wierd mix of acts on the Rock of Ages Festival - and opinions on replacement singers
SMF 1st Class
so we all know that Twisted Sister is the headliner of the Rock of Ages Festival in Germany.
I have a small problem with some of the acts.
the one highlight of the lineup is FISH
( AKA Derek Dick
) FISH was the original singer of MARILLION - one of my 10 favorite bands of all time. When he went solo his guitarist was JANIC GERS
( who was recruited away by Bruce Dickinson into Iron Maiden when Adrian left - now they are both in Iron Maiden - but thats another conversation
) FISH is just an amazing singer, and a total frontman. He tells long jokes between songs
( with his scottish accent
) 2 times seeing him solo - he has stayed after to have a few drinks with his fans. I almost want to fly overseas for this festival just for that.
( Give Marillion a try - even there newer stuff with Steve Horgath - FISH's early stuff really is amazing - kinda what Genesis would have been had Peter Gabrial not left the band
Where my problem lies is that several of the acts - have almost no original members - and usually replacement singers.
Vixen is touring with just the guitarist? Singer and all other members are replacements.
Uriah Heep - I have no idea on them. They have had the same line-up since 1986 - so I guess we can call them close to original.
ASIA is only Geoff Downs on Keyboards
( at the time of the original booking of the show
) But just annouced in the last few days - after 25 years - the original ASIA is getting back together
( with John Wetton on vocals
) So now I am not as pissed
( I learned this while checking their site just now
) Steve Howe
) on guitar and Carl Palmer on Drums
) Wow - this just brighten up my day.
UFO is pretty removed from their original lineup
( wasnt Michael Shenker in the group
) Even Jason Bohnam just left as the drummer - although he was like the 4th drummer they had
Andy Scotts Sweet - hell - cant even all the band SWEET - according to thier website - they dont even have a singer or a bass player right now.
Our Friend Eddie Trunk really says it right - when he thinks that bands need to put in thier advertisments who the current members are - and if there is a different singer
The New Cars with Todd Rundgren singing - I love love love Todd Rundgren - but with Kasim in the band - just call it what is is - UTOPIA
How can you call it Foreigner without Lou Graham on vocals.
Doors were amazing with Ian Aspbury on vocals - but they advertised it as such
( Jim Morrison was not available to tour
Keep this thread alive with other bands that need to call it quits with thier changed lineups
Ratt without Steven Pearcy
KISS without Peter and Ace
Van Halen without Michael Anthony - fuck the Van Halen Brothers
Warrent without Jani Lane
( really - why keep this band going without him
Skid Row without BaZ
