Hi All, I've been wracking my brains trying to think of an AOR, melodic rock or progressive rock supergroup that features a female lead singer. As a working definition, I'm aiming for a band in which all or most of the members had already been part of other famous/successful bands and made their names before the supergroup was formed (including the female lead singer). Band must be a new e

Awful news. Battlelines got me through some tough times and I'll always love that album and be grateful for John sharing it. A true talent gone too soon.

Unreleased Jim Peterik stuff is always welcome! He talked about doing a "Songs From the Vaults" release several years ago that never came about (I'm guessing legal issues). I'd also be interested in Jonathan Cain-related demos. How about the 'lost' Survivor album co-written with Joe Vana? (I know, I know, it ain't gonna happen!)

Not forgetting his work with John Wetton.

I like that David Carl Band album, but weirdly may favourite song on there is Love Is Like Heaven, which isn't a Peterik track if I remember correctly. http://youtu.be/FZQp6B-frzA Dare I mention the song Premonition on one of the Radioactive albums (by THAT guitarist...) Some great tracks with Fergie Frederiksen on three of his albums too. I was interested to hear that Brett Walker, Kev

I love Schon and Cain's work on The Hunger. Wasn't there a rumour that Bolton was considered as Journey's lead singer at one point (or did he just do a live show with them?) There are loads of Bolton demos out there, including a set of 4 or 5 tracks with Jonathan Cain, but there's also a rumour about a whole album's worth of Bolton/Cain demos. Anyone know if this is true? I'm okay with So

Some of the songs on that page listed as unreleased have now been released or shared on Jim's facebook page. Kane Roberts' Guns of Paradise and Blue Highway are both great tracks featured on his Unsung Radio compilation. Also, some of the artist names aren't correct. For example, the Joseph Williams project was called Vertigo. Has anyone ever been able to find out anything about the Hidden A

Hey all, My local second-hand record shop (the last surviving one in town) has a half-price sale after Christmas every year and I picked up some cool albums (all for less than £2.50!) - Savatage - Edge of Thorns (re-issue) CD - Kingdom Come - Bad Image CD (never been a fan, but I heard this one was more melodic) - Porcupine Tree - Lightbulb Sun CD (re-issue) - Street Talk - Destination

Personally, I'd love to hear another Catley/Hughes album. Gary already has songs written apparently - Magnum just needs to give Bob the time off to record them!

Huge shame. Mark was a major part of the Magnum sound. Can you imagine anyone else pulling off Sacred Hour with his finesse? If I were forced to pick a replacement then I'd say it's definitely time to give Paul Hodson a call. He's been absent from the scene for far too long and obviously has history with Bob's solo work and Hard Rain.

Yeah, not one of my favourites from that era either, though you can't fault the performances. "Who Cries Now" is the standout for me. Great song.

I love 'Belief' too - no, it isn't the same style as the predecessors, but there's wonderful, mellow, heartfelt songwriting on that one. "Run Wild, Run Free", "White Horses", and "Falling" are highlights for me.

Hi, While people are discussing Jimi Jamison and Survivor... Jim Peterik did an audio interview a couple of years ago where he mentions that there are two demos recorded for Too Hot to Sleep which someone found and sent to him - "Temperature Rising" (could be Temperature's Rising?) and "Runaway Heart"... I don't suppose anyone has these? His biography is full of tanta

There used to be a clip of Everyday Hero on his MySpace feed but it got taken down. I'd love to hear it again if anyone's in a sharing mood! I presume Live Life is the Peterik song? Didn't know Jimi had done a version. Presumably in those country sessions with Peterik pre-Crossroads Moment? Danny

My favourite AOR band. Whereas I liked Journey, Foreigner, etc, Survivor felt like "my" band, if that makes sense. I find it really hard to compare the Dave and Jimi eras, because they're so different and I love them both in their own ways. Dave era - my vote would go to Premonition. Jimi - Vital Signs probably edges it, but WSC is a VERY close second (if Can't Let You Go were
