The Bombers – Aussie Hard Rock

The Bombers – Aussie Hard Rock

Actually, Aussie hard rock is a little misleading as The Bombers featured Status Quo’s rhythm section as the basis and starting point of this band. Yes, they were formed in Sydney but basically, the band featured British stalwarts  Alan Lancaster and John Coughlin from the mighty Quo.… Read the rest

Rush – Hemispheres 40th Anniversary

Rush – Hemispheres 40th Anniversary

Rush have released 1978’s Hemispheres in various 40th Anniversary editions. Hemispheres contained a lot of Rush classic tracks that were still performed live even on their last tour.

Men At Work Reform and Tour

Men At Work Reform and Tour

To be perfectly honest, I never know if this is a good thing or a bad thing. I have seen many reformations come and go and my opinion is its mostly bad. Generally, I believe a band has a moment, a ‘magic’ time if you like, where everything just clicks and is on fire.… Read the rest

The Rolling Stones Tease US Tour

The Rolling Stones Tease US Tour

There have been murmurings from the Rolling Stones world about a 2019 US tour! Although they are pushing 80 years old, they can still rock and fill a stadium, which is an amazing feat.

Also in Rolling Stones news, they have finally released the full video of their Voodoo Lounge tour of 1994/95.… Read the rest

Marillion 2 Bands in One

Marillion 2 Bands in One

I love Marillion. Their back catalog is huge and if you have just discovered them then you are in for a treat….but what Marillion. A lot of Marillion fans have split the band in two…..Marillion Fish era and current Marillion.
I personally hate the split and have no intention of driving that spike.… Read the rest

Live

Live

A band regularly described as Alt/Rock, for me, ‘Live’ certainly fit the Classic Rock mold. Reunited with original singer Ed Kowalczyk in 2016 and currently touring again they have just released a new song called ‘Love Lounge’ and its a shredder.… Read the rest

Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd

What is there to say about Pink Floyd. Their history is littered with stories of madness, nasty financial breakups, drug-induced psychedelia, legal actions and rock excess lifestyles of the gargantuan size. Most bands would have crumbled early if they had to endure the legal nightmares The Floyd put themselves through and yet out of it all, through the darkness, came some of the most incredible music albums of our time.… Read the rest
