... speaking of BOC...


Band: Blue Oyster Cult
Album: Agents of Fortune
Year: 1976

[E.T.I. (Extra Terraestrial Intelligence)]

I hear the music, daylight disc
Three men in black said, "Don't report this"
"Ascension," and that's all they said
Sickness now, the hour's dread

All praise
He's found the awful truth, Balthazar
He's found the saucer news

I'm in fairy rings and tower beds
"Don't report this," three men said
Books by the blameless and by the dead
King in yellow, queen in red

All praise
He's found the awful truth, Balthazar
He's found the saucer news

Dead leaves always give up motion
I no longer feel the motion
Where prophecy fails, the falling motion
"Don't report this, agents of fortune"

All praise
He's found the awful truth, Balthazar
He's found the saucer news

Dusted off my old SCSI tower that's packed with tunes. 5 74 gig drives worth. Everything from ........ well in the last hour

Nazareth............Jet Lag
Lynyrd Skynyrd............Gimme Back My Bullets
Kenny Wayne Shepard.................Blue on Black
Savoy Brown..........................Tell Momma
Deep Purple..............Child In Time
Pink Floyd...................Pigs On The Wing
Supertramp.......................Long Way Home
Led Zeppelin.................When The Levee Breaks
Humble Pie...............................Thirty Days In The Hole
Jimi Hendrix........................Axis, Bold As Love
Black Sabbath..............................Fairies Wear Boots
Rolling Stones.....................................One Hit To The Body
The Kinks....................Lola
The Allman Brothers Band............................Statesboro Blues
John Lee Hooker...................Endless Boogie
Ten Years After............................Choo Choo Mama
Fleetwood Mac...................Oh Well
Foghat...................Feel So Bad
Rush..............................Distant Early Warning
Bad Company............................Shooting Star
Rolling Stones.....................................Wild Horses
Traffic.............................Shoot Out At The Fantasy Factory
Free.........................................Fire And Water
Crosby Stills and Nash..........................Southern Cross
Outlaws................................Green Grass and High Tides
Kansas...........................................Carry On, Wayward Son

Okay, so maybe it was longer than one hour. It's hard to believe I haven't hooked this tower to the stereo via computer in this long. I'm seriously expecting random play to prevent me from hearing the same song twice for at least a week. I'm wondering why it doesn't pick up more blues though?

Take care

I wouldn't know about greatest, but definitely very good. I've avoided rating guitarists for years simply because there so many greats to be had with this particular instrument. From Classical to Rock to Blues to Flamingo, the list never ends. In Rock, particularly during the old Acid/Blues Rock days, the field was absolutely packed with nothing short of fantastic guitarists.

Now if you switch to keyboards, the field immediately narrows. Probably because the instrument(s) are so much harder to master. Back then if you stepped outside of the Classical world, which seems to have a choke hold on great keyboard players, the group was limited to Jon Lord, Rick Wakeman, Ken Henschley, and Keith Emerson for true greats. As far as today goes, great keyboard players are in definite shortage. Once again, there's that problem with mastering the instrument. In Acid and Prog Rock days the great ones had all started with piano lessons when they were what? About six? For example, I think it was Jon Lord that was allegedly an unbelievable prodigy and received respective training. Today kids are of the same mind we were. Impatient, and unwilling to wait to be a master.

In case you can't tell, I'm one who spent years trying, and never truly mastered, keyboards. Especially the piano. In bands during my twenties it was Lord and Wakeman in particular that tied me up in constant knots. Especially Lord. I haven't a clue as to how somebody can move their fingers that fast while staying smooth and maintaining that rhythym on the other hand. I suppose it's just as tough for classical style guitarists though. And flamingo. Leo Kottke was always a source of wonder IMO.

Yeah, how do you rate guitarists anyway? Especially the guys that give it everything and only rarely hit an off lick. Guitars are for quick studies. But the ones that stick to it are something else. I played with a guy who had four years on a guitar and could play anything perfect. Today he has thirty years and I'm sure you can guess the rest. Almost all of the keyboard players I knew are like me. We quit.

I could ramble all day about great musicians who care about their art form. Too bad they're all so high strung.

Not to be picky icepick, but it was Ken Hensley... grin

I also think one could put both Tony Banks and Dave Greenslade in that keyboard list (though Greenslade was an obscure prog group he was very good.)
an interesting list

Greenslade (Colisseum and Greenslade) and Lawson (Web and Samurai) on keyboards

Hensley? Yeah, I believe you're right. Oh well, nobody's perfect.

You could add a lot of people to the list. I was only listing the few that had a habit of tying me up in knots, that's all. And for that matter, have you ever watched a just decent level guitar player tackle Jim Croce of all people? I never would've thunk. Such a commercial bird no less. On the other hand, just because that was never my taste in music ..................

Obscure pianists would have to include a few I've never known the names of as well. Like the one who played with Weather Report? There's a bunch of people like that. Usually Classical gets all the great keyboard players/pianists ............. but every now and then, know what I mean?

But that's why I drew the line and wouldn't go near guitarists. John McLaughlin anyone? Oh man, where do you start and where do you stop? grin

Yeah, I'm sure there are people who aced the ones that gave me fits and had problems with the ones I aced. Music seems to do that to people for some reason or other. I guess that's why it's an art form and not a science eh?

I'd best stop now before a country fan tells me I'm forgetting somebody. grin I know Bluegrass but don't do Country.

Take care

Yeah, I was never really into knowing names all that much. Some just made themselves more prevalent is all.

Of course you've got the world's best answer tool under your fingertips there as well. But not to worry. I'll grant you the bennie of the doubts here that you're so into obscure prog rock that you just know. But Weather Report makes the list of obscure among the obscure. The niche that exists for music too technical to sell. Music like Deep Purple's Concerto for Guitar and Violin, or Rick Wakeman's Journey to the Center of the Earth. Some of us thought it was really cool. But, unfortunately, most people couldn't have cared less. Some people, excuse me, most people don't seem to appreciate a beautiful masterpiece of music. Something that I find extremely sad.

Take care

Best guitarist in my mind is Stevie Ray Vaughn! He can play anything from any other artist and any genre.
If you've ever heard him play anything by Hendrix, you'd swear Jimi Hendrix was alive and well. I sure do miss Stevie now that's he is gone.
He inspired my grandson to become a guitarist, He ended up studying classical guitar. He's getting pretty good too! Cost me a bundle for his original Fender Jazzmaster and his PRS Custom Acoustic but he plays them so well it was worth it!

Yes, Stevie Ray was great, there's no doubt about it. But I just can't take away from ten gazillion other players of wonderment out there. Know what I mean? You mentioned a name there, Hendrix. That guy changed the way we'll play the guitar forever with his 'power chords'. Every genre out there has felt the impact. Most people don't realize exactly how lucky we were to live through that Great Stoned Age of the 1960s and 1970s. It was a true musical rennasaince. But this hospital type of stoned diet is getting me. I think I'd best hold off now.

The list of great guitarists needs must include Tommy Emmanuel and the late, great Micheal Hedges.. affectionately known as the guitar player from another planet grin
