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.

wait...now they're "invigorated" by their Rock N Roll Hall of Fame induction?

Myles and Ed K. are two great singers from that era, though I admit my awareness of Myles began with Alter Bridge and his small role toward the end of Rock Star (the only "singer" to front Steel Dragon in that movie who provided his own singing voice). I have always appreciated Cornell's voice, though I don't really connect with most of his music - just not to my taste, but his voice i

I never got anything from the Flys, but I have (and still listen to) the self-titled Mozart disc. They had a kind of Queen-ish vibe about them...I like it.

Reminds me a little of lighter Bon Jovi...makes sense since i read he used to sing in a Bon Jovi cover band.

The difference is that Whitesnake at least is (for the most part) highlighting different lineups of the band. Looking forward to the upcoming one featuring the band with John Sykes. I enjoyed the one with Vai and Vandenburg too. Maybe Made In Japan, followed by Made in England about a year later was a bit much. So by way of comparison, if Foreigner was releasing a definitive live CD/DVD pack

I really like this one too. Might be my favorite solo release from Michael and I have liked all of his solo albums.

Really enjoyed reading it, Andrew. I don't think I read it first time around...I was a late bloomer as far as Shark Island fandom goes. I think I finally got in to them about 3-4 years ago. Did you ever try to get them for one of the MRFs? It sounds like they would have been one of those acts like Heaven's Edge - you never knew they were this good until you saw them live. Also, do you know i

hmm, they played for a long time. I could probably name a number of songs they played, but not necessarily in order. I believe they opened with Go For A Ride and closed with Gravity. Over the course of the set, they also played Stoplight, Sing, Cellophane, Better This Way, Dance of a Lifetime (I think), Beyond Beautiful (which Keith said was his favorite song that he wrote with Richie), This Su

Thank you for sharing that. Celebration of life is never OT, man! Especially the life of a child. All my best to him and you.

When Mark Evans of Heaven's Edge said from the stage that he was 52, I think the performance of the band became just that much more impressive in my mind. I hope I am in that good of shape when I am 52 (in 7 years).

I can't speak for everyone, but I've found that flights to Chicago are some of the cheapest I've ever booked. I fly Southwest into Midway and rent a car to get out to the MRF area. And if the lineup was great and hard to see anywhere else, I would gladly fly in for it. That's the thing with these events, how many other shows did H.e.a.t have in the U.S. this year? What about Harem Scarem last

My thought: MRF5: Best of MRF. Headliners W.E.T. and H.e.a.t. (the ones that seemed to get talked about most after their respective MRFs). Those of us who went keep talking up how good they were, we all come back and the folks that missed them first time around get all jealous for missing it, are grateful for a second chance, and turn up too. Pack a lot of the other well-received acts from p

For the most part, I agree with your assessments. I have a few differences though: I loved Work of Art...thought they were fantastic. They didn't rock out like some of the other bands, but that isn't their style. For what they do, they did it brilliantly if that makes sense. I also really liked House of Shakira. I got into them because I was a fan of Novak's two solo albums, so the fa

"Though he was calm and cool for the meet and greet after the set, so he may just be that good of a showman!" I was thinking the same thing - on stage, he was so hyper you almost would think he was on drugs, but yes he was very cool and mellow and gracious at the meet-and-greet. In fact, I brought the booklets from his two pre-H.e.a.t. solo CDs to sign and he was like "I'm very

That's one of my points, Scott. Its like I was thinking about the whole grunge movement this morning. I don't think it was so much that all that music was bad, it was that along with that movement came an ANTI-all-other-rock movement. You want to listen to Nickelback? Fine. You want to listen to Pearl Jam? Fine. But there is no reason that liking those bands has to come with an attitude th

I'll have to watch this. I managed to track down the two Nexx CDs over the last couple of years and love them. It would be great if you guys (and gal) could come back together and make new music. If nothing else, I am sure that Andrew would release it through his MRR label.

I bought the Made in Switzerland live CD/DVD from Impulse Music at MRF4 and watched the DVD on the plane ride home on Monday. Always liked his voice on the albums but now I can see he was a great frontman as well. Definitely sorry I never got to see him and Gotthard live, but glad they documented their live performance on that release. RIP Steve Lee. Hard to believe it has been 4 years. I hope

What about Target with Jimi Jamison? I have often wanted to get ahold of a copy of that and hear the earliest release to feature the golden voice. I loved their reissue of Cobra/First Strike. Or Treat's albums from the 80s. I have copies of them but I'd really enjoy the Rock Candy TREATment of them.

I honestly think if H.e.a.t. could get the right exposure, they could be huge. Even in today's musical climate. I have heard several comments from over the weekend from H.O.M.E. bar staff and people who were just at the H.O.M.E. bar because it was their local hang and not because they were MRF attendees - when they heard H.e.a.t. play, they took notice and paid attention. They liked what they

Ok, first of all, i kind of like Nickelback in the right mood. Second, this guy was inspired by a campaign to get a band to play and that inspiration led him to launch a campaign to get a band to NOT play? What is wrong with people? Seriously, rather than focusing energies on something so negative that tears down someone else, why not concentrate on the music you DO like? Time and money a

Mecca bowed out about two weeks before the fest, unfortunately. Joe was having vocal issues from a surgery. Instead, Andrew booked his son Joey's band Eighty Six Happiness. They were good - and proud papa Joe Vana watched from the crowd and took pictures. Joey got in a little dig on dad...said in keeping with the family tradition, his band's debut album would be out in 2024. Classic...the loo
