Joel Ellis accuses Jon Bon Jovi of stealing his song!

Recommended Posts

atleast Bon Jovi's CDs all sound different! country or not, they havent been playing the same, galloping riffs for the last 30 years.

 

But Maiden invented that sound so they can play it all they want.

And all of Maiden albums don't sound the same. Listen to them all and get back to me.

 

all the singles do though...

 

"Aces High" sounds like "Run to the Hills"? In what universe?

"Can I Play with Madness" sounds like "Wicker Man"? I don't think so.

Yes some of their songs do sound similar but that's why they call it a "Signature Sound". :whistle:

 

maybe, i call it cashing in on what worked to make more hits, reusing the same old formula...

 

still, im theone that lieks Lost Highway because it sounds so different to their earlier stuff....so ill always take diversity over signature sound personally...

 

Cashing in? You do realise that Iron Maiden has never had a real hit single, well at least outside of the UK.

Besides "Run to Hills", which is the only song that radio ever plays, Maiden has hardly had any radio play in the US. All of their videos were only played on Headbangers Ball back in the day and not during daylight hours.

But they still sold gold and platinum in the US because of how awesome they are live, which is what makes a great band a great band. And for the record Maiden has never written or recorded an album in Nashville. :whistle:

 

 

Even Pantera went country at one stage didn't they... with Cowboys From Hell

 

Whatever the opposite of Country is that's what Cowboys from Hell was/is.

Dime & Vinnie did a project with David Allen Cole that was a kind of a strange mixture of Sothern Rock, Metal and Country. But they didn't call it Pantera, thank God. It was Rebel Meets Rebel.

Back to topic.... so I wonder if Joel is gonna post that track

 

Topic? What topic?

 

Oh yeah, Joel got his song stolen from Jon and Richie.

Yup that'd be nice if he did post it for the fans to see how close it does sound to what Jovi did.

Maybe if he'd recorded it on TDK he wouldn't be having this issue.

im actually kinda interested in wether or not JBJ did rip off this guys song....when every threadlike this turns into a Bon Jovi pisstake it gets tiresome..

 

do you guys not realise that this site is primarily about Hair Metal? a style that Bon Jovi were very well known for in the 80s....they are the only decentband of our genre that you guys constantly take the piss out of, just because theyve released a couple of crap albums lately..

 

well so have Europe, Poison and Warrant, you dont take the piss out of themEVERY time theyre mentioned though, do you?

 

ok, maybe you do on the Poison one

 

'A couple of crap albums lately' is pushing it a little!! - try Haven't done a really decent album since 'New Jersey' 20 years ago. That fits a little better I think.

 

 

Maybe thats when the scene changed and grunge and altenative entered the picture. They weren't able to rip off any more up and coming artist so they had to actually try and write their own music. :loser:

I may as well mention that 'Keep the faith' (1993) and 'These days' (1995) are two of Bon Jovi's best albums.

They maybe a couple of good'ish albums, but that hardly makes them flawless master pieces does it!!. In fact, thinking about it, have they ever done a 100% flawless disc, even the 'S/T' (My fave) and 'Slippery' had a couple of clunkers.

I still rate 'Have a nice day' high but acknowledge they have been inconsistent as hell since 'These days'... I think it's a little exaggerated to say that 'New Jersey' was their last good album.

They haven't, but I doubt anyone's ever said they have. :) They were just a very good melodic rock band people like to pick on like big meanies.

 

And few bands have made flawless masterpeices. Bon Jovi have got a lot closer than most.

Did Slippery have filler? I don't know as much as I hate to admit that was really good album.

'Wild in the streets', 'Let it rock' and 'Social disease'.

 

s/t, 'New Jersey' and 'Keep the faith' kill this disc imo.

See I love those songs. And I probably listen to Faith, Jersey and even 7800(which I like better than the debut) more than I spin Slippery. Slippery was one of the first Hard Rock albums I heard and I've heard it so many times I'm kind of sick of it even though I still think it's a great album.

I know nothing regarding these accusations and really never like Ellis' band either. But I will say one thing: Cats in Boots is, bar none, THE coolest name for a band within the genre ever!!!!!!!!!!

    • I did not call him a misogynist. I said the joke was, and I do believe that one can tell such jokes without being one. It's perfectly possible to slip up and tell a joke and not consider what roots it might have. I'm no stranger to putting my foot in it myself from time to time.  That said, I'll keep out if these threads from now on and stick to the music part. It's clear that folks are pretty entrenched in their stands (I'm no different in this case) and it will only be one endless circular discussion where no-one moves an inches. Pointless. 
    • My C is always O. 
    • "Your being personally offended doesn't mean others have to change their behavior. You have the choice to go somewhere else." This statement had me slightly worried before your clarification above as it sounded as if it was fine for anyone to personally attack another member on this board for their skin tone, sexual preferences, nationality etc. and they could either like it, lump it or leave.  I always make a point to read your posts HH as they are consistently very well thought out and always well written. I trust that you will  regulate accordingly and your follow up statement above should make it perfectly clear to everyone here now. One of the few things co-vid can't touch is our music collections. ROWYCO, people!!!
    • I always refer back to Bernie Mac's line from the Kings of Comedy tour: "Jokes is jokes." We can't get too offended over comedy. Comedy has always been critical. It's always meant to make us feel uncomfortable in certain ways. It's always meant to challenge our way of thinking.   
    • Cherish The Day - Sade
    • Hopefully some sort of Live package with a CD/Blu Ray like Pretty Maids did with their recent Japan release. I'd even hazard a guess as to it being the Oct 27, 2019 show in Milan, Italy since it seems like Frontiers often captures those Italian shows....but that's just a blind guess. Either way, I'd probably pick this up if it's a decent package.  
    • Let me clarify: I don't mean to imply that it's open season or a free-for-all when it comes to posting racist, sexist, or homophobic comments. Rather I mean that I'm not about to ban someone or censor their posts because they make a joke about women, white people, black people, etc. Some self-restraint is expected, and if I see things getting out of hand, I reserve the right to prune content accordingly.
    • I'm Ok with all of that. I don't agree with open slater on homophobia, racism, etc, etc, but I'm not going to get updet about it. The tolerance shown on this board has actually been really impressive considering the topics. But it's your board and as you say, your rules. That said, I'm going to try and create some music topic over the next few days. I don't care if they have been done before, or are kinda lame, would be nice to not have to think so hard when I'm here
    • Can't say I would want to see HH become a politically correct forum....there is enough of that shit around....
    • Press release from Target Records: The spirit of the great eighties, captured in the modern studio. That is the essence of Danish rock group BOYS FROM HEAVEN. The band, captivated by the sound of the late seventies and early eighties – with stadium rockers like Toto and Journey – write, record and perform epic and grandiose rock music featuring the likes of lush vocal harmonies, wide piano, and synth hooks, fiery guitar solos and an oh-so-smooth alto saxophone. But the boys’ inspiration is not just confined to the era of reverb and Ray-Bans. Traces of the classic rock sound, pioneered by bands like The Who, are also present in the septet’s signature song DNA. All this is encompassed in the band’s debut album, “The Great Discovery”. The band has decided to produce the album themselves, with lead vocalist Chris Catton spearheading the process as mixing engineer, and the results speak for themselves: a sound with the audacity of a record written in the 1980s, and the punch of an album produced in 2020. Boys From Heaven is the best of both worlds: whimsical and witty, yet technically skilled. Rock’n’roll, yet soft and soulful. All this coming from a band only in their 20s. The release of the EP “No Way! But Anyway”put Boys From Heaven on the map in 2017, and in the two years that have followed since the band has gone on to perform at several well-established venues and festivals, such as Musikhuset Posten in Odense and Kløften Festivalin Haderslev, as well as the one day festival Skodborg Parkrock, with over 3.000 festival-goers. There, the band performed alongside several famous artists, among others Danish rock giants Gnags. The boys also made it to the final of the Tak Rock Band Battle 2018, held at the esteemed DR Concert House in Copenhagen, and gathered massive plays in national Danish radio along the way. Come 2020 and, after a dominating performance at festival Nordic Noise 2020 – Streaming For Vengeance, the Boys From Heaven secured a record deal with Target Records, for the release of their debut album. “The Great Discovery” will be released in digital, CD, and vinyl formats by Target Records (Mike Tramp, The Savage Rose) on October 23rd, 2020.   Tracklist: 01. The Ascent 02. Green Fields 03. Sunshine Soul 04. Burning Like A Flame 05. A Fool’s Hope 06. Keep On Movin’ 07. Memory 08. Only Child 09. Convictions 10. Old Days 11. Don’t You Cry 12. Worlds Apart 13. Smile
