Recommended Posts

Read this today at various places, it don`t get much better than this for me, albeit it`s a shame it wasn`t 30 years ago.

 

Supposedly the dates will be released in two weeks time.

 

I`ve seen Journey twice, once with Steve Augeri and once with Jeff Scott Soto (never with the legend Steve Perry :crying: )

 

Seen Foreigner four times, three times with the awesome Lou Gramm, first time in 1985 on the Agent Provocateur tour, went to see Foreigner with Kelly Hansen (excellent)

 

Went to see Styx around four years ago, no Dennis De Young but Lawrence Gowan was great and Styx were absolutely spot on brilliant.

Saw Journey with Augeri, again unfortunately not with Perry, Styx on the 'Paradise Theater' tour, but unfortunately i've never seen Foreigner, so will seriously look into going to this if dates allow.

Said it before, jammy sod as I got into Styx around 1983 so missed the chance to go to Stafford Bingley Hall with my cousin and dad to see Styx on the Paradise Theater tour, my dad still reckons it`s the best concert he ever went to and he`s seen some of my other faves in the 70`s, Rainbow, Boston, UFO, Scorps and Van Halen.

At least I got to see classic Foreigner :nyanya:

If this tour comes thru the US, I may have to break my Arnel-boycott to go see them.

 

I saw Journey twice w/ Augeri and loved it both times. I saw Styx in 1996 when DDY was still with them. I saw Foreigner w/ Gramm (but it was 1999 w/ Journey and Gramm, bless his heart, sounded horrible).

My dad is still into rock music at 67 years old, only yesterday, I ordered some Axel Rudi Pell cd`s for him.

He`s got a massive cd collection, used to be a guitarist in a band who supported Johnny Kidd And The Pirates (Shakin` All Over).

 

This is how I got into rock music in 1980, my dad had everything that was worth having at the time, he was always blasting his rock music out and I kind of got brainwashed, all my mates thought he was a cool dad.

Nick, I saw them in Brum too, me and my mate missed our train back and had to get a taxi and we had no money, dad bailed me out at other end. I was really disappointed Night Ranger were`nt supporting that night, that`s one of the few bands I really wanted to see.

    • Defunding the cops was never the answer....there are a few cities where they are trying to make changes, such as adding an option to the 911 emergency number where you can choose 'a mental health issue' option which sends people (not cops) who are trained to deal with the situation....which frees cops up to do the work that they are trained for....
    • Yeah, that's why the entire BLM "Defund the police" movement was (and is) so fucking idiotic. The police need more assistance, resources, and training, not less.
    • The media and politicians are pro-police because the vast majority of the people they serve are pro-police and until that changes you will not see either group turn against the police....which is how it should be, the more difficult we make the job of policing, the harder it will be to get people to do the job so even if you are upset with how things are being done during the pandemic, maybe you should give the cops a little bit of understanding...
    • Pretty unlikely to get many fires this year with La Nina
    • I don't know how "firefighters" are defined or utilized in Australia vs. here in the USA, but presumably they are included because as first responders they may be called upon to rescue or render medical attention to people, and you wouldn't want the first responders to be giving Covid to them, or worse having a situation where either the recipient is forced into a position of declining medical assistance or the firefighters reluctant to render it. I actually agree with the mandatory vaccination policy in this case. 
    • In case anyone might have forgotten what a fucken dump Australia is right now, in a country that was ravaged by bushfires two years ago, volunteer firefighters are now required to be vaccinated to be able to provide their service. Many will not, so in an occupation where we were flying in firefighters from the US and Canada etc. at the peak of our issues to help out, we are standing volunteers down because they won't get vaccinated. Because christ almighty knows, that the last thing we want is for firefighters to be giving the fires they fight covid-19.  https://thewest.com.au/news/coronavirus/volunteer-fire-and-rescue-service-members-included-in-mandatory-vaccination-mandate-c-4564212 That story only covers WA, but I saw an interview today with a guy from NSW and as far as I understand it's a country-wide requirement?  I honestly just don't have the words to describe my thoughts on matters like this. Are we actually the dumbest fucking country on planet earth, or is shit like this happening in other countries?  Imagine honestly trying to excuse actions like this if we had fires like we did a couple of years ago and able-bodied, willing and experienced firefighters were sitting at home watching houses burn on TV because their stupid fucking cunt government thought that forcing a pointless needle into their arm was more important than the work these people do. Unbe-fucking-lievable.  
    • Here's my ability to read and interpret information. You say that you no longer teach your kids to respect police. You seem open in your statement "Fuck the pigs" You may say that in front of them. If you don't I'm sure they will pick up on it. Kids learn from their parents. I'm happy with my interpretation. It's sad that people can generalise so vigorously. I would put forward that a MASSIVE percentage of cops are good, if not great cops. we're looking at only a very few cops here who overstep and gain a lot of press. I know 3 people who have applied for the force. One got in, one didn't, one is in the process now. Their requirements are extremely high, and not adhering to just one part of the process 100% equals a fail. In the case of the person who didn't get in, she got through all the psych, fitness, etc, but didn't come across as confident enough in a phone interview, so that was it. Cops are legends.
