  1. It’s their keyboard player who is set up behind the amps. It used to be Russ Irwin, but it’s been a guy named Buck Johnson since 2014. But they do, and have had, a backup vocalist that helps Steven out on the high notes / harmonies.
  2. I’m out. Too much negativity here anymore. It makes reading these threads agonizing. Peace.
  3. There’s so many new bands releasing covers of classic rock songs right now they it’s just really sad. New rock bands can’t even write their own songs, for the most part.
  4. It’s literally blazing up the chart, which doesn’t shock me since the active rock format is just plain awful in this day and age. Radio has been begging for a song like this - it’s the antidote for garbage like Five Finger Death Punch.
  5. The active rock format is struggling for sure, but the Mediabase chart is the industry standard. That’s the one that counts when determining what a hit is on radio. If it goes to #1, which it likely will, it will legitimately be able to be referred to as a #1 hit on rock radio.
  6. It’s up to #6 on the Mediabase rock radio airplay chart this week - AKA the only chart that matters in the industry.
  7. Just got this week’s chart, and Shadow is up to #6 this week! Looks like GNR is going to have a #1 hit in a few weeks!
  8. Shadow is up to #9 this week!
  9. It should at the very least crack the top 10 next week.
  10. Shadow is rocketing up the rock radio airplay charts! From #22 to #12 this week - and the most added song with the biggest increase in spins for the second week in a row!
  11. Most likely a custom station edit where they either completely clipped it off themselves, or just told the automation system to start the track after the banter.
  12. It’s all good! The Mediabase chart isn’t really well known outside of industry circles, but if you work in radio, the goal is to be a reporting station to that chart as it goes a huge way in shaping chart positions and holds a level of prestige and influence.
  13. Billboard calculates things differently. I go by the Mediabase chart (industry chart) that is strictly and purely based on radio airplay. Some stations report to Billboard, but the biggest stations use Mediabase. In the eyes of the record labels, Mediabase is the chart that matters.
  14. No. This is the chart (Mediabase) that is strictly based on radio airplay.
  15. One of the perks of being in the business!
