Was there ever a doubt? Hell, his last solo album still holds up today.

I'm not picking up this collection, as it's severely lacking in his early work. I had high hopes for it, too - as in most places, his first two albums BRYAN ADAMS and YOU WANT IT, YOU GOT IT are out of print. Even though I have both, I was hoping for more representation on this release. But all there is are "Remember" from the former, and "Lonely Nights" form the latter. A

Bronsan was the one who opted out of being James Bond. From what I've heard, he felt he was getting too old to play the part now, and would rather bow out gracefully now, than continue past what he thought suited the roll (Ala Roger Moore).

Yes, it is a great song, regardless. One of those songs that I think we all relate to so well, as we can see it applying to ourselves. I just like Marty's voice on this track - as it's deeper tone lends a bit more to the song than Tom's. And, I could be wrong here - because there's a lot of good guitarists who play on the NM album, and they're not clear on who does what - but I believe it's Dan

You know, I do belive I like the New Monkees version better than Tom Cochran's original. Andrew - if you have it, you should put up "Carlene" from that record - which is a song Larry sings on - and one of the better on the record, too. If you don't, I'd be more than happy to donate it.

Is this the same guy who was a member of the short lived NEW MONKEES? TV show was terrible, but the one album they did was actually pretty decent.

It's really not that great. It's ok, but it's POP at best and nowhere near being considered Melodic ROCK. And yes, I have listened to it, AND seen the band live recently - admittedly, not by choice, I had to work the concert - but they were nothing special. Also, probably the most pretentious bastards I've ever met. Each guy had his own tour bus, for chrissake. They occupied a whole side of the

Musicians tell how to beat system Web sites instruct fans on how to beat copy-protected CDs - from CNN Tuesday, October 4, 2005; Posted: 11:57 a.m. EDT (15:57 GMT) NEW YORK (Billboard) -- Major labels Sony BMG and EMI are releasing more and more new CDs that block fans from dragging their tunes to iPods. Now, in the most bizarre turn yet in the record industry's piracy struggles, stars Dave Ma

I was thinking the same thing. Especially since there last official release was a live DVD, only about a year ago. On top of that, this show was recorded in 2002. Guess the well is REALLY starting to run dry. Eother that, or they're trying to outdo KISS.

And I would take the opposite tack, and say that the new OLP album IS more about new ideas, and not the same old thing as the earlier albums. That said, however, it is a bit jarring on first listen - especially after the very commercial sound of GRAVITY - but also very much a grower. One of my faves of this year, too.

Hedley was pretty decent. I might have to pick that one up. I like that they use the Iron Maiden font for their logo. I would also agree that they're a cut above Simple Plan. The Trews were ok, but they didn't really knock my socks off. On the Bif Naked style front, another Canadian band's CD that I did pick up not too long ago, was THE WEEKEND - "Beatbox My Heart Beat". Kind of a mix

Being thier US debut, the record label here (Razor & Tie) added "Lovercall" and "Sounds Of Love" as bonus tracks. Strong tracks on this one include "Forget My NAme", "I Love Living In The City", "I Want You" and "Strut" - or at least, those are the ones I'm digging.

Yeah, I forgot Bif Naked. Just picked up her latest, which just came out in the US last week, and I already own the rest. I'll check out the other links, and get back to you. Thanks, again!

Hey Kauna - any other new(er) good Canadian bands you'd reccomend? Don't know what your opinion is on them, but I quite like Our Lady Peace, Matthew Good, The Odds (are they still around) - but I'm wondering who may have slipped under my radar. A lot of stuff that comes out up there never even makes it down here, or if it does, not right away. Of course I also love the classics ...Triumph, Hone

Just picked up this band's latest album "We Sweat Blood", after hearing it being played before a club show I saw recently. From what I understand, they are a Canadian 3 piece, and some, if not most, of this CD was previously released there - even though this is their debut US album, and it was only released here earlier this year. If you're a fan of classic 70's riffs - ala AC/DC, Th

Excellent topic Coco! I actually have Ten Inch Men, The Men, and a few others I've seen mentioned here. I could name at least a dozen or so more of my own, but for now, I'll just go with three, and oddly enough, they were all released in 1992. 1) THE SIGHS - "What Goes On" - this was released on Charisma (a former subdivision of Virgin) records, and there's not a bad track on it.

Actually, it's much 'heavier' sounding than BUSH, for the most part - likely due to the production from Paige Hamilton, and guitar work of Chris Traynor - both of the band HELMET. I always found it funny how BUSH was hardly accepted in their own country, but were huge here in the US - or, at least it always seemed that way. Their first album alone spawned at least 5 'alternative rock' classic so

Man, I just wish people would stop refering to "Pretty Vegas" as JD's original song. All he did was write lyrics for a song that INXS had already written the music for - which would be a big reason WHY it DOES sound like an INXS song. At best, it's half an original song. That said, JD has done much to improve over the last few weeks in my eyes. I think it'll be very close between he a

When I was in high school, I used to paint band logo's on the art room windows - Aerosmith, AC/DC, Van Halen, and the like. Once a month, as it would take about that long to make one, I would also do big replicas of album covers, that I would hang in the door of the window to the art room. Can't quite remember all of them, but I know I did... AC/DC - "High Voltage" and "Highway To

Yeah - but you are missing one VERY important fact - JD DID NOT write the song he performed. He only wrote the lyrics, INXS wrote the music. That's why it sounds like something the band would actually do. I, for one, was very surprised that no one else has called him on this. On another note, though, I will say his performance this week over last was VASTLY improved.

"Hot Cherei", if it's the same song I'm thinking of, was first done by Danny Spanos in '83. I'll have to dig out the vinyl sometime to check. "Since You've Been Gone" is actually a Russ Ballard song - he wrote it. That one, along with many others...
