Will White return?

I gave the band a hard time at the start of this summers tour.. to my ears they just were not hitting the mark.. With that said some of the recordings I've listened to later on in the tour changed my mind.. They sounded good.. Was is inevitable that Billy and the new drummer would take a few shows t...

Current Tour

I realize there's not many folks checking in on this site these days.. Curious if anyone has attended any of the Drama / Tales tour dates as yet. From the limited exposure I've had via Youtube videos.. I'm not impressed.. shame really..

Re: rnr hof voting

I consider the RnR HoF to be on the same level as Rolling Stone mag. Useta be a good thing, lost it's way, and is now only suitable if you have a cat or a bird (in the case of RS mag), or a political good ol' boys club (in the case of the RnR HoF). I would go into the RnR HoF if I were in the city ...

Re: Heaven and Earth - what does everyone [anyone] think?

I may be in the minority here.. but I like my Yes with some "balls".. and this release offers little of that.. Subway Walls and Light of the Ages come close to what I would expect from a Yes release.. You'd think they could have taken the necessary time in order to be a bit more creative v...

Re: Alan Parsons copies Donna Summer?? say it ain't so..

Disco Robot? lol Interesting that you noticed the similarity! Yeah I'm a huge Donna Summer fan (not), no I simply had on the 1976 disc from a Time Life Best of the 70's series and up popped her song and for whatever reason I let it play thru rather than flip to the next song. As I recall that song ...

Re: Alan Parsons copies Donna Summer?? say it ain't so..

Just listened to the two songs, and I can see where you're coming from, but it's more a case of the two songs being in the same key with a similar tempo and groove. I wouldn't say it was copying, as both songs are essentially just a groove around a tonic (C Minor I think), one with a vocal melody a...

Alan Parsons copies Donna Summer?? say it ain't so..

Call me crazy but I heard Donna Summers "Love to love ya baby" on the radio today and the similarity to the instrumental "I Robot" was unreal. So when I got home I cued it up and sure enough around 2.19 into the song you have an instrumental break that is lifted one year later by Alan Parson on the ...

Alan White's White

Did a quick search but nothing came up with this topic. I'm sure it was discussed when it was first released, however I'm just getting around to listening this. Found it at an "attractive" price and after a few listens I'm liking this album a lot. Shame the "More Drama" tour didn't materialize this ...

Peter Frampton is the guy that uses that tube-like thing on his guitar right? -gives it a sort of aquatic wah-wah tone. Joe Walsh uses that too, and Pink Floyd occassionally.

Re: "Re-creating Tour"

I saw the 76 tour and yeah, they would need Moraz and Anderson to do it justice. The stage setup was very cool with the "bug" or whatever it was behind Alan that had wings flapping . And of course the light show was amazing. I'd be happy if they simply re-vamped the set list to include "new" materia...
