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.

Love their albums (and the Horrible Crows one) but thought they were dreadful live: given their constant references to rock's greats I was expecting at least a bit of showmanship, but a surly, charmless singer and a cack handed third guitarist, they blundered their way through a set with few highlights. First support Dave Hause managed more wit and charm with just him and a guitar.

Thing is tho', like anything where you pay for access to anything, the tickets are issued with terms and conditions, which you accept before purchasing, and what they did here complies with that. Disappointing maybe, but not a farce. I remember seeing Queensryche play at the Apollo on the Q2K tour, and the balcony was closed, and maybe half of the seats were sold - probably less than a thousan

Ever since they made commercial concessions for the One video/single, everything they've done has been to make themselves bigger. Now, that involves touring all over, including the lucrative new Asian markets. Their manager said last year that they toured Europe doing the Black album instead of recording an album because of potential issues with the Euro, and that future touring would be more

As much as I love that era, what's left of Coverdale's voice is the deal-breaker. If, like me, you missed out, then we missed out.

According to wiki, Appetite is the 10th biggest selling album in America with 18m sales. Worldwide its about 35m. Next is Slippery and Hysteria with 12m each in the US, Pyromania, Van Halen 1984 and ZZ Tops Eliminator at 10m.

I'm surprised they've announced these dates - their usual pattern is full tour for the albums, one off festival gigs for these heritage shows. I can imagine a few being pissed off having to spend £100+ for a Donington day ticket to see the Maiden England show believing this pattern to hold, only for a cheaper ticket for the same show being offered a week later.

Saw them for the fifth time on Saturday and I think they've done the RAOTW and Shout thing at every one. Still, enjoyed it considering I wasn't that excited about it - while I've got some time for the Lost Highway type stuff, You Want To Make A Memory is a drag and there was a sizeable exit to the bar. But the good thing about a 3 hr set is that you can play the hits, the new stuff and some b
