I agree with getting rid of all the statues because you can still learn from the past without having those symbols present (we still remember the dangers of Fascism and Nazism without having statues of Adolf Hitler around), but a lot of what's going on is similar to 'greenwashing'. Corporations trying to put a PR spin on their products to persuade the public their product is ethically 'better'.

Yes, I've got the 'book' version too, with the 'Making of' DVD also included. It's a strange one - it didn't click with me like the previous album, 'Aura' did (which was a lot more atmospheric), and there were only a couple of standout tracks for me personally (like 'Ghost in the Mirror')

I didn't think I'd like that because I love the original. In fact, all of Moroder's 80's soundtracks are great - I love Richie Zito's guitar tone on them. Maybe this version should have used elements of the original, and "The Neverending Story 2" theme, which is a tad faster, and includes the solo at the beginning? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9VeRduRP1M

Same here, except I also know "Just As I Am", which I like, as well as "All Out Of Love". That's a great lineup with those 90's albums - I'll check those out.

Yikes! I wonder if Journey are going to have her doing this routine during "Don't Stop Believing"? https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=123&v=xtNuXKoLOW4&feature=emb_logo A bit like that strange dancing bloke, Jed, that appeared on 'Top of the Pops' in the 80's with Howard Jones.....

Great post JMac! It is hard, but I think it is possible to move from generational norms. Often it comes about when something better comes along that replaces the status quo. Using a technology example, this happened to a startling effect when digital cameras replaced film. The same will happen with internal combustion cars in the next 20 years with electric, just as sure as those photo's of

He's a sociopath, a narcissist and a bully, with a thin skin (what a combo!)....but, it's his policies towards the wider world (I'm not in the US) that concerns me most. As someone who works in the science/ environment sector, and concerned about how we'll get to 'net zero' carbon emissions in the next few years, it's vital that we get everyone on board now to agree to a roadmap, otherwise the

I do like that! I see they have (or had) dates booked in Germany and Austria this year - it'd be nice to see them play the UK sometime too.

Our department is doing a trial work from home day tomorrow (everyone) to test resilience. Didn't really want to come in today (there's people COUGHING here!!!), but plan to work from home as much as possible from now on. I feel sorry for those that don't have that option, and those that are going to have a tough time economically in the months to come. I'm feeling nervous about my parents

About 1974 I asked my Mum & Dad for the single "Tiger Feet" by Mud, and then soon after I ended up with a copy of "Sladest" by Slade (can't remember if that was a double album?) Anyway, I was 7 at the time, and my Dad had a varied record collection (Status Quo, Queen, and ....Mantovani and Perry Como!) Fast forward a few years, and I was really into instrumental electro

From what I've read, I'm not too worried about getting it myself (well, scratch that - I am!), it's the likelihood of passing it on to my parents or elderly relatives, or anyone with underlying pulmonary/ respiratory illnesses. The fatality rate is a magnitude greater than flu (or higher) for this section of society. It's NOT the flu - we have some level of immunity to rhinovirus. Covid-19 we

I've been to all the HRH AOR's over the years, but they don't hold a candle to the Firefests and Rockinghams of this world. For one thing, hardly any of the bands are AOR. I use it as an excuse to meet up with my gig going friends!

Both Richard and Bon Jovi need to change their names, because nothing they release now sounds anything like the music they became know for.

Same here Dave - and I like a lot of prog too. I think you're right, it's a lot to do with Geddy Lee's voice. If the vocals don't work for me, I can't get past it (and that goes for the vocals in a lot of neo-prog bands as well).

I've just finished the Mike Oldfield one, "Changeling", which was fascinating. He seems to have led two lives - one where, because of his childhood, and a bad LSD trip, he was an insular neurotic up to the Exegesis seminar he went to in 1978. And for years afterwards, he over-compensated, and became a hyper-extrovert. It could do with a new edition though, as it came out in 2008, and
