Southern Rock / Gov't Mule
« on: March 29, 2018, 12:42:57 AM »
Gov't Mule is an American southern rock jam band formed in 1994 by then Allman Brothers Band members Warren Haynes and Allen Woody, joined by drummer Matt Abts who had played with Warren Haynes in Dickie Betts' band. The band initially began as a side project during breaks in work from the Allman Brothers Band. They then released their self titled debut album in 1995, followed by the live release Live from Roseland Ballroom (consisting of their 1995 New Years Eve set opening for Blues Traveler). In 1997 Haynes and Woody left the Allman Brothers to concentrate full time on Gov't Mule. Their second album Dose was released in 1998. In 2000 the band released their critically praised third studio album Life Before Insanity but later that year Allen Woody was found dead in New York City. The band held a benefit "One for Woody" and continued limited touring. Haynes would rejoin the Allman Brothers Band in 2001 and would continue splitting time between the two bands, as well as playing in various incarnations of Grateful Dead spin offs. @001 and 2002 The band released a two volume tribute set to Allen Woody titled The Deep End Volume 1 and Volume 2 enlisted several bass players to perform on different tracks. The band toured behind these releases utilizing different bassists and keyboardists for those dates.

The band expanded to a four piece for their next record Deja Voodoo released in 2004 adding Danny Louis (keyboards, guitar, trumpet, vocals) and Andy Hess (bass). This was followed up by the Mo' Voodoo ep in 2005. High & Mighty was released in 2006, followed by Mighty High (a dub step and reggae album) in 2007. Jorgen Carlsson replaced Andy Hess on bass in 2008 and has remained with the band since. By a thread was the first studio album released by this lineup in 2009. 2013's Shout and 2017's Revolution Come, Revolution Go are the bands two most recent studio releases.

80's Classic Rock / Shooting Star
« on: March 05, 2018, 05:12:16 PM »
I'll put them here because their period of success mostly occurred during the early 80's.

Shooting Star were initially active from 1978-1987, and again from 1989 until 2015 when they went on hiatus due to Van Mclain's illness after contracting West Nile virus. He has now passed away from that illness.

The band underwent many lineup changes over the years but released nine studio albums and a live album.

The debut self titled album contained the hit Last Chance and charted in the billboard chart, as did their next three albums. The initial lineup consisted of,
Van Mclain- guitars, lead vocals
Gary West - lead vocals, guitar, keyboards
Bill Guffey- keyboards
Steve Thomas- drums
Ron Verlin- bass
Charles Waltz- violin, keyboards, vocals
This lineup recorded the first two albums, the third and fourth albums featured all but Guffey. Their fifth album saw Verlin replaced by Norm Dahlor on bass. Mclain and Verlin regrouped the band with a different lineup for their sixth album in 1991 (It's not over). Steve Thomas returned on drums in 2003 and was on their 2006 album Circles. Keith Mitchell is the vocalist featured on the live album. Ronnie Platt (lead vocalist of Kansas who replaced Steve Walsh) fronted the band from 2007 through 2011.

QUEENSRYCHE: / Queensryche's Set List Dilemma 2018
« on: January 19, 2018, 06:31:01 PM »
Following up on what I posted in the 2017 show reviews and tour discussion thread. Something really has to give this year in terms of the set list the band plays.

Todd is entering his sixth year with the band this year and the first five years have been spent playing mostly a limited variation of the back catalog (the classic material) and very seldom and sporadic performances of the new material from the self titled album and condition human (both of which were excellent). With two records of very strong material behind them, the band is about to record a third one. If the new record is even as good as somewhere between the self titled and condition human the band needs to finally start playing the current lineups material.

The band is about to make a third studio album with this lineup, a third studio album is something that Blaze Bayley did not do with Iron Maiden (he did two), Ripper did not do with Priest (he did two). Both those bands went out on limbs and took major chances and risks performing lots of new material. Those two bands were much bigger commercially then Queensryche. Both those bands were reduced to playing smaller venues at that time span and heard their fair share of criticism because of the singer changes and the new material, yet they had the fucking balls to play them. Queensryche needs to do the same in 2018.

The same basic framework of a set list has got to be getting old and stale after five years. I'm going to post some set lists below of Priest with Ripper, and Maiden with Blaze, and for good measure a few of Crue with Corabi. Take a look see.

Priest (they played things a little safer went out on a lesser limb)



It's bad enough they mostly neglected the first two really good comeback albums with Todd, are they going to dare and try it with the third? How many times can you go see a set list that looks the fucking same? Here are some random dates of each year and I even added a few better ones.
2012 As Rising West

Imagine if they embraced the new stuff and pushed it out there or simply stayed with the name Rising West we might be seeing a set list that goes something like this.

As far as Queensryche tribute bands. I've never really heard of that many of them being around but I stumbled upon this one. These guys get my vote. Not bad at all. The band is called Mindcrime, singer reminds me of Blaze Bailey (the look)  ;D

80's Classic Rock / D-A-D (Disneyland After Dark)
« on: December 08, 2017, 07:37:27 PM »
D-A-D originally formed as Disneyland After Dark (the band shortened their name to D-A-D after catching some legal threats from, yep, Disneyland) is a Danish rock band active since 1982 and still going. The bands original lineup consisted of singer Jesper Binzer, his brother Jacob Binzer (guitar), Stig Peterson (bass) and Peter Lundholm Jensen (drums). Laust Sonne replaced Jensen on drums in 1999. They released their debut album in 1986 "Call of the wild".  The bands international breakthrough came with the 1989 album "No fuel left for the pilgrims" with Sleeping the day away getting a good amount of airplay. The band never really succeeded at any major breakthrough in the US market so they mainly concentrated their efforts in Europe and enjoyed some good success. They have released eleven studio albums along with three live albums.

90's to present Heavy Metal Bands / Crystal Pistol
« on: December 08, 2017, 06:47:37 PM »
This was a band out of Vancouver, Canada. They formed in 2001 and released an album in 2005. Pretty cool band that had potential but didn't really pick up any commercial success. The band was made up of Mik Ireland (vocals), Pinto (lead guitar), Brian Bresset (guitar), Greg Laikin (bass) and David Troutman (drums). Not sure if they are currently active or not.

90's to Present Classic Rock / Greta Van Fleet
« on: December 01, 2017, 09:13:38 PM »
Look out now, here comes the new millennium Led Zeppelin. These young kids got some major stage presence and swagger goin on. Much needed for rock music right now. I think this band has some pretty good potential. Great stuff.

They formed in 2012 out of Michigan with three brothers Josh (lead vocals), Jake (lead guitar) and Sam (bass) Kiszka, along with current drummer Danny Wagner who replaced original drummer Kyle Hauck in 2013. keep an eye on these guys major potential.

Been a hell of a World Series this year, actually playoffs in general. Once again we get a game 7. Been glued to this series. I'd like to see the Astros pull it off, but I guess the Dodgers have the best shot being home. Should be a great game tonight though.  8)

« on: October 26, 2017, 02:29:53 PM »
Demon was an early member of the new wave of British heavy metal movement. They initial started as a more hard rock and metal band and later incorporated some progressive metal elements  in their sound. The original lineup, which formed in 1979 consisted of Dave Hill (vocals), Mal Spooner (guitars), Les Hunt (lead guitar), Chris Ellis (bass) and John Wright (drums). Debut album Night of the Demon was released in 1981 and is a pretty solid album as is their second album The Unexpected Guest. After that the band changed up their sound some and leaned more towards progressive metal. Mal Spooner died in 1984.

The band initially split up in 1992, but regrouped in 2001 led by singer Dave Hill as the only original member and only member from the pre-2001 lineup they have continued to perform and record new music. They have released thirteen studio albums.

Someone Else? / Soundtrack albums
« on: September 19, 2017, 02:40:37 PM »
So, how about the best soundtrack albums. A lot of times they contain un released material from some good bands. As Rockox has pointed out in the Dangerous Toys thread the Shocker soundtrack has some really good hard rock/metal tracks.

Shocker Soundtrack
Iggy Pop/Megadeth/Bonfire/ Dangerous Toys among others

Another that comes to mind is Trick or Treat with Fastway doing the full soundtrack.

70's & 80's Heavy Metal bands / Exciter
« on: September 15, 2017, 02:29:16 PM »
Exciter, considered by many to be one of the first speed metal bands and major influence on thrash. The best of which to come out of Canada. The band was formed in Ottawa in 1978 with an obvious influence of Judas Priest. The band has undergone some lineup changes over the years but currently features three original members back in the lineup in Drummer/vocalist Dan Beehler (78-93, 14-present), guitarist John Ricci (78-85, 92-present) and bassist Allen James Johnson (78-88, 14-present). The band has released eleven studio albums since 1983, their latest released in 2010.

Very long standing band that has kind of flown under the radar and deserves to be mentioned up there with the best thrash and speed metal bands. Here is a good representation of their material.

70's & 80's Heavy Metal bands / Exodus
« on: September 15, 2017, 01:49:55 PM »
Exodus is another of the original thrash bands. Credited as a pioneer of the bay area thrash scene. Formed in 1979 in California. The initial lineup included Kirk Hammett of Metallica, who was with the band from 79-83. The band has gone through many lineup changes, too many to list, but in addition to Hammett other notable names that have passed through the bands lineup include singers Paul Baloff (who passed away in 2002), and Rob Dukes. Guitarist Rick Hunolt, and drummers Paul Bostaph and John Tempesta.

The band continues to tour and have released ten studio albums and our currently working on the follow up to 2014 album blood in, blood out.

The current lineup:
Tom Hunting- drums (79-89, 97-98, 01-05, 07-present)
Gary Holt- guitar (81-94, 97-98, 01-present)
Steve "zetro" Souza- vocals (86-93, 02-04, 14-present)
Jack Gibson- bass (97-98, 01-present)
Lee Altus- guitars (05-present)

here are some good ones from these guys.
