http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-38131028 Whilst not a rock artist, the link shows how the live music industry at the top level (in terms of venue size) can pretty much do what they want. For years artist management we're angry at touts reselling tickets at inflated prices, so now the industry & artist are doing exactly the same thing themselves but on an industrial scale, ie r

The Hunter solo is my favourite from his work with Dokken, in fact the entire guitar work on that song is very good indeed. Another solo that i always liked was the accoustic solo on Nothing Left To Say from the Dysfunctional album. Very simple melodically but sublte timing of his phrasing and the harmony/two string part on the solo take that song to another level for me. For some reason there

Good lad, get rid of the whinging gits! We all have ding dongs & differing opinions on this board, but I can't believe that someone's life can be so incomplete because Andrew has not reviewed an album......seriously, that is a major life fail/wanker. Reminds me of playground politics at school, only we're all now 20+ years older......weird

Screw it! Danger Danger Cockroach Revolve Four the hard way Gildersleeves Dawn Skrew it was also the first Danger Danger album that i got (on cassette!)and loved the songwriting, musicianship and overall vibe and have followed them ever since. Even their last release Revolve was strong, one of the few bands that for me haven't really done a bad album.

That makes perfect sense, thanks again for elaborating, & it's far more informative than comments such as 'sonically disappointing'. Always good to hear a drummers point of view.

each to their own, my friend. & yours is the first post about the 'production' of this album that actually makes sense to me, as you have addressed in laymens terms why you don't like it, so fair play to you, and the next time i listen to the album i will be sure to look out for the points that you raise. Me being a guitarist i am probably too focused on the 'front end' mix when listening to

Listened to the album a few times through Spotify today, solid songwriting with some great musicianship throughout. For me the production suites the style of the songs and energy of the performances perfectly, it is both clear and punchy (not to mention that awesome lead guitar tone) probably Teds best work outside of Danger Danger. For those that can't comment on this release without seeming to

Agree with Poison's Hollyweird being totally disappointing (understatement). A band who for me grew better with each release in terms of songwriting, this one however was & still is utter garbage.

What a wierd final announcement. Vince Neil is a big coup for the festival for sure, and will sell a bucketload of tickets to Crue fans, but doing just a Motley Crue 'best of' set at an AOR/melodic rock event? I went to the final Crue tour and it was good for a party and that was that. I can't get my head around this one, seems a bit bizarre to me, or is just me?

I wasn't at the Wembley show but i saw them in Sheffield on the UK leg of the tour, along with Thunder opening i think, and as mentioned Crown of Thorns plus Van Halen with Hagar. It was an incredibly hot day & I remember that there was hardly any shade to be found with the Don Valley stadium. I think Always had been released 6 months before & was huge here in the UK, bringing Jon a hug

I think that they visited Nottingham the after the London gig, signing session at Way Ahead records & a gig at Rock City. Apparently the TV show Raw Power showed some of the UK tour, would love to see that footage as this was a year before i finally bought Screw It! and became my favourite band, still are

Not sure why some bands continue to make videos, not just these guys but a whole load of ageing melodic rock bands probably doing more harm to their record sales by showing themselves up like this lot. This one gets points for being particularly amusing, looks like they are all very camera shy and then there's the guy with no top on.....just why?

I've always been a casual Aerosmith fan, like Pump and Get a Grip, plus had a greatest hits type album of earlier stuff. Saw them at Donington in 1994 and wasn't impressed, but at Download 2014 they blew me away (no pun intended). There's a DVD of the show which I'd recommend, also available on Sky arts chanel. So much so that we're going to the Sunday only of Download this year just for Aerosm

I'll be sure to check it out. It's easy to see now how tours can sell out 'in minutes', it's because 90% of tickets are shifted en mass, to a subsidiary company. The Gn'R tickets, plus the inevitable extra dates announcements will inflate them prices through the roof, as it we're. And to think some of my old mates yesterday moaning about the 70 odd quid price of a ticket for Wembley, I thought y

'May result in being turned away', call me cynical but i can't imagine anyone being refused entry to the gig. However, something does need to be done to stop ticketmaster selling a large percentage of gig tickets to it's subsidiary companies (get me in.com etc) who then immediately slap incredible price hikes on them. To me that is just corporate ticket touting, & a government investigation

Spot on with the Olly Murs reference, both in songwriting & vocal style, someone who has sold his soul to his record company only for even the mainstream pop audience to find him and his music too 'manufactured '. Each to their own and all that, but this sounds like an Oly Murs tribute act, maybe there's more to this guy but life's too short for this.

First time I'd seen Reckless Love live, only knew a few of their songs before the show & was very impressed with their showmanship, not many bands can interact with an audience as well as they do. Won't be rushing out to buy their albums, but as a live act they are very impressive, dare i say far better live band than their albums might suggest? Definitely! Thanks for sharing your video, &

Do they still do that? I miss when it was actually a proper rock club and the regulars to the club night had to wait in one of the other bars within the club until the band has finished, & then it was worth hanging around for after the gig as the music was great, i dread to think what shite sort of themed nights they have there now

Going to this gig tomorrow in Nottingham Doors are 6:30pm with just one support act, I'm wondering if anyone knows what time Reckless Love are due on stage, or can give input to other headlining acts at this venue recently ? I'm guessing that with such an early opening time that there might be a curfew for live music? Being part of the Rock City venue, I've learnt over the years that phoning/em

Agreed, Johnny's vocals seem to get better with each album, something that cannot be said of many singers in this genre. I saw this video of him doing a queen song a few weeks back, the guy sure has incredible power & control https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=dpu-1kKh5JQ

I must've missed that post, the few reports that i have seen have been very positive, although most mentioning the surprisingly short set, which seems odd considering the body of work that Mitch has to choose from, and makes me wonder why there's two support bands on most nights of the tour.
