There's good news Glam world! Reckless Love will release Spirit this September. Spirit will be the band's third album. Needless to say I'm very excited about this because I'm crazy about Reckless Love and I think they are one of the strongest new Glam acts going these days. I'll be a first day buyer of this new one for sure.

How ironic to listen to this INCREDIBLE song titled "On The Radio", since that's the last place you'll ever hear them, which is one of The Biggest Crimes in Rock & Roll History!

There is SO MUCH New Music out there like Reckless Love to fill the airwaves, especially when mixed with all the stuff on HairNation. Why they don't just add bands like Reckless Love into the mix is beyond me but why not get SIRIUS to start a whole new channel dedicated to new Glam Metal and Hard Rock like them? but please, no Modern Metal" or whatever they call that crap.

I hear ya Metalboy. We should start our own channel. We could make millions.

Metalboy points out a sad truth. Reckless Love is one of the momst radio-friendly bands ever, & yet you will probably never hear them there. They need to snag the opening slot on a big tour like KISS or Def Leppard, if the are ever going to make heardway in America. They couldn't be more screwed record deal-wise... they're signed to Universal/MCA.

MCA: Musical Cemetery of America.

You know what the difference between the Titanic & MCA is?

The Titanic had a band with a vibrant career on board.

And... if you think "On The Radio" is a "radio friendly" tune, check out "HOT". Why that song isn't all over summer radio, I have no idea.

Try as I may, I really can't get into this band. To me the vocals are very weak. I'll continue to give it a try....

I couldn't agree with you more, nikki. but, please, blame the "rock" experts for the committed crime. those "experts"; that not only whom you worked for, but also subsequently employed...and, who never wanted to "parent" (I mean rock) in the first place. as tome keifer screams..."If you're living in a glass house...(fletch sings): please throw your rocks at me!

Just a question -- And I hear ya, Ace, on Universal MCA. That label signed Bad City a couple of years ago out of Chicago and those guys never broke, either.

But here's something to consider...

How come The Darkness makes it big but bands like Reckless Love don't. It's about the frontman and the material. Reckless Love are great -- absolutely one of my faves but the difference is The Darkness stand out more as their stuff is more unique and their singer is over the top.

Reckless Love, as much as I recklessly love 'em, just aren't on the same level in delivering memorable stuff in a memorable way. Darkness has got it all in their lyrics -- Imagination, Humor, Wit, Intelligence, Cleverness, Irony, etc., whereas Reckless Love are a little too generic and one dimensional.

Plus, Darkness might be a little hipper, throwing back to 70's with a kind of Queen meets AC/DC sound. Reckless Love are mining the 80's, aping Def Leppard. Don't get me wrong -- That's my favorite stuff, but the appeal isn't as broad these days.

Of course, if Radio was what it was back in the 80's and early 90's, there would be room for everybody -- Clever or dimwitted.

F Yeah, these guys are amazing. Their albums get better and better with every listen. These guys need to get to US! Just received my copy of chase the ace in the mail yesterday, thoroughly impressed. We need bands like this here!

ah, my (used-to-be) dear friend. "big" is in the eye of the beholder. regardless of how "big" bret michaels gets, he still (better) uses roth as a barometer; moreso during roth's downs than his ups. keifer still uses tyler as his barometer. jagger still uses lennon. axl uses, well who cares, he lost "it" years ago and really never had 'it' to begin with as he never understood the all-important first rule: you're only as good as those around you.

let's get back to a fundamental opinion I had when this website first started and the webmistress asked what we wanted. If you recall (look into your files), I asked for bands that should've "made it", but didn't- the bands that were more "obscure" in the 80's and then I reflected on the word obscure and wrote that 'obscure' might not necessarily be the correct word as it puts a negative connotation as to why the band might not have become as big as they should have- as many factors interplay.

I was asking for this website to give those bands the credit that they deserve(d). Perhaps that's why I got so pissed when you co-opted what I started on this blog. To me, I saw it as opportunistic. This opinion of mine is truly one dimensional.

But, I saw other people in certain circles (your circles included) becoming "big" because of them being one-dimensional opportunists and dictating to the 'ace-steele's' of the world as to how to rock; regulating him and the other posters on this blog to relish in their unique brand of rock and roll.

again, "big" is in the eye of the beholder. I might not be a big rock star (forensic therapist), but I am a big rock star- a kick ass foster/adoptive dad and I will kick anyone's ass who tries to hold a candle to me on that stage.
