Regarding Alice Cooper, he always strikes me as a true professional with great musicians and a great show. I was impressed when I saw him. Motley Crue, well as others have said, Vince Neil isn't the most dynamic of singers but Tommy Lee is a powerhouse of a drummer and their songs are generally very catchy. A Motley show is a Motley show as they say.

I know it's all subjective but once I've clocked what they're singing, it's hard to ignore the awkward lyrics.

Musically I don't think it has a bad feel to it on first reaction. My issue with previous Allen/Lande albums has been the lyrics.. 'Hammy' and full of cliché springs to mind.

I think 'New Jersey' is a great album and the band continued to deliver great stuff until and including 'These Days' After that things got a bit strange..

I'll be honest and this is coming from a very long time Def Leppard fan, I do find Phil a bit OTT these days.. Probably unfair but when Steve was still alive I felt they made a great partnership but in recent years I've lost a bit of warmth for the guy. However, the band still sounds a great unit even if its recorded output for the past 15 or more years has been pretty stodgy..

Sounds exciting.. Certainly very different from the likes of 'Lost in Translation' and Soul Sirkus etc and from the sound-clip it definitely sounds uncompromising which can only be a good thing. And without wanting to sound too 'fan boy', thanks for coming onto these forums and being prepared to debate your art. You're far less defensive that I would be about any of my work. :)

I agree.. Part of his argument to why he plays the bulk of the solos is because he wrote them and wants to keep authentic to the originals but he doesn't 'honour his own contract' and goes into the 'noddle-zone' far too often. Viv in Def Leppard is like a Concert Pianist who has been given a Casio keyboard and told to only play one note at a time.

Doubt it. Thunder seems to have become more active than expected and his other 'The Union' gig is still alive. Also, dare I say I'm not sure he's enough of a technical player for all the 80's Whitesnake malarkey...

I agree. Proof is in the pudding. I can still listen to most of the tracks on the previous album, regularly.

Yep.. Keep it live!! I have no issue with 'piped-in' effects like the start of Def Leppard -Rocket etc but technology is far to easy to abuse and enhance live performances and quite frankly, it's lazy! Great live performances take great preparation and I don't want to be short changed because it's easier to pipe in perfect backing vocals etc.

In all fairness to Lou Gramm, he's done far far better performances than that one since. Also I do take a little exception to people suggesting an artist should 'give it up'. He's an artist and there are still many folk who appreciate his performances. What else should he do??? Work in a shop?

He does seem a sensitive wee soul regarding his performances but hopefully this little appearance has 'wet his whistle' to get back out there before he needs a zimmer frame.

With all due respect, the minute Steve Perry starts to sing, there will obviously be comments about him 'returning' to Journey etc. It's only natural and it doesn't bother me in the slightest. My only gripe is where after over 20 years off the stage, the default position for some is to sweepingly run down his performance. Trying to put myself in Steve Perry's shoes for a second, unless he

Exactly. He would never sign and as such I don't think it would work with Schon's business model. You say that the fans are realistic.. Maybe they are, maybe they aren't. However never underestimate the ego of a musician and personally, I think Schon likes things just the way they are..

Briefly a Journey reunion with Perry would make headlines everywhere and cheque books flutter. However with all due respect, Perry at this stage does not have the vocals to deliver the show that the crowd would expect. The money-pit would run dry very quickly when Perry (I would expect) would quit the tour very quickly. Remember just how gruelling a schedule Schon and co do. It cripples s

Let's be honest here. Journey are in some ways a bit like David Coverdale is with Whitesnake. They want to perform the 'classic' most popular tracks as people would remember them in their prime.. (Well as close as poss) Ok David Coverdale has to temper it a bit due to being in some ways the 'weak link' but he and Journey know that the big pay cheque is to do all the classics as close to origi

I think we should start returning to looking at music as an art rather than a technical exercise. Perry has got older, the other guys from Journey has got older. Does that mean he has to sing like it's 1984? Of course not. I've never been the biggest Journey fan but I have to admit when Perry sings, you believe what he is singing. A reduced range etc matters very little when there is tha

I thought this was great and they look scarily similar. Both very good sports to dress the same etc and play up to the joke.. Will Ferrell was surprisingly good behind the drums too. Good guys!

I think they're a great band and Danny Bowes is a hugely underrated singer. He seems to be able to naturally keep his voice in great shape. However, I do feel Luke Morley (who is pretty much the sole songwriter) can get a bit stale on ideas. I think maybe a little collaboration in the song writing wouldn't go a miss.
