If they had got a record deal a year or two earlier I think they would have been a lot bigger. They were one of the bands that got a record deal at the tail end of the 80s and just before grunge. It didn't help that the whole Contraband supergroup pulled Richard Black away from the group when a 2nd album would have been a better call. The unreleased demos are great and there are a couple tra

It's not just the music, it is the story of Operation:Mindcrime that he wants and got. He could turn the story into a comic book, novel, video game, animated film (which I believe was rumoured at one point), full length feature, etc. Any of these could be story based and not include music from the original album. He could then re-record O:M and have it as the "official soundtrack" co

Ok, so had a look at Tate's Operation Mindcrime website and looks like I was right. I didn't even know they signed to Frontiers, which in itself is quite a coup as the will get proper distribution (not sure who Queensryche are signed to). Sounds like it is at least a 3 album deal and the next chapter of the Operation Mindcrime story. I'm not a huge Queensryche fan, but I must keep up with ne

I believe it is also open for him to continue the story in any way he sees fit. I wouldn't be surprised to see Operation Mindcrime 3 in the near future. I know it looks like Queensryche got the way better deal, but Tate is not completely stupid. Operation Mindcrime was their greatest and most recognisable moment and he isn't finished exploiting it for financial gain.

The other thing to consider is that Tate could re-record Operation Mindcrime in its entirety and use it for anything he wants. If a movie was ever made he could re-record the soundtrack and any other associated merchandise sales would go directly to him. More than what album sales and club tours generate these days. My guess is he gave up the name and other rights for future consideratio

I think one of the reasons Tate wanted to retain Operation Mindcrime is that he has always had grand visions for the concept and even wanted to turn it into a film at some point. If, and it's a very big if, he ever got that off the ground and it got picked up by a major studio we may have to change our minds over who got the better deal. Never gonna happen, of course, but...

Truly excellent album. 2015 is shaping up to be a great year. I've already been blown away by the Dracula, Sweet/Lynch & Age Sten Nilsen's Ammuniton albums. The next few months promise some highly anticipated releases as well.

The big problem is Pearcy and Blotzer hate each other. DeMartini and Croucier are caught in the middle. Blotzer owns the Ratt name so the others can't go out and record/tour as Ratt, even if they wanted to. Pearcy seems to want to record, and has produced a lot of solo material, but Blotzer doesn't. It's criminal that DeMartini has so few recording credits to his name over the past 15 years, but

I think Lynch is on a roll at the moment. In the last 12 months we've had the excellent KXM, Lynch Mob - Sun Red Sun and not Sweet - Lynch. I think he went through his nu-metal and experimental phase and has gone back to his roots a little more the last few years. With his current output it's hard to question his work ethic or desire to make new music. If he continues with the recent high qua

Everyone I have spoken to has said that the U2 album was placed on their device in their Music app without their permission as well as in their iTunes Library. It doesn't download unless you are setup to automatically sync, but shows as stored in the cloud and ready to download. The key thing is I know have to delete it if I don't want it. It should be the reverse: available if you want it and

But it was put in your library to download, correct. You didn't have to search for it did you? Did Apple ask your consent? That's what people are complaining about. It was purposely placed either on their device or in their library without consent or warning.

I'm thinking it has to be someone Aldrich knows or recommended as it seems to have been decided on quite quickly. My guess is they are based on the West Coast. trying to think a little outside the box, so here goes.. Gonna go out on a huge limb here and say Russ Parrish (Satchel form Steel Panther) could play all the Whitesnake stuff. Not sure about writing new material, but... How abo

Aldrich and Coverdale have both said the new guitarist plays Gibson and Fender. Also confirmed that said person has not been in the band before. That rules out a lot of the speculation and players mentioned. Sambora also commented on Twitter it is not him. Other than that, no other information. Sounds to me like someone who has been suggested by Aldrich or someone he know very well and was

Never liked the Columbia remix. On Too High To Fly they went to the effort of removing or lowering down Lynch's overdubs. WTF! Curiously they did release the Columbia version in Japan as well.

Blotzer says quitting every year, but if you look at the history it's usually Pearcy deciding to do side project work because Ratt aren't doing anything or don't have tours booked. They all do that. After the Infestation tour they went on hiatus and all the members did side project work. Does Blotzer accuse the others of quitting? If they don't get along and aren't recording it's not an unwis

He recorded a solo album before (Japan only). He also spent some time in Whitesnake, a gig he would probably kill for now. Financially he'd be better off teaming up with Pearcy and Croucier than aligning with Blotzer.

The thing is Blotzer needs Pearcy more than the other way around. Pearcy will still tour on his own and record music for his hardcore fans while collecting any Ratt royalties, Blotzer won't do the same. He will need to find a new vocalist and if/when he does they Ratt will be consigned back to playing clubs. It's not like they set anything alight the years without Pearcy and they didn't record

Somehow I think Blotzer is the problem. From all accounts he owns 50% of the name/brand and hangs that over everyone's head and ensures they don't forget. Juan will probably leave as well (apparenty he's half the problem http://www.metalsludge.tv/?p=42202), which means Ratt now only features 2 of the original 5 members. Not sure how successful that would be compared to what they have had going
