Top New Band of 2009:
  1. Outloud
Top Three Bands or Artists of 2009:
  1. Gotthard – This band does it again in 2009. Starting at the tail end of 2008 they toured with Deep Purple, then worked with the legendary Jon Lord, released another killer record in "Need To Believe" and are currently out on tour with the band Europe. Another busy year for them. Now only if they could make their way to the USA for some shows (hint hint)!
  2. FOREIGNER – Their touring schedule was busy as ever and they finally released the long-awaited new studio album "Can’t Slow Down". And it was a pretty good one at that!
  3. AC/DC – These veterans had quite a year on the live front culminating with their return to stadiums in the USA. Way to go!
Comeback Band of 2009:

  • Foreigner– They’ve been doing it live with the new lineup for several years now but the new record "Can’t Slow Down" brings them all the way back in 2009!
Disappointment Of The Year
  • The cancellation of a few major and mid-level music festivals around the world this past summer and fall. Guess the weak economy caught up with some and it’s not good for an already faltering music industry. Hopefully 2010 will be a better year on all fronts.
