I think if they want to, they can. I don't think the idea of doing an 80's style album has been their mindset previously, so they haven't done it. Not that they would, but they could tweak half of the LeBaron Boys demos and have a decent half album right there. Some of the newer tracks like Forever Traveling, Hero, New Love in Town, and a few others are decent examples of songs that are much c

Might be annoying, but hardly the first time an artist ripped themselves off.

He may be contractually obligated to do this because it has been pushed off with the delays with the Stadium tour in the US. I'd bet his take home is still pretty nice being the ring-leader of this thing. And...that's also assuming that Poison would have been part of the Stadium Tour in Europe. I haven't seen anything (or may be forgetting) where the same package from the US tour was what was

Yes - In a nutshell.. as others have said he supposedly wasn't happy with the more "pop" direction the band was going. He also had some serious issues with the manager at the time, and I think that had something to do with it too. And I agree that Total Control and even Face the Truth for that matter were not very far off the Europe blueprint or where the band went after TFC, with OOT

For me personally, this has always been the 3rd album to the BJ trifecta. SWW, NJ, & KTF was where I just loved the band. I've enjoyed some tracks from every album afterwards, but there's a lot of filler post-KTF, and the more recent albums all seem like JBJ solo albums sold under the BJ moniker to capitalize monetarily. Regardless, still one of my favorite bands...

Schon's all over his social media trying to play victim. He posted some video of Cain playing DSB at some political event he and his wife attended.. If this isn't the end or at least Cain saying FU I'm out, I don't know what will do it.

While various other pages have linked the same news story, there doesn't seem to be any indication that Cain's out. Because of the business partnership between them, I'm sure even if that's a option, it would take a long time, and a lot of attorney fees to hash things out.

Thanks for sharing. I know times were different without as much attention to live stuff, but surprised there isn't more out there from them during the Kee years. It was definitely the pinnacle of their career, from the late Final Countdown timeframe thru PIP.

Mixed bag with a lot diversity in tracks. There are a few decent tracks, but no matter what he does, I don't think he'll come close to topping Face the Truth. Not into the FTT redo, doesn't work for me.

I'll add the new Europe album rumored for 2023. There has been increased chatter in some recent interviews that they are interested in doing an album more in line with their original sound, specifically the Wings of Tomorrow and TFC area, per John Norum.

BJ is one of those bands, right? In most cases if they aren't putting out the 80's sound, most don't have time for it, because that's the BJ sound they want which is fine, but there has to be acceptance that we're not going to get another album like those first 4. The reality is that there are "some" good tracks on those albums. But overall, there is more filler than on their earlier

I also thought Richie was saying it was being shopped to the "big" labels. Obviously either they haven't been interested for whatever reason, or there's some other issue, but it's sure taking forever for it to see the light of day.

Of course this is all speculation that there will even be a BJ w/RS in the future, and just my opinion, but I wouldn't put it past them to do some type of release, even if it's just another greatest hits album w/2 or 3 new tracks type of thing, just to put the final stamp on BJ musically. Lots of studio trickery can be done to make JBJ passable and I'm sure they could kick out a couple songs wit

I could see something like this in the next couple years. 2024 would be 40 years since the first album. Maybe one last farewell album/EP with Richie, do the Reunion/Retirement World Tour to cash in thing, and then put BJ out to pasture. JBJ may not be able to sing well any longer, but it wasn't like the arenas were empty for those shows early in 2022... Richie's presence might be enough to give

I think you hit the nail on the head... Overall it was very mellow compared to other BJ albums. Songwriting was there, but I think fans still had an expectation of what Bon Jovi "should" or "could" sound like and the These Days album wasn't it. "Hey God" was the only real rocker I can recall off the top of my head. However, "Something to Believe In" is a

I enjoyed this album and felt it was one of the last big hair-band era records to come out. I still like the majority of it today. Like many others, I feel like they fell off after this record. I didn't/don't like These Days, save for a couple songs, and then Bounce and Have a Nice Day have some high spots, but everything else has been patchy at best since them.

I would have guessed that Last In Line would have been his #1, so he'd have asked those guys about GW. With DL constantly touring he probably thought he could do the GW thing. He may also be lined up again to sing at the Raiding the Rock Vault show in Vegas which probably pays more and is consistent. That said, I met most of the musicians after the show a few years ago at the Raiding the Roc

You probably saw the poster that Nestor posted for a show in Norway w/Motley, Def Lep, Alter Bridge, Europe, The Dogs, Nestor, and DAD on June 11.

I don't think anyone's arguing that VH is no more. SH talks about VH because he constantly gets asked about it, the interviewer even made the notation that they (Rolling Stone) were bringing up the inevitable, and asked him about VH and his time, thoughts, etc. And so he talks about it and answers their questions. What's he going to say, no comment?

Not sure where you get that the Scorpions aren't playing anything off the new album. Typically, they are playing 4-5 new tracks each night, and that's a lot more than say Def Leppard that might squeeze in 2-3. Depends on the band. If it's a band I really like, and I like their newer stuff too, I want to hear a wide range. If it's a band I like, but more of a casual fan, then I'd rather hear

Liked Stryper for a long time. Can't say this one, or their quest to be much heavier overall is doing anything for me.

He seems to have lightened his stance a bit with IGWT, he now just says it was way over produced, but most of the songs are good. I always liked ATL... The message was less in your face, but it was there, in a more read between the lines type format. But, it was the end of that era of music being big, there were band issues, and a lot of personal issues, so I get why he doesn't like it... It's

Great track right there. Surprised during the production nobody caught that they transposed the "E" and the "I" in "Their" at the 3:19 mark. Oops!

Maybe 2, but you know the second song will do doubt be another version of "I want to Know What Love is," the fully Orchestral, recorded on a Sunday night, w/ukuleles and tribal drums mix.

They don't want to strain themselves working too hard. It's probably a new track to be added to the 172nd greatest hits package they will no doubt be released around the holidays. :)
