Quotewhat the frig is he doing? Making music....outside of repeating what he has done since he was 20? Offering his interpretation of some classic tunes? Making a covers record? Broadening his musical legacy? Appealing to a more mature/slightly different audience? Repeat after me: it's ok to enjoy something other than the same formulaic music that I have listened to since I was a teenager.

An awful way for anyone to go out. Only 61. Tragic.

Solid record but as usual....the hype machine is off the tracks. Comparing it to the sort of impact/vibe that Appetite had and calling this a "classic"? Please.

For what it is (his interpretation of some classic songs), it's very good. His voice is perfect for most of these tunes...especially the slower stuff. Kind of sad that he took this (covers) route...but the record of all new material is already being made.

Quite impressive...especially so with such a mundane, forgettable piece of their catalog. Damn few acts in the world can still roll out of bed and sell a million+ copies, based on name and reputation alone.

Aerosmith, Kiss, Night Ranger, Journey, Winger, Crue, Cinderella...all kinds of bands that were big in the 70s and 80s and they all have pretty full heads of hair. Most of my contemporaries still have plenty of hair as well. I guess some live in a different reality...where all men lose their hair.

Can't think of any of the 80s bands (who are still touring) that are now (primarily) comprised of bald men. Feel free to give examples.

2 iconic records....that could use proper remasters. Hard to believe that was 35 years ago already.

Nothing they did after their debut came anywhere close to that level of greatness. That record is nothing short of a genre classic. After Firepower....they were dead to me.

QuoteIn my opinion he is doing what he wants as he don't need to prove anything. He still sells CDs and tour ticktes in great numbers. Nothing you state has anything to do with opinion...it's all common knowledge and nobody disputes any part of it. The point is, if all you want to do is tour America with your Dreadnought and a piano, don't tell us it's a "rare opportunity" to catch

ENJOY....I understand after seeing this video, he was offered the role of Yoda, in the new Star Wars film. Very little makeup needed!

To an extent, I have to believe it's about the cash flow. Him, a guitar and the fellow who accompanies him on piano (on a few songs) is a far fatter payday than him and his multi piece band, plus support crew.

So Mr. Adams has announced a new US tour. It's the "Bare Bones" tour. The press release includes this statement: The show provides a rare opportunity for fans to see Adams as they've not seen him before: solo-acoustic and intimate. Uhhh, not really so "rare"...as this is the EXACT show he played LAST TIME HE TOURED THROUGH THE AREA! I was hoping to finally catch the full ba

The first 2 records were incredible. They lost me after that. Not fond of what I'm hearing in this new one.

No AC/DC or REO? They certainly fit the criteria and make several of the listed acts look diminutive by comparison...in pretty much every category of importance for such acts.

Stalingrad was the last one. I think Blood Of Nations was more 'melodic', if one can use that term regarding Accept. Some great riffs on Blood Of Nations.

Too many songs over 5:00, imo. Songs in this style are just not interesting enough to justify that duration. 3-4 mins and I'm ready to move on to the next very similar tune.

The Bernie Marsden record (Shine) is excellent. Good blues rock, front to back. Great bunch of players on the record too.

I get his frustration, because it's completely out of control. I was watching a concert on TV the other night and about 60% of the people had their stupid phone up in the air, shooting low quality video and audio...which they will never look at more than once...if even! You buy a (usually expensive) ticket and attend a show to take in the performance and the atmosphere...not watch it on a 3 inch

That Maragold is pretty intense stuff. Did not realize that was Greg Howe's band until I watched the video. Quite a voice on that young lady.

It's also widely understood that America is still loaded with lunatics who love to pose as 'good christians', in an attempt to justify their bigotry and hypocrisy. These tea party types came out of the woodwork en masse this last year, to show support for their fellow homophobes...who run Chick fil a. Your "theory" amounts to little more than 'birds of a feather'. As usual...anothe

Let's face it, his life also revolves around booze. He sold the tequila biz for millions...only to start manufacturing rum. Not sure how much he imbibes, but you don't get into those businesses if you don't have a real love for spirits. His musical output has been quite weak in recent years. The effects of years of boozing do not come without a price. At his age he still puts off the massive 'par

A fine group of players who are making a nice living off of the (lyrical) lowest common denominator. It would be nice to see them put out a record of straight forward lyrical material and remove the costumes...but then the joke would be over and the lowest common denominator crowd would probably ignore them. Enjoy!

QuoteJudging by the ridiculous feedback here you'd think Jeff had released a death metal album. Most of the feedback leaned toward the positive side. Apparently, for some, anyone daring to proclaim that what they hear isn't something that immediately blows their skirt up is: "ridiculous". How very objective of you.

The sample didn't do much for me. That said, you can always find a few great songs on any project JSS is attached to. There are damn few in his class. I'll certainly give it a listen when it comes out.
