    The first time I saw Skid Row was opening for Bon Jovi. The next day, I bought Skid Row's debut. Big Guns and Piece of Me sold me.

    it also irritates me that Runaway gets so much play on local classic rock. I NEVER heard that song on the radio in the 80's but now it's in heavy rotation on classic rock. Revisionist history.
    Runaway was played quite a bit the first couple years but once they're big records come out it vanished.

    I understand management wanting to get VH in front of as many people as possible. Jovi fit that requirement.

    But that only matters if you are gonna keep coming back. They were never going to that. So, they shoulda just passed.

    New Jersey is a great album.

    The rest of their catalog I don't care for, even Slippery When Wet to me isn't that good.

    I wouldn't be so sure in '95. BJ wasn't as far removed from their peak as VH was at the time. I guess it would be a matter of perspective. To you and me, I'm sure VH blew them off the stage. LOL

    Dokken had a real good three album run.

    Tooth and Nail, Under Lock and Key, and Back for the Attack are really good.

    For me, especially Under Lock and Key. They perfected the mid-tempo rocker on it.

    Saw Dokken open for Twisted Sister on the Stay Hungry tour. I believe Y&T was also an opener for that show. My dad called me and said he won tickets to the show. I must've been 12 or 13 at the time, so he took me to the show. LOL I give him credit for doing that--couldn't have been an easy night for him.

    I remember going out and buying Tooth and Nail. I tried and tried, but Dokken never stuck with me.
    Queensryche was another band that never landed with me. I knew so many people that loved them.

    Queensryche is another band with a great three album run.

    Rage For Order, Operation: Mindcrime, and Empire. Great discs. Great live band too.

    Not the same band without DeGarmo.

    Slave to the Grind is a kick ass disc.

    There were numerous articles about that tour at the time in the European rock mags. According to Ed, he and Jon were friends and it was as simple as the two hatching it out on the deck of Jon's Malibu beach house one evening. Ed said he liked it because VH would be able to play to massive crowds and at the same time save money by not having to drag their huge production overseas.
