I very much liked Motherland and Kingmaker.  Got sidetracked, so I likely won't get to this until tomorrow now.

Can you imagine some alien race comes to a large nebula they've never seen before, and it just turns out it's the Federation's dumping ground for space-smile?

I had a listen to half of the Michael Sweet.  I think he wrote this album just after he visited the All Time Most Generic Heavy Metal Riffs museum.

Hmm........seems to have had very positive reviews for the most part.  I haven't got to it yet.


This popped up on Youtube today  - Fates Warning being interviewed in 1989  and Jim has a brand new WDADU sleeveless on.  :)

I got six songs in I think.  Sounded fine but no creativity.  Interested in what you think Brent.

I'm liking what I've heard from the new Michael Sweet, sounds like a continuation of the last three Stryper albums.  The song with Todd LaTorre is awesome.

Maybe I will go through and listen to the whole thing first.

Just discovered the Rockpalast YouTube channel. Loads of live shows from their festivals. Currently enjoying Fifth Angel. Loads to dig into here.

This is a solid channel it seems, good concert footage.  Not just rock either, lots of reggae.  I just put on The Skints show from this channel.  Good quality and well done.

haha-  Motley Crue have torn up their "legally binding" contract with the fans who attended their last shows and are doing a tour with Leppard and Poison.

Bakers all around the world are rejoicing that Vince Neil is back on tour.

Def Leppard were pretty damn good the last time I saw them a year or so ago - obviously you have to be able to tolerate Hysteria but they are pulling out songs like Diehard The Hunter , Mirror Mirror etc.........compared to other acts of similar vintage (Bon Jovi , Whitesnake etc..) the show that they put on is about the best going.   Great sound , lighting too.   Joe has a damn tough gig with his vocals and needs to falsetto a lot , but again - relative to his competition he is doing a great job.

Should rip that up immediately

And these farewells are such a joke.  I've often thought of the Motley Crue local show on their farewell tour being one of my biggest concert regrets of choosing not to go.  I've always enjoyed their music but heard so much bad stuff about their live show to not want to go back then and it seemed like that was my one and only chance.  I guess not.  I think I'll go to this show, mostly for Def Leppard who I love, but Poison is pretty fun live too and then I'll just watch the shit show that is Motley Crue.  Def Leppard should be headlining though IMO.

Yeah, I'm being a bit extreme.  I did listen to Pyromania I think it was a couple of times when you guys recommended it a while back and it's a pretty good 80's hard rock album.

If that gig swings around here, I just might go.  I'm interested in seeing Motley Dylan.

So a couple things. I really only have a few "concert nights out" per year as a married father. Sometimes I'll say, "boy that would be great if I was single, I'd definitely go." But that wouldn't even apply here.

Why would I care if a 60 year old Def Leppard pull out a deep track from High n Dry? How about not making fucking suck album after suck album since 1987? I could not see any circumstance that I would pay money to see Def Leppard. If you don't believe in the old tracks like that, then don't pull it out in the hopes to get a guy like me to pay you money. If you really believe in Mirror Mirror, then make a fucking album that convinces me that you are a hard rock band, and not the hair rock's version of NSYNC. Fuck Def Leppard. Seriously. Fuck them.

And speaking of similar vintage? Fuck Bon Jovi and Whitesnake too. Especially Whitesnake. I don't care about Bon Jovi.  But at least he still has respectable (not that I'd listen) albums that still crank out a hit or two. But Whitesnake has been a fucking joke since the late 80's too.

I'm getting pissed off just thinking about it.  :lol Not at you Brent. :lol

I can tolerate what you said up til the bit about Bon Jovi still having respectable albums. 




They are the worst of the bunch by a fucking mile !   :lol


Def Leppard actually base their whole show now on High n Dry through Adrenalize + Retroactive so about half of it is pretty damn good :)    I haven't liked anything much they've done since Pyro , although their last album got good reviews from old fans. I didn't like it.   I'm not down on Hysteria as much as many here ,but do prefer the earlier material.

Whitensnake.........yeah a bit of a parody of themselves now and their recent output is patchy.  As far as songwriting goes the bluesy rock albums they did with Aldrich (like Forevermore) weren't great in my opinion but on a songwriting level I'd say they're better than anything Leppard or Bon Jovi have done in ages.

Bon Jovi are just a fucking joke on all levels .  Now you've pissed me off thinking about how fucking shit Bon Jovi are :lol

I was already pissed off today before reading that anyway so yeah, fuck Bon Jovi.  Fucking sell out motherfucker.  Just never liked him or anything he really did.  Don't rate Sambora either.

Fuck Coverdale too I guess.  I saw them a few years back and was disappointed.  Mother fucker hardly sings.  Reb Beach should get Coverdale's paycheck.  At least they had 1987 and Sykes.

Fuck Def Leppard just for Pour Some Sugar on Me.  Fuck that song to hell.
