Song Brave New World Artist Styx Writers Bruce Dickinson, Dave Murray, Steve Harris Youtube has the writers of this as the crew from Iron Maiden. I think they have this confused with Iron Maidens album/song.

I am suprised there is no mention of Talisman's Cats and Dogs.... my personal favorite, but also the first non-Yngwie album that really turned me on to JSS.

Stellar! In my eyes, Dennis DeYoung can do no wrong. I am from Chicago and grew up on the southside near their stomping grounds, so they have been ingrained in my life since childhood. I believe Dennis DeYoung is the greatest musician Chicago every produced, and when you look at this catalog, production and amount of quality music produced, he is a legend in his own right. Now if only Styx an

Steve Lee.... I was late to discover Gotthard and started listening to them extensively about 6 months before Steve died. I still remember seeing the story come across Facebook and it left me stunned. Such a freak/weird accident to a an amazing talent way to soon.

Bobby Vinton, Lawrence Welk, and Polka stations in Chicago, but when your parents are Polish immigrants, that's normal. Absolutely zero impact on my music choices! Had an older cousin who introduced me to Van Halen, AC/DC, and Judas Priest.

Donnie and Chip recently hashed out their differences, and have made their peace. Per the post about it, Donnie is going to keep working on support of his current album, while Chip supports the new EZN album. It appear they intend to start working together again. Donnie is sober now for several years and getting back into music.Here is a copy and paste from Donnie's facebook page: BTW good 3

Risk is a weak album overall, but Breadline is a killer tune, probably the most melodic of Megadeth's catalog.

Your point about the best candidate is one that many of us ponder often. Van Halen sang "Where have all the good times gone...." and I often wonder where all the good candidates have gone.... I think smart people avoid politics because it is a hot mess in the USA. There is no perfect candidate, and as humans, we are all flawed. We hold up JFK and other long ago politicians as some gol

I will say that I have a ton of friends and family that will go apeshit on anyone attacking Trump. I think what you are referring to is part of the polarization and hypocrisy in the press. When Brett Kavanaugh was being nominated for Supreme Court, some women came out and accused him of rape. The press torched Kavanaugh. Recently, a woman came out with a claim against Biden, and you can hear

I agree with both of you. I have liberal friends and family that won't talk to me, or roll their eyes because I am conservative, and strongly believe in it. There is a pronounced lack of respect and civility in the press and between both parties, that is a damn shame. If people would be civil and communicate, I feel things would get better because we the majority aren't really that far apart.

I live in Chicago, IL. US politics are extremely complex and we currently have a two-party system. The Democrats and Republicans have very different and polarizing approaches to the country. I think you will find most Americans are very similar, with say 90% of us agree on most things. It is the alt-right and alt-left, which make up the 5% outliers on either end of the spectrum, which seem to

It depends on your perspective.... I am a diehard Enuff Znuff fan, and love all their output except for the most recent stuff with Chip. I think Donnie is being very open and honest about his life, mistakes, etc. The sad part is he is being cut out of his creation/band. I agree that airing it all out on Facebook is not the greatest look. I am just glad he is alive and writing new music again

This album is beyond stellar! I am just wrapping up my second spin of the full album and it is amazing. Best work by Zak in a while.

They have a unique sound and very strong songs, at least stronger than many other similar bands. When I heard the album in full, I found every song enjoyable and memorable. But like everything, to each their own.

I believe he sued Adrian over the use of the name Vandenberg. If I recall correctly, the rest of the band wanted to tour but without Adrian. https://www.planetrock.com/news/rock-news/whitesnake-guitarist-in-dispute-over-his-own-name/
