Celloist Katinka Kleijn is ex-District 97 cello player. This is from their 1st record. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZaPUJrykAg If you're into prog-rock and want faster tempos and great hooks , I strongly recommend you to have a listen. Even Wetton reviewed this song as one of his favorites. I insist on suggesting Downes is Asia's culprit. He does not suit Yes at all IMHO, and while Asi

The Dream of the Blue Turtles is a masterpiece from start to finish. Never matched later. Jazz meets rock, great compositions, stunning band (Omar Hakim did some amazing things back then). The latest Sting is a snoozefest. Skip it. Get Ten Summoner's Tales, his best with Colaiuta on drums (Seven Days is still amazing to my ears), then Soul Cages (with Manu Katche on drums). The rest is quit

I listened to Wetton with District 97 ( http://youtu.be/ODe-iAaNvnQ ) and immediately thought at Downes being the culprit for Asia mellow sound. Wetton still loves a good prog/rock sound, Howe is blamed by almost anyone, Palmer with Bielatowicz on guitar does a stunning ELP reinterpretation. Anyway, as much as I liked XXX, it didn't do a lot for me. I consider Asia first and second as 2 master

Coming off from Simon and Luke's FB posts, all is positive (or it sure looks so). I still don't get it, Simon can do everything and always managed to fit every session he could in between Toto main activities schedule. At the end of the day we'll have a new Toto record, a new tour, another great drummer (Steely Dan is a tough session for everyone), and that is what matters most. Maybe Simon de

Count me in Niv. As a huge fan of Simon, having just seen him live in Milan and loving his playing, can't really accept this kinda bad news for me. Dunno what to think.... Cheers

Terry, I had the same experience with Transatlantic first record. It took me over 5 spins to make it click. Neal Morse Momentum record was a great experience to hear and follow in a live setting, I didn't love it as much as his previous records at first. Then I changed my mind, thanks to the epic track, hearing it live is a majestic experience. You'd want it to go on and on forever :) Cheers

On the contrary, whirlwind immediately clicked at first listen. That song, rose colored glasses in the title (sorry Im gettin older and lazy today lol) was perfect for my mood, I just love it. Neal Morse is a genius. Cheers mate

A mellow, growing on you kinda song here. I kinda like it, not love it, as Terry well said here even ELP had Lucky Man , From the Beginning kind of songs. This is the single anyway, and I love Transatlantic for their epics. Anything Neal Morse is way better than the rest tho. Cheers

I still love Queen's first 3 records, their best rock stuff. Anyway, this has gone completely out of path wrt thread's title :) But, to go on, LZ 1st record came out in 1968, 5 years before Queen 1st. LZ had a major impact on those days music, they changed game rules. Queen 1, as good as it was, cannot be regarded as innovative or varied. They were just that, LZ clones. ANATO changed direction,

Led Zep 1 was mostly bluesy/hard rock Led Zep 2 was almost the same formula Led Zep 3 had an entire side that was folk. Led Zep 4 had blues/folk/metal/hard rock Houses of the Holy had reggae funk prog/rock Physical Graffiti had everything plus eastern influences Presence had prog/jazz In through the out door had pop calypso straight rock and roll Lets not forget Queen (and Rush) were b

Actually Journey with Rolie/Dunbar were an experimental band, guess their 1st record , Look into the Future and Next are not your cup of tea. And I still think their pre-Perry era was unique and with lots of improv, like Queen never did in their whole career. Not debating who is better here. Anyway, even Led Zeppelin were much more varied than Queen, musically speaking. Queen were much more ac

I guess Journey's music was much more diverse than Queen's. Queen 1 and 2+ Sheer Heart Attack channeled Led Zep's music, then they built their own genre which is a mix of opera/rock/pop/hard rock, with a touch of disco here and there. Journey's first 3 records bordered fusion,instrumental rock,hard rock,then they went the mainstream rock/ballads/pop and finally soul with Raised on Radio. I gu

Terry as usual I fully agree with you. Journey at their peak here. I still prefer their Infinity/Evolution/Departure era to what followed. So I'm a bit biased her ;) Steve Perry here kicked any other singer balls out. Plain and simple. I am in love with this voice. You had to compare Freddy Mercury to Steve here to realize how great (and better) Steve was... Cheers

Thank you Terry. This kind of suggestions are always welcome, I'll give a check tonite when I get back home. I am now deep into District 97, I strongly suggest you to check this amazing band. Don't be distracted by their vocalist, Leslie Hunt, she's an hottie, but can sing quite good :) Cheers

I agree Peter. Perry is un-replaceable. Nobody can touch his work with Journey. Arnel does a fine job, Castronovo does a damn great job (I'm biased towards his vocals, the best I ever heard covering Perry's material) but they can't touch Journey prime. JSS effort was huge in covering those vocals. He was and still is a solid singer and a great showman on stage. That being said, I loved watchi

Ahem Terry you are completely right. That was Bill Graham indeed, Larry was the bass player. Sorry :) AS far as the key dropping , I recall reading in that Herbie Herbert it was done on specific request by Steve Perry. I agree he still sounds great and unique, considering he was out of the business since 1987, but again, his voice aged pretty quickly considering his start in 1978. A tone and a h

That video was Perry reuniting with Schon and Cain for an intimate tribute to the late great Larry Graham They tuned down the songs a lot, and you could read the entire story from Herbie Herbert infamous interview back then ( I believe you can find that interview on the web ) Perry didn't sing for a lot of time back then and you can hear it. Btw, I don't think this could be called Journey....

Concert was quite amazing. Simon and the band tore it up, Andy Timmons and Steve Weingart soared thru solos and improv, Simon and Ernest Tibbs on bass kept it in the pocket and Simon exploded whenever he could into burst of creativity. The most interesting pieces were the almost-sequencer tracks (a-la V8), Upside in outside out, and the two with lead-doubled on guitar and keys. Simon was very

Steven Wilson is a genius. His latest record is amazing, one of the top prog/rock records released in 2013. And the band is amazing, not just Guthrie Govan, but Marco Minnemann and Nick Beggs as well. My favorite track is Luminol. On a different note: I bought 3 records, this one, Paul Gilbert's Vibrato and Virgil Donati's In This Life, and I'm loving them so much. 3 great records. I'm so g

That is true Peter. But that shouldn't draw from the fact Steve Perry is totally unknown here while Freddie is the only singer recognized as The Best Male Voice on the planet. Sidefact: Charisma-wise and stage-presence-wise , David Lee Roth should be acknowledged as the best. But he is totally stranger to any young man here. While Freddie is The Best Singer to have ever graced the stage. Cheers
