I'm back, like a bad penny.

Hi, Heavy Harmonizers!

 

My name is Jim, and although I've been a member of this site for a long time, I haven't been on the boards in years. Some serious family health issues made me re-evaluate my priorities, and I realized that I was spending too much time with my cyber-friends and not enough with my wife and kids. But now that my wife is doing better, and I'm more mature (snicker) and less likely to be a candidate for an HH intervention, I figured it was safe to wade back into the melodic-metal pool with you all again. (But not for half an hour or so...I just had a sandwich.)

 

Anyway, I don't expect anyone to actually remember me, so here's what I wrote many years ago...

 

Gosh. Where to start?

Well, first--my name is Jimbo with one "o".

My hobbies include running stuff over with my car and taxidermy.

I enjoy beach-lit walks on the moon.

And if I could meet anyone alive or dead I would prefer to be alive.

 

And you?

 

See you around!

Wow man, probably my fave yet. Is this the only one you've had since the girls walking up the stairs? Or did you change to one after that too? I hope I haven't missed any. Who is the girl is this avatar do you know?

Of course I remember you and your intense maturity, much like my own... ;)

 

Welcome back man, good to see you back! And very glad to see the health issues are improving. :drink:

Welcome home, Jimbo.

At last I meet the man behind the many threads I reply to.

I can't say if nothing's changed around here, 'cause I've only been here a few months, but there are nachos and beer to be had. Help yourself. :drink:

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What? (Expanded) The Allman Betts Band - Down to the River Mike Oldfield - Five Miles Out (Remaster) Buckingham & McVie - S/T Michael Hutchence - S/T Roxy Music - Stranded (Remaster) Echo & the Bunnymen - Reverberation  Echo & the Bunnymen - Evergreen (Expanded)
    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
