I really like 'Poison Apples' from their self-titled album with John Corabi on vocals.. So that wouldn't go be on my list..

I think is a great performance.. Axl sounds on top raspy form and it really works.. Proof for me is if it sounds pretty decent on a non-pro Youtube recording then I can be confident being there was really good.

Me too! His raspy vocals did the songs a great service.. Fair play to Axl on this gig...

I agree... Personally, I think 'legacies' etc are a load of nonsense.. The only time an Artist should retire is when they don't want to do it anymore.. Nothing I've heard released from Coverdale has ever been horrible and I always look forward to hearing what he's coming up with next.

We'll agree to disagree. I've only had one bad gig with D.C and that was his 1997 'farewell' tour at Shepherds Bush. Lots of talking, not enough singing. Since then I've always come away from a Whitesnake gig thoroughly satisfied.

Hard to say.. It's an interesting time in his life. He's certainly getting old, which wasn't really a factor in previous Whitesnake 'retirements', so previously he did seem to go off Whitesnake for a while and then hey presto, Whitesnake was back with a new line-up. But it is different now due to age. His 'Starkers In Tokyo' was excellent but I don't know if unplugged 'intimate' gigs are his t

Will be an interesting one.. I really liked 'Blackbird' and a large part of 'ABIII' but 'Fortress' I struggled with bar about 3 or 4 tracks.. Perhaps too continually bombastic for me. Not as much shade as previous albums. This could be an interesting one..

That's not what I meant.. I agree he loves a screech and a wail but he has an amazing voice that he CAN control if he wants to. What he chooses to do with it a fair bit of the time, I think we're probably agreed on.

He's certainly still got some serious control in his voice.. A true gift he's been given there...

Well he seems to have been successful in getting on with life post-Queensryche and I saw recently he'd teamed up with his daughter for some music, and was looking very well. I guess the whirlwind and pressures back in the late 80's early 90's was a heavy ol burden at the time..

Let's bear in mind this was quarter of a century ago. DeGarmo seems to have taken a sensible step (for him) in walking away from what was bringing him down.. How many music (and other) stars either end up hooked on drugs, booze or take their own lives? Queensryche isn't the juggernaut that it was back then but I see why he's seldom got back involved with the band..

A very brief interview but if ever we needed answers why DeGarmo left Queensryche, this really shows how tough he was finding things back then. Apologies if it's been posted before. http://teamrock.com/feature/2014-09-04/queensryche-the-dark-empire

Looks like a great gig.. My only gripe is I'm sure ol Coverdale could tone down the swearing a bit in his advancing years.. :)

Will be interesting. Tate does have moments where very good tracks appear. 'Cold' from the unfortunately titled 'Frequency Unknown' is a good track.

I don't think I've listened to the TFT in its entirity in one go. That probably speaks volumes. OOTW I think the tracks they have played live have been great. Personally, I think Europe are a great band, even if I'm a bit glum generally over their post 2003 releases. My biggest gripe is why more PiP songs don't get played and 'More Than Meets The Eye' isn't a regular on the live set-list

Tricky one isn't it? However I would say that 'Prisoners In Paradise' was a great step in the right direction. Fairly heavy but still melodic and very catchy chorus's.. 'Out of This World' album works really well live I think.. 'Superstitious', and 'More than Meets the eye' being notable tracks.. I think what frustrates me is that some of Pre 'OOTW' was too keyboardy-sweet for me but ironi

I agree. Thunder may not have a 'Rolling Stones' esque size of following but they have a very broad appeal in my opinion

Nope, I think they will happen.. Thunder (I think) have sufficient draw to make the dates profitable for all involved.. Travel hopefully. :)

Good point.. Someone in the medical world once that rarely do you get a 'free lunch' if you abuse your body to the extreme, even if it catches up with you later. I think of James Hunt the racing driver. Loved his drinking and 'recreational powders' and smoking etc. Cleaned up his act, used to cycle everywhere etc and sadly died of a heart attack in his 40's. Not unlike Motley Crue (with

Perhaps being a bit sweeping here but Re-Recordings seem (in the case of Def Leppard particularly) done for commercial reasons and in the case of 'Hysteria' sound close but not close enough. When an album is brilliant, it doesn't take much to take away those last few percent that make all the difference.. In Def Leppard's case I avoid the Re-Recording as much as possible.

Just checking out 'Adler''s album now.. Sounds pretty good so far to these ears..

Audio wise the first 40 seconds are very promising but it descends rapidly into something very ordinary.. I don't get these videos. There seem to be a lot of these that follow the same 'band in a room' blank / semi-blank backdrop and and a cheesy kinda sub-plot. Very 'off the shelf' horrible. Will be interesting to hear what some more of the album is like.

Great to see him on stage with GnR. Who would have thought Slash, McKagan, Adler and Rose would share a stage again, 5 years ago?

I'm with you.. Compared to some artist pages, his certainly comes across as trying a bit too hard to self promote.. That's a lot of endorsements and one heck of a song list under 'work'
