If Lost Horizons were not ok, I guess they'd talked about that. I'm pretty sure the band memebers are ok with it, (but of course I'm not them).
If anyone can sound a bit like Dave, it's Swan, (even though I'm well aware that a cover should _not_ sound like the original, but have its own qualities, which it also has from what I've heard) and besides in my opinion he's one of the best sleaze singers ever, so to choose him to sing a sensitive song is perfect.
Besides, Lost Horizons can be found in a collection called "Unreleased Demos" that is all over the Internet, so it's not only a home video on YT. I don't get all the negative stuff, people should be happy that so many bands want to honour Dave, to give him cred for their inspiration, because that's what it is.
Now, late spring has turned into summer 2011, but still no album. Does anyone have more news about when it will come?

P. fizzy Suxx wrote: About BlackRain I just can tell you that I chatted alot with Heinrich 2 years back before they released "license to thrill". And I have my opinion about him/them. They are not satisfied with their first record because it doesnt fit into their image anymore. They are as much sleaze as Tokio Hotel were in their prime lol. Heinrich told me that they always wanted to do sleaze rock but at the time they didnt knew how!!! I mean what is going on? There is no "know how" you just make it right, simple as that. When I want to write a glam rock song, I write it, its not hard at all. The first record actually flopped no one cared, but that was around the time when Sleaze Rock was getting more popular (2007/2008) with hundreds of new bands especially in Sweden. And I truly believe that they saw that and tried to get on the train.
I Agree 100% !

About Lepard. For me it seems false everything with Crashdiet. That they kept the name, the logo change, covering an unreleased demo etc...
You might ask why am I still in this forum then, if I think Crashdiet should be no longer? Well I just can say that Martin, Peter, Eric and Simon really showed that they are great musicians and that they all have loads of talent, and that I really like the Generation Wild record. Therefore I am still a "Fan" of their music if you want so. But I feel things should be handled different sometimes, and for me it just feels wrong to agree to certain things. Of course I have no background to Dave Lepard, but over the years Ive heard alot from both sides and I have made up my own opinion, without everyone telling me what to think.
About BlackRain, I gave them a second chance and I didnt liked it. They are way too arrogant, and with this behaviour they've lost me as a fan. And I just cant connect with them anymore.
