    I'm quite excited for this. And I'm not even much of a Dirkschneider fan. It just feels fresh. The music is written along with the Musikkorps conductor rather than the orchestration being arranged on top of a finished song.

    I did not expect this to be a tie.

    BEST BAND EVER: Drummers, Round 107; Top 64

    Favorite does not equal best, yeah (I did notice it said vocalist at first). So I voted for Lars. Neil is awesome, and a much better drummer than Lars. But Lars has a way of finding the right, accessible groove, and his sense of doing fills is just so charmingly off. I enjoy listening to his...

    Can this still be real or just some crazy dream?

    Was the support band Schaffer doing a lyrics-to-music readthrough of IE songs? Now that's a nightmare. :D

    Tell that to Phil Lynnot, Freddie or Geoff Tate's current throat and sense of pitch.

    No, but he'd polish the turd and kick ass live. The latter is good enough for me at this point.

    BEST BAND EVER: Drummers, Round 107; Top 64

    That's a completely different style of singing though, than what he applied in the 70's. Which is also what I love about Halford. He has reinvented himself countless of times. I'm myself partial to his mid 80's and 2000-2001 singing.

    Yes, she is saying she could make him better, also in the sense that he has the most potential of the five.
