    sadly I'd have to say KISS fits this bill nowadays, their ridiculous multi-year, never-ending "farewell tour" where they ended up firing 2 of the original members (the whole reason they came back in the first place was the "re-united" angle) and they can't even recall the DEAD simple formula that made them what they are, so as to release at least ONE good rocking album... they WERE great and their early stuff will never go out of style in my books, but they are a sad joke now

    there's lots more but one is enough for now

    And GnR I thought kinda didn't exist, otherwise this list could be HUGE and feature stuff like Milli Vanilli and Gary Glitter

    This is a sad thread!

    For those of us that have been around for a while, it is fairly upsetting to see a band in their hayday and then their inevitable decline. I use to be hardcore into The Cure and I mean fanatical when I was younger. Had every single thing they put out, over three hundred concert bootlegs, followed them around the east coast on tour and even met them a few times. However, I have barely even listened to their last few albums and pay little to no attention to them anymore. The creativity has dried up and there is nothing left in my opinion. After a while this seems to happen to all bands and if we are lucky they get out of the game and leave us with the memory of how great they ARE. If not, they become a parody of themselves and we simply recall how great they WERE, although being tainted by what they became.

    You can never go home again I guess.

    but then we might have a better chance of seeing more SW films than that much ballyhooed album seeing the light of day
    I've never seen a bigger if.

    I wonder if it will have Buckethead and the duet with Shaquille O'Neal, or if Old Man Axl destroyed those tapes in one of his tape-destroying binges.

    Have you heard any of the songs from Chinese Democracy?! They are really really bad and almost sad to think that the songs were written and performed by a band that was pretty amazing back in the day. I was extremely disappointed with what I heard. Check it out for yourself:

    "Oh My God" from the End of Days soundtrack was enough to dash my hopes for it, and their little act on the MTV Music Awards a couple of years back certainly didn't help.

    Is Axle Rose the only original member of GnR left, or did Slash and Co. come back?

    There was an ad recently on VH-1 promoting the Def Leppard/Journey tour.
    Yo momma. That's right, I said "yo momma".

    I don't think any of those are songs from Chinese Democracy. Too many covers for one thing. From the same site I think this better of garbage to be found on Chinese Democracy. Not that I care, I've never liked G'nR.

    I think most hair metal have hit rock bottom and been there a while. Rat, Poison, W.A.S.P., Cinderella, Warren, Nelson, and the dozen or so more that I'm not thinking of at the moment. They all sound and looked a like. despite I brief revival of these crap in the late 90's this these bands have stayed out the public consciousness for the most part. Thank you Seattle.

    I still like Cinderella, they've got some great songs and are underrated. They're better than the way they get labelled but that's partly their fault for going along with the whole "look" of their era. I've seen them a few times in the past 5 years and I still think they're fun.

    Agreed on Cinderella Caesar, they are a really fine, complex band with a lot of really good bluesy numbers and I bet they would put on a great show- that Gypsy Road song that was their "big hit" is more like them doing a salty dog cover or something compared to most of the rest of their stuff, and that misrepresentation of what they actually were didn't help them at ALL, nor is it their fault- they honestly got better with each album (despite the fact they were not getting ANY promotion in that period after "long cold winter") unlike a lot of other bands truly deserving of the "rock Bottom" name...


    Here's another one.. Peter Frampton- he played the local casino last weekend, and the one comment I heard was basically "the band laughed a lot and had a great time, they know they haven't aged too well and so sdon't take themselves seriously anymore"
    So he's basically a caricature of himself and he loves it.. THAT is pretty low
