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'

Wiki isn't the most credible of sources but it does appear he has featured on a LOT of releases. However, there are few 'Superstar' entries on that list. Alice Cooper's fairly recent release would be the biggest IMO.

Haha... Very good... Two lesser known albums: Vivaldi - The Four Seasons The Seikilos epitaph which I hear was around 1st century AD. :-)

1987 - A lot of filler but the good tracks are great.. 8 SOTT - Some brilliant tracks but mix lacks depth and Vai is a touch too nootletastic. Not heavy enough rhythm guitar. 7 1/2 Slide it In - Some filler but a great mix (prefer the U.S. release) and some fine tracks 7 Restless Heart - Far better than many of its critics suggest. Very different from the p

Bloody brilliant!! These guys are on fire right now.. Wish them all the best with the new album.. After Nikki Sixx slamming the Motley Crue album with John Corabi, recently, I think a classy track like this does sock it to ol Sixx and his 'goth-paint' Looking forward to the album.

I guess it's maybe his (very bad) attempt at acting and expressing forced emotion, considering he didn't write the songs on this covers album and maybe a hint of arrogance going on there too. Great voice, lousy actor!

There are so many great players that I've never heard of but for being great in their own field, I'd include: Gary Moore Yngwie Malmsteen (for technical brilliance) Dave Gilmour John Petrucci

I'm inclined to agree. There is no denying Jorn has a monster of a voice but these covers are pretty lazy affairs.. Following the originals in a very formulaic fashion, just adding the Frontiers default 'heavy' treatment. The videos almost define the metal cliche stereotypes of old.. I see little real artistic expression in these releases, mere 'metal by numbers'

Revolucion is a great album.. Really impressed with the line-up and Corabi's vocals... Hope this next album develops on that :)

I thought David Coverdale was disappointed that he wanted to do the remasters properly but the record company vetoed it? I stand by the Coverdale era Purple albums would benefit from the benefit of more modern technology (not overdoing it mind) to bring the sound out.. Personal taste and all that.

I've only listened to the album digitally so ultimately the mix will be flawed on that medium anyway, so i've more appreciated the songs and the weight rather than the audiophile quality.. It's tough because the original Deep Purple releases could do with a decent remix to bring more depth to them (in my opinion) so I guess both the originals and the 'Purple Album' are a good few degrees from

I admit I love 'Getting Tighter' even on Glen Hughes solo work. Would maybe have been nice to have him guest on this track.. But other than that, A fine album.. I could listen to some of the tracks quite regularly..

I'm really enjoying the album. Purists will argue about the originals etc etc but I think the album stands up in its own right with a heavier more bombastic delivery.. I think the final track 'Comin' Come' is ace! A fine effort by all involved..

4 Non Blondes were a good few years back. Planet of Women were both visually and audibly rather excellent.. :) Alannah Myles (of Black Velvet fame) has had her moments too

Thunder tend to frustrate me.. Great singer, good musicians and some fine tracks, but also too many mediocre songs from a band of this quality. First three are excellent. 'Backstreet Symphony', 'Laughing on Judgement Day', 'Behind Closed Doors'.. Then it all goes a bit downhill. Then they come back with 'Shooting at the Sun' which is very strong, then it starts to fade away again. 'Wond

I've owned Windows PC's since Windows 3.x days and worked with them for over 20 years and..........I use a MAC.. I begrudge handing Apple my cash but I have a MacBook Pro (which I paid blood for) and it's mostly brilliant for what I need. My biggest issue is USB latency when recording Audio and MIDI and on the Mac it's been more than adequate. I find with Windows PC's, they work well when

I have to admit I was only a casual fan of Prince's own music. I'll probably find I like more of his stuff now I go looking for it.. Sad how that happens. What I did find interesting was the amount of songs performed by other artists that he either wrote or co-wrote. A very talented guy. Personally, I think the thing with Prince is that even if you do or don't like his music, it's hard to

I read yesterday some fairly uncomplementary about the 'Motley Crue' 1994 self titled album and John Corabi's inability to write lyrics. Which is contrary to Tommy and Mick who really sing its praises, (as do I) Now I can't deny 'The Heroin Diaries' was a great Sixx AM album and i've not really listened to the latest one a whole lot, but the music in between hasn't been bad but it's not exa

I can't say I'm the biggest BCC fan but they have done a few fine songs to these ears... That said, these 'Rock Star' spats are getting a little laughable.. All a bit public 'hand-baggy' then a year or so later its business as usual. Kids eh? :D

Personally I thought his singing (vocally) was really good. Strong voice, on pitch.. Overall I find the current Journey 'circus' seems a bit of a caricature of them in their prime. Neil Schon with his dark glasses etc looks a bit cabaret these days and the whole band looks somewhat incohesive.. Vocal performances seem the better part of the current show..

Some slightly left of field choices which don't sound bad but Jorn churning out the music he does feels like a Lamborghini continually driving round in circles in a supermarket carpark. Perhaps fun but woefully under-achieving on what he's capable of.. He also seem to continually look like he's trying to do a poo in every video..

I really liked Ian Paice's speech. Very honest and kinda summed up the Deep Purple journey.. Bands really are like life in concentrated shiny tinsel. Bonkers!

As we discussed before, Danny Bowes still has all the range of his earlier years but he doesn't 'attack' his voice in its delivery like he used to (probably a good reason why his voice is still in top shape)
