I think it's annoying when both sides air their drama, and that can turn me off, but if the music if still good, then who cares.

Actually, you maybe a little confused because of some board humor, but DL actually is not playing deep cuts. The only semi-deep cut is "When Love and Hate Collide." They have kept 1 song from their most recent album in the set as well, "Man Enough." But, everything else is straight off a greatest hits collection.

Norum isn't the most social of guys, which is why I think he skips them.

They are most definitely still headed to Australia. They have been discussing on the Facebook and Twitter pages over the last few days.

I'd agree if it were the 1980's, early 90's, but I don't know about that now... Frontiers puts out a ton of drivel that sounds cookie-cutter, and many times like crap. I can't imagine they told Coverdale it sucked and they wouldn't put it out.

Saw Firehouse a couple weeks back w/Lita Ford. They were very good as always.

Agreed with 90% of everyone else. I downloaded the couple I liked, but not buying the full thing. You start to wonder if maybe all the quantity out of MS the last few years is starting to impact the quality.

They had a listing of tour dates come out yesterday and it listed the Tokyo dates, but nothing in Australia.

Ya, but they need to accept people are still going to ask the question, though I'm sure they are annoyed. It's no different than people always asking if Steve Perry will ever come back to Journey. Everyone knows there's a 99.9999999% chance it will never happen, but they still ask.

You see the comments above. I think it is simpler than everything mentioned. I think BJ is a "safe" inductee. Unless you just don't like them, who can argue with what they have accomplished musically, and still a big draw world wide. IMO, I think BJ getting in helps open the door for other hard rock/metal bands to be considered. Regardless to anyone's personal opinions, there is

My point was that JBJ/BJ was being compared to Don Dokken, Coverdale, etc because of his dwindling vocal ability, yet BJ are still a significant draw regardless to where they are playing. They aren't playing clubs or on 3-band summer shed tours around the US/World still trying to viable.

"Robert" I agree with your take on it too. I was also curious as to why they passed on Wanted and played the new single. Maybe JBJ felt that Wanted would put the focus more on him and RS instead of the whole band. Also, possibly highlighting the new track as a tip of the cap to their own history..."When We Were Us" and the whole band was together and conquering the world yea

The only difference between JBJ/BJ and the others is that terrible vocals or not, BJ is still selling a crapload of concert tickets and selling out arenas and stadiums worldwide. :)

Being a YT video the sound isn't great, so I'll wait to see the actual show with the quality audio to judge.

Sure they don't have too, but I don't think Jon can vocally do it much longer. Not his fault, all the years of singing and age are just catching up to his voice. Also, if he's made comments about not being as excited to do the touring anymore, what's left once Jon

I have to say I was pretty interested because BJ is probably the first big band that I liked growing up that's been inducted. I thought the speeches were fine...Jon's full band history was way too long, but he was getting his monies worth. Howard Stern was Howard Stern, so the intro is what I expected. Even with poor audio in the YT vid and limited vocal warm-up, it's clear Jon's losing wh

Maybe not heavy metal, but always like John Norum's "Endica" from Face the Truth. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YqdMv3u8Yn0

Bon Jovi is far more a brand name now than either RATT or Wet. I understand the comparison with losing the guitarist and respect your opinion. Much like Journey or Foreigner... If Jon is there, nobody...mostly middle-aged housewives who had a crush on him and still do...cares who is playing the songs.

He's not even excited about it while he's talking. It seems more like he owed someone a favor and he did the testimonial.

Much better. Hated the first song. I get they were trying to be different and outside the box on it. Happy with Sorry tho.

Foreigner are proof that at some point it's beyond the songs and the band becomes a brand. I would bet that outside of the small percentage of knowledgeable folks on this site, 99% of the people at the Foreigner show don't know and don't care about who is in the band. They just want to hear the hit songs, and the current version of the band does that well.

It's probably one of the better more recent tunes. It's definitely in that mid to slower tempo area they have lived in for a while, almost ballad-ish if it were a love song. IMO, newer BJ just lacks creativity. The sound is basically the same, probably thanks to Shanks being involved in everything, and even the lyrics.. How many times is a "fighter" referenced.. all the time. That s

IMO, Shanks has changed the sound of the band as the producer, and in many ways is the writing partner Sambora used to be. Shanks even plays in the band. Some might say that once you get that close, you lose your objectivity, where another producer might be able to get something else out of them because they are hired for the album and then move on to other projects. I too don't hate too often

I was going to say something along the same lines. Vinnie was never going to be asked to be on the cover of GQ. Who says you have to be good looking to be talented at something!

You have to take this guy with a grain of salt. It is at the end of the day his opinion. That said, whether these bands are current day Journey knock-offs or trying to be is determined by the ears of those listening. That said, and the point was made by someone else. A lot of melodic rock sounds the same. It is not always considered good or groundbreaking, but everyone is a copycat to some d

Some of the tracks aren't that bad. That said, those hoping for old school BJ aren't going to get it. What has perplexed me since this whole RSO thing started was that one of RS biggest reasons for moving on was wanting to sing... Unless I've missed something, Orianthi seems to be getting more of the lead and primary vocals.

Europe is definitely a better live act than they ever have been on the album, and the few times I have seen them, they have never disappointed. That said, I could see how some might find their current output live, followed by Deep Purple a bit of a bore, at least in the sense of tempo, since many tracks are in that mid-tempo range, with a similar vibe. Like Deep Purple and DP Lite.

The potential could be there, but that's 2 big egos with DC and RS right there.
