What happened to make one of the band's wildest supporters vow to never pay to see them live ever again? Click that red raw link to find out....

Neal-Schon-Calling-176pxYou probably know him best as the guitarist and mainstay of American AOR giants Journey, but behind the super slick stadium rock anthems and sugar sweet balladry of that band still lies a six stringer who likes to noodle away with the best of them, and let's not forget Neal was also once in Santana.  Russ P gets the calling (from URHQ) to review this the latest solo album from the guitar maestro, to see if it really is a record raised on radio or simply one that lasts for an infinity.

Lynyrd-Skynyrd-Dyin-Breed-176pxInitially released last month as one of those fanpack magazine/CD type things that seem to be all the rage right now, 'Last Of A Dyin' Breed' the latest album by Southern rock legends Lynyrd Skynyrd appeared to an easy target for ridicule from the mainstream rock press at the time of its release, but being something of a fanboy Russ P asked us if he could give you his take and a new perspective on an album that he says proves there is life in the old dogs yet.
