Never liked The Darkness, but this is a bloody great track! Love the Thin Lizzy-isms in the guitar arrangement and the fact that the vocal histrionics are very limited, thereby allowing the melody to work. Love it!

Modern country (pretty much from the 1990s to now) and classic 80s pop, plus acts like Tom Petty, Springsteen, Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles...

Worked for 14 years from 1987 as a primary school teacher. Then I got promoted into education advisory work focused on improving the teaching of English in primary schools (part of the then UK government's National Literacy Strategy). Did that until the city council here in Peterborough made me redundant in one of many austerity-based reshuffles we'd been through over the years. I now work as a

Just watching these clips again and am struck by how much they sound like a much more ballsy version of what Rick Springfield was doing circa Working Class Dog... Brilliant band!

It's very, very smooth and very West Coast and very good if you're into that kinda thing! Really glad I pledged for it.

Yeah, it just makes me wanna jump around and punch the air like an 18 year old! The two tracks I've heard from this album are 100% better than anything else I've heard on the frontage in the last year or even more. And I dunno why... I mean, it's breaking no new ground, but there's something totally irresistible about their stuff. Even though it's no less 'by numbers' than a lot of other stuff,

They don't do pre-orders as far as I'm aware.

Nobody who has responded to this thread is saying that. What I personally am saying (and I suspect that this might go for many others too) is that banning an old 80s/90s country/rock band from playing a show because of their name or their logo is not going to do one jot of good with regard to ending systematic persecution, etc, to which you rightly refer. It won't help in any way, shape or form.

I forsee a time when the Confederate flag will actually be banned. I accept that the slavery issue connected to the Confederate States causes many people offence, that and the fact that white supremacist groups have adopted Confederate iconography to support their extremist views. I obviously share the view that slavery is and was abhorrent. However, no-one bats an eyelid about discussing the h

Just received an update on the upcoming King of Hearts album via Kickstarter. It seems that after Bruce Gaitsch's stroke, the band have pulled in Phil Collen to complete the guitar tracks on the album. Interesting choice! I'm very much looking forward to seeing what comes of this...

Don't have to like Stormzy to recognise that he's great at what he does... I need to watch The Killers' set as I'd heard they were very good. Again, not an act I really like but then I can't really stand The Cure either and thought they did a great job. Robert Smith's vocals were excellent throughout.

That one single track alone (Fallin' For You) could be used as a lesson for any melodic rock wannabes as to how to actually make this stuff sound brilliant in 2019! Bloody great stuff! Can't wait for the album (and I don't say that about a lot of this kinda stuff these days, I'm very sorry to say...)

A good mate of mine organises Thin Lizzy tribute concerts in or near Peterborough every year called 'Dedication', with proceeds to the Rosien Dubh Trust. I've played at a few with various rock covers or Thin Lizzy tribute acts and met Philomena at each show I've been to - she always travelled over for them every year. She always got up on stage and gave a little speech and was just lovely to ever

Sorry, but I like iTunes. I find it intuitive and dead easy to use. I can rip CDs, download stuff I can't get on CD, create playlists, burn 'em to a CD if I want, sync my 160GB iPod with no problems... As a platform, it's always worked for me. I hope whatever app replaces it will be equally easy to use to do the same jobs...

Hated them in the 90s.. When they reformed without Knobbie, they produced some excellent pop songs in my opinion. Barlow proved himself as a songwriter of some merit at that time, to my ears anyway.

Having seen Whitesnake when Doug and Reb were in the band, I have to say I really enjoyed Reb's contributions. He was less 'widdly' and more melodic with his solos than I'd heard him in Winger. I actually thought that Doug was the more 'shredder' of the two at the time, although I agree he nailed some of the more blues-oriented stuff. I think Reb is fine for what Whitesnake have become. His style

Both arrived the other day. Been playing them one after the other. Loving the Fortune album. Sounds exactly like it should - like they recorded it in about 1987! Old school AOR done properly. 'Freedom Road' is a really great song! The only odd thing is the one track that sounds exactly like one from the old days... Michael Thompson Band not gelling quite as much with me yet. It's not bad, just

I like it a lot, but then I listen to a lot of modern rock-inflected country. I don't usually listen to Blake Shelton though, to be fair. Interested to know what's wrong with the vocals...

Samples on iTunes do sound very good, but I'm not sure I'd play it enough to warrant buying it. I'd rather hear the original versions.

Just seen on Richard Marx's Facebook page that session guitarist Bruce Gaitsch who played on Richard's early hits and who is a member of the brilliant King of Hearts, has suffered a severe stroke recently. Sad news - the man is an immense talent. Praying for a swift and full recovery for him.
