It’ll get a listen from streaming from me, but no more than that. I can’t imagine how much it’ll cost.

It was the sort of statement that caused Charlie Watts to punch Mick Jagger - same thing would have probably happened. Dumb.

Hurricane (for Stryper tour) Great White (for Whitesnake 1987 tour) Bad English (for Whitesnake Slip of the Tongue tour) Unfortunately, that's about as many concerts I saw in the heyday of the 80's/90's.

https://www.blabbermouth.net/news/dokken-is-planning-retrospective-box-set-says-jeff-pilson/ As a long time Dokken fan, I would have salivated for something like this. But Don's already released live material from the early days, and then retouched versions of early demos, including the infamous Back in the Streets bootleg. Plus, Lynch and Pilson have floated some of their own demos from the

+1 on this. Besides, the mechanics of a music label contract would be very technical, very boring, and always favor the label over the artist. That's been true since the inception of the music industry.

Most any other posts with hopes about the 'classic' lineup of most any band getting back together. In most cases, that boat sailed a long time ago, and I don't think the results would satisfy anyone.

Another musician gone who wasn't much younger than the youngest set of metal fans. A truly bad year indeed.

I suspect it's a step further than that; DJ is probably helping DC with some vocal duties for this tour, though he'll probably be put in other roles (additional keys, guitar, percussion, backing vocals, etc.). But I'd be willing to bet that he's being groomed as DC's replacement for the lead vocalist spot in the Whitesnake touring entity. DC said he wants to continue writing songs and recording

Maybe the moral of the story is, it's hard to do songwriting properly as a band when you're forced to be separated. You can do a lot with technology these days, but sometimes there's a limit. Not a comment on NR so much; just an observation.

And also for putting Yes in two categories. I've only heard one Yes song (maybe two) in my whole life, believe it or not.

There’s no denying the skill and shred ability that Lynch has, but that instrumental wouldn’t convince me to invest in this album. The riff sounds like a leftover from songwriting sessions, and the soloing was curiously un-melodic. I hope other tracks are stronger, but this was a bit disappointing. And this is coming from a Lynch fan.

Not as strong as the first single. You can only hope the lyrics were written tongue in cheek.

If this had been released before the advent of downloading, Priest fans would haven all over it. But live material is less interesting now. But at least the Ripper albums are included on it.

Actually, based on the number that got sucked into this vapidness, this thread has been a rip roaring success. <sarcasm turned off>

I wouldn't have gone to M3 just to see them, but Winger is one of the few bands that I would see live because they're so good. I haven't seen them live yet and hope maybe that I can before it's too late.

Exactly the same - the load circle comes up, but it's only takes about 5 sec. for the page to appear. So no problem here.

TNT - it's amazed me how uninterested Ronni Le Tekro and Diseal Dahl seem to be in getting their back catalog reissued. Tony Harnell's been pretty vocal about it, so maybe it's a rights issue with their past label(s). But a box set from them might be one of the few things I'd be interested in.

Slave TT Thrill primarily because I’m a sucker for Doug Aldrich’s contributions. But I like Over the Edge as well.

I've always enjoyed TNT, even the albums that were more off the wall like Firefly and Transistor. I guess other bands that fits into this category was Doug Aldrich's first two bands, Lion and Bad Moon Rising. I was always a little sad that Aldrich and Kai Swan never broke through with those efforts.

An outside producer would be nice, but at this point in their career, it's hard to see the band being willing to give up that creative control. But I'll look to hearing the album, especially as I'm listening through all their studio albums now.

I had some Japanese pressings of albums that are extremely hard to find now, such as the original s/t album by Dokken that eventually became Dysfunctional. I also had the pressing of TNT's Knights of the New Thunder that commanded some serious dollars. But I got rid of those some years back, and I don't regret it. I just don't have the room anymore for physical discs, and I may continue downsi

I think Frehley openly said he declined because Stanley/Simmons didn’t offer enough compensation for his participation. Didn’t hear the part about control. At any rate, this didn’t interest me because there’s been enough written about the band.

Frehley and Criss declined to participated because they wanted more $$$ for it. Criss also refused to allow them to use "Beth", which is not missed IMO.

I just read up on that; that's sad. His music was very good, though it wasn't my personal taste back in the 80's.

If his voice went out, it went out. But the situation sounded weird, and it's unprofessional to just walk off the stage like he did and leave your band out in the cold. Makes you wonder what the stadium tour is going to be like.

I consider the album to be very good, but I wouldn't call it classic or overrated. I wish it could get a proper reissue, but Gillen's actions have effectively prevented that. That's why used copies are hard to come by and go for high prices.

Anytime you choose to post incessantly about politics and opinions about U.S. history on social media, that's what you get. Just look at Richard Marx.
