Haha, I can visualise that without knowing Emmy/Emma.
If that’s all it takes, maybe you should surrender your license. For the good of society.
I have to agree re: Dug's voice.
It hasn't sounded the same to me for almost a decade. In his prime, he is one of my favorite singers ever, and I have nothing but respect for him, but anyone who thinks he's still singing like he did on Faith, Hope, Love or Dogman needs their ears checked.
Also, I think the one thing we've all learned form this thread is that the old saying is true:
Misery loves company
So, don't feed the troll!
Insane player, but for me he blended in with all the other hair bands that had a hotshot guitarist. I did really like the Radar Love cover though. The whole band smoked on that one.
I remember that at least one of the guitar mags. surmised (by votes) that the solo in Wait was "that" years choice of #1 greatest solos.
Vito had a ton of respect back then. Even though the singer didn't.
Vito was always about melody. During a time when most were about flash , speed etc....
Of course, age changes things. Styles change too. My point was that George Lynch plays with a great singer now and I really enjoy the stuff they do together today. Disagree with me? Fine. I'd play with him today the way he sings now in a heartbeat and be glad for the chance.
Nothing wrong with whats happening here, IMO
First and foremost, music to me is an emotional thing, and Dug has kept his end up in making it that way. I'd hate to be one of those people for who it all boils down to "he hit higher notes with more power in 1988".
I know Dug well and i am very biased. Dug isn't 30 anymore and neither am I. What i do know is he has more talent on a bad pass than anything I've done my entire life. Watching him take a pass on bass, guitar, or vocals, is just inspiring. Not only is he a musicians musician but he is genuinely one of the kindest people i have ever met. This guy is a treasure and has a genuine gift. And no, its not 1988 anymore...
i'd hate to be one of those people that thought Glenn Danzig was doing anything like he was in '88.
I'm really digging the KXM stuff a lot.
loved his tone...im assuming he used one of those ADA MP1s. cheesy for some, but i still love that sound.
Never heard of that, so just Googled it.
Looks like it's now in a pedal:
Vito was awesome, but back in the days you couldn’t admit you liked White Lion. Same goes for Nelson, Winger and Vixon.
Forgot David Lee Roth
love that tele shaped ESP in the video complete with wire cavity and tan lines
Reb Beach from Winger is another one of the best players from the era and still is today. I LOVED his stint in Dokken also.
Another solo that always stuck with me like Wait was Steve Lynch in Turn up the Radio.
solo at 3:00
Is it just me, or does Vito invoke a LOT of Ritchie Blackmore persona here?
horrific... even the solo. this is what i'm talking about, the simplest paint-by-numbers songwriting with an out of place guitar solo slapped on top of it. that is the legacy of hair metal right there. this is just as bad as any of the "crap" that gets played today that all the 70s/80s guys complain about. this is absolutely bottom of the barrel, though somehow i actually remember this song and feel like i've heard it somewhat recently.
White Lion isn't bad at all compared to that, 'Wait' is a pretty decent song.
John - is there anything about Dokken you didn't love? And do you have any Dokken posters at your home today? (I'll admit my room used to be covered in EVH posters etc.... these days - nada one).
