QUEENSRYCHE: / Spys4Darwin/Chris DeGarmo
« on: January 21, 2020, 10:53:35 PM »
Was giving this a fresh listen the other day after having not heard it in quite a while. Spys4Darwin was the short lived "supergroup" project featuring Chris DeGarmo (Queensryche), Sean Kinney and Mike Inez (Alice in Chains) and Vin Dombroski (Sponge). This project only was active during 2001-2002 and produced just one six song ep titled Microfish, which was only released on the bands own label and available through the band's website. in 2008 the ep became available through
The band only ever played one live show that I've seen noted anywhere, that was KNDD's Endfest 10 august 4, 2001.

So not sure whether DeGarmo performed at this show. For anyone who wants to listen through and see if he is on this and gets introduced here it is.

90's to present Heavy Metal Bands / Slipknot
« on: December 16, 2019, 10:08:34 PM »
Slipknot is an American heavy metal band from Des Moines, Iowa. The band was founded in 1995 by percussionist Shawn Crahan, drummer Joey Jordison and bassist Paul Gray. After several lineup changes in its early years, the band settled on nine members for more than a decade: Crahan, Jordison, Gray, Craig Jones, Mick Thomson, Corey Taylor, Sid Wilson, Chris Fehn, and Jim Root. Gray died on May 24, 2010, and was replaced during 2011–2014 by guitarist Donnie Steele. Jordison was dismissed from the band on December 12, 2013. Steele left during the recording sessions for .5: The Gray Chapter. The band found replacements in Alessandro Venturella on bass and Jay Weinberg on drums. After the departure of Jordison, as of December 2013 the only founding member in the current lineup is percussionist Crahan. Fehn was also dismissed from the band in March of 2019 prior to the writing of the We Are Not Your Kind album.

Slipknot is well known for its attention-grabbing image, aggressive style of music, and energetic and chaotic live shows.[1][2] The band rapidly rose to fame following the release of their eponymous debut album in 1999. The 2001 follow-up album, Iowa, although darker in tone, made the band more popular. After a brief hiatus, Slipknot returned in 2004 with Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses), before going on another hiatus and returning in 2008 with its fourth album, All Hope Is Gone, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart. After another long hiatus, Slipknot released its fifth studio album, .5: The Gray Chapter, in 2014. Their sixth studio album, We Are Not Your Kind, was released on August 9, 2019.[3] The band has released two live albums titled 9.0: Live and Day of the Gusano: Live in Mexico, a compilation album titled Antennas to Hell, and five live DVDs. The band has sold 30 million records worldwide.[4]

The Guitar Gods / Bernie Torme
« on: June 15, 2019, 01:36:58 AM »
Bernie Torme was probably mostly known in the US for his brief stint with Ozzy filling in to complete the rescheduled dates of the tour following the untimely death of Randy Rhoads in 1982, which lasted only a handful of shows before he opted out and was replaced by Brad Gillis who finished the tour. He was in a band Scrapyard in the early seventies, following that he formed his own Bernie Torme band before joining Ian Gillan's band Gillan that Gillan had formed following his initial departure from Deep Purple. Bernie played with Gillan from 1979-1981 and was on Gillan's most popular albums. He then went on to play with Atomic Rooster in 1983 before forming Torme with Phil Lewis (LA Guns) on vocals. He then continued a solo career simply as Bernie Torme from the mid nineties until his death in March of this year at age 66. He wasn't a good fit for the Ozzy gig and those shows were not well received or regarded but he was a damn good guitar player.

QUEENSRYCHE: / Operation Mindcrime/ Geoff Tate Live performances 2019
« on: February 16, 2019, 02:13:00 AM »
A new year and Operation Mindcrime is still doing the "Operation Mindcrime anniversary Tour" and I'm sure Geoff Tate will be doing some other performances with the band this year along with participating in Anatasia's tour.

So here we have a full show of Operation Mindcrime from this week on February 14, 2019 in Athens Greece. The show cuts in after missing the first three minutes.

I don't hear any vast improvement, it's ok. It is basically comparable to last years shows and there are plenty of weak spots to be found.

90's to present Heavy Metal Bands / Last in Line
« on: January 19, 2019, 02:37:15 AM »
Last in Line is about to release their sophomore album II. The band features Dio band alumni Vivian Campbell and Vinny Appice, along with singer Andrew Freeman and Phil Soussan (ex Ozzy bassist) who replaced original bassist and another former Dio bandmate Jimmy Bain who fell ill and passed away in 2016 a month before the band's debut album Heavy Crown was released.

The first two songs released from the upcoming album II
Year of the gun (from the new album II)
Both pretty strong songs so far, definitely interested to hear the rest.

Stand up and shout/ Straight through the heart live Teaneck NJ 3/24/17

The End Machine is Dokken's classic lineup minus Don and substituting him with current Warrant singer Robert Mason. We all know Don Dokken's range has suffered immensely, so this should be a pretty interesting offering, this band playing with a better caliber (at this point) singer. First song released "Alive Today" is pretty decent I think.

Alive Today

70's & 80's Heavy Metal bands / Rough Cutt
« on: October 03, 2018, 09:42:53 PM »
LA California metal band formed in 1981, originally consisting of Paul Shortino (vocals), Dave Alford (drums), Jake E Lee (guitar), Claude Schnell (keyboards), and Joey Cristofanilli. Craig Goldy replaced Jake E Lee for a time prior to the release of the bands first release. The band only released two studio albums. Two songs with Jake E Lee were released on a compilation album of LA's Hottest Unsigned Rock Bands, those songs were "A little kindness" and "Used and abused". One other song featuring Goldy was released on the compilation album KLOS 95 1/2: Rock to riches, that track was "Try a little harder".

With the lineup of Paul Shortino (vocals), Amir Derakh (guitar), Chris Hager (guitar), Matt Thorr (bass), and Dave Alford (drums) the band released their debut album in 1985. This lineup would also release their second and last album Wants You in 1986. Rough Cutt Live was released in 1996 featuring three studio tracks. They appeared on the Super Rock 85 festival vhs recording which featured four of their songs along with performances by Dio and Foreigner. Shortino left the band following Japan tour dates in late 1986 and he then replaced Kevin DuBrow in a Quiet Riot lineup which released one album. Rough Cutt tried to briefly continue with new vocalist Parramore McCarty (formerly of Warrior) before disbanding.

Shortino reformed Rough Cutt in 2000 with a new lineup that featured guitarist Jimmy Crespo (Aerosmith), Sean McNabb (Quiet Riot) on bass, James Garrett on keyboards, and John Homan (drums). This lineup released an album "Sacred Place" in 2002 under the name Paul Shortino's The Cutt, the album featured guest appearances by Brad Gillis, Carlos Cavazo, Howard Leese, and Chuck Wright.

The classic lineup from the first two albums, having reunited once before for a one off show in 2002 in Hollywood, reunited once more in 2016 performing some shows and they played the 2018 Monsters of Rock cruise.

The song they did with Craig Goldy, but I believe this is the pre debut album demo recorded by the classic lineup and released on the anthology cd.

80's Classic Rock / Coney Hatch
« on: September 28, 2018, 08:49:49 PM »
Canadian hard rock band that released three albums in the eighties. Then reformed sporadically over the years for shows and released a fourth album in 2013. Led by guitarist/vocalist Carl Dixon (who also went on to play in April wine and The Guess Who) along with lead vocalist/bassist Andy Curran, guitarist Steve Shelski and Dave Ketchum. 

Interesting fact, James LaBrie of Dream Theatre was a brief member of the band when they tried to formulate a new lineup without Dixon in 1986. LaBrie recorded demo tapes with the band and performed several months of live shows around the Ontario area but the lineup was short lived due to the record company's disapproval of the lineup, I assume by that they meant LaBrie's vocals. They then tried another lineup with a different singer Phil Naro, which also was short lived.

Supershow (later with the subtitle "The Last Great Jam of the 60's!") is a music documentary film made in 1969 directed by John Crome and produced by Tom Parkinson.

This film was intended to be Britain's first music 'super session', with several famous blues, jazz and rock artists of the time coming together to be filmed whilst performing. The project was instigated by the Colour Tel film company, the recent credits of which included The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus and Jimi Hendrix at Royal Albert Hall.[1]

Filming took place over a two-day period in March 1969 in a disused linoleum factory at Staines, England. Artists who were filmed on 25 March included Led Zeppelin, Buddy Guy, Jack Bruce, Buddy Miles, Dick Heckstall-Smith and Chris Mercer. Those filmed on 26 March included Eric Clapton, Jon Hiseman's Colosseum, Buddy Guy, Roland Kirk and Stephen Stills. This project also marks one of the rare film appearances of Glenn Ross Campbell and The Misunderstood. Allegedly Jimi Hendrix was due to appear but missed the plane from New York City.[1]

The whole project was planned with great secrecy and filming went ahead at a reputed cost of £100 per minute.[1]

The film received a limited run in London, premiering at the Lyceum Theatre in November 1969. It later emerged as an official video release by Virgin Vision in 1986.[1]

Footage of Led Zeppelin's performance of the song "Dazed and Confused" which was originally filmed for Supershow later appeared on the Led Zeppelin DVD in 2003.

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.

Where dreams go to die
Open road
Roads to madness
Eye 9
Jet City Woman
Walk in the shadows
Take hold of the flame
Spreading the disease

QUEENSRYCHE: / Queensryche Tribute Bands

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
