Back to the  casting: As far as I remember, Kursch doesn't have a whole lot to sing on the album - especially compared to Gildenlow or Lande. I am wondering if, to make his participation worthwhile, he could be the one to sing Lande's parts. I can't see a big name singer like him putting all the effort to make it to the show just to sing what he does on the album...

I'm so happy Arjen has gone full Jaycee.

I only know the dude from Ayreon but the more of him, the better.

Welcome back… here is Supersonic Revolution Lyrics Game #1! And some new music, hope you’ll enjoy 😊

Let us know your guess in the comments below for a chance to win an SR merchandise item. It’s not easy, so best guess wins! Answer on Wednesday, with some new music.

Which ‘70s 4 glam rock artists are referenced in these 4 verses?

seventy-one, time for a change
the hype is on, it’s shocking and strange
he takes the stage, sky in his hair
hot love in the air – everywhere

four London lads, living their dreams
they start a band, as sweet as can be
raising hell, outrageous and wild
leave the sixteens behind – in style

out of the dark with blackened eyes
the king of shock took the world by surprise
electric chairs, spiders and snakes
rock will never be the same – again

crimson blaze crossing his face
we were told he came down from space
thin and white, red spikey hair 
no one out there compares – I swear

Good luck!
Arjen

I am not a glam rock guy so I don't have a horse in this race, but the music clip sounds nice! The debut album is titled Golden Age Of Music and is about the 70s. The first song about the rise of glam rock in the 70s is titled "The Glamattack".

Oooh seems about right. A lot of the FB comments say verse two is The Beatles.

Were they sixteen when they started? I'm not sure what that means, unless it's a typo, but didn't they break up by the end of the sixties? Weren't they rocking hobo beards after the break up?

My first thought was the third one was Ozzy... but Alice makes just as much (or more) sense.

Beatles as Glam?  never would've though that.

First one ... Genesis / Gabriel.  He was certainly shocking and strange.  But again, what is Arjen's definition of "glam"?
If I can do it, it's idiot proof.
Happy is the dog that stops and licks his balls.
I fear for the day when something happens on the right that is SO nuts that even Stadler says "That's crazy".

The first one is Marc Bolan/T. Rex

And the second one could be Sweet and they are leaving the sixties behind, not the sixteens.
Must've been Kwyji sending all the wrong songs.   ;D

I asked Arjen and he said the correct lyric IS "leave the sixteens behind".

I like the music there and Jaycee on the vocals with this type of music could be a treat.
