Oh man- aside from Montrose I didn’t care much for MTM at all, the songs sucked. Imo Ten 13 is by far his best solo album of that era.

I don’t understand the outrage. It is what is. Meatloaf can’t sing this stuff himself anymore, so it is more or less a tribute show. It’s entertainment. I’m not interested, but as long as the paying customers know what they’re getting, let the ticket sales speak for themselves.

Agreed- He’s always been great Busboys, Total Eclipse, Sammy solo- and the man can handle everything else in Sammy’s catalog- Montrose, EVH, Satriani...that’s what I would call “ versatile”, not “limited”.

You’re probably already aware of the “UnEarthed Volume 1 & 2” collections of classic era Y&T previously unreleased material? Vol. 1 is 17 tracks from all the way back from 1974 through 2003, and Vol. 2 is 18 tracks from 1974 through 1989. Recording and song quality on both sets is comparable to their studio albums. Vol 1 is still available direct from the Y&T website. Vol. 2 is

Ok T....so you didn’t like the singer or the “poser image”. Understandable. As singers go, Dimino has a unique style- not your taste, but IMO he was/is outstanding. As for the image, that was always a double edged sword. In hindsight being “discovered” by Simmons/ Casablanca did them no favors musically speaking. Consider this: It’s 1975, Angel’s S/T debut album comes out (th

As far as Punky’s cosmetics- whatever, could care less. I’m a lot more interested in talking about the music. I suppose its irrelevant if you never really dug Angel anyway, but imo it’s great to see original members of classic rock bands from my youth in the 70’s that are still capable of getting back together and performing at a high level. Punky is 68, Frank is 66, and I think they both

Absolutely agree- Angel are having a resurgence of appreciation and interest- the band received a lifetime achievement award at the Vegas Rocks Hair Metal Awards, we’ve gotten 2 solo albums from Punky and Frank in the past couple years (DiMino’s Old Habits Die Hard was already on Frontiers) and both those albums were pretty damn good. I’m sure Frontiers would LOVE to get these guys to do a

I have to say I was disappointed by the DOTO album, didn’t like it as much as GPS- found it a tad boring on first listen and haven’t gone back. I’ll have to revisit it and see if I missed something.

Having already adjusted my expectations accordingly based on the first track, I will say that I like this better- if for no other reason than I prefer a generic rocker to a generic ballad. I’m a fan of both guys voices, but two tracks in I’m already beginning to find this “trading verses” format a bit distracting. I think the better approach would have been one guy being the lead vocal

Received my copies of S/T and Stare At The Sun yesterday, great to finally have them legitimately released. As far as sound quality They sound very good- I’d give them a 7.5 on a 10 scale, perhaps as good a mastering job as was possible depending on what the source was of those wav files that JK was working with. These sound better than the same tracks on the Razor & Tie best of CD, so defi

A few weeks back I spoke with JK Northrup to try to determine what source material was used for these (he handled the mastering on both the JBA S/T and Stare At The Sun CDs for Escape Music). He responded “yes I did mastering for both albums. I was sent wave files that I assume were taken from the original mixes and/or from the original mastered cd. I do a lot of Mastering and Re-Mastering for

Very sad news. Condolences to family and friends on your loss. As a fellow midwesterner it’s tough to lose our peers, and another case (thinking too of Van McLain of Shooting Star) where I had no idea of Rick’s serious illness until seeing a post here. He was indeed an underrated guitarist, with a tasteful melodic style- and he could rock too when the song called for it. The Roadmaster album

I don't blame them for not being interested in repeating themselves or crafting a straightforward melodic record like their 80's era, although obviously part of the fan base would like that. I haven't dug everything they've done since, but I did like Fanatic quite a bit. The sisters sound energized throughout, and the songs rock pretty well with a bit of an experimental Zeppelin-esque vibe. I don

I haven't read JP's book- but if somebody else has, please help me understand... I get that he walked away from Survivor- but he just handed all the Survivor rights over to Frankie without contest? WHY??? Surely he must have known by then what a dick Frankie was capable of being?

Well done Carl, great to see Zal's Sin Dogs get a shout out! I stumbled on this last year but never got round to mentioning it. True perhaps not like SAHB on the surface, but I've always been a fan of Zal's work regardless of who and what, he tends to come up with something a bit different yet cool. I think anyone else who falls into that category should definitely check this out- they may dig it

Dig In Deep wasn’t a bad effort, as a Tyketto fan I liked several songs but the production was indeed poor. Reach was a big step up in both areas.

I was/ am a big fan of every album they did from the S/T debut up thru Nignt In The Ruts, they were still a classic hard rock band. But after the initial breakup I’ve been extremely disappointed by the albums they’ve done- and that includes the trio of 80’s comeback albums (Permanent Vacation, Pump, Get A Grip). Beyond the occasional song I just didn’t care for the “ new direction” t
