Not even close to being better than the original. They're all so busy over playing (especially Virgil) that they stomped all over the essence of the song. Dino has some voice though...

It was first recorded by a Danish singer, but the song was written by the singer and guitarist of Ednaswap. They recorded it for their debut. All three of Ednaswap's albums are really good, as is their 'Chicken' EP, which was released between their first and second albums (different labels). The EP featured a shorter version of 'Torn' as did their second album 'Wacko Magneto'.

Mats Leven's version of Queen of the Reich has always impressed me. The guy is an unbelievable talent, super nice guy too. Opeth/Talisman's Fredrik Akesson on guitar too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XABuwUGacM8

Coverdale got a taste of his own medicine with Slade's 'Lock Up Your Daughters' which is basically 'Fool for your Loving'. Whitesnake - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PWJFjgcAhjQ Slade - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6-TnTFH2NY Although Noddy always said he can't hear any similarities...

'Crying Over You' is Platinum Blonde and 'Lonely at Night' is an Orphan track.

The whole thing. It's very good. Standouts for me being 'And Then Goodbye', 'Lonely People', 'Need to Believe'... but it's great to hear Steve's voice on something 'new'. Such a talent.

Definitely not the Rainbow song. This track does have more than a hint of The Beatles 'Norwegian Wood' about it however...

He was fantastic to work with, wicked sense of humour and a brilliant player. Lots of great memories from those recent tours with him.

Bernie Torme. I've been Bernie's drummer for the past few years, but I've known him since the '80's. Lovely fella. Losing him was a real blow.

Only two tracks from the Australian version made the International release ("She's Got Balls" and "Little Lover"). Different artwork on the Aus. version too. The rest of the tracks have appeared (on '74 Jailbreak' and 'Backtracks').

'Strength...' was ready to go in '92 on Geffen, the label did go so far as to ship promos out (I had one) but then they dropped the band. Maybe radio didn't hear a 'single', who knows. Music For Nations ended up sticking it out in '94 but of course by then, no-one really cared for that kind of music. It did OK as I recall (in Europe at least) but nothing startling. 'DCE' was a great record, altho

It's not the clearest version but I always liked this intro by Seether from a few years back - https://youtu.be/rEj25FvWmDM?t=4m41s I worked on this tour and I never got tired of this intro to the encores - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2VWpRf1z3g

Hey Ted, yep, J3 is definitely a genius. I have a ton of Sect. 8 demos that should have been released. Such a great songwriter and a killer band. Hoping to catch up with 3 when The Struts hit London soon.

I hear you Terry but I think in this instance, I can't think of too many frontmen who wouldn't have said/done something. Twisted were doing their show, Dee was in the middle of one of his 'chats' with the audience when the Europe tech started playing... Most singers would have said something, some jokingly, but the likes of Dee, (and Seb Bach, Axl, Nugent and countless other verbose frontmen for

That's nonsense. Two stages of that size would have a monitor board for each stage, so the monitor guy for Europe (for instance) could set up his stage (monitor mix scene, IEMS etc.) while the other band (Twisted in this instance) performs on the other, with their monitor guy running their board. It's the exact same set up at Wacken; two stages, side by side that run so there's minimal gaps in th
