No, it dates from about 1979 - between the "Eve" and "Turn of a Friendly Card" albums. The title "Sicilian Defence" comes from a chess move, and relates to the renegotiation of their contract that APP were trying to resolve with Arista. They released Eve, and the Sicilian Defence was rushed out as a contractual obligation, so that APP could talk to other record comp

Ah yes, the mythical Sicilian Defense album. This is the album the guys made to get them out of their contract with Arista. I wonder what the exec's thought when they first heard it? :-)

Hi Ramsay - well my Mum & Dad live in Ellesmere Port, so the Echo Arena would be an idea, but at the minute it looks like the last date at Wembley with some workmates (and maybe Cardiff too if the finances work out!)

Thanks for this Ramsay. I've never seen Bryan Adams live before either, and the 30th anniversary of Reckless is the perfect time to put that right.

As a change from some of the threads below about new bands being championed which may or may NOT be AOR :-) I thought I'd ask if anyone's found any recent output from well-established popular artists that we reckon would fit into the melodic rock/AOR genre, but it's flown under the radar because it wasn't by a traditional AOR or new scandi band? For instance, Mike Oldfield has a new album out

Wow! Now this IS a surprise! "Turn on the Night" from the debut is one of the great AOR tracks of all time.

I echo the sentiments Woody, and I had a great time too. Really impressed with the venue too. Only problem is that they need a bit of quality control on the bands they book. There were some that had no business being on an AOR stage - I noticed the HRH people use them for a few of their HRH events (one of the prog guys said the same for the Prog stage). Blimey, there was one band that had 10 p

Wow - didn't realise that Foreigner, Yes and Rush could have made an appearance!Interesting comment from Darren Wharton too.... From Wikipedia: Notable absences Bruce Springsteen failed to appear at the Wembley Live Aid concert despite his huge popularity in 1985, later stating that he "simply did not realise how big the whole thing was going to be". He has since expressed r

I worked in the Hadley Centre nearly 20 years ago in upper-atmosphere research, and climate models factored in solar effects even then. A good summary of the different effects of anthropogenic and natural radiative forcing can be found here: https://www.ipcc.unibe.ch/publications/wg1-ar4/faq/wg1_faq-2.1.html

I think the fact that annual CO2 emissions from manmade sources are ten times higher than the average from natural volcanic activity tells you quite a lot about the experiment we're conducting on the Earth's atmosphere.
