Hi paulw, IMO, if they stopped now, even for just one year, they would throw away what they have built so far with so much dedication and efforts as well. Joey's voice is good enough to win over the majority of others!
I think they know they cannot reach that explosive success they had in the 80's anymore, because only very young bands can aim at that. But then these young bands should prove to resist for more than one or two records. Europe have built up and grown up in a steady and consistent way. I don't personally think so many bands succeeded in doing the same...but if you stay out for a while, then you don't know if you can get in again! And who better than Europe themselves know this lesson?
I agree : they MUSTN'T stop now, or else they'll loose all the benefits of their hard work.
Personnaly, I think JTempest managed to keep a good voice during the whole tour this year; better than in previous years. Remember the ballsn banners tour : he could barely sing in the show they recorded at Shepherds bush..!
It didn't happen this time : he stayed very good until the end.
It's true that they have to take some rest, of course.
But not stopping a whole year. BTW, they need money, don't they ? And no concerts, no money for recording new albums...
