    lyrics help

    Thanks, this is one of the few places I can use my recollections about 80's & 90's hard rock. If I can help someone out a bit all the better.

    EUROPE - "Walk The Earth" (2017)

    Yeah, PIP the song is probably my favorite of theirs, so I was happy to hear that. I guess it's hard for them to go back and play a setlist they were playing 10 or 15 years ago (that time is probably smack bang in the timeframe when they were split up) Personally I would have loved to have heard about Joey playing solo stuff in a small pub the following night. that would have been killer.

    Hardcore Superstar - Have Mercy On Me

    We're just going to Phuket for a week. Couple of my kids will be there then also, but we'll mostly avoid them I've been a couple of times before so there is less need to get out and see everything. Forced sitting on the beach or by the pool. I travel a lot for work overseas, so this is the first really relaxing break for a while. Although I'll be looking at some work stuff in my time there anyway.Timing was that late last year Jetstar has a deal on which made it less than $300 return each, so we just picked a date. We're lucky as we are self employed we can travel when we like which we probably don't appreciate enough. I was actually talking about Philippines as an option for something next year and apparently there is a big crackdown on drugs there which is kinda dangerous. I don't watch the news anymore so I know little about that. usually a storm in a teacup though I find.

    Hardcore Superstar - Have Mercy On Me

    Nice. Where are you going in Thailand? We're heading up to a similar part of the world - up to the Phillipines, on islands around Cebu. Also heading out on the 14th. Is the timing purposeful for you too, to escape that little bit of our shitty winter?

    EUROPE - "Walk The Earth" (2017)

    Nice. Thanks heaps for the rundown and pics. Interesting setlist. Definitely less songs that I'd like to hear than ones I'd rather not hear. Good sportsmanship for them to do such a long set too. I would love to see the stuff from OOTW & PIP but it looks like they were few and far between.
  10. Yep. The 'Gravity' EP is my favourite from them, and the most rock orientated one. 'In Our Bones' is more along this real pop rock kind of route, but still a nice album.

    VEGA - Only Human

    Most (hard) rock albums since about 1986 or so have a great drum sound... except Vega's last two. Few of my faves are that Firehouse album, Ratt's 'Detonator' and Treat's 'Organized Crime'... amongst a million others.

    What's a spinnin' in your CD player?

    AC/DC - Highway To Hell.

    Creye - s/t

    New track sounds good but I prefer Alexander on vocals. I'll compare both versions of Straight To The Top when this album is released.

    Every time I listen to Firehouse I ask, "Why can't all drums sound like this?" ;}

    Black Stone Cherry - White Trash Millionaire

    I love between the devil and the deep blue sea , like the debut and the follow up , like parts of the last album and absolutely hate the new one , they have gone full on blues rock it would seem which is not for me , great band live though
  22. Are their albums any good?
  23. Gotthardline

    VEGA - Only Human

    on the subject of Blessthefall , I absolutely love that new album
  24. Gotthardline

    Pop Evil - Waking Lions

    Birds of prey is my pick from the album , like be legendary too and don't mind a few others

    EUROPE - "Walk The Earth" (2017)

    It was their first ever tour of Australia which is weird in itself. $100 is pretty steep but I guess normal as it ain't cheap to get over here. Anyway, it was a fairly basic show. Big backdrop curtain, and that was the only stage prop. All dressed in black, no wardrobe changes etc. Good long show overall. 2 x 1 hour sets and the venue enabled a good view from anywhere. Joey took time to walk through the crowd during Superstitious which I guess is appropriate in that song (not worried about crazy fans) A couple of crowd singalongs which weren't too long so that was ok Other than that they were a fairly basic set up "stripped down" if you like I kinda had warped expectations having seen the old Final Countdown etc film clips with fireworks etc As for the setlist Walk the Earth The Siege Rock the Night (With snippet of ”Whole Lotta Rosie” by AC/DC) Scream of Anger Danger on the Track Firebox Sign of the Times Vasastan Girl From Lebanon Open Your Heart War of Kings Heart of Stone Days of Rock 'n' Roll Superstitious Second Set Ready or Not Last Look at Eden Hole in My Pocket Seven Doors Hotel Carrie Turn to Dust Drum Solo Stormwind Prisoners in Paradise GTO Let the Good Times Rock Encore: Cherokee The Final Countdown Missing songs for me I'll Cry For You Just The Beginning - would have thought that this would have been the perfect song to end set 1... Halfway To Heaven Talk To Me On Broken Wings Always The Pretenders New Love In Town Bag Of Bones I know everyone has a different opinion, but I'm not sure the crowd as a whole really appreciated most of the newer stuff. They missed quite a few singles which was a bit weird given their first tour of Oz. (almost as weird a Cheap Trick not playing The Flame when I saw them) But overall it was a good show. I would have regretted not seeing it. Not as much as I regret missing the Dr Feelgood tour, but still regretted it I guess.
