I love ACDC. I have for decades, really. But that distinct edge is absent, just as it were on the Black Ice album.

I had the privilege of seeing Survivor in concert with Jimi at the mic. The year was around 2000 and this was an outdoor concert which included (in this order): Survivor, Rick Springfield, Joe Walsh, and the headliner was Foreigner. Here is a very interesting interview with Jimi, beginning with Part 1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YvBryMxv6dc

It appears (to my ears) that 98% of all New Releases have been ruined by auto-tune. It has became a rarity to hear RAW talent in honest form anymore. I do pay attn to new releases in search of anything melodic to my taste that sounds genuine. However, I almost ALWAYS listen to non-current releases. Different strokes.....

I too am quite the fan of autobiographies. I am currently reading "My Cross To Bear" by Gregg Allman and a biography called "The Wrecking Crew" by Kent Hartman, which is "The inside story of Rock and Roll's best-kept secret: The unknown studio musicians who recorded the soundtrack of a generation". In fact, bass legend Carol Kaye sent me unedited transcripts of inval

Stryper, here. Their Soldiers Under Command album has stood the test of time. Stryper as a whole is greater than the sum of it's parts. Here's an example of Stryper Strength. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1r7kH_QeR2c

"Don't make people pay for music", says Amanda Palmer. "Let them". In a passionate talk that begins with her days as a street performer (drop a dollar in the hat for the Eight-Foot Bride!), she examines the new relationship between artist and fan. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMj_P_6H69g

The mention of Joel and Night Ranger reaps a serious stream of wishful thinking: I would be absolutely chuffed to bits is the new guitarist were to be Jeff Watson. Imo, he would fit perfectly. However, I do not anticipate Sir Watson as being THE new WS guitarist.

CCM.... Good choice in terms of Melodic vocal lines. However, what ruins it for me is the all-too-obvious auto-tune on her voice. My guess is, she probably uses it in a live setting, as well. If nothing else, this young bird makes for decent eye candy.

As I see it, they successfully found their own niche and most of their shows are sold out. They are excellent musicians who make fun of the so-called "serious side" of the genre. I see no reason to "make a serious album". Their success continues to build, as is. Why change up the formula?

Like some here, I am a fan of the Velocity "Impact" CD. I am not a huge fan of power ballads in general, but DV shines undeniably throughout this track. Velocity - Janine https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1co57jbJtqo

I suspect this to be the video that won Tom over. David nails that mega-high note toward the end. Perhaps that sealed the deal. However, Tom would have to confirm this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBzUKuFXRfY

I will be seeing Fran in concert next weekend. As per David Victor, he is an arrogant bloke who poses so hard onstage that, for me, it is quite unbearable. I was tight with a tech (from Boston's previous tour) who said that DV's ego had become so huge, that nobody could talk to him. The Rock Star appeared to be above it all. I am not trying to slander David with deliberate effect. I am simply poi

Terry..... I won't rate that player as being "a dime a dozen", but my assessment is far from askew. This guy is NOT the "world's best guitarist", nor is he even "awesome". If you take closer note, he using his right hand to pick at a fast speed, but his left hand (on the fret board) is very sloppy and cannot keep up. His notes do not ring out as clear and distinc

You chaps are correct. I need to call myself out. For lack of a better excuse, I had 8 teeth extracted this week which has stolen some of my focus. CCM..... Sorry for being harsh on you. Reagarding this thread, Captain, the fault sets upon me, not you. I hope that my words of truth have a positive impact upon your day, mate. Lesson learned! (I Hope) :)

CCM...the obvious. You think that EVERYONE is in agreement with you that "your guitarist" is soooo amazing. My point is, don't speak for everyone else. I am not ANGRY with you. Sorry that I came across that way. My whole point is, you should not "assume" that your "choices of awesome" are slaying the rest of us. It seems like you wanna play King of the f**king hill i

Tbh, I am generally not impressed by current music, but with a few exceptions....this being one of them. To these ears, 3 out of 4 of those tracks are crackin' tunes with meaningful lyrics, to boot.

I am as gutted as the next Outfield fan. In fact, I was having an "Outfield" discussion with some folks I had just met at a pub, and we were discussing the video for "Your Love" which is now referred to by many as, "Josie". John was spotlighted in that scene where he runs up to that gal who is painting. Man...what a huge loss! :(

Unfortunately, many of today's Top Tier session players are now recording , including bass legend Lee Sklar. A lot of the legends who did the played in tuned rooms have a lot of great memories of what once was. They see the current shift from that room....to now recording parts to as computer in somebody's bedroom. Many of the younger artists do not see the benefit of the tuned room, but they ARE

Captain Can Man Wrote: I think that guitarist is amazing just like the rest of you do. No debate there! LOL WTF?????? Either this statement is another one of your horrid attempts at Humour, or you are out of your fookin' mind if you truly are speaking for the rest of us! There is NO debate on this one CCM.

I see him perform live with Kansas, and unfortunately, his voice was beyond SHOT!!! Absolutely NOTHING about him that day sounded remotely like Steve Walsh. However, I have a LOT of respect for him....and when he's on, his talent is uncanny! I view Kansas as a band that trudges around like a car with a flat tire.
