Yep, big fan of Mats voice. It's a very good album. He and Anders have a great musical understanding.

The song was written by the guys from Kick Axe with Spencer Proffer (who produced 'Ready to Strike').

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.

It was called Baby Face not Babe Ruth and (according to Ian Paice) it was abandoned after one rehearsal because and he and Blackmore felt Lynott wasn't a good enough bass player

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

He was bitching at Europe's guitar tech, who had begun sound checking while Twisted were on stage in Barcelona. The main stages are next to each other and there is a rule about not making noise while the other stage is running. I don't think Dee was out of line in that situation to be fair.

Whilst that's a nice thought, the RAH is over 5000 capacity, and last time Night Ranger played in London it was at an 800 cap room. As good as their recent output has been, I don't think their popularity has increased quite that much in the UK.

I wrote a feature on those shows for Classic Rock AOR... Giant didn't appear as part of the series, but Tuff, The Scream, Warrior Soul, Bang Tango, Badlands, Danger Danger, Shadowking and XYZ did. Valentine, Shooting Star and Cry Wolf were all due to play but all their shows were pulled. Bad English were also on the 'hit list' and a deal was agreed but the band were falling apart at the

I saw them at The Marquee prior to the Def Leppard tour, £1.50 a ticket and £5 a t-shirt (as I recall). Sensational live act.

That was because Mike Stone didn't rate him as a drummer.Stone wanted a drummer that he knew was good in the studio, hence why he called in Steve Smith.

It is quite different to the Elektra version. Totally different mix, different vocal takes on certain songs, different guitar work in places too. It was released as Don Dokken 'Breaking The Chains' (with Don on the cover) and under the Dokken band name on Carrerre. The cover is the same as the Elektra release essentially, except it's purple/white artwork rather than red/white. 'Paris is Burn

'Bounce' was indeed a single. Admittedly released in 2002 as a US radio only 'single'. It did however get released commercially in Japan as a double A-side with 'Misunderstood'.

I wrote a feature on the American Dream series in CR AOR issue 10. Some of the shows didn't happen because of low ticket sales (Cry Wolf being one) and others because of record label politics (Valentine). The only shows Steve remembers selling out were Danger Danger, Bang Tango and Warrior Soul.

The original drummer lined up for this project was Hendrik 'Hempo' Hilden (Trash, Baltimoore, John Norum etc.) but apparently a drunken mishap during rehearsals led to him being sent home and Ken and Mikkey being called in.

The label didn't want this track on the album, in fact they didn't even want the band to record it. Mr. Cooper had to fight them to have it included.
