I'm sure he would have had any of these projects actually taken off. The same goes for Mandy, he made a career of playing second fiddle in all bands after this and Katmandu. At least some of those songs ended up in Gotthard, although I prefer Jimi's and Steve's vocals in Looking At Me.

Dreadful, to be honest. His singing and playing are devoid of any hooks and melodies.

It seems with Schon managing the band things aren't really working either. The trademark issues were really strange as well. Funny how some bands just never get the business side straight. Then you have bands like Metallica where business matters were always in order even during the dysfunctional years.

Great interview, such a talent and seems to be a really nice and laid-back guy. Touches on a lot of stuff, Winger, Alice Cooper, Steve Perry, and he also worked with Mick Mars on his solo album, sounds like it's going to be an amazing and heavy record! Paul Taylor

I think they have always been melodic, that's what pulled me in even if the vocals were an acquired taste. You make some valid points that most bands stick to a certain formula, but even within those boundaries you can come up with something a bit new or different. Also, it's easier to listen to Lou Gramm or Steve Perry over and over again than David Draiman ;-)

Yep. Was a big fan, but now it's just copy-paste and I really had to force myself to listen to the whole thing. A bit like the new Nickelback.

Yes, I'm really digging Mick's voice as well. This is a solid album without the usual cheese that goes along with most new AOR releases. Nice organic sonics.

Same here, I love 80s Queen, but this is a substandard album.

"Spies Of Life" I like very much. Their earlier stuff not so much. Lukather and I believe some other Toto guys are on this.

I find this rather *meh*... It feels like I've heard better versions of just about every song on previous albums. Then there's the title track, a bit in the vein of Rock Star, just more country, which I think will do very well for them, but I'm not digging it at all. Feed The Machine was much, much better!

I wouldn't watch that for free. I'd rather go to a Carl Palmer drum clinic.

You said Hilary Clinton should be in jail. If that's the measure, Trump should get life without parole.

Having official emails on a server at home and staging an insurrection where police officers get killed by a bunch of militia inbreds is not quite the same thing.

Actually, one could argue he lost the senate twice. They pretty much had a lock on both the house and the senate in this midterm until the Trumpster started meddling again by backing the wrong candidates. They most likely will win the house but with a slim majority. And quite a few of those will feel the pressure from their constituency to vote against Trump-backed bills.

He's the gift that keeps on giving for the Dems. As mentioned, it's a final cash grab and his base will be more than happy to finance his retirement, and he needs to run away from the law. He even started to raise cash for Hershel Walker's campaign, although when you read the fine it says that Trump pockets 90% of that money. Don the Mafiosi never quits ;-)

I don't see him doing anything less than on Foreigner's level - if anything at all. What are his options in terms of bands? In the PR release he states that one can only perform on this level for so long. He seems a smart guy and probably has saved up enough money to retire. And I wouldn't be surprised if he gets into some celebrity chef thing as he loves to cook and has been on a few shows.

Yep, same for me. Although I love just pretty much everything he did. One of the most consistent artists of his generation for sure.

College football & basketball are closer to the European fan culture and tradition. Pro sports, with a few exceptions like the Yankees and the Cowboys, don't really have that fan culture. People in NFL cities might support their team (or whoever just happens to play there), but they have not been lifelong fans. The most ridiculous example are the Raiders, I lost count of the times they moved

People attend these games because they're a spectacle, a great show. But the sport per se doesn't really exist in Europe, at least not professionally. That European league they had some years back failed miserably. Basketball is a lot more popular.

Read up on her, she's quite the talent, she danced in Dirty Dancing, Flashdance, and Staying Alive. Great singer too! I guess she retired from the business.

Their first is pure synth pop, more early 80s sounding but great! Their third s/t from '89 reminds me a bit of the Starship albums, a nice mix of pop and rock.

Kyrie is done well and very close to the original, but you just can't improve on Richard Page's vocals. Period. Sister Christian doesn't work for me at all. Completely misses the emotions of the original.

Dug out their second album Strange Behavior (1986) and forgot how good this is, it has a bit more bite than their popular debut and reminds me of a few other bands like Device. Ouf Of Control The third s/t from 1989 is great as well with this cracker: Room To Move Wasn't Cynthia Rhodes Richard Marx's wife at some point?

Statistically, at least in the US, there has been an uptick in violence since the 2016 election (surprise, surprise), but it's still lower than in the 70s and early 80s. Ever since the pandemic, it's quite obvious that people are a lot more short-tempered, anxiety and other mental health-related issues are WAY up, add to that a society that is extremely polarized, hate speech online by many s

I'd rather have some cool live stuff, especially from the early days, the only live release they have with Dave is that horrid Tokyo show. I could also do with another great Van Hagar live release, either from the 5151 tour or there's some great stuff on youtube from the Balance tour.

Not really high-quality songs and I can't stand those chanting choruses. Sounds a bit like Rainbow meets Rammstein. Not a good mix.

Yeah, I think so too. Definitely not a new album with Richie. That ship (and Jon's voice) has sailed. A few more festival appearances and then perhaps a farewell gig in NY/Jersey.
