thats it MArk HEAT are super LIVE - stage presence, energy, charisma Vega maybe are the better musically - but havent quite got it in terms of a LIVE performance - i.e. stage presence, energy, charisma For example - Dave Lee Roth - all show - he really had stage presence, energy, charisma - would you rate his albums - NO - hes more for the eyes than ears imho

Live music is such a different beast from the studio album In fact you could really love a band's albums, but when you see them live they are very boring. And Vice versa - maybe you are not really into a a band's music but find them great live. I am generalising here - but can imagine ELO, Pink Floyd and Barclay James Harvest being just Ok in concert, but yet they turn out amazing albums.

Probably not discussed much here, but I'm just relistening to his 'BOYS & GirLs' album from about 1985? its amazing - probably prefer it to the Roxy music albums which are great. Its the feel of the album thru the excellent production and, at times sparse arrangements, creating a delightful atmosphere with great songs & superb, if restrained, guitar work. treat yourself to this g

Anyway - I was trying to make the point that we generally seem to know more lead guitarists than bass players - in other words lead guitarists are more prominent.

great thread What about the bass on Iron Maiden songs - its generally very prominent and gave the band their very distinctive sound - of course with Steve Harris being boss and bass player, the bass just had to be heard. However, generally bass and bass players seem to play 'second fiddle' to the guitar players and vocalists. Cant think of many bass players, apart from: Steve Harris

Hi Wardy I bought 'To Hell With The Devil' in the 80s and was very disappointed - the vocals just let the album down. So since then I have never really listened to Stryper (had the same problem with Shy - Excess All Areas) - however - with nearly everyone recommending 'NO More Hell To Pay' I am now listening to it on Spitify. - so far sounds good and the vocals arent really a concern - the

In the 80s I enjoyed the articles and reviews etc. in Kerrang and was wondering if anyone knows what the various writers / contributors / journalists are doing now, especially the following: - Derek Oliver (he loved AOR) - Xavier Russell (loved thrash metal me thinks) other names will maybe come to me later BMG

Allen adds: “I’d love to work with Mutt again but I’m not sure we could spend the amount of time in the studio that we’ve spent in the past with Mutt. We like to work in a quicker way. It would be fantastic to do a few songs with him but I’m not sure we could actually do a full record with him.” The 'quicker way' wont result in the quality of Pyromania or Hysteria The 'quicker w

sorry but - they are still a B-grade rock band never really liked them - 'they give/gave rock a bad name' Y&T (see thread below) deserved the success on musical terms. MC got theirs on 'outrageness' terms. imho

Sorry T - statistics re. no. of hit songs and amount of album sales are a bit irrelevant when I consider that crap like Daniel O'Donnell, Madonna, etc. sell bucket loads of singles / albums. Massive sales are NOT a sign of high quality music - agreed?

Having not been around in the 60s its maybe hard to understand the Beatles appeal. But they certainly were a massive influence on the bands we love today - I suppose we should be grateful for that. Having said that - from my 'objective' perspective - other 60s bands seem to have better songs - suchs as: Mama & Papas - California Dreaming Moody BLues - Nights in White Satin Simon &a

Hi Adolfo I'm right with you on this one. Such hype - they were admittedly talented - but they were in a sense a 60s boy band - the 'girl' factor helped propel them to stardom. Admittedly they seem to have influenced some of the groups i really like - eg The Scorpions and ELO In my search for good music as a teenager, I bought the Seargent Pepper album - there was so much hype about i
