OK, I have to come clean everyone. I played all the guitar parts on Van Halen's debut. Impressive eh - I was only 13 at the time. Please don't tell Andrew.

He is only 26. He is a tremendous athlete - unique in his position. Losing a Superbowl at this point in his career is a good thing I think. Humility and respect are great attributes. As well as being able to imitate Usain Bolt's trademark pose.

Quick summary - Highly Suspect - new band for me. 3 piece. Nice vibe. Short set. Good crowd response. Will be checking out material. Halestorm - a tad biased as I am a huge fan (though still not feeling last album). Blew the roof off. 40 minute set. great mix of old and new. New songs given new energy and power in live environment. Izzy's voice was superb, band tight as always. Drum solo sh

Rock by numbers for me. Were a favourite of band of mine in the late 70s and 80s but their recent releases leave me cold. It's 2016!

CCM I agree, Tate was brilliant you won't find a bigger fan of that back catalogue what I was alluding to was the complete bollox that since unfolded. One of the things I loved about the band (I met them many times) was that they were 'together' - a single force which made them so outstanding. I prefer to remember that time, appreciate the new QR and ignore the bile that ensued.

Hearing the EP in 1983 followed by the Dio support slot. Love at first hear. I thought they had it all at their peak - great albums, songs, production, live shows plus individual musical talent at every position. Just brilliant.. Not always sure about their image though but I can forgive that in light of the back catalogue.

I totally agree. Moyes did an amazing job at Everton but was flattered into the poisoned chalice (following Fergie into Utd). His reputation has been so damaged by that experience. The UK managers never get the big jobs these days as the league is obsessed with overseas names and quick results. Someone with a club backing a 3 to 5 vision would be such a refreshing change.

Rage for Order was the very first CD I bought in 1985. It still remains one of my all-time favourites. Their back catalogue still stands tall IMHO. Chris DeGarmo was a huge loss I think. I am liking the latest incarnation though. As for Mr Tate, I won't even go there...

Even if the drummer is outstanding? Arejay's solos are typically short but great entertainment. As is his sister....allegedly. As for Shinedown they are either sublime or dull no middle-ground. At the Leeds show Friday and looking forward to Black Stone Cherry once again proving their top billing. Always brilliant live. All in all a cracking line up for £30.

Interesting debate for me owning a reasonable collection (not as big as some of you out there) I still like nothing better than adding to it but find myself increasingly drawn back to the early stuff. In my case from discovering rock in the mid-70s. Often for sentimental reasons (nothing wrong with that) but also because there was so much great music from so many great bands and new genres/varia

Yep ditto for me. HnD was the blueprint for what was to come, accepting that worldwide success came with the next release. Great album!

100% agree. At their best they were almost peerless. Not just recordings but live too. Sadly, I just don't see a return. You have to evolve or you are only a pale imitation or what you once were.

I for one am delighted to see Rocknut back. A real asset. And not afraid to call other out and say things as he sees them. Which is what a forum is all about.

Being in UK I had to wait until January! Did the same though mate. Trip to London to Shades. Totally agree with sentiment here. Meeting the guys there who were as into the music as I was - amazing. They gave me so many great recommendations. Even got to meet Metallica there just after release of Kill Em All. Brilliant memories. Great to see vinyl making such a comeback but ordering online

Yes thanks that's the one. Can't find it now though, guess it is rather obscure!

The recent post re Jeff Paris got me wondering. Have the vinyl release of the What If album but I seem to recall seeing it on import CD in Shades many moons ago. Never tracked the CD down since, can anyone shed any light please?

It's hard to single anything out as Rick's back catalogue is so good but Tao and Rock of Life are absolute classics IMO. Considering their age they still sound great (yes even the synths!).

I think Mech Resonance stood out because it is such a strong album (almost said 'record' then). There was so much product being released at that time and so much of it was very average IMO. Don't get me wrong, there was some great music but it was definately quantity over quality. Seemed like anyone with a guitar/spandex/hair and attitude got signed. Shame things have gone so far the other way

All-time classic - remember being blown away first time I played it. Never quite scaled the same heights after that though for me.

Had the post come from Myles Kennedy and Mark Tremonti I might have taken it seriously.... They would have commented but are currently in Japan playing rather larger venues than those with 800 capacity. Alter Bridge is the blue-print for contemporary rock music - just give Fortress a few spins (not 1 as it's not throw-away fluff...)
