I loved Jeff's version of Message of Love. Trial By Fire really doesn't get enough airtime in the band's live set nowadays. I was also pleased to see Jeremy Hunsicker doing Forever In Blue with his tribute band - fit like a glove!

Okay, my bad - not a 'project' as in different singer, same pool of musicians and songwriters, but forming a supergroup or original band around him to showcase his voice. Or else finding him a lead vocal slot with an established group. Reminds me a bit of Ronnie Romero - they just need to find the right situation for him, although I must say his original material is fantastic and his band are no

Not sure about other bands, but don't forget Agent recorded it twice - originally with Rick Livingstone and then in 96 with the excellent Troy Reid?

Do you guys have artists or bands that you think labels could be doing something with? My pick would be Eugent Bushpepa. He's an Albanian metal singer who has supported Deep Purple amongst others. He represented Albania in Eurovision last year with his self written sing 'Mall' (Yearning). Yes, it's Eurovision so it's softer and more accessible than his usual fare, but check out the vocal rang

Also bugs me when they cut out the band's interaction with the audience between songs - surely that's part of the live experience? One of my favourite live albums is Magnum's The Spirit - Live. Great sense of atmosphere, audience response and the band are on fire. The arrangements and performances are actually better than the studio versions.

Of the Payne era, Aria would be my favourite, hands-down (or should that be hands Downes?!) Some great tracks on that one. Anytime, Desire, Feels Like Love, Enough's Enough, Military Man, etc.

I much prefer Meyer's guitar style to Howe's too. My favourite songs from Alpha are My Own Time and The Last to Know. I don't often see them mentioned.

Very excited for the new Soleil Moon album! Loved the last one and I don't think it got the attention it deserved. One of my go to albums and the production was impeccable. I'd also missed the news that 'Stranded' are releasing a new album... kind of. Disappointed to hear this is basically a different project entirely with Troy Reid on vocals, but I'm intrigued to hear it as I love his voice

I just read that Big Big Train's new album has gone into the UK album charts at number 35 and is at number 2 in the U.K. Rock chart. A huge and well deserved accomplishment. Check them out if you haven't heard them! One of my favourite prog bands and I think they would appeal to a lot of melodic rock fans too. Alive - music video (tribute to Journey's Separate Ways vid?!

Yes, I know they're different songs entirely, but I'd take Bad English's World Gone Wild over Journey's any day! Also true of pretty much all of Marcie Free's demos too (although I have a soft spot for Jonathan Cain's Wish That I Was There With You). Continuing the Steinman demo theme - Karine Hannah's Braver Than We Are demo is far superior to Loaf's Going All the Way Is Just a Start, an

Here's a controversial one: Survivor - Eye of the Tiger. The demo (heard in Rocky 3) has more energy and dynamics to it for me. It's a little faster too.

Most of us have heard the phrase "chasing the demo" but what are your prime examples of demos that you prefer to the final studio versions? A couple to kick us off: Meat Loaf - A Kiss Is A Terrible Thing to Waste (the demo, recorder as Metal Philharmonic, featuring Kyle Gordon, the New York Philharmonic, Sandy Farina and Brian May is far superior to the studio version on Very B
