Trunk says, “Joe was great to have as a guest. We are all friends and fans of his and have wanted him since we started taping the show. His personality and great stories made for a killer episode.”

    The guy can be quite hilarious at times, both in a good way and in a not so good way…

    I actually like the guy ! He´s got a great voice and certainlly has his place in the hard rock history but……If only he could rely more on his own material, it´s quite fine in my book ! It wouldn´t hurt his cred if the poofy stage manners of his could be left in the closet either, we had Freddie Mercury for that !!! ROCK ON !!!

    I think the guy has confidence in himself which rubs some the wrong way. JLT has talent and I believe to be a straight shooter. Like him or not, Slaves/Masters rivals any of the post 84′ re-union albums. If I am not mistaken, RB hired JLT at one time because he sounds somewhat like Paul Rogers.

    Joe has a great voice, can sing in time and in tune. Was chosen by Ritchie Blackmore twice, and Yngwie Malmsteen. So whats now to like?

    @4 & @5 Well put guys, you made some valid points.

    JLT puts his foot in his mouth once in a while (who doesn’t) and comes off as cocky, but lets face he can sing and IMHO, OTR is doing well and mostly with him at the helm.
    Wish they would come to the US

    Hopefully due to the pressure of his past collaboration buddy Glenn Hughes working diligently on a Real Band..”Black Country” and an album of ‘Original Material’, he will buckle under and do a record with OTR. How perfect would that be? Whitesnake, Hughes, and then JLT, all ex-Purple singers flooding us with New Music to listen to….then finally, Purple puts it icing on the cake and releases theirs…..

    How is that for Optimism, huh??

    Now also, to sweeten the pot to an even more Monstrous Level, Rod Evens resurrects ‘Captain Beyond’ and fills the final piece to the puzzle.

    I know, pie in the sky, but you have to admit……not a bad scenario at all huh?

    @10 @11 Can’t agree with you more, Tracy…

    cheers for the optimism, there’s never too much of that around. Keep on rockin’, “old man” 🙂

    Missed out again.
    Is there a relisten section of THIS time available?

    purplepriest1965 says:

    Well, I found it.

    Its not something of worth.

    JLT acts professional but the context in which he gets to say a word or 2 was completely chaotic and rubbish.

    It looks like the presenters of the show think a lot of themselves and the whole set up is a tsunami of sound without much substance.

    Unfortunately a couple of members of “Captain Beyond” have passed away although there have been a couple of reissues and some live material and i must admit i still think Joe has a great voice, he may not be everyone’s cup of tea but i do look forward to his new album in May. Although his music may not be as harder edged he can still rock out with the best of them.
