Re: Graham Bonnet Band album


Just watched that clip of lost and he is rough.
He was not like that when I saw him last week.

Eiricd said he relies on tracks, what is that ?

I've heard a lot of rumours lately about it. I saw him last November and if it is true then it's very well done. I was aware before the gig that they used pre-recorded backing vocals so wasn't surprised at the wall of sound. His band are great and he gave an excellent performance and it looked real to me (I was right at the front of the stage), but looks of course can be deceptive.

Re: Graham Bonnet Band album


Ozzy's had live vocals offstage for years, Robert Mason was one of them. Idk, I think I would have less of an issue with this if they were more forthcoming with this info otherwise it just seems deceptive. DC has a lot of help from Reb, Joel and Michael but those are all live which is fine...

Basically it's a form of fakery, using backing tracks, to compensate for the fact that his voice is now not up to the job. Personally I loathe that sort of thing. If they can't actually do it anymore, they shouldn't be doing it. Ok so the guy has to make a living, in which case at least be honest about what is going on and then everyone understands what they are paying to see. Its honest, rather than trying to hide it, which is basically just dishonest.

On shows like the X-Factor they claim this sort of sh1t is "vocal enhancement" to assist the artists, but it seems more like it's a declaration, that actually they haven't got the talent they claim to have. A pre-recorded vocal in a studio without the pressure of live performance and with the benefits of post production pitch correction and being able to repeat the same bit time after time to get it right is fine, for a studio recording. To then pass it off as a "live performance" is a complete con, which just demonstrates that it's not real.

To me using pre-recorded vocals of your self to support your live vocal, is nearly as bad, and that's really pretty bad, as these guys who play gigs with a guitar and backing tracks. They sing and perhaps strum along, and the backing track does most of the work. It's cheap entertainment for the venue as is effectively just a one man karaoke show, better known as sh1te!! Its killing the live local band scene quietly.

Live music should be exactly that completely 100% real, mistakes, warts and all.

this is not surprising, I'd have thought pre recorded vocals by ozzy himself, a total con of course, are you saying he has other backing vox off stage?

completely agree.

recall JLT accusing Coverdale of this some years back, now I'm not so sure about that given how awful he [sign in to see URL] as others have pointed out, he has a wall of backing vocalists, so not hiding anything.

I think it's much better than The Book

Reminds me quite often of the first Alcatrazz album

Bought it yesterday and I have listen to it today. It sounds really good!Much better than "The Book", not as "generic" in the sound and songwriting, I find it to be a good cross of Hard rock and Heavy metal. I really enjoy the keyboard player who always seems to appear at the right moment with the right sounds. The playing is tight and Graham sounds great too.

I haven't watched the dvd yet.
