Lol... Actually the bands mentioned were for stylistic reference- quality is in the ear of the beholder. As for DC, not a low blow- it was a compliment because I believe he'd be great singing in an authentic range over a more stripped back production rather than trying to stretch his voice to the limits as on the last couple albums. But I suppose one man's screeching is another man's gold.

Lyncho, by "southern blues" I'm talking the soulful side (Memphis, the Delta, etc.)not "southern rock". Check it out, I think you'll dig it. As I listened to it I couldn't help thinking this is the kind of album Coverdale should be making now. This is how to do "kick ass and in your face" without screeching your way thru an over-compressed wall of noise in anothe

The band is an international cast of relatively unknown but experienced players: Ireland's David Byrne on vocals and Mark Dempsey on bass guitar, Polish guitarist Michal Kulbaka, and South African drummer Marius Appelgryn. I know there's a lot of bands attempting to be "classic hard blues rock" going around right now. A lot of them don't impress me much. But these guys have done an

I agree. Man, that ballad "Too Many Tears" - he just kills this shit! If I could croon like this, I'd wouldn't waste my voice on screaming. Ain't nothing wrong with aging gracefully... https://youtu.be/4yNMM11VpxY

I was listening to the "Restless Heart" album the other day... granted some of the material on that album could have been more ummm, "kick ass and in your face"...but I do like the lower tones/ no screaming style he sang with on that album- it's a more natural fit for where his voice is now and I wish he would continue to sing in that lower range.

Yep, would definitely agree that Winger is the "side gig"- has been for quite some time and will continue to be unless or until he leaves WS.

Yeah some situational similarities there with Viv in DL- even though both maintained other outlets for their creativity, you gotta wonder how guys that talented kept their egos in check all those years playing second fiddle to Aldrich and Collen... Of course I suppose the paycheck helps, lol!

Well I don't if I'd say "better"... but he's a very capable writer. And as much as I am a huge fan of Doug, one thing I would say is that he's versatile almost to a fault- by that I mean that he can play anything, but lacks an immediately recognizable signature sound, as opposed to a Sykes or Beach where you know immediately who it is. That was part of my issue with the last couple WS a

The original "bluesy" WS was a very different band- thus my referral to 1987 as a "Coverdale/ Sykes" album as opposed to a WS album. I get your song by song breakdown, but for me (and I think for Coverdale too based on his comments) the sound and vibe of the 1987 collaboration pointed toward huge future potential that ultimately was squandered. For my personal taste I wish

By nature, prog rock/ metal are broad generic labels that get applied to lots of artists with very different stylistic approaches. I absolutely agree that Threshold is hard to categorize/pinpoint because their approach incorporates a wide range of influences across the prog rock/ metal spectrum. As a (comparatively) little known band still trying to expand their fan base, I can understand the

Hot Sauce, no matter what new name you come up with to keep posting here, you've always failed to comprehend that preferences are a matter of individual taste. For anyone who truly appreciates music, "who's more popular" and what "many people" think is irrelevant. Perhaps you could come up with some fresh material to go with the new name?

"...great selection of songs from Reach/debut/SIN and Faithless from Dig in Deep as well as a Waysted track" Wish we could have gotten a live DVD/CD with that track list (although the Milan set is great). Damn, I really want to see these guys live. Wish they were doing Melodicrock Fest 5 in Chicago- seems we never get a chance to see them out here in the Midwest.

Been fortunate to have seen them live in just about every incarnation over the years, and they've always been great. Suffering the loss of all the other original integral members (R.I.P. Leonard, Phil, Joey) would have sunk the credibility of many other bands, but having Dave Meniketti as the ultimate "triple threat" (singer/guitarist/ songwriter) is what separates Y&T from the pack

Have you guys given Condition Human more than a few listens? While I agree with rocknut that they haven't even reached their full potential yet, IMO it is the best QR record since Empire, and yes thatincludes Promised Land, which was a significant let down. Lots of highlights on CH- Guardian and Hellfire go to places QR hasn't gone since Rage For Order; Bulletproof (gorgeous ballad with haunting
