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?

Unique talent. Uniquely weird with it.

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...)

Late to this fascinating debate. Nirvana was simply a moment in time. The 60s was free love, the 70s punk/mod rebellion, The 80s was fun time, in the 90s people got all miserable and pessimistic. Hence 30m album sales for Nirvana.... For the record I hated the whole grunge scene but on reflection that's only because I am a hopeless optimist. I hope the irony of Cobain being so fed up he shot

Hi Andrew, We pay commission to 'introducers' as they give us access to business and therefore customers we couldn't get to direct. You have the contacts in the industry = 'the business' and to customers (your subscribers). Could you put the 2 together? Maybe exclusive products/downloads, concert tickets etc? Just trying to help mate. All the best for 2014

Agree Al - Shades was a fantastic source for new bands. So many of my favourites were discovered there - and with Simon at Destiny Records (Venice and Dishwalla most memorable). Also Loud 1 and ST Records. Bought Kerrang and Metal Forces as well as a few more obscure mags (no not THAT type). That said I was much more prolific in building my collection in those days (pre big mortgages, hungry kid

Apologies if this has been a thread previously but is this available? There are some Youtube clips with a couple of tracks but I've never managed to get hold of the full version.

Always been on my wants list. Had a bootleg copy but it is poor quality. Hopefully it will surface one day. Halycon days for rock and for Scorpions of course.

My ears are ringing. I picked a call up in the office this morning and apparently it didn't ring. Insane peformance. That said, I enjoyed them more as a support band to Maiden. You can't fault the energy or enthusiasm but I wasn't as sold on them as I expected. Different challenge as a headline act. Well attended gig though and crowd seemed to enjoy the show. I am going to practice crackin

They without doubt THE best rock band to emerge in the last decade. I saw them for the 7th time in Manchester on the latest tour and their performances just get better. My sons & I met the band and they all came across as genuine guys. Once they heard my sons played guitar and drums respectively they gave them plectrums and sticks. It was a great day for us - often heroes can be a let down

Good point Laurent re Icon. I love their first 2 albums but listening to Night of The Crime in the car this morning I kinda get what you mean. It's a great record but in a bizarre way the vocals are too 'clean' (i.e. not as raw as say Vince Neil or Axl Rose). I don't think Icon's image helped, Ratt and Crue got away with the leather and lace thing but with Icon it just looked ridiculous. Sham

Anyone know if this is worth a read? Always had a soft spot for the band following my baptism of fire with Stangers In The Night as a spotty teenager.

I love this album as it was the very first CD I ever bought. I had a big vinyl collection already and got my first Sony CD player in 1985. I can remember being blown away by the layered guitars and the 'wall of sound'. Stands the test of time remarkably well and is a great reminder of how progressive and talented an outfit the original line up was. Agree the bass tho lol!

Great shout - this is totally awesome. Finally got a copy on DVD a couple of years ago and it really shows their talent. Geoff's voice sounds amazing. RIP! Degarmo ruled.
