Someone Else? / 2018 Farewell Tours
« on: January 26, 2018, 01:48:38 PM »
The list is growing of 2018 Farewell Tours, in what looks to be the year of the Farewell Tours and we're not even out of January yet.

Elton John
Lynyrd Skynyrd

In addition to Neil Diamond's retirement from the road.

So, who else is on this doorstep that you could see announcing a farewell tour in the near future, or that you think should due to declining performance or health, old age or before members (or in some cases more members pass away).

I would say The Rolling Stones, Kinks, Yes (with as many core members as possible), Genesis (with as many core members as possible), Deep Purple, Rainbow (with a real lineup), Foreigner (now that some of the original members have been hanging around cause Mick Jones is getting up there and has had his health issues) for starters.

Found some pretty cool video snippets of fan ejections, rocker meltdowns, band technical difficulties and bloopers etc. Some of these are pretty fuckin funny  :D

« on: December 02, 2017, 01:48:33 PM »
Vinnie Vincent (Vincent Cusano) is best known as Ace Frehley's first replacement on lead guitar in Kiss and for his solo band the Vinnie Vincent Invasion which also featured singer Mark Slaughter and Dana Strum who would go onto form Slaughter. Vincent was the last member of Kiss to have a unique makeup design (the Ankh Warrior) until the band were first shown without the makeup on MTV in 1983. Vincent first appeared on an album by the band Treasure which was led by Felix Cavaliere former Rascal's front man and fellow New Yorker in 1977. He then moved to Los Angeles and was a staff songwriter for the Happy Days and Joannie Loves Chachi series in 1980. He has also played with Dan Hartman, and the bands Hunter, Hitchhiker and Heat dating back to 1970.

During Vincent's time in Kiss he played lead guitar on six of the nine tracks on the Creatures of the Night album, co writing three and recorded the Lick It Up album, co writing eight of the albums ten songs. He was terminated from the band in 1984 following the Lick It Up tour. He was brought back in the mix in 1992 to co write three songs for the Revenge album before falling out of favor with the band again.

The Vinnie Vincent Invasion was formed a year after his departure from Kiss, the band first featured Robert Fleischman on vocals for the debut album, he was soon after replaced by Mark Slaughter, the rest of the lineup included Dana Strum and Bobby Rock for their debut album in 1986. The band released a follow up album in 1988 All Systems Go. The band broke up in 1989 with Mark Slaughter and Dana Strum then former Slaughter. Vincent then reunited with Robert Fleischman in 1989-90 and recorded some demo's, some of which would be later be released in 1996 on the ep Euphoria.

Vincent has been absent from the music scene for many years thereafter but will attending the 2018 Atlanta Kiss Expo in January.

90's to present Heavy Metal Bands / Sons of Apollo
« on: October 25, 2017, 10:10:34 PM »
This new, shall we say, super group has now released their debut album. Featuring former Dream Theatre members Mike Portnoy on drums, and Derek Sherinian on keyboards joined by Billy Sheehan on bass, Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal on guitar and Jeff Scott Soto on vocals. What's everybody think of these guys so far.

First song released is Lost in Oblivion

I like it, pretty fast paced cool tune. I like the bass and guitar double lead and some cool synths from Derek

Someone Else? / Las Vegas Shooting/ Concert safety
« on: October 03, 2017, 02:32:24 PM »
That was some horrific shit in Las Vegas. Makes ya wonder about concert venue and especially outside festivals in terms of safety at these events and when it may happen again. Between the Eagles of Death Metal show in Europe, The Arianna Grande concert incident, The Florida nightclub incident, and now this open air concert sniper attack. It seems like these types of events are becoming a welcomed target for these types of incidents. This one in particular gives others the idea of just how easy it would be to do it from that perspective, which is scary as fuck.

80's Classic Rock / Modern English
« on: January 24, 2017, 02:56:24 PM »
These guys are still at it and quietly released a new album last year in 2016 "Take me to the Trees". An English new wave band formed in 1979, they enjoyed some success with I'll Melt with You and Hands across the sea. Currently the entire original lineup still remains intact minus drummer Richard Brown. Some of their earlier material is pretty cool and a little darker than the pop hits that gained them success.

Original lineup:
Robbie Grey: Vocals
Gary McDowell: Guitars, vocals
Michael Conroy: Bass, vocals
Stephen Walker: Keyboards
Richard Brown: Drums

Current Lineup: Grey/McDowell/Conroy/Walker and Roy Martin (drums)

I'll melt with You;
Hands across the sea;
Those were the hits, and I do like I'll melt with you.

Here are some other good ones most probably aren't familiar with.

The Guitar Gods / John Sykes
« on: January 16, 2017, 12:19:16 PM »
John Sykes, is an English guitarist, singer, songwriter (age 57) who came on the scene in 1980 with the Tygers of Pan Tang. He then went on to became a member of Badlands (not to be confused with the US Badlands band that featured Jake E Lee and Ray Gillen), Street Fighter, Thin Lizzy, Phil Lynott's solo band, Whitesnake and Blue Murder as well as his own solo work. He co-wrote the majority of songs on Whitesnake's 1987 self titled hit album.

This guy in my opinion is heavily deserving to be lumped up there with the best of them.

Tygers of Pan Tang; Do it Good live with solo

Street Fighter; She's no Angel (1980)

Thin Lizzy; Jailbreak live 1983

Whitesnake; Crying in the Rain live and solo Rock in Rio 1985

70's Classic Rock / The Clash
« on: December 23, 2016, 01:43:18 PM »
The Clash were an integral part of the original British punk scene formed in 1976. For most of their recording career the Clash consisted of Joe Strummer (guitar, backing vocals), Mick Jones (lead vocals, lead guitar), Paul Simonon (bass, backing vocals), and Nicky "Topper" Headon (drums, percussion). Headon left the group in 1982, and Jones left the following year. The group continued on with various new members, finally disbanding in 1986.

Their third album London Calling was their breakthrough album in the U.S. and is considered one of the greatest rock albums ever recorded by many critics. Shortly after Joe Strummer's death in 2003 the band were inducted along with original drummer Terry Chimes to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The band never formally reunited after 1986 for any tours or recordings. The members all went on to be involved with other projects, the most notable being  mick Jones with Big Audio Dynamite.

Here are some of what I consider the bands best offerings.

90's to Present Classic Rock / LIVE
« on: December 12, 2016, 07:49:33 PM »
Live, The rock band formed in York, PA and consisting originally of Ed Kowalczyk (lead vocals, guitar), Chad Taylor (lead guitar, vocals), Patrick Dahlheimer (bass) and Chad Gracey (drums) have announced the original lineup will be reuniting for a 2017 tour and are currently working on new music for release next year as well.

The band was active from the release of a 1989 self released "The Death of a Dictionary" which was credited to their former name of Public Affection. Followed by an EP of demo's in 1990 titled Divided Mind, Divided Planet via their mailing list. In 1991 they changed their name to Live. As Live, their first release was an EP entitled four songs, featuring the single Operation Spirit (The Tyrrany of Tradition) followed by their full length debut album Mental Jewelry, which will celebrate it's 25th anniversary next year as it was released on December 31, 1991.

The band rocketed up the charts with their sophomore effort "Throwing Copper", released in 1994 featuring the hits Lightening Crashes, I Alone, Selling the Drama and All over You. Eventually hitting number on the Billboard top 200 in May, 1995. The album has sold over eight million copies in the US alone. In 1995 they appeared on MTV Unplugged.

The follow up to Throwing Copper was "Secret Samadhi", released in 2007. This album did not enjoy the same level of massive success as its predecessor by sold over two million copies and included the singles Lakini's Juice, Rattlesnake, Turn My Head and Freaks. In 1999 the band released their fourth full length album "The Distance to Here" which entered the US album chart at #4 and featured the hit single The Dolphins Cry. In 2001 the band released their fifth album, simply titled "V" which following the release of the first single Simple Creed garnered mixed reviews, but the song Overcome would be the albums selling point after receiving much airplay following the events of 9/11/01. The V record peaked at #22 on the US album charts and failed to achieve gold status. Birds of Prey was released in 2003 reaching number 28 on the US charts with the successful hot 100 single Heaven. In 2006 they released "Songs from Black Mountain" which reached #52 on the Billboard 200, the first single was "The River." In 2007 the band released Radiant Sea: a compilation of bootleg rarities and two new songs, followed by a 2008 live dvd in the Netherlands titled "Live at the Paradiso - Amsterdam".

In 2009, Live announced they would taking a two year hiatus to work on other projects, as Kowalczyk released a solo album, while the others formed a band called "The Gracious Few". In 2012 the band reformed without lead vocalist Ed Kowalczyk, with new singer Chris Shinn (Unified Theory) This lineup produced the album "The Turn" released in 2014 (peaking at #133 on the Billboard 200).

The original lineup is now preparing for a new album and a 2017 tour with Ed Kowalczyk back as the front man.
