I was thinking about heading up for that show and the other one that weekend.... But then they booked 3 shows much closer to me, one being New Years Eve. So I'm not sure if I'll be up there or not. I'll keep you posted.

I should find out tonight if I'm going up to the NJ and NY shows. I'm going to see Funny Money tonight...If I can get put on the guest list up there I'll go. They always tell me never to hesitate to ask about the guest list but I always feel guilty if I ask. I think I have only asked 3 times and have been on it each time. But with the holidays I shouldn't spend money on myself (ie: KIX shows)... Although by the time I buy gas and a hotel room for the night I'm sure I'll be looking at somewhere around $150 to $200 anyway.

Hey Danny...


Have a great time at the KIX concert on Saturday night. I'm sure you will find it worth the long drive. I'm not sure what the weather will be like up that way but be careful and have a safe trip. :beerbang:

I'll tell ya... I just saw three KIX shows in the last 5 days and as hard as it may seem to believe these guys just keep getting better and better.


Also... For all members in the US...Look for KIX to do a small summer tour (8 to 10 shows). If this show hits your town (or anywhere withing 200 miles) don't miss it. :headbanger:

    • Shadows of Yesterday - Vinnie Moore
    • Sorry, that wasn't really what I meant. What I was really going for is that the songs on other albums seem to me to have more of a similar feel to them, like you can tell the songs for Freedom Rock were pretty much all written at the same time. I'm not saying that the songs on Force Majeure don't sound like H.E.A.T (even though I maintain it's not as good, based on the first few spins, as their previous efforts), but that they sound, to me, more "scatterbrained" than the selections from other records. That's not an easy thing to explain, but "direction" was the best word I could think of.    Again, I probably could explained my point better. I wasn't advocating for more guitars so much, but for more variety in the guitars we get. One of the best things for me about the first two H.E.A.T albums (less so for Address the Nation, but still there) was the subtle trade-offs between Dalone and Rivers and the solos that switched between them (good examples of this include the guitar work on "Late Night Lady," "Danger Road" and "Tonight," off the top of my head). Simply because Dalone and Rivers played different set ups and had some variance in tone, you could tell the difference between their playing (though admittedly there were times where Eric Rivers was completely underutilized and overshadowed). Because of the the combination of this record's production and the guitars being all Dave, you don't have as much of that, and that's what I was trying to convey.
    • Agree it reminds of earlier material, but I'm much less of a "Hang Tough" guy and much more of a "What A Shame" kind of guy.
    • Skid Row Nelson Steel Panther Harem Scarem WASP Van Hagar Saliva Joey Tempest Michael Sweet White Lion Mr. Big ... are the easy ones for me. Possibly Warrant as well come to think of it. Some other popular ones listed taht I don't agree with would be Slaughter - 2nd album pipped it GNR - always preferred either UYI albums Tuff - really only had 1 1/2 albums so don't count    
    • and the lyrics tick tock time to rock don't make you cringe?? if it was 1986 and I was 16 it might have been just passable but now, no. 
    • Another release that seems to have been completely overlooked here on HH... check out those vids for "Give It Up" and "Love Will Not Let You Down". I swear both tunes sound like something you'd hear from AdrianGale!  Compassion | Akiba Music (bandcamp.com)  
    • I might stone thrown at me, but hear some Scorpions.
    • "One Voice", which is a demo, is the only one I hear the tape "hiss" on...
    • Is that cassette tape hiss I hear at the start of the song? Is the whole album like that or only the demo tracks?
  • Create New...
