Guns N' Roses - 2 Classic Albums Under Review: Use Your Illusion I and II DVD
Review by Gary Hill
Guns N’ Roses were the bad boy rock band to beat in the 1980’s. Incredibly influential, they were the latter day extension of the Rolling Stones and Aerosmith.

Fans of Lemmy should definitely dig this DVD. And, really, who can possibly know who Lemmy is without being a fan of Lemmy?

Alice Cooper - A Fistful of Alice
Review by Gary Hill
It has been said that this release is redundant because hard-core Alice Cooper fans already have a solid live album in The Alice Cooper Show. However, I find that this release is a a considerably better recording, and that the performance presented herein is superior to that one.

Various Artists - A Tribute To Les Paul: Live From Universal Studios Hollywood DVD
Review by Gary Hill

Come for the performances, stay for the documentary type stuff. A big chunk of this is all about some incredible live performances with musicians ranging from Joe Satriani to Buddy Guy to Slash, Neal Schon and Steve Lukather and more.

Alice Cooper - Along Came A Spider
Review by Gary Hill
Alice Cooper is a performer who has (in the opinion of this reviewer) always had a problem with consistency. Sometimes it’s represented with an album that has some awesome music, but a few songs that leave you scratching your head.

Derek Sherinian - Blood of the Snake
Review by Gary Hill
Derek Sherinian always seems to be looking for new ways to stretch out musically and this time around he's brought a lot of friends on board to help him in that process. The end result is Blood of the Snake, a disc that is arguably his most diverse. It also might well be his strongest album ever.

Doro - Calling the Wild
Review by Gary Hill
In the 1980’s Doro Pesch fronted the German metal band Warlock. That band is no more, but Doro has kept her career and love of metal alive through the years. This new disc is her first release in the US in many years, but she has continued releasing albums in Europe the entire time.

Graham Bonnet - Flying...Not Falling 1991-1999
Review by Gary Hill
This new three-disc set from Graham Bonnet is pretty darned good. I've included it under metal because two of the three discs here fit there.

This set has some killer music. It might not be quite metal, but it might be.

Alice Cooper - Hey Stoopid
Review by Gary Hill

This album showcases a metal perpective on the classic Cooper sound and also shows prog tendencies in several places. Alice is joined on this album by many musicians, including several very notables guests (Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Ozzy Osbourne and others).

Various Artists - Les Paul and Friends: Tribute to a Legend
Review by Gary Hill
When you hear “tribute album” you usually think of a disc that features a number of artists playing songs by the artist to whom the disc is being dedicated. Well, this one has a bit of a twist.

Chic - Live at the Budokan DVD
Review by Gary Hill
Remembering the days when rock music was seemingly fighting with disco for its very survival – or at least it seemed like it. Disco really felt like some evil monster.
