Wow, that was great - I'm glad you shared it!

I'm really jazzed to see Buck Dharma from BOC and Jake E Lee in there! Tom Kiefer, Jason Newsted and Rob Zombie will be great guests too.

That brief clip is more catchy and appealing to me than the entirety of the THE DEVIL YOU KNOW album that Heaven & Hell put out. Hopefully Tony Iommi has written more riffs with some variety in them for this new Sabbath album, versus the parade of funeral dirges in E and D that filled the H&H album.

I like it! It may prompt my first Queensryche purchase in quite some time.

Excellent point. Glenn's got a long trail of aborted collaborations and smoldering bridges behind him..

I picked it up yesterday for $6, and I think it's a lot of fun. "Anthem" is ok..."TNT" I could have done without just because it seems too obvious of a song to cover and Joey's voice doesn't lend itself to AC/DC..."Smokin" is exactly that - smokin!..."Keep on Runnin" is a great cover..."Big Eyes" is pretty cool..."Jailbreak" was another

I couldn't get into 'The Devil You KNow' either. Too plodding and dirge-like. Same problem I had with the Iommi/Hughes album 'Fused'. The classic Sabbath albums had a variety of sounds, textures, tempos and feels. Now Tony thinks he needs to play everything in the key of E, or drop it down to D. Where are the songs like "Tomorrow's Dream", "Symptom of the Universe", "

You mean like those first two dreadful SAbbath albums? ;-)

HEAVEN FORBID was a really great return for the band. It's got some great tunes on it, and the sound is huge. I wasn't nearly as taken with the followup, CURSE OF THE HIDDEN MIRROR. My personal favorites from the band's catalog are THE REVOLUTION BY NIGHT, CULTOSAURUS ERECTUS, SPECTRES and the controversial IMAGINOS. But I love their entire catalog, and spin all eras of the band regularly. S

Yeah, his webstore is an odd setup. You place an order, they email you back and you submit a payment through PayPal using the order number they emailed you. It's not the most streamlined process. Laurent is right about the quality of Tony's lyrics. That's why he's one of my favorite lyricists, alongside Rick Springfield. It takes a special knack to write something that works so well in a s

How on earth it escaped me that Tony Carey put out an album called The Long Road back in 1992 is beyond me! I have damn near everything else the guy has put out from his early 80's instrumental albums to his recent Christmas album, with the exception of TLR and the EBC Roxx album he did with JR Blackmore, which I will rectify soon. Anyone out there have The Long Road? Thoughts on it, while I'm

Very cool. I love DP. Sure, they're hit and miss with their albums these days. But they're still putting out new music, and I always find something I enjoy. I'll be sad when my heroes have all disappeared. Until then, I will continue to support what they do. And I say this as I listen to the latest album by the great Little Feat...

People tend to overlook the fact that all those classic hits were once brand new, unfamiliar songs too. And actually, in the case of bands like Rick Springfield and Loverboy for example, there are songs on their recent releases which I'd rather hear in lieu of some of the hits. Blue Oyster Cult is one of my very favorite groups. They had just three or four songs that were played on radio

Stanley Knight, original guitarist with Black Oak Arkansas, died yesterday after a short battle with cancer. Stanley played on all the classic BOA material, alongside Jim Dandy and Tommy Aldridge. RIP Stanley.

I'm afraid I have to agree. They're about as exciting as Eric Clapton these days. And even funnier is the name of the song they were playing at the time, while the woman sat knitting in the background.

His solo at the end of "Empty Rooms" was breathtaking in Stockholm. Great show.

Yep. From the first album up through Imaginos, plus a couple discs of rarities that the average fan won't already have.

I used to set my tape player to record late night radio broadcasts on KSHE when I lived near St. Louis when I was a young teenager, and I once heard a completely bizarre song about a trucker's encounter with a Martian in a roadside cafe. The song was ridiculous, but a lot of fun and it bothered me for the longest time that I had no idea who it was. Some number of years later I happened to pick

On a tenuously related note...I saw the DD album 'Screw It' at my used CD shop the other day. Worth picking up?

With the first of the time zones entering Christmas, I thought I'd take a moment to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Happy Kwanzaa, Festivus or non-denominational winter observance. Whatever your belief system is, I hope this message finds you in good spirits, good health and that 2013 brings more of what you want and less of what you don't! Cheers...Todd

It also shows John Payne has a great appreciation for the music of John Wetton, and not so much for his own tunes. Pretty much like the rest of the average concert audience who goes to see Asia.

John Payne has no business calling himself Asia, especially with the original band reunited, recording and touring. If it was Payne, Downes and Palmer or a similar lineup, fine. But it's not. Nobody knows Asia for the material John Payne recorded - with few exceptions, the audiences he's drawing are coming to hear the material he had no part in writing or recording.

Do you have Don's last solo album? There are some songs on there that sound like they could be right off a Purple album. Good stuff.

Rob Halford toward the end of Screaming for Vengeance & Freewheel Burning. Eric Adams in Blood of a King and the finishing seconds of Nessun Dorma. Alice Cooper in the middle of Elected. And Ronnie James Dio in the opening seconds of Mob Rules on the Heaven & Hell album Live at Radio City.
