Fireballet 1975-
Night On Bald Mountain:
Les Cathedrales:

This was a New Jersey prog band that released two albums, their 1975 debut Night On Bald Mountain was produced by Ian McDonald (King Crimson/Foreigner). The debut album was well received, their sophomore effort was not and they split shortly after.

Here is another interview that blabbermouth had up a few weeks back.

Here is the Lizzy spin off band Starwood, which released an album on Metal Blade in 2004 "If It Ain't Broke, Break It". This album I believe featured Lizzy, Joey and Marten Anderson and was made after Alex Nelson tragically died in the car accident and Lizzy had disbanded Lizzy Borden for while.

70's Classic Rock / Roxy Music

Roxy Music was an English rock band formed in 1970 by Bryan Ferry, who became the bands lead vocalist and chief songwriter and bassist Graham Simpson. The other longtime members were Phil Manzanera (guitar), Andy Mackay (Saxophone and oboe), and Paul Thompson (drums/percussion). Other former members included Brian Eno (synthesizers), Eddie Jobson (synthesizers/violin), and John Gustafson (bass). The band took a break from group activities in 1976 and again in 1983, but reunited in 2001 and toured intermittently until their breakup in 2011. Ferry frequently enlisted Roxy Music members for his solo releases.

Their debut album was released in 1972, they incorporated elements of glam rock, progressive and also were a heavy influence on early punk rock and the new wave scene. The band released eight studio albums. Other notable members who passed through the band included Paul Carrack, John Wetton and Rick Wills among others.

Here is smattering of some of their material that I enjoy. You'll notice I prefer their older material when they were a little more harder edged.

I was checking to see if there was much live footage on these guys and found some. Upon watching it I thought it vaguely looked familiar, was this an MTV concert broadcast back in the early days of MTV?? I seem to think it may have been and that I may have seen this footage back. I used to tape all those MTV concerts back in the day on vhs tapes. I have no idea what ever happened to them.

90's to present Heavy Metal Bands / Re: Alice in Chains

I was a big Layne fan, it's been tough for me to get into the band with Duvall, but these songs are pretty good though. I watched some of the live footage, it's not bad.

I only have a greatest hits album from The Guess Who so I can't say I've followed their career. However, this is SHAMEFUL!  :-[

Frankly, the new single has more in common with Nelson or Firehouse than it does The Guess Who. Talk about interchangeable.  :(

It's no wonder why there isn't even a conversation about them being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame any time soon. They've tarnished their own "legacy", for lack of a better word. Nice job Garry.  :-[

Agreed. It's one thing to trust make a living via the nostalgia market, which is cool as long as you don't try to pass it off as the original lineup or guys that made the hits, but re-invent the situation into something different  ::)

No doubt, hope so  :D

Where the hell you been, Justbob?  you guys all gotta come out of the shadows man, if the place stays active he won't close this place down.

I guarantee you if this place went down, Brian would have a celebratory re-opening and get his long winded last word in at that time (take note NJFF, I'd bet my left nut ( and throw in the right one as a bonus) that is what would happen.  >:D

Believe me brother, I'm well aware  C:-)

;D 8) Very likely scenario possibilities Livgrnfan, he likely has been just trying to out wait this forums existence before doing so, or he likely would have already done it  C:-) >:D

 :D Well, I hope then that our leader (I mean this affectionately) NJFIREFIGHTER decides to keep this forum open for a long long time.  There's no need to re-inflict that parasitic BDR ego-forum on this saturated internet.  More importantly, I'd miss you all too much.  ;)

Appreciate the kind words  ;D I hear ya man.  8)   

QUEENSRYCHE: / Re: Chris DeGarmo on new Alice in Chains CD
« on: August 14, 2018, 07:22:03 PM »
Cool to see his participation on the Alice In Chains album. I'm not sure if it was just the one song that Cantrell had spoke about or if he played on a few others.

As far as him guesting with Queensryche either on album or live. I'm quite surprised honestly that he has distanced himself so much from the situation and hasn't appeared with either side live or in studio (Tate or the band) but yeah it would be cool to see/hear for sure. I don't view him these days as integral as some others do, but it would be kind of cool.

Pretty heavy bad ass song from Eric Wagner's The Skull, also featuring former Trouble bassist Ron Holzner.

Foreigner has announced more classic lineup combined with current lineup reunion shows, I'm considering the Atlantic City show.

QUEENSRYCHE: / Re: Queensryche 2018 Show Reviews & Tour Discussion

Some of the recent posts on the facebook page are saying after the new album release a new set list will be unveiled, this has been the official response to some posts regarding wanting to hear the newer material live. I also noticed that most of the shows in June featured a 17 song set list.

If they could bump that number up just a couple more songs. Ideally twenty, but I'll take two more for a total of nineteen. If they did that. I say they should play ten classics and nine Todd era songs (could do three from each record Todd has performed on). I think this is the perfect time to go out on that limb and fucking do it. They have played it safe now for about six years pandering mostly to the nostalgia and the whole return to the classic era thing, which was cool but now it's time to go out on a limb and burn through a strong representation of the newer material.

My set list wish list for 2019 looks like this:

Where Dreams Go To Die
Take Hold Of The Flame
New Song
Screaming In Digital
New Song
Roads To Madness
Child Of Fire
Condition Human
Anybody Listening
New Song
Revolution Calling
In This Light
Open Road
Queen Of The Reich
Eyes Of A Stranger/Anarchy Xtra

* The song order could be played with and tweaked but this in my opinion would be a bad ass set. I know it drops Lucidity, I Don't Believe In Love and a few other popular tunes, but remember the whole point of this is to go out on a limb and change shit up. You can't do that if you leave too many "untouchables" in the set  list. I don't truly believe the set list changes will be this dramatic, but I would welcome it  8)

Yeah, I agree. But these old guys that are still trying to carry the torch for these bands won't concede that extra cash for being able to put the old band name on the marquee. I can't say I blame them, but the fans get fewer and fewer as the years go on. Then to try to change up and sound current (which is nothing like the band is known for) I don't think that helps matters any.
