Maybe Skillet will tour with AILD. Skillet will sell out for anyone.

Re: Neal Schon Blasts Bandmates for Meeting With Trump

I knew about the Revolution Saints project. I don't consider that to be a big thing for him since Jack Blades has Night Ranger obligations. I figure if Neal called Deen, he'd make himself available. I haven't heard about any other Deen projects but will look into it. I love Deen. I know he fell off ...

Re: Neal Schon Blasts Bandmates for Meeting With Trump

Steve Perry did a couple of songs with the Eels a year or two ago. They had to go down two whole steps with Journey music. Songs in A were dropped to F. Having said that, I'd go see Journey if Schon and Perry were to collaborate one more time. I've never seen Perry live. They could always bring in G...

Re: Neal Schon Blasts Bandmates for Meeting With Trump

Okay. I'll post my opinions being a huge Journey fan all my life. Herbie Herbert formed Journey by taking Neal Schon and Gregg Rolie from Santana and building a band around them with Ross Valory, George Tickner, and Aynsley Dunbar. I won't go into the chronology of band members in detail although I ...

Re: CPR

Pied Piper, I agree with you. The Classic Petra remakes were good. I liked the mix of instruments better especially with the songs around the Beat the System era. They still had keyboards but they didn't dominate the sound like the originals. Every instrument blended well. Every instrument had equal...

Re: CPR

I'm excited to hear the finished product although I don't particularly care about the entire song list. I could do without "For Annie" and "Dream On." There. I said it. Anyway, I agree with the potential and talent these five guys have. Still, as a lover of older music and performers, generally I do...

Re: CPR

I'd love to hear a modern version of "Hollow Eyes." Ronny could play Mark's synth part on bass. Also, I wonder if they would change any of the lyrics to fit anything going on in 2017. I'm really not thrilled about "Dream On," but, yet again, just my opinion. Other than that, "Road to Zion" and "Stan...

Re: CPR

So far I believe seven of the new songs are "Judas' Kiss," "It Is Finished," "Dream On," "All Over Me," "Praise Ye The Lord," "Not Of This World," and "For Annie." It's not a bad list. There are some on this list I'd replace with others, so hopefully the rest of the album will surprise me. That's ju...

Re: CPR

First of all, Ronny Cates wished me a happy birthday today. Yay! Second, I totally forgot what this thread was about, and I'm the one who started it. I think I was just trying to find out any info about CPR because, from what I've read over the years, some of you have the inside scoop. I'm excited t...

Re: CPR

I agree with Brent. I lost all interest in Petra after Wake-Up Call. Then again, the entire music landscape changed around that time, not necessarily for the better.

Re: CPR

I hate to not see Bob involved, but it is what it is. Other Volz Petra songs I'd like to hear remade: Judas' Kiss Not by Sight Stand Up Blinded Eyes Not of This World It Is Finished I'd like to hear what Hollow Eyes might sound like if written and recorded today. Another Schlitt era song I'd like to...

Re: CPR

Mark Kelly is an amazing bass player. When they did the DVD documentary, I enjoyed hearing things from his perspective since he was with Petra as they were breaking through and dealing with the negative criticism of the time. Ronny Cates is an amazing bass player. I love his energy. Even without all...

Re: CPR

As a bass player, I like both Mark and Ronny. Two distinct styles for two distinct Petra groups. I am intrigued to hear what songs this group will do considering Greg never recorded with the Ronny, John L., Louie group. Plus, there's no Bob. I know I'll get "hate" from some, but I hope it's better t...
