Terry, I will attempt to answer your question. Speaking as someone who spent a good portion of my career life working with people suffering from addiction, I think it’s important to consider the underlying medical factors that can determine why some people become addicts, while others can take it or leave it. Addiction is defined as a disease by most medical associations, including the Amer

Aside from ‘Better Days’ – Single B-Side and ‘Virginia’ – Foxes Soundtrack, that bonus disc does nothing for me. Three versions of ‘20th Century Foxes’... facepalm.

Rick Medlocke and Blackfoot was not a Blackfoot album- it was supposed to be a Rick Medlocke solo album- the record company decided to stick the Blackfoot name on it (same story as Tony Iommi's solo album becoming Black Sabbath's "Seventh star"), so I've always viewed it in that context of a different thing altogether from Blackfoot- it's a killer solo album!

Ten is another one of those bands that for me started off great but increasingly lost my interest. Really enjoyed the first 3 albums (S/T, Name Of The Rose, The Robe)... and I continued to buy the next few albums after those, but enjoyed them less and less, finally abandoned ship after Far Beyond The World In 2001. As others have said, just got bored with it.

The debut MH album was outstanding, the 2nd very good... and then things kinda went downhill for me, from there on I lost interest. I wasn’t a huge “ southern rock” fan (in a genre specific way), but I appreciated the blending of rock with country/folk/blues/jazz elements, and I had 4 favorites for sure: 1. Allman Bros (I was literally raised musically on those early albums) 2. Blac

Well, the last Hardline album "Human Nature" was very good- certainly the best since Double Eclipse- and the other Hardline albums had their moments (albeit nowhere near in the same vein as DE). But with ADV already struggling to come up with songs that aren't completely derivative or redundant for Hardline, Revolution Saints (and who all else), it's no surprise that a "Johnny &

I do have that 02/14/77 Tokyo Japan full show from the “On Earth…” tour. Haven’t played it in years, but as I recall quite a performance it is, too. The downside is that it’s an audience recording and as such maybe not up to releasable standards (it is hilarious listening to teenage Japanese girls screaming Mickey!! Punky!! at the top of their lungs over and over again- lol)! I’ll hav

Agreed- I have a few Angel live boots, and while their recording quality isn’t as good, several performances are superior to their “Live Without A Net” official album, which was ok but was somehow lacking energy both production and performance-wise.

“IMHO, he truly was the whole package. As you pointed out, he maintained a very strong voice for many years; the women loved him; he exuded confidence (which is very ironic, given what he has to say in his biography); he was athletic and energetic; he could work an audience like few others..” I think Don was absolutely right on this one, T- sure KISS may be schtick and cornball, but being

Exactly- which is why I’m still dumbfounded that he would leave Black Star Riders to go deal with these ass clowns full time. Was the money Ratt generates really that good? I thought he fit perfectly in BSR (and I’m not that sold on the guy who replaced him on the last tour). He hasn’t missed a studio album yet so I wouldn’t mind seeing him go back if they’d have him.

So according to Eddie Trunk, DeGrasso opted out of this latest Ratt debacle. I said back when he gave up the solid Black Star Riders gig to pursue this bs that he would be kicking himself. From touring on decent sized bills and festivals with BSR to playing a hand full of shows with the DeMartini/Cavazo lineup- then total collapse. I’m sure Jimmy will land on his feet, but man you have to quest

Amen brother. First off, being a “big name” guy is vastly overrated. Vic has been around for years and played on some stuff I’ve really enjoyed. Anyone calling him a “club musician” is just being biased or ignorant. Vic is very well respected among his peers, including Neal Schon for example (who happens to actually know a bit about playing guitar)- lol.

Well I’ll clarify it for you: I have every solo album Sammy’s ever done, and regardless of who’s played on them none of them have ever blown me away as far as allowing the the musicians to really go off, including MTM. I think that has always had more to do with Sammy than the ability of the musicians involved; he’s always focused his solo albums on his songwriting more than anything else

Lots of examples come to mind, T- I’d much prefer a new Chickenfoot or BBC album to another generic ADV/ Frontiers “melodic rock” project like the upcoming Gioeli-Castronovo album. And I say that as someone who likes both those guys voices, but I’m just tired of that formula being repeated ad nauseum.

Nope, imo Ten 13 sounds like a band, whereas MTM sounds like various collections of musicians playing individual songs with no consistency... it works on a few songs but I’ve always thought that as an album it’s a bit of a mess. Different tastes I guess.

Chicken foot = Great? Whatever the definition of that is, probably not. But still far better than a large percentage of the generic melodic rock albums that some folks on here rave about as great.

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.
