Aaargh... too hard! Good call on Steve Morse, Terry. Very impressed by his playing. Some more 'mellow' ones that haven't been mentioned but regularly impress me: Robben Ford & Carl Verheyen. On the flashier side: Satch... and Paul Gilbert. I'll stop now cuz I could go on for another hour... Rocket! Sven.

In the aftermath of Brian Howe passing away, I pulled out Dave 'Bucket' Colwell & Friends' "Guitars, Beers & Tears", and wondered why I didn't play that more when I got it... Nothing groundbreaking, just great tunes. Listening to Bucket's Rebel Heart - 20 Good Summers as I write this, which completely slipped under my radar... Still makin' my mind up on that. Rocket! Sven

Damn, I was so hoping the rumour would turn out not to be true, but alas... Think it was just 2 weeks ago that I watched a documentary on BadCo, and the Brian Howe era was only touched upon very briefly ; I think the man himself was shown declaring it was an awkward / uncomfortable situation... Makes me wonder why/how they lasted 7 years, 4 studio albums and a (fantastic) live platter... Thou

Loved "Creep" and "Anyone Can Play Guitar" off Pablo Honey. Rest of the album was shite, though. As were the rest of their albums, actually. Rocket! Sven.

Second that. And Child in Time. Never understood why those 2 are always in the 'Best of Whenever' lists. I cringe every time I hear them. Rocket! Sven.

Must've been the period 85-87, when I was 11-13 yrs old. My parents mainly listened to what was on the radio & TV, my mum especially liked French singers such as Michel Sardou, Joe Dassin & Dave (who was Dutch, really :) ; my dad had a wider range & introduced me to stuff like Dire Straits & Jean-Michel Jarre. I also went to the public library (music section :) with him & c

Hilarious and well done but wearing thin quite fast... Considering the commercial angle, they might consider a name shift into Rhapsody For Hire...? Rocket! Sven.

I'd rank them in the order they were released: Eliminator, then Afterburner, then Recycler. @Hustler: consider me one of those who discovered ZZ during that era, and to me their best album ever is Rhythmeen... but I do appreciate and value the 'early' era as well :) Rocket! Sven.

Steelhouse Lane - If Love Should Go and not really a bonus track, but Beggars & Thieves' "Gypsy" is a monster of a track (unreleased). Both on the MTM Compilation 4, which is a disc full of great tunes really. Rocket! Sven.

First LP: A-Ha - Hunting High & Low (I was 11 or 12 at the time :o) First CD: Roxette - Look Sharp, not too long after it came out, so must've been sometime early '89.. RIP Marie! Thx for the great music. Rocket! Sven.

Geez... Got any harder questions, bro? Saw someone mention Slamer "Jaded" higher up, that would definitely be a contender... as would Circus Maximus "Last Goodbye", Sleeze Beez "The Long Goodbye", Edguy "Theatre of Salvation" and Kharma "Ray of Sunshine". But the winner is: "Angel in the Ashes" by Project Aegis It's a charity trac

I was about to state I'm not a big live records fan, so I don't have many of them, but upon checking, there's more than I thought in my collection: ASIA - Live in Moscow 1990 (CD + DVD) AXXIS - Access All Areas - LIVE BAD COMPANY - The Best Of Bad Company Live BONFIRE - Live...

The good man is turning 50 today. Saw him live last night - apparently he'd woken up with barely any voice & was a bit under the weather, for which he apologised before the show, but honestly: if he hadn't said it, i'd never have known. The consummate performer. (as was his band, by the way :) Didn't know his solo work (only knew some of his Threshold songs, really), but my brother & I

Much as I appreciate some of their previous output, this is appalling... They ARE good musicians & CAN write a decent tune (not this one though), but I suggest they drop the schtick as it's getting stale... Rocket! Sven.

The first 2 that popped into my mind were the Manic Street Preachers' debut "Generation Terrorists" and the follow-up "Gold Against the Soul" - totally different in style, but 2 utterly brilliant albums. The shifts Europe made from s/t & WoT to TFC & OOTW and then to PiP... Sleeze Beez are another - Screwed Blued & Tattooed over Powertool to Insanity Beach -

Agree with some mentioned above (Only the Children & Layla especially). November Rain would be an obvious contender, I'd think, Molly Hatchet has a couple of those as well: Devil's Canyon, Heartless Land & especially The Journey - although for that last song, the 'outro' starts at 3:20 for a song that lasts 7:22, which begs the question: is it an outro if it's more than half the son

Great thread! I guess it all started around 86-87, when I was a solid 12 years old :), with Bon Jovi and especially Europe entering/topping the charts. Europe especially was a key band to me, as I followed from TFC to OOTW & then discovered they had released records before TFC, loved both but especially WoT, and then later of course PiP :) other key releases as I got (a little) older: Al

Story-songs are indeed few & far in-between ; most songs deal with some subject or other, but they rarely tell a story. I sometimes get the impression that the fact that lyrics rhyme is more important than the content, which is usually about falling in love, unanswered love or breaking up. Unless your band is called Steel Panther of course :P The first song that popped in my mind reading th

I second that. It's uncanny how Romero sounds like Steve Lee, with just a little more grit in his voice. Wish they'd do an all original album, though. If I want the old stuff, I take out those first Gotthard cd's :) Rocket! Sven.
