Good to hear they're touring--likely building a fanbase bit by bit. And writing as they go,hopefully. If they can equal the quality of Spirit,they'll be doing well! T

I couldn't care,frankly. He didn't sing it originally,so... the point is how can DC handle the tune these days? Not too close to how he originally did so-- what's the point? To show how badly his voice has gotten? I've been in his camp for his studio work on the past 2 releases. This sounds (so far) like a mistake. Hope I'm wrong tho.. T

JW has a pleasant voice,no doubt. What he does not have is any soul-or power,in his tone. That doesn't stop one from enjoying his abilities tho. And he's still got it at his age-kudos to him,and the band for reeling him back in after the demise of BK with them. T

Their best with Hagar by a long shot,IMO. Guess this guy was likely unhappy about any of the Sammy records then. Oh,well.. his loss. But to say it in print just shows what a 'knob' he was. T

I'll scope it out. I only have Performocracy tho. That has some of their strongest material.IMO. Haven't gotten the last one but I should get back to them and see how it goes. Yup-- singer is a monster vocalist! T

Just respinning their last cd here- Spirit. Man,what a monster of a record! From '13,so just wondering if they're still going and any news of a follow-up. Spirit would be really tough to beat tho. T

I thought that,but thought you may have implied he also wrote music and had some inclination about songwriting. Typical armchair critic then... T

Can't say I have,Brent. I speak generally about the guy--I've tested the waters with him seversal times in the past. Always come away with his over-accentuating style and it drives me batty. No doubting the guy's talents,but I want to hear a song SUNG,not constant 'lookee what I can do!!' approach. But I will check into the cd you mentioned--thanks,bro! T

You are stretching here,guy. Ummmm,let's think again: Hold The Line and I'll Supply The Love come to mind firstly. And-- his vocals sharing lead in Roseanna make that song. You'd better check Africa again..he has more than that one line. He sings all through that chorus every time and it wouldn't have anywhere NEAR the same effect without him there. Not to mention the MANY other album tracks he

Funny...big fan here too, but my thoughts totally reversed. Sounds like a bad idea and for what it's worth Andrew...count me out for hearing Hughe's versions-whatever those are. His glory days are just that-- in DP singing occasionally. And not OVER singing. T

Love Crossroads Moment AND Extra Moments. Great songwriting and JJ sounded awesome. I dig Scherer's voice but not as much as JJ's. He was the man. T

If we could get songs that mirror the best stuff from both Euphoria and Sparkkle Lounge,we'll have one effin' great cd!! T

Quite the rave-up. Will need to see how ol' Cov sounds on this tho. Stormbringer is perhaps a bad indicator,as it's so over-produced and even tho DC is buried in the mix,he sounds dauntingly rough there. We'll see how other tunes are. Anyone heard Burn yet? How can you even come close to topping a track like that?! Even Paice himself said he couldn't exactly duplicate his drum takes on that song

Yeah? How'd that work for them sales/popularity-wise? I'd bet even Luke realizes now that they need that lead,high register voice to broaden their appeal per album. Hence the re-enlisting of Kimball since then. And of course now JW. It's a big part of the band's appeal and last I checked..most of the success they've had has been from songs with Kimball on lead. Ok-Africa was Paich but Kimball was

Well..copping Delp is no mean feat. We're a half step down on everything,so it helps with range a tad. Still--when you're talking the likes of a Delp or Perry.. always a challenge. ;-) T PS: on a side note-- trying to get down with Billy Idol's White Wedding or ZZ Top stuff is a challenge from the OTHER end! lol

Now THAT's a perfect record-- 100% all the way. They showed how it's done way back in '75. I can still listen to that album even today with amazement. And that being the radio has played most of it to death over the years. a tried and true classic and perhaps top of the list as hard melrock albums go. I recall hearing More Than A Feeling and perhaps Peace Of Mind on radio and running out to get

Never got the cd/dvd. He likely couldn't sing it on the day. He's never sung a higher track than that one. I'd almost bet it had to be played in that key,and he just had to belt it out in the studio that way. Always thought of how he'd pull that song off on tour. This said-- I saw them twice wuith Hagar and I'm pretty sure they did the tune both shows. I was amazed that he pulled it off in fine f

I should probably reinvestigate these guys. I listened to samples of Albion,and they sounded pretty cool,as I recall. That seems their best effort,or close-by most accounts. What I recall is that most of the material is pretty plodding tho. Will scope them out yet again on the new one and see if anything sticks.. T

Understandable. Still Jim at the pen (tho it says Scherer had a hand in some writing?). Totally sounds like POL with a different,yet still upper register,singer. That with a pinch of Survivor. But POL had that element too. So I wonder what the deal was concerning Hitchcock with this record. Jim just decided to make this one with Scherer,obviously. T

In retrospect...perhaps not. But that said-- I adored most of every album with the original line-up. Got into them on Song For America-and was blown away by them. They certainly were a cut above most every band I was into around that time. Went back and got the debut,and it wasn't long before their new album-Masque,was announced. I got to see them on that tour opening for Bad Company (Desolation

Yup-just flipflop our views on the two guys,Bob. But I don't mean to sound like I don't 'rate' JW. He's a fine singer in his own right. The issue I have is his tonality reminding me of Michael Jackson a bit. And I do cringe at that-can't help that. What he DOESN'T have that Kimball had it spades,was SOUL in his voice. Guess I just prefer the more emotional presentation of BK over JW,if that helps

I wasn't too sussed over Angels Have Fallen or How My Heart Cries Out For You (I believe Walsh tunes?) with it's weird little 'live' midsection. The rest I really enjoyed tho. LOVE Reason To Be and Away From You in particular. But it was a slight step back from the prior records,perhaps. Still damn solid tho. I enjoyed AudioVisions a lot,too (tho the differences in writing styles were really gett

Will Elliot and Cov still have voices left by then? I'll give 'em one thing...they've got balls to spare! Kudos to them for their tenacity on tour,I suppose. T

Maybe he thinks his writing back then was trying to mirror Livgren's? Until later on,when he obviously startef branching off on his own topics that were in direct opposition to Kerry's ( Got To Rock On?). Hence his inevidable departure.This may be why they didn't want to address Monolith and Audiovisions. Too much bad blood by then (?) T

My least fav tho I'm not big on Kingdom Of Desire either. Or Tambu. Without a high register singer,hearing Luke and/or Paich for an entire record just doesn't cut it for me. Not enough variance there. That said,they're both decent records in their own right..and Fahreheit WAS light and fluffy-in essence..VERY pop-laiden for them. T
