Who Has Been The Best


Recommended Posts

At a concert, and to a lesser extent on album,who has been a very good or just adequate stand-in.


Example >>> Midge Ure in Thin Lizzy when Gary Moore went A.W.O.L.

(Very Good) on the Black Rose tour.

Well for a few years DREAMTIDE tried to stand in for FAIR WARNING, but it was kinda like a blind mule standing in for David Beckham on England's right flank...

Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer deputising for Ace & Peter.


You are spot on there Doggy. Peter Criss can't play drums for shit yet Eric Singer certainly can. :drink:

A few years ago I went to see Journey and Def Leppard. Steve Augeri was sick and couldn't play the rest of the tour so Jeff Scott Soto took over and wowed us all.

Years ago on AC/DC's BLOW UP YOUR VIDEO tour, Malcolm Young temporarily stepped down from the band in order to receive treatment for his drinking problem, and his nephew Stevie Young stood in for him. I saw that tour and in fact I didn't even realize that Malcolm wasn't there till someone at school that Monday asked me how "Stevie" did and I was like "Stevie who?" :rofl:

    • I have been easing myself back into gigs since last year. I had a four year lay off for various reasons, and first gig was The Warning last year. This year I have had three gigs booked so far, with only The Warning one already attended almost exactly a year after I saw them last year. I also have Cassidy Paris in August and Sophie Lloyd in October. I also have one gig booked for next year and it just so happens to be The Warning again ha ha
