Just takea look at the guy with this drum solo: Oh yeah, Buddy Rich is one of Neil Peart's idols and he said he will never play the drums as good as him.

And Buddy Rich's idol and drum hero was Gene Krupa (portrayed by Sal Mineo very well by the way, in a movie about his life).



Ever hear their duet album?

Yes, Gene Krupa was awesome also, and I've heard of their duets album. They both had their unique styles. I think Gene Krupa was a bit more artistic, and Buddy flat out was the fastest drummer who ever lived. I have no doubt they were the world's greatest drummers.

Deep Purple - Slaves And Masters - 1990



One of my favorite Deep Purple albums, despite the scorn that even band members have heaped upon it. A great album from Joe Lynn Turner in between Malmsteen and Mother's Army. Tasty riffs from every one, and well produced.

M3 - Rough And Ready - 2005



I'm certainly into the Vandenberg, Campbell, Vai, Sykes, Beach, etc. era Whitesnake, but I was raised on the Moody/Mardsen version. This is them with Neil Murray (hence M3), running through all the great hits from that era. Video is really good, and the editing/production crew know to actually stay on the guitarist during a guitar solo. A nice change of pace. Stefan Bergrenn(?) does a nice laid back Coverdale impression, and Doogie White takes the over the top spot. Nice affordable DVD that delivers.

Voodoo Circle - Broken Heart Syndrome - 2011 - Deluxe Edition




I've held out for a long time on this one due to crazy amazon pricing for the edition with the bonus track but read that AFM resigned them for a early 2013 release, so I figured the time was now. Whereas the first VC cd was more of a malmsteenesque wank fest, Alex Beyrodt is (mostly) constrained and going the more soulful bluesier route. Everyone is comparing this to a Rainbow/Purple/Whitesnake effort, and it's hard to disagree. Production is a little dry, it could've used some Dennis Ward production lube, but an otherwise enjoyable effort. Have to say though I think the first one fits David Readman's style better, but I'm still all over the 2013 release. (Still waiting on the 2nd David Readman solo cd supposedly started in 09, and the next PC 69 release).

review by François Couture
It caused a stir when it was announced: Steven Wilson (of Porcupine Tree and No-Man fame) was to release his first-ever full-length solo album. The first question to pop up was: why? After a couple decades of activity under his belt, and two handfuls of bands and projects past and present (including several solo outfits, like Bass Communion), why would he release an album under his own name, and what would that album be like?

Well, as it turned out, Insurgentes is basically a Porcupine Tree album in which Wilson wrote all the songs and made all the decisions, including the one to not include all current members of Porcupine Tree in the project. Is that a problem, fans might ask? Not at all. In fact, Insurgentes is an excellent slab of progressive-tinged alternative rock, and a logical next step from Fear of a Blank Planet, PT's last album at this point. The songwriting is sharp and punchy in the short tracks, and atmospheric and contrasted in the longer ones (the wall-of-guitar entry in "No Twilight Within the Courts of the Sun"), with maybe a tad bit more input from Wilson's experimental project Bass Communion filtering through in the textures department.

Despite featuring only Wilson and PT drummer Gavin Harrison, the leadoff track, "Harmony Korine," would have been perfect as a hit single for the next Porcupine Tree record. "Abandoner" is Wilson at his creepy best: stark electronica beat, aerial vocals, and twisted ambience (enhanced in the 5.1 surround mix version by a tricky placement of acoustic guitar attack and backward effect). Theo Travis guests on flute on this track. Other guest musicians include Dream Theater keyboardist Jordan Rudess delivering a stunning piano solo in "No Twilight Within the Courts of the Sun," King Crimson bassist Tony Levin, singer Clodagh Simonds (of Fovea Hex) adding wordless vocals to "Significant Other," and Michiyo Yagi on koto (a Japanese traditional zither-like instrument) on the title track.

Accessible yet boundary-pushing (in a pop/rock format), Insurgentes is one of Wilson's finer moments. And it must be heard in 5.1 surround sound for its full richness to be experienced, as the man has become a master of the surround mix.
