I dunno.. I hear what you're saying but I think D.C. has a point. I'm not sure it's the people who don't like the album or are puzzled why he's released it, that he's having a rant at. I think it's those who's comments are just cheap insults without any substance. OK he's not amazingly humble but when is he ever but I can imagine it gets a bit grating when you put your heart and soul into som

Love him or hate him, he's certainly quite entertaining in interviews... Always an element of 'tongue in cheek' with his responses..

Eat em and Smile was great if a bit short, in my opinion. DLR band was excellent, A Little ain't enough, very good too. Skyscraper had its moments was a touch too polished. Your Filthy Little Mouth was a bit odd, but not horrendous..

I'd say there's no hard n fast rule. Some bands have an affinity with a certain singer or band member, others don't and others seem to split opinion. Bit of a cop-out but sometimes it either works or it doesn't with line-up changes. AC DC did well with a change. Van Halen will be debated till the end of time but try replacing Eddie Van Halen.... Queen to many seem to be their own cov

Nice idea internally for the band but as a creative work of Def Leppard.. No no no.... This should be a B-side or bonus product. Joe Elliot is the singer of the band..

No doubt he's a cracking singer!!! If it's not Bach, then this guy is a fine substitute..

Exactly.. Hagar is bound to be asked and by his own admission he can't admit giving an answer (it's who he is) even if later he often regrets it.. (which he has admitted he does too)

Certainly a very tight stadium act with Sammy Hagar. Slightly more 'Vegas' with DLR and a far narrower scope with the vocals.. Still have to love DLR's constant enthusiasm. The never ending puppy.

Maybe get Sykes, Marsden, Moody and Vandenberg in and go out with a 'span the ages' album. And if they're feeling really bold, get in Mutt Lange and Desmond Child to co write the odd track and get Glenn Hughes to do some backing vocals, plus a guest guitar slot by Richie Blackmore and that should cover a whole dose of eras with a hint of 80's commercial-tasticness. Just a thought. :)

I agree.. I'm sure the interviewers can't help themselves but to get the story onto Van Halen. Let's face it. It's comments about them that will draw people's attention..

Well he did sing 'Ain't Talkin 'bout Love' and 'You Really Got me' live from the 1st album if I remember right. :)

Hagar is a little like me in that he freely admits in hindsight he should probably not comment but in the moment when pushed, he can't resist sharing his opinion on the matter. I quite like DLR but I do miss the vast catalog of songs that don't get played by VH due to them being Sammy Hagar songs.

I think Hysteria was one of those 'wonder albums' where everything went wrong but they dug in and ultimately hit the exact right album for the exact right time. I agree they seem to be double guessing the double guessers then almost do the opposite by deciding to make an album that is nothing like what people are asking for. As you say, ultimately they should just write whatever they feel i

The Albums with Myles are very good but I still think the GnR brand attracts bigger audiences with Axl than Slash n co without. I'm thinking purely about the mass market and not dedicated music fans.

I agree losing Sambora is a massive loss. I was thinking more of the masses rather than the more astute music fan. Bon Jovi still seem to attract very big audiences despite Sambora being absent. If Jon Bon Jovi was taken out of the mix, I think in a fairly short time, numbers would drop.

I kinda agree. Skid Row are one of those unfortunate bands who've had an iconic singer. (Good and bad) and you take the singer away and they just don't seem to be the same. Guns n Roses would have been the same. Axl can somehow pull off GnR without the rest of the band but try the other way around and I think they would struggle. Bon Jovi (ok the name doesn't help) is another. Replace

This will certainly be a curious one. I was a huge D.L fan particularly of the Hysteria era and I'd say live, some of the Pyromania tracks are some of the best. (Stagefright, Rock Rock, Die Hard the Hunter etc) I'm also one of those curious folk that rates 'On Through the Night' above 'High n Dry'. That said I'm also one who thinks 'Adrenalize' went off the boil a bit and 'Slang' was a ve

I was a big fan of the music Queensryche pumped out until the mid 90's etc and Geoff Tate (in his day) is one of my very favourite singers. However there are a couple of issues that concern me. 1) I get the 'trilogy' thing but Operation Mindcrime 2 wasn't very good, bar a couple of fine tracks. IF OM2 was the bar that Tate sets then sadly Chris DeGarmo really was more key to the original

I agree. Maybe the fact that Van Halen went from a 'way out there' Showman like DLR who's voice was almost a sideline to everything else, to a Singer like Sammy Hagar. (and back again). In my opinion Van Halen with DLR either works (or worked) in the studio or if it's live you really have to be there to appreciate it. A live audio recording just highlights DLR's weaknesses and misses out o

I think it's mostly a great album and Vandenberg plays great guitar on it. Don't fade Away is a great tune but It is a curious choice for an album opener.. I'd say the tour wasn't that great though. Saw D.C. At Shepherd's Bush in 1997 and he spent a whole lot of time chatting and not vast amounts singing. He seemed a bit self-mocking back then. But the album.... Definitely impressive.

I'd throw in another... Fergie. (The singer not Prince Andrew's Ex.) She has a very impressive voice, especially when she gets into Rock.

Sharon den Adel from Within Temptation is a great singer. Lzzy Hale from Halestorm is also a cracking singer. No doubt that Floor Jansen (Nightwish) seems to be able to sing just about anything. Ladies of great presence and great voice. No disrespect to Issa but I've heard nothing from her yet that is anything other than entirely generic and could be sung by one of about a million other f

Curious decision. DLR excels with his showmanship and stage persona, not his recorded vocals. An unedited audio recording does seem a bit odd. Not exactly playing to their strengths..

Well it was more than a close relative. A touch more than just 'inspiration' from Tom Petty's song.

Ahh good stuff.. Thanks mate.. I'd certainly not want SOTT to lose all its uniqueness but the original did seem a little light at the bottom so to speak.

Horses for courses. David Coverdale being far more a Baritone who could scream and Ian Gillan being a Tenor who could hit the high notes clean. (In my opinion) I've always thought Coverdale had a much thicker / soulful very low area to his range..
