I don't believe the "1987" Sykes story for a second!!....Dan Huff,good as he is,hasnt got the individuality of John sykes,a man who's trademark sound can be identified within a few seconds of listening...avery rare commodity!.......Huff has always sounded like a session man,albeit a very good one.

Geoff tate getting involved in a fistfight?.....surely not!! Your brother should probably be thankful he didn't spit on him,get his wife to join in,and then demand rights to the whole altercation which only he had the right to reproduce as a theatrical experience!

I would be quite confident in saying that "War of kings"is better than anything they put out in the 80s.....seen them live in Belfast and Dublin earlier in the year and they were staggering....especially with the newer material in their set.

I was in 3rd year in 1984 when the Ryche supported Dio at the Antrim forum on the latters "Last in line"tour. I had only heard the 4 track EP and realised that this was indeed a special band.......I wouldn't say that Dio got their ass kicked that night, but it was certainly spanked!!....Deffo one of the top dozen gigs that I have ever seen!

A shocking,shocking loss for the entire world!.....The first single I ever heard was "Life on mars/The man who sold the world......and for the next 40 years I made a point of at least listening to all the stuff he released,sometimes disappointed,but never bored!.....a genius of a man,who has left this earth a much richer place. Now,wheres that copy of Aladdin sane to crank up! RIP,Sir!!

I've been trying to think of anyone in rock and roll who best represented those three little words......best tribute I can pay to the man is that I cant!! Really, really regret not seeing Motorhead more than I did,now! RIP.

Im not surprised his voice went at his Newcastle gig,as the night before in Belfast he was screaming like a man possessed! There was a good turnout in Belfast as well,and some folk I know who aint even fans of the man found it hard to believe that a man in his mid 60's can maintain such a high level of performance...and as for Aldrich,he was stunning,foregoing his les paul and playing a strat al

Best news of the year for me,so far.........Ive NEVER seen a sub-par Hughes show EVER,and with so many singers of his vintage sounding like a bleating sheep,these shows are unmissable!! And as for Doug Aldrich,he's the foil Hughes has needed since Pat Thrall,a great mix of Sykes and Blackmore. Newcastle,Glasgow and Belfast for me, then.

Nah, theres no way that Sharon wrote this.......My moneys on Bob Daisley,after all he wrote everything else! Shame on Tony and Geezer.....Judas Iscariot,pieces of silver and utter expediency spring to mind.

If they had started with Let it go and included die hard the hunter or Gods of war, we'd be in business, but it aint a bad set-list.....and I love their version of Rock on......The shame !!

Manowar - "Hail to England"......Their finest hour,and also that of real metal. "Powerslave "by Maiden would get the consolation prize, probably because everthing afterwards has,on the whole been cack!

I think you mean the "Slip of the tongue" record from 89....Coverdale contacted Glenn to sing the high bits and ended up only using him on a handful of songs. Im still waiting for the album to be remixed so you can actually hear him ,though!!.....It might as well be Emlyn Hughes singing on it for all you can hear!!

Im really looking forward to this album as it not just my favourite era of Purple,but of all music full stop......For all the naysayers (Dave ling in particular....he hates it!!) I could never get the real adoration for Mark2 Purple,in fact my favourite album by them is Perfect Strangers from 84, but barely a day goes by without Burn, Stormbringer and the superlative Come taste the band getting

I caught them on their Dublin and Belfast shows,and as a live band they are beyond reproach....The 5 songs from the new album are killers to boot! And as for Norum.....The guy is utterly phenomenal!!
