I only caught the second hour with Def Leppard and Kiss. I wasnt terribly impressed with either tribute performances. All-American Rejects are seriously a disgrace to music. The Kiss tribute could have been better also. Slash sounded pretty sloppy. The real Def Leppard was pretty good though. I caught the end of the NBA game instead of watching Kiss...

And since when does Jamie Presley try to sound black? She is HOT no doubt, but she sounds like an idiot.

I thought the best part was kiss' performance. A.A.R. were probably the best tribute doing Def Leppard, even though their regular music isnt that great. Also, that guy who did the vocals for Queen was pretty bad but it might just be because noone else sounds like Freddie Mercury.

slash was sloppy....but pulled it together at the end...

but i coudln't help but laugh at the all american rejects...there guitarist really thought he was the stuff.

the guy barely pulled off one of the most basic solos ever written during the classic/80's rock era. then why would you get a squeeky voiced clown sing a song sung by a guy with so much more range and personality in the way he sings.

p.s. rob zombies voice grated on me the entire song...i couldn't enjoy the decent guitar playing because he just kept screaming and crap...when slash started his solo i never heard the first 1/4 of it cause of that.

I learned that I don't like Paul Rodgers's voice at all.

Judas Priest was pretty good but Rob Halford's vocals were a little off (and he's usually excellent, even live).

Scott Ian jumping around like a maniac with the hatchet bass during the KISS tribute was pretty funny. Why was he playing bass anyway? They should have put him on guitar instead of Gilby Clarke and gotten someone else to play bass.

yeah i know...i was confused as to why he was playing bass...

and who the hell is gilby clark? the 2nd rhythm guitarist for GNR...come on.

they'd of done better getting duff mckagen to play bass and let scott play guitar if they just had to have mediocre (compared to other great rock musicians from that time period) musicians up there.

Scott Ian isn't mediocre, at least I don't think so. Anthrax is a great band.

did you read the () i put? in noway did i mean mediocre in that way. i meant compared to the likes of other great rock lead guitarists out there.

in the same way duff is a great bassist...but there are def. better ones out there they could get. thats what my analogy meant.

Well..I missed All American Rejects I was waiting all night to see 'em play..would've been a really nice laugh anyways, Def Lepard's lead guitar was trying too much to get the attention and even though he did 1 or 2 dive bombs on the guitar, he was pretty sloppy when he was kinda soloin at the end of "Rock of Ages"(I think it was Rock of Ages). I didn't like Queen much with Rodger's vocals but Priest was pretty good.

AAR played Photograph.

I was disgusted.

Also, you can tell that the show was geared for KISS. It might as well've been KISS Honors.

Also, KISS was the only band there with all the original members.

I think Priest had all their original members, too. It was a pretty good show, but am I the only one who noticed that Godsmack didn't pull any lead solos off of the covers for "Hell Bent For Leather" and "Electric Eye?"

I watched some band doing a tribute to Priest, and the guitarist had a wall of Diezel's behind him. And his tone still sucked.

That's all I saw, though.

**** man, I even saw a little news blurb about godsmack. they said they had to try so hard to pull off the original priest material and now you say they didn't even do the solos? this is the kinda stuff that makes me lose faith in modern music.

ever notice that when a modern band covers a classic rock or 80's rock song they do an "acoustic version."

where'd all the talent go...

Acutally, KISS didn't have all their original members...where was Peter Criss? And Ace only did the tribute before them. Tommy Thayer was playing guitar for them and Eric Carr on drums. The new KISS sounds great, dont get me wrong...but its nothing without Ace Frehley and Peter Criss. Gene's a PIMP though...

It may come on today. They've been showing replays of the show here lately. I'd say Priest was the only band with the original members. By the way, was AAR's lead guitarist playing Steve Clark's guitar? If so, he shouldn't have. Also, the singer really sucked on that "Photograph" song and their lead guitarist seemed like a show-off.

The drummer wasnt Eric Carr. He's dead. It was Eric Singer instead of Peter Criss. I found it stupid that Ace didn't just play with KISS for at LEAST this performance. I would love it if he and Peter got bak with the band.
