Both very good albums and on Withford/St.Holmes it was great hearing two guitar players who took a backseat in their other bands really stepping up.

I think it depends on which original members are left in the band. If I use Queen as an example, it does feel more "right" with May/Taylor than should it be Taylor/Deacon. The most important member of Foreigner is still around. Would be strange with just Dennis Elliott as the only original member, wouldn't it. Music is very much a nostalgia thing for me. I want to hear the old songs be

First Marino/Mahogany Rush-album bought was "Strange Universe" from 1975 but the album from which these videos are, "What's Next" is my favourite one. Too bad he has, semmingly stopped releasing new music, "Eye Of The Storm" from 2000 being his last/latest.

Japan's "Gentlemen take polaroids" and "Quiet life" are timeless classics and so is "Anywhere" by New Musik.

Thanks for posting, highly enjoyable! Love it! Saw them open up for Ted Nugent in 1976, with Kenny Driscoll still in the band.

Great album and the last good Scorpions album. But anything from the Uli Jon Roth years beats it.

Not a big Toto-fan but "White Sister" is an awesome track. And so are "Endless" and "Isolation".

Saw them some years ago play in a tiny little club in Malmoe, Sweden. Me and about 25-30 others.... A shame, they deserve more. Great band.

That list has shrunk with each passing year. Not even my longtime heroes Kate Bush and Kansas can be trusted anymore.

Even though John Elefante and Mike Rynoski (Reno) are great singers the music of Kansas and Moxy respectively went for the worse when they came on board. Not necessarily their fault, but.... Same with Journey; a band that made far more interesting music pre-Perry.

"the blessing of his father"....there is a possibility he doesn't care what they do. As Mark Reale was the only constant factor, this band should be put to rest. But hey, go ahead and make an album of entirely new songs under the name Riot. In a live situation, though, just don't play anything from Rock City, Narita or Fire Down Under with a new line-up.

Black Country Communion is my favourite supergroup. Three, great GREAT studioalbums. One good, often forgotten, supergroup from the past is Emerson/Lake/Powell. Someone mentioned Transatlantic within "prog circles"...I say UK (Wetton/Holdsworth/Jobson/Bruford). Brilliant! Did someone mention Bad Company? If not it's alright....can't stand them.

Wouldn't call myself a Blackfootfan but I've always loved FLYIN HIGH. There were always some good tracks on most albums but not many enough. Blackfoot + Hensley was a strange liasion, almost like Queen + Paul Rodgers.

Yes indeed, Carl1, Steve Stevens "Memory Crash" is a fantastic album! Swedish band Plankton have released several great instrumental albums which are sounding a lot like Wishbone Ash. Which brings to mind that bands "F.U.B.B".

Not sure if they had broken big had he stayed, but I always thought it was a shame when Buzz Shermann's place in Moxy was taken by Mike Rynoski (Reno). Think that maybe The Lizards would have gone places if it worked out with John Garner.

First heard them in 1977 when I borrowed the debut and Masque from a friend. He insisted they were great but I was sceptical, it was all hardrock for me back then; Sir Lord Baltimore, Teaze, Starz, Left End etc so a band with a violinist in it couldn't possibly be any good. After listening I bought all albums. For me it is the original band that counts, some good albums after that but no way is

When Sabbath started out all those years ago they were VERY original. Nothing like them. I'm not expecting them to come up with something "never-before-heard" this time around. Hardly anyone does.

First album still stands as a good album (maybe because it is the first), never liked "Cool Kids", loved "midnite Dynamite" when it came out (I don't anymore, but that is the case with a lot of 80's releases), lost interest with "Blow My Fuse".

Frank Marino has meant so much to me in my "musical upbringing". Discovered him when I heard the track "Strange Universe" being played on Swedish Radio in 1975. Love the "Juggernaut"-album and the track mentioned, "You Got Livin'" (from "What's Next") is one of the best opening numbers of all time, IMO. Hope he releases some new material soon and,

Great band. And we got 3 albums from them, I'm happy with that. Didn't expect anymore. I'd see no problem in carrying on witha replacement, though. Maybe someone like Jake E Lee.
