Thanks, Ryan. When I was a kid, I guess it wasn't the mostly manly thing to admit liking OOTW era Europe, at least as compared to bands like Gn'R. So when peers would ask me about Europe, I'd kind of play the middle ground. "They're ok" lol However, now that I'm older and more comfortable being myself and with my tastes, I can totally admit being a sucker for that sound. So yeah,

Did not know "Look Away" is a "lost" Europe song...very interesting. And ironic, considering that whenever I hear Chicago's version (and I love the song btw, sucker for those big ballads), I think "this would make a damn fine Europe song" :-) Seems stylistically right up their alley (well, in their more commercial late 80s era). So I'm not surprised they recorded

Not on iTunes where you are? Weird, thought you were American like me :-) Sucks you can't hear them, then...they sound awesome. But no, don't worry about misleading me...if not for your post, I'd never have checked and been led to my iTunes...so I was glad to be "mislead" ;-)

Oh, I see. No snippets on the main page, but after some hunting, I did find them on iTunes. And...best part...its already available on iTunes!!! O_O Woah. Nice little surprise there :-) Was NOT expecting that. Time to check out those snippets :-)

Bottom line: like I said, I've been through a lot of shit these past few years, so I don't need additional shit when I'm trying to be nice and post about stuff that I dig here. Ok, NOW that's all I'm gonna say or read re: this, since I don't have time for negativity...hope my message got through :-)

Hear Hear! Full report required :-) Oooohhhh...the snippets have been posted? So far I've only heard the title track and "When You Said You'd Be the One". And I really dig the title track (the other's really grown on me, too). ::heads off to the front page to investigate::

Thanks, Terry. I don't have time for negativity, so I don't know what else was said after my posts, but I just figured, just in case anything was said, I'd be the bigger man, explain where I was coming from, and move on. Sorry for the delay in posting it, just took me awhile to get to it and word it properly, making sure I was level headed. And I meant to say, I only mentioned my Dad initi

Glad you liked it :-) I still haven't gotten any bites on all my inquiries re: their older stuff, though :-/ The MP3s were posted at one time in a Blog post that google led me to, but the download links have long since expired. In addition to their Soundcloud page, if you check their Myspace page (yeah, I know, Myspace), they have another great song called "This Summer". Actually,

Since I mentioned fathers who have passed on in this topic, and since its still high up on the main page, I figured I'd also take this time to follow-up on my DarkHorse/Paul Laine response posts from a few weeks ago, in that topic I created, to anyone interested. To hopefully set the record straight. I posted most of this in that topic as well just now, but its an old topic and far from the mai

Guess I got a little upset there. Apologies to Andrew if I lost my cool a bit. Not gonna read any responses to those posts of mine, since I don't want to get upset again. I'll just say that, first, sorry I was so harsh on Paul's first album. That was an overreaction (hey, I'm an emotional guy) just meant to prove a point. Yes, I find the album derivative and maybe a bit pandering at time

Anyone here know of/a fan of the band Junk? UK power pop/pop punk...I guess the operative term back in the day was "nu-breed". For fans of 40Ft Ringo, Waltham, London Calling, Rubber, Son Of Dork, Nathan King, and Taxiride. Had a bunch of songs on soundtracks (first heard them in Dance Of The Dead)...you can check out their stuff here. My fave is "Life Is Good" - just damn

Speaking of vintage footage, I watched it again last night (gotta get my money's worth while its still available in my On Demand rental library lol) and it actually starts with a brief SouthGang interview clip - very cool. Also some very touching stuff toward the end regarding his Dad and the Dad's health condition (RIP Big Butch). Interesting how it was touched on so much and now that his

Speaking of Video On Demand, while I'm at it, the documentary on Butch Walker, "Out Of Focus", has been released there to rent. Not free, unlike Holliston :-/ But not too expensive either, considering other brand new On Demand titles. Its available on Verizon FIOS, the one I have, not sure about the other providers. Really good documentary, treated myself to it last night for my

The GWAR topic gave me the idea for this. Does anyone else watch the TV show Holliston? Its an original FearNet series. Kind of a sitcom/horror hybrid that also satirizes sitcoms (canned laughter in the wrong places, etc). Often has guest stars from the horror genre. Dee Snider has a recurring role as Lance Rockett, frontman for Van Halen tribute band Diver Down (or is it Dyver?). Also ha

Yeah, I understand, I have a hard time getting into sitcomes with canned laughter, too. I guess after awhile I'm kind of able to drown it out. Funny you mentioned it not being in the right spots...I actually think they do that on purpose, as kind of a spoof on sitcoms. An inside joke I guess. But yeah, really like the show...good mix of horror, comedy, satire, and heart. All the episodes are

Yeah, I must have just figured it was a problem with my cassette and didn't think much of it. Certainly didn't spoil the enjoyment of the song for me. I think some people get a bit too anal about stuff like that IMO (if it ruined the whole song for them I mean, not just that they noticed it in the first place). Like I said, my ears aren't super sharp like that I guess, where I can tell the dif

Only heard 1 GWAR song so I can't really comment, but I love seeing Oderus Urungus in the show Holliston on FearNet. At least twice now he's had the quote of the episode :-) Seems like a funny guy. Anyone else seen that show? Just searched the Noticeboard and didn't see any posts. Blew my mind, since they give it up so much for 80s rock. Dee Snider himself even has a weekly role, playing

Anyway, I totally get where Tony Mills is coming from. True artists (the ones not just in it for cash, drugs, and groupies) need to create. They don't just want to play the same songs over and over (especially if they didn't even have a hand in them). Unless you're KISS, I guess. But even they put out new records on occasion. It'd be like if Butch Walker had never left SouthGang and they

Sounds like Blabbermouth.net was trying to incite something that wasn't there. Does OP work for them? Talk about leading article headlines and having an agenda to paint a guy in a not so favorable light. And don't you guys love reading the FB response posts that accompany articles like this? Talk about dicks lol And is this the same website that was trying to start shit between Alice Cooper'

Ok, I just listened to the end of "Love Don't Come Easy" on Youtube (too lazy to hunt for the CD or scan my computer files lol) and...I think I know what you're talking about now. "Cassette Slur" is a good way to describe it. Doesn't sound too distracting though, I had to actively listen for it to detect it, but I can see how others might feel that way. Love that song btw..

Sounds like a cool project. Haven't kept up with Dokken/Lynch in years and I'm probably more of a casual King's X fan, but I don't know, there's just something about dUg that really appeals to me. Seems like a really interesting and cool guy I could relate to - I feel like we could hang out and have deep, awesome conversations about stuff :-) Anyone else feel that way? Just seems really open

Huh...never noticed. Production seemed fine to me, but then again, I don't really have "musician ears" and know next to nothing about producing, mastering, engineering, mixing, etc, so... Plus I might have just been too young to care. Never had a problem with his voice like some people do either...its rock n' roll, so I think his voice is fine. Its unique and gets the job done. And

Only heard his first 2 albums, but for me, "Over You" will always be my fave Daughtry song. Monster hooks. That's the song that finally convinced me to take a chance and give his stuff an honest listen. Vs just seeing him as an American Idol guy (don't watch much TV) or just another post-grunge singer (not always a fan of that gruff vocal style). Saw him open for Bon Jovi shortl

Totally agree...another great post :-) Have you thought of the specific song yet? And its not just this song, but "I'm Not Running Anymore" sounds like Springsteen as well. I will say, while I'm a bigger fan of Jovi overall, I was into Springsteen at an earlier age, as a kid, parents and MTV got me into him, and still find him better as a lyricist. The closest Jon came to rivali

On a lighter note, I like how they did the video for the whole song, outro included, and not just a “single edit”. Not sure how commercially viable going it this route was, but pretty cool nonetheless. If they were so contrived, wouldn't they have been "3 minutes and done?" Like you guys? :-P

I agree with people saying you shouldn't call music "shit" just because you don't personally like it. Sounds too much like a personal attack. They probably just didn't like when I called them out on their weak ass shit posts in the past, so they post a petty reply here where I'm more likely to read it (since I figured in the other topic their reply would be typical internet tough guy
