The Jesus Music movie trailer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsrrgSoForE I was hoping someone else would have touched on this by now. How much credit will the earliest pioneers of CCM get? Without Petra, there would be no Newsboys, Skillet, Stryper, etc. I feel like they'll get "the shaft" just like with the CCM anniversary spe...

Re: Favorite bands

Winger (seriously) I always liked Winger! Out of the blue, I had Madeleine running through my head just yesterday, and I haven't heard that song in a long time. As somewhat of a bassist and even lesser of a vocalist, bands with a bassist/lead vocalist appealed to me. Rush, The Police, etc. Winger c...

Re: New Petra Project

I don't post very often, but for some reason I felt the need this time. I felt like Petra was done with Wake-Up Call. I like a couple of tracks from No Doubt, but I wasn't crazy about the direction it went musically. I know I'll have people wanting to ostracize me for my next comment, but it is my o...

Re: Steve Perry

I'm a huge Steve Perry/Journey fan. I'm glad he was able to record another album, but it's just not that good. Anyone who walks away from music for a long period of time struggles to get back into shape. The difference between instruments and vocals is you can normally get your fingers/hands/whateve...

Re: Favourite Petra Album 1990-2003

This is an odd grouping, perhaps you should have done 90-99. It's not fair to pit JH against Petra prime... Petra Prime, sounds like another best of album? Petra Prime. Sounds like one of those Transformers where the five robots join to make one huge, amazing robot. I feel another discussion coming...

Re: CPR

I listened to the samples today. To be honest, and this is just my opinion, I'm not too impressed. I see no reason in new recordings of old songs. The song choices don't really do much for me either. The songs I don't mind being redone don't sound that great. I also see no reason for "For Annie" or ...

Re: Stryper question

Sorry. I just noticed Brent posted the Perry Richardson announcement. For some reason, his post didn't show up until I posted the news. Strange.

Yesterday Stryper announced Perry Richardson (FireHouse, Craig Morgan, Trace Adkins) has been hired as the new bass player.

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 ...
