    • Ron Young quotes... After setting their fans on fire, and then subjecting them to the Corona Virus, Great White announce their "Only The Strong Survive Tour" where the VIP package comes with a rabid, exploding Weasel. Dan was a great Tour Manager with tons of respect and experience. He took the fall for these guys because he was the one that ignited it. He came to me and told me they planned to use it and I told him No as he didn't have a licensed pyro tech to do it, didn't have the fire blanket or the required dedicated extinguishers to plan for the worse. Because they couldn't afford the tech or the proper pyro for indoor, they made a tragic error in judgement. Because Dan was so experienced and knew that the things I mentioned weren't present and triggered it, he took the fall when the band knew damn well it was mickey mouse operation. they want an arena show in a club and people died for that ego bullshit. They got lucky on all those other nights. Then when they pulled it off in a venue that was old, low ceiling and didn't tell anyone, a tragedy occurred. It was only a matter of time. Even when I told them they couldn't do it, they still set it up. Good thing I'm a cynical douchebag that knew they were arrogant and waited. Pulled their cheap ass pyro off the stage and threw it in the parking lot out the load out door. Fuckers. Too soon for what?....calling them out. My friend who was the Tour Manager who took the fall for when they burned down that club begs to differ. Read my other response. They knew EXACTLY how dangerous their shitty, low rent pyro was during their first calamity that wasn't meant for indoor use being set off by amateurs. They went for the money play again and used bad judgement once more....so no....it's not "too soon"....it's actually too late. Like so many artists who have done some bad shit...you can love their art and dislike them as humans. But we need to call things what they are. Of all bands to be subjecting folks to danger...no matter what your take on this Virus....they shouldn't be one of the first ones back out there. Not when I know so many guys who are starving, staying off the road for the safety of their fans and band members. After setting their fans on fire, and then subjecting them to the Corona Virus, Great White announce their "Only The Strong Survive Tour" where the VIP package comes with a rabid, exploding Weasel.
    • Yeah, Ron Young ripped into them of Facebook. Talked about the fire and how he advised that they shouldn't have pyro eyc> I'll see if I can find what he said. Interesting, and ballsy to put it out like he did.
    • I get that there may be lasting respirtory issues for those who have had the virus, particularly in serious cases. But th point is the terminology. Need to be careful with wording, or people will diregard what youa re trying to say. "the truth will come out" alludes to some kind of secret supression of information.
    • my favs too. Forget the rest.
    • dead planet is spot on. no conspiracy theory.....this is happening right now all across the world. And in the US for sure. im referring to the unknown factor right now. We refer to millions have recovered but they haven't. there will be lasting issues for a huge amount of these people and overtime this will all come out as the full effects are realised. obviously some have only minor symptoms or no symptoms and they will be ok. but labelling everyone as 'recovered' is just wrong. If you've been on a ventilator you're gonna have on going issues of some degree - varying of course - some minor, but enough to remind you had the Damn thing. some a lot worse.  
    • Yeah. I think there may be more to it. Also, walking the streets at 3am suggests that alcohol may have been a factor for both parties. Senseless, nonetheless. 
    • Alright here is my review after a few spins: I think this album is fantastic and easily the best this year (there won't be anything like it the rest of the year or years to come). Ted sounds fantastic as always and Steve really gets the opportunity to shine and knocks it out of the park. One thing I haven't seen mentioned yet is the lyrics or the lyrical quality which I think is absolutely top notch. The title track "Lions" hits home as I live five blocks north of what was the "CHAZ/CHOP" in Seattle and we literally had streets on fire (plus other things which can be a whole discussion in of itself). I love music that is uplifting while also being relatable and this album nails it (Lions and Dream Your Heart Out as examples). "Mean It" is my favorite song of the album and really hits home in terms of sounding like a song straight out of the 80s. "Sedona", which is a catchy song, brings in the saxophone which I think is awesome and help rounds out the album's sound. All the instruments are layered very nicely and helps create this "warmth" of the album that is very hard to find. Obviously, Frontiers launched this album on 7/10 which is in heart of summer in the US and I can see why. It's perfect for those summer nights with the windows down, driving next to the beach in a loud V8. TMF is an incredibly unique band (we should all feel very lucky to have their sound in 2020, seriously!!!!!!!!) and just like the first album, I will enjoy for years to come (or till the third one in 2023). Of note: it's really too bad Frontiers didn't release this or the first album (or The Defiant's albums) on vinyl. TMF's sound is exactly what I want to hear on vinyl. To told one or both of their albums in my hand (not CD, bleh) would be amazing. Overall: 10 / 10 (an amazing effort by the guys that I will share with everyone I know)
    • Terrible thing if it is accurate....we are however only hearing one side of the incident...one red flag for me is that the boyfriend was armed...what's up with that? Makes me think there is a lot more to this story than we are hearing...
    • Yes here is our beloved BLM peacefully hard at work, and our brilliant and unbiased media who so many take as gospel, never even uttering a single word about this, oh except for OAN, but their slanted so they don't count, Pathetic.   https://www.the-sun.com/news/1125847/mom-jessica-doty-whitaker-shot-dead-black-lives-matter-argument/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=sharebarweb     https://www.wnd.com/2020/07/young-mother-shot-head-saying-lives-matter/?utm_source=Facebook&fbclid=IwAR3HAL13mt2au0SsSScwIh60-ON9bvuPOGnElTXFujZz7YpwubCUUPw7NfE
    • Its a very laid back bluesy kind of record and the production is balls.
