To be honest, I think people are missing Chris's point! I know he talks thru his arse most of the time (;o) ) and doesn't do himself any favours by goading the anal AOR faithful among us, but I think he makes a reasonably valid point here!

The TNT sounds phenomenal, as did the last Westworld album! Quality melodic rock worthy of global recognition! Problem is, these sort of albums, the ones which actually could make a difference, will reach absolutely fucking nobody beyond this diminishing genre unless someone has the balls to bring the music to a newer and ultimately larger audience!

Playing a showcase gig like The Gods etc may shift a few extra units on the day but we r once again preaching to a converted crowd! It does nothing for the future sustainability of the band, let alone the scene!

Now I am not suggesting for one minute that SPAN or anyone like that would be the right band to run with, but aiming at larger gigs, albeit as a support act, is surely no bad thing. I mean, take last years Monsters of Rock for example. What an opportunity that would have been to push someone like Harem Scarem, Jeff Scott Soto or even relative newcomers Pride, to the right kind of audience instead of forcing us to watch the unfathomable shite that was Gary Moore and Y&T. I guess it is all down to money but sometimes, one must speculate to accumulate and surely the bands we r talking about here would have blown that Monsters crowd away!

I just think it is sad that bands worthy of far more recognition seem doomed to comparitive anonymity due to pigeon holed exposure!

Yes I have finished!
