  1. GREAT WHITE Parts Ways With Singer TERRY ILOUS, Replaces Him With MITCH MALLOY July 9, 2018 25 Comments AddThis Sharing Buttons Share to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to PinterestPinterestShare to RedditRedditShare to MoreMore17 GREAT WHITE has parted ways with singer Terry Ilous and has replaced him with Mitch Malloy (pictured above with guitarist Mark Kendall). Malloy, a celebrated songwriter and artist now based in Nashville, takes the reins as only the third lead vocalist in GREAT WHITE's 36-year history. "Mitch is an incredible singer, artist, songwriter and engineer," GREAT WHITE lead guitarist Mark Kendall said. "We're beyond excited to stretch our musical muscles with a fresh, new take on GREAT WHITE's catalog of hits." He added: "Terry Ilous has been released to join his other projects. We wish him the best of luck and thank him for his run with GREAT WHITE." Malloy, who originally hails from Dickinson, North Dakota, charted his first solo single, "Anything At All" in 1992. His subsequent hits "Nobody Wins In This War" and "Our Love Will Never Die" also made Billboard's Top 100. Most recently he's been cranking out penned hits and producing clients for his Malloy Master Tracks studio. These clients include Taylor Swift, BOYS LIKE GIRLS, Kenny Loggins, Craig Morgan, Johnny Gates and many more. Malloy has been in this is this situation before. In 1996, VAN HALEN asked Malloy to take the reins as its singer. Although Malloy didn't take the gig, he further established his reputation as a universally respected frontman. He's thrilled to be a part of GREAT WHITE. He's not trying to be a "clone" of previous singers Jack Rusell and Ilous. "I have to represent this music honorably," Malloy said. "I respect what has come before me, and have to remind fans of where they were when they first heard these songs. I also have to be myself at the same time. When I first heard my own voice with GREAT WHITE's music, I knew something special was going on." GREAT WHITE guitarist and keyboardist Michael Lardie praised Malloy for his musical chops and reputation. "We had an immediate rapport with Mitch," Lardie said. "I'm positive the fans will embrace Mitch and continue to support GREAT WHITE. This music is bigger than any one person." "We're ready to rock with Mitch," drummer Audie Desbrow added. "2018 and beyond still has a lot in store for GREAT WHITE. Don't ever count us down and out. It feels like we're just getting started." GREAT WHITE continues to tour worldwide and in the last four years logged nearly 400 dates in several states and countries. The band celebrated numerous milestones that included several sold-out performances, a return to the Zurich, Switzerland's Rock Im Tal festival, the 10th anniversary of M3 Rock Festival and a handful of intimate, acoustic performances. In June 2017, GREAT WHITE reunited with its original producer, Michael Wagener on the thrilling "Full Circle". The nine-track album spawned the balls-to-the wall single "Big Time". And for the first time in its career, GREAT WHITE gave a peek behind the curtain to its fans with the accompanying DVD "The Making Of Full Circle".

  2. Great White's remaining members are tools. Mark Kendall actually complained to YouTube when I posted one of their songs from Full Circle on YouTube.
  3. Can you see the writing on the wall???....... The call........

  4. A new entry in my forgotten hard rock albums series. It didn't take long for me to dig this PA band. Being a Mid-Atlantic hard rock junkie, I waited and anticipated this album. And boy was I not disappointed. Bad Reputation, Find A Way, Play Dirty and Skin To Skin are all killers. The album did have a few fillers though but still an outstanding CD!! Official Video:

    KIX - "FUSE 30 REBLOWN" Release On Sept 21

Two-Disc Special Edition Features Never Release Demo Recordings. June 25, 2018 On the 30th Anniversary of their platinum album, Blow My Fuse, Maryland hard rock icons, KIX will release Fuse 30 Reblown – 30th Anniversary Special Edition two-disc set on September 21, 2018, exclusively on PledgeMusic, exactly 30 years after Blow My Fuse’s original September 19, 1988 release date. Fuse 30 Reblown is available for pre-order now through the band’s PledgeMusic store, where fans can also purchase special commemorative merchandise including signed copies of the album, t-shirts, pins, and beach towels. Fuse 30 Reblown Disc #1 features a raw and impactful remix by Beau Hill (Alice Cooper, Ratt, Warrant, KIX) of KIX’s Atlantic Records album Blow My Fuse, and a top-notch mastering job by Jay Frigoletto (Alice in Chains, Tesla). Never-before-released demos of all 10 tracks, recorded in the early to mid 1980’s, are on Disc #2 and prove how well-prepared KIX were prior to entering the studio to record their albums. The album Blow My Fuse features the group’s biggest hit, the power ballad, “Don’t Close Your Eyes,” which reached #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 in early 1989. The album achieved platinum sales and peaked at #46 on the Billboard Top 200, making it the band’s most successful of their 35-year career. “We are proud to be celebrating the 30-year anniversary of the biggest album of our lives,” says singer Steve Whiteman. “We went from clubs to arenas, a van to a tour bus, and from the U.S. to Japan and Europe. And 30 years later, our fans are still right here with us.” KIX gracefully eased back into the public consciousness in 2008. After sold out hometown gigs, the quintet hit the stage at Rocklahoma in front of over 20,000 people, venturing out of the Mid-Atlantic for the first time in 13 years. Delivering a triumphant set alongside Sammy Hagar and Alice Cooper, they left their mark on old and new fans alike. After capturing their fiery reunion on 2012’s Live in Baltimore CD & DVD, the members agreed to enter the studio once again. In 2014, KIX released their seventh full-length album, Rock Your Face Off (Loud & Proud Records) their first studio effort since 1995’s Show Business. The album debuted at #1 on Amazon’s “Hard Rock and Metal “chart, in the Top 50 on Billboard’s “Top 200 Albums” chart, #5 on the “Independent Albums “chart, #11 on the “Top Internet “chart, #17 on the “Top Rock Albums” chart, #27 on the “Indy/Small Chain Core Stores” chart and #33 on the “Physical” chart. KIX last released CAN’T STOP THE SHOW: THE RETURN OF KIX on October 21, 2016, a two-disc DVD/CD set that entered the Billboard Top Music Video Sales chart at #3, and rose to the #1 position, the band’s highest charting debut and first #1 ever in their 35-year history. The 71-minute film offered an in-depth look into KIX’s decision to record their first new album, 2014’s Rock Your Face Off, in almost 20 years.

    In two words: FUCK NO!
  10. I think this deserves it's own thread. Sounds pretty damn killer to me! http://www.frontiers.it/album/5409 ALBUM DETAIL As the revival of the classic ‘80s hard rock and heavy metal scene continues unabated here in the 21st century, one reunion has been at the top of the wishlist of many a fan for a long time: the songwriting combination of Tracii Guns and Philip Lewis under the L.A. Guns banner. What once seemed like a distant memory with no hope of returning has now come around and fans are about to be rewarded for keeping their fingers crossed and their hopes up. L.A. Guns never looked like the pretty poster boys that so many of their peers did, but more the band that you would be terrified to bump into an alley as they would likely be carrying switchblades and ready for a fight. But despite having many a song to back up that image, the band could also write powerful ballads (see the smash hit, “The Ballad Of Jayne” for Exhibit A of this argument) that showed there was some serious songwriting chops in the band. Those chops are on fully display on “The Missing Peace”, arguably one of the most vital and exciting releases in the band’s catalog. The story of how we got from the band’s powerful early years to here has already been well documented, so no need to rehash it. What’s important to know and understand is that the driving force of all those classic L.A. Guns songs, Tracii and Phil, is back and in a BIG way. Feeling inspired and excited like they did when they first started out, but with many years of wisdom and experience under their belts, “The Missing Peace” will surely please fans of the band’s classic albums (the self-titled debut, “Cocked And Loaded”, and “Hollywood Vampires”) as well as their widely heralded “comeback” albums (“Man In The Moon” and “Waking The Dead”). In fact, this album feels like the next logical step after the critically heralded “Waking The Dead” album and shows a band invigorated and ready to bash you over the head, as well as “wow” you with some epic, slower songs, proving you don’t always needs a semi-truck to run people over. TRACKLIST It’s All The Same To Me Speed A Drop Of Bleach Sticky Fingers Christine Baby Gotta Fever Kill It Or Die Don’t Bring A Knife To A Gunfight The Flood’s The Fault Of The Rain The Devil Made Me Do It The Missing Peace Gave It All Away LINEUP Philip Lewis – Vocals Tracii Guns – Guitars Johnny Martin – Bass Michael Grant – Guitar Shane Fitzgibbon - Drums https://youtu.be/2FN5HTSiOt4

    L.A. Guns - "The Missing Peace" (2017)

    I think both songs suck.
  12. Digging through some of my local ROX magazines from 1990-1995. ROX was a free monthly local music paper that included the surrounding DC, PA, and VA areas. Anybody (besides LVKix) heard of any of these killer bands from back in the day?? More to come if you guys like this stuff!

    Question For Dan

    Thank you for the info. This paper installed a paywall on their site a few years ago, and it basically chased off almost all the regular posters. By the time they lifted the paywall, basically only trolls remained. Very few regulars. So they had to be losing money. The printed newspaper is almost completely dead. Sad.

    Question For Dan

    I moderate a major newspaper's forums, which uses the same software as here. On July 2nd, they are permanently closing down this part of the website. I was just wondering how much does this type of forum cost per month. I'm just wondering if this was basically just a cost cutting move. Any info would be a great help.

  16. Don't know if this has been discussed or not. Apologize if it has. On Youtube, I stumbled across a newer channel called "Lost In Vegas". It was a Reaction/Review for Megadeth's "Holy Wars". Been hooked on their metal reactions since. Here are some of my favorites:

    Treat - Tunguska

    I like it plenty. I do agree it doesn't touch Coup De Grace or Ghost Of Graceland's best tracks. Let's hope there are better songs than this!

    H.E.A.T - Into The Great Unknown

    I hear a 4-Non Blondes "What's Going On?" rip-off personally. Don't like it.
  22. from multiple online sources: 30 years on from the release of The Final Countdown, EUROPEare bigger and better than they have ever been. Following on from the success of the 2015 release War Of Kings and the 30th anniversary recording at the Roundhouse in London, the new LP "Walk The Earth" is due for release on the 20th October 2017. Opening up with a barnstormer of a title track you know you are in for an exceptional ride. Tempest’s vocals are almost Gillan-esque in their delivery and this should fit nicely with their upcoming tour with the mighty Deep Purple. Norum’s guitar work is hot and heavy and his penchant for intricate guitar lines is clearly in evidence here on this record. For some this LP may take some listening to in order to really appreciate the production and songwriting, however the more you listen the more you get from the album and as such this is what makes the recording a winner. Sure, there are the catchy melodic tunes as well like “Election Day” and the out and out riff driven powerhouse tracks such as “Haze”, but somehow there is a lot more to this record. At times it’s dark, moody and melancholic. The kind of records that makes you listen, and then listen again. This is what makes it such a good recording. Europe really are at the top of their game here and long may it continue, if this album is anything to go by we are in for a real treat as the band continues to develop. HIGHLY Recommended 01 - Walk The Earth 02 - The Siege 03 - Kingdom United 04 - Pictures 05 - Election Day 06 - Wolves 07 - Gto 08 - Haze 09 - Whenever You're Ready 10 - Turn To Dust Joey Tempest – lead vocals John Norum – guitars John Leven – bass Mic Michaeli – keyboards Ian Haugland – drums PRE ORDER: www.amazon.co.uk/Walk-Earth-Special-1DVD-Digi-book/dp/B07584R6XX And the OFFICIAL VIDEO:
