I don't think Glenn will journey much down the metal road
anymore. If he still wanted to, then he would have done another
album with Iommi or the project with Schenker. I think he will
travel the funky highway from now on. Which is fine with me.
I have really enjoyed his metal years & hard rock years but am
looking forward to hearing more Trapeze/Hughes-Thrall type of
material from Big Papa. That's where his heart is at.
...and dont forget that there actually IS a HTP 3 ...sorta...Im talking about the "Made In Moscow" recording which is absolutely not that bad at all!
I hope the next album will be really funky, if its not supposed to be classic rock anymore, but I mean really funky, no RHCP.
Ko san, good point.
Then what about these?
1. GH wished to do HTP songs but Joe did not wish to.
2. Once the set list is stabled, both GH and Joe did not wish to change them.
How about they didn't want or had the time to rehearse all these new songs. Throwing in a few DP / Rainbow songs in there would be much easier.
Also I think GH/JLT think they draw bigger crowds when playing the classic hits in favor of new HTP songs.....although I don't agree with this point of view.....
I agree to galleyfan , Glenn is on a funky road and HTP 3 will never be happen . I like the two studio albums but I have some problems with the Live in Tokyo CD and that's not because of Glenn !!! The Band played some songs much too fast ( listen to " Can' stop the Flood " ) , the Keyboards sounds sometimes like a 20 $ Casio , and the Guitar player must be an Yngwie-Fanatic . This album played by Glenn ' s regular Band with JJ on Guitar would be much better.But that's the past , now we all are looking forward to hear F.U.N.K . !!!!!!
I thought it was JJ on that album ? Whoever it is does a great job of the solo on Devil's Road... Or am I thinking it is JJ on the original?? He plays on the whole album right??
Aerocol , the guitar player on " Live in Tokyo " is Akira Kajiyama .
Sure he's a really good heavy metal guitarist , but I think he don't fits so well to this kind of melodic hard rock . Please compare " Can't stop the flood " with the live - version on " Soulfully live in the city of angels " , you hear the difference !!
JJ , George Nastos , ED Roth and Chad Smith played it perfect .
P.S. : My favourite songs from the two studio albums are "Sister Midnight" and "Losing my Head" .
