I think Don's voice sounds pretty good in its mid-range. The problem is that he cannot hit the high notes that were a staple of Dokken's best songs. He has to change the melodies of the songs to duck those high notes, so the songs don't sound enough like they were when Don's voice was in full form. He should have kept Mark Boals around to sing the high parts while Don stayed in the mid-range.

The Foo Fighters previously covered Baker Street and it is very good. Guitar lines in place of the saxophone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DmIk05vmMc

That really doesn't appear to be the same guy in the video (large and bald) as the same guy in the LinkedIn profile Much thinner, full head of hair).

I saw them in October of 2014. Ronnie Platt (vocalist + second keyboardist) and David Manion (keyboardist + backing vocalist) were relatively new with the band, but they sounded great. The band was pretty tight. Manion had been the lighting director for Kansas for years and had played with Billy Greer in Seventh Key. Platt was previously with Chicagoland covers band ARRA and had a stint w

And when Mick doesn't play with Foreigner, it is for health reasons, not because he is a douchebag.

I think there is a thread someplace either here on the Noticeboard or in one of the forums on the Messageboard that addressed this. It might take some searching to find.

ELO Part II and Orchestra? I have all of their releases. There are a few good songs on each album, but I wouldn't say that any of them are solid from start to finish. For a sampling, you can try to get your hands on "Anthology" from The Orchestra, which has a sampling of live and studio recordings from ELO Part II and The Orchestra. Most (if not all) of the live tracks are ELO c

A number of those songs on Isolation would be difficult for anyone to pull off. I think even Fergie had trouble pulling them off live. Isolation is an awesome tune that they really gave a more aggressive sound to on the FIB tour during that medley.

His vibrato and other vocal stylistics are really annoying and don't fit the style of Poison's music. I agree that the BG vocals aren't so great. Probably don't want to pay the costs associated with the involved production.

I can't get onto YouTube at work, but there are a lot of videos from a few years ago of Don Dokken live/acoustic with Mark Boals accompanying. They are both on acoustic guitars and vocals, with MB nailing the high harmonies. That is apparently what got the ball rolling with MB joining Dokken. Don't know his skills on bass, but MB can still bring it vocally. Been listening to him since his tim

He'll have to hire someone to write the music. Queensryche had their success with DeGarmo and Wilton writing the music. GT writes lyrics, so he has to find some talented partners. I would be surprised if he was able to rekindle the magic he had with them. That's a big reason why OM:II was nothing on the level of OM and why most Queensryche fans became disillusioned by their later releases wit

This is yet another re-mixed version. Cleopatra had signed Billy Sherwood up to do the remixes, but he bailed two days later. They had a whole group of people remix different songs so it would be done more quickly. Now they brought Sherwood back, so we have another re-mixed version. There will be three versions of the album now- original, remixed by committee, and remixed by Billy Sherwood.

I think Billy Sherwood is great, but if you polish a turd, you still have a turd, albeit a shiny one. You also wind up with sh*t all over your hands.
