Re: The Who Announce Reissue Plans for Orchestral 'Tommy' LP - Ultimate Classic Rock

I wonder if Rod Stewart recorded anything beyond Pinball Wizard, as intended, and whether it will be added to this version. I've got the film soundtrack from 1975, but do not own the original...

It was worth a try as the collaboration with Jeffrey Calvert and Max West had been so successful, but the influence of Al Atkins was long gone by 1988.

Re: Duff McKagan and Izzy Stradlin Are Working on a New Album - Ultimate Classic Rock

Various permutations of Gn'R have sprung up over the years, whilst they avoid being all together in the same room at the same time. Perhaps they don't trust themselves, but it is quite frustrating.

Re: Blondie versus Van Halen!

Van Halen, but it is not really comparing like with like. Bondie were alright, but they didn't make an album like Fair Warning. Nigel Harrison was a pretty good bass player, but he deserved better.
