If you sift through the replies, Neal says something about this guy being a good musician, plays keyboards, does vocals, etc. I have a feeling that he will be taking over the role that Travis Thibodaux was filling. I listened to some of the guy's covers on YouTube. The one that hits closest to the original was his take on Peter Cetera's vocals on Hard to Say I'm Sorry.

Right now, JBJ is at best the third-best singer in his own band behind Phil X and David Bryan. He looks pretty fucked up in this video. Doesn't look healthy.

I heard part of a song on the radio. Can't remember the name, and wish I could forget everything about it. Ace lost the plot, it seems.

From TOTO's Facebook: Toto has announced that David Paich will not be performing on the band’s planned North American tour. The recent European appearances took a toll on his personal well-being, and it is in his best interests to forego the impact the rigorous wear and tear being on the road brings until he is feeling 100 percent. He plans on focusing on his health, and looks forward to ret

From Chicago's website: As many of you have already heard, our long-time drummer Tris Imboden has resigned. For nearly thirty years Tris has shared his tremendous talent, and indeed his life, with Chicago. We are fortunate to have known him and grateful to have shared the stage with him these many years. He has been a great friend and band mate and we’ll miss his enthusiasm and contagious sm

Mark Rivera has been a member of the Billy Joel band for quite some time. He was a Foreigner side man back in the day as well. He is playing saxophone in the Urgent video, just as he did when he was in Foreigner. Mark also has experience playing with Ringo Starr's All-Starr Band. He plays keyboards, guitar, saxophone, flute, and percussion as well as handling background vocals.

Deen still sang lead on a few songs after Arnel joined, ostensibly to give Arnel a break a few times during the show. Travis fills that same role now, along with second keyboards, which I suppose keeps them from having to use canned background vocals and canned keyboard tracks as much. Playing Escape and Frotniers back-to-back would be tough on anyone's voice. so nothing wrong with giving Arn

Would love to see them bury the hatchet with Don Felder and have him back. In theory, having Randy back would also be awesome, but I don't think the years have been too kind to him. Don't think he would be very effective on stage. Would also be nice to see Bernie Leadon back as well.

Jack Blades has done a lot of writing with Schon & Cain in the past. Jack has four co-writes on Arrival (out of 15 tracks). The three are also listed as co-writers on some tracks from the Over the Edge album by Mickey Thomas (widely believed to be leftovers from the Arrival sessions that were sold off). Good explanation for the Journey influence on the songwriting.

I think Don's voice sounds pretty good in its mid-range. The problem is that he cannot hit the high notes that were a staple of Dokken's best songs. He has to change the melodies of the songs to duck those high notes, so the songs don't sound enough like they were when Don's voice was in full form. He should have kept Mark Boals around to sing the high parts while Don stayed in the mid-range.

I saw them in October of 2014. Ronnie Platt (vocalist + second keyboardist) and David Manion (keyboardist + backing vocalist) were relatively new with the band, but they sounded great. The band was pretty tight. Manion had been the lighting director for Kansas for years and had played with Billy Greer in Seventh Key. Platt was previously with Chicagoland covers band ARRA and had a stint w
