I was thinking same thing... Joel comes around the corner backstage...runs into Night Ranger: "Oh, uh, hey guys! How's it goin'?" Jack Blades: "Joel" Kelly Keaggy: "Joel" Brad Gillis: "Hmmph" Awkward. Lol. Nah, I think the NR guys wished him the best and maybe genuinely meant it. Heck, maybe getting NR on the Whitesnake tour was partly

Ooh, and the date they are advertising is about 2 hours north of me! I may have to do this...I missed Night Ranger's Denver date last year because I was on my honeymoon (at least I had a good reason! :-) ) Whitesnake was my second ever concert (at Red Rocks in 1990 with Bad English - great show!) and I haven't seen them live since. So...

Great review of the new Eclipse CD, Andrew! Can't wait to hear it. Sucks that i have to wait until mid-to-late February. One thing that immediately struck me as I read the review though was the thought "how great would it be if there could be an MRF 5 someday, bringing back Eclipse and H.e.a.t.?" I know the presence of another festival in that area, combined with the apparent la

All due respect, to me this is a prime example of the incredible sense of entitlement people have these days. Everyone not only would LIKE something for free, they feel like they deserve it. its cool when an artist or label is able to give out a freebie, but it is turning into an expectation anymore. And I agree, using the "no fair, I want free stuff too" arguement to jusitfy stealin

I'm really going to try to go...Europe has been a favorite of mine since 1988, I've loved all their stuff since they got back together too, and I have never seen them live. It isn't like they play the U.s. much these days so they'd be worth the trek for me. Its funny I keep seeing comments around about same old, same old...maybe I just don't hit enough of these festivals, but I'd say most o

I still prefer to purchase physical CDs - I have a couple of local stores where I can occasionally find stuff (Independent Records, Angelo's CDs & More, Second Spin - all in Colorado), but my main go-to for melodic rock music is NEH Records. Online store, and as an added bonus for me they are physically in Colorado so when they mail to me I pretty much always get it within 2 days. But I kno

A lot of these I'd heard about...of the ones I hadn't, the first big surprise to jump out at me is Kiske/Somerville II - I had no idea they were doing a follow up. I really liked the first one, although I'd have liked it if Amanda Somerville had had some lead vocals in there. It felt more like a Michael Kiske melodic rock album with Amanda Somerville as a featured vocalist providing harmonies,

I actually like them, and I'm a big Journey, Foreigner, Survivor type of music fan, so this is definitely outside of that box. Maybe I like it to provide some variety in my musical palette. I have actually enjoyed all of Europe's albums since they reformed too.

Hey Signal Fan...I kept hearing that lyric as: "I won't go down My Mainstay's Immortal" So i guess I was a little closer... :-)

Granted, it has been 2 and a half decades since the show, but I don't remember it snowing. I do remember it raining - in fact, I bought a bright orange plastic parka thing at that show that said "I got rained on at Red Rocks" on the back. I was third row from the top, like row 124 or something - the bands were about the size of action figures from my vantage point. Quite a shift from m

Just being honest (I mean, check the screen name, right? ;-) ) anyway...I am kind of torn here. Did Daisley and Kerslake get a raw deal? Yeah, absolutely, and I wouldn't blame him for being angry and bitter over it. On the other hand, a part of me wants to say "dude, that album, iconic as it is, was made 30 years ago...so as Elsa might say - Let it go!" (Yes, I just put Ozzy and Fr

Well, I'm not trying to excuse Sharon's actions, but while it is well-documented that she can be nasty and ruthless, one could also say there would be no Ozzy without her. She took a bloated, drug addicted mess who had given up and made him get off his "arse" and make music again. He could have easily, EASILY, faded away and become a has been. So, i think it is one of those "tak

It would be cool if they come to the U.S. Whitesnake with Bad English at Red Rocks was my second ever concert.

Can't say I agree with the list...but as others have said...subjective. I do like the new Rival Sons and rank them high, maybe not #1. I like the new Slash a lot and thought Black Stone Cherry and Ace Frehley were both decent releases. But there are many CDs i'd have put higher (H.e.a.t.) or on the list that weren't even there. I can say I don't think I have heard any of the others in their

Asia kind of bored me but I actually liked Sebastian Bach. Thought Tesla was alright and I REALLY liked Gotthard. Didn't hear Flotsam or Panther.

Not sure about songs, but I can name at least a few of my favorite albums this year off the top of my head: H.e.a.t./Tearing Down the Walls - agree, absolutely love it! Johnny Lima/My Revolution In Faith/There's a Storm Coming Angels or Kings/Kings of Nowhere Slash ft. Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators/World on Fire Magnum/Escape From the Shadow Garden Overland/Epic L.R.S./Down to th

I know Bon Jovi's "Hey God" has that lyric: "Hey God, tell me what the hell is goin' on It seems like all the good shit's gone It keeps on getting harder hanging on..." I think Jon's voice was closer to Michael Bormann's at that time...

Some people will probably disagree with this fitting the "great band" part of the thread, but I always thought Hootie and the Blowfish was a great band with a bizzare name. And in the "don't care for the band AND the name is weird" category, I submit Flock of Seagulls and Toad the Wet Sprocket.

Personally, I like the way Frontiers packages them now, where you get the live CD and DVD in one package. I sometime see other companies do that, but anymore Frontiers always does that with their live releases and I like that. The only time I have bought seperate live CD and live DVD recently was for the Toto Live in Poland, and I really enjoy it in both formats.

well, thanks everyone! This thread piqued my interest as I have never heard this band. So I just checked out some samples over at NEH and liked what I heard. Seeing as today is my birthday, I think I may have just found a present to myself to order. :-)

Great new music (based on comments from those who heard already) and patience - I have a hard time putting those two together. Lol.

Hey, go rock...I emailed Michael at NEH yesterday to ask if he was going to carry this because I am interested in it too. He says he is just looking for a source for it right now...should know in a day or two.

It is really unfortunate, and surprising. I mean, when I heard Nikki Sixx was addicted to heroin, it was no surprise. When I heard about Ozzy and cocaine, no surprise. This, sadly, was a surprise. I don't say this to disparage the guy...whatever the circumstances, the loss to those who knew him is undoubtedly huge. And those of us who were fans, this one really hurts. He was one of the guys

If you like Gretchen doing Wild Side, check out her Under the Covers CD from a couple of years ago (the only thing I own by her). Stay With Me, Doctor My Eyes, Everybody Wants You, Bell Bottom Blues, Funk No. 49, Hot Blooded, Over the Hills and Far Away, I Want You to Want Me, Lights, Her Strut, Bad Company, and Into the Mystic. Great set of covers.
