First, the return of Loverboy. Then Def Leppard. Not to be outdone ...

    Wow. Coverdale-Page was a damn good album a decade ago. Can't imagine David's got too much left.

    Tawny Kitaen just started posing on a car hood and doesn't know why.

    It's called early-onset alzheimers... She's had it since she turned 60... :D

    How many true hits can we say Whitesnake had?

    For my money it's two... Still of the Night and Here I go Again... I may be forgetting one though... Not sure I consider Slide it in to be a hit...

    Wasn't "Is This Love?" a follow-up to Here I Go Again and a hit?

    In any event, lumping Def Leppard in with these two is a frickin' crime. Lep had much, much more of an impact than the other two combined. And it's not even close.

    1. Def Lep NEVER went away. They've released something every 2-3 years since Adrenalize.

    2. Def Lep was much more important than Loverboy and Whitesnake in every single fucking way.

    3. I will not buy this or Loverboy. Some things are better left in the '80s.

    4. Yes, Is This Love? was a big, huge follow-up hit to Here I Go Again.

    5. I'm going to go shoot myself now.

    Unfortunately, they peaked in '83.

    Hysteria sold more copies in '87-'89, but sadly you're right.

    I bet if they had a concert and the set list was just songs from High 'N' Dry and Pyromania they'd make a gazillion dollars. Hell, I'd pony up to see those has-beens for that.

    When I saw them a few years back, they played exactly one song from High N Dry, and wasn't the silly ballad hit.

    Most of the set list came from Pyromania and Hysteria.
