Lots of great memories you all shared! Very cool! Thanks! I'm jealous of some of the gigs you all mentioned...Queensryche opening for Dio? Wow - never had the pleasure of seeing Dio live. That would have been quite the show. I had no idea Queensryche was playing here (Denver) tonight...I don't usually miss concert news like that. Hmmph.

To each their own, but I will say this - I am probably that rare person that loves 80's Europe AND current Europe equally. Songs like Final Countdown, Scream of Anger, Superstitious, and Open Your Heart are flat out classics, but I very much enjoy songs like War of Kings, Hole in My Pocket, Last Look at Eden, and The Beast too. I got the chance to see them live for the first time ever last year

I enjoyed the Queensryche thread CCM started below. A few people mentioned how they first got into the band and I thought that might make an interesting thread of its own. So I'll start off: For me, the first time I heard them was seeing the Eyes of a Stranger video on MTV (back when they played such things). I loved the song, and liked the look of the video - plus I thought the drum set w

Definitely not what we are used to - to me it is like a mashup of CM, and Marilyn Manson, with some of the modern flavors of Degreed (but without the tunefulness of Degreed). I don't hate it but I prefer them big, lush, and bombastic to modern, distorted, and very light on hooks.

Got it yesterday, but still need to listen. I became a fan when they had John Prakesh, so I will miss him I'm sure. Still looking forward to hearing this though.

Good point. I mean, if Rockenfield and Wilton became brain-eating zombies, his behavior would be totally justified. Otherwise, he is the one with the problem. Its all about context. :-)

I would say the Queensryche of today is still great, but there is definitely a marked difference between the Tate that was and the Tate that is.

This is a hard one I think. Not as obvious as Motorhead - Motorhead without Lemmy would have been pretty pointless. the Eagles on the other hand - Frey was not the Eagles alone in the way that Lemmy WAS Motorhead. At the very least, Henley, Schmidt, and Walsh together could still be a big draw. I could even see them going out as Henley-Walsh-Schmidt, or HWS or something. Maybe retiring the E

I liked the Purple album myself. I didn't discover Deep Purple's music until much later in life, so that may have helped in the liking for me. The originals were not sacred and precious to me, as they seem to have been for some. I caught them on the tour for the Purple album too and they were fantastic! First time I'd seen them since the Slip of the Tongue tour. My only regret is never c

My favorite work by Jorn is probably his stuff with Masterplan and Allen-Lande, but he has put out some quality stuff under his own name too. The only complaint would be, if you listen to album after album, there can be a same-y dirge-y plod to his music...I do often wish he would change it up more, more uptempo stuff, more melodic stuff. No doubt he is a quality singer though. I didn't notice

These days, I tend to prefer when a band releases a live album with the CD and DVD (or Blu-Ray) packaged together. So in that regard, I was disappointed when they only released a CD for this release. That being said, it is a good live album, with good renditions of the Styx classics.

Chas West, best known for singing with the Jason Bonham Band I believe. He is also the singer that took over for David Reece in Tango Down. I have to say, I saw Tango Down twice (at MRF 3 & 4) and loved them with Reece. Could not have imagined liking them as much with a different frontman. But I got to see the West fronted version open for House of Lords last November and they were fantast

I don't have much on that list but I have always liked Slip of the Tongue - I have that version too with the extra tracks. Good stuff! Also, I am a fan of the WWIII...the Mandy Lion band right? (I think there was another band called WWIII). He was a bit over the top lyrically (understatement). I also liked his track "The Beast" on George Lynch's Sacred Groove - "I am the w

Yeah, I don't see it available on any of my usual CD sources either. And I see their website does not have a store. Definitely worth it if you can get your hands on it - I have both versions. I do see the original version is available for sale in various places. The new version must've been a pretty limited release? Even NEH has been out of it for some time (my usual first stop for CD purc

I could see them doing the "warts and all" thing and leaving it in. It happened and its all over social media so why not? Maybe as a bonus feature they can throw in a video of the full drum solo recorded from a different show. I got to see it live and it was a pretty cool drum solo.

Ok, so it seems an Axl/Slash/Duff version of GNR is a certainty, and Journey is now 4/5 of the Escape/Frontiers lineup. With that, I am curious what other rumored reunions do people find most likely: Van Halen with Sammy Hagar Skid Row with Sebastian Bach Mick Mars and John Corabi doing something again Or fill in the blank with your favorite/most likely rumor...there may be some I have no

Looking for Love wasn't on the original version of that Whitesnake album, at least not the version we had in the States. I agree it is a superior song, but Is This Love is far better known and it sounds like the popularity factor played a part in this list.

I was lucky enough to catch Skid Row live with Tony and it was a fantastic performance, IMO. It was also the first chance I ever had to see one of my favorite vocalists, so I for one was appreciative of this union even though it was ultimately short lived. I hope Tony finds a new situation that will still give him the opportunity to play live in the U.S. more than he has the majority of his car

I may be the odd man out here, but I honestly don't think Adler or Izzy are necessary to this thing. I think at this point the reunion is for live dates - Izzy's greatest contribution to GNR was in the songwriting department IMO. I saw them once just before Izzy left (about a month before the release of UYI) and then once after Gilby stepped in and frankly, I didn't think it made much differenc

Have you listened to Slash's last one, World on Fire? I loved it, thought it was one of the best albums he has ever been involved in (including all the GNR stuff). I liked Chinese Democracy, though I still prefer Appetite and UYI I and II. To each their own, I guess...

Maybe I just need to purchase his digital singles and compile my own album or EP or whatever? Whatever happened with that collaboration with Kee Marcello that I heard about like a year or two ago? Any idea if Frontiers has ever offered him some kind of deal? If they signed him to do a project of some kind, maybe with Ale Del Vecchio and/or Erik Martensen...that could be cool.

I actually thought 2015 was a great year: Eclipse, Revolution Saints, Europe, Def Leppard, Ammunition, Station, Khymera, Stryper to name but a few of the MANY CDs I bought and loved this year.

What do you think? What are the chances that Steve Augeri will finally release a full length solo album in 2016? With both Perry and Pineda talking about solo albums for 2016, it got me thinking the guy that came between them should put one out too. Can't speak for everyone, but I would love that. Seen Augeri live a bunch of times, 4 or 5 with Journey and then his MRF solo set. Which in som

Seeing a number of Journey nods in this thread but not my favorite of theirs: Ask the Lonely. love the song, can't help singing along "when your feeling love's unfair, you just ask the lonely!" Another one I thought of: Africa by Toto. Come on, who doesn't sing along to "Its gonna take a lot to drag me away from you"?

Ooo, I love Nobody's Fool. Possibly my favorite Loggins song and the one song I hoped to hear when I saw him live this year that he didn't do. He did a great set, just wish this had been in it.

Reading this while listening to the Kotipelto/Liimatainen cover of the classic Gary Moore/Phil Lynott song "Out in the Fields" - quite a good chorus on that one! A few other favorite choruses of mine: Superstitious - Europe Sound of Home - Pride of Lions Hard to Love - Harem Scarem Heaven Tonight - Yngwie Malmsteen

And now it is a race...who will get their solo album out first, the current singer for Journey or the classic voice of Journey? I will definitely be getting both Perry and Pineda. And these two to the list of reasons I am looking forward to 2016. Now we just need Augeri's long awaited full length solo debut to finally see the light of day.

The one Bret solo album I own is Songs of Life - and I really like it. But I have zero interest in buying any of his other solo work because as I understand it, everything else he has released is a) country music, b)re-packaging of songs from previous solo releases including Songs of Life, or c) cover tunes with his buddies. No interest in that. If he could do another solo album the quality of
