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.

A big part of the problem is that Wetton was the only one in the band then who could sing (I don't know how Sam Coulson is on vocals). I saw Asia live on the Omega tour. When they played "Believe", the background vocals consisted of Geoff Downes singing through a harmonizer with (I believe) some canned BG vocals. Sounded horrible there as well.

It does sound horrible. You can listen to a clip at: http://www.amazon.com/One-Step-Closer-Live/dp/B00LKBSRCG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1409324700&sr=8-1&keywords=asia+high+voltage+one+step+closer Luckily, the clip isn't that long.

Great stuff. Thanks for posting it. Gary is a very talented guy. He would be a great addition to Boston. Gary's a guy who has put a lot of work into his music and deserves a shot at the "big time."

The only scheduled personnel change was with respect to the drummer. Jeff Neal was to do the first part of the tour and Curly Smith was to do the second. Ostensibly, the reason behind this is that Jeff is a high school history teacher in Maine and needs to commit to the start of the school year. The tour will not be over before the school year starts. Jeff is also an assistant soccer coac

Here is a message board thread regarding David Victor's absence: http://www.gonnahitcharide.com/thejourney/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=8086 You'll probably need an account to view it. He is apparently gone from the tour and no reason has been given. Everyone involved is very tight-lipped. Most of the conversation surrounds the noticeably missing guitar parts from the live show.

I saw Boston about four weeks ago. David Victor was playing with them, but he didn't sing much in the way of lead vocals. He did "Amanda" and "Walk On." Siobhan Magnus wasn't involved then. To be honest, I didn't think DV sounded good on "Amanda." He did a better job sounding like Fran on "Walk On" than he did sounding like Brad on "Amanda.&qu

Also, I think there is a lot more money for Ronnie in touring with Kansas than there ever would have been with Shooting Star, so much more incentive for him to go out on tour with Kansas (even though they don't really do extended tours any longer) than there ever was with Shooting Star. Kansas has a much broader appeal than Shooting Star. People know "Dust in the Wind" and "Carry

They did reach out to Elefante. He declined. He said that God told him to say no. http://ultimateclassicrock.com/john-elefante-no-kansas-reunion/

Sad to see Steve Walsh go, but Ronnie Platt is an incredible singer. Didn't know that he also played keyboards. For those who don't know Ronnie, he was briefly a member of Shooting Star and has been singing with ARRA, a Chicagoland area cover band.

John Roth has been playing with Starship (Mickey Thomas) since the untimely passing of their previous guitarist Mark Abrahamian. I know Starship had a July 4 gig. Don't know about July 3.

She's the only one out there with any singing chops, but they bury her in the mix. Wonder if they have her running the merch table. Nina Noir was doing that when she was out on tour with Tateryche.

I watched the whole thing, and it was painful. Also remember that Jason Ames (strumming the chords and singing next to him) is doing most of the singing while Uncle Vester sings under him. To add to the clusterf*ck that you saw, keep in mind that Jason Ames used to be married to Susan Tate, who is Geoff Tate's current wife. You can't make this sh*t up.

> PS: did you mean 'Fester' from THe Adams Family? He meant Uncle Vester. It's one of Tate's many nicknames, frequently used in the comment section of the countless Blabbermouth articles. There is some really entertaining stuff over there. Tate really takes a beating over there, but I must say that he has probably earned every morsel of it. Many of the nicknames make reference to the

Mickey was originally hired by Elvin Bishop to be a backing vocalist. When Elvin wrote "Fooled Around," he felt his voice didn't suit the song, so he had Mickey sing lead. THat was really Mickey's big break.

If you buy a CD from the original pressing, you can send a copy of your receipt to Cleopatra Records and they will send you a hard copy of the remixed version. They do not send MP3's. It is a new CD in an empty, clear jewel case (no liner notes). I actually received the remix CD in an extremely prompt fashion. It's definitely better than the original pressing, but most of the songs on either
