You know what, I'm inclined to agree with you.. SATS was great & Robert Johnson's Tombstone was a pretty fine album in the most part. I thought the Bowes & Morley album 'Moving Swiftly Along' was very good so it's not like everything has to be 'full bore'. But, Morley needs new inspiration in my opinion so as you said earlier, someone like Andy Taylor etc to bring a bit of punch back

Honestly, I was there in 1995 and the band were a mighty live act.. A brilliant performance and this video is fantastic.. Hats off to all the Bon Jovi boys on this one.

I'm struggling with them.. They do seem a bit repetitive for my taste though there are a couple of tracks on 'Damned' which catch my ear. I'll be honest in that I still think the debut 'The Heroin Diaries' is still brilliant and they're still yet to get near it..

I'll check out more of this album and report back, but..... I wouldn't be surprised if I find it too 'middle of the road'. I have to hold my hands up and say that Thunder frustrate me. They're a very strong live act, Danny Bowes still has a top-notch voice and they can come back after a break with a great album. 'Shooting At The Sun' was a brilliant return in my opinion. However, I still t

Thanks for that Marco, I like it.. I'm an on-off fan of Nickelback and the more crass sexual tracks don't do it for me (excuse the pun) but when there is a little more depth to the meaning, I think they're good. I'm quite interested to hear how the new album is going to sound.

The guys do look like they need a hug but you never know they might be playing a clever card and getting people watching the video.. A curious strategy I must admit.. On the 'bad' video front, there are many many contenders for bad videos and many many come from the 'Frontiers' camp....

Ditto.... Though far from perfect, Coverdale's releases are always worth a listen and usually a marked step up from a lot of rock releases.. I'll have a listen if he and Hoekstra bring something to the table..

This has all the signs of cashing in by whoever organises these releases.. I like Chickenfoot but either release a new studio album or leave it be.

Ditto.. Looks brilliant.. I know Schenker has had his troubles over the years but I find him a very likeable guy and he's a cracking performer when he's on form.

A great video.. Good to see behind the scenes... That said I like Cindy Lauper.. Not everyone's cup of tea but she's unmistakable... :)

Personally I think the closest thing to Abba and Nightwish was when Anette was singing on Dark Passion Play because her voice reminded me of Abba and obviously the rest of the music / songwriting reminded me of Nightwish (for obvious reasons) Great album too. This is a bit odd..

I won't speculate after an absense from a gig. Could be a vast number of reasons. Personally I think it's great that these guys have been able to enjoy some more 'lavish' treatment with the touring. They put on a great show and Corabi hasn't had as much success over the years that I think he's deserved.

I agree.. We have a re-recorded version of Hysteria but it seems most albums are 'missing in action'

No worries.. I think all 14 tracks on the 'album' are interview segments with Steve.. Very insightful.

Just stumbled on 'In the 80's' on Def Leppard's page on Spotify. Seems to be all Steve Clark's takes on Hysteria, The Music, Touring etc. A fascinating listen and to me you can hear why he was so integral to the band.. https://open.spotify.com/album/6qYbWjppS6rHgGTieiLYB0

Song isn't bad. Nothing spectacular but not bad. What stood out for me is that the band by and large all have very good voices. Vivian has a very good singing voice here. The only one that grates on me is Phil Collen's and the way he pronounces his words. Not massively noticeable here but I'm not a fan.

Personally I tolerate The Answer.. They have some fairly decent tracks to my ears but nothing that would make me purposely pay to see them. The Dead Daisies on the other hand have been a bit of a revelation since John Corabi has been on vocals. I think the band has a cracking vibe at the mo and somehow has just the right personalities.. I know they're kind of a 'super-group' but I hope the

The audio with the audience clapping etc was hard to hear but I like Carrie Underwood and nice to see her rocking things up a bit.

She has a tendancy to go borderline bonkers with her outfits and some of her songs do nothing for me but I have no doubt on this earth about her singing ability.. I think she has an amazing voice. Much like Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas, sometimes it takes a cover of another artists music to really show how good she is.. (Fergie - Barracuda etc)

Personally I think that's a touch harsh.. I'm not a big Maroon 5 fan but their debut was a pretty strong release. It's been a pretty bland affair since, mind.

Undertow Daddy, Brother, Lover, Little boy. Take Cover Around the World How Can You Do What You Do I Won't Get In My Way. Not a bad start. Return to Budokan live on youtube is a good watch too.

That's interesting Dave. I would personally label the likes of Alter Bridge, Halestorm etc in different categories as the traditionally known 'Melodic Rock' banner. As Hot Sauce said, I'd put some in Hard Rock and more symphonic rock in the case of Within Temptation. I do tend to look at Melodic Rock as it's discussed on this website, more in keeping of the Frontiers approach..

Is some of it down to record companies finding a 'workable' business model by often creating multiple 'bands' and 'projects' often with the same writers and musicians (at least in part) appearing in each. This is purely an example and not an opportunity to have a dig but as an example Alessandro Del Vecchio who appears to either sing, play keyboards or produce a great number of recent melodic
