I don't feel entitled to anything. No person owes me their autograph on any object. I haven't even been to many autograph signings. But I can call it out for being a lame reason. Unless the item is illegal or morally reprehensible, I think it would be cool if artists would just be grateful for the support of their fans and sign the items that are special to those fans.

It's disappointing to hear that he would act like that. It's a good album. I can understand an artist refusing to sign a bootleg, an album they didn't play on, or if they have legitimate ethical reasons (like if the Scorpions didn't want to sign the original Virgin Killer cover). However, "Ew, I just don't like that album" is a lame reason to me.

It seemed low to me too, compared to some of these deals that have been hundreds of millions. Okay, some of those artists are HUGE, but what about last year's sale of Jeff Porcaro's catalog for $30 million?

Not a new favorite, but I can enjoy it. Did anyone else picture a modern-era Klaus Meine singing it? Something about the vocal delivery or something.

It was part of the remasters back in the 90s. It was the last one, actually.

Most die-hard KISS fans hate it, but it does a lot better with casual KISS fans and lovers of 80s rock.

Reason To Live was Paul Stanley and Desmond Child. Paul and Michael Bolton wrote Forever on the next album, Hot In The Shade. I love both, but I give the nod to Forever.

It has been my single favorite album for about 25 years. I fell in love with it in middle school and you can never really replace that feeling. I even love the production. I think that Nevison's tight, crisp sound (on this album plus others) is underrated. I wouldn't want every album to sound that way, but I also wouldn't want Vital Signs to sound like Slave To The Grind.

Nice mention of "Cool Night" by Paul Davis. Great song. It seems to be one that I often play 2-3 times in a row when I hear it. It somehow brings back a vibe for me even though I wasn't alive when it came out and I don't recall it playing during any major life moments.

I put at least a couple of their albums above it, but it's near the top for sure, and Gemini Dream might be my favorite song by them.

He isn't "Steve Perry-ish" enough if they wanted the "Look how close this guy gets!" route and he isn't distinctive or special enough if they wanted the "Look, this guy stands out without being a clone!" route.

I'm the one guy whose favorite H.e.a.t album is Freedom Rock, so I was kind of hoping that this would be the continuation of that since Kenny is back. I still have to give this new one a full listen, but I like what I'm hearing so far.

It's okay. Maybe it's even good. But it just doesn't excite me. It didn't live up to what Van Halen or Sammy Hagar were capable of separately, let alone the kind of masterpiece that they should have been able to create together.

I love Quiet Riot. These albums are good, not great. I've wanted official versions for many, many years. They're in the style of 70s glam rock (Slade, Sweet, etc.) and not really similar to 80s Quiet Riot. However, Quiet Riot II does have the original Slick Black Cadillac. These albums won't be for everyone, but I'm very happy that they're happening.

KISS is my favorite band, but I'm an outsider who thinks that Revenge is overrated. I like it, but not nearly as much as I love their 80s albums (Music From "The Elder" aside).

I hate to hear that. He had some great co-writes with David Lee Roth and I got to see him live with Fleetwood Mac.

It's funny that you say that about the cover, because for me it was an instant, "Nice! This looks like fun rock!" I like that it's a drawing. I like that it's in the style of when bands had iconic logos. I've been way too tired of all of the Photoshopped album covers of angel wings, soaring birds, solar eclipses, etc. that have been overused in the past 15 years or so.

I agree that image was something that caught my eye when I was first discovering all of these great bands. I definitely checked out some bands over others based on their look. I still prefer a cool look over a boring one. However, all of my top tier bands made it among my favorites with music over image.

I'm curious how people determine their favorite artists, especially because I've realized that people do it very differently. Ultimately, we just like what we like, but I'm sure that most of us have some sort of criteria that we loosely have going around in our heads. For me, it almost entirely comes down to recorded music. How many albums has the artist made and how good are they? There's def

Here are ten from each decade that I really, really like. I'm sure that I would end up changing one or two from each decade. Also, these aren't in any particular order. 70s: KISS - Rock And Roll Over KISS - Dressed To Kill Van Halen - Van Halen Cheap Trick - Dream Police AC/DC - Highway To Hell REO Speedwagon - Nine Lives Deep Purple - Machine Head Queen - Jazz Aerosmith - Dra

It's a good album for sure. Around that time, the 80s rock public seemed to be moving away from bands like Loverboy, Survivor, and Journey* in favor of newer, younger, handsomer/glammier, slightly edgier bands like Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Poison, Cinderella, etc. *Yes, I know that Raised On Radio still did quite well, but not nearly as well as the two albums before it and none of those songs be

I love The Darkness but don't hear any comparisons, unless we're speaking very loosely in terms of young/young-ish guys with long hair playing fun rock music in the 21st century.

Fun energy for sure. Vince Neil might be my least favorite part of the song, even though I like him. I just feel like his voice, which is noticeably different than the band's singer, is more of a distraction than an addition. I really dig the guitar solo. I look forward to hearing what a full album is like.
