Reminded me of The Dead Daisies actually. I like it, but anyone expecting it to sound anything like Andy did 30 years ago is going to struggle with it...

Arenas was the only option for this tour. Theaters would have been too small. The modern arenas you can move the stage forward and cut the capacity in half, still holds way more than the theater. For the older venues you can curtain off the rear. 6-8k per venue is very doable.

Sammy recently said that he hasn't been asked back to the UK by promoters since Chickenfoot, but someone told me that's probably because the fee that he ask for is higher than would be expected and the promoters are not prepared to pay that for UK shows. I would imagine that it's a similar thing for bands like Poison etc. If they haven't been here for years it's probably because they either don't

I think my main problem with Sea Of Love is that I always want to sing "sowing the seeds of love" the old Tears For Fears song when the chorus kicks in...

Fortess is my least favourite album by them, and I only really got into the first Tremonti album. But most Alter Bridge albums have been growers for me. They are already headlining arenas, so headlining a festival is not out of reach. A band like Alter Bridge doesn't need a radio hit. It's got this far without one. They just need to keep growing the fan base, which by all accounts they are doing

No denying that. Just saying, he's just not the style of guitar player or songwriter that I really like, despite being a huge Leppard fan. As someone else said, Def Leppard are a sum of the parts, not just about one individual.

It's all personal preference. Personally, I'd take Viv over Phil as a guitar player everytime. As a singer too actually - Phil always sounds like he's trying too hard to me. As a song writer it's hard to tell, but I do enjoy the stuff that he's contributed, as generally it sounds a bit different to the generic forumula that Phil has a lot of the time. I love stuff like Work It Out, To Be Alive, G

I enjoyed some of the Tesla album.Some of it was too Def Leppard sounding. There was no need for Phil's backing vocals to be all over it.

I'm talking about the last couple of albums. Stuff Like Sea Of Love, Energized, Man Enough, Hallucinate, etc just make me cringe.

I agree. Phil seems to have taken the reigns in Leppard somewhat and he's something of a one trick pony. And some of his stuff is very cliche. I'd like to see Vivian bring more stuff into the band too..

His recent stuff isn't very good it's true, but he still puts on one of the best live shows you will ever see, in any genre of music.

If you're that interested...from Classic Rock 2002 http://www.daveling.co.uk/doc-thunder.htm#article Such antics were a welcome diversion from the uncertainty of the group’s career, and Thunder’s first line-up change arrived in late ’92 when Snake was sacked after a Japanese tour. Although the rift was later mended, and the bassist briefly played with the David Coverdale-Jimmy Page al

That's old news, which the band have told many times in interviews back in the day...It's no secret. Interesting you chose to highlight that but ignored "As I said, Snake came to some shows, they even held one of the album launch parties at his bar a few years ago." so you're obviously looking for something specific. They were young and silly back then, none moreso that Snake. They'

Actually it wasn't at all. I still don't get why anyone would think that the band should mention a bass player than left 26 years ago in every other interview? As I said, Snake came to some shows, they even held on of the album launch parties at his bar a few years ago. It wasn't an amicable split, but there's no bad blood now. It's a long time ago.

They are hardly ever asked about Snake in interviews, on the rare occasion that they are they talk about him, they don't have a problem with it They are just usually focusing on current activities. He's even been to a couple of shows in recent years. I don't understand why anyone would think the band would bring him up in interviews when not asked. He is pictured and mentioned in the sleeve no

Agreed, he's not done a rock album for sometime, but White Flag from his last album could easily have been on the last Shinedown record. It is a strange booking, but If he plays the right set then he could nail it. COuld be a sign that he is returning to his rock roots?

He played at the Thunder Christmas show last December too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KwmSALqFBxw He does indeed have an album coming out, which also has a Reef connection...apparently he plans on touring it as well, so it definitely looks like he's ready to make a come back of sorts....

Jon's stuck in the style that they have, or going even further away from the Bon Jovi sound, because his voice could not handle a 80s rock style album. The voice he had in the 80s is long gone. And while Shanks is producing you are just going to get more of the same drivel.

The Alter Bridge comparisons are not relevant at all. They were a younger band, with a younger fan base. Go to an Alter Bridge show now and while it's mixed, the majority of the audience are the younger rock fans in their 20s/30s. a band like the Dead Daisies are just not going to appeal to the majority of that audience. It's going to be the older generation of rock fans, of which their simply ar

Yeah, if they went serious noone would care.... I know some people think music integrity is more important than success, but these guys are paying their mortgages, supporting their families and living the high life. They're not about to trade that in to make a really great "serious" record. It's their job at the end of the day... I expect that Crazy Lixx, Reckless Love, and Crashd

Actually, I really enjoyed the last album. No, it's not a rock album, but so what. Having said that "White Flag" could have been on the last Shinedown album. The album he did before that was terrible, but the first 3 will always be his his best.
