End Of Line is at it once again, pleading for a 35th-anniversary edition of The Warning.   ::)

On 1/14/19 Setzer posted the following:

"Earlier today I read an old article, claiming the band weren't happy with it, and wanted it re-mixed."

Guess who didn't believe him?  ::)... :D

"Care to share it? I will modify the blog and the site's chapter on the record to state what the band may have said if you have a link to it."

Here's how Rustvold justifies his belief that he's correct, and that Setzer isn't--- without directly stating it.  C:-)

Again, from 1/14/19:

"Also, even if that's what they claim in an article, remember, it was 1984, their first record, and probably told not to rock the boat. What I was told, that they were crushed about it, came from a crew member, who was there with them when they got the news.

But honestly, who the hell knows what's actually true at this point? The crew member was dead on about the track listing being rearranged, so it stands to reason that he was right about the mix too."

:D... ::)

Of course, there's absolutely no mention of who the "crew member" is who told EOL that unproven tale. Furthermore, the quote in the piece was about the mix, NOT the track listing.

I've learned over the years that a credible journalist would tell us the name of the roadie he spoke to, as well as the date and time this revelation took place.

On the other hand, we have to consider who's saying this. His overtold story is likely a figment of his imagination.
  :o... >:D

I believe Setzer is correct. Good work sir!   :o... C:-)

One year after the death of Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan, her band mates have announced their final album In the End, a collection of songs O’Riordan worked on prior to her January 15th, 2018 death. The Cranberries also shared In the End‘s first single, the catchy “All Over Now.”

“I can’t think of a more fitting way to commemorate the first anniversary of Dolores’ passing and to celebrate her life than to announce to the world the release of her final album with the band,” Eileen O’Riordan, Dolores’ mother, said in a statement.

QUEENSRYCHE: / Re: The Verdict (March 1, 2019) Album Discussion

(Shadow Walker: Nice to see you reading the thread, feel free to post your thoughts on the new songs dude, your certainly welcome to participate)  8)

Since you asked, neither song is doing much for me. I was pretty high on the TLT line-up when they hit the road with the Return To History tour (one of those shows is in my all time top five Queensryche shows I have attended) but it has been the law of diminishing returns since then. Of the first two albums this line up has released, A sum total of one song has stuck with me (In This Light). The albums have had no staying power and part of that is how the band has structured the live shows since TLT has joined. Gone are the two-hour shows that featured at least five or more songs from the current album being promoted. They just don't put the emphasis on new material the way the band did on every album tour up to DTC. And when the band doesn't get into it, my interest tends to follow.

That being said, the absence of SRock on drums is very noticeable on these new songs. The songs lack his unique groove. His playing is very nuanced and you really don't think about it too much until he is not there. Casey Grillo, as good as he has been, is not SRock and it shows in the live performance. Same with TLT on these two studio tracks. I could have made a legit case for Queensryche keeping the name up until now.

What I have heard from The Verdict so far is not what I would consider Queensryche. Neither song has hooked me in a way that has made me want to buy the tracks individually as I wait for the album's release. They just don't capture my imagination. Bland. Generic. No memorable hooks. And it could be my bias in finding the live shows to be enjoyable in the moment but forgettable once the final shows come to an end. The only reason why I plan on taking in two shows on this tour is because Fates Warning is on the bill (though I am worried FW will be cut short due to those shows being two of the three with a third act). While I hope to be pleasantly surprised by something on the rest of the album (and yes, I will buy it when it gets released to be ready for the tour just in case they actually decide to promote  the new album) to give me a reason to be excited about the band again, given my long history and the role it has played in forming some lasting friendships, not much is keeping me in the fold these days and neither song sparked any renewal of interest.

Discovered by songwriter Richard Berry, King began her recording career in 1956 with Little Clydie and the Teens; before she was a member of Ray Charles' Raelettes for three years and contributed to early 1960s recordings by producer Phil Spector.

Daryl Frank Dragon (August 27, 1942 – January 2, 2019) was an American musician and songwriter, known as Captain from the pop musical duo Captain & Tennille with his then-wife, Toni Tennille.

Born into a musical family, Dragon was the son of Eloise (Rawitzer) and conductor, composer, and arranger Carmen Dragon, and the elder brother of Dennis Dragon, a member of the 1960s pop combo The Dragons and the 1980s surf band the Surf Punks.  His godfather was actor and comedian Danny Thomas.

Dragon's familiar image and stage name came from his time as a keyboard player with The Beach Boys from 1967 to 1972. Beach Boys lead singer Mike Love gave him the nickname "Captain Keyboard", and it stuck; Dragon began wearing a nautical captain's hat to go along with the name. As Captain in Captain & Tennille, Dragon was frequently silent and a man of very few words, playing a foil to his outgoing, vivacious wife, Toni Tennille.

The Who have announced the release of their first album of new material in thirteen years in addition to a 2019 symphonic tour. Should be interesting to see what new material they come up with.
