From my hazy memory, they were 2 scrapped projects between No More Tears and Ozzmosis - one called Ozzyland and one called X Ray, I think Steve Vai was involved at some point. At the time, there was a Black Sabbath re-union on the cards after Ozzy played with the band again on his tour (which made Dio quit and Rob Halford take his place), which derailed the projects and when this fell apart Ozzy

Like the band, but their last album was hamstrung by a run of tweeny American Idol style ballads. Rest of it was good.

Thought the audience was dire in Manchester - flat, reserved, and most looked like they were waiting for a bus (more accurately, waiting for Forever Young, as two blokes next to me ignored the first encore to fiddle with their video settings on their phones to video it). Good band performance tho.

Went to both London and Chester - my 8th and 9th Threshold gigs. London had a good turnout and was a lively gig, Chester was even better. Hopefully this will get the message out - spoke to Karl groom afterwards and he said their booker is in Austria so the north of England may aswell be Outer Mongolia, but told him that Riverside also got a decent turnout in Manchester so there an audience for t

I was really underwhelmed by them on the last tour - something I was really looking forward to as I loved their albums, but given the namechecking of Springsteen, Petty etc I was expected a bit of showmanship, but instead got a surly, awkward performance from Fallon, who when not singing sulked by the drum riser facing the other guitarist. Having a third guitarist also didn't help, making the ban

Judas Priest still stand by Ripper aswell - there's live footage of him on their website. In contrast to Maiden - who while acknowledging Blaze in interviews, they put Bruce-sung live versions of the X-Factor and Virtual XI on compilations not the originals which seems like a real slap in the face but shows where their heads are at in terms of business. As for Hackett, a doc on BBC prime time

Couldn't find it today - neither of the big supermarkets are stocking it despite buying the Motorhead, Alice, Rush and previous Slash ones there. That said, stuffing the cd with music is one thing, but does the mag make the extra cost worthwhile. 3x140 page mags on one guy is a bit much, the last one was scraping the bottom of the barrel, has much happened since? Is it worth waiting for the co

Moho burnt down a few years ago (killed a firefighter trying to put it out) - dreadful venue with that fire escape cutting off the view. Now sure what the issue is with Club Academy - seen quite a few great gigs in there. The one issue with it was the position of the sound desk, but they've moved that back. I'll go to this - not seen Tyketto since Steve Augeri was in the band, and not seen

Keith has good nights and bad nights, but he controls the tempo of the band, so if he's off, everyone's off.

Also, I think that he respects his musicians a lot, so doesn't over-shadow them - they give the music its colour and not there as a platform for him to showboat over, despite his name being on the banner. He also played the pointed 'Tin Pan alley' with its 'My peers may flirt with cabaret, some fake their rebel yell" aimed at the Rod's and Micks of his generation, so dwelling on past glories

Disagree with that, he looked well into it, banging his drum and dancing about (not quite like the dad dancing of Justin Adams or his son grooving away at the front of the stage). What were you expecting - which side of the crowd can scream the loudest? as for the vocals, he's tempered it to suit the music and his age, something Coverdale hasn't, and comes of worse for it. Bought a ticket to h

Trombone Shorty is a New Orleans player with a mix of rock, r'n'b and jazz, had cameos in Treme: Trombone Shorty on Jools Holland Gillian Welch is a folk/country singer, featured in Oh Brother Where Art Thou Time The Revelator Taj Mahal is one of the elder statesmen of blues that's still going - still making well received records that mix it up with Tex Mex, World music etc, so not st

I'll echo the love for the Mule - after a fine start they went a bit dull with High And Mighty and the attrocious detour into reggae with A Mighty High, but last tow albums have been great, the last one is a good experiment with one cd with Warren singing as usual but with another with the same songs sung by guests - Dr John, Elvis Costello, Glenn Hughes. Jim Jones (My Morning Jacket) sings the a

Its gone up a lot - but it does vary so its not just the venues. Looking at the Manchester Academy email, and it varies from £14 for Halestorm to £28 for Extreme, UB40 etc - seems like some older, more-successful-in-the-past bands charge more: Black Crowes, Lenny Kravitz, Mr Big have all been quite expensive for that size venue, but I read that bands are taking a bigger cut of the ticket prices

Hard to think of one that's genuinely mainstream - The Temperance Movement got to No 12 in the album charts, but no mainstream airplay so it dropped like a stone. Airbourne's debut wasn't a high charter, but they managed to get into 3000 cap places on that tour

Seeing them in Chester next week - love having decent bands in a venue 10 mins down the road instead of trekking to Manchester all the time. Saw them in Manc in October and it was great gig, so looking forward to this, shame there isn't a support in the same calibre as Tracer.

Fair enough - they did OK over here, playing the sort of 'second tier' venues - 3k capacities and largely maintained that through the grunge years, but they couldn't follow Leppard etc into the arenas. I recall they pushed a single to radio stations under a blank label (On A Broken Dream) and was positive but was turned down when they found out who the band. I remember them saying that they wa

Liked them back in the day - don't know about not getting the right push, they had loads of chances, hit singles, TV appearances. If they'd concentrated more on getting the third album out instead of making up stories for the press they have done better. Saw them a few times and they are great, but a dismal reunion show with Alice Cooper and a lame one with Def Leppard/Whitesnake put me off th

That Lennon quote is frequently taken out of context: its not a dig at Ringo, but a sarky comment towards Paul, who put himself on the drum stool on Back IN The USSR and Dear Prudence when Ringo walked out.
