I pay about 1% attention to lyrics. Music is about the SONGS, the melody, the hooks, chorus, production, talent, voice. Like when Joe Elliott says Def Leppard songs are "deep and meaningless." It's more about the sound and the delivery of the lead vocal than the actual written words.

http://loudwire.com/sweet-lynch-september-exclusive-lyric-video-premiere/ Not much new happening in the world of classic 80's hard rock these days, but Michael Sweet and George Lynch just released a full lyric video for the track "September" - a clear September 11th tribute. Classic Sweet vocals, love the 80's style riffing in the verses. It's a shame this album won't come out fo

I live in Denver which is roughly the #20 radio market in the U.S. - in bigger cities you literally have dozens of stations with every format imaginable. Classic Rock - everything up until the mid-90's (two stations in town) Rock - a mix of new rock and some Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, AC/DC, etc... Mix 100 - soccer mom stuff. Everything from Bruno Mars to Mr. Mister KOOL - Oldies - which now re

Bangles is the name of a Denver rock club - it doesn't exist anymore. Can't tell you how many shows I saw there. When they ran commercials on the radio, their tagline was "Bangles... where Denver roooooocks!" I've seen Cinderella, Steelheart, Eric Gales Band, Lynch Mob, etc... Great venue.

I didn't see Joel leaving NR because they seem to be a much more active band than Whitesnake. I was wrong!

Whatever personal differences they have/had with Jeff Watson, I'd consider bringing him back as opposed to bringing in ANOTHER "new" guy who may or may not work out. Joel is fantastic in Night Ranger, but how many times can you mess with the chemistry? At least Jeff Watson already knows 95% of the current Night Ranger set. I'd love to see it...

Andrew said a lot more than nothing. He certainly didn't confirm that someone had actually guessed correctly. If he knew who it was, fine. But say nothing NOTHING and let the rest of us have fun guessing instead of throwing us off the trail.

I remember watching that entire TV series, but I never investigated any of the bands or their music. I thought they were good, but nothing exceptional that would be good enough to break big.

There's no such thing as a bad Def Leppard song. They may not be hits, but they are all well written. I LOVE KISS to death, but they have dozens of awful songs in their catalog.

There's only 2-3 "filler" tracks that aren't doing much for me but a very solid effort overall. Nice to have some new Kix after 20 years and really hoping they put together a small U.S. tour to support the album.

http://chirb.it/eKcwes Here's another short song sample of "Divine", from the Sweet/Lynch album, coming spring of 2015 on Frontiers Records. Lynch is kicking so much ass here, I love it. And I'm glad this song sounds nothing like Stryper. But Spring 2015? That's 7-8 months away!!

Be sure to check out Midnight Dynamite and Blow My Fuse - the height of their 80's power.

I believe both the Best Buy and Walmart websites allow you to check "in store stock" before you leave home. I checked BestBuy.com yesterday AM and most of the stores in the Denver area stocked the Kix CD. It gave me the opportunity to see which stores had it and which didn't. Nice feature.

Funny you mention the sound check, because Michael had some microphone and mic stand issues right before this song (I cut it off the video.) He said, "I'm about to launch this mic stand!" And the mic had a low battery or something, because they swapped it out and had to mic check a new one for a few minutes.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lmlP8IS08s Def Leppard is my all-time fav band and Phil is my fav guitarist. KISS has always been my #2 band, so seeing them invite Phil on stage is pretty cool in my book. (Not to mention Joe Elliott doing the "You Wanted The Best..." intro a few night ago. I'm glad he played in his own style as opposed to trying to copy Tommy copying Ace's origi

STRYPER - LOUD N' CLEAR http://youtu.be/3cE1x45PIF8 Here's some "sweet" video I shot from the Stryper gig in Denver last night. I was sick and probably shouldn't have even gone to the show, but I stuck around for 7 tracks or so before I couldn't take it anymore. They opened up with two new tracks including Revelation before going into Loud N' Clear, Reach Out, Calling On You, Fr

When Phil first joined Leppard on the Pyromania tour, all he ever did was noodle through solos. I have the video of their Montreal, CAN show and it was annoying to listen to. No phrasing, just blitzing. He's matured into a MUCH better player and more tasteful since those early days. Not saying he's the greatest of all-time, but give credit where credit is due.

The track originally featured on the reverse side of Mott The Hoople’s classic All the Young Dudes, a hit in August 1972. The band have also announced a UK tour for December.

Specifically looking at the Viva! Hysteria DVD, Phil and Viv are pretty much playing the album and solos note for note so I'm not sure what "noodling" you are talking about.

I can hear Viv just fine - I thought the mix on the DVD/CD was excellent. But Phil is always going to be the "lead" guitar player in Leppard just due to his seniority. That's not to say Viv doesn't get his moments to shine - Bringin' On The Heartbreak, Love Bites, Armageddon It, the riff in Gods of War...

Respectfully disagree with you that Phil Collen is not a great guitar player. Phil was at his "sloppiest" on the Pyromania tour when he noodled his way through every lead break. He's matured into a very tasteful player and writer since and he's a very important part of Def Leppard's sound. The In The Round video was 1988. I was 17 years old. I was there. Now I'm 43.
