Oh, and forgot to say, I dyed my own hair green early in 2015. 1st time in my life I'd ever dyed it. Figured better late than ever, eh? Yay for middle age rebellion, haha. Figured I should while I still have hair. And maybe as a partial tribute to you guys & your song...maybe ;-)

Hey, sorry for the late reply (but not as late as yours, haha), but thanks for checking in with us :-) Someone (sorry, I forget who) hooked me up with some of those old songs I was looking for. Didn't know you guys used to be called Push - cool. Still listen to all the songs (that I have) on occasion - underrated stuff. Cheers! Edit: Oh, and forgot to say, I dyed my own hair green early in

When bands get political, I'm definitely biased toward liberal/progressive bands like Green Day and to a lesser extent Bon Jovi. And unapologetically so. I feel you've got to stand for something in this life, whether others "get" you or support you or not. After all, if standing for something was easy, it wouldn't exactly be taking a stand, would it? Just my .02. Though when mo

Anyone checked out Phil X's (Bon Jovi guitarist) solo stuff AKA his band The Drills? Great stuff. Saw a couple topics mentioning him here, but nowhere near what he deserves. Killer hard rock meets power pop/pop punk - basically the best of both worlds. Manages to sound modern and classic at the same time. Reminds me a bit of fellow shredder Paul Gilbert's solo stuff, complete with those quir

Thanks for the heads up. Didn't know they had a new album coming out (even if its mostly old/reworked stuff). Usually I have a friend to keep me up to date on such things...guess he was asleep at the wheel this time lol Cool album title. Seriously, how many songs do they have with "clown" in the title? lol And yeah, it might be mostly old/reworked stuff, but I have a TON of their e

Wait, Tamplin was mentioned in the press release? Just read it twice and I don't see his name...am I missing something? I liked his solo stuff back in the day (mid 90s) when I was in high school and pretty big into "Christian Rock". One of the better artists of the genre IMO, especially his self titled album (his guitar player was a madman). He's Sammy Hagar's cousin, right?

Very cool. I won't lie, I was majorly bummed after...certain events that happened early last month, been hiding in shame and seclusion from this place, licking my wounds, haha. Seriously, I was pretty disillusioned and wasn't sure I'd post here again. Major FTW mode. However, this is great news to hear. Makes me hopeful about life again. Of course, if you know me, what I really want is

Henry Paul's the man. Love his stuff with BlackHawk (how I got into him, plus I think the 1st or 2nd country band I ever liked), as well as the songs I've heard from Its About Pride. Hope to catch an Outlaws show someday as I've never seen them or BlackHawk, but I've heard other BlackHawk guys are in the line-up (obviously not Van, though - RIP) and they're known to play BlackHawk songs.

I like the way this guy thinks. I was worried everyone here would be voting for Trump, as he was apparently "cool in the 80s" or something, like Michael Douglas in that Wall Street movie, haha. Probably more like Patrick Bateman from American Psycho. Plus he's supposedly a "man's man", the type of "alpha male" us guys are supposed to look up to and aspire to b

I like the current incarnation of 'Tailz with Rob Wylde (Teenage Casket Company) as vocalist. But only because I'm a huge Rob/TCC fan. If you can track down the song "All the Girls In the World" from Tailz' latest album Blast, give it a listen. Insanely catchy, hard power pop type sound that's as good as anything by TCC. Catchy af. Wish the rest of the album sounded like that. Hop

Avril Lavigne > Adam Levine :-) Can't say I ever much cared for that band or Adam's voice. That said, I do really like Adam's songs in the 2 John Carney films he's contributed songs to - Begin Again and Sing Street. Carney also wrote/directed Once, which won the Oscar for Best Song. Irish bloke and a pretty great filmmaker if you haven't checked his stuff out, though it certainly won

Thanks for the heads up, pardner. No judgments from me about Lit's apparent country turn. I don't usually actively seek out "country rock" artists (so much music, so little time), but when an artist I already like ventures into that territory, like Bon Jovi or Paul Laine with Dark Horse, I seem to take a shine to it more often than not. And that mostly is how I get into new genres of

I realize now I may have overrated this album just a tad, since I was so starved for Butch to return to the RAWK lol So yeah, I'll have to play it more times to see if I like it more than his latest rock album The Spade. But yes, I do really like it. And yes, it is "rock" enough for me (though I'm easy to please in that regard). And I'm a big time Lyrics Guy and think Butch is writi

Well put. Yes, Butch is a genius and while I haven't seen him live in years, I still remember those acoustic shows when he was supposedly touring LOSC but in reality mostly played brand new stuff that would go on to become Letters. Best shows I'd ever been to and still unmatched. Him, the crowd, sorry if it sounds cliche but it was just...magic. Made me a fan for life (of the man and the arti

Warning: This post contains lethal doses of positivity. Read at your own risk, Jorn (and other likeminded types)... :-) This rock fan just had a rare (relatively) great week, so I just wanted to give a shout-out to Frank Pino Jr from Waltham and Rob Lane from Teenage Casket Company for hooking me up with band t-shirts in the mail this week! Always on the prowl for new, cool t-shirts to wear

Like Terry said, that's a fantasy job for me. So congrats for (kinda) sticking it to the man ;-) I've gotten to be a pretty big Rick fan the last few years (better late than never). Overall like his "modern era" stuff a tiny bit more than the oldies, some holds up better than others, but some of the "classics" are great, too. Though you know if I lived up there, I'd be

Totally agreed. Springsteen and Petty fan here, too (plus some country). And don't get me started on the awesomeness of M3 and Butch. I just made a very lengthy post in the previous Butch Stay Gold topic from 5-6 days ago (late to the party per usual), agreeing with one of those posters (the only one) who was positive toward the album and Butch. Since your topic didn't exist then when I f

Glad to see there's someone here I (mostly) agree with. Good post, mate. Someone from the UK gets it, at least. I can always count on your country to have good music taste, as I just got my Teenage Casket Company (great hard power pop band, if you all miss M3 check 'em out) shirt in the mail from there :-) Unfortunately I have no excuses to explain the music taste of the shite bandits from my

Wow, just listened to those first 2 pre-release singles and, if this is any indication, this band just keeps getting better. Excellent pop-rock with a nod to classic melodic rock as well. Catchy, radio friendly (living up to their name!), and most importantly damn good. And holy crap are they prolific after Jason & Steve took so long between the Square One album (check that out, too pe

Decent song, which is the way I'd describe most Jovi songs of the last 15 years or so. Not great, not bad, it just kinda...is lol Best part is probably the solo. Most of the music and lyrics sound like your typical mash-up of past Jovi anthems as others have said. Not a big fan of their "jock anthem" type songs, since ironically I don't hear the "fire" when I hear songs li

Not familiar with Blackboard Jungle, but I LOVE Electric Angels. Truly one of the most underrated bands from the "hair metal" (or whatever you want to call it) era. I guess they were a bit late to the party, but some of the members were involved with the power pop band Candy (great stuff, too) before EA formed. Jonathan Daniels (songwriter, bass)...truly one of the most gifted songwr

Yup...I had a couple awesome people send me the Attraction 65 song. Thanks! Apologies - should have replied here before to let you all know. Plus they sent some Blue Tears stuff. And I agree - total Def Lep/Bon Jovi. Definitely like what I hear so far :-) Makes sense, since the Michael Sweet CD Gregg produced had that sound as well.

Anyone checked out director/writer Cameron Crowe's new Showtime series Roadies? JJ Abrams is also a producer. The first episode has already aired and the second episode hit the net a couple days ago (and is also available for Showtime subscribers On Demand). First episode should be free On Demand for ANYONE with cable. Its about the road crew of a fictional American rock band. Doesn't so

Hey all - Lately I've really been getting into Gregg Fulkerson's (RIP) band Attraction 65. I found all the songs on Youtube and been listening to them. Great stuff, especially "In Another Life" (so damn powerful - really relate and that chorus - just wow). However, I can't seem to find "Eden" from the album anywhere.

Fuck Hate (and yes, I know I'm late, so I thought I'd bust some sweet rhymes if you've got the time). 'Nuff said. Should be way more positivity, tolerance, empathy, kindness, love, and human compassion in the world than there currently is today. Love is the answer. If that makes me sound "simple", I don't care.

I like the series so far. Though it will be hard to top TWD as that's arguably my all time fave show (though Game of Thrones has moved right up there, too) and my #1 all time fave zombie thing ever (was never a HUGE fan until TWD). And, unlike TWD, I haven't checked out the comic yet. All caught up on TWD comic - I've basically become a huge Kirkman fan (at least for TWD) :-) But yeah, Outcas
