    It's all good. I'm just a little sensitive at times.

    Not from me either. I've had the pleasure of seeing her a couple of times in the last 10 years. Great shows!

    Loved his voice. You're right on the money about Badlands being criminally under appreciated. Did you get into Red Dragon Cartel at all?

    A bit. It's kind of hit/miss. There's a new album coming which I hope is more coherent.

    Maybe Jake E Lee was retired for so long that it'll take a few tries.

    I felt the same way, and hope the same thing about the new one. It was just nice to have some new music from him.

    Not from me, either. Very powerful voice. Got to see the Detour tour, and she killed it. I was looking forward to "I Drove All Night" - I think it was the third song in the set, and man, she nailed it and got an enthusiastic standing ovation that took me by surprise.

    Same tour, different show...

    Badlands were such an amazing band. Saw them in 89, one of their US first shows in Tampa as an opening act for Tesla & Great White. Jake had a knee immobilizer on. Waited so long for new music and the Cartel was a let down. The singer is such a disappointment, to this day I cannot listen to the entire album. Hopefully the new disc will be an instrumental (HA)

    Why do we keep forgetting about Chrissiy Hynde? She sings and plays guitar.

    I will go out on a limb and declare that Paul Rodgers (Free, Bad Company) is the greatest rock and roll singer of all time and still delivers the goods decades later.

    I agree. Unfortunately for her, she was in a band with sister Ann...who has one the best sets of pipes in rock, male or female imho.


    I mentioned him in the other thread on bands that should've been bigger, but Steve Walsh of Kansas was a great singer.

    Well......he’s certainly not under-rated. ;)




    Agreed, one of the best ever.

    No he’s certainly not.

    Always loved David Coverdale, during his Northwinds/DC’s Whitesnake era, very subtle and exposed emotionally!

    It’s quite ”Rodgeresque” also listening to it again after many years it’s got similarities to George Michael’s vocal phrasing also.
