Not surprising for many, I'd say. Take some of the twang out of today's country and you are very close to what pop and rock once were. Obviously not identical, but much closer to mainstream pop/rock than it used to be. It started going that way, IMO, in the 90's.

Has some of the bigger guitar sound that was on some Face the Heat tracks, like Alien Nation.

I think a couple things come to mind when discussing this topic. First, I've always thought that most of us discovered these bands and music during impressionable periods in our lives, primarily when we were younger and developing our interest in music and other things. This also happened to be the "heyday" for most of these bands. So, we have a much more profound connection to their

Yes, you are correct on that tour... It was called something like a "An Evening of or with Journey" and it spanned almost their entire body of work. Augeri even played some rhythm guitar to stay on stage when he was taking a break. Weird times, the machine had to keep going, nobody will ever know everything.

I agree overall... That said, I think Flesh and Blood was DC's attempt make a more anthematic-type album in the vein of '87 & SOTT. Not trying to duplicate it, but intentional aim to recapture that type of style in the present.

Agreed... I think they can get the product out to more countries/people.. Instead of the band/artist trying to pitch it to various companies to put out in different territories.

Not sure this should really be surprising. I mean, the meat and potatoes of his audience these days are either diehards who will support him regardless or in more cases than not, middle-aged housewives who still have a crush on him and will eat this stuff up...no pun intended. His marketing guys are trying to market him (the brand) into anything they can ala-KISS.

Guessing nobody wanted to pick them up and they didn't want to spend the $ to produce it independently. Kee was also doing some stuff with Easy Action a few years back. He may have thought if that continued, it would be rolling with something that was established, at least in Sweden and the European countries. I was hoping something would come of it.

My only thought is that maybe the way DC re-sequenced them on the anniversary releases was the running order he wanted in the first place, but when released back in the day, they were changed, so he figured he now had the chance to change it to what he'd wanted in the first place... who knows.

Not a bad overview. Pretty high level, without many details, but good nonetheless.

I'm a middle of the road take/leave MC w/the exception of a few songs guy. I don't know if anyone remembers that show a bunch of years back when they were trying to get Vince's solo career back on track and they brought Desmond Child in to help him with writing & vocals on some song, and a trainer to try and get Vince back in shape... Vince was extremely stubborn and rarely looked like he wa

I get what you're saying... it's a couple hour drive for me, but I never go. I'm sure Covid impacted some protentional additions, but generally speaking, it's close to the same cast of characters every year, and if you're kind of "meh" to them, you aren't inspired to go. I think the last time they had someone headline a night that was different from the norm was a number of years back

You're right... I guess I should have been clearer... Richie wrapped a lot of that up into his desire to spend more time with his daughter, but he wasn't/isn't out there bashing JBJ or telling the world how much of an a-hole he is. But absolutely... JBJ & RS are better together than apart, but they definitely butt heads. Back in the day, they were perceived more as a band, but in recent yea

Like others said... $ keeps is mouth shut. They all have said for years that they aren't the band to air most dirty laundry publicly. Even Richie keeps his mount shut about leaving. He's only made a couple comments more recently when Jon won't shut up about Richie's "problems" during interviews, looking for the "I'm the best boss ever" award and sympathy from the his middle

Good track. I thought there were some gems on this album, although it didn't get much attention by fans or the band live, if I remember correctly.

I haven't read all the replies yet, but I think it depends on the effort and desire of the band. Many of the current re-records are bands trying to get rights back to license material or just releasing some updated greatest hits package. By the time they are doing this, they've played most if not all the redone tracks a million times over the years. There's no urgency, angst, or that feeling o

For me, Native Tongue is to Poison what Dog Eat Dog was to Warrant... The music scene was changing, and they were trying to progress and mature with it. Certainly without CC they were a different band, and Kotzen definitely influenced the increased "bluesiness." That said, seems in retrospect a decent follow up to F&B where their content started to mature. I enjoyed Crack a Smile

They gave that song to Bo Bice and he does a good version of it. Not a Bo Bice fan, but it's basically the same track, just titled "Nothing Without You." Ritchie plays and I believe does some backing vocals on Bo's version.

Doesn't do anything for me, and I agree with a couple of the other comments. Getting a bit of MS overload these days. I know they need to do what they need to, and constantly working is his thing, but I'm worn out of MS.

I always thought it was great, and nothing Jon has tired to do on his own has ever come close to this. It seems the cowboy theme that started with "Wanted" and showed up again on some NJ tracks, was a natural progression for Jon at the time.

Exactly... It's about making the $ and the branding, and JBJ solo doesn't sell what BJ does. But, if you look thru any comments, it's nothing but a bunch of middle aged woman fawning over anything that comes out of his mouth. He's pandering to that portion or the fanbase, and maybe the only remaining part of the fanbase.

I think most everyone summed it up pretty much. I'd just say that to me it's also Jon's obsessive desire to be the next Springsteen, Dylan-type guy, and that's in no way aligned with the younger version of the band that made them a household name. They have turned into nothing more than the Jon Bon Jovi solo band, but using the Bon Jovi brand as the marketing tool to keep the album sales going

Exactly the point I was going to make, but Andrew made it first... Earlier on, regardless to who made the decisions, the perception was that Bon Jovi was a band of 5 guys. Over the last however many years, with JBJ taking the management in-house, it's really just about Jon Bon Jovi, and using the Bon Jovi brand for marketing purposes. Tico and David stick around for the perks and nice paydays,

Supposedly he's finishing up a full length release... He did some interview on a streaming show Kiki.fm or something like that last week. He mentions having 10 songs, some cowritten with his touring guitarist and keyboard player, a few of his own, and then 1 he wrote w/Schon and 1 he wrote w/Cain that never made a J album.

I agree, but I also think for the band it was added as a favor, maybe for Beau Hill... Fiona wrote the lyrics, the band had the music credit... The only track from the album they never played live in any incarnation. I'd assume there's a reason why.

None of the LeBaron Boys material was close to H2H... LBB demos were good, and likely would have been a little bit more polished should they have been on the album. That said, nothing the record execs thought was a radio friendly hit, hence some of the other tracks that made the album w/outside writers.
