Firehouse's first 2 albums rank in my top 20 CDs, so this poll was easy for me. I like Dokken too, but nothing they did ever compared to songs like "Rock on the Radio," "All She Wrote," "When I Look Into Your Eyes," "Sleeping With You," etc. I also much prefer CJ's vocals to Don's.

 

As for Zeppelin...take the first letter of their name, repeat it a whole bunch of times, and you get the effect they have on me (Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz...).

Not a huge Zep fan (in fact not much by them I really like) and I prefer Firehouse but I cannot bring myself to vote for anyone else but Zep ... the others are small time bands next to them....sorry!

I don't like Zeppelin and Dokken isn't that great to me either. I voted for Firehouse. I have been listening to them for the past week and their first album is one of my favorite albums of all time. I couldn't vote any other way. It just wouldn't be right.

Don't you mean ZEPPELIN? (Yes that sound you just heard was the return of the typo nazi)

 

 

 

My vote goes to Dokken, but I do love all 3 bands.

What's amazing to me is that Zep has ONLY 10 votes. They should be dominating this one, IMO.

Only based on reputation, history and a sense of what's "right" alone. If one looks at the three bands as individual contributors to music... regardless of what influence they may have had or where they were influenced from, IMO Zeppelin are clearly the weakest band on this list. It's just a shame all the other bullshit gets brought into the argument and many feel it's the right choice, to vote for Zeppelin because they should. :(

If you look at what Led Zeppelin have contributed to music, what influence they have had on others AND what their individual members have contributed, then they still win by a mile compared to the other 2

Hey Jez, I see what you're saying, mate, but for me none of that matters remotely and it's all about the music and the songs on the table. And IMO, Firehouse and Dokken's songs are 100 times better than anything Zeppelin ever did.

"the weakest band on this list"..HUH!!

 

Well not everyone is a fan of Led Zep...that's cool...that's life..but for me who grew up listening to them...impatiently waiting for the next release.....cursing for a month straight when they disbanded...they are the greatest hard rock band in history. Period. Of course I understand that people who were born in the following generations have other tastes...after all look at the teenagers of today who listen to nu-metal and Spears shit ,who would not be caught dead listening to 80s and 90s music. That's just how it works. But the bottom line for me is I can't understand how anyone with an open mind can sit down and listen to Led Zep and not be blown away...and yes I do like the other bands in this poll but I'm afraid they do not compare well to the gods...

 

P.S. there's no reason to read between the lines and assume that I think that anyone who is not a Led Zep fan should clean the crap out of their ears...honestly!.. :nyanya:

Exactly - The bottom line is that it is about the music. If you think that Firehouse and Dokken songs are 100x better than much of the Led Zepp catlogue, then I have no probs with that whatsoever - I'll send you some cotton buds over to Ozz mate :lol:

I went with Led Zep. The others bands are good, but nothing comparising to the Hard Rock Godfathers.

    • Edvard Munch's favourite band.
    • Debut album 'Portraits' out May 31.   From Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group:   The band was founded a decade ago under the name ”Alex Mari & The Lovers”, with the aim of writing original material. Meanwhile, in order to create good chemistry between the members, the group began playing together on several live shows, performing cover songs of legendary international artists just like Queen, Toto, Police and AC/DC.   After few line-up changes, the band was finalized with three members: Alex Mari  (Michele Luppi Band, Barock Project, Ophiura, plus guest appearances as studio backing vocalist with Rhapsody of Fire) on vocals, Gianluca Pisana on drums and backing vocals, and Sebastiano Barbirato on guitar and backing vocals. For their debut album, they established their new identity with the name, Night Pleasure Hotel.   The first studio chapter of this very promising trio offers a perfect slice of classic American AOR, reminiscent of Survivor (Bickler era), Foreigner, Prism and Toto. The album features contributions from talented special guest stars –  Michele Luppi (Whitesnake), Luca Zabbini (Barock Project, PFM), Paolo Caridi (Ellefson-Soto, Reb Beach, Geoff Tate, Krell), Gianluca Tagliavini (PFM), Roberto Galli (Michele Luppi’s Heaven, Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire) and Iarin Munari (Red Canzian, Roberto Vecchioni, Paolo Vallesi).   Night Pleasure Hotel are sure to become one of the best newcomers of the current melodic rock scene, thanks to their infectious sound, mixed and mastered by Roberto Priori (Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire, Raintimes, StreetLore).   The release of ”Portraits” is scheduled for May 31, 2024 via Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group. The CD booklet features introductory liner notes written by Samuele Mannini (Melodicrock.it), while cover art and CD graphics have been developed by Aeglos Art (Wheels Of Fire, Platens, StreetLore, Raintimes, Room Experience, Nightblaze).    The first single of the album, ”Just This Once”, will be launched with an official video on March 28, 2024.   Tracklist:   01. Niko 02. Just This Once 03. We Say Goodbye 04. Walking Through The Horizon 05. You And I 06. Sweet Melodies Of Rain 07. Shivers 08. What I Feel 09. Julia  10. Suddenly 11. For You 12. Quella Sera (Bonus Track)   Night Pleasure Hotel is:   Alex Mari: Lead Vocals, Backing Vocals, Bass, Guitar, Keyboards Sebastiano Barbirato: Guitar, Bass, Backing vocals Gianluca Pisana: Drums, Piano, Backing Vocals
    • Queen Shrike = Queensryche 👍
    • and the new Gunship cd maybe not so much AOR but damn good stuff
    • I've enjoyed pretty much all of their output thus far..inc this  
    • First I've heard of these guys.  A bit of a Danny Wilde vibe on vocals for me.  I like it.
    • New song 'Give The Night Away'.    
    • I can't remember the ins and outs of it, but last year he put up a tweet about how anyone who does cover songs is unoriginal and have no talent, and he would rather listen to the original. I have no issue with the second part of his statement as that is all down to personal taste, but for him to call out bands as unoriginal and lacking talent when bands he listens to have done covers is quite laughable. Every time he posts shit like that I reply and he always ignores me as he knows he is chatting shit. He does it with wrestling as well. Called someone out for instulting a woman wrestler, and saying it's unacceptable to insult wrestlers like that. Pointed out he always calls Brock Lesnar a gorilla and he he should practice what he preaches .. ignored again As I say, always has to pretend he knows everything, but always gets caught out.
