  1. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators - Appreciation Thread

    http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/alter-bridge-to-release-walk-the-sky-album-in-october-european-tour-with-shinedown-sevendust-announced/ ALTER BRIDGE will release its sixth studio album, "Walk The Sky", on October 18 via Napalm Records. The 14-track opus marks a creative highpoint for the quartet comprised of Myles Kennedy on vocals/guitars, Mark Tremonti on guitars/vocals, Brian Marshall on bass and Scott Phillips on drums. "Walk The Sky" is a complete career retrospective drawing upon elements from each of the band's previous releases to create something new. Recorded in a fresh way, "Walk The Sky" was born from complete song ideas created by Kennedy and Tremonti. This material was then worked on by the entire band to develop "Walk The Sky" into a unique listening experience. This varies from the band's previous method, going back to their sophomore release, "Blackbird", where Kennedy and Tremonti would combine individual ideas and riffs alongside producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette to form some of their most revered songs. From the opening vocal melody on "One Life" to the moving finale of "Dying Light", ALTER BRIDGE has created a formidable addition to its music catalog. Songs like "Godspeed", "Native Son" and "Walking On The Sky" are sure to be early additions to the live set. "Forever Falling" also marks a lead vocal return from Tremonti, with Kennedy taking the chorus, as done previously on the "Fortress" favorite "Waters Rising". The first single, "Wouldn't You Rather", will be released in two weeks. "Walk The Sky" track listing: 01. One Life 02. Wouldn't You Rather 03. In The Deep 04. Godspeed 05. Native Son 06. Take The Crown 07. Indoctrination 08. The Bitter End 09. Pay No Mind 10. Forever Falling 11. Clear Horizon 12. Walking On The Sky 13. Tear Us Apart 14. Dying Light ALTER BRIDGE will head out on a worldwide tour beginning in September. The trek will launch in the United States before heading over to Europe to close out 2019. The European dates scheduled for November and December will feature support from SHINEDOWN, SEVENDUST and THE RAVEN AGE. The North American dates will be announced in the near future. The band will also take part in the inaugural Exit 111 festival in October and the sold-out 2020 sailing of ShipRocked.

    New Alter Bridge album is called “Walk The Sky,” out October 18. Obviously we know nothing about the music yet but I like the title. Apparently they took a different approach to songwriting for some of the tracks this time around too
  3. Myles Kennedy.
  4. Why are so many people here thinking GNR is doing a single for the Terminator movie? There is absolutely no indication of that. It's just the delusions of a fanbase starving for any sign of new material...get a grip, folks...
  5. I'd like to see Frank Ferrer take a leading role in the songwriting of the new album. Slash and Duff can have some input but it should be Frank's vision most of all. He can teach Axl which notes to sing and allow some lyrical input from Axl.
  6. I'd like to see an awkward "backstage" photo of Myles & Axl together. Like when SMKC and Creed were on the same bill and Myles met Scott Stapp:
  7. But they could be working on new music now. Myles is in the studio with AB. I'm sure Slash is keeping busy somehow.

    The thing that was uncool about Creed was the Jesus impersonator frontman, Scott Stapp. I was in high school when Creed was huge and most people hated them, probably more than Nickelback. But I don't recall anyone saying the guitar player or bass player or drummer was stupid or uncool. I was and still am a fan of Creed's music, just the instrumentals -- I can't stand Stapp's voice, lyrics or personality. So I don't listen to Creed at all anymore but the music on "My Own Prison" and "Human Clay" especially is great. Amazing riffs. I think the songs "Faceless Man" and "To Whom It May Concern" are great 1990s-era tunes. Mark Tremonti wrote all of the music and most of the melodies for Creed songs, including the mega hits. All Stapp did was put his stupid Jesus lyrics on it. Tremonti has gone on to produce a very impressive catalog with Alter Bridge (recording sixth album now) and four very solid solo albums under his own name. Stapp has released several solo albums that absolutely nobody has listened to. He's awful. That's what made Creed uncool. If by "cool" you're talking looks/attire, well, I don't care about that. As a rock fan, I think a talented and prolific musician is cool. So count me in the camp that says Alter Bridge is cool, just like the many other rock bands I like, including GNR and SMKC.
  9. So Myles is official working on a new Alter Bridge album Knowing Slash is a workaholic, I think it's a safe bet he's taking this time to work with Axl, Duff and the gang on some GNR material before the final leg of the Living The Dream tour.
  10. Fortus should be replaced with....Myles Kennedy
  11. Myles is on the album. The song didn't impress me much, though. Not as good as AB, SMKC or MK solo record.
  12. Will we ever hear SMKC cover of "Rocket Man"?

    Same here. I thought Myles sounded great on the "Levon" cover he did during his solo tour:
  13. It's been reported that SMKC covered Elton John's "Rocket Man" for a documentary called "Stuntman." There are even pictures of them in the studio - https://gnrcentral.com/2018/04/16/remember-how-slash-and-myles-kennedy-were-going-to-record-elton-johns-rocket-man-a-few-years-ago-well-it-maybe-coming-out-soon/ The IMDB page for the documentary says it was released last September -- https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6539830/ But I can't find the film anywhere, and I certainly can't find the song. Anyone think we'll ever hear this? It'd be a shame if not, since it apparently has already been recorded.
