Hey folks, While I agree that this decision can have big drawbacks, such as automatic comparisons and a lack of "we're looking to the future with our new singer", I don't think we're the target audience for this second disc to begin with. That's the only thing that makes some sense. It's probably geared towards the casual fan that has heard some of the hits and recognizes them, but

Hey folks, I always thought it was by-the-numbers sitcom material....most sitcoms are engineered to deliver tried-and-true, safe humour which can make them a bit predictable. Toothless. I've admittedly only seen two or three episodes of 2.5 Men, but that was my impression...maybe the wrong ones? And ratings popularity in the US is hardly an indicator of quality; witness how long crapola Accor

Hey folks, Hadn't seen this reported anywhere....apparently Eddie Van Halen is appearing on lame US sitcom Two and a Half Men: http://hollywoodinsider.ew.com/2009/08/04/exclusive-eddie-van-halen-to-appear-on-two-and-a-half-men/ Cheers, Jack.

Hey everyone, All this talk below on the state of the MR world (which is naturally a recurring theme in the forum), got me thinking about the future of the forum. I'm shocked by the fact that I've been here for over a decade...which has never happened with any other website. I was maybe 21 when I first came here. I may go away for a couple of months, or only skim through posts for certain p

Hey folks, Just wanted to share this vid I came across of Prince playing this great guitar solo during his Rock n Roll Hall of Fame induction, with Tom Petty. I hadn't seen in before. Just watch it and tell me he doesn't fucking rock as well as anyone: (you can skip to his playing at minute 3:30, he keeps going until the end) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ifp_SVrlurY Great feel.... Cheers

As we have said before, complex subject, but in principle I would be in favor of some form of control/justice/punishment. But certain conditions MUST be met, and they aren't. 1. Proportion. Sorry, but this is a load of horse cock. We cannot get so caught up in the fact that fining people is right that we stop caring about *how* it's taking place. This is never going to catch on or, indeed,

Hi Dave, Aw, that's beautiful news....warms the heart, mate. What a privilege to bring new life & hope into your family. With the heart-wrenching year you've been through, it's lovely that you're getting such a unique gift in your life...and I think the meaning of it may resonate even more with your family. All my best to you, your lady, and the little one on the way. Cheers, Jack. PS.

Hi Peter! That sounds amazing...seeing him live has worked its way up my To Do list. I'll keep checking him out as I've been pleasantly surprised by what I've found; sometimes even floored. Actually, I read that there's video of his performance at the Montreux Jazz Festival up at the official site LotusFlow3r.com. Unfortunately, to have access to these specials, tickets, and videos one has

I appreciate snark and all, but let's not be uncool. Morales is a good guy and a talent, and he served his time. Sometimes people make mistakes (though from what I heard there was more to the story) but I don't think he deserves to be referred to mostly on account of the jail thing. I've known some really decent people in my life who have fucked up at one time or another. I stopped judgin

Hey, I mean, I totally get your average MR fan not enjoying, say, "Pussy Control", but his output is huge and there may be material with crossover elements for folks to enjoy. For example, look at "Guitar" from his more recent work, which as it's name implies, is more guitar-oriented and rocky: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpQcQpVysWw (the Verizon promo version was all

Hey Rich, Have you heard this cover version? It features Colin, who also sings the final chorus: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqOU7r4hdmw But personally, Ive always liked this dressed down version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0DsJQdpwwI (ignore the drawings) Cheers, Jack.

Hey folks, Does anyone else like this guy? I've been discovering some of his records lately and, man, there's loads o material there. Still becoming familiar with a lot of the stuff because I'm fairly new....any recommendations or comments? Personally I think he's enormously fucking cool. This guy isn't just an innovative writer, but he has so much of the rockstar vibe. Look - he's clearly

Hey folks, No, no forthcoming album news, but it looks like Michael is doing well these days and is still managing his private studio, Studio M. Seems like he was smart enough to invest in it when he was on a major label & MTV, instead of blowing his cash on crap like so many others. Anyway, he seems to have some kind of blog thing here, where he writes his thoughts/commentaries: http:/

Wow, they're trying to milk their past for all theyve got....since they clearly have no faith in the future, having lost singer after singer. So you may as well make a nostalgia cash grab before you retire. Good one, lads. Cheers, Jack.

Actually, my impression is that he's content to play second fiddle to Collen. Based on comments & interviews, I get the feeling that Campbell sees Leppard very much as a "day job". He's not big on the hard rock - which he has referred to with disdain, saying he's more of a pop & blues guy - and seems very lackadaisical about the whole thing. Collen, on the other hand, looks

Hey folks, Have to back Laurent on this one. ShadowKing bored me to tears...once I had lowered my expectations, which may have been a little too high because of Lou Gramm's pedigree, I listened again. Nope, still boring. Regardless of promotion, I don't think it would have ever had any kind of success...the songs just weren't accessible. Would you believe it? I've never heard Riverdogs.

Hey, If genres vary wildly, I do separate them. For instance, rock, hard rock, and pop would all occupy the same area....whereas instrumental music would go elsewhere (unless it was, say a Neal Schon record, see?). And each separate category would, of course, be in alphabetical order. Honestly though, arranging CDs was never for me. Full blown nightmare. Every 2 months or so, it would ine

I'm sure he's pricey, but for some reason, I always assumed that where Mutt makes his serious moolah is on producer's points per album sold? Or do they just pay producers up front? Cheers, Jack

Yeah, I'm surprised to find that sometimes Open is unjustly maligned by many of the hard rock meatheads who think heaviness is the same as quality or credibility. It isn't. Open is still vintage Gotthard in a more melodic, AOR style of the highest order. In fact, it rounds out the catalog nicely. It is by no means less accessible...if anything, it's more immediate. It's a side of them I rea

Jeff, I disagree that their live album/DVD is a good place to start because you won't know the original performances. I'm not usually big on watching live bands I have zero prior reference to. It's harder to access for a beginner. To me, the most accesible trifecta is: Lipservice, G, and Homerun. Those three albums encapsulate what Gotthard is all about. Later on, if you're into more straig

Hey, Is it just me, or has this new Nickelback album with Mutt Lange been far less successful than the one before it? I remember hearing songs like Photograph and Far Away on the radio ad naueseaum until I could hardly stand listening to them, whereas this album had some play off the lead single but that was it. I think Nickelback themselves dropped the ball promoting it - with one or two exce

Hey Folks, Trying to second-guess Steve Perry's state of mind will get us nowhere. It seems quite possible to me from interviews past and other accounts that the man does have an ego - which is understandable, given that he is a famous and enormously talented singer - but it's unfair to extrapolate that and conclude that he's somehow jealous of Pineda. Who knows? Maybe he's unhappy about what

Hey Alex, His death didn't make me take a listen again, for whatever reason. Obviously, the news was a shock, but I think after listening to the umpteenth talking head in the news picking apart minutiae surrounding his death for the past 3 or 4 weeks, I wanted anything unrelated to Jackson. But I did have a moment several years ago when I (musically) discovered Michael Jackson for the first ti

What a damn shame. It's heartbreaking to see someone from our circle goes this soon, especially a man who was by all accounts a lovely person on top of the talent. I hope his family and friends, including Jeff and our very own Tommy, can find strength and solace. Take heart in the moments you spent together alive and in the music, which is a wonderful legacy to leave behind. We will all co
