The first time I ever saw Bon Jovi live was on the Slippery When Wet tour. Richie was tearing it up that night and I looked at my friend Jeff and said "Richie is the talent in that band!" I was right...

As big of a Leppard fan as I am, I really don't play their music around the house at all. My son took it upon himself to start asking me questions about the band, breaking out Pryomania and Hysteria and picking out his favorite tunes - Rocket, Sugar, Rock of Ages, Love Bites, etc... So his buildup and reaction to this show was really genuine which was fun to watch...

I have - I saw H&O open for Chicago in 1998 and I also saw them two years ago. Really fun show last night, despite the drizzling rain throughout the entire set.

Last night was my daughter's first ever concert at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado - and my 500th concert overall. Hall & Oates, baby!

I think the straw that broke the camel's back with DeGarmo was working so long and hard on 1997's "Hear In The Now Frontier" and seeing the record label blow up just as the CD was released. So all their support went out the window and he threw his hands up and said, "That's it. Enough already." There's some good stuff on that album, but there's also a LOT of filler (i.e.

Like I said, I was there. There were probably a million things running through his head at that moment. #1 - he may have witnessed his lead singer die in front of his eyes. #2 - his band is done. #3 - his career is over. All of these things happening in about .2 seconds. I don't judge his reaction at all.

I just went to YouTube and found the video - I never would have guessed a video even existed of that since it was all the way back in 1992. As it turns out, my memory is slightly off. I thought he jumped off the lighting truss first and then it started to sway and then it came down. You can clearly see it started coming down while Mike was still on it - then he jumped off trying to get out o

Yup, I saw the whole thing. They were opening for Slaughter on a Halloween Night show. Mike started climbing a lighting truss to get the crowd going, but it wasn't supported by anything. When he jumped off, he was still singing but he didn't notice the truss was rocking back and forth. A few seconds later, it came down and just crushed him from behind. Obviously the show (and Steelheart's

No opening act, Foreigner were the headliner. Hudson Gardens is more of a festival vibe, 40-60 year-olds sitting in chairs sort of vibe. Several of the songs were longer, extended versions and they also filled time with keyboard solos, guitar solos and drums solos. So it wasn't a "short" concert.

I broke out that album yesterday after the concert - because I wanted to hear more Kelly and Foreigner didn't go out of their way to play even one "new" track on Sunday night.

Ross Halfin in Def Leppard's "Behind The Music" episode: "I mean they really were the party band. All these bands, Metallica, Motley Crue, you know, sorta think they were so tough. You couldn't touch Def Leppard for it. It's just the fact they hid it really, really well."

Rick Allen mentioned about five years ago that he started to write an autobiography but stopped because the experience was too emotional. I hope he picks up where he left off at some point, because that would be an interesting read. I'm sure Joe Elliott could write a great book, as well. As much as I love Def Leppard, Phil Collen's book was a bit dull.

Def Leppard played their first ever show at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado on August 13, 1988 – 28 years ago today. This was the summer leg of Leppard’s Hysteria tour and I had front row center for the first show on 8/13 thanks to my friend Herb the track star. This was back when security allowed a free-for-all run from the parking lot to the seats – at 6,400 feet above sea l

Here's the new Bon Jovi music video... Good tune. I love how they barely show Phil X's face during the guitar solo. Quick editing - let's not alarm the casual fan that Richie Sambora isn't in the band anymore... https://youtu.be/_Ri2KEiXlNk

I remember vividly arriving at the record store (Sound Warehouse) at 9:59am and they said they hadn't received Hysteria yet. So I booked it to the other Sound Warehouse about 10 minutes away and they didn't have it either. Drove back to the first store and it finally arrived. I bought one LP and one cassette copy, threw the tape in the tape deck, FF'd past "Women" because I'd heard t

It's not your voice, it's not your career, it's not your livelihood... Nor is it mine. Take it up with Joe Elliott personally.

Agreed on last year's tour as well. Styx's sound was much better than Leppard's at the Denver show I saw.

Agreed with your comments 100%. I forgot to mention the responsibility Leppard have to both REO Speedwagon and Tesla, too. It is big business and I know Joe isn't happy to have to use a vocal tape for a song or two. But this is about the big picture and his ability to sing for another 20 years...

There's too much money on the line for the band, the promoter, the managers, the road crew, Ticketmaster, the merch companies, the venue, the ushers, the concession staff, etc... Nobody likes to cancel a show unless it's absolutely necessary. If Joe feels he needs a tape to get through the last song of the evening - after singing the entire set live - given the circumstances of his overall vo

So now Joe Elliott has to issue a press release to announce he may or may not be lip-syncing one song along to a previously recorded live version he's already sung? Nonsense.
