Recommended Posts

This young dude from Canada is YouTube famous by his amazing Van Halen interpretations. Here's his first single. As for myself I can't wait for the full album.

Wow mate. He can play the guitar, but that is an awful as it gets. I'm talking -10/10 type of song. Hate it... but yes, he can play. Massive, massive waste of talent, though. What's the point in being able to play if that's what you do with it? Give me an average musician who's a good songwriter any day. :)

I have to agree. It really is not much of a song, and he really is not that great as a vocalist.

Awesome guitar work, but the song itself and the vocals are a huge let down.

Yea. Get this dude in a real band. Don't think the vocals are that bad (maybe a little thin on the power scale) and I actually think they are the best thing about this tune. No doubt he can shred but this song is way too busy and not catchy at all.

Sounds fine to me and his playing is good. Reminds me of Josh Zee from Prot!en which is a mega compliment.

That song is way better, vocals included.
Hate that they didn't bother putting someone in with a bass just so it makes more sense.
Kid sister, whatever...

Could it be better, yes. But I don't think it's bad at all. Most guys his age are playing shit music for the most part, I'll take this over 99% of USA's youth music any day.

    • Cool tune - massive s/t album type vibe to it. 
    • Could be. I think they have better distribution in Europe.
    • Trace - Line Of Fire Passion Play - Time Stands Still Mike + The Mechanics - The Singles 1985 - 2014 (2 CD) Frameshift - An Absence Of Empathy Lion´s Share - Dark Hours + 1 Platens - Between Two Horizons No Sweat - Tear Down The Walls (CD-single) Texas - Tired Of Being Alone Acoustic EP
    • Then later by AOR Heaven also I think? 
    • No doubt in the world he has a sound and he doesn't stray far from it... but if it's that good I'm prepared to be lenient here,
    • Also, the boulevard album is near perfection except the 1 minute of madness at the end of Slippin Away. What were they thinking??  Might be my most played album of 2017. More accurately would no 2 spot. really looking forward to seeing them again on Saturday 
    • Yeah, I love the original.
      Interestingly, Sly Stallone wanted "Another One Bites The Dust" and Queen wouldn't allow the ise, so he asked Survivor to write their version of the Queen song.
      The watched some of the movies and saw the line "you've lost the eye of the tiger", liked the line and wrote the song.
      Another footnote, for the next movie they were presented with that "you're the best... around" song and rejected it and it went on the get fame in the Karate Kid movie. Anyway, like I said, I love the original song, but to me it sounds a bit rawer than this version.
      This version doesn't suck, it's just average in the way of "what's the point"
      Nothing new, no new take on the song.
      if you're gonna redo a song like this, it has to be (as Paul Stanley would say) bombastic.
      This isn't.

      No biggie, but of all the covers are lesser versions of the originals I'll obviously have no interest.
      To cover a song you either improve it or do your own take on it.
      Simply re-recording it with newer technology and a cleaner sound etc is not very inspiring.
    • Not sure what you mean by that. You reckon this version is more AOR than the original? Bonfire are by nature a bit ballsier than Survivor in that era and this just sounds like Bonfire doing a Survivor cover, which, by nature, is a bit more hard rock than AOR... to these ears anyway. Decent cover. 
    • Why are the making the songs more AOR than the originals? Very average.
