Mötley Crüe — Live Wire 18. . In fact, Winger the band was Hill's creation and such deserves a bit of the jabs. The presentation of the album is superbe too-black digipack and fits perfectly with the compositions! I´ve Been in Love Before — Cutting Crew 9. Jeez, I do miss all those hard rock days.
Winger is an American glam metal, hard rock band formed in New York City that gained popularity during the late 1980s and early 1990s. George Benson — The Ghetto 07. The band broke up in 1994, but reunited in 2001 for several successful tours. Jimmy Page — No Quarter 1. Judas Priest — Breaking the Law 02.
Motörhead — Ace of Spades 11. Quiet Riot — Metal Health 36. I love all their albums and this one is also surely loved by many glam fans. Megadeth — Peace Sells 12. Rage Against the Machine — Bulls on Parade 16. As the music scene changed in the early to mid-1990s due to the popularity of grunge, the band faded after their third release Pull.
Alice in Chains — Man in the Box 20. Iron Maiden — Run to the Hills 28. The slow songs are close to perfection and are so sensitive and beautiful-almost breathtaking! Slipknot — Wait and Bleed 37. Reb Beach is the ultimate highlight of the band but Kip Winger's warm voice is unique, calming, and comfortably blended well with their music. Slayer — Raining Blood 09. The Buggles - Clean 01.
Another surprise output from this band, they went a bit darker here. I Remember You — Skid Row 5. Beach's solo was one of the more impressive I've ever seen. Miles Away — Winger 13. Willie Nelson — The Thrill is Gone 13. But the chops of the players and especially the shred guitar are what elevated the album to more metal-minded interests.
I always close my eyes and relive those days when I play this disc at night. Accept — Balls to the Wall 39. Reb Beach had been a fave of mastermind Beau Hill already. This is great, since I like dark. All the compositions are at a very high level and Reb's solos are fantastic too! I saw Winger on this tour as part of a triple bill, the first rock concert I attended.
Metallica — Master of Puppets 04. John Lee Hooker — One Bourbon, One Schotch, One Beer 10. So all our respect to Mr Kip Winger and the other 3 outstanding musicians that made such an inspired cd in 2009 and the hope that they still have many bullets to be shot in the future! Although probably it would be less-commercial for their record sale. Behind Blue Eyes — Limp Bizkit 6. Ozzy Osbourne — Crazy Train 10. Marilyn Manson — The Beautiful People 29.
Winger is one of the few bands that never disappointed me. Kip's voice never sounded better and the production is awesome! Solid Heirs to Journey's Throne People often forget that Journey started as a group of young Santana alumni and that the players were actually really talented musicians. Dio — Rainbow in the Dark 14. It's trully sensational,all compositions are so damn well worked and the solos of Reb Beach are stellar! System of a Down — Toxicity 15. I think, the last 2 tracks in this record are great album closers. It's 100 % commercial,but that's it's charm-it perfectly combines the hard rock riffs with great melodies and choruses. Metallica — Enter Sandman 23.
Anthrax — Caught in a Mosh 30. He gets some great spots throughout the album, but this solo is his legacy. Steve Vai — For the Love of God 06. But for those of us who like glam metal with plenty of guitar chops, Winger was a tantalizing band. Under the Same Sun — Scorpions 8. Angel City - Can't Shake It 01. All had done session work before, with Rod Morgenstern having a big gig with Steve Morse's Dregs.
Scorpions — Rock You Like a Hurricane 32. I Live My Life for Love — Firehouse 10. Skid Row — Slave to the Grind 19. J J Cale — Cocaine 04. Back to Fun - Comment Ça Va 01. Muddy Waters — I Just Want to Make Love to You 12.
