Now a quick caveat. I saw Whitesnake again in the early 2000's soon after Coverdale had reformed the group and they were brilliant, but in 1997 at Shepherd's Bush, London, Coverdale spent a large part of the gig talking and seemed quite self-mocking at that time.. I remember the opener being pretty good but my lasting memory of that gig was utter frustration that Coverdale just wanted to chat

He's certainly a talented guy with great drumming and vocal skills but he does seem to be emotionally up and down like a yo-yo. Hope he's mentally up for the challenge..

Irwin m fletcher Wrote: ------------------------------------------------------- > Sounds like Backstreet Boys with guitars. ----------------- Pretty much this. I think some of the album (notably 2 or 3 songs) is good in its own right but a terrible DL album. Zero rock edge. Lots of polished songs that sound like they were the work of someone else. (Which isn't entirely untrue)

I have to say the new Sweet Oblivion album on first listen is very good. The songs are pretty catchy and there's some decent melodic hooks etc. (Dare I even go as far as 'commercial' sounding at times.. In a good way) Geoff sounds good and the musicianship is very decent too. A surprisingly good release! Only slight negative is the production sounds a touch synthetic like when I heard W

It's interesting reading the RAW article how he said that Jon Bon Jovi wrote songs that all steered towards the cowboy etc and needed Richie to bring the 'Bon Jovi' element into it. History seems to have proved that at least in part true. Ok, the music changed a lot from the end of the 90s but since Richie has gone, the music has definitely taken a very relaxed laid-back vibe..

I think it's fair to say there is always more going on behind the scenes than what we learn from interviews or band statements.. Yes it is bizarre to say the least but not that surprising. We can all speculate till our heads fall off but all I would say is expect the unexpected.. Curious times on planet Queensryche.....Again!!

Arthur_Dent Wrote: > Some postings on here sound like Def Lep was Steve > Clarks solo band :) No but the band's sound and songwriting changed a great deal after Steve's death and a very high proportion of the songwriting whilst he was alive, was attributed to him, so it's fair to say the band is definitely a tale of two halves and I much much preferred the first half.

I hear what you are saying but I think there is a balancing point here. What I mean is, I get it is very difficult for a band to produce albums of the same quality as their peak. (Though I think Bon Jovi isn't a very good example because Jon Bon Jovi really has turned the band into something unrecognisable from even their 90's albums...) Some bands have mixes of some great, some not-so-g

I what I meant by 'nothing' was that in my opinion they haven't released any quality music in the past 20 years.. 22 Years If you include 'Euphoria'.. Now compared to some bands their music would be classed as top-grade but they were literally my favourite band up to the mid 90's. Ok Adrenalize was a definite shift downwards but Retroactive was very good (mostly old songs, but good songs.) L

Strewth, I think there are more copies of this story than Hysteria!! I'm not entirely doubting what Elliott is saying but does it really matter anymore? Perhaps up to the mid-90's when the band was still somewhat 'big' I could see why Elliott would want to keep the tapes buried. But, these days? I think they would actually improve the band's profile and rekindle a little interest into a band

I think if the past few years have taught us anything, with the number of 'classic' rock artists dying, is time and tide wait for no-one. Look at Eddie Van Halen. Possibly one of the greatest rock guitarists ever but we had years and years of his career with us speculating "will they, won't they?" and sporadic social media posts.. We had a little late flurry with David Lee Roth the

It's a NO from me too. The songs are well produced and clearly there are clever A&R people behind the band 'shaping' them to where they want them in the market. But, they wear their contrived Led Zeppelin parallels too vividly. (It's no accident!) And Josh Kiska's vocals have a tone that reminds me of putting a piece of paper over a comb and blowing through it as a kid. (Harsh but he ha

I'm pretty sure I had a 'General Lee' when I was a kid and I enjoyed watching the TV show. Does that mean I need to go and sit on an isolated rock for the rest of my life? Utterly Bonkers!!

I hear you (excuse the pun). I don't like criticising JSS as he seems a very decent guy and as you say he has a great voice. But he needs a great band (with songwriters) to get the best from him. His own material is very forgettable unfortunately.
