Indeed! Mad respect for Ritchie. It must be the first time in rock n' roll history that someone, for the "greater good" for lack of a better term, looks willing to even lose his place in the band.
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

Huh?  His place in the band will never be in jeopardy.

Priest announced a fall tour for the US with whatever is left of Queensryche as special guests or whatever.

I doubt I will go, unless someone really twists my arm.  The venue they are coming to here in the St Louis area isn't a good one.

^^ Ehhh, they rescheduled their SoCal show with Queensryche from Microsoft Theater in Downtown LA to Toyota Arena in Ontario.  Not really much of a difference for me.  May go if there's a ticket on the cheap as a curio.

That's me; it's all about venue.  If it's the casinos, I'm out.  If they play a smaller theater, I'm in.  I will drink through QR, though.  I saw them back in the day as an opening act, and I'd rather remember them for what they were, not what they are.

I saw them on their earlier leg and both bands were great. The comments about QR are weird but to each their own. I don't have a show on this leg close to me so I probably won't be venturing far unless gas prices drop miraculously.  :D

I REALLY enjoyed Priest on the Firepower tour.

However, getting me to drive out to Ontario on a Monday night would require something much more especially special.  If it were a Friday or Saturday, I'd seriously consider it.

Well, its the Oakdale and its the first show of the tour which has me slightly interested in making the trip up to see it.

Bought a ticket for the show in Illinois - it's 11 miles from my house, compared to the 50 I usually have to travel to Chicago or Milwaukee.

14th row!   :metal :metal :metal

Thrilled to see Priest in a small theater and be that close to them.

I hear ya on 'Ryche. Them being on the bill actually makes me want to go less, as I saw them only once back in '95 and it was awesome, so I like the idea of thinking that I saw them once and it was great, rather seeing the scraps of what is left and it leaving a bad taste.

QR were amazing live this year! They did a headliner gig by me during the Priest tour and slayed.

Eh, that was okay.  You missed a note in there in bar 26.  Also, I have the same chair. 


(I'm kidding; that was really, really cool.  You make it look so easy.  It also gives a good appreciation for how good a soloist Glenn can be. Except the chair; I do have the same chair.)

I have just heard on the radio (Planet Rock) that the drums bass and guitars are recorded for the 19th JP album.

Excited because Ritchie hinted at a proggier direction (hopefully reminiscent of the 70s sound and songwriting).

So like Nostradamus but not being too much Nostradamus?  :lol

Heard a slightly shortened version I made of the album recently. I still think it's a great album, a pity the fanbase didn't like it and they didn't believe in it. At the very least, also the title track deserved to be played live.

Agreed. Title track is awesome. A heavier/more aggressive version of that album would be fine by me.

I made a 1 cd version of it back in the day, it's really strong.

Thanks Tom.  Sykes is incredible.  My fav solos from him are actually from Looking For Love.  That outro is incredible.

I'm really looking forward to seeing them on this tour in a few weeks.  I saw them once before, at Ozzfest 2004, when Halford re-joined the band.  It's surprising to see them drop Painkiller, but that is an awesome setlist.

Genocide is the one song on Unleashed in the East that never really clicked for me.  I'm more excited about Steeler.  Really wish they were playing a closer venue or on a weekend.

I maintain that the RRHoF is a piss-stain. Johnny Rotten was right. I'd have more respect for Priest if they told them to fuck off, but they want to do this so more power to them. Not much of an accomplishment, really. That said, I'm happy for Les Binks. This is a guy who deserves a moment in the spotlight. And though he's dead, Dave Holland, too. I didn't care much for the guy as a drummer for Priest, but given what went down it'll nice for him to get some recognition that [hopefully] doesn't resort to a bunch of boos and snickering. Kenny, Rob, Glen, and Ian have had their legend status for ages. It'll be nice to see some of that wear off onto Les and Dave. They both earned it.


edit: Oh, and the reason I'm posting in the first place is to chime in that according to Les, there will be 3 guitarists and 2 drummers playing an 8 minute medley.

Can't wait to see a medley of Breaking the Law, Living after Midnight, Metal Gods and You've Got Another Thing Coming.  All songs that showcase none of the bands skills.

Even though Priest was a little bigger in the 80s, I am surprised to see them get in before Maiden, who is way more popular nowadays.  This bodes well for Maiden to get in sooner rather than later.

Not that matters all that much in the grand scheme, but it is good to see some overlooked bands that are worthy get recognized.
