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...

I'm happy if it's anywhere near the quality of his last rocking effort "Ready Eddie"

> 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.

Let's wait and see. I know Kevin gave Gary a helping hand during his struggling times, and no one would be happier to see Gary back on track than Kevin. Back in January (I think) REO invited Gary on stage for a couple of songs. That was his first public appearance in almost two decades. Clearly he was way out of shape, but after that he started popping up on stage with various bar bands, slowly

So it seems like the old REO axeman has finally found his way out of the bottle! Rumors has it that he's forming a new band simply called Gary Richrath Band, will release a new CD and play live gigs. The bands lead singer is apparently Thomas Edwards ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGImFOqOd_E#t=122 ) The band will also include Tim Fiers, Ryan Rose, George Herbst and Wes Simmons

REO Speedwagon - Good Trouble Their second most successful album but they never play anything from it live. Of course it was a case of the label pushing them for a quick follow-up to Hi Infidelity, but nevertheless I think they came up with a brilliant album with some blistering guitar work from Richrath.

I was playing through some Cheap Trick demos (there's a LOT of CT demos floating around) and while some understandably never got pass the demo stage, there are also quite a few gems there, like this song "We'll Still Be Holding On" which was an outtake from Lap Of Luxury. I really can't understand why they left it off as it would have been one of the best songs on the album. The qualit

Euphoria is my 2nd favorite DL album. I remember well the hype before the release, how it was back to the sound of Hysteria, and at the time I thought they delivered as promised... Demolition Man, Promises and Paper Sun being my favorite songs.
