Nope, again I haven't seen any of these. :( John Waite would have been nice, though.

I wasn't expecting much from John Waite... I actually went to the show to see the opener... The Ravyns (local band whos claim to fame was having a song on the "Fast Times At Ridgemont High" soundtrack). I didn't even know if I was gonna hang around for John Waite or not. I figured I'd give him a song or two. I've gotta say... GREAT SHOW. Of course I ended up staying for the whole set. John Waite actually ROCKED.

Haven't seen any (except for Sammy in Van Halen). John Waite would be cool, love his stuff and Ace and Sammy would be worth a look.

Ace Frehley lived in Franklin Lakes, NJ for a while in the early 90s so he was constantly doing local club gigs around that time. I'm trying to remember how many times I saw him now, at least 5 or 6 times. Two of those shows were with Peter Criss' band "CRISS" in late 1995, which was billed as the "Bad Boys Tour" -- we know now, of course, that the tour was intended to whip both Ace & Peter back into road shape for the upcoming KISS reunion.

 

If I remember correctly, the first Ace show I saw was at Studio One in Newark and that was Thanksgiving night, 1992.

 

Then at least twice (possibly three times) between 1993-94 at a place called Rock The House in Wallington, NJ.

 

Then the two gigs w/Criss - one at the Birch Hill Nightclub in Old Bridge and again at a blink-and-you-missed it club in Greenwood Lake, NY called "The Sterling Room" (which I swear opened and closed within a matter of weeks)... the gig in Greenwood Lake was the last show of the tour. My friend Ralph and I got totally lost looking for the place as it was in an unfamiliar region, and got there just as Criss was taking the stage. We didn't feel so bad about our directional retardation when Ace came onstage later and sez "How you doing everybody? Welcome to... where the f**k are we again? It took us FOREVER to find this place!" :rofl2:

 

The Ace/Criss gig at the Birch Hill apparently broke the attendance record for the club.

 

So, yeah...Ace rules. :banger:

Saw Mr. Roth on the Eat Em & Smile Tour. Cinderella was the opener supporting the Night Songs release.

 

Both bands were good, Dave did all of Eat Em plus the EP and a bunch of classic Halen. Bill Sheehan on bass and Steve Vai on guitar. Dave's voice sounded great and he is a showman bar none, tons of theatrical jumping and costumes/outfits and crowd interaction galore.

 

Of note the keyboardist for Cinderella was actually hidden behind all the Marshall's. We went up and around in the arena and could look down behind the stage and were like wtf???

 

Haven't seen any of the others solo, like Jez I did see the Hagar fronted Halen. As for Pearcy I would think his voice is hashed and would be a dissappointment live today...

I saw DLR on the Skyscraper tour, It was AWESOME. Faster Pussycat opened, they were good also.

I also saw Ace open for Maiden back in the day (Seventh Son Of A Seven Son and Second Sighting I think).A great show by Maiden and a good show by Ace and the boys.

Great story as always Keith. Around that time I was in Ace's Rock Soldiers fan club but he never played anywhere near where I lived so I never had a chance to see him. I was a huge fan of him at that time and still am and would love to see him live especially if I could go back and see his first few tours from 87-89.

Seen Sammy Hagar a couple of times solo and he was awesome! Great!

 

Dave Lee Roth on the other hand, I saw him with Warrant as support and they both sucked, in fact I left before DLR had finished and went to Rockworld/Banshee so I didn't have to mess about with the crush leaving the venue. The Labour party just had their conference there and much as I hate that bunch of tossers it probably rocked more.

    • 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.

    • 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.
