Funnily enough, I discovered Ian Thornley live, when Big Wreck opened for Dream Theater in Toronto in 1997. I'm a huge DT fan and that show was my 1st time seeing DT as well.... so you can imagine how anxious I was and really didn't feel like having to go through an opening band! Gimme DT NOW! But, ...

Funny this talk of Punchline, I was listening to it the other day (had been a while since I listened to it) and I thought the same thing! That it'd totally fit if released these days. The stripped down style was such a departure from III Sides it turned off lots of fans. But hey, that's Nuno for you...

Yea, SIAJ is a really great song! I so wished Nuno would re-record the 1st MW album with Jeff Consi (the drummer that played on the 2nd MW album).

The third video (in Brasil) is fantastic, at the end, after the Bumblebee, he plays something that I can't describe... it's so "emotional" (for a lack of another word :lol:). It's called "Bumblebee Crash Landing" and was written to fit after Flight OTBB. And yes I run Extreme4Ever (even though I do...

Certainly dont agree with treating Black album as FM trash. The only albums I dont really like or listen to are Kill Em All/Reload/St Anger. The other 5 albums are all excellent in their own way (ok Load is the weakest of the 5 but still great songs on there, Bleeding Me ROCKS!). I basically learned...

TOJ is unfortunately dead.... it was only the band put together to tour the album Exit Elvis. Gary's next album will be a solo one with only the guitar player of TOJ left.

But since all the others are now playing togheter, WHY COULD NOT NUNO JOIN THEM AND RELEASE A NEW EXTREME CD??? :cry: THEN...

After when? It all depends on how you look at it. It's not the first time Extreme got back together since the official split in 1995-1996... :wink:

I agree though that they should repeat that soon somewhere else than in the Azores!
