Saw them a couple of years ago. It was a GREAT show!!!!

I like them a lot too - and it's not for the Satanist Vaudeville image stuff at all (which I find mildly amusing, but also limiting). What I really dig about them is their melodic sense in their music - it reminds me big time of Blue Ă–yster Cult which I loved for exactly the same trait (and not for their laser shows or songs about giant lizards). But whenever I hum along to "come together - together as one - come together - for Lucifer's son", Edith goes: "How old are you again?"  :mrgreen:

Boogie Van Les Pauls - obviously a ploy to make up in volume what they loose in discounted pricing.

(Cough, cough...)

They may actually sell one of each color before deciding it's not their salvation.

I'm shameless - I just bought Cristopher Cross' last CD and loads of Little River Band. I've always admired AOR pop/Yacht Rock because I could never sound that smooth even if I tried. It's a very American form of music, but not easily replicated.

German band "Lake" were proponents of a Doobie Brothers sound:



And likewise Krautsters "Tokyo" (from Frankfurt actually, they were all sessioneers from the local studios) never denied that Toto was their one and all, you expect Bobby Kimball to take over any minute:



"Wallenstein", once an angular keyboard trio, even became this here  :mrgreen: :



Crucify me, I like that kind of stuff.  Which doesn't mean that I can't enjoy rawer or more off the wall type music too.

Take it easy on that slow ride. And thanks for that great moustache.

Au Mann.  :-\ :-\ :-\

I had noticed on the last few gigs I saw how he is getting frailer and frailer and leaving more and more of the lead guitar work to new kid Richie Faulkner - I thought ok, he might not have his former dexterity anymore (Tipton is vastly underrated for his solos) and he's played those lead breaks often enough in the last four decades and lets "the kid" have a try at them -, but this is crushing.

Halford is the voice of Priest, but Tipton was the heart and brain. Without him (he joined shortly before their debut album), they would have never left that rehearsal space in Birmingham.

Didn't the early Bachbirds have a maple neck?

Maybe the Series I did. I don't think the thin Series II or later IIIs had maple necks.

Does that mean Epiphone goes down with them? Most of their instruments are made in Japan, Korea and China?

And the new Thunderbird Vintage Pros are made in Indonesia!

Maybe Rob needs to start work on an Epiphone Bass Book!
