I remember Robert Plant calling Coverdale 'David Coverversion'. He obviously had more respect for Paul Rodgers. Far as me, I liked both. I posted some months back that I was sorry Page never remastered either of the Firm albums. Satisfaction Guaranteed is still a slow burn of awesome.

I feel Innuendo is the real Queen send off to the world instead of the cut and paste feel of Made In Heaven.

The Outfield deserved so much more notoriety than they got. Still irks me that Tony got little to no mention news wise for his passing. I mean...i understand it since EVH had just passed and the world was reeling from that but Tony deserved more. John deserved more. The Outfield deserved more. I still remember being 16 and went into a record store asking for Play Deep after seeing the Say It I

I truly hoper Vai, Sheehan & Bissonette come out at least once and send DLR off like he deserves to be. Maybe even have Mike Anthony come out for a few songs on the last night. Poor Dave. Ed's death has hit him hard. Probably more than he'd admit. Years of love, years of hate, years of together to make money...in the end they were truly family.

Makes me thankful that ABWH came along for Maestro Howe. Also, here's a song Max sang for Mike Oldfield - Magic Touch https://youtu.be/VrEuy09ZcUU Here's I guess is from the ashes of GTR the band Rain with Max Bacon, Geoff Downes, Phil Spalding, Scott Gorham & Michael Sturgis. Looks like it's the song that Downes would use on Asia - Aqua. https://youtu.be/Znu8wUwVanM

Howe and Hackett in the end couldn't get along (I understand they even had hotel rooms on different floors while touring). While it was a fun idea I think Steve Howe (who is the guy who made me start wanting to play guitar) does not play well with others. This part you probably know but after Hackett left they tried to salvage GTR by bringing in Robert Berry and then Max Bacon wasn't happy som

I'm subbed to Lee Aaron's Youtube channel and this little chestnut was uploaded for a band called Vigilants. Lee even makes a cameo as the secretary (which presumably is the reason for the uploading). Just a fun slice of 1980's Canadian rock. Seems they had one album also called Run For Cover in 1985. https://youtu.be/cdsIkSlYj3Y

Ah yes. MTV got tired of being a 24 hour a day showing only music videos channel at some point and started doing shows...about music videos. OK, not a stretch but they started the Basement Tapes where unsigned bands would make videos and viewers would vote to see who wins and get a major record label deal. I only recall 3 winners whom I'll link to plus some bonus wacky stuff including one with a

It's an ok cd. I like Top Of The Rock, Missing You and the Whiter Shade Of Pale cover. Still kind of a shame Planet Us never really materialized. Sammy & Neal Schon probably would have done something by now if they were going to try again.

AIC were also a glam metal band before changing to cash in on record companies screaming 'SEATTTTTTLE!' at the top of their lungs. Not saying AIC weren't great but they were what they were first.

Record companies had a hand in trying to kill hair metal and the like. They had the golden goose by the throat and squeezing the life out of it. Think happy thoughts because the music we love is still here and grunge got left inside an old port-a-john steaming like it deserves. I never bought a grunge cd. I recall having Pearl Jam's 'Ten' in my hands but I left it in the bin. Luckily, I dis

Loved side 1 especially All The King's Horses / Headed For Nowhere because it has the equally talented Steve Morse trading off with Rik Emmett. Rik never got to return the favor on a Morse solo album, sadly, but his inspiration to start playing guitar Steve Howe of Yes (mine as well) did play on the Steve Morse led Dixie Dregs album Industry Standard (also with a rare Dregs vocal song Crank I

So here's the guy that was supposed to replace Cronin named Michael Jahnz. https://youtu.be/7msgFkxR36U Sounds like Cronin but he sings in a lower register. Well, guess Cronin ended up with a touch of the ol' LSD (Lead singer disease).

With the anniversary of Gary Richrath's passing coming up I tried to find why he actually left REO Speedwagon in 1989 after the release of The Hits. The odd thing is one story points to him being forced out by Kevin Cronin. Allegedly Cronin left the band (though unannounced) and when whatever he tried behind the scenes failed to be successful he wanted to come back to REO but said he could no

I'd hope it happens but the Tommy/JY side probably concerned Dennis would try to take things over like they accused him of before Dennis left.

https://youtu.be/wXngbzatfIE The story of Triumph which was shown on MuchMusic back in the day. It's the less rosy view of the band while there was still tension between Rik and the other side of Gil & Mike. When it came to songwriting credits Triumph were definitely not equal to Rush. Whereas Lee, Lifeson & Peart were equals far as the creative side, Rik did most of the writing

Girls With Guns is the best solo effort by anyone in Styx so Tommy wins. I remember having to buy cd versions of Girls With Guns & What If directly from Waterdog Records. Conversely, my friend loved Desert Moon but that didn't see a cd re-release for quite a while. Walked into a Tower Records and I thought walking by the D section I should check and yelled out 'HOLY CRAP, MAN, THEY GOT YOU
