I know that I'm being unfaithful to this site by asking this but I'm into blues/electric blues these days and I want to know websites that are similar to heavy harmonies. There was this site that was suggested here that is similar to this site but its all about porn stars (freeones.com). I'm into The Jeff Healey Band, David Gogo, and Joe Bonamassa these days and I want to discover similar artists/bands such as these.

 

Any suggestions?

I don't know of any forums, but I would suggest finding an internet radio station dedicated to blues/blues rock and the like. Joe Bonamassa is amazing, also check out Stevie Ray Vaughan, Kenny Wayne Shepherd (kind of a Stevie clone), Walter Trout... wow, I'm just realizing I could go on forever. It's like the music we discuss. There's a shit-ton of it, and you could search and find a bunch of artists and only have scratched the surface. With that said, I'm going to reiterate the notion to find a station you like. A buddy of mine recommended one to me, and apparently it's all he listens to at work. I'll be honest that I only just checked it out now, because you reminded me of it. I like being in control of what I listen to, so I don't normally listen to radio. Anyway, here's the link: http://www.shoutcast.com/radio/Blues

My buddy likes the first one, but, as you can see, there are many to choose from. I know this doesn't fully answer your question, but I hope it helps, nevertheless.

Don't know any radio stations, but you should check out ERIC SARDINAS and a Local Jersey boy by the name Matt O'Ree :tumbsup:

Of course I gotta plug this one...

 

Check out Ronnie Younkins'(KIX) band.. The Blues Vultures. A decent mix of rock and blues.

Hey guys, THANKS!!! I've checked out several of your recommendations and really liked these Davy Knowles and Danny Bryant's Redeye Band. I still have to check out the others but please, keep on coming. I like to discover more of the same style (especially like that of Danny Bryant's Redeye Band).

    • New song 'Fans Of The Dark'.    
    • 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?
