Re: New Ace record - Is it really him........?????

When is Steve Brown gonna put out solo stuff or do a completely original project? Or does he wanna play some clubs doing Surrender with a clean electric guitar? Put some new stuff out and be a rocker for real. Not sure if you consider 40 Ft. Ringo an original project, but if you haven't heard it th...

Re: the new Mick Mars album?

I like it overall, but it is not at all what I was expecting. As a Jacob Bunton / Paul Taylor collaboration I give it an 8. As a Mick Mars solo album maybe a 6 at best

Re: Who was the most important member of Skid Row?

Sebastian was Skid Row to many, with the others being replaceable

The real answer, though, is probably Snake, as his connection to Jon BJ was what got the producer, label, tour, and financial support to put them over

Re: Has anyone got any more of those facts?

Chef LaBar beat out Snake Sabo for the spot in Cinderella. Richie Sambora beat out Snake Sabo in Bon Jovi. Sabo was apparently the original guitarist (or an early one) before Richie replaced him. Anyone know the story - was it a label choice? Did Jon decide? Other? How would Bon Jovi have done with...

Re: David Lee Roth, Cinderella, Extreme Tour 1991

Caught the show at Blossom. Hair metal still sold well in Ohio in 1991, and at least the pavilion was full (lawn may have been papered).

Agreed, although I forgot they made a video for it. Seems like all the other videos from the debut were in higher rotation even though Mad About You didn't chart

Re: New Mick Mars Today - What is Your Plan?

A decent song - though not quite what I was expecting. Agreed that the solo was somewhat underwhelming

As an aside - why the hate for Bunton? He is a decent enough singer - I liked the Adler disc and his earlier bands were enjoyable. He was cool when I met him.

Re: What's your take on Feels So Good?

Hagar era sucks except for like a dozen songs. You could make one great album out of four. And even then it wouldn’t be as good as vh1, 1984, vh2 or Fair Warning. To be fair, the Roth era was all about guitars, swagger, and party attitude - which made it great - but the songs themselves without tha...

Saw them headline an outdoor festival in the Midwest earlier this year. The guitar sound was massive! Robin sounded great but his voice started faltering about 2/3 of the way through- wonder if that has anything to do with it?

Unfortunately I'm not far behind. I did the old guy package and got club level seats at SoFi and balcony for Dangerous Toys. If I leave my contacts out the band and the girls look just like 1989
