First heard of them when their 'Positively Human, Relatively Sane' lp got released in the states, and I was immediately a fan- I gave the promo copy a lot of in-store play and sold quite a few to people who heard it. I still prefer it over “No Static” but both the Rock Candy cd reissues are excellent.

No link- it's on Axs TV if you have that channel on your cable or dish. The full interview probably won't show up on youtube or anywhere else for quite awhile.

Didn’t reveal a whole lot that any knowledgeable Styx fan wouldn’t already know, but regardless Dan Rather always does a good interview. Of course the DDY topic had to be covered. Both Tommy and JY acknowledged that the creative tension between the 3 helped to produce some great music in their prime, but clearly the ongoing relationship friction with Dennis eventually just wore everyone else

Eddie Trunk has said "you either loved angel or you never really heard them"- and most of the folks here seem to fall into the latter camp- nonetheless I'm surprised by the lack of promo buzz/ news about these 2 guys going out and doing these "reunion" shows together. In their day Angel was a very popular touring act back here on the midwest circuit, great musicians and showme

Aussie Dave Wrote: ------------------------------------------------------- > Real shame they didn't make more than one record... IIRC they did make an unreleased 2nd album (or at least recorded the demos for a 2nd album), I think I have it on a bootleg somewhere. I don’t remember for sure but I seem to recall it was nowhere near as good as the first, I’d have to dig it out to verify.

No Control is IMO his best overall album, without question. Can’t Hold Back is good, but Where’s The Party has not aged well at all.

I made a personal "best of 1977-1991" 2CD set several years ago- here's what's on it. As previously mentioned "Ready Eddie" was also very good (as well as featuring production and guitar from Frankie Sullivan).

Caught Ritchie last night at Wentz Concert Hall in Naperville IL, 10 minutes from my house. Beautiful venue and just the 3rd date on his U.S. solo tour. As much as I enjoy his work in other things like Winery Dogs, he really is phenomenal as a solo artist live. If you’re familiar at all with his solo albums and have a chance to check him out on this tour I highly recommend it! The guy plays and

Lots of good ones mentioned thusfar. Here in Chicago we were raised on great PP bands back in the day: Cheap Trick, Off Broadway, Pezband, Shoes, Enuff, etc. Aside from that tho, two of my all time favorites I haven't seen mentioned yet: The Records- s/t: on Virgin records (1979), great British power pop! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uyblTaT1g0U ...their 2nd album Crashes (1980) is

As a fellow bassist, Mars was a HUGE influence on my playing. Call it "feel, groove, flow", whatever- he had it in spades. As much as I was a fan of big names like Jack Bruce, Geddy Lee, Chris Squire, John Entwistle etc., the guy I wanted to sound and play just like was Mars. I spent many hours rewinding and rewinding tapes, copying his licks. RIP Mars. IMO one of the best and most u

Yep, has been available on Japan as a double for a few years now. I concur that this is the place to start with solo Nils at his most badass self- for starters here’s a Rockpalast concert video of a show from 1979 with the Night After Night lineup you can check out: https://youtu.be/uvr24-b6uNE

I wouldn't rank Nostradamus as their #2 album, but I can see why someone else might. I really do enjoy it quite a lot and agree it is vastly underrated. It's a return of sorts to their early prog roots, but goes well beyond that. It's a concept piece that is (intentionally) unlike and incomparable to any other album in their catalog, and requires the listener to go into it with a very different m
