Sad Wings of Destiny was their 2nd album, released in 1976. It introduced what would become the classic elements of the Priest sound and visual imagery (sans the leather- that came later) which would continue to evolve and be refined over the years. British Steel was the 1st JP album of the 80's.

Agreed, "Conspiracy Of Stars" is my favorite Vinny era album and a lot of the credit goes to Chris who did a brilliant job of making UFO sound like UFO again. I was really hoping he'd be working with them on the next one (sigh).

Sure, Priest evolved their sound toward a more commercially viable approach going onto the 80's, but I'd argue that their 70's output (Sad Wings thru Unleashed) while attracting less mainstream popularity, was equally as good, and definitely as artistically influential at the time. The Scorps did some cool/interesting albums in the Uli era, but nothing genre defining... whereas Sad Wings Of Desti

WTF- I'm shocked- just awful news. Thoughts and prayers to his family and (many many) friends and fans around the world.

Lifelong fan of Priest, including the "Redeemer" album- but I have to agree, the song is just ok, well below classic Priest standards: forgettable riff, generic melody line, weak solos, and Halford's voice doesn't sound great either. But worse than all that (considering the talk of great writing sessions and the new production team) is that it's redundant and uninspired... I do like the

My "most deserving" of all the inductees this year: Sister Rosetta Tharpe. Anybody who doesn't know who that is, go look it up.

He's just released a solo instrumental album "Shades Of Gray". I haven't heard it but the reviews I've seen seem very positive: https://www.therockpit.net/2017/myke-gray-shades-of-gray/

Arnel would be great especially if the goal was to do new material...Based on Schon's comments it sounds like for this one off show they're only doing material up thru the Departure album (my favorite era so I'm fine with that)... But to be an ongoing credible Journey, they'd have to be willing to do Cain era material too- I wonder if Rolie would be up for that.

I don't live in The UK, so maybe they were overhyped over there at the time but certainly not here in the states. Regardless, I did enjoy that first Skin album, but I personally preferred its 1990 predecessor- the Jagged Edge UK album "Fuel For Your Soul" w/ Matti Alfonsetti on vocals. If you haven't heard it you should give it a spin: https://youtu.be/mocP_VfME1g

I haven't heard the Watchtower stuff, but it's achieved a kind of legendary cult status. After the Don Dokken band, he started the Billy White Trio which was more of a hard psych blues rock thing and released the albums Sister Shooting Star and Illusionation. I have them, but I don't remember digging them that much overall. Most recently (the past 8-9 years) he's moved on to become a very accompl

Dave Meniketti The ultimate "triple threat" (lead singer/lead guitarist/songwriter). An incredible talent, imo one of the most underrated in rock. Last surviving original member of Y&T, and great solo albums as well, still performing at a high level, a live act not to be missed!

The song and vocals are ok, nothing earth shattering but MS sounds great and everyone else sounds decent enough. As someone on YouTube commented, Schenker Fest is like a hard rock version of "The Expendables". In a business where so many can't put their egos aside, it's refreshing to see all these old vets getting along and having fun.

Lol... Actually the bands mentioned were for stylistic reference- quality is in the ear of the beholder. As for DC, not a low blow- it was a compliment because I believe he'd be great singing in an authentic range over a more stripped back production rather than trying to stretch his voice to the limits as on the last couple albums. But I suppose one man's screeching is another man's gold.

Lyncho, by "southern blues" I'm talking the soulful side (Memphis, the Delta, etc.)not "southern rock". Check it out, I think you'll dig it. As I listened to it I couldn't help thinking this is the kind of album Coverdale should be making now. This is how to do "kick ass and in your face" without screeching your way thru an over-compressed wall of noise in anothe

The band is an international cast of relatively unknown but experienced players: Ireland's David Byrne on vocals and Mark Dempsey on bass guitar, Polish guitarist Michal Kulbaka, and South African drummer Marius Appelgryn. I know there's a lot of bands attempting to be "classic hard blues rock" going around right now. A lot of them don't impress me much. But these guys have done an

I was listening to the "Restless Heart" album the other day... granted some of the material on that album could have been more ummm, "kick ass and in your face"...but I do like the lower tones/ no screaming style he sang with on that album- it's a more natural fit for where his voice is now and I wish he would continue to sing in that lower range.

Yep, would definitely agree that Winger is the "side gig"- has been for quite some time and will continue to be unless or until he leaves WS.
