Interesting, no mention of them on the homepage either- I didn't know that. I enjoyed those albums as much as their earlier albums (with the exception of the first s/t which is an all-time classic). Regardless of the reasons, it's gotta be weird for Ralphs and Kirke to just ignore/erase 12 years of their history like it never even happened... The only hints I got watching the documentary were

A few nights back AXS TV aired a 40th anniversary documentary on the history of Bad Co. Great 2 hour doc, lots of in depth interviews with all original members, crew members, plus Ian Hunter, Ron Nevison, Boz Burrell's wife, etc... covering everything- from Free and Mott The Hoople origins, their thoughts on the making of each Bad Co. album, and up thru the present... with one glaring exception.

Musical chops and songwriting skills are two different things- Journey had both. As previously mentioned, to come up with something remotely as good as what Journey (or Thin Lizzy, or insert name here) did in their heyday, you NEED both. Assuming you have both, I see nothing wrong with incorporating elements of classic bands styles in your songwriting. But unless you also have the ability to ble

Pushing Overload Wrote: ------------------------------------------------------- > Sorry, what is your problem here? I simply answered your question regarding Terry's comment: The reason you sound like "Hot Sauce all over again" is because you are in fact the same guy who was previously known as Hot Sauce. No problem with that, is there?

Sad Wings of Destiny was their 2nd album, released in 1976. It introduced what would become the classic elements of the Priest sound and visual imagery (sans the leather- that came later) which would continue to evolve and be refined over the years. British Steel was the 1st JP album of the 80's.

Agreed, "Conspiracy Of Stars" is my favorite Vinny era album and a lot of the credit goes to Chris who did a brilliant job of making UFO sound like UFO again. I was really hoping he'd be working with them on the next one (sigh).

Sure, Priest evolved their sound toward a more commercially viable approach going onto the 80's, but I'd argue that their 70's output (Sad Wings thru Unleashed) while attracting less mainstream popularity, was equally as good, and definitely as artistically influential at the time. The Scorps did some cool/interesting albums in the Uli era, but nothing genre defining... whereas Sad Wings Of Desti

Lifelong fan of Priest, including the "Redeemer" album- but I have to agree, the song is just ok, well below classic Priest standards: forgettable riff, generic melody line, weak solos, and Halford's voice doesn't sound great either. But worse than all that (considering the talk of great writing sessions and the new production team) is that it's redundant and uninspired... I do like the

Arnel would be great especially if the goal was to do new material...Based on Schon's comments it sounds like for this one off show they're only doing material up thru the Departure album (my favorite era so I'm fine with that)... But to be an ongoing credible Journey, they'd have to be willing to do Cain era material too- I wonder if Rolie would be up for that.

I don't live in The UK, so maybe they were overhyped over there at the time but certainly not here in the states. Regardless, I did enjoy that first Skin album, but I personally preferred its 1990 predecessor- the Jagged Edge UK album "Fuel For Your Soul" w/ Matti Alfonsetti on vocals. If you haven't heard it you should give it a spin: https://youtu.be/mocP_VfME1g

I haven't heard the Watchtower stuff, but it's achieved a kind of legendary cult status. After the Don Dokken band, he started the Billy White Trio which was more of a hard psych blues rock thing and released the albums Sister Shooting Star and Illusionation. I have them, but I don't remember digging them that much overall. Most recently (the past 8-9 years) he's moved on to become a very accompl

Dave Meniketti The ultimate "triple threat" (lead singer/lead guitarist/songwriter). An incredible talent, imo one of the most underrated in rock. Last surviving original member of Y&T, and great solo albums as well, still performing at a high level, a live act not to be missed!

The song and vocals are ok, nothing earth shattering but MS sounds great and everyone else sounds decent enough. As someone on YouTube commented, Schenker Fest is like a hard rock version of "The Expendables". In a business where so many can't put their egos aside, it's refreshing to see all these old vets getting along and having fun.
