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!

Geoff Tate in his prime would be a strong vocal contender. He would use some pretty deep 'lows' but hit the big ones on 'Roads to Madness' etc

I'm glad Sykes passed it by. I think Kotzen is just about the perfect fit with these 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.

Really impressed with the Winery Dogs. If I'm honest I think they're the best 'Super Group' I've heard. The album has well put together tracks with barely any filler and Kotzen has a surprisingly excellent voice. I'm actually surprised by Portnoy that he can play with such restraint.

That's pretty good news, if they put the time into decent tracks. I get the feeling 'The Union' hasn't got much past a mild 'simmer' but I could be wrong..

Not that there is the slightest chance in this happening but they could go out as a 5 piece with Reb Beach handling all guitar parts a la 1984/1985 ish (I think it was Super Rock in Japan or something)

I think it is a tough balance since no doubt it is hard for performing artists to make a crust as a pro musician. However, I do still think artists need to keep their feet on the ground and respecting the fans is an important part. OK you may make a few less $$ from 'Meet and Greets' but ultimately you'll be respected by your fan-base and long term I would hope that would be reflected in CD s

Regarding DeGarmo, that wasn't my point at all. For the record I thought 'Open' from 'Tribe' was a cracking track and all the other work with DeGarmo excellent. My point was a simple one. It appears DeGarmo packed it in due to at least in part, tensions with Tate. With Tate out of the picture maybe he will or won't work creatively with the band again. Even to guest on a track. I person

Dare I say, once the dust has settled, I wonder if DeGarmo will feel more relaxed to do a little work with Queensryche (minus Tate). Maybe a guest slot of co-write a track or two.

Though I very much heralded Queensryche with Todd and I feel Geoff Tate appears to have gone a fair degree off the rails, I still find this ending very sad. For Geoff Tate to effectively be erased from Queensryche's history in 2 years time, it's a very sad ending..
