I remember Bruce Kulick, who I respect as a musician, saying that Gene is actually better than people give him credit for - to be able to play bass, sing, and run around on stage like he does, with 20 lbs. of costume on, and (per Bruce) never miss a note on bass, indicates he is a good musician. Maybe he will never play intricate runs like Billy Sheehan, but to do all the other stuff he does on

I have loved all of the Khymera albums, except the first one with Steve Walsh. I know he is a legend, and there were some quality songs on that one, but Steve's voice was just so shot by that point. It would have been a killer album if we somehow could have had the Steve Walsh of 1977 doing the vocals on those songs. Just my opinion, no disrespect intended - he did some mighty impressive work e

I was thinking it would have been sort of funny if he, trying to be funny, had said "The ship...out of danger?" near the end. I imagine a few Trekkers will be imagining that Shatner was there when he passed so Nimoy could say "I have been...and always shall be...your friend." Nimoy did one of THE classic death scenes of cinema all those years ago, after all.

Regarding getting a new drummer and letting Deen sing, I recall back after Augeri left and they had the Soto snafu, there was some talk about Deen taking over lead vocals. He was asked about in an interview or something and was like "I'm a drummer, not a lead vocalist" - same sort of thing he says repeatedly on the Revolution Saints making of video on the DVD for the Deluxe Edition.

"Of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most...human." Sad for this news. I really liked his work and would have loved to have met him.

I don't disagree with you Ken, but it is a crappy business model. Blow your wad now, and don't invest in the future. I could counter with - Who is more likely to be capable (i.e. still young enough and healthy enough) of undertaking a big world tour in 15 years - Def Leppard or H.e.a.t.? But if they don't start building interest in these bands now, how likely would it be that a world headlinin

It might help if established bands, like Twisted Sister, would take out newer, younger acts on the scene. For a lot of these bands, that is how it happened for them: there was a time that KISS, Journey, Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, etc. went out opening for bands who had made it like Bob Segar, Ted Nugent, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Ozzy, and so on. That exposure is part of how they built an audience. But who

I will say this - if Forevermore was their swansong as far as new, original material goes, it was a fitting end. They went out on a high note - great album.

Funny enough, Whitesnake is going to be playing in Colorado in June with Night Ranger opening. Given the guitarist switcheroo, I thought that was interesting.

It kind of makes sense though...if this was Coverdale's idea all along, I could see why Aldrich went, "Nah, I'm going to leave" He wants to make new music. To anyone who thought, "He left Whitesnake to do Revolution Saints??" i think it makes more sense now. As for Hoekstra, he got to make some original music in Night Ranger, but he first came to fame as the musical dire

I would have loved to have seen one of their shows with Jimi and Dave on lead vocals. Not sure I'd be interested in them with just Dave. Probably more interested in seeing Pride of Lions again. I wish I could get to Italy and see their tribute to Jimi and Fergie with special guest Marc Scherer.

What gets me is how humble he is about his singing. I got the deluxe edition of Revolution Saints with the DVD that includes a making of, and he repeatedly says things like "I'm a drummer, not a singer", "this took me out of my comfort zone", and "I needed a lot of help because I've never lead sung before" (to which I thought, "yeah except for those two songs y

I have listened to China Sky II a few times now and I really like it. Not a copy of the original for sure, but still good stuff IMO.

If you all haven't checked it out, give Michael Sweet's solo album, I'm Not Your Suicide a try. I've enjoyed Sweet & Lynch and the recent Stryper albums and found this solo effort to be really good too, while offering some different flavors to his musical palette - (i.e. the duet with Elektra Mustaine, daughter of Dave, on Neil Young's Heart of Gold). Amazon has the CD for $9.95 and the MP3

The better name would be "The Arbitrary Popular Music Hall of Fame" - that arbitrary part is important because they do not induct artists strictly based upon popularity or surely Def Leppard and Bon Jovi would be in there. But the popular music tag, instead of Rock N' Roll, would certainly make the induction of Abba and rap artists make more sense. In a legitimately "rock n' roll

By the way, are you the same Terry K. that posted the review of Shooting at the Sun 11 years ago on Amazon? (I just looked up the CD there and the first review was a glowing review from a Terry K in September 2004).

I have Laughing on Judgement Day, got Behind Closed Doors a few weeks ago. I was trying to get Magnificent Seventh and Robert Johnson's Tombstone but haven't been able to find them affordably. I don't know if I have heard of Shooting at the Sun, I'll have to look for that. Thanks! FYI - my other ones are the new one Wonder Days, Bang!, and Backstreet Symphony.

I will say, I have already been looking forward to this - I not only like Toto, I consider Joseph Williams my favorite Toto singer so his official studio album return to the band is highly anticipated for me. But reading Andrew's review makes me so much MORE anxious for late March when I will get this thing in my hands!

Somehow I missed the train on Thunder for years. I actually just got into them a couple of months ago. I have 4 previous CDs now, plus the new one which I received on Wednesday. Great band, great voice, and I am kicking myself for missing them all these years.

The Radio Sun were great backing Paul up AND playing on their own, with a special guest appearance from Paul, the previous day. Not to mention some of the nicest guys around all weekend.

Paul was outstanding at MRF! One of several highlights for me! I was more of a casual fan before but now I would see him again in a heartbeat. Got to meet him too - very nice, very funny guy!

I seem to remember a feature in Metal Edge when they started the tour for this album and it celebrated that they were playing a 2 and a half hour set with a lot of the new album thrown in. But the 2 times I saw them in Denver that tour, they played an hour and a half and it was the standard set that they still play today culled from the first 3 albums. I would love to hear Valley of Lost Souls,

Almost makes me wonder how instrumental Glen Burtnik was in getting Cyclorama made. I know he had a hand in several songs on that one and when I saw them live "Kiss Your A** Goodbye" was the best received of the new songs they played, largely because Glen ran with it (literally, all over the venue). Now that he's out of the band, there is no talk whatsoever about new material. Coinc

I like what Jack said on 24 Strings and Drummer: "as an artist, you need to keep creating. You need to continue to make new music, or you just die." I think the last (and only) album of original material with Gowan in for Dennis was Cyclorama, which I actually enjoyed. I saw them on that tour opening for Journey and REO and was one of the only people who stood up for the new song
