This is worth a read.. It does offer a little context to the Wilson sisters and their disdain of the three big Capitol records albums. https://www.popmatters.com/195860-all-hail-hair-metal-heart-2495502666.html

It's good that tastes vary.. I'm not saying there's a right or wrong here (other than the absence of 'hits' in the live sets). Even their music that I don't like is mostly very good creatively. It's interesting to hear where other people's tastes are..

Heart is certainly one band despite them changing style at least twice. There are a few similarities to Whitesnake with it first being mostly a band effort then the singer took control. With Heart there just happened to be two sisters intead. I think the difference is that he heart of Heart (excuse the pun) is somewhere around the dawn of the 80's, pre-self-titled to Brigade and they've retu

I like 'Brigade', particularly the cover of Romeo's Daughter's 'Wild Child' but that said I like 50-60% of the self-titled and Bad Animals. Bebe Le Strange shows their liking of Led Zeppelin and co. Creatively good but it's not something I feel compelled to listen to too often..

Howdy.. I've been taking quite an interest in Heart recently and their back-catalogue of music and I think even today, Ann and Nancy have amazing voices. Now, here's the tricky bit. I know the 80s were difficult particularly for Ann with people slamming her image (particularly her weight) and their regret of using outside songwriters during that period. But, I prefer their 80's tracks to a

Bon Jovi really were at the top of their game back then. A few degrees towards pop but credit where credit is due, If I had a time machine, I'd go and see them again in the late 80's, early 90', in a heartbeat..

I've historically been a Hughes fan but if I'm honest, his delivery is soooo strikingly 'Hughes', regardless of whether it's a solo release or with another band, it just sounds like another Hughes release and dare I say I may be a touch bored of it... (Yikes!) I like Schenker, perhaps because he doesn't seem quite so prolific in his output, so when his name appears I'm curious to what he's goi

Thanks for your inputs. I read your previous post. It certainly sounds like a combination of Vai contracts and Olsen's willingness to change musicians (away from the 'conventional' line-up) to suit the recording, would be a good indicator why Slip Of The Tongue sounded like a morphing of a Whitesnake album and a Vai solo album.

Yeah I've noticed the rhythm parts on Vai albums are usually very thin and low-key (excuse the pun). Vai is a quintessential lead (only) player to my ears.
