I just gave in and ordered this, despite my reservations about the price, and emailed Ted to ask if it was still ok to get it signed, even though it wasnt a preorder.

He emailed back saying that it would be no problem, and was real friendly and complimentary when I thanked him.

 

Nice to see some people still have respect for their fans.

Interestingly just noticed that Amazon.co.uk is taking pre-orders for an August release, and it has this cover.

I can only assume that by the time it comes to supplying Amazon, the name will have changed.

Im gonna pay some respect To Ted. I think that a lot here know who he is. Someknow what a cool guy he is. A man that will always give his fans 100%. And probably go out of his way to do so. I honestly think so! Maybe I missed it, but in all the years Ive been on music message boards, I cant remember anyone saying something bad about the man. Just a good human being and a very cool guy! Helluva singer too. ;)

 

I corresponded with Ted a few times by email this past weekend. On Thursday I had questions about his Greatestits CD. He answered right away. I ordered The CD on Friday and by Monday it was in my mailbox. He even autographed it. And threw in one of his guitar picks!!How many guys (artists) will take care of their fans like that. Not enough for sure.

 

But Ive played the the 2disc CD twice already. And its in my car now to play again. You know hes been in all those great bands and played with some really great people. Those songs are on the CD! It includes some great classics from many of his bands, some rare unreleased tracks and two new songs. How many CDs, let alone dble CDs can you buy for $22.00? Its got 35 songs on it! Damn It, this is a great deal for a great CD from a great guy!

 

You know you want it. Hurry up and you too can have the Cd that has the pic of some great Tits on the front. :) Thats why I hurried and ordered it. Not really Ted. But I do love Boobies!!

 

Anyway I wanted to let you all know what your missing. And to say my Thanks to Ted!!

Yeah I agree about Ted, as one of my posts above will attest, he is a nice guy.

When I thanked him for still signing the CD, even though it wasnt a preorder, he said "I do it all for you!".

Thats a guy who appreciates his fans.

 

Over the years I have chatted to a few rock stars via email, and its surprising how many of them are willing to go out of their way to chat to people.

The friendliest people I have spoken to over the years have to be Ted, Steve West, Bill Leverty, Stevie Rachelle and Michael Sweet.

 

Stevie was another guy who appreciates his customers.

I ordered a few CDs off him, and one of them (Pete Lorans solo CD) had gone missing as he had recently packed things up during a move.

He emailed me to let me know he would refund me for the disc, and let me know if it ever turned up.

When I recieved my package, he had chucked in Kings of the sunset strip and Hey thats what I call Sludge for free to make up for the inconvenience.

I emailed him again a few weeks later to check on the Loran CD, but it still hadnt shown up.

 

Class acts.

Well there ya go, not is he a nice guy, but he is also someone who has proved that people who claim that postage from USA to UK takes up to 28 days, to be liars.

 

Ordered it on the 24th, got it on the 30th...less than a week!

Just seen he has reissued this album with a new cover, or rather covers.

Its apparently done in an accordian style with six different covers that you can select which one you want to display.

They are all minor reworkings of other bands album covers, with Teds face put onto them.

So far I have only seen three of them.

Danger Danger - Screw it (Teds face on the monkey)

Nirvana - Nevermind (Teds face on the baby)

Queen - News of the world (Teds face on the robot)

 

What seems to also be a cool idea for those that already own it with the tittie cover, is that if you really want all the covers but dont want to rebuy the CD, you can just buy the new cover on its own.

    • idk guys, I think you can only polish a turd so much. It's definitely a great attempt and as whiplash1972 says, there have been a lot of such projects since, what, 2007ish? But IMO St. Anger has never been a bad album only because of the snare drum, or the lack of guitar solos, or the long songs. It's a bad album because it's an album full of bad songs. Metallica is supposed to be badass! This is not that! Listen to Invisible Kid or Purify and tell me what's even a little cool about those songs. The whole thing is just so whiny and cringey, definitely a product of its era which was the worst for metal as a genre.
    • Didn’t realise Def Leppard were a synthwave band, ‘cause these guys sound like ‘Hysteria’ era Def Leppard more than anything else I can think of. 😉 I was wondering the other day how many people miss out on good music because it is not under a label they desire. Very sad.

    • Madison Talk of the Town Masquerade Roulette Might be missing.  
    • Nuff said. It's comments like these that are so helpful. Saved me 30 seconds clicking a YouTube like 😀
    • From Lions Pride Music: In the vibrant era of late ’80s and early ’90s, when Hard Rock ruled the charts and iconic bands were born in the lively streets of L.A., a lesser-known yet equally formidable force emerged from the heart of Germany – Wiesbaden to be precise. It was in this cultural backdrop that five talented musicians converged, forming a band that would redefine Melodic Hard Rock. Thus, SHEELA was born. Their creative hub was a basement rehearsal space in an old street house, which would later evolve into Markus Teske’s legendary BAZEMENT Studio. This studio would become the birthplace of several successful albums for bands like U.D.O., Vanden Plas, Dominci, The New Roses, and more. In 1995, SHEELA released their debut album, ”BURNED DOWN,” meticulously crafted and recorded at the BAZEMENT Studio. The album, showcasing a blend of powerful vocals, compelling guitar lines, and intricate arrangements, achieved instant success in Japan. Renowned magazines like BURRN and ROCK HARD recognized their potential, with the former awarding the album 87 points. ”BURNED DOWN” opens with the captivating ”LONG TIME,” a track featuring a memorable guitar line in the chorus. The album progresses through the anthemic ”READY” and the soulful ”HOLDIN’ ON,” leaving an indelible mark on the Hard Rock scene of the time. The success of the album paved the way for a tour and, later in 1995, personnel changes in the band.

The success of the album paved the way for a tour and, later in 1995, personnel changes in the band. Their second album, ”CHANGES,” dropped in 1997, again making waves in Japan before conquering European audiences during a tour with Canadian superstars SAGA. In the subsequent years, SHEELA shared stages with legendary acts like FATES WARNING, won the KARLSBERG CHALLENGE, and made a mark in the USA by performing at the STURGIS RALLY alongside bands like STYX and REO SPEEDWAGON. The journey continued with their third album, ”STRAIGHT HEARTED ONES” (2001), featuring guest musician Michael Sadler of SAGA. SHEELA toured extensively, opening for heavyweights like NAZARETH, MANFRED MAN, POISON, and even sharing the stage with Germany’s most successful Rockband – THE SCORPIONS. However, like any great rock story, SHEELA encountered lineup changes, and in 2002, Markus Teske bid farewell, leaving Christian Moser as the sole remaining member of the original lineup. Despite the changes, SHEELA’s impact endured, with discussions and online buzz surrounding their music even in 2018. Described as ”One of Germany’s secrets,” the timeless classics ”LONG TIME” and ”BURNED DOWN” continue to resonate with fans, prompting a resurgence in interest. In 2023, SHEELA signed a landmark deal with Lions Pride Music, a renowned record label based in Denmark. This collaboration brought forth a reissue of their debut album ”Burned Down,” remixed, remastered, and adorned with a new artwork. This worldwide release on CD and Digital platforms reintroduced the timeless magic of SHEELA to a global audience, reaffirming their status as pioneers of Melodic Hard Rock. SHEELA’s journey, marked by musical evolution, international recognition, and an enduring legacy, is a testament to the band’s commitment to creating timeless Hard Rock that transcends eras. As we look back at the album that started it all, ”BURNED DOWN,” SHEELA’s legacy lives on, leaving an indelible mark on the history of German rock. Sheela is: Wolfgang Ilsy Terne – Lead Vocals & Guitars Christian Moser – Guitars & Backing Vocals Markus Teske – Keyboards & Backing Vocals Tony Spagone – Bass & Backing Vocals Jojo Nimtz – Drums & Backing Vocals Special Guests: Patricia Loesch – Backing Vocals Martin Hofmann – Backing Vocals Robert Henrich – Harp Stefan Djokic – Slide Guitar Recorded in 1995 @ Bazement Studios, Wiesbaden, Germany 1995.
