi all, I've been listening to quite a lot of 'Europe' recently and I have to admit 'Prisoners in Paradise' is still a great album IMO. I'm surprised that (and I know he didn't play on it) John Norum doesn't like it. He doesn't seem to have the same level of disdain for 'Out of this World' which he also didn't play on. Listening back to back, as a whole album 'Prisoners' is heavier and has

It sounds like a Shania Twain copy.. I kinda like Shania Twain (in a pop way) but we don't need a clone..
