Joe Satriani says that Chickenfoot is over...
Satch Wants to tour - Hagar has a touring Band with Jason Bonham...
I think that Satriani is much much better than Aldrich...maybe a Trio with Kenny Aronoff on Drums...
Good news for all GF fans: this album is available!!! I got it via CDEXPRESS (http://www.cdxpress.co.uk/) !!!

I was one of the 200 people...really great gig and great band! I have all their cds and so I can say: check them out!
JJ Marsh plays on two cds from Tomas Bodin:
SONIC BOULEVARD (2003) and
There is also a possibility that JJ plays on a fun album called SWEDISH FAMILY - VINTAGE PROG (2004)! That's also a BODIN album where all the musicians are listed with fun names!
The soon to be recorded album by Bodin is the second part of his planned trilogy - IAM was the first - YOUARE will be next!
Hope to hear some soundfiles from MUSIC FOR THE DIVINE
Best wishes Michael
Welcome to the club! We went from Graz...stayed also for the night...and yes it's the disappointment of the year!
First I wanted to go to Regensburg...but we wanted to see Glenn in Austria...
...but I was early enough to get FFF and a T-shirt...
Hope to see Glenn in Austria soon...maybe before Arrow Rock!
All the best Michael
These are great news but there are two songs missing: In my blood and Blue Jade
Any possibilities to get them too!?
In previous years a Emerson/Bonilla/Hughes live album was announced but never released. What happened withe these plans?
Are there any news about!?
According to the news from melodicrock.com Van Halen will reunite!!! These are very good news from my point of view!
But now it looks like the planed supergroup Planet US with Hagar, Schon, Anthony and Castranovo will not happen...
Some years ago I suggested Glenn as new VH singer! As Glenn and Neal Schon have both talked about their mutual admiration I think Glenn should join Neal in Planet US!
Last week I bought the new solo album from Tomas Bodin who is the keyboard player of the fantastic swedish group FLOWER KINGS!
It's his third solo album and JJ Marsh is playing the guitars on 7 tracks!
We all could/can keep an eye on his development as a really great guitar player - the HTP 2 was his last highlight!
On the Bodin album he has reached a new level! Check it out!!!!
All the best Michael
Are there any news about the live album from Marc Bonilla & Keith Emerson on which GH should also appear!?
I saw 2 Stevie Salas concerts and all I can say is: If you have a chance to see him - go an get him!!!! He is really brilliant!!! One oft the hottest live acts - especially in smal clubs - he kicks ass!!!!
I never saw T.M. live - but his albums are great! And they are important for the funky GH-fans! Listen!!!!
Yes I mean the keyboardist and top producer! And also on this album: Guy Pratt!!! One of my favourite bassists...
Here are my contributions to the must-have albums for the GH fan:
First of all I have to say that my musical taste is quite diverse â€“ I have CDâ€˜s from Metallica to very soft US-pop, from Dream Theater to Toto, some funk or jazz and of course classic hard rock.
There are a lot of great albums here already mentioned â€“ but also some new things for me which Iâ€™ll check out soon! The only thing I cannot understand at all is David Hasselhoff! Come on James â€“ you live in the homeland of Rock!!!???
So here is my list:
Stevie Salas â€“ Back from the living
Stevie Salas â€“ All that...and born to mack (Live in Japan)
Third Eye â€“ Hardware
Nicklebag â€“ 12 hits and a bump
Three albums from Stevie...featuring some great musicians like T.M.Stevens, Bernard Fowler or on the Third Eye album Bootsy Collins and Buddy Miles...thatâ€™s rock with funk in the vein of the songs Stevie has done with GH on â€žthe way it isâ€œ...
Diesel â€“ Solid state rhyme
Great australien musician...the album from 1995....he has also contibuted to some Jimmy Barnes songs! Good mix of rock, pop and funk!
Richie Kotzen was also mentioned! I think he gets better and better! Therefore â€žSlowâ€œ is MY album!
Very sensious is the music from Maxwell! Check out â€žMaxwellâ€™s urban hang suiteâ€œ or â€žEmbryaâ€œ! Very groovy and sexy too...
From Kingâ€™s X â€žGretchen goes to Nebraskaâ€œ â€“ from 1989 the best from them for me until today
Tackhead â€“ â€žStrange thingsâ€œ...very rare...very groovy...great music from great players/singers featuring Bernard Fowler and Doug Whimbish
Then my â€žRichard Pageâ€œ-section...great musician and singer from the L.A. studio scene...with:
Mr. Mister â€“ â€žWelcome to the real worldâ€œ and â€žGo onâ€œ
Third Matinee â€“ â€žMeanwhileâ€œ featuring also Patrick Leonhard and many studio cracks from L.A.
Richard Page â€“ â€žShelter meâ€œ
And then: Dan Reed Network â€“ â€žDan Reed Networkâ€œ and â€žSlamâ€œ...perfect mix of rock and funk...
A must-have for me: Seal â€“ â€žHuman beingâ€œ and â€žSealâ€œ from 1994
Jeff Scott Soto â€“ Parade (his first solo albums â€“ much better than his last one)
Kip Winger â€“ both solo albums
Powerstation â€“ Living in fear (great mix of everything â€“ Robert Palmer in great form...last production from Bernard Edwards...RIP)
No Doubt â€“ Rock steady
Please excuse my english mistakes â€“ Iâ€™m out of practice...
