I didn't have much sympathy for Maradona (the tabloids pretty much added 'Hand of God' as a middle name when referring to him) until I watched the 2019 documentary. He went from a shy poor street kid who lived for football to a tragic caricature. The worst thing he could have done for his personal life was move to Naples - the mafia certainly ensnared him there. RIP.

I think the US will always be divided now. The seed of that started with Reagan getting rid of the Fairness Doctrine in 1987. That gave rise to hate radio, seeping into the rural areas where radio is a prevailing companion on long empty roads.I drove across the US on holiday a few years ago, and it's appalling what's on local radio over there. Try to get a weather report/traffic report and get

Really looking forward to this. He seems to have completely done a 180 from the synthwave stuff though - I think I'd like more of a mixture.

I like both his AOR "Palace" releases and his synthwave "Holoflash" alter ego. Talented bloke.

Well done Andrew - not logging on to my work PC every morning and immediately heading to melodicrock.com (as I've been doing since the 90's) would be unthinkable!

It's really sad that Tony has left us just a few years after John, and so unexpectedly too. It always seemed one of music's great injustices that they couldn't find any success here in the UK when they were so popular elsewhere :-(

Yes, you have to pick and choose between Synthwave acts - LeBrock, Magic Dance, Meteor, FM-84/ Ollie Wride definitely sound more AOR/80's than a lot of stuff out there. So called Synthwave acts like Isidor just sound like EDM to me. I also think the vocalist for The Midnight sounds too 'modern' for my tastes. Listening to Magic Dance's latest output, it seems they've moved away from Synthwave

I think the only current British comedy that harks back to the old type of humour is 'Not Going Out'.

The first album recorded directly to hard disc as I remember? Great album, but I remember in an interview with Yes Music Circle fanzine (remember those?) that Trevor Rabin said that he thought that AOR in the industry was done, which didn't bode well. If he could see the writing on the wall, it probably explains why he bailed after the Talk tour, and went on to Hollywood soundtracks. That,

Nice telescope RNR! I used to have a Meade LX10 - great telescope, but I didn't use it enough. Too big and heavy, so I decided to get something more portable and user-friendly, which I think would also suit MMF's son. I ended up with a Sky Watcher 127 Maksutov-Cassegrain. They're great for lunar/ planetary observations (long f12 focal length), but not as long and cumbersome as a refractor (the

Fast AND mid paced within the same song would seem to be a good compromise....

I guess it's a risk for the record company to forward the advance. For instance - Zodiac Mindwarp blowing his advance on comic books. Luckily, the album was a hit :-)

As far as my eyes can see There are Shadows approaching me And to those I left behind I wanted you to Know You've always shared my deepest thoughts You follow where I go And oh when I'm old and wise Bitter words mean little to me Autumn Winds will blow right through me And someday in the mist of time When they asked me if I knew you I'd smile and say you were a friend of mine And th

It's the effort that Andrew puts into the releases that shows he does it for the love of the music. And yes, that Don Barnes CD...wow!

Regarding Arena, am I the only one who preferred the first couple of albums, "Songs from the Lion's Cage" and "Pride"? As much as I admire John Mitchell, I think the music took a different, darker turn after he replaced Keith More.

That's right Dave, he's also done 'Back to the Future' (with Biff turning up in a separate video), 'The Goonies', 'Lord of the Rings', 'Splash', and 'Ghostbusters'. 'The Breakfast Club' would have been nice, and 'Karate Kid' (although we don't need a reunion for that, now we have 'Cobra Kai')

It's not music related, but I came across this lockdown Zoom reunion with the cast of Ferris Bueller's Day Off that put a smile on my face (obviously no Ed Rooney because, well, you know....) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOaa3Znh75w The only downside is that I felt old after watching it - you now realise it was released over 30 years ago :-(
