I'll for sure track this town on RSD - to complement the 7" version I already have.

Here's a link to the book review I wrote several weeks ago. I really enjoyed the book, but it's not perfect. http://www.995themountain.com/blogs/sebastian-bach-18-and-life-skid-row-book-review

Forgive the quality - I had a horrible camera/video set up ten years ago, but I shot this Zebra video from the media pit at Rocklahoma 2008. The first and only time I've seen them live. Great, great band... Got to hang with them in the press tent, too... https://youtu.be/QyxB8Hn0OD0 I have seen Randy Jackson front the "Music of Led Zeppelin" show with the Colorado Symphony Orch

2017 is the 30th anniversary of Hysteria (released August 1987) so this summer tour is a bit of a missed opportunity in my opinion. They could have easily performed the entire Hysteria album front-to-back and then perform the following tracks as an encore. Let's Get Rocked Photograph Rock Of Ages Bringin' On The Heartbreak Switch 625 Everyone goes home happy!

Viva! Hysteria was a release that appealed to the die-hard fan, especially with the Ded Flatbird sets, etc... This DVD is geared toward the casual fan that liked the show and want to have that souvenir. My now 10-year-old son went to the concert with me last year and he loved watching the DVD ("It's just like you and I saw at Pepsi Center, daddy!") If you live in a big U.S. city,

No, Joe Elliott doesn't lip-sync. Yes, Def Leppard will return to Las Vegas at some point. They have an open invitation and will do their "Viva! Pyromania" residency whenever the schedule works out. I agree that taking out the between-song banter was unnecessary. AXS-TV produced "And There Will Be A Next Time" and they are going to air it in April. Still, AXS could ha

I thought half of the videos Metallica made for their new album are quality productions and the other half are cheap and unwatchable. Sometimes no video is better than a cheap video. All the Bon Jovi videos look pretty good. It makes me more likely to listen to the songs and potentially buy the album if I like what I hear.

I believe they used to autograph (1) personal item, but they may not do that any longer. Probably because it takes a lot longer for everyone to work through the meet and greet line, get photos, etc... and some fans want the band to sign guitars so they can re-sell them which they obviously don't want to do. When I met them, it was photo only...

Here's a list of the "opening acts" Def Leppard have had in the U.S. since the 90's - there's quite a few established bands they've performed with over the last two decades. Long gone are the days of an unknown getting 45 minutes on stage opening up for a national act - promoters need to sell tickets.

I thought Blotzer was fine to go out and perform those songs under the "Bobby Blotzers Ratt Experience" banner but took it too far when he ditched that idea to try to sell his band as "Ratt". And I'm not even talking about the quality of the musicianship which was excellent. But one original member - that being the drummer - who was not a primary songwriter - not good.

http://www.995themountain.com/blogs/5-questions-stephen-pearcy-ratt Interesting answer to Question #3 - maybe they are still looking for a permanent drummer? And Stephen's answer to #2 makes me wonder if a Def Leppard/Poison/Ratt package will hit the road together this summer? There's only so many bands Ratt could open up for in 2016 and Def Leppard is one of them. Major question mark in

I think Lou and Mick have been on friendly terms for a few years now, since they were both inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. My understanding is they've been talking about this reunion for a few years now, so Lou's statement seems weird in light of the full 40th anniversary tour being announced and Mick going on record saying the three other guys will perform at select shows.

Yes, but nothing in great detail. He goes on record saying he contributed to the songwriting process on several tunes, fine-tuning vocal melodies, etc... and he expected to get writing credit but didn't. As someone who has written songs before, I'm not sure I would feel comfortable giving anyone co-writing credit when they only change a few notes of a melody. Chord progression, verse, chorus

It's funny how fans want a crazy, outspoken, high-energy frontman with amazing vocal talent and ability to hold an audience of 20,000 in the palm of his hand, but then we also want that same guy to be down-to-earth, approachable, fan-friendly, clean, sober and no ego. Those guys do exist, but you can probably count them on one hand! Not disagreeing that Sebastian was likely responsible for

The other thing I noticed is how little Baz talks about Rachel Bolan and Dave "Snake" Sabo. Certainly they factor into the story, but you get the feeling he tries to ignore the subject whenever possible, opted to tell party stories instead of speculating why things went south with Skid Row, etc...

If you owned Skid Row's debut album on cassette, if you use the word "mothertrucker" in casual conversation, or if you like sex and drugs with your rock 'n' roll, you'll love Sebastian Bach's new autobiography.

Having majored in music and studied voice in college, George Michael was probably my favorite male vocalist of all-time. After a few semesters of singing Bononcini and Torelli in vocal recitals, I remember singing "Waiting For That Day" (Reprise) which was the most nerve-racking thing I've ever done.
