I thought it was good song. Mark has a great voice, love the Halfway There album. Yep, Shane made me smile (dorky Dad powers activate). Thank you PterCriss.

Brilliant song and fantastic example of the kind of solos Vinnie could've laid down had he not been hell bent on being completely over the top all the time.

I don't understand these type of videos though, why am I looking at this guy watching the video?!

I do generally agree. I especially detest most “reaction” videos, which are all so overplayed. Cheap way for people to ride the coattails of someone else’s creativity while only needing to mimic the behavior of other attention-starved YouTube brats.

But I like Shane Diablo — he’s good at what he does.

Nice verse, pre chorus, but the main chorus is very very poor. Clumsy and average.

As much as vv doesn't like mark slaughter I feel that they worked perfectly together in the studio. I think because mark isn't the natural choice for vv it works even better.
I actually would say the Vinnie / Slaughter combo is better than vv / paul Stanley and vv / Robert

Great video by Nigel Dick

And no... that was not Bobbie Brown in the video. That gorgeous girl was Donna Ysrael (and I had her # back then). Super hot

The video got very good rotation on MTV back then.

Shame "Love Kills" came out less than a month later and took its play away...... shame there couldn't have been more time between them but Freddie did have a release date.


I think Mark gave the Tony Alamo "Vegas" jacket to his mom. I saw one at the Golden Nugget for sale back then and I think they wanted $1200 to $1500 for it.
I can't remember the name of the guy who added some stuff to the front of the Alamo jacket and I believe he was the same one who did Marks Patrick Nagel drawing jacket as well.

Speaking of apparel, the shirt Vinnie was wearing in this video was on display at the Birthday Bash. I believe it will be there for the Christmas event, too.

Not even slightly unfortunately. Vinnie`s wokred on some great songs, with great hooks, but That Time Of Year`s chorus has always felt clumsy and rushed to me.

Cookie cutter bullshit. No different than a million other interchangeable bands at that time.

I disagree completely. Very catchy hook with great melody in the chorus.

They sold a TON of those jackets back in the late 80's and early 90's and for a ton of money at the time.

Don King still wears the United States one
