Sorry if I offended anyone on here by using the term 'wankers', but It was really only an off the cuff comment.......;-) Maybe I said such an 'insultive' word in an attempt to portray my disappointment that I won't get to see the band next week (apologies for my council estate upbringing reaction to my initial disappointment).........but to be honest , I could not give a *naughty offensive word

Just heard that Skin have canceled their appearance at the Download festival UK next weekend? What wankers! One of the half dozen bands that I was actually bothered about seeing.........anyone got any inside info as to why?

To be fair, DC has for the past 25 years at least surrounded himself with some of the finest musicians available.............i guess that it's called good business sense, & who in their right mind can blame him?......

Pretty much sums the evening up.....I felt that Journey didn't have the same rapport with the audience as either Thunder or Whitesnake, maybe thats just down the experience of each of the frontmen. I've heard reviews saying again that Coverdale was struggling vocaly, but to be honest I thought he sounded better than he had on the last few tours (youtube footage from this gig confirms this), alth

I went to the Notingham show last night, as said elsewhere Thunder & Whitesnake were very good, Journey just couldnt follow, both in terms of stage presence or delivery of their set. the Audience slowly dwindled and by the halfway mark into Journeys set, it was apparent that most wer not there to see them, and the ones that did stay were mostly sat down. ive got to admit I was pretty bored a

Best Poison album for me was Native Tongue, tracks like 'untill you suffer some', 'stand' &,'body talk' were/are great songs...i guess once that Kotzen shagged a founding members wife that his days were numbered...lol, but musically they were great

Like it alot. Kotzen plays some great guitar on that track, shame he can't play with a little bit more refrain during his solo. No denying his ability, but i prefer his style more when he's not playing a million notes per second, but I still think that his Poison album was a great mix between technique and melody.

Plus if your looking gourd heavy yet still melodic metal, try Story of The Year, Blessed By broken Heart, A Day To Remember......all great song writers, with good musicianship, current/heavy rock yet still have melodic singalong chorus'. Maybe a but too EMO for some of the metal heads, but I love,it. Paramore's RIOT album is also a corker

Ccowboys from Hell and Vulgar Display of Power, both great metal records. After these two they went a bit too downtuned/grind for my tastes. Old Dimebag (R.I.P) was a great guitarist, he was a huge fan of van halen and KISS fan, but he managed to reign in his technique/ability to suit. I'm certain if it want for Anselmo.being a drug smoking idiot they would have gone on to achieve greatness. sa

I guess that the labels went to see their live set and couldnt figure out what the fuss was about. Great in the studio, most boring live band I have ever seen...and I've seen some bad ones, shocking!!! Especially when you consider the quality of the material ....it takes something to make these songs sound un-incredible....yet they will continue to dissapoint audiences for the last 20 or so years

I agree totally. Forget modern day 'human rights' nonsense (which seems to be the used in the defence,of wierdos), andrew can do whatever the fuck he wants on here....it is his manor, upset him and your out. Much the same as reality,upset your boss/politicians/law enforcement then be prepared to face the consequences. Personally I couldnt give a flying fuck, behave or your out...landlords prero

Just wondered has,anyone else found this annoying message that says that youtube viewers cannot watch certain videos if they are watching from mobile devices? I do most of my viewing through either my mobile phone or tablet, yet it seems that more and more I am less able to view youtube content, which is frustrating as I recently tried to check out newer artists luke Alterbridge or stone sour, b

Al sounds foreign to me, as in I've heard the band names buy couldnt tell you a song that they play, I'm.afraid. If you can recommend some of the said bands best material I'd like to check them out. Cheers

I hear,you, I'm not going to MR3, but was fortunate enough to see Ted play the UK a few times at around the same time as he did the Melodica albums. Seen him play 'Hardest part of love' and 'its not enough' during his shows, plus some awesome Bone Machine tracks (missing you and life & times). I don't know what his current solo set list is, but he used to play a good mix of solo, Danger Dang

Got to be Van Halen, their are so many licks n' riffs to play around with....plus my mate s often help out with extra sets of hands, good for whammy bar dives or '20 finger' tapping techniques, whilst often too many around us are trying to be cool. I always laugh like a kid whenever I see someone tune their air guitar in the middle of a gig, hilarious!!!

Good solid album,a previously said if it was released as a solo release I'm sure alot more people would have at least been prepared to give it a chance, unfortunatley alot of people were wanting it to fail purely because he was using the GnR name.

Eyes, Takara - Eternal Faith (?), Yngwie - Marching Out, WET - debut...........never really got excited about Talisman, Soul SirkUS was poor, solo stuff never really managed to achieve potential. The guy has a great voice, just not too many great songs.

Yes, I would love to see Van Halen return to the UK. I saw them support Jovi here in 1995 with Hagar on vocals and they were just incredible. Was hoping that Andy Copping could persuade them to play Download festival but they seem, for whatever reason, to ignore the UK. ....its a shame, cuz all the old boys tell me how good they used to be with Roth....i guess the UK just doesnt give a fuck anyom

Is,nowhere near a live performance, just the same as their last live DVD. Although, to be fair, I'm thinking that the Cov has earned the right to do such a thing and I'm sure that no-one who buys this actually believes in the 'live' claim. It does throw one question up tho, was any 'live' release actually LIVE? Very possibly not........but at the end of the day does it actually matter? but neit

Yeah, he certainly was a talent. This stands out in my mind as his thoughts toward 'Cherry Pie' as a song, he seemed bloated, slurring his words, close to tears at the end, certainly not in a fit state of mind.....real sad to view. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=OR1xpknCHCQ Like I said before, I cant help but feel that during this period of his life alcohol had turned him into someone looking

Of course he didn't, I rather meant more like did he hit the drink due to the huge success that he achieved (on the back of the doing 'Cherry Pie') and then lost just as quickly as the musical tide turned in a different direction.....or maybe he always drank?

I can't help but think though, that Jani was not in the right frame of mind when he did all of the interviews where he said he regretted writing.Cherry Pie, alcohol had messed him up to the point where he said something that people now take as being the absolute truth. I'm not sure if anyone's statements whilst under the influence of alcohol should be taken as a truth. Is hate to think that wri

I love Cherry Pie, it's intentionally tongue in cheek and succeeds in being so overly rediculous.....'i mixed the batter, as she licked the beater'.....its pure throw away bubblegum stuff, much like the steel Panther style. Not every lyric has to have some profound intellectual meaning, I think throwaway pop stuff works much better than the 'lost love, hearts bleeding, vomit inducing' stuff tha

The Blessed album really rejuvenated my interest in music in general, it managed to capture the energy and enthusiasm of the band, which is something that the majority of my favorite bands have lost along the way. The thread the other day about songwriting standards being lowered made me think that a great song played without any passion or fire is a wasted opportunity, and is what has happene

I'm trying to.find some new bands to listen to, the aor/MR scene is dying a painfull death, so seeing if there are any exiting rock bands to check.out. The last 2 albums that I got were Blessed By a Broken Heart and the latest Stone Sour release, both highly enjoyable. Also going to Download this year, not a great lineup but looking to check.out some different bands.

Personal opinion is- could not give a flying fuck. Dual headliner tour with Whitesnake this summer, not going cuz Journey do not interest me without Steve Perry. Sad, but unfortunately true. I love this style of music, but will not... and refuse to spend good money on the latest Journey project. Woulda be interested to see what type of venues they could play if they weren't sandwiched between two
