Re: New Petra Project

Well, some members of Petra were essentially hired guns, without equity, ownership, creative input or ability to borrow against royalties. There can be legal reasons (contracts, business arrangements) for not bringing new members in. It's all relative. Consider The Stones. Given how things turned o...

Re: New Petra Project

Some bands bring one or more additional players when they are playing live. The Paul Coleman Trio had a permanent 4th member who played electric guitar in their live shows, but he was always in the background and never got a spotlight even during his solos, which I always found a little odd. I neve...

Re: New Petra Project

Some bands bring one or more additional players when they are playing live. I think that is the way to go if, for instance, you cannot go without the extra guitar, the keyboards or whatever. The other stuff is just not really honest in any way. The sing a long concerts by John Schlitt and Greg X Vol...

[...] It definitely felt weird when they started More Power to Ya and you hear acoustic guitar while Bob is holding an electric, lol.

Re: New Petra Project

Having seen some of the videos from back then I got the impression it really meant a lot to Mark Kelly to be back again. Must have been rather strange when it was all over rather fast.

Re: New Petra Project

Thanks Executioner I seem to remember that there were some statements about tensions but I knew no details at all. It's really bad it had to turn out like that since showing up with something classic was exactly what the situation called for after years and years of different lineups. I do recognize...

Re: New Petra Project

They did formally retire. There were press releases, interviews, etc. They did a retirement tour and produced a DVD. They all had REAL life reasons not to continue (age, family, time, money, lack of demand, etc). According to them, they believe God told them it was time to end. If God wanted them t...

Re: New Petra Project

Honestly, if it takes work, go for it! Petra shouldn't go lazy here! We have to do our best for God, if that's really our purpose, and putting in effort if He even wants it to happen is the least we can do. That's my ten cents. The only thing is that Bob needs to think about funding some sort of a ...

Re: What if?

While I would not ask him the question I would like to know how he feels about the period in which he was not a touring member of Petra. Having read some interview during the farewell tour and perhaps before that in which he made statements about how hard it was to get interest in the band, I wonder...

Re: Guitarist Discussion

Another great Angus quote when asked what it was like to be one of the best guitarists in the world: "I'm not even the best guitarist in AC/DC." I would agree with him on that. I really like his playing and while admitting that it is a lot harder to play his stuff than you would initially think in ...

Re: Back to The Street recording dates

It's wonderful, just wonderful. Just great. Great. We are the best, just wonderful, some of the best people playing. There really isn't anyone better. We are just wonderful people. Our music is the best in the world. It's THE best. Nobbody plays music better than us. And the audience was the larges...

Re: Guitarist Discussion

With AC/DC it is different. They are easily recognizable because they always sound almost the same. As Angus Young once joked, "AC/DC only ever made one album. We just released it a dozen different times." Or when an interviewer claimed AC/DC had made X number of records that sounded exactly the sa...

Re: Guitarist Discussion

I play softer than AC/DC but I agree with your description of them. I prefer single coils and they react a bit different. I also agree with your description of Gilmour, but he is also able to get along with a rather cleanish sound and create the most beautiful tones. Always recognizable though his s...
