G3 – Live In Denver DVD Review

The Live In Denver concert was recorded from a stop on what is now the fifth G3 tour and was recorded at The Fillmore Auditorium, Denver, Colorado, on October 20, 2003. It is hard to believe that G3 has already completed five tours since its inception in 1996. I thought it was going to be a one-time thing, allowing tour ... Read More »

Simon & Garfunkel – Old Friends (Live On Stage) DVD Review

Growing up in the seventies, I was usually drawn more to the classic-rock and heavy-metal side of the tracks, than I was to the folk-rock movement of the times. At a very early age I was introduced, by my older brother, to an amazing variety of music from The Beatles, Steely Dan, Stevie Wonder, Santana and many others. Although I ... Read More »

Concert Review: Joey Belladonna 1/21/05

It was a cold night, hovering around the 0 degree mark. I arrived at the club, went to the door and waved in. I found a good spot to stand and bumped into a friend whom I run into often at these shows. We stood there and waited for the show to begin. We were there to see the former ... Read More »

Steve Hackett – Once Above A Time DVD Review

I must admit, I have not really followed Steve Hackett‘s solo career since he left Genesis around 1977. Although he was only in the band for about seven years, their string of albums from Foxtrot to The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway is one of the greatest runs of progressive-rock albums ever–matched only by, perhaps, the early seventies output of ...

Toto – 25th Anniversary (Live In Amsterdam) DVD Review

Live In Amsterdam was filmed during Toto‘s 25th Anniversary tour of 2002/2003, and presents the band in their strongest element – live in concert. Toto are not nearly as popular in the United States as they are in Europe, where relatively unknown progressive-rock bands can hold legendary status. A band like Toto can sell out large venues in places like ... Read More »

Gary Moore – Live At Montreux 1990 DVD Review

Belfast, Ireland’s Gary Moore has remained relatively unknown here in the United States. His popularity, and status as a guitar legend, has been much greater in Europe and Japan, which has been typical of many great musicians, unfortunately. Moore has been playing professionally since the late-sixties, and has appeared in numerous bands before focusing on his solo career around 1982, ... Read More »

Toronto Rocks DVD Review

Toronto Rocks was the massive benefit concert organized in support of the SARS relief effort for the city of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, which had been hit particularly hard by the outbreak. The concert went down on July 30, 2003, and was billed as "the largest ticketed single-day event in music history", as approximately 490,000 people were in attendance. This review ... Read More »

The Doobie Brothers – Live At Wolf Trap DVD Review

Talk about wanting to kick yourself in the ass! There I was, this spring, making my annual decision of which summer concerts to attend. Rush? Check. Yes & Dream Theater? Oh hell yeah! Styx & Peter Frampton? Why not. The Doobie Brothers at Wolf Trap? I only live about a half-hour from the place, but, damn, I’ve already spent all ... Read More »

Transatlantic – Live In Europe DVD Review

Transatlantic are easily one of the best of the current progressive-rock bands, since they are essentially a prog-rock supergroup. As a band, they are often better than their individual parts, which consist of Spock’s Beard – Neal Morse, Dream Theater – Mike Portnoy, The Flower Kings – Royne Stolt, and Marillion – Pete Traveres. I’m sure I’ll get much disagreement ... Read More »
