To me, The Storm is what defines AOR... They sure look like a pretty strong live act too. Especially mr.Ramos impressed me here on this live footage.

Terrible and sad news. I'm thankful for the chances I got to see him. Been a fan since the Cobra days. One of the very finest singers ever. RIP.

I often revert to the more obscure late 70's/early 80's pomp rock bands. Also, never get tired of Cheap trick.

VLC (videolan.org) can do this (brilliant for most converting) Use the media ->convert/save function, just remember to add .mov or whatever in the output filename (filename.mov)

I never really paid attention to his solo stuff until the Rock'n'roll circuz albums - especially loved Stand Your Ground, and as I'm now listening to his new album Museum I must say that I'm really impressed with his ability to craft meaningful songs. This is mellow stuff, but still damn good, perhaps album of the year for me. I can't remember the last time I had to take a break between songs...

'Truth In A Structured Form' is one of my all time favorite albums, but also the album where they went more aor. Some brilliant songs there. Reminds me a bit of 38 Special from their prime 80's albums. http://youtu.be/fr2Jjq_ZrAY

I remember reading that DVZ would still be a creative part of the band, but after he got the foot down from the doctors he decided to enter full retirement. I've said it before, but DVZ is probably the most humble and funny guy I've ever met. I hope he's doing well...

About a year or so ago Don Barnes said they were working on a new album in the style of their 80's stuff. Have anyone heard any news concerning this? Nothing on the homepage...

> They did reach out to Elefante. He declined. He > said that God told him to say no. Are you fucking kidding me? WTF? That would've been so cool to have him back in the band, and he was even approached for the gig. Religious people...sometimes they just take the prize...

Ok, let me pick a random fairly new song/artist which fared pretty well on hit lists all over. Lil Jon's "Turn Down For What." This is the stuff that get the recognition now. This is the kind of stuff the kids listen to now. And through this "Tour Video" you get a look at the culture... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tIMUXeUAwdE Now, this isn't what I would label music.

It's happening probably because it's so much easier to arrange for these days. You can record cross continent, people never really have to even meet once, yet have a CD out.

I have tons of CD's, but Spotify has been my main source for quite some time now. Either at work (PC with decent sound system) or in the car (phone/bluetooth) I would happily pay more for premium subscription if all my money was split between the artist I listen to, and only them.

It used to be that they'd split it in % with the publishers. If a song credit on a record said it was written by Mr.A, Br.B and Mr.C, often the contract looked more like: Mr.A 60%, Mr.B 35% and Mr.C 5% if Mr.A wrote the music and maybe some lyrics, while Mr.B came up with most of the lyrics, maybe except for a bridge or something that would make Mr.C's percentage. You could also get legal songwri

That's cool Terry! The debut is somewhat lacking in both songwriting and production department IMO if you compare it to his best albums, but still worth having for the 3-4 best songs. Tell The Truth took some spins to get me going, but I've loved it ever since. Still play it regularly. Unlike many other artists in the same genre, Billy has always had a way with lyrics. Some fun, some clever and

Hear & Now was between Creatures and TTT. Don't Say No, Hear & Now and Tell The Truth -in that order -are his strongest albums IMO.

He's right about 'Tell The Truth' - It's a wonderful record. I still play it regularly. I think that if he wants to go out there to play some gigs, nothing can stop him from doing that, other than himself. He was out there a few years ago and he played a lot of stuff from the latest albums. Maybe he should try to hook up on some combined summer tour which is so popular these days. He would be th

Gary was irreplaceable in many ways, but I admire Dave Amato for his approach. He's a technically great guitarist, but he hasn't contributed the way Gary did. But that may not be his call. That being said, I really love the first album
