Poison really showed growth from album to album... Look was sleazy glam rock Open Up was more straight ahead showing a little bit of a blusey side Flesh was their most diverse album with a little bit of everything and improved mature lyrics Native Tongue was an extension of that but with Richie Kotzen's influence all over it. After that....I'd rather not say. Bret does have his moments in

I thought Love Will Set You Free was the perfect single choice and surprised that even VH1 Classic did now play it. They played Lay Down Your Love though from the previous album, which I personally do not like. It's really all the same... I just prefer the more melodic songs. One of These Days and Summer Rain sound like they could've been hits for classic rock/ballad radio...maybe even countr

Farrarsm, I can't say that for this album. I knew Extreme but this was the song that really put them on the map. I did however buy Mr Big "Lean into It" as soon as it came out after falling in love with Green Tinted Sixties Mind...which I still think it as overlooked gem. The whole record is great but To Be With You had a spark... a magic to it. Was VERY happy to see it become a

What/Who is this exactly? Obviously it's a tribute to Motley with the lyrics too....

OK...I'm probabaly the most out of touch person in the world. I've never heard this Stay With Me Song. On first listen... BARELY... I kinda hear the chorus similarities but it's not a rip off. That Stay With Me song sucks and Tom Petty I Won't Back Down is one of the greats... Seriously, the vocal delivery of Stay WIth Me is so "cut and paste" sounding I can't believe it was eve

I saw on the frontpage that Doug re-formed his previous band Burning Rain. That was very surprising to me considering they had no hits. Why bother? Why did he leave Whitesnake in the first place? His guitar playing fit perfectly in that band and that certainly helped him perform to more people than Burning Rain will. For a relatively unknown, I would think Whitesnake would be a dream gig.

Vince did sound good. I think focused and sober, he's fine. I was surprised how stripped back the performance was though. No pyro...and Motley concerts have the most pyro I've ever seen. Plus, Tommy was playing a small drum kit. For SOUND purposes, that was the smart way to go but that wasn't representative of an actual Motley show. Mick's guitar being totally de-tuned and muddy sounding

What bothers me the most is that in New York at least, he's charging the same if not MORE than he would for a full band show. He's got the fan base still even though he has no current hits. He could EASILY do a full band tour playing theaters.. maybe even a lot of the SAME places he's playing on this tour.

Just about everyone here is a fan of Jimi and Survivor. Those songs and that beautiful voice will live forever! I do have a sidebar question though.....how did I'm Always Here end of as the Baywatch song? That's not even in my top 20 favorites from him but it's one of his most successful songs for sure! I just looked it up and saw that it was only for the reruns. It's not even the original

Agreed with Julio...his first solo album is my favorite albums he's ever made. Fantastic record. I gotta give that another listen tomorrow!!

Some other bands have re-recorded albums or hits as more of a cash grab so that they own the masters. Is that the story with Haren Scarem as well?

For awhile there, Enuff Znuff were my favorite band. There first album was good but Strength and Animals... were amazing. They never matched those 2 albums though. 1985 is fun for what it is...a collection of early demos. Seven is fantastic...again, for what it is..which is a more mellow side of the band. Other than that, they had a few songs here and there that were great lke Saturday

There was even a Billy Joel documentary where his drummer (at the time) Liberty DeVito said the entire band had a hand in the arrangements. Billy wrote the songs but I'm sure the other guys had their hand in writing their own individual parts. With BANDS it's a little different though...you would think it would be more of a collaboration but eventually the all mighty dollar takes over. Then,

Saw him last year and going to see him again later in the summer. The guy had a LOT of hits and he strings them together live effortlessly.

OK...I hear it a little bit but not enough to say it's a rip off. A million songs have that decending chord thing. As for Cinderella. I was in a cover band for 4 months and the drummer referred to Nobody's Fool as the "walking death drone"! LOL... It's funny when you hear it from the drummer's point of view!

This upsets me to no end. There was only ONE song released from those sessions called The Chosen One on Johnny's Made in California record....which incindently is my personal favorite Johnny Lima album. Now, you're telling me that the international postal service has taken poccesion of this record??? Wait a second....Ted sang Don't Blame it on Love and JOhnny sang Blame it on Love...so th

Wow... about time!!!! Access All Areas and New Jersey the Videos were VHS releases. Now, they will be issued on DVD...hopefully enhanced as much as possible from the original source. Sons of Beaches was the original title for New Jersey so I'm GUESSING that we are finally going to get some demo songs like Now and Forever, Growing Up the Hardway, etc.. in "album quality" format.

I gave the album a few more listens. My main problem is that I just can't get into the songs themselves yet, as much as I love the production and Sebastian in general. I think the weirdness I'm hearing is that he is singing VERY clean and smooth, which is healthy...but there are multiple tracks/layers which give a somewhat robotic sound, like he's singing with himself. There are other pa

The dude can still belt it out live and is an awesome hard rock/metal frontman for sure... but his voice on the new record and previous record are so processed and un-natural sounding. It doesn't sound like regular autotune like you hear on dance records. Does anyone know what effects he's using in the studio?

KISS, to me, are a band that really are about their full body of work, not any one album. I guess you could group all of the "make up" and "non-make up" albums as 2 separate bands.... I really only like 2-4 songs on each of their albums. They were really a "singles" band especially in the 80's.

Sennheiser HD280 pro. They're big but the sound it crystal clear and they block out background noise. Oh....and they don't slip off my head!!!

How about Shark TanK??? Come on brother! I don't think there has been a music act on the show. You'd be perfect. You're self contained and have a good track record. You can get one of those guys to give you the promo push you deserve! They'll probably want at least 50% though!!!

I had the pleasure of meeting Vince Neil after a Motley show last year. It was clear that he was on his own. It was not a "band" like it was before. I really don't think it has ever been the same since the early 90's when he left or was fired. They still put on a hell of a show and sound great. That's all that matters. But what's really got me is that Motley is YOUNGER than so m

Guys...we figured this one out way back with Hysteria!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jaiaaar88EM Def Leppard just used a Rockman with added EQ. That's pretty much it! It's just compression and chorus. Having brand new strings helps too to make it sound brighter. And use a thin or medium pic.

LOVE this band. They are very comfortable in their 80's sound. Big production, tight musicianship, great harmonies and songs mostly about girls. What's not to like? I have to admith though, I liked Animal Attraction more. It was more romantic. The new one is more of a party album. It SOUNDS great but no single song really stands out that I would play for someone to check out.
