David Varney You could of actually included all of "its 5 o'clock somewhere" on this list, classic album in my opinion, I can still remember the radio2 special Slash/Dover did with acoustic guitars promoting the album, phenomenal!! If only things hadn't been so F'd up in GNR @ the time.....
Tom Harding John Firmino Slither? Anastasia? Halo? Nothing to Say? Superhuman?
Zoitsa Loft In addition to the GNR brilliance Slash's side projects have been totally underrated yet bullet proof. Shame the majority don't appreciate it bc songs like Gangnam Style & Despacito dominate and brainwash.
Joe Toth You left off By the Sword with Andrew Stockdale from Wolfmother on vocals.
Josephine Evangelista Aint Life Grand one of best rock albums... Jack Douglas should have produced Velvet Revolver.
Andy Witting Nice idea but the selection of songs is somewhat suspect.
Mackan Lindskog Velvet Revolver - Headspace and Do it For The Kids. Slash (and Myles) - Anastasia and Wicked Stone.
Martin Denney No Slither
Andrew Channon Where is anastasia? ??
Jeremy Morris Slither is my personal favourite post Guns track.
Ed Bennett Shit list, Anastasia and Slither?
Sigit Widodo Martadihardjo Dime Store Rock , is the most....

Scott Sharp Alive wasn't real. They were just like RUSH, they had to do something crazy to keep from losing their recording contract. Rush wrote a damn it all bad ass record, however; they dubbed in some extra guitar, something they never did since. Kiss played their songs live but with no audience. They played as many takes as they could and then did some Drum fills for Chris, the biggest is on Rock n Roll. They used some of Wicked Lesters hardest numbers, like She and then added in the huge sounding screaming audience, who went absolutely wild after each song. It worked. But it was typical of Gene, he has his moments of brilliance. So as a kid, when I heard it I liked it and was under the assumption that they were huge and I was missing out. Well, then came Destroyer, and that was real! Rest is history. They should have written more heavy material like they did in Wicked Lester. Pictures show Paul and Gene, and said their guitarist was mediocre, so I assume Paul and Gene wrote She and that's a bad ass jam.
Keith Haralson Honestly, it's terrible. They didn't sound good at all and the orchestra just doesn't work. The original scrapped Alive IV is MUCH better.
Ekul Annati What ever happened to the farewell tour that started in 2000? People seem to forget about that. Their show in Hartford that summer was advertised as the last CT show & then they came back that October!
Del Deuceman The album that took away Alive IV from Y2KISS Vancouver Millennium. I was there, and mad they did that.
Peter Smith The version of Deuce on this is Fucking great, in fact the first part is all good. The orchestral arrangement on most of the classics isn't that good, great expectations is a welcome surprise though.
Martin House Peter's low grade drumming sounded like a highschooler in his first garage band... Tommy's clean over improvised Ace solos and licks made it sound like a karaoke band which didn't help... Paul's horrible stage banters, and opera singing voice made every song sound like if Beyonce were singing... Gene was the only one on point during this time... Setlist sucked... Resurrecting the Alive outfits was cool, but Tommy looked like a woman with that wig and figure, Peter looked like an old overweight caricture if himself... Paul & Gene looked decent... Just overall not a great product of theirs... Could have been done with Ace & Eric, with a much more deeper setlist and would have been a real great fucking show... 2003 was like 1981 Kiss... Just not a good year for them... Plus the album was just over produced...
Kevin King 🎸 Sold 9 million copies on dvd. At least 9 million people liked it (me). But you just keep on hating. I really believe that is what has kept KISS alive is the haters. Free press and lots of real fans to put the haters to shame. Making a album for any musician is a business not love and magic. Record company makes the decision, they own you not the other way around. Gene and Paul understand the business. Paul said it best when he said here is an album, don't like that, here is another album, don't like that, here is another. Plus they are willing to try anything. Did you know Ray Charles made a country album? Do any of you remember Millie Vanillie? Total (everything about them albums, concerts etc.,) all FAKE. They did not write music, they did not sing not even in concert or on the album. FAKE, FAKE, fake, fake, fake but people ate it up and really, really believed. HA. Suckers. Did KISS need the orchestra, nope, but someone else did it before them so Monkey see, Monkey do. Or quite possible the record company said Do This. Neil Bogart told KISS to do Dynasty because he wanted them to do a disco album. Neil Bogart started disco. Neil Bogart head of Casablanca, boss man makes the decisions. But I guess I have some hate in me because I hate KISS quit making albums. I REALLY hate that. 🎸
Corey Slim Saw them on the world domination tour with aerosmith, Kiss owned it one last time with Peter criss, got confused with Tommy Thayer replacing Ace. Nailed it though.
Doug Canipe The symphonic arrangements are terrible. Like the dude spent 5 minutes on each song. You mean to tell me Black Diamond couldn't even bring something good out of him?
Marcus Jay Garrison They only have two songs worth a shit. By far the most over rated rock band to gave ever walked this planet
Pete Delgado First 2 live albums are the only KISS material i own. Only two worth owning.
Billy Taylor They're all fake, anyway.
Raúl Sam There are a lot of bootlegs way better than this crap
Raúl Sam I'm !a huge fan of Kiss, But I claim this piece of shit should have never been called "alive IV"
Jim Van Dyke It would've been better if Ace were playing.
Scott Sheagren Alive 1 and 2 are classics 3 and 4 ehhh.
Stephen McGrath The live show itself was the most enjoyable KISS gig I saw from any of their Australian tours. It will be hard to forget.
Callum Marshall-Douglas Only thing about this album that stands out for me is Paul's vocals on Strutter. Fantast version.
Clint Soren I thought alive 4 blew. Although classic kiss was the greatest rock group of all time
Richie Parsons One of the most boring concerts I have been to with the time taken to set up between sets just dragged on
Mario Guerra Only 10,000 copies were released on vinyl. I have #5,801.
Benoit Cote Finish it !!
Joe Klatt Jr. WHO?
Thomas Carr i have it and i think it's a great album
Dean Cassimatis I was there.

Kevin Johnstone Back in the late 70's to late '80's when huge international acts would not travel to any city in Canada, save for Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver, it was bands like Streetheart, Trooper, Harlequin, Toronto( the band!), Headpins, etc that filled our local clubs and arenas. All Canadian and all great acts. Each of one of these acts could fill a greatest hits package, but received very little attention stateside. Not sure why, since they had great songs and were great live. I seen Streetheart back in their heyday and just last summer at a classic Canadian lineup festival( with Prism, Harlequin, Headpins, April Wine and Honeymoon Suite). Kenny Shields still had the pipes and some would say were the best of the lot. This is a great loss to the Canadian music industry
Dean Mullin Most Americans won't know who Streetheart is but check out their music on YouTube ..well written songs and should have been bigger than they were
David Gray Question: Did Streetheart do the song " Smoking in the boys room "?
Scott Curtis Thanks UCR for covering this. A much under-appreciated band.
John Teegen Never heard of him or his band.
Lance Lumley I heard of the band after Chris Jericho's podcast about Canadian Bands. Very underrated band.
Karlo Davidsen Seen Streetheart many times over the last few years! Was going to see them 3 more times this final year. So sad he is gone!
Tim Wise Streetheart we're really popular in western Canada. More so than eastern Canada for sure
Randy Galant Street❤ one hell of a band. Kenny one hell of a singer. When I think of some of the shit in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame i just shake my head.
Paul Jabalee one of the great bands of the seventies canadian kenny could dish out some great tunes will be sadly missed
Dan Gibson He was a Canadian icon. RIP.
David PettyRocks Beaudin Great band awesome representatives of Winnipeg!
Judi Ciaramitaro RIP.
Martha Orozco Lora muy triste q saben acerca de su final. descanse en paz💐💐💐
Mary Galvan RIP Thoughts and prayers to the family
Debra Davis Rip sir
Stephane Lefebvre Very sad 😢 my sympathies to his loved ones
Frank Comer I remember streetheat
Steven LeBlanc He was a great performer.
Kevin Rollman Ouch.

Richard Glass What do you expect.. a totally different crowd. Not about peace, love, happiness. The sixties are gone. Now we live in a sick world.
Jason Worthley Woodstock 94 was more of a homage to the original. 1999 was where all the stakeholders decided to cash in on what they thought would be a gold mine. They ruined it for the future. blame those assholes
Patrick Bohler Because the original was so much better... All the peace and love bullshit, save the planet, blah, blah, blah... Yeah... http://www.reocities.com/oneida_co_ccl/eaststage.jpg
Matt Frazer Malcolm Morrison Google the 'Star Hotel' riots. It is a bar in Newcastle down the road from me. Absolutely awesome story. You can buy t-shirts saying "I survived the Star Hotel Riot". Man there was Aboriginal people turning over cop cars! If that's wrong then I don't wanna know right! Hahaha weeeeeeeeee
Richard O. Harris II Baby Boomers are greedy pigs.... And so full of shit. Hippies were created to destroy the counter culture, and hide the death of Paul... TEENAGE WASTELAND..... generations of wasted lives... FUCKERS...
Josh Billings I was the one person there that did not watch the red hot chili peppers and watched Megadeth. I remember after they played I went to my car and went to sleep and I missed all of the riots. Crazy looking back.
Dan Webster I was there and it did not have a give of peace and love. But I saw Limp Biskit-Rage Against the Machine- Metallica. With a lineup like that who wonders why what set the tone. Like the band's but the scene was toxic. The pit in the crowd was brutal. Had to watch year back
Largo Don Wen Original Woodstock was allegedly about peace and love. The first mistake organizers made since was inviting punk and nu-metal bands. Punk and nu-metal has never been about peace and love. It was a disaster waiting to happen.
Ron Lambert I was there, but had to leave before the riots. I had a good time, over all. I didn't see anything up to the point I left that would have led me to believe there would be the mess it turned out to be.
Roger Smith At Woodstock 99, a great Canadian band The Tragically Hip were boo'ed just because they are Canadian. Woodstock 99 deserved to burn to the ground.
Justin Wright Blame Fred Durst
Donna Perry Smith There was only ONE Woodstock!! This was more like a LaLapalooza!!
Randy Cardell There will never be another Woodstock,you can't re-produce it.
Silvie Rivera Best part of all was watching the Red Hot Chili Peppers singing Hendrix's "FIRE".... Phenomenal! 🔥
John Robinson Yes and ATMs charged you $10 and bottled water was $4...not to mention $200 tickets...
John McCarroll That event was attended by a crowd of assholes who had zero understanding of what the original Woodstock was all about.
Wyatt Brake This was written two years ago and I probably tagged you then, but... Aaron, Brett, Cammie
Frank Castiglione $10 dollars for a bottle of water would set anybody off !!!!! PROFIT HUNGRY Promoters got what they deserve
Stephen Kretschmer It was a fucking war zone. Bugged out tent dragging full of stuff in scene out Apocalypse Now at 3 am post RHCP
Guy William Yeager I went and managed not to trash, burn or loot. Elvis Costello was fantastic
John O'Malley The music was awful, the conditions were awful, the whole thing was a cluster••••.. peace, love and music it was not.
Bob Reidy I remember this happening. I wanted to go but I was only 12. Obviously too young. The lineup was incredible.
Tory Fish Idiots can't even enjoy themselves without wreaking havoc first !
Craig Johnson Bad behavior. Not just bad management. Figure it out libturds.
Bryan Berube Lineup was incredible. When it is 95-100 degrees, you cannot charge $8 for a water and not expect things to go wrong.

John Acre de Verde Been a fan of The Darkness from the debut. When they returned, after the break-up, they toured the US and stopped in Austin. Great live show from guys who still love that over-the-top 70's styled rock. Are they the greatest band, of course not (I am sure they would agree). But they do bring a level of fun and filth to rock.
Jay Feingold Jonathan Jimenez...... playing Mizner again?
Doug Canipe Their last album Last Of Our Kind was incredible....rock perfection. If this one is anywhere close, I'll be happy.
Tom Stigi Lol Darkness
Herman Biedenharn Absolutely love this band! Ever since their debut!!!!!
Robert Stapels Jr. The last 2 albums have been killer. I'm in.
Ervick Bovick Please no

Dave Mahoney "I used to do a little but a little wouldn't do it So the little got more and more I just keep tryin' to get a little better Said a little better than before" Great lyrics that really sum up addictions vicious cycle
Mike Roller Band financed it's beginnings selling heroin.
Nicholas John Payne Music for people who don't like Black Sabbath
Dave Broadie Much worse than heroin??
Scottie Eisele dancing with Joey Gladstone

Gary Clark Bohemian Rhapsody will be here long after Trump and his cronies will be
Michael James "I'm just a rich boy, nobody loves me.....he's just a rich boy from a rich family draining the swamp for posterity."
Candace Marie Baker I love everything Queen, but I have been corrupted by Samurai Jack 😂😂 https://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/samuraijack/images/b/ba/IMG_0398.JPG/revision/latest?cb=20170314081829
David Gibson He strikes me as a stereotypical self centered egotistical self riotous self centered Italian American alpha male. Just sayin
Nick Monkton Somewhere, people are spreading propaganda about how the rich are rich because they worked their arse off and are here to give and give to people whilst the poor are poor because they are lazy, selfish scum. Brian May must be pissing himself with laughter right now.
Kevin McGroary I see a little silhouetto of a man Scaramucci, Scaramucci will you do the Fandango Thunderbolt and lightning, very, very fright'ning me.
Bill Jacobs He looks like the kind of guy who used to own one of those brick phones in the 90s
Nathan Duke Cowardly buffoon, that's a perfect characterization if I ever heard one.
Cathy Jo Tchozewski Does he do the Fandango? (After he quits this job he could be Fandango's spokesperson!)
Aric Caplan Obvious. So glad to know that I'm not alone with this lyrical realization...
Jack McMahon Scaradouche looks like a used car salesman. So greasy.
Andrew Depedro Charlton ....the song is far too mainstream as it is. Keith Spicer is still a shitgibbon. Stop giving either of them further publicity.
Phillip Abbinante Maybe he'll do the "fandango" at press conferences 😀
Kevin Hill I prefer the William Shatner version of same myself here... 😉
Frank Cardinali Funny? How?
Susan McNeil Altomare I sang it right when I heard his name!
Clay Goebel Fucking despise that song.
Kathleen Reilly Mallia Look at that clown. 🤡🤡🤡🤡

Ben Ochoa Don Henley is one of rocks all time biggest dicks. Sad thing is, as time went on, it occurred to me that Glen Frey was an even bigger dick. Wouldn't pay to see either do shit. Shame. I like their music.
Michael James I had a summer fling in 1984 that I thought might last but it just started and stopped during the summer. It was a time of learning and the song Boys Of Summer reminds me of that time. The only other song that reminds me of her is the Night Ranger one When You Close Your Eyes (Do You Still Dream About Me) because I had a Chevrolet.
Dave Jones Everybody's knows is a great revenge song. Lots of Henley bitterness there.
Susan Pedersen Schmoker Whoever reads these comments skip over everything Ben Ochoa ~ he's an ANGRY person, 'nuf said. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DON HENLEY!!!
Andrew Willoughby theres a great song on a really poor album "inside job" called annabel that i love but yeah good list by a great songwriter
Phillip Abbinante "Just another worthless evening ". Great song and title.
Cheri Ramsay Certainly a talented songwriter who can paint a picture with his lyrics. I would add "Talking to the Moon" somewhere to that list.
Peter Lansdowne Boys of Summer . Perhaps , the greatest song of the 80s
Lani Milas Best of My Love, Desperado, Hotel California,,,he may have been with the Eagles then, but WOW! 🙂
Claudia Autran Love you Don Henley. You made beautiful music. Thank you for the peaceful easy feeling and happy birthday to you. Live on..
Matthew Runyon Good list. I'd move Dirty Laundry up a few notches, but I can go with this list.
Michael Kurdys Agree with your top two. That's a first. Usually your lists are garbage. Got a new "list" person?
Karen Johnson Happy 70th Birthday, Don Henley, my all time favorite singer/songwriter! You're the best!
Michael Feigin him and genn were so badass together
Jess Witham Brian May, Carlos Santana and Don Henley -- all turned 70 within days of each other.
Irma Sosa Heart of the Matter ....one of my favorites ....cus its all about forgiveness!!
Janice Russell Belated Happy birthday Don. Never tire of classics by this man. End of the innocence would be my dessert island disc 😎
Gregory Burt He's in concert tonight in Dallas with many, many guest appearances for his BD party.
Martin Barrows Asshole or not, solo or with Eagles, dude has written and performed some classic songs
Jeff Mydel Pretty accurate list although I'd have Sunset Grill & Heart Of The Matter higher up. All Henley music is absolutely incredible. Probably the best voice to ever sing a song. Other songs I would consider for this list would be Little Tin God & They're Not Here They're Not Coming.
Scott Landry the last resort
Kelly Shannon Weir Saw him last month in Boston...he sounded amazing!!! ❤️
Christine De Knikker Happy birthday Don Henley!
Marguerite Vaughan Love Don Henley!!
Brandon Harris I saw "Eagles founder Don Henley" and almost had a heart attack
