Sadly, I knew Cherone was in Van Halen AND JCS before reading all this.

My friend in high school was a big cheese metal fan, and I was subjected to a lot of it. Extreme isn't on the awful level of Skid Row, Warrant, or Mr. Big, but I never got into them.

I was a music store manager in Massachusetts way back when, and Extreme came to do an in-store appearance to promote one of their albums. This was in 1994 (I think) when they were losing their popularity. I recall the album bombed.

They were nice guys, though.

Wow, even though Sebastian Bach is a total douche, Skid Row was actually a very competent band...I mean Warrant, Winger totally sucked, but Skid Row (and even Mr. Big) was fairly decent...

Extreme...I dunno...Cherone was too 'fancy pants' for me to get into...

Between these two releases, however, Cherone established himself somewhat as a performer in his own right by earning favorable critical notices for his portryal of Jesus in a 1994 production of Jesus Christ Superstar.

Gary Cherone
I didn't know Gary did the role as well... interesting.

But Sebastian did play the role for a short stint...

Quote:
In early 2002, he became the host of VH1's Forever Wild. In October that same year, Sebastian was signed to perform in the national touring production of Jesus Christ Superstar and played the title role of Jesus until April 2003 alongside Superstar veteran Carl Anderson, when he was fired for alleged diva-like behavior. He has said if he ever did the show again, he would like to try the role of Judas Iscariot next time. A DVD video of live performances called Forever Wild was released in June 2004. That same year, he went on another tour of Jekyll and Hyde, reprising the title role(s).

Does anyone remember the Freddie Mercury tribute concert from 1992? Extreme had one of the strongest performances that night, and did a phenomenal job with their Queen medley.

Sebastian Bach/Skid Row were kind of cheesy, but to this day I still count I Remember You among my guilty pleasure favourites, and listen to it probably once a year. And I can't help but adore Bach a little for his role as Gil, the married rocker playing with much younger kids, on the final few seasons of Gilmore Girls.

Sadly, I must admit this as well.


Also, Poison was better than any of these bands.

I guess we part company after the Bach on Gilmore Girls agreement, because I never could stand Poison. Ew. They're the ultimate in cheese.

Yeah, Sebastian Bach will always be Gil to me too. I thought he was awesome in the role. Lane's band storylines were some of my favorites on the show throughout the years. Zack and Brian were hilarious.

Hep Alien FTW.

I always missed Dave, though. It was Dave she should have been with! Damn The OC!

I prefer Mr. Big to Poison.

although I only know like 2 songs by Mr. Big so I don't prefer them by much!

Alleged diva-like behavior! Nice.

I absolutely loved George Michael's set from that concert. And don't tell anyone, but I think his version of "Somebody to Love" tops the original.

The only song I know by Mr. Big is that cheesy "To Be With You" song, which I hate. As for Poison, I will admit to liking Talk Dirty to Me, which is on my iPod.

Skid Row is actually pretty good. They had a punk type thing going on that those other hair bands lacked. I liked Skid Row cause they were less polished.

Every Rose Has Its Thorn is a great song, and transcends the shitty genre it comes from (as does its follow-up brother Something to Believe In). I'd also argue that Poison, despite their ridiculous look, logo, names (Rikki Rockett? LOL) etc. were less glam musically than the other bands of their ilk, more blues-based and old school rock and roll than they're given credit for. C.C. Deville (the one who tried to hide his wide girth in a trenchcoat) was a pretty awesome guitarist, and Bret Michaels has one of the least-annoying voices in glam rock.

As I said, a friend of mine in high school was into all the glam bands, and I had to listen to the stuff all the time in his car. The only music I actually own from that period (besides Guns 'n Roses, who I don't consider part of the genre anyway) are two Poison albums, Flesh & Blood and the double-live album (okay, it's called "Swallow This", whatever), which from looking at the notch on the side was a promo because I don't remember buying it.

But yeah, pretty underrated stuff, and much more palatable to listen to as opposed to hearing it while watching their neon-green videos.

I defy you to not be impressed by this instrumental from Flesh and Blood (a very, very good album):

YouTube - Poison - Swampjuice (Soul - O)

You know this sounds EXACTLY like a Zeppelin outtake, so don't try to deny it.

On Arsenio:

YouTube - Poison - Something To Believe In live 1990

I used to have those first three Poison albums. All three had various points of good material. At some point in the 90's, I saved the songs I liked and ditched the albums.

It's okay to tell me... cos I agree with you! I think he has one of the best voices in pop music.

I'd like to take back my statement earlier about Mr. Big vs. Poison. I do enjoy a couple of songs by both bands and don't know much else to make that comparison!
