ooh, good call...I was thinking the musical and vocal style sounded familiar but I couldn't quite place it. But since you mention that, it does remind me of the Magnificent.

Here's an idea...DL did the Yeah! covers album highlighting songs that influenced them. They should do Yeah!2 featuring covers of Loud Lion and Grand Design, i.e. artists they influenced. Could be the best DL album in years!

I'm glad to see Dave Friday (the singer) is on this. I enjoyed his vocals fronting Talon at MRF2 a few years back and wondered what became of him.

Ha, wow. I know to a lot of people Nugent comes off as a dick but I've always liked the guy. He speaks his mind and probably has a point. Its a shame though that guys like that hunting autographs for profit ruin it for those of us that just want our stuff signed because we think it is cool. I have a number of signed CD covers and have no idea what they are worth because they are not for sa

Ah, man, Harry...sorry you have bad stories like that, but at least you seem to have a sense of humor about it. And gotta give you props for thick skin, you keep making great music and letting them put your picture on the CD covers. Lol. My Harry Hess story is I met you and the rest of Harem Scarem at MRF3, and you were nice and gracious, signing my Mood Swings II and Just Another Day CDs.

The freshest meets in my mind are from MRF 3 - I'd say just about everyone I met (and I met most of them) were very nice. I'd say Eric Martin, Steve Augeri, Paul Bonrud and Coldspell were the absolute nicest guys. I got to meet Robert Tepper on his way out, very nice guy but I didn't get to take a pic or have him sign anything because he really was heading out the door. Gary Schutt was pretty

Maybe they'll do a naming contest like N.O.W. did. How about...Have Extra Adrenaline Today? I know, you probably wanted to know what the actual guys in the band meant by naming that way huh? Always wondered myself...

Love Lincoln Brewster's stuff. My fiancee was surprised when i told her he got his start playing with Steve Perry during his "For the Love of Strange Medicine" days.

Life is Beautiful...excellent track! I was surprised to find such a life affirming, uplifting song on a CD from Nikki Sixx called "The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack".

There are videos on You Tube for the first singles from each at least. A Shot at Redemption from HEAT and Feel What I Feel from Gotthard.

I hadn't heard that Turbulence song before...i like it, thanks. Trying to think of songs in that particular vein that are uplifting. For me, a lot of the examples that come to mind are Christian songs. Not sure if that would be your friend's cup of tea, but here are a few that come to mind: Good To Be Alive - Skillet Salvation - Skillet Miracle - Third Day Your Grace Finds Me - Matt Re

Insightful and funny Joe. I was looking at his Wiki myself yesterday...i know he did a lot of work with Fergie and wonder if that is where the "i worked with Toto" business came from. If anyone would know whether he worked with Toto the band, it would be Lukather and even he called TD out on that claim. I did a quick fact check, his Wiki said he worked on David Archuleta's (American Ido

My standard for "too mellow" is Peter Criss' snorefest One For All...as long as it has more pep than that i'd be up for it. But it would have to be something outstanding for me to rank it anywhere near his stuff with Journey or even his previous solo works (which he himself may be aware that some people would have that stance and could be why he has taken so long to do anything new for

I gotta say i am loving Frontiers CD/DVD live combo packages. The latest from WET and Heart are great, and I've really enjoyed others they've put out from The Poodles, REO, Pretty Maids, and Whitesnake. I was thinking, what others would I like to see (limiting it to artists that are on Frontiers). My #1 would be House of Lords. After seeing the current lineup at MRF3, I think a live CD/DVD

I am so sorry for your loss. I've always liked that song myself so in my opinion, your daughter had great taste. Music really does become something more when we can connect it to something so significant, doesn't it?

Personally love the WET live CD/DVD...virtually the same show we got at MRF3 (minus the Lars Safsund guest performance of The Great Fall). Loving the new House of Lords and Overland releases too. I am liking the Heart release more than i thought i would given that i am one of those fans who much prefer their 80's material to the stuff they have been putting out in recent years. But i agree

So his talent extends to making live drums sound like robotic, programmed drum machines? Um...wow? Ok, just my two cents, i'm certainly no music producer or anything but i have good ears and have heard way better drum sounds on just about any other rock CD i have.

Yes indeed, Tom "MIT", "no synthesizers were used in the recording of this album" Scholz used programmed drums on the new Boston CD. That classic guitar sound is still there but the lack of real drums sucks a lot of energy out of the music.

Wow...that would be a show. Haven't seen KISS since the Psycho Circus tour with Peter and Ace. Wonder what's up with Paul...is he just going for broke every night until he can't do it anymore? Seems like he maintained his voice very well for many years, decades even, but in recent times it seems like it has deteriorated. Def Leppard, I have not seen live since the early 90's. And the closest

Oh, I wish you could have had a chat with Tom Scholz about all of this before he made Life, Love, Hope. I was surprised with what he did with that one because he has turned out some terrific sounding music in his time. But I think the programmed drums really hurt that one.

Oddly enough, i left Toto off my list but they are one of the prime examples of the completism i spoke of. For years, all i had from them was a cassette of Past to Present. But around the end of the 90's, after growing weary of all the gloomy, angry rock of that decade i threw myself headlong into melodic rock music. I've since gotten all of Toto's studio albums, two of their live albums, Kimb

I usually get anxious enough for new music that i end up listening to samples if they become available. That being said, there are a number of artists that i would buy the CD without hearing a note in advance: Journey Dream Theater Richard Marx HEAT WET Magnum The Poodles Shinedown Alter Bridge/Creed/Scott Stapp/Tremonti Chris Tomlin (a bit off topic for this board, but he is one o

Like a lot of others, i don't love Dug's voice. But the music has a pretty cool vibe, so i am on the fence on this one. I am very much a vocals oriented person so to overlook the vocals, the music really needs to grab me. On a side note, anyone know why it is KXM? Not as obvious an acronym as LRS or WET.

I actually picked his new one up at the Family Christian Store down the road from the HOME bar the day after MRF3 before I headed home from Chicago. One more great bit of music to cap off a long weekend of live music and new CDs.
