What music are you listening to now?
Post by Smersh on Sep 27th, 2007, 3:58pm

Ok, I know this is a UFO forum and that's why I joined. I was surprised to find though, that there isn't a "What music are you listening to now?" thread! So I've started one.

Just tell everyone what's in yer ears right now or, better still, post a link to the YouTube or whatever video, so we can all enjoy it. wink

Well, just got home, so don't have my own music on yet. My little boy has been playing High School Musical 2 so much though that the songs run through my head all day! I have varied interests as well. Hey Raf, I really like the one song I have heard by Loreena Mckinnit, but it has been a couple of years and I forgot the name. Her voice is awesome.

Music listened to today: Mercyful Fate, Alice Cooper, Joan Jett, Helloween, Iron Maiden, The Bangels, The Beatles, and Van Halen! whoo-hoo! grin

Hey CL, you might also remember some of her work in that scifi movie "Soldier" with Kurt Russell. There was "Night Ride Across The Caucasus" during the childhood training sequences (which I found very disturbing, btw) and then there was "The Mummers Dance" when the castaways were partying. Both songs were from "Book of Secrets".

I highly recommend "Book of Secrets". It, in my opinion, is her best work. Nothing before or after has been able to capture that haunting "chills on your arms"quality of this album.

Sounds painful LOL!

If you're a Pink Floyd fan, Youtube have their entire set from Live 8 in 2005, the last time the band, including Roger Waters, played together live.

It can be a bit slow loading in, if you don't have an accelerator or have a slow system, but it's worth it.

Songs performed are Breathe, Money, Wish You Were Here and Comfortably Numb, (23 mins 52 secs total.)

When I found this ufo video, I became fascinated by the voice of Heap. So I asked my kids and they found her for me.

I pretty much fell out of my chair with this kid when he landed on me. See Guitar, above post everyone.
I think I have a new guitar hero, Eddie beware of retirement ROFL.

Smersh check JohnBro he is one of my personal heroes. He quite simply is Hirogen Warrior from Star Trek Voyager. He gets in some pretty hot licks on the guitar himself and he is one of our own.
www.johnbro.com or www.skymonsters.com
I can never remember which one he answers. But I would like to interject he is one fine individual, One of our own and I quite simply think he has autographed pictures on his website and if everyone here would give up one Big Mac as I ofter do, they could get themselves an autographed picture from our freind and help support his cause. There are also other celebrities here with us in addition to JohnBro, but until they reveal thenselves to us there is vey little we can do to help support them.

"Love Will Tear Us Apart" By Joy Division

Video Here!!

"Love Will Tear Us Apart" is a song by Joy Division, released in 1980. It is among the band's most famous songs.

It features the eerie baritone vocals of Ian Curtis. It was originally released in June 1980, and after Curtis's suicide -1 month earlier- May of that year, it went on to become Joy Division's only hit, reaching number 13 on the UK charts.

Joy Division broke up after his death and reformed as New Order. "Love Will Tear Us Apart" was re-released in 1983 and subsequently reached number 19 on the UK charts.

The song appears on the Substance compilation album. It was first recorded for a John Peel session in November 1979, and then re-recorded in January 1980 and March 1980.

"Love Will Tear Us Apart," was written in August / September of 1979 and was debuted when the band supported the Buzzxxxxs on their tour of the UK in September / October of 1979.

The lyrics are assumed to reflect the problems in Ian Curtis's marriage to Deborah Curtis, as well as his general frame of mind in the time leading up to his suicide.

-------------------------------------------------


Love Will Tear Us Apart Again : Joy Division : Song Lyrics

When the routine bites hard
And ambitions are low
And the resentment rides high
But emotions wont grow

And we're changing our ways,
Taking different roads

Then love, love will tear us apart again
Why is the bedroom so cold
Turned away on your side
Is my timing that flawed?

Our respect run so dry
Yet theres still this appeal
That we've kept through our lives
Love, love will tear us apart again

Do you cry out in your sleep?
All my failings exposed
Get a taste in my mouth
As desperation takes hold
Is it something so good
Just cant function no more
When love, love will tear us apart again............

Yeah I know! I couldn't believe it either and had never heard of him till somebody posted it at space.com yesterday.

Clapton? Who's he?? LOL

Also, thanks for the Johnbro links! I'm a huge Star Trek fan and watched all the original series, most of Next Generation and quite a few Voyager episodes.

William Shatner posts on 1 or 2 boards I believe, but whether he has any interest in UFO's or not I've no idea.

Also DrDil, that Joy Division video brought back memories of the John Peel show. wink I think I may have seen them play once years ago, possibly when they were on with The Members, who are friends of mine.

Anyway, thanks for all your posts and videos everyone! smiley

I love this song, especially the way Jeannie sings it. The guitar work's not bad here either ...

[Skating on the Thin Ice of a New Day]

*I place lyrics*

"Skating Away On The Thin Ice Of The New Day"

Meanwhile back in the year One
When you belonged to no-one
You didn't stand a chance son
If your pants were undone.

`Cause you were bred for humanity and sold to society
One day you'll wake up in the Present Day
A million generations removed from expectations
Of being who you really want to be.

Skating away
skating away
skating away on the thin ice of the New Day.

So as you push off from the shore,
won't you turn your head once more,
and make your peace with everyone?

For those who choose to stay,
will live just one more day,
to do the things they should have done.

And as you cross the wilderness,
spinning in your emptiness:
you feel you have to pray.

Looking for a sign
that the Universal Mind,
has written you into the Passion Play.

Skating away on the thin ice of the New Day.

And as you cross the circle line,
the ice-wall creaks behind
you're a rabbit on the run.

And the silver splinters fly,
in the corner of your eye,
shining in the setting sun.

Well, do you ever get the feeling that the story's
too damn real and in the present tense?

Or that everybody's on the stage, and it seems like
you're the only person sitting in the audience?

Skating away on the thin ice of the New Day.

Clones (We're All)

I'm a clone
I know it and I'm fine
I'm one and more are on the way
I'm two, doctor
Three's on the line
He'll take incubation another day

I'm all alone, so are we all
We're all clones
All are one and one are all
All are one and one are all

We destroyed the government
We're destroying time
No more problems on the way

I'm through doctor
We don't need your kind
The other ones
Ugly ones
Stupid boys
Wrong ones

I'm all alone, so are we all
We're all clones
All are one and one are all
All are one and one are all

Six is having problems
Adjusting to his clone status
Have to put him on a shelf
"Please don't put me on a shelf"
All day long we hear him crying so loud
I just wanna be myself
I just wanna be myself
I just wanna be myself
Be myself
Be myself

I'm all alone, so are we all
We destroyed the government
We're destroying time
No more problems on the way

I'm through doctor
We don't need your kind
The other ones
Ugly ones
Stupid boys
Wrong ones

I'm all alone, so are we all
We're all clones
All are one and one are all
All are one and one are all

[Iron Maiden Powerslave]

Into the Abyss I'll fall - the eye of Horus
Into the eyes of the night - watching me go
Green is the cat's eye that glows -
In this Temple
Enter the risen Osiris - risen again.

[Chorus:]
Tell me why I had to be a Powerslave
I don't wanna die, I'm a God,
Why can't I live on?
When the Life Giver dies,
All around is laid waste,
And in my last hour,
I'm a Slave to the Power of Death.

When I was living this lie - Fear was my Game
People would worship and fall -
Drop to their knees.
So bring me the blood and
Red wine for the one to succeed me,
For he is a man and a God -
And He will die too.

[Chorus:]

Now I am cold but a ghost lives in my veins,
Silent the terror that reigned -
Marbled in stone
A Shell of a man God preserved -
From thousand ages,
But open the gates of my hell -
I'll strike from the grave

[Chorus:]
Tell me why I had to be a Powerslave
I don't wanna die, I'm a God,
Why can't I live on?
When the Life Giver dies,
All around is laid waste,
And in my last hour,
I'm a Slave to the Power of Death.
Slave to the Power of Death...
Slave to the Power of Death...

[Jethro Tull Wond'ring Aloud]

Wond'ring aloud --
how we feel today.
Last night sipped the sunset --
my hands in her hair.
We are our own saviours
as we start both our hearts beating life
into each other.

Wond'ring aloud --
will the years treat us well.
As she floats in the kitchen,
I'm tasting the smell
of toast as the butter runs.
Then she comes, spilling crumbs on the bed
and I shake my head.
And it's only the giving
that makes you what you are.

[Jimi Hendrix Gypsy Eyes]

Well I realize that I've been hypnotized,
I love your gypsy eyes
I love your gypsy eyes
Alright!

Hey!
Gypsy.

Way up in my tree I'm sitting by my fire
Wond'rin' where in this world might you be
And knowin' all the time you're still roamin' in the country side
Do you still think about me?
Oh my gypsy.

Well I walked right on to your rebel roadside
The one that rambles on for a million miles
Yes I walk down this road searchin' for your love and ah my soul too
But when I find ya I ain't gonna let go.

I remember the first time I saw you
The tears in your eyes look like they're tryin' to say
Oh little boy you know I could love you
But first I must make my get away
Two strange men fightin' to the death over me today
I'll try to meet cha by the old highway.
Hey!

Well I realize that I've been hypnotized, I love your gypsy eyes
I love your gypsy eyes
I love your gypsy eyes
I love your gypsy eyes
Alright!

I've been searchin' so long my feet have made me lose the battle
Down against the road my weary knees they got me
Off to the side I fall but I hear a sweet call
My gypsy eyes is comin' and I've been saved.

Oh I've been saved
That's why I love you uh
Said I love you
Hey!
Love you uh
Lord I love you
Hey!

Well, if somehow you could pack up your sorrows,
And give them all to me.
You would lose them, I know how to use them,
Give them all to me.

[Refrain]

No use cryin', talking to a stranger,
Namin' the sorrows you've seen;
Oh, 'cause there are too many bad times,
Too many sad times,
Nobody knows what you mean.

[Refrain]

No use ramblin' walkin' in the shadows,
Trailin' a wanderin' star.
No one beside you, no one to hide you,
An' nobody knows where you are.

[Refrain]

No use roamin', walking by the roadside,
Seekin' a satisfied mind.
Ah, 'cause there are too many highways,
Too many byways,
Nobody's walkin' behind.

[Refrain]

You would lose them, I know how to use them,
Give them all to me.

So long ago
Was it in a dream, was it just a dream?
I know, yes I know
Seemed so very real, it seemed so real to me

Took a walk down the street
Thru the heat whispered trees
I thought I could hear (hear, hear, hear)
Somebody call out my name as it started to rain

Two spirits dancing so strange

Ah! b'wakawa pouss?, pouss?
Ah! b'wakawa pouss?, pouss?
Ah! b'wakawa pouss?, pouss?

Dream, dream away
Magic in the air, was magic in the air?
I believe, yes I believe
More I cannot say, what more can I say?

On a river of sound
Thru the mirror go round, round
I thought I could feel (feel, feel, feel)
Music touching my soul, something warm, sudden cold
The spirit dance was unfolding

Ah! b'wakawa pouss?, pouss?

[Shelter From The Storm]

I was in another lifetime one of toil and blood
When blackness was a virtue and the road was full of mud
I came in from the wilderness a creature void of form
"Come in" she said
"I'll give you shelter from the storm".

And if I pass this way again you can rest assured
I'll always do my best for her on that I give my word
In a world of steel-eyed death and men who are fighting to be warm
"Come in" she said
"I'll give you shelter from the storm".

Not a word was spoke between us there was little risk involved
Everything up to that point had been left unresolved
Try imagining a place where it's always safe and warm
"Come in" she said
"I'll give you shelter from the storm".

I was burned out from exhaustion buried in the hail
Poisoned in the bushes and blown out on the trail
Hunted like a crocodile ravaged in the corn
"Come in" she said
"I'll give you shelter from the storm".

Suddenly I turned around and she was standing there
With silver bracelets on her wrists and flowers in her hair
She walked up to me so gracefully and took my crown of thorns
"Come in" she said
"I'll give you shelter from the storm".

Now there's a wall between us something there's been lost
I took too much for granted got my signals crossed
Just to think that it all began on a long-forgotten morn
"Come in" she said
"I'll give you shelter from the storm".

Well the deputy walks on hard nails and the preacher rides a mount
But nothing really matters much it's doom alone that counts
And the one-eyed undertaker he blows a futile horn
"Come in" she said
"I'll give you shelter from the storm".

I've heard newborn babies wailing like a mourning dove
And old men with broken teeth stranded without love
Do I understand your question man is it hopeless and forlorn
"Come in" she said
"I'll give you shelter from the storm".

In a little hilltop village they gambled for my clothes
I bargained for salvation and she gave me a lethal dose
I offered up my innocence and got repaid with scorn
"Come in" she said
"I'll give you shelter from the storm".

Well I'm living in a foreign country but I'm bound to cross the line
Beauty walks a razor's edge someday I'll make it mine
If I could only turn back the clock to when God and her were born
"Come in" she said
"I'll give you shelter from the storm".

[ Harry Chapin - The Cat's In The Cradle]

My child arrived just the other day
He came to the world in the usual way
But there were planes to catch and bills to pay
He learned to walk while I was away
And he was talkin' 'fore I knew it, and as he grew
He'd say "I'm gonna be like you dad
You know I'm gonna be like you"

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin' home dad?
I don't know when, but we'll get together then son
You know we'll have a good time then

My son turned ten just the other day
He said, "Thanks for the ball, Dad, come on let's play
Can you teach me to throw", I said "Not today
I got a lot to do", he said, "That's ok"
And he walked away but his smile never dimmed
And said, "I'm gonna be like him, yeah
You know I'm gonna be like him"

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin' home son?
I don't know when, but we'll get together then son
You know we'll have a good time then

Well, he came home from college just the other day
So much like a man I just had to say
"Son, I'm proud of you, can you sit for a while?"
He shook his head and said with a smile
"What I'd really like, Dad, is to borrow the car keys
See you later, can I have them please?"

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin' home son?
I don't know when, but we'll get together then son
You know we'll have a good time then

I've long since retired, my son's moved away
I called him up just the other day
I said, "I'd like to see you if you don't mind"
He said, "I'd love to, Dad, if I can find the time
You see my new job's a hassle and kids have the flu
But it's sure nice talking to you, Dad
It's been sure nice talking to you"

And as I hung up the phone it occurred to me
He'd grown up just like me
My boy was just like me

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin' home son?
I don't know when, but we'll get together then son
You know we'll have a good time then

[Pink Floyd On the Turning Away]

On the turning away
From the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say
Which we won't understand

Don't accept that what's happening
Is just a case of others' suffering
Or you'll find that you're joining in
The turning away

It's a sin that somehow
Light is changing to shadow
And casting it's shroud
Over all we have known

Unaware how the ranks have grown
Driven on by a heart of stone
We could find that we're all alone
In the dream of the proud

On the wings of the night
As the daytime is stirring
Where the speechless unite
In a silent accord

Using words you will find are strange
And mesmerized as they light the flame
Feel the new wind of change
On the wings of the night

No more turning away
From the weak and the weary
No more turning away
From the coldness inside

Just a world that we all must share
It's not enough just to stand and stare
Is it only a dream that there'll be
No more turning away?

[John Lennon]

Close your eyes,
Have no fear,
The monsters gone,
He's on the run and your daddy's here,

Beautiful,
Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,

Before you go to sleep,
Say a little prayer,
Every day in every way,
It's getting better and better,

Beautiful,
Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,

Out on the ocean sailing away,
I can hardly wait,
To see you to come of age,
But I guess we'll both,
Just have to be patient,
Yes it's a long way to go,
But in the meantime,

Before you cross the street,
Take my hand,
Life is just what happens to you,
While your busy making other plans,

Beautiful,
Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,
Darling,
Darling,
Darling Sean.

1997 The Psycho Realm [with B-Real from Cypress Hill]

[Premonitions]


I got mad visions, pictures and premonitions
Of war drums and suicide missions
Prosecution, execution, revolution, mass confusion
All over ready for war, I'm a soldier
Nightmares of cross-airs, concentration camps
And electric chairs marking you with the stamp
Prepare yourself

Am i paranoid?
Why in my dreams, have I seen
the whole world destroyed?
Civilization raped, ain't no escape
Situations escalate in the date of 2001
Revelation, or is it just my imagination?
Invasion dreams reoccurring
I can't explain it
But it's the same one everyday

Televisions trackers citizens
Massacres and cashless systems
The New Order with no border
Renegades to rule over the new age
Malaise picture the gray haze
Consuming the world
This dream never goes away
I wish i knew the meaning of all this
'Cause the pieces of the puzzle just don't fit

Premonitions of war cloud my every thought
Battles fought, won and lost a Holocaust
Always the same ending, don't ever change
But I refuse to believe we all go down in flames

I wake up in the middle of combat
From the attack of the bomb killing on impact
Disintegration over the whole nation
And overseas victory to our enemies

[Johnny Cash]

Bad luck wind been blowin on my back
I was born to bring trouble wherever Im at
With the number 13 tattooed on my neck
That ink starts to itch
Black gon turn to red

I was born in the soul of misery
And I never had me a name
They just give me a number when I was young

Got a long line of heartache
I carry it well
The list of lives Ive broken
Reach from here to hell
And a bad luck wind been blowin on my back
Pray you dont look at me
And I pray I dont look back

I was born in the soul of misery
And I never had me a name
They just give me a number when I was young

Found me with a preacherman confessin all I done
Catch me with the devil playing 21
And a bad luck wind been blowin on my back
I was born to bring trouble wherever Im at

I was born in the soul of misery
And I never had me a name
They just give me a number when I was young
When I was young
When I was young
When I was young

If the rain comes, they run and hide their heads
They might as well be dead
If the rain comes, if the rain comes

When the Sun shines, they slip into the shade
And sip their lemonade
When the Sun shines, when the Sun shines

Rain, I don't mind
Shine, the weather's fine

I can show you that when it starts to rain
Everything's the same
I can show you, I can show you

Rain, I don't mind
Shine, the weather's fine

Can you hear me that when it rains and shines
It's just a state of mind?
Can you hear me? Can you hear me?

Here is a song by a group named, WASP

Off the album titled, The Headless Children 1988-or-1989

I really like the kind of music they start the song out with, which is different than the rest of the song. The song addresses drug addiction and it's bad results. The "demon sounding" voice is not the devil per se but rather a representation of drugs... anyhow, it's an overall good message from an underground perspective grin

Sorry, couldn't find a studio [album] version of the song, only found a concert version... I don't think WASP made too many music videos tongue

The band reminds me of the group Motorhead in the whole speed metal biker scene... their music differs though. This album was a good one, their best album in my opinion.

Too bad, the studio version is so much better.

Those were some oldies tongue

John Lennon witnessed a UFO from his New York apartment building, even wrote about it in a song. He was actually working on a new album, which this song was on, when he was shot to death. Not to make a UFO conspiracy out of it, but it is an interesting fact. grin

The Album, Milk & Honey, which Yoko Ono put together from material they had already recorded and later released the album after John had died.

Everybody's flying and no one leaves the ground
Everybody's crying and no one makes a sound
There's a place for us in the movies you just gotta lay around

Nobody told me there'd be days like these

Lennon was living in the age of UFO so it would be hard to prove a conspiracy in that line of the song, but if you take the line that is totally out of context with the song then that’s a different matter lol.
There’s a little yellow idol to the north of Katmandu, why did he put that line from the poem by J Milton Hayes into the song, had he a premonition of his own murder? Or maybe it can be tied to UFO as it refers to the magical valley in the Himalayans lol lets see what comes from this statement.

heh HS, I think you have taken the idea a bit far tongue

The concept of the song is that we are living in 'strange times'

Also, I did not post the song to 'prove' anything, and the conspiracy statement by myself was in humor, you apparently overlooked that grin

I do actually believe in the likelihood of Lennon being assassinated by a mind control victim... but for what reasons, I am not specifically sure. We do know President Nixon had FBI files on Lennon and he was being monitored, phone bugged photos taken... the works. Is it then a coincidence that after a 5-6 year break away from music [to raise his son, Sean] he is killed shortly after his 1st album is released after this break? perhaps... but it is also possible it was not mere chance... cool

[The Ballad of Hollis Brown]

Hollis Brown
He lived on the outside of town
Hollis Brown
He lived on the outside of town
With his wife and five children
And his cabin broken' down.

You looked for work and money
And you walked a rugged mile
You looked for work and money
And you walked a rugged mile
Your children are so hungry
That they don't know how to smile.

Your baby's eyes look crazy
They're a-tuggin' at your sleeve
Your baby's eyes look crazy
They're a-tuggin' at your sleeve
You walk the floor and wonder why
With every breath you breathe.

The rats have got your flour
Bad blood it got your mare
The rats have got your flour
Bad blood it got your mare
If there's anyone that knows
Is there anyone that cares ?

You prayed to the Lord above
Oh please send you a friend
You prayed to the Lord above
Oh please send you a friend
Your empty pocket tell you
That you ain't a-got no friend.

Your babies are crying louder now
It's pounding on your brain
Your babies are crying louder now
It's pounding on your brain
Your wife's screams are stabbin' you
Like the dirty drivin' rain.

Your grass is turning black
There's no water in your well
Your grass is turning black
There's no water in your well
Your spent your last lone dollar
On seven shotgun shells.

Way out in the wilderness
A cold coyote calls
Way out in the wilderness
A cold coyote calls
Your eyes fix on the shotgun
That's hangin' on the wall.

Your brain is a-bleedin'
And your legs can't seem to stand
Your brain is a-bleedin'
And your legs can't seem to stand
Your eyes fix on the shotgun
That you're holdin' in your hand.

There's seven breezes a-blowin'
All around the cabin door
There's seven breezes a-blowin'
All around the cabin door
Seven shots ring out
Like the ocean's pounding roar.

There's seven people dead

[When You Gonna Wake Up]

God don't make promises that He don't keep
You got some big dreams baby, but in order to dream you gotta still be asleep.

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up
When you gonna wake up strengthen the things that remain ?

Counterfeited philosophies have polluted all of your thoughts
Karl Marx has got ya by the throat, Henry Kissinger's got you tied up in knots.

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up
When you gonna wake up strengthen the things that remain ?

You got innocent men in jail, your insane asylums are filled
You got unrighteous doctors dealing drugs that'll never cure your ills.

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up
When you gonna wake up strengthen the things that remain ?

You got men who can't hold their peace and woman who can't control their tongues
The rich seduce the poor and the old are seduced by the young.

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up
When you gonna wake up strengthen the things that remain ?

Adulterers in churches and pornography in the schools
You got gangsters in power and lawbreakers making rules.

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up
When you gonna wake up strengthen the things that remain ?

Spiritual advisors and gurus to guide your every move
Instant inner peace and every step you take has got to be approved.

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up
When you gonna wake up strengthen the things that remain ?

Do you ever wonder just what God requires ?
You think He's just an errand boy to satisfy your wandering desires.

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up
When you gonna wake up and strengthen the things that remain ?

You can't take it with you and you know that it's too worthless to be sold
They tell you, 'Time is money' as if your life was worth its weight in gold.

There's a man up on a cross and He's been crucified for you
Believe in His power that's about all you got to do.

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up
When you gonna wake up and strengthen the things that remain ?

cool

An earlier U2 song:

[Bad]

If you twist and turn away.
It you tear yourself in two again.
If I could, yes I would
If I could, I would let it go.
Surrender, dislocate.

If I could throw this lifeless life-line to the wind.
Leave this heart of clay, see you walk, walk away
Into the night, and through the rain
Into the half light and through the flame.

If I could, through myself, set your spirit free
I'd lead your heart away, see you break, break away
Into the light and to the day.

To let it go and so to find away.
To let it go and so find away.
I'm wide awake.
I'm wide awake, wide awake.
I'm not sleeping.

If you should ask, then maybe
They'd tell you what I would say
True colours fly in blue and black
Blue silken sky and burning flag.
Colours crash, collide in blood-shot eyes.

If I could, you know I would
If I could, I would let it go.

This desperation, dislocation
Separation, condemnation
Revelation, in temptation
Isolation, desolation
Let it go and so to find away
To let it go and so to find away
To let it go and so to find away

I'm wide awake, I'm wide awake, wide awake
I'm not sleeping
Oh no, no, no.

Slaves
Hebrews born to serve, to the pharaoh
Heed
To his every word, live in fear
Faith
Of the unknown one, the deliverer
Wait
Something must be done, four hundred years

So let it be written

To kill the first born pharaoh son
I'm creeping death

Now
Let my people go, land of goshen
Go

Running red and strong, down the Nile
Plague
Darkness three days long, hail to fire

To kill the first born pharaoh son

Die by my hand
I creep across the land
Killing first born man
Die by my hand
I creep across the land
Killing first born man

I
Rule the midnight air the destroyer
Born
I shall soon be there, deadly mass
I
Creep the steps and floor, final darkness
Blood
Lambs blood painted door, I shall pass

I'm sent here by the chosen one
So let it be written
So let it be done
To kill the first born pharaoh son

Gosh John, you sure like the old folks music... I can appreciate that grin

Billy Joel 1973

[Piano Man]

It's nine o'clock on a Saturday
The regular crowd shuffles in
There's an old man sitting next to me
Making love to his tonic and gin

He says, "Son can you play me a memory
I'm not really sure how it goes
But it's sad and it's sweet
And I knew it complete
When I wore a younger man's clothes"

Sing us a song you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us feeling alright

Now John at the bar is a friend of mine
He gets me my drinks for free
And he's quick with a joke or to light up your smoke
But there's someplace that he'd rather be

He says, "Bill, I believe this is killing me"
As a smile ran away from his face
"Well, I'm sure that I could be a movie star
If I could get out of this place"

Now Paul is a real estate novelist
Who never had time for a wife
And he's talking with Davy, who's still in the Navy
And probably will be for life

And the waitress is practicing politics
As the businessmen slowly get stoned
Yes they're sharing a drink they call loneliness
But it's better than drinking alone

Sing us a song you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us feeling alright

It's a pretty good crowd for a Saturday
And the manager gives me a smile
'Cause he knows that it's me they've been coming to see
To forget about life for a while

And the piano sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
And say "Man what are you doing here?"

Sing us a song you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us feeling alright

One of my favorite by Dylan, 1964

[One Too Many Mornings]

Down the street the dogs are barkin'
And the day is a-gettin' dark
As the night comes in a-fallin'
The dogs lose their bark
An' the silent night will shatter
From the sounds inside my mind
And I'm one too many mornings
And a thousand miles behind.

From the crossroads of my doorstep
My eyes start to fade
And I turn my head back to the room
Where my love and I have laid
An' I gaze back to the street
The sidewalk and the sign
And I'm one too many mornings
An' a thousand miles behind.

It's a restless hungry feeling
That don't mean no one no good
When everything I'm a-sayin'
You can say it just as good
You're right from your side
I'm right from mine
We're both just too many mornings
An' a thousand miles behind.

Best album they made IMO, titled, Benefit

[To Cry You A Song]

Flying so high, trying to remember
how many cigarettes did I bring along?
When I get down I'll jump in a taxi cab
driving through London town
to cry you a song.

It's been a long time --
still shaking my wings.
Well, I'm a glad bird
I got changes to ring.

Closing my dream inside its paper-bag.
Thought I saw angels
but I could have been wrong.
Search in my case,
can't find what they're looking for.
Waving me through
to cry you a song.

It's been a long time --
still shaking my wings.
Well I'm a glad bird
I got changes to ring.

Lights in the street,
peeping through curtains drawn.
Rattling of safety chain taking too long.
The smile in your eyes was never so sweet before --
Came down from the skies
to cry you a song.

You say you want a revolution
Well you know
We all want to change the world

We all want to change the world
But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know you can count me out
Don't you know it's gonna be alright
Alright Alright

You say you got a real solution
Well you know
We'd all love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well you know
We're doing what we can
But when you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell you is brother you have to wait
Don't you know it's gonna be alright
Alright Alright

You say you'll change the constitution
Well you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it's the institution
Well you know
You better free your mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow
Don't you know know it's gonna be alright

Three flecks in the sky warn you you're gonna die

Flashes in the sky turns houses into sties
Turns people into clay, radiation minds decay

Robot minds of robot slaves lead them to atomic rage
Plastic flowers, melting sun, fading moon falls upon
Dying world of radiation, victims of man's frustration
Burning globe of obscene fire, like electric funeral pyre

Buildings crashing down to a cracking ground
Rivers turn to wood, ice melts into blood
Earth lies in death bed, clouds cry for the dead
Tearing life away, here's the burning pay

Electric Funeral
Electric Funeral
Electric Funeral
Electric Funeral

And so in the sky shines the electric eye
Supernatural king takes earth under his wing
Heaven's golden chorus sings, Hell's angels flap their wings
Evil souls fall to Hell, ever trapped in burning cells

Silver people on the shoreline let us be
Talkin' 'bout very free and easy

Horror grips us as we watch you die
All we can do is echo your anguished cries
Stare as all human feelings die
We are leaving, you don't need us

Go take your sister then by the hand
Lead her away from this foreign land
Far away where we might laugh again

I find myself lately unable to listen to any kind of music with lyrics. I crave for something spiritual, otherworldly, celebrating the glory of the universe, and all I find is people singing about their lives and how miserable they are, and what their fleshy cravings are.
Popular and rock music was always extremely un-spiritual in nature.

But I do like instrumental electronic music, like Vangelis and similar
Re: What music are you listening to now?
Post by Nephilim on Sep 22nd, 2008, 1:31pm

Hi Trilex -

I know what you mean, and at times go through that stage of seeking instrumentals over anything else.

If we are speaking of current music, then I would agree, most of it is pure trash when considering the message being sent. I could even say that for most of the music I listen to as well, however I listen more for the music itself and less the lyric, but there are some significant songs where the lyrics are powerful. I would think there is alot of spirituality in music, but now days, perhaps not... a reflection of society as it plunges into a spiritual dark age. wink

Here are some heavy metal instrumentals you may enjoy to hear... and if you look enough for other songs similar, you may be pleasantly surprised smiley

Metallica Instrumentals:

1983 - Kill 'Em All is the album grin [and whata great album it is!]. This is a Bass solo by Cliff Burton. Burton died while on tour for the Master of Puppets tour in Europe 1986 [car accident]... this whole song is a bass guitar! cool

[Anesthesia- Pulling Teeth]

The song above, runs into the song below, though not an instrumental...

[Whiplash]

1984 - Ride the Lightning - Metallica's 2nd album. This one is a bit more redundant, but an instrumental nonetheless, and nota bad one... I like it anyways smiley

[The Call of Ktulu]

1986 - Master of Puppets - Metallica's 3rd album and arguably their best album overall [but Kill 'Em All comes in close to me as #1]... This is their best instrumental by far. It also shows how the band had matured from 1983 and are now able to better articulate. Hands down one of Metallica's greatest songs below:

[Orion]

1988 - ...And Justice for All - Metallica's 4th album, and 1st without bassist Cliff Burton. They made more albums but they are all cover song-albums, so this was the 1st main album with new bassist Jason Newsted, however, the song below is actually the late Cliff Burton singing, recorded from before he died in '86, they had put most of this song together already... this is considered an instrumental because it is like a 10 minute song with one set of lyrics at the very end:

[To Live is to Die]

Lyrics:
When a man lies he murders some part of the world
These are the pale deaths which men miscall their lives
All this I cannot bear to whiteness any longer
Cannot the Kingdom of Salvation take me home

cool

there are many more similar songs out there by various artists

[Breakdown]

We all come in from the cold
We come down from the wire
An everybody warms themselves
to a different fire

When sometimes we get burned
You'd think sometime we'd learn
The one you love is the one
That should take you higher

You ain't got no one
You better go back out and find her

Just like children hiding in a closet
Can't tell what's going on outside
Sometimes we're so far off the beaten track
We'll get taken for a ride
By a parlor trick or some words of wit
A hidden hand up a sleeve
To think the one you love could hurt you now
Is a little hard to believe
But everybody darling sometimes
Bites the hand that feeds

When I look around
Everybody always brings me down
Well is it them or me
Well I just can't see
But there ain't no peace to found
But if someone really cared
Well they'd take the time to spare
A moment to try and understand
Another one's despair
Remember in this game we call life
That no one said it's fair

Breakdown

I've come to know the cold
I think of it as home
When there ain't enough of me
To go around
I'd rather be left alone

But if I call you out of habit
I'm out of love and I gotta have it
Would you give it to me
If I fit you needs
Like when we both knew we had it

But now the damage's done
And we're back out on the run
Fun how everything was Roses
When we held on to the Guns
Just because you're winning
Don't mean you're the lucky ones

Breakdown

"There goes the challenger being chased
By the blue blue meanies on wheels
The vicious traffic squad cars are
After our lone driver
The last American hero
The-the electric sintar
The demi-god,
The super driver of the golden west!
Two nasty Nazi cars are close behind
The beautiful lone driver
The police cars are getting closer-closer...
Closer to our soul hero in his soul mobile- Yeah baby!
They about to strike, They gonna get him, Smash!
The last beautiful free soul on this planet
But...it is written if the Evil Spirit
Arms the Tiger with claws
Brahman provided wings for the Dove
Thus spake the Super Guru"
"Did you hear that"

Company always on the run
Destiny with the rising sun
I was born 6-gun in my hand
Behind a gun I make my final stand

That's why they call me... Bad company
And I can't deny
Bad company
Till the day I die
Till the day I die
Till the day I die

Rebel souls
Deserters we are called
Chose a gun and threw away the sun
Now these towns
They all know our name
6-gun sound is our claim to fame

I can hear them say... Bad company
And I won't deny
Bad Bad company

I think Palmer covered Marc Bolan's song "Get It On," which Bolan made famous with T.Rex, but Palmer was never actually part of T.Rex itself (as far as I know.)

The girls in that video I posted (and who also appeared in a number of other Palmer videos) were just known as "The Palmer Girls."

here's a good tune produced by Johnny Cash and U2, from U2's 1993 album titled Zooropa:

[The Wanderer]

I went out walking through streets paved with gold
Lifted some stones, saw the skin and bones
Of a city without a soul

I went out walking under an atomic sky
Where the ground won't turn and the rain it burns
Like the tears when I said goodbye

Yeah, I went with nothing, nothing but the thought of you
I went wandering

I went drifting through the capitals of tin
Where men can't walk or freely talk
And sons turn their fathers in

I stopped outside a church house
Where the citizens like to sit.
They say they want the kingdom
But they don't want God in it

I went out riding down that old eight-lane
I passed a thousand signs looking for my own name
I went with nothing but the thought you'd be there too,
Looking for you

I went out there in search of experience
To taste and to touch and to feel as much
As a man can before he repents

I went out searching, looking for one good man
A spirit who would not bend or break
Who would sit at his father's right hand

I went out walking with a bible and a gun
The word of God lay heavy on my heart
I was sure I was the one

Now Jesus, don't you wait up, Jesus I'll be home soon.
Yeah, I went out for the papers, told her I'd be back by noon

Yeah, I left with nothing but the thought you'd be there too
Looking for you

Yeah, I went with nothing, nothing but the thought of you.
I went wandering

Here is a U2 song that Cash covered... 1991 album named; Achtung Baby

[U2 - One]

[Johnny Cash - One]

Is it getting better, or do you feel the same?
Will it make it easier on you, now you got someone to blame?
You say one love, one life, when it's one need in the night.
One love, we get to share it
Leaves you baby if you don't care for it.

Did I disappoint you or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love and you want me to go without.
Well, it's too late tonight to drag the past out into the light.
We're one, but we're not the same.
We get to carry each other, carry each other... one

Have you come here for forgiveness,
Have you come to raise the dead
Have you come here to play Jesus to the lepers in your head
Did I ask too much, more than a lot
You gave me nothing, now it's all I got.
We're one, but we're not the same.
Well, we hurt each other, then we do it again.

You say love is a temple, love a higher law
Love is a temple, love the higher law.
You ask me to enter, but then you make me crawl
And I can't be holding on to what you got, when all you got is hurt.

One love, one blood, one life, you got to do what you should.
One life with each other: sisters, brothers.
One life, but we're not the same.
We get to carry each other, carry each other.
One, one

Here's another good U2 song, Bob Dylan help write this one. from the 1988 Rattle & Hum album;

[Love Rescue Me]

Love rescue me
Come forth and speak to me
Raise me up
And don't let me fall.
No man is my enemy
My own hands imprison me.
Love rescue me.

Many strangers have I met
On the road to my regret
Many lost who seek to find themselves in me.
They ask me to reveal
The very thoughts they would conceal.
Love, rescue me.

And the sun in the sky
Makes a shadow of you and I
Stretching out as the sun sinks in the sea.
I'm here without a name
In the palace of my shame
I said, love, rescue me.

In the cold mirror of a glass
I see my reflection pass
I see the dark shades of what I used to be.
I see the purple of her eyes
The scarlet of my lies.
Love, rescue me.

Yeah, though I walk
In the valley of the shadow
Yet, I will fear no evil.
I have cursed thy rod and staff
They no longer comfort me.
Love, rescue me.

Sha la la la etc.
I said love, love, rescue me.

Yeah, I'm here without a name
In the palace of my shame
I said love, rescue me.

I've conquered my past
The future is here at last
I stand at the entrance to a new world I can see.
The ruins to the right of me
Will soon have lost sight of me.
Love, rescue me.

Does anyone remember the case of Gary Gilmore? In 1977, he became the first person to be executed for murder in the USA for nearly ten years, following a moratorium. Anti capital punishment activists lobbied constantly for him to be spared the death penalty and would quite possibly have succeeded, but Gilmore himself insisted he should be executed and eventually won the day. He was given a choice of death by hanging, or firing squad. He chose to be shot.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/onthisday/hi/dates/stories/january/17/newsid_2530000/2530413.stm

Two people received Gilmore's corneas within hours of his death, which inspired the Adverts to write this song, which became a UK top 20 hit.

Album; Volume 4

[Wheels of confusion]

Long ago I wandered through my mind
In the land of fairy tales and stories
Lost in happiness I had no fears
Innocence and love was all I knew
Was it illusion?

Soon the days went passing into years
Happiness just didn't come so easy
Life was more than fairy tales and daydreams
Innocence was just another word
Was it illusion?

Lost in the wheels of confusion
Running through furnace of tears
Eyes full of angered illusion
Hiding in everyday fears

So I found that life is just a game
But you know there's never been a winner
Try your hardest, you'll be a loser
The world will still be turning when you're gone
Yeah when you're gone!

The way I feel is the way I am
I wish I'd walked before I started to run to you
Just to you

What kind of people do you think we are?
Another joker who's a rock and roll star for you
Just for you

The faithful image of another man
The endless ocean of emotion I swam for you
Yeah for you

The shot troopers laying down on the floor
I wish they'd put an end to my running war with you
Yeah with you

Are you metal, are you man?
You've changed in life since you began
Yeah began

Ladies digging gold from you
Will they still dig now you're through
Yeah you're through

You bought and sold me with your lying words
The voices in the deck that you never heard came through
Yeah came through

Your folly finally got to spend with a gun
A poisoned father who has poisoned his son, that's you
Yeah that's you

I beg you please don't let it get any worse
The anger I once had has turned to a curse on you
Yeah curse you

All of the promises that never came true
You're gonna get what is coming to you, that's true
Ah, that's true

Are you Satan, are you man?
You've changed in life since it began
It began

Vultures sucking gold from you
Will they still suck now you're through

(Cats, Rats)

The search is on, so you just better run
And find yourself another way
Probably dead, they don't feel a thing
To keep them living for another day

(Rats, Rat)

You are nonentity, you have no destiny
You are a victim of a thing unknown
A mantle picture of a stolen soul
A fornication of your golden throne

A smiling face, it means the world to me
So tired of sadness and of misery

My life it started some time ago
Where it will end, I don't know

I thought I was so good
I thought I was smart
I feel my world's been torn apart

But everything is gonna work out fine
If it don't I think I'll lose my mind

I know, I know, I know, yeah yeah I know

Listen to me while I sing this song
You might just think the words are wrong

Too many people advising me
But they don't know what my eyes see

But everything is gonna work out fine
If it don't I feel I'll blow my mind, yeah

Hey starman smiley

that is a great album. Here is a link for the song, which is song 1 on that album

[Caught Somewhere In Time]

If you had the time to lose
An open mind and time to choose
Would you care to take a look
Or can you read me like a book

Time is always on my side
Time is always on my side

Can I tempt you come with me
Be Devil may care fulfill your dream
If I said I'd take you there
Would you go would you be scared

Time is always on my side
Time is always on my side

Don't be afraid you're safe with me
Safe as any soul can be... honestly
Just let yourself go

[Chorus:]
Caught somewhere in time
Caught somewhere in time
Caught somewhere in time... oh oh
Caught somewhere in time
Caught somewhere in time
Caught somewhere in time... oh oh

Like a wolf in sheep's clothing
You try to hide your deepest sins
Of all the things that you've done wrong
And I know where you belong

Time is always on my side
Time is always on my side

Make you an offer you can't refuse
You've only got your soul to lose...
Eternally... let yourself go!

[Chorus:]
Caught somewhere in time
Caught somewhere in time
Caught somewhere in time... oh oh
Caught somewhere in time
Caught somewhere in time
Caught now in two minds!

Song No. 2 on that same album smiley

[Wasted Years]

From the coast of gold, across the seven seas
I'm travellin' on, far and wide
But now it seems, I'm just a stranger to myself
And all the things I sometimes do, it isn't me but
someone else

I close my eyes, and think of home
Another city goes by in the night
Ain't it funny how it is, you never miss it 'til it's
gone away
And my heart is lying there and will be 'til my
dying day

[Chorus:]
So understand
Don't waste your time always searching for
those wasted years
Face up... make your stand
And realise you're living in the golden years

Too much time on my hands, I got you on my mind
Can't ease this pain, so easily
When you can't find the words to say it's hard to
make it through another day
And it makes me wanna cry and throw my
hands up to the sky

[Chorus:]

My tastes are quite varied and eclectic, ranging from classical to jazz to New Age, Solfeggio healing music, Gregorian chants, light rock, and even some Country...! I find music to be so evocative.... it really brings you right into the energy of whatever is being conveyed by it, and there is even a musical chakra chant (it's called Swara Yoga) one can practice to cleanse, clear, envigorate and bring your chakra system into alignment! It's quite a powerful practice.... I like do sit atop Mt. Shasta and do it repeatedly for half an hour or more smiley

Band: ST
Year: 1990
Album: Lights, Camera... Revolution!

[Give It Revolution]

Throughout all time and history
The world's been mauled tyranny
Now we're refusing to take it

The worst evil the world has saw
Were crimes defended by the "law"
Deny our rights and we'll break it

You got to break the chains that hold you down
Crush the tyrants to the ground
Freedom cannot be legislated

We'll bow down to no other one
Except The Father and His Son
They can't deny what he's created

Most wars never should have been thought
But this is a war that must be fought
We'll take a wrong and we'll right it

The greatest weapon of the fascist
Is the tolerance of the pacifist
We've got to stand up and fight it

We'll give it...

You got to give it revolution, give it revolution
We're gonna give it revolution, give it revolution
You got to give it revolution, give it revolution
We're gonna give it revolution!

Well you can put a bullet in my head
But you can't kill a word I've said
You got the disease, I got the solution [Revolution]

No matter how much or more you try,
you can never ever make this martyr die
Give it revolution

Revolution!

You could put a bullet in my head
But you can't kill a word I've said
Give it! Revolution

No matter how much or what you try
You can never ever make a martyr die
Fever! For revolution

Lately the ol CD player has been booming out…

Lone Justice ‘Ways To Be Wicked”…this band was a one hit wonder back in the 80’s (mostly roots driven rock). I never figured out why. The lead singer Maria McKee could belt out a song like no ones business…but except for one so-so solo follow up album by McKee…they just faded away.

Gene Clark and Carla Olsen’s “So Rebellious A Lover”….a fitting cap to Gene’s career.

Molly Hatchet …the first album. Their rendition of the Allman Brother’s “ Dreams I’ll Never See” is classic. But the song “ Gator Country” with those 3 alternating screaming guitar leads defines the Southern Rock genre.

I've posted this one up before but it's been a while... one of the greats from Pink Floyd

[On the Turning Away]

On the turning away
From the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say
Which we won't understand

Don't accept that what's happening
Is just a case of others' suffering
Or you'll find that you're joining in
The turning away

It's a sin that somehow
Light is changing to shadow
And casting it's shroud
Over all we have known

Unaware how the ranks have grown
Driven on by a heart of stone
We could find that we're all alone
In the dream of the proud

On the wings of the night
As the daytime is stirring
Where the speechless unite
In a silent accord

Using words you will find are strange
Mesmerized as they light the flame
Feel the new wind of change
On the wings of the night

No more turning away
From the weak and the weary
No more turning away
From the coldness inside

Just a world that we all must share
It's not enough just to stand and stare
Is it only a dream that there'll be
No more turning away?

Should I fall out of love, my fire in the light
To chase a feather in the wind
Within the glow that weaves a cloak of delight
There moves a thread that has no end.

For many hours and days that pass ever soon
the tides have caused the flame to dim
At last the arm is straight, the hand to the loom
Is this to end or just begin?

All of my love, all of my love, All of my love to you.

The cup is raised, the toast is made yet again
One voice is clear above the din
Proud Aryan one word, my will to sustain
For me, the cloth once more to spin

All of my love, all of my love, All of my love to you.

Yours is the cloth, mine is the hand that sews time
his is the force that lies within
Ours is the fire, all the warmth we can find
He is a feather in the wind

All of my love, all of my love, All of my love to you.

To walk the caves of ice
To break my fast on honeydew
And drink the milk of Paradise...'

I had heard the whispered tales of immortality
The deepest mystery
From an ancient book I took a clue
I scaled the frozen mountain tops of eastern lands unknown
Time and Man alone
Searching for the lost Xanadu

Xanadu...

To stand within the Pleasure Dome
Decreed by Kublai Khan
To taste anew the fruits of life
The last immortal man
To find the sacred river Alph
To walk the caves of ice
Oh, I will dine on honeydew
And drink the milk of Paradise

A thousand years have come and gone but time has passed me by
Stars stopped in the sky
Frozen in an everlasting view
Waiting for the world to end, weary of the night
Praying for the light
Prison of the lost
Xanadu

Xanadu...

Held within the Pleasure Dome
Decreed by Kublai Khan
To taste my bitter triumph
As a mad immortal man
Nevermore shall I return
Escape these caves of ice
For I have dined on honeydew
And drunk the milk of Paradise

[Believer]

Watching the time go
And feeling belief grow
Rise above the obstacles
People beseech me
But they'll never teach me
Things that I already know (I know)

Dreams that have shattered
May not have mattered
Take another point of view
Doubts will arise, though
Like chasing a rainbow
I can tell a thing or two (That's true)

You've got to believe in yourself
Or no one will believe in you
Imagination like a bird on the wing
Flying free for you to use (OK baby)

I can't believe they stop and stare
And point their fingers, doubting me
Their disbelief suppresses them
But they're not blind
It's just that they won't see

I'm a believer
I ain't no deceiver
Mountains move before my eyes
Destiny planned out
I don't need no handout
Speculation of the wise

No, I don't want to let you down

But I don't want to wear a broken crown
You know it brings me down

Don't think you'll ever understand me
I don't even understand me
Don't have the power to anoint you
And I don't want to disappoint
The fools no more
The fools no more

I couldn't answer all your questions
And if you're lost I couldn't find your way
I couldn't find your way

You know you have to face the music
You changed your tune and don't know what to play
So don't you run away

Everybody's talking crazy
Some think I am a devil maybe
I don't want to hear about it
Don't want to have to scream and shout
At fools no more
The fools no more

So, I don't want to be a hero
Don't want to sit upon your crippled throne
I've got a life of my own

I am not your destination
Or a road that's gonna lead you home
So, baby please don't go

Please don't go
Please don't go

Well…my sweetie brought me kickin and screaming into the modern era with a Christmas gift of an ipod shuffle. I’ve avoided those things for years preferring the perceived cleaner, crisper sound of vinyl. Curmudgeon to the bitter end, it sat in the computer nook at home untouched, unopened until a couple of days ago. Then Dina loaded a few tunes onto it and stuck it in my coat pocket.

Finding myself with a bit of free time during lunch a few days ago, I figured what the hell. Stuck those earphones in and cranked it up. Hmmm…truthfully…either my hearing is getting bad..or…or…hell, this thing sounds everybit as good as any album I’ve ever had. No scratches, no turntable and its music to my ears only as I work happily away the rest of that afternoon. Only thing wrong is the music selection…I’ll need to fix that.

$0.99 / song at itunes…a hundred bucks later and a minor scolding from the wife…I’ve taken a serious stroll down memory lane..downloading Lynyrd Skynyrd, Lone Justice, Metallica, Gene Clark, Blackfoot, Bob Dylan, Matchbox 20, The Outlaws, Molly Hatchet, Houston Marchman, Dwight Yoakum, Natalie Merchant, CCR, Doobie Brothers, Santana…to name a few.

Ok…these things are pretty cool.

Just beneath the raw silk sheen
That reflects the tints of Autumn from the hills.

Packed and ready, ready waiting
Showered and dressed down lightly for the heat
Give a clue; leave a kind word

Got to take in what I can.
There is no time to do what must be done,
While I do some thinking.
Sleeping is hard to come by,
So we'll all sit down and try to play in time,
and we feel like singing.

Talking to people in my way.

Blues were my favorite colour,

that I felt like singing.
Trying so hard to reach you;
playing what must be played, what must be sung --

All the places I've been make it hard to begin
to enjoy life again on the inside,
but I mean to.
Take a walk around the block
and be glad that I've got me some time
to be in from the outside,
and inside with you.

I'm sitting on the corner feeling glad.
Got no money coming in but I can't be sad.
That was the best cup of coffee I ever had.
And I won't worry about a thing
because we've got it made,
here on the inside, outside so far away.

And we'll laugh and we'll sing
get someone to bring our friends here
for tea in the evening --
Old Jeffrey makes three.
Take a walk in the park,
does the wind in the dark
sound like music to you?
Well I'm thinking it does to me.

Can you cook, can you sew --
well, I don't want to know.
That is not what you need on the inside,
to make the time go.

Counting lambs, counting sheep
we will fall into sleep
and we awake to a new day of living
and loving you so.

[No Remorse]

No mercy for what we are doing
No thought to even what we have done
We don't need to feel the sorrow
No remorse for the helpless one

War without end

No remorse No repent
We don't care what it meant
Another day Another death
Another sorrow Another breath

Blood feeds the war machine
as it eats its way across the land
We don't need the feel the sorrow
No remorse is the one command

War without end

No remorse No repent
We don't care what it meant
Another day Another death
Another sorrow Another breath

Only the strong survive
No will to save the weaker race
We are ready to kill all comers
Like a loaded gun right at your face

War without end

No remorse No repent
We don't care what it meant
Another day Another death
Another sorrow Another breath

Attack!!

Bullets are flying
People are dying
with madness surrounding all hell's breaking loose

Soldiers are hounding
Bodies are mounting
cannons are shouting to take their abuse

With war machines going
Blood starts to flowing
No mercy given to anyone here

The furious fighting
Swords are like lighting
It all becomes frightening
You know death is near

No remorse

Cold wind to Valhalla

And ride with us young bonny lass ---
with the angels of the night.
Crack wind clatter --- flesh rein bite on an out-size
unicorn.
Rough-shod winging sky blue flight on a cold wind
to Valhalla.
And join with us please --- Valkyrie maidens cry
above the cold wind to Valhalla.
Break fast with the gods. Night angels serve
with ice-bound majesty.
Frozen flaking fish raw nerve ---
in a cup of silver liquid fire.
Moon jet brave beam split ceiling swerve and light
the old Valhalla.
Come join with us please --- Valkyrie maidens cry
above the cold wind to Valhalla.
The heroes rest upon the sighs of Thor's trusty
hand maidens.
Midnight lonely whisper cries,
``We're getting a bit short on heroes lately.''
Sword snap fright white pale goodbyes in the
desolation of Valhalla.
And join with us please --- Valkyrie maidens ride
empty-handed on the cold wind to Valhalla.

Yeah man, thats the Stuff

[Bob Dylan Original]

[Jimi Hendrix Cover Version]

"There must be some way out of here" said the joker to the thief
"There's too much confusion", I can't get no relief
Businessmen, they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth
None of them along the line know what any of it is worth.

"No reason to get excited", the thief he kindly spoke
"There are many here among us who feel that life is but a joke
But you and I, we've been through that, and this is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late".

All along the watchtower, princes kept the view
While all the women came and went, barefoot servants, too.

Outside in the distance a wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl.

Over the mountain, take me across the sky
Something in my vision, something deep inside
Where did I wander, where d'ya think I wandered to
I've seen life's magic astral plane I travel through

I heard them tell me that this land of dreams was now
I told them I had ridden shooting stars
And said I'd show them how

Over and over, always tried to get away
Living in a daydream, only place I had to stay
Fever of a breakout burning in me miles wide
People around me talking to the walls inside

I heard them tell me that this land of dreams was now
I told them I had ridden shooting stars
And said I'd show them how

Don't need no astrology, it's inside of you and me
You don't need a ticket to fly with me, I'm free, yeah

Over and under, in between the ups and downs
Mind on a carpet, magic ride goes 'round and round
Over the mountain, kissing silver inlaid clouds
Watching my body disappear into the crowd

I'm feeling this R.E.M. lately.

It's the end of the world as we know it

That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes,
an aeroplane - Lenny Bruce is not afraid.
Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn,
world serves its own needs, dummy serve your own needs.
Feed it off an aux speak,, grunt, no, strength,
The ladder starts to clatter with fear fight down height.
Wire in a fire, representing seven games, a government for hire and a combat site.
Left of west and coming in a hurry with the furies breathing down your neck.
Team by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered cropped.
Look at that low playing!
Fine, then.
Uh oh, overflow, population, common food, but it'll do.
Save yourself, serve yourself. World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed dummy with the rapture and the revered and the right - right.
You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright light, feeling pretty psyched.

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

Six o'clock - TV hour. Don't get caught in foreign towers.
Slash and burn, return, listen to yourself churn.
Locking in, uniforming, book burning, blood letting.
Every motive escalate. Automotive incinerate.
Light a candle, light a votive. Step down, step down.
Watch your heel crush, crushed. Uh-oh, this means no fear cavalier.
Renegade steer clear! A tournament, a tournament, a tournament of lies.
Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives and I decline.

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it. (It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it (It's time I had some time alone) and I feel fine.

The other night I dreamt of knives, continental drift divide. Mountains sit in a line
Leonard Bernstein. Leonid Brezhnev. Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs.
Birthday party, cheesecake, jelly bean, boom!
You symbiotic, patriotic, slam book neck, right? Right.

It's the end of the world as we know it. (It's time I had some time alone)

Speaking of R.E.M....I've got this tune on the pod right now. One of my faves by this band. Absolutely haunting.


E-Bow The Letter

Look up, what do you see? All of you and all of me
Fluorescent and starry
Some of them, they surprise
The bus ride, I went to write this, 4:00 a.m, this letter
Fields of poppies, little pearls
All the boys and all the girls sweet-toothed
Each and every one a little scary
I said your name

I wore it like a batch of teenage film stars
Hash bars, cherry mash and tinfoil tiaras
Dreaming of Maria Callas, whoever she is
This fame thing, I don't get it
I wrap my hand in plastic to try to look through it
Maybelline eyes and girl-as-boy moves
I can take you far
This star thing, I don't get it

I'll take you over there
I'll take you over there
Aluminum, tastes like fear
Adrenaline, it pulls us near
I'll take you over
It tastes like fear there, I'll take you over

Will you live to 83? Will you ever welcome me?
Will you show me something that nobody else has seen?
Smoke it, drink, here comes the flood
Anything to thin the blood
These corrosives do their magic slowly and sweet
Phone, eat it, drink, just another chink
Cuts and dents, they catch the light
Aluminum, the weakest link
I don't want to disappoint you
I'm not here to anoint you, I would lick your feet
But is that the sickest move?
I wear my own crown and sadness and sorrow
And who'd have thought tomorrow could be so strange?
My loss, and here we go again

I'll take you over there
I'll take you over there
Aluminum, tastes like fear
Adrenaline, it pulls us near
I'll take you over
It tastes like fear there, it holds us near
I'll take you over

Look up, what do you see? All of you and all of me
Fluorescent and starry
Some of them, they surprise
I can't look it in the eyes
Seconal, spanish fly, absinthe, kerosene
Cherry-flavored neck and collar
I can smell the sorrow on your breath
The sweat, the victory and sorrow, the smell of fear
I got it

I'll take you over there
I'll take you over there
Aluminum, tastes like fear
Adrenaline, it pulls us near
I'll take you over it tastes like fear there
I'll take you over

Pulls us near
Tastes like fear..

Nearer, nearer
over, over, over, over
Yeah, look over
I'll take you there, oh, yeah
I'll take you there
Oh, over
I'll take you there
Over, let me
I'll take you there..
There, there, baby, yeah

Gov’t Mule - after the Allman Brothers split up, the remaining band members started this band. Apparently has been ongoing for several years…although I just discovered them. I really like these guys . They are more of an “extended jam session” band the likes of that haven’t been seen since the 70’s. Dual lead guitars, great vocals and a touch of organ / piano w/ a lot bluesy-southern rock hooks. I stumbled onto them in the ipod database.

Free – all time classic rock band. Old stuff, but man, can Paul Rodgers belt out a tune or not?

Bad Company – more Paul Rodgers lead vocals

Linkin Park, Neil Young, Third Eye Blind among others.

I just recently received in the mail a CD I ordered made up for me from an old (OLD!) vinyl album recording released around 1969 or 70 I believe by actor/singer Michael Parks (the guy who starred in the short-lived series Then Came Bronson) called Long Lonesome Highway. It's a very good rendition... no pops, hisses, or distortions... cleanly reproduced under studio conditions by an outfit called Vinyl Revolution. It's not a cheap process (I think shipping included I paid $85 for it, but you get the original vinyl album and jacket, plus the newly recorded top quality CD), but for a Michael Parks fan like myself, it was worth every penny! I just stumbled on the website for these folks, and I lucked out. If anyone is interested in purchasing a hard-to-find (in this case non-existent!) CD recording of an old album, the web address for these guys is:
www.vinylrevolution.com
They are located in Butte, MT., and I can attest to the quality of their work smiley

The Outlaws / Green Grass and High Tides


In a place you only dream of, where your soul is always free
Silver stages, golden curtains, filled my head plain as could be
As a rainbow grew around the sun, all the stars I've loved, who died
Came from somewhere beyond the scene you see, these lovely people played just for me


Now if I let you see this place where stories all ring true
Then will you let me past your face to see what's really you
It's not for me I ask this question as though I were a king
For you have to love, believe and feel, before the burst of tambourines take you there

{Refrain}
Green grass and high tides forever
Castles of stone, soul and glory
Lost faces say we adore you
As kings and queens bow and play for you


Those who don't believe me, find your souls and set them free
Those who do, believe and know that time will be your key
Time and time again I've thanked them for a peace of mind
That helped me find myself amongst the music and the rhyme that enchants you there

About the only thing I do not listen to is rap and heavy metal.

Sounds like a nice variety. I LOVE Peter, Paul & Mary! Saw them live in concert many times in the "old days", and let me tell you, they were consumate musicians. They sounded every bit as good in person as they did on their records... better! Plus their hearts were totally in what they did, and they drew their audience in as participants as well. A PP & M concert was not just a
night of entertainment... it was a cause!

I often am on my computer very early in the morning before anyone else in my household is awake, so i can't play music, but I'm a music addict, so even when I an't play it out loud, I hear the strains of it in my head smiley I even have a set of hand made tiny brass windchimes hanging from the rear view mirror in my car... how "California" is that??!!!!

I sometimes even like to listen to classical on the PBS stations. [Pssst! I don't listen to heavy metal or rap either. Music is defined as organized sound, directed toward beauty. By definition, heavy metal and rap don't qualify! wink ]

I should have added classical to my abbreviated list above of my favorite genres.

It is a difficult piece to learn and sing, and of course they are singing in German, not a translation.

Another awesome classic by Ozzy and Co. This song really kicks into gear at about 3:09 minute mark. Just some really great rock & roll, if you ask me. Yeah the lyrics are sick, but it's the Oz-Man... this song is most notable for it's music!

Album: Sabotage

[Megolamania]

I hide myself inside the shadows of shame
The silent symphonies were playing their game
My body echoed to the dreams of my soul
This god is something that I could not control

Where can I run to now?
The joke is on me
No sympathizing god is insanity, yeah
Why don't you just get out of my life, yeah?
Why don't you just get out of my life now?
Why doesn't everybody leave me alone now?
Why doesn't everybody leave me alone, yeah?

Obsessed with fantasy, possessed with my schemes
I mixed reality with super-rod dreams
The ghost of violence was something I seen
I sold my soul to be the human obscene

How could this poison be
The dream of my soul
How did my fantasies take complete control, yeah?
Why don't you just get out of my life, yeah?
Why don't you just get out of my life now?
Why doesn't everybody leave me alone now?
Why doesn't everybody leave me alone, yeah?

Well I feel something's taken me I don't know where
It's like a trip inside a separate mind
The ghost of tomorrow from my favorite dream
Is telling me to leave it all behind
Feel it slipping away, slipping in tomorrow
Got to get to happiness, want no more of sorrow

How I lied, went to hide
How I tried to get away from you now
Am I right if I fight?
That I might just get away from you now
Sting me!

Well I feel something's giving me the chance to return
It's giving me the chance of saving my soul
Beating the demigod, I'm fading away
I'm going backwards but I'm in control
Feel it slipping away, slipping in tomorrow
Getting back to sanity, providence of sorrow

Was it wise to disguise
How I tried to get away from you now
Is there a way that I could pay
Or is it true I have to stay with you now?

How I lied, went to hide
How I tried to get away from you now
Am I right if I fight?
That I might just get away from you now

I'm really digging schizophrenia the best of the earth
I've singed my soul in the fires of hell
Peace of mind eluded me, but now it's all mine
I simply try, but he wants me to fail
Feel it slipping away, slipping in tomorrow
Now I've found my happiness, providence of sorrow

No more lies, I got wise
I despise the way I worshiped you yeah
Now I'm free, can't you see
And now instead I won't be led by you now
Free!

I've been listening to quite a bit of new and alternative rock lately. I had pretty much given up on the genre for many years and had fallen back into my old mainstay of the 60 &70's.

But there are some good bands coming up these days. One of my favorites is Nickelback. Canadian band out of Calgary, I believe. The lead singer's raspy vocals are backed up with great harmony from the other member of the band. Great musicians too.

I really like the following.

Raf

"If Everyone Cared"

From underneath the trees, we watch the sky
Confusing stars for satellites
I never dreamed that you'd be mine
But here we are, we're here tonight

Singing Amen, I, I'm alive
Singing Amen, I, I'm alive

[Chorus:]
If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day when nobody died

And I'm singing

Amen I, Amen I, I'm alive
Amen I, Amen I, Amen I, I'm alive

And in the air the fireflies
Our only light in paradise
We'll show the world they were wrong
And teach them all to sing along

Singing Amen, I, I'm alive
Singing Amen, I, I'm alive
(I'm alive)

[Chorus x2]

And as we lie beneath the stars
We realize how small we are
If they could love like you and me
Imagine what the world could be

If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day when nobody died
When nobody died...

[Chorus]

We'd see the day, we'd see the day
When nobody died
We'd see the day, we'd see the day
When nobody died
We'd see the day when nobody died

Still my guitar gently weeps

Great song Raf!!

Whenever I see a busker like that I always think of Seasick Steve. I was the first to post the following video on Youtube (an hour or so after it was first shown) and had nearly a million hits in a matter of weeks, alas this was yet another one of my accounts that YouTube unceremoniously nuked. (More details here).

Anyhoo….. Here’s the video, bear in mind this guy was a (self-confessed) hobo until not that long before this aired in 2007 but more importantly he has three strings on his ‘gee-tar’ and a wooden box for accompaniment!!

The ‘fullness’ of the sound is simply unbelievable (and it’s live!!)

Crank it up & enjoy…..

Album: Endgame

[Endgame]

Attention! Attention!
All citizens are ordered to report to their District detention centers!
Do not return to your homes;
Do not contact anyone!
Do not use any cellular or GPS devices!
Surrender all weapons at once!
Attention! This way to the camps!

I woke up in a black FEMA box
Darkness was all around me, in my coffin
My dreams are all nightmares anymore
And this is what I dream every night

The Leader of the New World Order, the President of the United States
Has declared anyone now residing inside the US of A
Without the RFID chip, you're just an illegal alien
An enemy combatant of America, welcome to the New World Order

This is the end of the road; this is the end of the line
This is the end of your life; this is the...

A society in a society, inside the fence life as you know it stops
They got their rules of conduct and we got ours
Be quick or be dead, you crumble up and die, the clock is
Ticking so slowly and so much can happen in an hour

This is the end of the road; this is the end of the line
This is the end of your life; this is the Endgame

I learned my lessons the hard way, every scar I earned
I had to bleed, inside the day yard
A system of controlled movement, like a giant ant farm
Any time is long time, now you're not in charge of your time anymore

This is the end of the road; this is the end of the line
This is the end of your life; this is the end

The Ex-President signed a secret bill that can
Land a legal US Citizen in jail and the
Patriot act stripped away our constitutional rights
They say a Concentration camp just popped up, yeah, right!

Refuse the chip? Ha! Get persecute and beat by the
Tyranny of Mind control, for the mark of the beast
All rights removed, you're punished captured, and enslaved
Believe me when I say, "This IS the Endgame!"

Oh Doc,

That was a high school anthem: Spoiled by excessive overplaying. I simply cannot listen to it anymore! tongue

Instead, I am listening to this classic Ed Sullivan TV broadcast from The Animals:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TfxSrlj7dc&feature=PlayList&p=DEF4770270BC9426&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=45

One of my favorites from the '60s. The song that plays directly after is also great, even if the video is a really spiritless lip-sync.....

Here is another of my favorite Animals songs from a vintage TV show. The cheesy video is a scream. Notice Eric falling behind on the lyrics and missing a que..... whoops! But that is live TV:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNzmrEgz_GI&feature=related

Also check out this great vintage live performance by Eric Burdon of the great Sam & Dave classic, "Hold On, I'm Coming". Introduced, I believe, by none other than the great Otis Redding. Looks like he is having fun!

And your will's sinkin' low
Just believe and you can't go wrong.
In the light you will find the road.
You will find the road

Oh, did you ever believe that I could leave you,
standing out in the cold
I know how it feels 'cause I have slipped through
to the very depths of my soul.
Baby, I just want to show you what a clear view it is from every bend in the road.
Now listen to me
Oh, whoa-whoa,
as I was and really would be for you, too, honey
As you would for me, oh, I would share your load.
Let me share your load. Ooh, let me share, share your load

And if you feel that you can't go on
In the light you will find the road

Though the winds of change may blow around you,
but that will always be so
When love is pain it can devour you,
if you are never alone
I would share your load. I would share your load
Baby, let me, oh, let me

Everybody needs the light.

Glory of Love



Tonight it's very clear
As we're both lying here
There's so many things I want to say
I will always love you
I would never leave you alone

Sometimes I just forget
Say things I might regret
It breaks my heart to see you crying
I don't wanna lose you
I could never make it alone

I am a man who will fight for your honor
I'll be the hero you're dreaming of
We'll live forever
Knowing together that we
Did it all for the glory of love

You'll keep me standing tall
You'll help me through it all
I'm always strong when you're beside me
I have always needed you
I could never make it alone

I am a man who will fight for your honor
I'll be the hero you've been dreaming of
We'll live forever
Knowing together that we
Did it all for the glory of love

Just like a knight in shining armor
From a long time ago
Just in time I will save the day
Take you to my castle far away

I am a man who will fight for your honor
I'll be the hero you're dreaming of
We're gonna live forever
Knowing together that we
Did it all for the glory of love

We'll live forever
Knowing together that we
Did it all for the glory of love

We did it all for love
We did it all for love
We did it all for love
We did it all for love

After The Love Has Gone,
performed by Earth Wind and Fire.




For awhile to love was all we could do
we were young and we knew
and our eyes were alive
Deep inside we knew our love was true
For awhile we paid no mind to the past
we knew love would last
Ev'ry night somethin' right
would invite us to begin the dance

Somethin' happened along the way
what used to be happy was sad
Somethin' happened along the way
and yesterday was all we had
And oh after the love has gone
how could you lead me on
and not let me stay around
Oh oh oh afterthe love has gone
what used to be right is wrong
Can love that's lost be found

For awhile to love each other with all
we would ever need
Love was strong for so long
never knew that what was
wrong oh baby wasn't right
We tried to find what we had
till sadness was all we shared
We were scared this affair would lead our love into
Somethin' happened along the way
yesterday was all we had
Somethin' happened along the way
what used to be happy is sad

Somethin' happened along the way
oh yesterday was all we had
And oh after the love has gone
how could you lead me on
and not let me stay around
Oh oh oh after the love has gone
what used to be right is wrong
Can love that's lost be found

Oh oh oh oh oh oh after the love has gone
what used to be right is wrong
Can love that's lost be found
Oh woh woh after the love has gone
what used to be right is wrong
Can love that's lost be found

Oh woh woh after the love has gone
what used to be right is wrong
Can love that's lost be found
Oh woh woh
Oh woh woh after the love has gone

Baloff wasn't a very good singer, but he made up for it in being an over-the-top metal frontman. Sometimes it's how you present yourself (sort of like Venom). I saw Exodus a year ago with their new singer. One of the best shows I've ever been to. Front row too. I was just inches away from Gary Holt the whole time.

My favorite Sacred Reich songs are The Power of the Written Word and American Way. The former is a ridiculously brutal song and American Way has some very in-your-face lyrics.

Danzig- "Left Hand Black"

I'm a travelin' man

A time out of time, for you and no one else.

Hey let's go all over the world,
Rock and Roll Girls, Rock and Roll Girls.

Yeah, yeah, yeah!

If I had my way, I'd shuffle off to Buffalo;
Sit by the lake, and watch the world go by.

Like flowers on the sand, a rainbow in my mind.

I play drums & love music but did not expect to see it here?

I have Just joined this site having been blocked from talking on a previous site because i got overexcited about footage that i filmed & was accused of spreading hysteria & being hysterical ...& being over exuberant with posting smileys ..

The moderator did not have the time patience or decency to give me a chance to bring forward my Proof",, Instead choosing to ridicule me & shame me in a public forum!!
Which has put me off showing them anything if they ever overturn my ban that is.

When i do eventually get my video on the web or the news!

I hope they wake up & apologize!

Hopefully this site will show me more respect!

& i look forward to showing my video to Everyone.

Anyway if your Really interested on stuff thats happening right now!

then i can tell you its all happening above the city of Manchester England!!!

nearly every clear or part clear night i am seeing the same type ufo & their busily travelling from one reservoir to another.

i have actual video of them pretending to be helicopters then traveling across Manchester & coming to a stop then morphing into a star looking object & staying there till it got light in the morning but just like stars they disappeared with the light! the whole video is 3 hours long with sound & i managed to film 15 + of these UFOs

when i was a full member on the other site uk.ufo.com forum

i trusted them with my experiences with poltergeists & similar which if you visit that site you will read.

but my biggest mistake which is why i think the moderator & possibly others didnt quite take me seriously was that because i had no evidence of a VERY close encounter last year with 4 UFOs 1 of which came right over to check me out!!!,,

& i drew an amateur but accurate picture of what i witnessed i think doing that spoilt things for me from the start but i can tell you this till im blue in the face & pass out ,, i REALLY did see this close up!!, check out my posts & weebly site i created & posted .. oh & sorry for going on about the other site in a bad light!!, i Really did & still do enjoy reading posts there & its just a shame they decided to delete my Manchester post & decide to not take me Seriously!

I was forced to sit on an Air Canada flight for 8 hours on the way back home to Toronto from the Czech Republic a couple of months ago and watched "Flight 666", a doc about Iron Maiden touring the world in 2008 and i have to say it was great.

I didn't know much about Maiden, but i have to say i thoroughly enjoyed it and wouldn't mind seeing them live this summer. I would recommend it to anyone that enjoys some good old fashioned rock and roll from time to time from one of the legends.

[Gallows Pole]

Hangman, hangman, hold it a little while,
Think I see my friends coming, Riding a many mile.
Friends, did you get some silver?
Did you get a little gold?
What did you bring me, my dear friends, To keep me from the Gallows Pole?
What did you bring me to keep me from the Gallows Pole?

I couldn't get no silver, I couldn't get no gold,
You know that we're too damn poor to keep you from the Gallows Pole.
Hangman, hangman, hold it a little while,
I think I see my brother coming, riding a many mile.
Brother, did you get me some silver?
Did you get a little gold?
What did you bring me, my brother, to keep me from the Gallows Pole?

Brother, I brought you some silver,
I brought a little gold, I brought a little of everything
To keep you from the Gallows Pole.
Yes, I brought you to keep you from the Gallows Pole.

Hangman, hangman, turn your head awhile,
I think I see my sister coming, riding a many mile, mile, mile.
Sister, I implore you, take him by the hand,
Take him to some shady bower, save me from the wrath of this man,
Please take him, save me from the wrath of this man, man.

Hangman, hangman, upon your face a smile,
Pray tell me that I'm free to ride,
Ride for many mile, mile, mile.

Oh, yes, you got a fine sister, She warmed my blood from cold,
Brought my blood to boiling hot To keep you from the Gallows Pole,
Your brother brought me silver, Your sister warmed my soul,
But now I laugh and pull so hard And see you swinging on the Gallows Pole

Swingin' on the gallows pole!

[Achilles Last Stand]


It was an April morning when they told us we should go
As I turn to you, you smiled at me
How could we say no?

With all the fun to have, to live the dreams we always had
Oh, the songs to sing, when we at last return again

Sending off a glancing kiss, to those who claim they know
Below the streets that steam and hiss,
The devil's in his hole

Oh to sail away, To sandy lands and other days
Oh to touch the dream, Hides inside and never seen.

Into the sun the south the north, at last the birds have flown
The shackles of commitment fell, In pieces on the ground

Oh to ride the wind, To tread the air above the din
Oh to laugh aloud, Dancing as we fought the crowd

To seek the man whose pointing hand, The giant step unfolds
With guidance from the curving path, That churns up into stone

If one bell should ring, in celebration for a king
So fast the heart should beat, As proud the head with heavy feet.

Days went by when you and I, bathed in eternal summers glow
As far away and distant, Our mutual child did grow

Oh the sweet refrain, Soothes the soul and calms the pain
Oh Albion remains, sleeping now to rise again

Wandering & wandering, What place to rest the search
The mighty arms of Atlas, Hold the heavens from the earth

The mighty arms of Atlas, Hold the heavens from the earth
From the earth...

I know the way, know the way, know the way, know the way [X2]

Oh the mighty arms of Atlas, Hold the heavens from the earth.

[Can't Stop]


There's a place I try to go, so far from here
I close my eyes, I try to, to disappear
I look around in my own way
But what I see I never, never really know

I wander 'round until I feel it coming on
And then it's, it's time to go
I don't want to be here falling out of place
Confusion's the consensus, fighting for my space

And then you make me open my eyes and come back
All I wanted was some time, some time to think, that's all I needed
I would have been okay with just a little time
My time not your time, you never have time

I want to know why I tried
You're probably here right now waiting
Waiting for that moment to ambush me
Swallow my hopes, crush my confidence
Pull me down, pull me down lower than you ever have before

Just see if you grab my heart and rip it out
And then you chew on and spit it out
Throw it over the ground and stomp all over it
Laughing, laughing hysterically, tellin' me to do something

Knowing that I won't, knowing that I can't
Knowing that you're me and I'm you
And I can never hate you as much as you hate me
Knowing the weaker I get, the stronger you are
Knowing how weak I am, knowing how strong you are

Can't stop the running, can't stop the running
The runaway emotions in me
Now you got them running, can't stop the running
The runaway emotions in me

I lived it, I live it, it's not easy to say
I felt it, I feel it, it's just another day
It scares me, why does it dare me?
You know it ain't a fair fight
Pain overtakes me, it tries to break me
You know that something ain't right

Now you got 'em running, can't stop the running
The runaway emotions in me
Now you got 'em running, can't stop the running
The runaway emotions in me, set my body free

They don't make no seat-belt for the mind
So I can't fasten up for this ride

Running away, can't stop the runaway emotions
Not right, can't fight, can't stop the runaway emotions
Fighting, hiding, can't stop the runaway emotions
Hypnotized, paralyzed, can't stop the runaway emotions

I was scared, I am scared
I know it but I'm not afraid to admit it
Se being scared it don't bother me
It's just a feeling, I can deal with that
I know what it is
It's what I don't know, what I can't feel that's what bothers me
That's what really scares me
See right now I'm scared, really scared
'Cause I can feel it, emotionally paralyzed, light headed

Like you know when you got a pass out, actually I wish I would
You know kind of like when you gotta sneeze, the relief it brings
Just waiting, waiting for something to happen
Waiting for that moment to renew a [Incomprehensible]
See the moment takes you nowhere

Nowhere's where I'm at, right now, nowhere's where you're at
Nowhere's is what you bring to me
Nowhere's like an itch that you can't scratch, like an itch in the brain
But when you finally figure out a way to scratch it, just itches more

Can't stop the running, can't stop the running
The runaway emotions in me
Now you got them running, can't stop the running
The runaway emotions in me

I hate it, I hate me, like my consistency
I've seen it, I see it, I'm talking literally
So much lying, too much denying
It's time to face the facts
You can't help me, these cards will dealt me
They are the final act

Now you got 'em running, can't stop the running
The runaway emotions in me
Now you got 'em running, can't stop the running
The runaway emotions in me, set my body free

Oh no, you really done it this time

Can't stop the runaway emotions
Can't stop the runaway emotions
Can't stop the runaway emotions
Can't stop the runaway emotions

There's a place I try to go, so far from here
I close my eyes but I can't, can't disappear

So I'm back, to the velvet underground
Back to the floor, that I love
To a room with some lace and paper flowers
Back to the gypsy that I was
To the gypsy... that I was

And it all comes down to you
Well, you know that it does
Well, lightning strikes, maybe once, maybe twice
Ah, and it lights up the night
And you see your gypsy
You see your gypsy

To the gypsy that remains faces freedom with a little fear
I have no fear, I have only love
And if I was a child
And the child was enough
Enough for me to love
Enough to love

She is dancing away from me now
She was just a wish
She was just a wish
And a memory is all that is left for you now
You see your gypsy
You see your gypsy

Lightning strikes, maybe once, maybe twice
And it all comes down to you

And it all comes down to you

Lightning strikes, maybe once, maybe twice
And it all comes down to you

I still see your bright eyes, bright eyes
And it all comes down to you
I still see your bright eyes, bright eyes
And it all comes down to you

I still see your bright eyes, bright eyes
(She was just a wish)
(She was just a wish)
And it all comes down to you

Strange days have found us
Strange days have tracked us down
They're going to destroy
Our casual joys
We shall go on playing
Or find a new town

Yeah!

Strange eyes fill strange rooms
Voices will signal their tired end
The hostess is grinning
Her guests sleep from sinning
Hear me talk of sin
And you know this is it

Yeah!

Strange days have found us
And through their strange hours
We linger alone
Bodies confused
Memories misused
As we run from the day
To a strange night of stone

Well we all have a face
That we hide away forever
And we take them out and show ourselves
When everyone has gone
Some are satin some are steel
Some are silk and some are leather
They're the faces of the stranger

But we love to try them on
Well, we all fall in love
But we disregard the danger
Though we share so many secrets
There are some we never tell
Why were you so surprised
That you never saw the stranger

Did you ever let your lover see
The stranger in yourself?
Don't be afraid to try again
Everyone goes south
Every now and then
You've done it, why can't someone else?
You should know by now
You've been there yourself

Once I used to believe
I was such a great romancer
Then I came home to a woman
That I could not recognize
When I pressed her for a reason
She refused to even answer
It was then I felt the stranger
Kick me right between the eyes

Well, we all fall in love
But we disregard the danger
Though we share so many secrets
There are some we never tell
Why were you so surprised
That you never saw the stranger
Did you ever let your lover see
The stranger in yourself?

Don't be afraid to try again
Everyone goes south
Every now and then
You've done it why can't someone else?
You should know by now
You've been there yourself

You may never understand
How the stranger is inspired
But he isn't always evil
And he isn't always wrong
Though you drown in good intentions
You will never quench the fire
You'll give in to your desire
When the stranger comes along

User Image

In a foreign field he lay
Lonely soldier, unknown grave
On his dying words he prays
Tell the world of Paschendale

Relive all that he's been through
Last communion of his soul
Rust your bullets with his tears
Let me tell you 'bout his years

Laying low in a blood filled trench
Kill time 'til my very own death
On my face I can feel the falling rain
Never see my friends again

In the smoke, in the mud and lead
Smell the fear and the feeling of dread
Soon be time to go over the wall
Rapid fire and end of us all

Whistles, shouts and more gun fire
Lifeless bodies hang on barbed wire
Battlefield nothing but a bloody tomb
Be reunited with my dead friends soon

Many soldiers eighteen years
Drown in mud, no more tears
Surely a war no-one can win
Killing time about to begin

Home, far away
From the war, a chance to live again
Home, far away
But the war, no chance to live again

The bodies of ours and our foes
The sea of death it overflows
In no man's land, God only knows
Into jaws of death we go

Crucified as if on a cross
Allied troops they mourn their loss
German war propaganda machine
Such before has never been seen

Swear I heard the angels cry
Pray to god no more may die
So that people know the truth
Tell the tale of Paschendale

Cruelty has a human heart
Every man does play his part
Terror of the men we kill
The human heart is hungry still

I stand my ground for the very last time
Gun is ready as I stand in line
Nervous wait for the whistle to blow
Rush of blood and over we go

Blood is falling like the rain
Its crimson cloak unveils again
The sound of guns can't hide their shame
And so we die on Paschendale

Dodging shrapnel and barbed wire
Running straight at cannon fire
Running blind as I hold my breath
Say a prayer symphony of death

As we charge the enemy lines
A burst of fire and we go down
I choke a cry but no-one hears
Feel the blood go down my throat

Home, far away
From the war, a chance to live again
Home, far away
But the war, no chance to live again

Home, far away
From the war, a chance to live again
Home, far away
But the war, no chance to live again

See my spirit on the wind
Across the lines, beyond the hill
Friend and foe will meet again
Those who died at Paschendale

Awesome piece! I love the classical sound. I'm an aging hippie who was introduced to the genre by Jon Lord, back around 1970. I was amazed by how much it had in common with the high quality, underground rock of the day. The stuff that never made the popular radio? Yeah, music which becomes far more popular years after it was written, just like classical.

It's a shame that the good stuff doesn't sell like gangbusters, isn't it? Thanks again for the music.

Take care

[For What It's Worth]


There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

There's battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

I think it's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

What a field-day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, hooray for our side

It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away

We better stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, now, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Off through the new day's mist I run
Off from the new day's mist I have come
I hunt
Therefore I am
Harvest the land
Taking of the fallen lamb

Off through the new day's mist I run
Off from the new day'smist I have come
We shift
Pulsing with the earth
Company we keep
Roaming the land while you sleep

Shape shift nose to the wind
Shape shift feeling I've been
Move swift all senses clean
Earth's gift back to the meaning of life

Bright is the moon high in starlight
Chill is the air cold as steel tonight
We shift
Call of the wild
Fear in your eyes
It's later than you realized

Shape shift nose to the wind
Shape shift feeling I've been
Move swift all senses clean
Earth's gift back to the meaning of life

I feel I change
Back to a better day
Hair stands on the back of my neck
In wildness is the preservation of the world

So seek the wolf in thyself

Shape shift nose to the wind
Shape shift feeling I've been
Move swift all senses clean
Earth's gift
Back to the meaning of wolf and man

I've been drivin' all night, my hands are wet on the wheel.
There's a voice in my head that drives my heel.
My baby call said I need you here.
It's half past four and I'm shifting gears.

When she's lonely and the longing gets too much,
She sends a cable coming in from above.
Don't need no phone at all.
We got a thing that's called radar love
We got a wave in the air
Radar love

The radio's playin' some forgotten song.
Brenda Lee's coming on strong.
The road has got me hypnotized,
As I spin into a new sunrise.

When I get lonely and I'm sure I've had enough,
She sends comfort coming in from above.
Don't need no letters at all.
We got a thing that's called radar love
We got a line in the sky
Radar love

No more speed I'm almost there.
Gotta keep cool, now, gotta take care.
Last car to pass, here I go.
The line of cars drove down real slow.
The radio plays that forgotten song.
Brenda Lee's coming on strong.
The news man sang his same song,
One more radar lover gone.

When I'm feeling lonely and I'm sure I've had enough.
She sends the comfort coming in from above.
Don't need no radio at all
We got a thing that's called radar love
We got a light in the sky
We got a thing and its called radar love

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTDsDlU38as&feature=related


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.

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.

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.

I used to listen to Weather Report while in college and I have several lp/cd's by them so that's why I knew his name ,but I do have an extensive collection mostly of prog rock and psychedelic rock with some classic rock, folk,jazz ,and even classical mixed in.
Actually for me Weather Report is not very obscure.

Here's one I am currently into....


Re: What music are you listening to now?
Post by icepick on Mar 21st, 2011, 7:32pm

There is a distinct difference between what the general public sees as obscure, and what a true audiophile sees as obscure (very little). And, of course, it also really helps to live in a section of the USA where the music network of the major universities have been in use for broadcasting programs to train their pupils. I outright cringe at the thought of what impact that might have on our diversity of styles and quality. It sounds like you may have been exposed to that cornucopia of diversity yourself during university days? Up here, the U radio out of Seattle is powerful enough to reach the outlying areas, but the rumor afoot is that it might take some donations to maintain our local radio to the levels we are accustomed to. Time will tell.

it´s getting dark... too soon... a threatening silence...
surrounding me... a wind comes up from the islands...
distance fades to stormy grey
washed out from the deep of the ocean
here I will stand to face your wrath...
while all the others are praying

calm down my heart... don´t beat so fast...
don´t be afraid just once in a lifetime
no rain can wash away my tears
no wind can soothe my pain
you made me doubt, you made me fear
but now I´m not the same
you took my wife, my unborn son...
torn into the deep of the ocean
I don´t pretend that I love you
´cause there is nothing left to loose

and when silence comes back to me
I find myself feeling lonely
standing here on the shores of destiny
I find myself feeling lonely
I had a life to give... many dreams to live...
don´t you know that you´re losing so much this time
beyond the waves... I will be free
while all the others are praying

calm down my heart...

the love in you, it does not burn,
there is no lesson you can learn
and there are sounds you cannot hear,
and there are feelings you can´t feel

calm down my heart... don´t beat so fast...
don´t be afraid just once in a lifetime

I don´t pretend that I love you
and this time I´m not scared of you

[Children of the Grave]

Revolution in their minds - the children start to march
Against the world in which they have to live
and all the hate that's in their hearts
They're tired of being pushed around
and told just what to do
They'll fight the world until they've won
and love comes flowing through

Children of tomorrow live in the tears that fall today
Will the sun rise up tomorrow bringing peace in any way?
Must the world live in the shadow of atomic fear?
Can they win the fight for peace or will they disappear?

So you children of the world,
listen to what I say
If you want a better place to live in
spread the words today
Show the world that love is still alive
you must be brave

Thanks for the tip. I gave up on them after a bit. Didn't even sound like them anymore.

There were quite a few bands did that to us in the 80s. But if you stopped to look at the lineup you would often find the problem. Only original member would be the drummer or something like that. Worst case I ever saw was when Deep Purple went on hiatus in the late 70s. One day a DJ played something that was supposed to be new Purple, but it was more like WTF? I called the station and found out that there wasn't a single member except some bass player they kicked out in the 60s. Took a lot of guts to try and pull that one off. Tactless.

Second would be what happened to Yes in my opinion. You at least have to keep the core sound don't you? Or maybe I'm just picky. Who knows?

No..I agree that once the core players leave it's just not the same sound .
I thought Yes was solid until after Going For The One...
Tormato and the rest just didn't have that same feel. But many of the core people were on the later ones.

[A Hazy Shade of Winter - Original]

[The Bangles cover version 1987]

Time, time, time, see what's become of me.
While I looked around for my possibilities,
I was so hard to please.
But look around, the leaves are brown,
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter.
Hear the salvation army band
Down by the riverside, it's bound to be a better ride
Than what you've got planned,
Carry your cup in your hand.
And look around you, the leaves are brown now,
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter.
Hang on to your hopes, my friend.
That's an easy thing to say but if your hopes should pass away,
It's simply pretend, that you can build them again.
Look around, the grass is high, the fields are ripe,
It's the springtime of my life.
Oh, seasons change with scenery,
Weaving time in a tapestry,
Won't you stop and remember me?
At any convenient time.
Funny how my memory skips while looking over manuscripts
Of unpublished rhyme,
Drinking my vodka and rhyme.
I look around, the leaves are brown,
There's a patch of snow on the ground,
Look around...

You're absolutely right. There was a point where they simply weren't the same anymore. Despite, as you pointed out, having a decent sampling of core people. But sometimes a band's sound is heavily dependent on every member. Even drummers and bass players. In some cases, especially drummers and bass players. It just depends on how creative they are, doesn't it? And at other times just one member is important. Might I offer Elf for an example? Of course they highly benefited (for one album) when they added Blackmore and changed their name, but for years before that Dio proved to be the important factor.

I can still remember the night Hendrix almost knocked me out of bed too. It was like WTF IS THAT? After those first folks kicked the door down, we certainly got a lot of great music for a lot of years.

I was just remembering another band I used to listen to. Gentle Giant, ever get into their music?

True. But the same can be said for much of the music we've been discussing. Like Genesis from the Peter Gabriel days. The fact that you have some of their music answers my question though.

You only have a couple of years on me. Aside from the fact that I've developed this thing some people call a gift which has forced me over to the center of the political road, I'd say we're pretty much the same. And political stance is but a minor issue for people born in that era. Those political views often swing to what makes sense the bulk of the time anyway. It was a great time to grow up in my opinion. Now if we could only have a chain of 300,000 strong outdoor festivals in our present day and age .............

GForce; Humble Pie was a good rock n' roll band.

I really liked that version of the JT song. There is another live video on youtube where it is in the 1970's and it is a flute solo that is just nuts! I'll post it if i see it again. smiley

Benefit is my favorite album of Tull... I really liked the 1999 J-Tull dot com album too though.

Re: What music are you listening to now?
Post by icepick on Apr 7th, 2011, 07:46am

Carole King? I really wouldn't know. My tastes in music has always stayed outside of the commercial realm pretty much. Only a few selected artists who tend to wind up there anyway are included on my list.

No, it isn't a prejudice. It's just worked out that way for some reason or other. Maybe it comes from growing up in the mountains of Virginia. Where every Saturday Night after dinner always turned into a footstomp with all the people who were present who could play joining in.

Of course I was at least twelve before I discovered what was in that jug that all those thirsty adults kept horning off of. grin

But yeah, that was probably it. Saturday Night was always for music, and Grandpa always led with his homemade fiddle. On Sunday some of the folks went to church if they could function. Then it was hair of the dog time, and usually a big pile of fried chicken. The next day was "up yours" and back to work. Or school in my case. Man but those headaches were murder when you got older.

Sorry about that off topic spiel there Hal. I just thought I would explain how my musical tastes were born. Mainly because it would be so unusual for most people. You see, it was pretty (VERY) isolated up in those hills. TV didn't really make it in there until the early 1960s. So the weekends were party time, where ever the clan could gather. Ours was huge. We split up into maybe twenty different groups (380 people through 3rd cousin). But after some of us discovered rock and roll, it screwed things up. The older folks couldn't handle our Marshal Amps and Gibson SGs. Or whatever you played. I was a B3 Hammond. That really didn't fit Bluegrass. Yeah, we were those dope smokin' black sheep. Oh well ............

But not by me.

I actually prefer live cuts 99% of the time. There was only a few bands that couldn't seem to pull their stuff off live. Most of them actually add more live. Some especially were that way. Like Free, the Stones, Savoy Brown, Uriah Heep ..... just to name a few. Others you simply should only listen to live because that was what they were all about. Like Ten Years After, Deep Purple, Foghat .....

On the other hand, I was a concert junkie, so maybe I'm prejudiced. grin

I'm a huge fan of prog rock including the obscure things though that lp was fairly common when I was at college.
I liked some Motown in the old days and I used to have quite a few singles on 45.

Actually, I thought that video was cool. Hated the song though.

Alanis sings her heart out. Unfortunately not to the quality of Janis or somebody like that. But she definitely earns her points for effort. I think where she got herself in trouble was during that political phase. It's not the sixties anymore, and a generation just hasn't been able to develop a consensus since those days. After issues like Sinead Occonor or the Dixie Chicks ran into? It's probably wisest for performers to keep quiet about their opinions these days.

They're entitled to have them. But it seems like their pocketbooks suffer if they vocalize. With what the RIAA has done to them in recent years, they can ill afford that.

And in my humble opinion, the RIAA has almost killed rock and roll in America. But wasn't that their all time record Golden Goose? Idiocy knows no bounds. grin grin

Heep? That's tough. I've always loved Salisbury, Demons & Wizards, and the Magician's Birthday. But I also like the stuff like Look At Yourself too, so you tell me.

BTW, their 1973 Live CD which they recorded in Birmingham, England is an absolutely killer live recording. But Deep Purple has two live shows other than the Made in Japan cut that top just about any live cuts I've ever heard. But you have to consider the fact that live shows is what that group was always about. They're the Grateful Dead of Hard Rock. I remember being able to catch them at least twice a year back around 1972 on the eastern seaboard. Nobody but nobody could tear up a keyboard of any type like Jon Lord. Definitely some of the best concerts ever came out of them. And I'm definitely a qualified judge. This concertaholic caught any show that was available back then. Well, within about 900 miles of Southwest Virginia that is. Roughly 1.25 shows a week or something like that. I wore out three vans before I left that area in 1974. I saw Bull's Island, Ann Arbor, Rockingham and a ton of major festivals too. But no Woodstock. I was too busy getting my butt shot off in SE Asia.

Those 3 you named are my favorite Heep also.
Saw Deep Purple open up for Rod Stewart & The Faces in Chicago (in 1973?).
Sounds like you saw many more shows than I managed to see in the old days. I lived in Indiana 45 miles south of Chicago but was at IU Bloomington from 69-75. Did see some great acts there but unfortunately I was in college and had class when many good shows were happening elsewhere.
Re: What music are you listening to now?
Post by icepick on Jul 13th, 2011, 10:17am

Yeah, I saw a lot of shows. I would buy a ticket for any genre except bubble gum. Music is music, and if the performer is perfectionist? Well all of the supergroups were that, right? But today the ticket prices alone would kill me. I was going to go to the Eagles reunion tour, but then I saw that $400 price at Ticketmaster. Nobody is worth $400 unless they've come back from the grave.

I think that Faces Purple tour was actually 1969. Once In Rock came out nobody was able to stick on the same stage with Purple until Nazareth in 1974. Everytime I saw them they were the lone name on the venue except for one tour they did with Tuckey Buzzard in 1972. No band likes getting booed off the stage, and Purple fans developed a nasty habit of doing that as soon as somebody hit a sour note. Cream even got that treatment on their farewell tour for crapsake. What's wrong with people anyway? It's pretty rude to dump on a performer like that just because they don't quite measure up in my book. There's such a thing as courtesy ya know.

However, I saw three Zeppelin concerts where I would have given somebody the gun if they wanted to drag them out back and shoot them. I was a huge Zep fan until I saw those concerts. I guess they were just a studio band. Sides, Plant has an ego that won't fit in any stadium. That can be tough to take.

They were the only group that ever truly disappointed me though. Usually I got surprised. Like the time Billy Preston came to the local college at Wise. That guy knew how to put on a show!

Never saw Faces unfortunately. Were they any good?

'69..? Could have been, I guess my memory is bad.
I don't have a problem with bands being a bit off since it's hard to always recreate the same sound live especially in the old days.
Never saw the original Zep....I was always in the wrong place. I have seen plenty of video and they often were a bit sloppy.
I saw Plant and Page in Chicago in 98..

1998-Page/Plant close out their first leg of the US tour with a second show at the Chicago United Center. Dennis Rodman makes an appearance during the encore.

The Faces were good but they were also a little sloppy like the Stones were at times.
My favorite hard rock show was The Who in 1974 Bloomington. IN
Jethro Tull were also very good around the same time.
I saw James Gang with Walsh in 72 at IU....great show also.

You lucky ............ whatever. One band I always tried to see but it never worked out for was the who. But you're right about Tull. They were very good. The Stones could get sloppy, but usually they added to their sound anyway. Much like Free did.

Two more groups that were unbelievably good back then was Queen. And Elf before they became Rainbow. They were great as Rainbow too, but were only that for a short time. Blackmore has always had that ego problem you know. If you weren't an absolutely great musician, you wouldn't be around him for long. Definitely famous for being a jerk, even though he is a guitar virtuoso.

Yes, it was tough for bands to reproduce their sounds perfectly in the days of analog. But a great band could add much to their music in a live show. Purple was great at that. That's what having Jon Lord and his evil organ did for them. And Heep could come in right behind them, because their organ player wasn't all that far behind Lord in many ways. A great, non-synthesized, keyboard player is always able to make a band stand out. Play the synthesizer later for itself, in its own right. There doesn't seem to be much in the way of classicly trained keyboard players showing up in Rock and Roll today. That's too bad, but I do understand. I tried to master the keyboards years ago. Very hard to do, takes many years. But the ones who do it always make the sound of their band. Guitars are great, but what can I say?

I will take that back for one guitar player though. John McLaughlin of the Mahavishnu Orchestra. The guy was great. Familiar?

The RIAA has pretty much axed R&R these days. Only the elder statesmen greats seem to be able to come up with great shows. Most of the best new acts I've heard in recent years are playing the Blues. But hey, the Blues are 99% R&R aren't they? It is good that most of the old Prog and Hard Rock people are still making music, but I've noticed they stick to Europe for the most part. I'd love to make the new Grand Casino in Montreaux these days. I hear the acoustics don't sound as good as they did before the show that the song was written about, but Freddy and others did donate enough to make for a great sounding concert hall I hear. Maybe someday we could all make a one of those shows they put on there eh? Would be great. Festivals don't happen in the states anymore. Major bummage.

Yes. I just logged in to tell you I got them today. Thanks. Nice job on them too. IABD is such an ancient release they're even hard to spot on Amazon. Developed taste for sure, but they definitely fit really nice into a mellower mix. I got pretty good at mixing sounds together years back when I purchased my first Teac reel to reel. If I had used my head I would have kept one of those. I did keep my old MacIntosh Labs quadrophonic amplifier, but haven't lived in a place where I could use it for years. Where we live now, I would blast the windows out on one. What's the point of making a 4 channel, 1000 watt per channel RMS amp anyway? I had to go into major debt to buy speakers for it. 4 speakers, each one the size of a refrigerator. Yeesh!

I'll get a couple of good blanks right back to you. I definitely appreciate. So much of the best music is ancient it seems. I would think I'm just getting old myself, but all of the kids around here are always hitting me up for copies ............ there's good new talent out there, but they're all going for alternative methods of release. The RIAA has screwed everything so bad I'm wondering what the music scene will look like in a few years.

Actually, I thought that video was cool. Hated the song though.

Alanis sings her heart out. Unfortunately not to the quality of Janis or somebody like that. But she definitely earns her points for effort. I think where she got herself in trouble was during that political phase. It's not the sixties anymore, and a generation just hasn't been able to develop a consensus since those days. After issues like Sinead Occonor or the Dixie Chicks ran into? It's probably wisest for performers to keep quiet about their opinions these days.

They're entitled to have them. But it seems like their pocketbooks suffer if they vocalize. With what the RIAA has done to them in recent years, they can ill afford that.

And in my humble opinion, the RIAA has almost killed rock and roll in America. But wasn't that their all time record Golden Goose? Idiocy knows no bounds. grin grin

Not surprised.....just curious which pop. I have all of those Brit groups also but I have unloaded most of my vinyl years ago and replaced it on cd. I only have about 400 lp's left (mostly classic rock, folk, prog ) and own about 500 cd's. I have winnowed it down over the last few years and now I collect mostly prog, my passion, both known and obscure bands from 1969-present.

Music blends with the contour`s of the mind, it`s a simple statement of mine but one which is true. My real speciality is hard rock and metal etc but mostly the classic bands and a couple of newer one`s but these days the quality isn`t there.
Well talent does show up but scarcer than the real glory days of music etc. Music keeps me sane and without it I would I would crack up no doubt about it, recently opera has been on the hit list.
I never got before but a few years back I can feel it, the real problem today is it`s very difficult to be original basically it`s all been done in music.

I disagree on this song anyway, okay it is in a vein of that Baez mould and a very retrospective 60s 70s feel and depth.
Thanks for the link I actually enjoyed the video and it`s the first time I have seen her on celluloid...I`m gong to have to checkout her other material. A gripe...yes she looks a looker, but why or why to these people insist on artificial cosmetic b******t.
It`s all false pretence and to have that done even if I had the money is a complete no go area for me.

It doesen`t get much better than this, a first generation HR/HM band, Leslie West is one heavy dirty blues guitarist with a gravel voicebox to go with it.
A real powerhouse virtuoso player, I have almost all the albums and his solo stuff...to die for! The classic line up of West/Pappalardi/Laing/Knight is the stuff of legends and their finest moment Nantucket Sleighride is a masterpiece of the highest order.

Yes...it`s the actual title track Nantucket Sleighride as well as this album along with many but this track put them in the league with Zeppelin, Purple, Rainbow 75-78 etc.
Still underrated in my opinion and you were lucky to have caught Mountain live at that time, sadly I was born ten years late and missed the explosion that defined this era.
I caught the off-shoots in the late 70s and after, those classic HR/HM bands will never be beat, there have been a few great bands since but don`t quite compare with the earlier bands. PowerKnight wink

It`s really nice to know there are so many here that love their music no matter what genre, it never lets you down it`s always there to banish the blues...sorry for the pun!
Me think Mountain created more than two decent studio albums that`s my take on it. Trapeze yes Glenn Hughes before Purple and for whatever reason I don`t know that much about them...what a sin!!! Hard rock/metal forever...a former headbanger, in fact it`s a wonder I still have a head left to balance on my body not forgetting the decibel level on my eardrums and the shaking of my brain cells.
Still it was all crazy fun and I enjoyed every minute of it, today it`s a little different but I really like the idea of the mosh pit.

The best or finest guitar players...I would say generally speaking Jimi Hendrix was clearly way ahead of his time. And you could argue he achieved everything in his very short time of being around. Had he lived longer I`m sure his maturity would have developed and he would have been able to refine his unique style and sound into something else. Sadly it wasn`t to be, I would say the likes of Blackmore/Page were again the finest in their field.
A few other brilliant guitar players I personally go for are the likes of Leslie West/Uli Jon Roth/Michael Schenker/Yngwie J Malmsteen but Blackmore has always been my guitar player.
This of course is without the other genre`s of music in which there are many great players in different styles of music. But many HM guitar players are a lot more versatile than people realise and can play different forms incorporated in hard rock/metal music, PowerKnight wink

IMO the best in rock from the old days are the following: no particular order since they are all great:
Hendrix
Clapton
Beck
Page
Allman
Santana
...of course there are many others and new guys like Bonamossa.

One of my favorite Beck guitar parts. IMO he's better with the jazz-fusion approach incorporated into rock songs and his technique and precision are usually better than Page or Clapton or Hendrix who were sometimes a bit sloppy but heh they are all great.

Satriani is a very good player along with the likes of Vai however they actually came from the school of the Van Halen type protege`s and although they are excellent it was Eddie who invented this particular type style guitar and in my opinion was the better, created in the middle to late 70s.
Good list there drwu23, at the end of the day there will always be argument to who was the best but each have their merit, personally I don`t think the current crop of younger guitar slingers are as good as the early legends but some have the quality.
What I find ironic is because Blackmore never played in the Yardbirds ie, Beck/Clapton/Page etc and don`t me wrong they are great players no doubt about it. Blackmore is the black sheep pardon the pun, the press hate him he is very obnoxious and arrogant and basically due to his personality he has never exactly done himself any favours!
He has to be the one of if not the most self destructive guitarists there has ever been and he never did drugs or booze!!!
Destroyed Purple at their peak and destroyed Rainbow at their peak and there was much more to come from the two super bands. The daft commercial dross he spewed out after 1980 was a travesty and I have never forgiven him to this very day, that said he now has his Blackmore`s Night project which has been around for about ten years.

I like Blackmore and of course own the Deep Purple lp/cd's..never really got into Rainbow. I'll ck them out again.
I also picked up a couple of the Night Project cd's when they came out because I like folk with an edge.
While I think he's very good I just don't think he has that intangible something that Clapton, Beck, and Page have.

Saw these guys in '74 and listened to them a lot in college. Best fusion band ever imho. Some think he is one of the greatest if not the single greatest technician/ guitar player. I don' t t hink anyone plays any faster and cleaner....but fusion is not everyone's cup of tea.

Saw these guys in '74 and listened to them a lot in college. Best fusion band ever imho. Some think he is one of the greatest if not the single greatest technician/ guitar player. I don' t t hink anyone plays any faster and cleaner....but fusion is not everyone's cup of tea.

Never been a real big fusion fan a little dabble here and there is fine but not on this scale for me. Intangible...seriously he can play the most complex and intricate guitar structure`s along with his rhythm and his solos can be the most simple at times using single notes that last forever.
Many called it perverse virtuosity, live he never ever played the same track the same during live shows, his improvisations took on the mood he was in night after night.
An innovator like many of his generation, look what happened when he left Purple in 75...the band died. Re-formed again in 84 left again band get another player in...another demise. No Blackmore no Purple thee core essence of the band, Rainbow...only get the 75-78 period...the Ronnie James DIO years and considered their golden period.
Checkout Rising from 76...oh and try Stargazer from the album...the benchmark of hard rock/metal, something Zeppelin never produced along with the album.
Blackmore`s Night for whatever reason have never actually hit their full potential and it looks like they never will, some stunning music but much mediocre and weak material and often inconsistent. Finally try this one...Weiss Heim an instrumental from 1980, a Rainbow track used as a B-side but it`s the most sublime guitar instrumental you will ever hear in your entire life!!!
This could have been a fluke hit had their record company and management had their brains sorted, a golden chance squandered, try youtube it`s gotta be there...haunting but beautiful, PowerKnight

Hi Moksha now I checked the link, briefly guys Michael Schenker was the first original lead guitarist in the Scorpions. He appeared on the debut Scorpions album Lonesome Crow back in 72 ish!!!
He then quickly jumped ship in the same year to join UK band UFO, the Scorpions quickly established Ulrich Roth as their lead guitarist now called Uli Jon Roth.
He stayed with them from 72 right up to 78 he then left to pursue a solo career, Michael Schenker briefly rejoined in 79 as a guest player on their Lovedrive album and a couple of brief guest spots on the tour from 79-80.
He quit to form his own band, the Scorpions fell foul from 1980 onwards and developed this American sounding style which became very popular among HR/HM bands of that time. Schenker is a guitar god figure and his creative force in UFO was apparent once he left in 78 the band suffered and never fully recovered, did you know his brother was the rhythm guitar player Rudolph Schenker in the Scorpions.
That said the Scorpions still had an appeal and have lasted the test of time, I still like them and hit it big with the sensational Wind Of Change classic track issued as a single some years ago.
Scorpions as well as UFO are real classic HR/HM outfits both great bands and have produced brilliant music between them both over the years, PowerKnight wink

Neat list there buddy, phew a personal fave and best list from myself would probably include a couple of bands or artists most might not ever have heard of.
There again I have a couple of certs that are a little more heard of, anyway out of everything music-
Rainbow/Rising...it really doesen`t get any better than this masterpiece, it`s not just all in here including the kitchen sink, it`s the battle of the Gods stuff.
And Rainbow from that time came out the winners...a neo-classical fusion of hard rock/metal combined with a fantasy line up that was a reality. The classic MK II line up of Blackmore/Dio/Powell/Bain/Carey along with the staggering Stargazer is yet to be equalled or bettered.
The whole package including the artwork inner sleeve concept and idea they even threw in a full orchestra to back up Stargazer.
But live on their Rising tour of late 75-76 it took on another dimension of sight and sound...the ultimate benchmark etched in stone forever.
I see a Rainbow Rising...look there on the horizon, thank you Ronnie for defying the laws of the vocal cords, sadly missed, PowerKnight wink

Mehhhh, what kind/genre of guitarists? Country, Blues, Jazz, and Rock are all down with complimenting each other, but many in the Flamingo/Classical crowd believe that only theirs don't stink if you know what I mean?

Doesn't matter though. Any list demoting Blackmore to number 50 ............... so where's Billy Gibbons? 47?

Some of these new guys do have some talent, but there are qualifiers. Digital, do it for you amps, screw controlling your own feedback. And very few have true formal training, and that really shows. While their music often sounds good, it doesn't hold together. Arrangement and timing are everything to any of Rock's heavier genres. Four to six people does not an orchestra make, but the great ones pulled it off. Of course many of the old timers had keyboard players, and this is where lack of formal training really hurts. I learned to play piano and organ some. Trust me, guitars are much, much easier.

Especially when you're packing that C3 Hammond into the local bar. grin

Blackmore's problem was that he was always having to second fiddle Jon Lord's organ. And, as we all know, Blackmore is a very competitive individual.

I can't quite make out that album cover guy, but it looks like you're apeing John McLaughlin there? If so, I concur. Among living guitar players, he would have to be one of the best. I've never really gone for any of that THE BEST stuff where guitarists are concerned. Too many intangibles with that instrument. Nobody but Hendrix taught Jimi to play, but he changed the way everybody plays the guitar ever since. That's one example of extreme intangibles. But I could name a thousand more.

Very true. Ritchie is known as a first class jerk with an ego the size of Everest. He does possess far more talent than he's ever displayed though. The man is downright anal about bringing every note down hard and flat before bending it. If he'd ever lightened up, something he's probably incapable of, he could have been more impressive yet.

And still wouldn't have been able to hold place with Lord. grin

They toured a lot way back when, and I went to any concert available within 400 miles in those days, so I caught those guys a lot. The competition between the two was obvious, intense, but did give the band one heck of a one two punch.

I even got to see the idiot's pyrotechnic display at the California Jam. Pretty cool actually, hard to say why ABC got so upset. Probably dealing with Blackmore one too many times I guess.

By the way, I only heard some of that Blackmore's Night stuff about a year ago. WTF is up with that? A major Valium overdose?

I really miss the type of concerts we had over here back in the 1960s and 1970s. Often just a major party outdoors for a couple of days. At Bull's Island, the crowd was 350,000 strong. When it was almost over, my ride found me to tell me he'd sold his car so he could get a bunch of "really good acid" he'd found. Gee, home was 1200 miles away. I just said "Donny, you'd best have saved me a bunch, because you know how much I hate to hitch hike." He hadn't natch. I was so messed up already I probably would've landed in the OD tent anyway.

This chick with an old Ford van offered me a ride home, so all ended well. Except, she took me to her home. In Philadelphia. I lived in Virginia. Hitching rides down the Eastern Seaboard was genuinely nerve wracking in those days. I can't even begin to count the number of festivals that wound up that crazy, and worse. Yeah, they were always a really great time.

This has been overtaken with The Who who I think still hold the record back in 76ish.

Re: What music are you listening to now?
Post by icepick on Dec 11th, 2011, 6:36pm

Yeah, Panterra is missing. There's some real talent in that genre, but I've always felt that those bands suffer from a lack of formal training. As a result their music doesn't hold together like it should. Otherwise it's good though. Formal training has taken a hike pretty much these days it seems.

You're right about Purple and Zep. They were part of the old Blues and Classical Rock genre. Not much left of the Blues Rock sound, and almost nobody experiments in Classical like that today. I'm not sure where ACDC fits in the scheme of things. Never got into them.

Hasn't the industry grouped all of those genres into Progressive Rock now? Seems like they turned that one into a catch-all category.

Who does vocals for Sabbath now? Ozzy was never a great singer, but it's strange how bands don't sound right after a change of singers. Look at the hit Heep took after Byron. Of course that was a major downgrade in my opinion. But Sabbath never sounded right, even when Gillain was with them, and he has a killer set of pipes. Kind of like Hagar replacing Roth. Certain styles fit certain bands better? Rock is funny that way. Vocals don't interchange well.
Re: What music are you listening to now?
Post by PowerKnight on Dec 12th, 2011, 1:19pm

The only band from that list drwu23 I like are Iron Maiden and so I can`t really help you on that one. Hard rock/metal like all genre`s of music has suffered over the years...why...simple it`s all been done before. It`s now very very difficult to try and be original and different and prove something yet remain special.
There are a few more recent artist`s and bands I like in the HR/HM genre, which is my favourite form of music along with mostly progressive rock from the 70s, but compared to the past it`s quite limited. The thing is ice what tends to happen when a singer departs from an original line up and tends to be the frontman/singer and talisman of the band it often leads to a downward spiral.
Very rare does it work when a replacement of sorts comes into the fold, I mean Sabbath had about six singers after Osbourne left, it got ridiculous to be honest and that was a change in other personnel as well.
Never hit on death metal it`s all been done before, Black Sabbath the original death/doom metal band of them all. A recommendation...try this Iced Earth/The Glorious Burden including The Gettysburg Trilogy...progressive speed metal at it`s best...a modern metal masterpiece. Long Live Rock n Roll...Long Live Ronnie James DIO, PowerKnight wink
Re: What music are you listening to now?
Post by icepick on Dec 13th, 2011, 04:59am

Dio was great, all the way back to the Elf days.

That's part of it PK, but not all. A lot might have to do with the innovative nature of vocals in rock. Many vocalists would be impossible to copy/replace. And of course some you wouldn't want to copy. But in the case of Van Halen, their music actually improved with Hagar, he was a better front man as well, but it just wasn't the same. Maybe we just get conditioned to the sound?

Hard to say. In rock this even extends to instruments. Nobody could ever duplicate the depth of sound Hendrix could milk from a guitar, but Stevie Ray Vaughn could do a fair job. In rare cases some people make never having a lesson pay. But not often. The guy Wu was talking about, John McLaughlin would be really tough as well. Some people excel at live performance, there has been quite a few of these over the years, and nobody should really try and replace them in my opinion. The band should try anew.

I agree about many of the best licks already having been done. Often in several ways. But I'm open to new music that's good. I do see a huge problem with many of these people lacking formal training though. There is a lot of talent out there, but arrangements often are found wanting.

Yeah, long live rock and roll, but death to top 40s radio. I've had my fill of that. The best will survive, the pulp can go away for all I care. BTW, you're getting a better selection over there right now. Have to hunt for it here. The RIAA bit is more subtle, but still active. Smart musicians avoid them.

Van Halen without Roth was the end of the band ice, sure they continued with success but the seeds had been planted without Hagar. Diamond Dave was the dogs bollocks not just a brilliant frontman but a brilliant singer which has been overlooked due to his wildman image and persona.
It never sounded the same without him, they actually have reformed original line up bar Michael Anthony/Bass, his son Wolfgang took over the bass slot! Hagar wasn`t a bad replacement but more a musician than a frontman singer.
Van Halen`s best work was all the Dave Lee Roth albums up to 1984 and the final album. Ronnie James DIO...yes the Elf years and his early years before Elf was class, he is my all time hero and legend, I met him twice not that long before he sadly passed away. Untouchable, I am yet to hear anyone who could match him in the vocal stakes, live he probably did it better than stuDio, the acid test. Every genre of music leaves their marker, Ronnie James DIO was the marker and benchmark not just in the HR/HM genre but he could cut it with anyone.
Just checkout his ballads he sung, because he wasn`t a mainstream artist most have never heard of him, there was no one like him and I really doubt he will ever be beaten, RIP the legend of Ronnie James DIO, fond memories PowerKnight cry

All true. I wonder if Jimi ever realized he was changing the way artists in every branch of music would use the fretboard forever? Just one man. And not one person taught him squat about playing the guitar when he first started. A true natural.

Great track and yes Jimi Hendrix was pure raw talent he didn`t need to refine what he was doing it just poured out of his soul.
His greatest solo among many...All Along The Watch Tower...if that solo doesen`t stop you dead in your tracks then I don`t know what will. Every time I hear it even now it`s spellbinding...floating notes done with little ease and I haven`t heard anyone do that since. Can you imagine had he lived longer how he could have refined his style into another dimension of playing. PowerKnight wink

He actually got close as it was. Arranging so many tunes in a series of repeating ripped licks like that. People got the hang of that, as well as his method of using power chords. But who has ever mastered the use of constant feedback on the other strings for background fill? Vaughn came close, as did Trower. But they were trying to, and as a result, it showed. They still made great music though. But the depth of Jimi's raw talent will be hard to match.

Despite resistance from stuffed shirt types because of his drug use, Seattle still erected a memorial for him, leaving little doubt as to who is considered the city's favorite son. That was quite the accomplishment back then. The man was black, and ate enough acid to give an entire army hallucinations. It's a real tribute to his talent for him to overcome all those biases in those days.

Ticks me off that he died before I could catch a concert.

To be honest if it wasn`t for his love of acid etc he wouldn`t have created many incredible moments, the solo I mentioned sounds and feels like dreamy floating note`s just pouring out of his axe. Took on all the white players and beat them hands down, incredible beyond talent, PowerKnight wink

You ignored Little Wing, Voodoo Child, much of the Axis Bold as Love album, and many more. All great tunes. You're talking taste, nothing more.

Have you heard much of the music his label would not release? The man had tons of great blues music which was only released after his death. Because his label did not want to let the golden goose die.

Simply because you dislike something does not make it bad. In the flavor of the tunes you listed, you're saying you don't like Gypsy Eyes for example?

Icepick,

No, didn't ignore them. They were just a couple of examples of his early stuff that I liked.

I think people would agree that most of the Electric Ladyland album was just electric noise from an overdriven amplifier. Nothing to like in it. The guy was so far away in his head by then he was playing for himself.

I do (did, this is years ago) like progressive stuff. Pheadra by Tangerine Dream for example. King Crimson's Lark Toungues in Aspic etc.

Just a personnal choice.

Point taken. But it's obvious you have yet to here much of his blues. That's where his best music was. Electric Ladyland wasn't noise though. I like nearly all his stuff. The one thing I had issues with was the Star Spangled Banner, but it was in set keys, believe it or not. If one realizes why he did it at Woodstock, to address the fact the country was divided, it actually becomes commendable. He wasn't a political animal, but he was a humanist who believed there were bad things ahead if we didn't come together.

Find some of his blues albums. They will change your mind about him. He was pure, raw, unbridled talent. If he had lived, he would have been a highly talented John Lee Hooker type with a four on the floor beat. The Blues Rock Movement found its start in Jimi.

I do think Hendrix suffered towards the end of his life in his music, the drugs were causing more problems and things started to decline in his music and where he was at that point in time.
But I`m sure there could have been along with this a transitional period for Jimi, with that talent and imagination there was more to come another angle we never heard, PowerKnight wink
Re: What music are you listening to now?
Post by icepick on Dec 23rd, 2011, 4:36pm

Zetar, if you say so. But I know of several pics where it really was an upside down Telecaster. He made some comment on Johny Carson about it being his first guitar, and really liked them. This really isn't something to argue anyway. The guitars those folks play are in no way what the general public receives when they buy one. Ever see a Les Paul SG? Yes, there really was such a critter. Strange as it may sound.

I played a version of a C3 Hammond which would never have existed had Jon Lord not requested that modification. No Leslies, just a cord to an amp, ditching that roller rink sound for evil mode.

That organ isn't the only reason I bring this up though. My aching back makes me wonder why I just had to have a tone wheel organ anyway. Actually, I wish I still had it. No, two guitars are involved. One was a Strat allegedly played by Blackmore that was on display. If that was a Strat, I'll eat (and digest) it. It looked like one. Until you got close. And you know it sounded much different.

The other was made by a friend of mine from scratch. No kit. He's a master carpenter by trade, but far more capable than that. He walked me all over the Olympic National Forest, until he found the two trees he wanted. A Yew, with 32 grains to the inch, and a Fiddler Maple with 19. He ordered the electronics for it, then assembled an electric 12 string that sounds as good as any axe I ever heard, but the body looks like an Octopus. I tried to convince him to market it, but no dice. It was a gift for a friend.

On the subject of Jimi, did you know that Eric Clapton actually found a left handed Telecaster for him? The story says he was planning on giving it to him in the very tour he died on.

Hendrix played mostly strats...but had many kinds.


http://www.articlesbase.com/music-articles/the-guitars-of-jimi-hendrix-519790.html

1964, Jimi would play rhythm guitar for the Isley Brothers. During this nine month gig, he finally got his first Fender guitar, a blond'59 Duo-Sonic. He next played with Little Richard in '65, and briefly played a Fender Jazzmaster. However, he switched back to a Dou-Sonic when he played with Curtis Knight and the Squires. Even though Jimi later returned to the Jazzmaster.
Jimi purchased his first Strat from Manny's Music in New York in '66 in the summer. Early on he would use a variety of CBS Strats with rosewood fretboards. While he was staying in Greenwich Village in late '66 and '67 he narrowed down his choices to a '60's era Reverse Fender Stratocasterblack or white Fender Strats using maple fretboards. Which, most likely is the reason the Fender Stratocaster is the most important guitar in the history of guitars and music.

Bowie was always an exceptional talent, but he never seemed to work very hard at it. I actually liked a lot of the Glass Spider stuff too. He remains one of the few rock stars who displayed a real talent for acting. Considering the many lousy actors from music, it's surprising he never pursued it. Look at Elvis. One of the few deep toned singers who was truly gifted at singing. But one of the worst actors ever.

Of course it could be worse. Jim Dandy might have discovered acting. grin

Wu, you're correct about Hendrix playing many different rigs. After all, he burned about one per concert.

I'm remembering the one he was initially famous for. That short Fender strung upside down was a Telly. But it's a little strange isn't it? Fender makes left handed versions, and he definitely had the money to buy one. I wonder why he never purchased one?

Maybe he became so used to playing it upsdie down he simply couldn't be bothered to look for a left handed one.
Most of his songs and gigs were Strats from what I recall on album covers and pics and live video...but he did occasionally play something else in the early days.

Glenn Hughes was often over the top in Purple as some would say, and even a few Purple die-hards still didn`t like his inclusion in the band along with Coverdale.
Okay it was never the same without Gillan/Glover the classic MK II line up but that said they both were brilliant musicians and Coverdale is a better singer than Rodgers of Free/Bad Company!
Trouble was on the Stormbringer 74 album the band started to become a little stale sounding and the funk themed idea more so from Hughes wasn`t what the band were really about.
It was enough to push Blackmore out of the band and in 75 he had enough, checkout something like Holy Man on Stormbringer a Hughes only sung track and it`s friggin brill. Funky but with an edge and Blackmore`s single note use on this track was spellbinding.
Lovely song and still reminds me of the times I would listen to it in my bedroom all those years ago when I was single. Coverdale`s talent as a blues singer at his best is also on this album, Soldier Of Fortune, a masterclass on how to sing blues rock, sheer class, PowerKnight wink

After Tanx, the tax exile Bolan, Gloria Jones relationship, Bolan`s booze and drug sombre became his downfall.
Not forgetting his ego...believe it or not he did continue to produce great music and a reborn Bolan 76-77 appeared much fresher and he got his life back on track.
But bringing in Gloria Jones into the T.Rex sound and style was a big mistake, a great soul singer songwriter iin her own right but she swallowed up the whole T.Rex sound.
It was far to heavy and not quite in context, if I had to sum up Bolan in two words...COSMIC STARDUST...Bolan was something else his whole persona.
A unique nasal voice an excellent singer/songwriter/poet but he had imagination and he knew how to use it...there will never be another like him. A real genuine musical icon, PowerKnight wink

With all due respects, the T. Rex sound was too subtle to mix with much of anything. It's not like the guitar of Jimi Hendrix, the organ of Jon Lord, the voice of Elvis, or any other distinct sound produced by one of the musical geniuses we were blessed with during that period. It will fade into the background very quickly.

I remember how I once thought that the guitar of Rory Gallagher was sooo powerful. I was amazed at how easily it faded into a group of other musicians while performing with them.

No one has ever compared Bolan to Hendrix ice, Bolan had more talent than Elvis ever had.
Elvis never wrote his own music, yes he was a born entertainer and superb at what he done, Bolan is recognised and hasn`t been forgotten for his incredible talents and influence he has left behind in his legacy.
Like or not Bolan`s bubblegum pop/c**k rock stance purely as a pop artist alone created many superb simple but effective brilliant pop/rock tunes.
Hendrix couldn`t sing to save his life...Bolan has one of the most original vocal chords known to mankind...evocative very sensual he didn`t have to reach octave status just a unique sounding nasal voice.
Okay he is never put on the pedestal with the musos you mentioned but he was master at what he did.
Forget the pop tracks you have heard checkout his albums and the actual songs but delivered by a genius,
He was 100% what a real pop star should be, it`s a shame I can`t link a youtube footage.
But even something like his guest/duet apperance on the Cilla Black Show singing Life`s A Gas it`s on youtube...it`s so beautiful it`s scary...this is the goosebumps factor, an extraordinary performance from a real unique artist, PowerKnight wink

Who said anything negative PK? Only that his sound was so subtle that it is easily absorbed. BTW, I listened to his music myself.

Elvis? Only referring to the voice guy. Do you know how rare it is for one to have a voice that low which is still that rich? I think you misunderstood me. I was talking about how some artists develop a sound so distinct that you recognize them from the first note, but some don't. That's all. It was you who initially pointed out how his sound got absorbed by another. I was only pointing out how that is not unusual, that the artists who can't be absorbed are rare indeed.

Think like this:

The second you hear Ian Anderson on the flute ...... without even a full note.

Or a lick Hendrix hits on a guitar? Or Steve Howell/John McLaughlin/Alvin Lee for that matter.

Lord's evil mode organ?

How about Ann Wilson's vocals?

See what I'm saying? You recognize any of those people instantly. And there are many more. Ever hear Leo Kottke play guitar?

That's all I'm saying. I apologize if you think I was dissing an artist. I was not. Anybody who was ever able to write more than a single hit tune, and perform it well, deserves respect for their ability. But some, just like the guy I mentioned, Rory Gallagher, will simply blend. And you know what? There really isn't anything wrong with that, is there?

Granted the whole release wasn't quite up to their usual speed, but I really like the title tune a lot. I've always thought that Blind Faith went down in flames so that Winwood could concentrate on Traffic. grin

A facetious comment of course. Blind Faith was a victim of the members. Too much talent in one spot often results in egomania of Biblical proportions doesn't it? Like the fist fights that destroyed the studio while the Eagles were trying to record The Long Run? I say try, because they did not truly succeed in my opinion. Only went through the motions and got their butts out of there. I'd love to have been there to see that beer dumped on Glen Frey's head when he was telling all of them where and how far though .....

If the RIAA should grow a little courage and show us the graceful death we're all deserving to witness, will we see the return of music of the quality we were fortunate enough to experience back then? The talent is definitely out there. It is nothing more than the greed of this trade group which prevents it from happening in my opinion. Any artist with any brains refuses to even get close to one of their labels, let alone sign with them. The old time giants can name their terms, but I have read some real horror stories about the way they will screw new artists if they get the chance. Talk about killing the goose that laid the golden egg .......

You've probably updated your collection as it wore out? I ripped my entire music collection to a series of hard drives about eleven years ago due to this problem. It took me weeks for what was on CD. And trust me, you don't even want to know about the vinyl. grin

I forget how many drives that took. But I had a SCSI system, and was adding towers full of drives like crazy. I wouldn't dream of keeping it on the old IDE drives. Average drive size was probably 18 GB.

Today I have the entire thing on a 32GB Flash Memory MP3 player with a 64 GB add in memory card for any listening outside the home. Pretty cool. I've been listening to it for days with it set to sort by reverse alphabetical order for days now. Actually about a week I think. I wondered how long it would take to play. Definitely over two weeks. We'll see.

Next order of business? Discover a better method for finding new artists who are good. The field is thinned a bit these days. Something to do with RIAA contract policy I've heard. And even the underground FM stations have been commercialized. We have one here that the students run over at the University of Washington that's usually alright. Only problem is it's a learning tool. Which means you run the threat of being victimized by the tastes of the student DJ.

Most of my vinyl is in decent shape and the ones I like the best are on cd now.....I don't know much about how to put it on hard drives. What do you recommend?
32GB Flash Memory MP3 player with a 64 GB add in memory card for any listening outside the home...is that the way to go? I have another friend with a huge collection who has converted his to some computer file system but not MP3....not sure what he uses but it had a specific program name and is designed specifically for music uploading..He burns prog cd's for me from this system.
For prog use Prog Rock Archives online...they have all the new bands listed as soon as they come out. For pop and rock I ck out MOJO magazine and even Rolling Stone to keep up on new bands. There are other web sites that keep track of new bands also like Pandora .
Re: What music are you listening to now?
Post by icepick on Feb 6th, 2012, 02:00am

For compression I like to use FLAC if I have the room to do so. The biggest benefit is that it's lossless, meaning that none of the sound is dropped. And it works.

But like everything else which sounds too good to be true, it does have several drawbacks. Top of the list is that you must make certain it's compatible with what you're going to use it with. This is pretty standard for Open Source software as Microsoft literally hates this concept. It will work great in Windows, but be sure you read info at the download site and download the right file(s). Sometimes a second download is required. Microsoft not only left everything out necessary to support this program, they even tried to block it until they discovered that would disable Media Player as well. Their beef? This application requires no DRM, will install no DRM components, and also happens to be useful when removing the DRM tags.

Got that? Unless you run an old copy of Windows this will never be a problem. But it's always good to warn people. Right? MS is working on image now though. Rotsa Ruck.

While it will compress, don't expect it to reduce size by more than two thirds max, depending on music type. Where the stuff we listen to is concerned, that can often be limited to half. But it is the best lossless format out there. BTW, I would avoid the Apple, Sony, and Microsoft formats completely. They're too DRM happy, and their products often suffer because of this in my opinion.

Are you up on the lossless/lossy bit? Most of the formats out there are lossy. What this means is that the conversion application will remove unnecessary sounds in order to get the size down. Who decides what sounds are important? The program naturally. Some do okay, others do not. They claim you can't tell the difference, but we both know this is bogus. Correct? Microsoft claims one of their WMA formats is lossless, but if that's true, the point is moot. It sounds like crap to my ears and I'm half deaf. But so do the formats put out by other DRM supporting/loving companies IMO. I suspect this has something to do with their copy protection scheme.

And you can always get carried away with any of the lossy formats where compression is concerned. I have found that MP3 is still the best all around in the lossy department. Just don't set your compression below the 320 (maximum size) setting. The 64 bit rate, or highest compression level, sucks Eboli Goats.

FLAC compatible hardware:

I like this brand best for sound quality:

http://www.cowonglobal.com/

They are somewhat more expensive than most brands, but they can drive a full sized set of headphones to the limit. They aren't always available with expansion (card) slots either. But most brands aren't.

I can't find my Sandisk model right now, but here's one that you might like:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16855125168

It only has 4 GB onboard, but it also has an expansion slot. A 64 GB card, should you choose one that large, is around $75. You can get cards from half a meg all the way to 64 GB. A larger one is expected soon, meaning the price on the rest should drop.

Size: tunes are usually around 50 MB in size. Audio takes a lot of room, and the type of music we listen to takes the most usually. Surprised? A 320 bit rate compressed copy of Shine on You Crazy Diamond by Pink Floyd takes about 30 MB. MP4 will drastically cut that size, but I doubt your ears would like it. (sales people hate dealing with audiophiles where these players are concerned). Stairway to Heaven at the lowest acceptable setting, a 192 bit rate, is about 11 MB.

Expect anywhere from 75 to 125 songs for every gigabyte when you stick to the highest quality sound settings. This is a considerable improvement from stock though. A CD has 650 to 700 MB depending on type. So in full blown mode, storage sucks. If you worry about the quality too much, buy local and verify the unit's sound before purchasing. If they refuse, tell the to ..... well, this is a family site. But the sound on some brands sucks. The units I mentioned are good ones. Ignore internet rating systems BTW. One customer with little knowledge and few skills always skews those things.

I use the pro version of CDDA Extractor for ripping, converting, burning, well ....... everything. It does all of them, and it does everything well. If you want free, you can browse the Open Source sites. But this app is only $30, and trying out software can be a pain.

What not to buy? Ipods are a nice player in ways, but try getting your music back off one if necessary. If you aren't computer savvy, this is usually a one way trip. Their application required to get music on it puts a lot of stuff on your computer which isn't necessary, they're spendy, and all of their cords are proprietary, as well as costing twice what cords adhering to ANSI specs do. Apple likes to claim they are superior, but this is the company that charges $125 for a floppy drive ($15 for a standard model), an obsolete piece of hardware. In other words, more crap. True they are compatible with everything, but only because they were first. You can hook an MP3 player of any type to any car stereo with an auxiliary input.

MS Zune, or any MS application in this area is going to be so DRM happy ........... well, you probably shouldn't ask me about Microsoft products. As far as I'm concerned, this company is too proprietary for words. Their OS is nice and flashy, but it's really second rate to one you can download legally off the internet for free. Like Ubuntu Linux for example. Does the same things, is free, and works better. Catch my drift?

One last thing. Don't buy a player with a hard drive. They use more battery power, and can skip. Flash memory players have no moving parts. You can go dirt bike riding and you music won't skip.

That should cover it. Any further questions, feel free to ask. If you choose to buy either of the players I mentioned, I recommend you do so online. You'll save. If Newegg doesn't have it Amazon should. If not, Google can find where.

I had to check out Pandora before commenting. It seems to be cool, but I've also read it's kind of pricey. How does this work? As I said, I'm looking for alternative means of finding new music that's good. I've found this to be tough these days, as most artists who are good are also intelligent enough to avoid RIAA labels. That means little or no airtime on many, many mainstream stations. I always thought what's implied here were illegal practices?

I imagine this is part of why you browse music publications? Or is it just the apps? If it's the latter, the program I mentioned does it all, and it does it well. Pretty good for $33 IMO.

But it won't find the music for you. embarassed

Wu, it sounds like the Cowan is the only brand of MP3 player you might like after reading that last post. They are at least a solid cut above the rest in the sound department. And in your case? Only use FLAC for compression.

That crack about sound quality was the only tip I needed. Enough to cause me to make this clear right away. Cowan players have enough power to drive your Sure headphones to their proper level/potential without distortion. This brand will blow out Sony full sized phones BTW. And you will lose none of the sound using FLAC. You sound as picky as I do, but I suspected as much.

One more thing. I didn't explain how I did the vinyl in my post because I've heard there may be new technologies available for this. When I validate/invalidate this I will let you know.

Re: What music are you listening to now?
Post by PowerKnight on Feb 8th, 2012, 1:43pm

Packaging was always part and parcel of the musical product in the past, the vinyl LP format showcased this which is an artform. The standard cassette tape...bless them still had a form of packaging, it worked and looking back at them portable and you could say ahead of their time. Okay the tape itself was often a problem but it served it`s purpose, they tried everything but nothing actually did replace it!
Even the humble vinyl 45s often had pic sleeves etc pressed in coloured and various pic discs etc, the CD still offers some very interesting additional extras such as pics with a little expanded information.
I`m strictly old school on this one and bloody proud of it guys and that`s it, the humble second hand record stores have all sadly passed away in my area.
Even the big music stores are shutting down here such as HMV, the net is also responsible for killing off the musical store and it`s product, do I often wish I was back in the 70s raiding the vinyl stores...now that was a buzz!!! PowerKnight wink
Re: What music are you listening to now?
Post by icepick on Feb 8th, 2012, 3:56pm

There's just one thing about those sleeves in LPs PK. Are you aware that is what caused a lot of that scratching which took place on later LPs? The early ones were actually hard to hurt, but like everything else, they got thin and cheap.

One thing you could do with the early ones if they did get scratched beyond repair? Deadly weapon when used like a frisbee., grin

So I take it Alligator Records isn't prevalent in the UK? Over here they have their own stores in the major cities. Mostly heavy duty blues, but I like blues.

I think FLAC might be what my friend uses to upload his cd's and lp's onto his drive. He burns them onto disc for me from this system.
So far I just have a handful (about 100) ripped via normal pc software that I then burn for people and listen to for myself.
I'll ask my son in law about headphones and ipods since he is a tech fan and works for Best Buy in their home office in Minnesota.

Yeah, bone vibration tech isn't new (remember the bone phone?), but it's rare. What can be cool about it is having your own private sound while still hearing everything else.

My favorite player for everyday use remains one I made by gutting a decent pair of Sony phones, stuffing them in shooter's headphones for a shooting range, and making a small case on the side of one of the earpieces for the player. No cords ...... very good for active outdoor use. I've come to like these players.

I guess you'd know, or will find out if FLAC is your friend's choice. In my opinion it's the best format for sound quality. No DRM stuff built in, just music. If high compression is a must, 320 bit rate MP3, but room is less of an issue all the time. I found out I have 13 days continuous on that one player.

PK, here's one way for doing it:

http://www.dak.com/reviews/2020story.cfm?Ref=G&PM=LPCD&type=GSrch&Srh=Vinyl_to_MP3&gclid=CM_qx_fMuK4CFQUZQgod_RoyLw

But a better way is to hook your turntable directly to a desktop PC. NOT A LAPTOP! Reason being you would want to install a sound card that's primarily stereo, not surround sound based. Best of the inexpensive cards for this is made by M Audio. Creative Labs stuff is terrible. You should also download a Linux distro designed for such things, and install it as the OS. It will resize your partitions so Windows will still be there. MS utilizes disk prefetch schemes to speed their systems up that can create background noise, change speeds, ...... etc. Then you just play and record. But store in FLAC, because it will compress the files, saving size, but no sound will be lost. It's really a simple procedure. And applications are available to remove those pops, clicks, and hisses.

Storing on CD though? I would buy a 1 TB+ external drive to store them on, but use a MP3 player with an expansion slot for a memory card to play with. You can get a Cowan from Amazon that will drive full size headphones to their max which sounds great. On a stereo, just buy a splitter cable from Radio Shack for older systems, or just use a mini stereo cable for newer ones. Use the auxiliary or line in port, and use it like a component.

Wu, have to wonder what worlds you and Powerknight were hanging in back then. As if I didn't know. We've rarely mentioned a band that wasn't 99% in the underground scene back then. You'd have never found them if you were an AM radio type fan.

Early Genesis, and early Queen both fit very neatly in that category. Bands like Quicksilver, Jo Jo Gunne, Traffic, or Ten Years After are still behind those doors for the most part.

Of course you have the hard rock/prog rock bands like Zep, Floyd, Purple, and Heep who are credited with making this sound popular, but none truly wrote a single tune for mainstream music either. In fact, Dark Side of the Moon was only written because Floyd's label told them they had to write something that would sell. Any song by any of them had to be edited to fit into the AM radio (45) format. Strange how 90% of the artists accepted as popular back then are forgotten now, and these people are considered the popular music from back then in today's music world, isn't it?

The exceptions to this rule would be the Stones, Hendrix, The Doors, and The Animals to name a few. It was they who brought underground music to the forefront IMO.

And here we sit, all of us spoiled by one of music's most creative eras ever, suffering from the lack of highly inspired artists out there today. But ............ considering where their inspiration came from, do we really want to see a resurgence of their level of creativity today? Jus' asking. But we do seem to forget what drove this highly talented, but also very dark music of the day, don't we?

Most of the bands you named were basically mainstream imo and most kids on campus had them. Indeed most of them had singles on both am and fm.
Quicksilver had several singles as did Traffic, Jo Jo Gunne (ex Spirit.. a better band imho..), TYA, Zep, Floyd...big mainstream record with Dark Side, Heep had several radio hits, as did Purple....none of them were particluarly underground imho...except in the very early days. Even Tull had some hit singles like Living in The Past and several from Aqualung. I still have 45's from most of the ones I named. Traffic were more underground but they also had some 45's early on.
I do agree that Genesis with Gabriel certainly didn't have much airplay except on fm...and the underground bands at that time were King Crimson, Greenslade, ELP, Yes, Procol Harum though they had a hit with Whiter Shade early on...,Van Der Graaf Generator, Argent, Humble pie, Gentle Giant, Rennaissance, and even those were not hard core underground. Bands like Gravy Train, Steamhammer, Savoy Brown, The Move, The Nice , Brian Auger, Edgar Broughton, were far more underground.

One of my favorite 'underground' bands.... cool

Post by PowerKnight on Feb 25th, 2012, 1:35pm

It`s the first time I have heard this original version why do I say that simply because metal masters Judas Priest covered this great song back in 77-78 on their Stained Class album. And it`s a great version and contrary to what people might think Priest were a red hot underground metal band just before they had their breakthrough in 78. From then on their best work was behind them they also covered Baez/Diamonds and Rust in 77 and it brilliant, I like much of what came after but their very early years were superb. PowerKnight wink

Yeah Wu, like what was played by most kids on campus was mainstream back then. Yes, just about all of them had a 45 or two, usually a year or two after they came out on albums though. I may be thinking several years earlier. And I'll STFU on that before I give up my age. wink

The days you describe sound suspiciously like after returning from the service. Still, no early Genesis nor Queen need apply. Especially the first Genesis releases. That's like Weather Report, total obscurity. But right after I got back, there was enough FM to avoid the radio trash soooo ................ then I moved out here. Right after that the FM station I posted about hit the air. Two close competitors followed soon after and I've never tuned AM since. Thank God!

I remember Spooky Tooth, early Slade, Bloodrock, bands like that. I also remember Slade coming back with the same music for MTV.

Well PK, do it right and it's still the real musical product. That's why the open source guys developed FLAC. Unlike MP3, it's lossless. And unlike the rest, no DRM. If you want to know how/where, I'll supply the links.

Pretty cool from a hard drive with the right jukebox app actually. Just include all your tunes on random play and it's like your own radio station .................... without commercials. I hook my PC direct to my stereo by the way.

Rory was a great blues guitarist who never made it big...I always thought he and Wishbone Ash sounded alike at times as far as the guitar tones and technique but the Ash also had a bit of a prog influence at times.

Post by icepick on Feb 26th, 2012, 11:03am

Yes they did. Very unique sound out of them at times. But they were mainly a bluesy lot. I'd never really thought about it, but you're right. There was a similarity.

Those bluesy guitarists with a fringe of rock sound all got stuck on that edge for some reason. Johny Winter was another, albeit somewhat better known. Some years back he was still soldiering on, but isn't he gone now too?

I also liked the way Ronnie Montrose kind of slidddd through there on his way to that fusion sound. Unusual performer, Montrose.

So I was thinking of the line...

Radio plays that forgotten song. Brenda Lee's coming on strong.

Couldn't remember the next line, so I looked it up, and here you all go. One of my favorites!

I've been drivin' all night, my hands are wet on the wheel.
There's a voice in my head that drives my heel.
My baby call said I need you here.
It's half past four and I'm shifting gears.

When she's lonely and the longing gets too much,
She sends a cable coming in from above.
Don't need no phone at all.
We got a thing that's called radar love
We got a wave in the air
Radar love

The radio's playin' some forgotten song.
Brenda Lee's coming on strong.
The road has got me hypnotized,
As I spin into a new sunrise.

When I get lonely and I'm sure I've had enough,
She sends comfort coming in from above.
Don't need no letters at all.
We got a thing that's called radar love
We got a line in the sky
Radar love

No more speed I'm almost there.
Gotta keep cool, now, gotta take care.
Last car to pass, here I go.
The line of cars drove down real slow.
The radio plays that forgotten song.
Brenda Lee's coming on strong.
The news man sang his same song,
One more radar lover gone.

When I'm feeling lonely and I'm sure I've had enough.
She sends the comfort coming in from above.
Don't need no radio at all
We got a thing that's called radar love
We got a light in the sky
We got a thing and its called radar love
We got a thing that's called
Radar love

I've debated this before, but it's my belief that this guy never makes it home, but he will always be there for his baby, in the air.

Tomorrow night (Sat) I'm scheduled to attend The Members 35th anniversary concert at the Garage in Islington, London. This will be 35 years after I went by chance to their very first gig at the Roxy in London, when my friend Chris (who shortly after joined the band on bass guitar and is still with them) asked me if I fancied going. It wasn't bad for their very first gig, even though standard procedure at concerts such as this in those days, was to throw beer over anyone else in range. It's unlikely this will happen at the 35th anniversary gig though - not at 4 quid a pint anyway! :wink:

Line-up for the gig as follows:

JC Carroll - guitar
Nigel Bennett - guitar
Nicky Tesco - vocals
Chris Payne - bass guitar
Rat Scabies - drums

Various assorted other musicians will possibly join them on stage at various times. Rat is pretty busy this week because although he's been the regular Members drummer for some time now, he is also playing a gig with his original band, The Damned, this evening. Nigel (ex Members) has flown in from the US where he's been performing with The Vibrators and Nicky (ex Members) has been persuaded to come out of retirement following his hip operation.

Here's a preview of their new album:




And here's a song from the new album, for all those like me who are nearly past it. lipsrsealed

Yes that`s a great track and the moment Ritchie went acoustic with Blackmore`s Night I felt it was the correct direction to take, die hard Purple/Rainbow fans can`t hack it but I love it.
However the whole theme hasn`t quite lived up to it`s full potential and it doesen`t look like it will 15 years on, far to much weak and mediocre material.
That said there has been stunning music including that track, okay Candice might be his wife and Ritchie became a dad again but she is the perfect foil for Blackmore`s Night.
Very animate on stage a vastly improved vocal and excellent lyrics, she looks stunning but she actually has talent, keep those home fires burning brightly Ritchie!

Does everything remind you of Blackmore...? wink

I recently decided to revisit Deep Purple (the day before I posted that link) and Rainbow because I felt I might have overlooked them over the years, so I pulled out my lp's and cd's and fired them up for 2 days. Blackmore was and still is a fine guitarist (with Blackmore's Night) but I gotta tell ya the song writing on both the Purple and Rainbow lp's just wasn't very consistent. Very good tracks with some very mediocre ones next to them.
IMHO that's the reason they didn't become quite as big as Led Zep and a few other super groups. The chops were there but the songs weren't always there.
Just saying....

Re: What music are you listening to now?
Post by icepick on Mar 9th, 2012, 1:04pm

One reason for that is their primary drive was live performances. As opposed to mix and remix in the studio like Zep did. I've always been a huge Zep fan, but after three tries was forced to admit their live performances were quite sub par.

Fortunately they remain the sole band I've always been a fan of who was like that. I mean, I've seen those Queen performances where they didn't try things like Bohemian Rhapsody, and just played it on tape during a quick break instead. But that's understandable, and far better than butchering one of your tunes.

I saw Purple quite a few times, and never saw a bad performance. On the other hand, I can say the same thing about ZZ Top. Or Savoy Brown. Or ........... well, you get the picture. BTW, I was a keyboard player in the day, so Purple doesn't necessarily mean Blackmore to me if you know what I mean? Maybe you also now know why i like bands like Traffic and Heep so much? Today we have an absolute drought on good keyboard players in my opinion. Which may only reflect on how difficult it is to master them. Who knows?

I would like to remind some people here that the Rainbow incarnation from 1980 onwards the commercial dross they spewed out and the false pop tunes of that time, was very much a seperate entity to the Rainbow I discovered in 1975.
By this time Blackmore lost the plot big time and decided to cop out on commercial dross as opposed to the artistic brilliance he attained in Purple then Rainbow.
Dio decided he couldn`t sell out as he wasn`t in this game to be a mainstream artist, he left and made the correct decision, the only Rainbow I`m interested in is their golden years 1975-1978.
From that time as mentioned this was consistancy drwu23, the Stranger In Us All album 97 with a different decent singer and line up was a return to what Rainbow really were about, sadly Blackmore got bored again and it folded, if any guy in music baffle`s me it`s Blackmore! PowerKnight wink

One reason for that is their primary drive was live performances. As opposed to mix and remix in the studio like Zep did. I've always been a huge Zep fan, but after three tries was forced to admit their live performances were quite sub par.

Fortunately they remain the sole band I've always been a fan of who was like that. I mean, I've seen those Queen performances where they didn't try things like Bohemian Rhapsody, and just played it on tape during a quick break instead. But that's understandable, and far better than butchering one of your tunes.

I saw Purple quite a few times, and never saw a bad performance. On the other hand, I can say the same thing about ZZ Top. Or Savoy Brown. Or ........... well, you get the picture. BTW, I was a keyboard player in the day, so Purple doesn't necessarily mean Blackmore to me if you know what I mean? Maybe you also now know why i like bands like Traffic and Heep so much? Today we have an absolute drought on good keyboard players in my opinion. Which may only reflect on how difficult it is to master them. Who knows?


I saw Purple open for The Faces in Chicago once....they were better than the Faces but then the Faces were always a sloppy band.
Overall I actually like some of the Heep lp's better than the purple lp's...there's more variety and it's proggier at times which is what i like.

Yeah, I kinda suspected it was a matter of taste Wu. grin

I like Heep too, but Lord is a far better keyboard player. Trust me on this. His stuff was always tough to get the sound right on, even after buying a Hammond with a tone wheel.

Not to say Hensley was bad by any means. To be honest, I like most rock with a really good organ player. They add such depth to the music. Even Winwood's laid back style was great. Really great as a matter of fact. Emerson was pretty capable as well. The biggest part for me is that all of the people I mentioned here always did a great job live.

Maybe I shouldn't have picked ........... well, yes I should have. I spent good money to see Zep three times, and got burned every time. Anybody can mix and remix their studio albums till they sound great. Live performances is the measure of how good they are. But I don't think Zep was full of bad musicians. Every time I saw them, Plant was so ripped he probably thought he was still in England. And Page was practically ignoring the band. I suspect there was either some egomania going on, or else they had gotten to the point they rarely practiced together.

And the last time around, it didn't help that their lame Houses of the Holy had just come out. All I can say is I certainly felt let down. I have heard people say they made a great Zep concert. But even more who said they got burned. Yes, I've heard the comments Plant made about Zep later on too. How do you think I came up with those theories?

Can't believe I still feel like complaining after so many years. God only knows I've made my share of great concerts. Pink Floyd, Dark Side of the Moon tour. What a kick A** show that was. Jethro Tull, great performances twice. One show I went to simply because the guy played at the college in the little Virginia mountain town I lived in, who I would never have gone to see otherwise? Billy Preston. Quite the shock. He really knew how to put on a great show. Too bad I wasn't a fan.

Yes, I liked the Dead too. Especially the Kool Aid. On a serious note though, their shows were always ..... interesting. Key point, they loved to play live. Why did they quit holding all those outdoor shows like they used to do? Can't stand this modern method of security ......... security ............ security. Everywhere you look in a given stadium there's twenty people wearing yellow T shirts that say ........ security. Takes all the fun out of a concert.

To be honest, I'm too tight to hand over the $100 to $250 they seem to want for every quality act these days. Pretty much why I stopped making shows. Last one was ZZ Top, but my wife won tickets to that one. You can always count on them to perform though. But it was inside a 30k seat dome. Too small, isn't it?

It is indeed a matter of taste...... cool
Lord probably is better though imho he never did much as Purple went on..his best bits were on the earlier lp's especially Deep Purple In Rock.
Personally I think Emerson was better than Lord or Hensley. From his Nice years through the first 4 ELP lp's., Emerson was really good imo. Though I think Wakeman is probably actually the most talented one. I'm not a keyboard player but many like him the best.
Did you ever get into Greenslade? I have all of their original vinyl and Bedside Manners Are Extra on cd.
They had 2 keyboard men.... Dave Greenslade of course and Lawson. Not that many people remember them but I loved their proggy sound and somewhat mystical lyrics. Greenslade was in Colosseum and Lawson came out of a really interesting band called Web.

From what I think is their best lp...my favorite anyway.


If you like I can burn this and send it to you...or anything else you are looking for.

I saw Page and Plant in the 90's with pick up musicians in Chicago ...they were excellent, so the older live sound problems were probably drink and drugs.
Tull (1974)was great when i saw them..very professional and the Who (1974) were also very tight and sounded clean.

Another Greenslade track that shows how good these guys were on keyboards.


Re: What music are you listening to now?
Post by icepick on Mar 10th, 2012, 4:36pm

No, while definitely greats, neither Emerson or Wakeman surpassed him. Even in rock music his style is much harder to reproduce, and it is highly structured/arranged as well. What most people don't know about him is that he has much more orchestral music than Rock and Roll. I truly disliked the fact that playing a keyboard back then often meant you had to figure out how in the hell he pulled off the sound in some tune they wanted to play. The toughest part of keyboard work is often the chord arrangements, as opposed to solos and such. Why do you think I gave it up?

Well, carrying a C3 Hammond to upstairs nightclubs played a role as well. grin If you want to play good organ, a tone wheel is a must. Unless you know some way to pack a massive pipe organ around?

The stuff Page and Plant did in the 90s was good. No denying that. I'm still a Zep fan. It would take an act of congress for me to buy another ticket though. But most of their pre Houses of the Holy stuff was really good. A few weak tracks on two and three, but everybody suffers flux within an album. And quite often if you separate the tunes? You will discover it's only your mood of a given moment which makes one think some songs by the greats were not up to par. You gear up for one tune or so which you really like when you play an album, so the ones which have a different style aren't as appealing. I'm sure you know what I mean. Even Floyd often suffered from diversity on some releases, and if ever there was a band who thought out their sound, Floyd definitely qualifies.

Personalities can ruin a great band as well. Heep went into a major slide both during and after the Byron-Hensley blowout for example. And all kinds of weirdness came out of them. Another great example was the Eagles on The Long Run. They wound up simply going through the motions to complete it.

Can't say as I ever got into Greenslade, although I did hear of them. I will have to check it out. You have to remember, I got heavily into Blues as well. With so many obscure artists to dig through, I know I missed things. I almost overlooked Mahavishnu when I got into Blues real heavy. It was right around that time. I have also had Classical phases, as well as Bluegrass (my roots are in Bluegrass country). There is a lot of great music out there, is there not?

Some lists of keyboard players.....as always this is subjective based on tastes as icepick mentioned.

http://www.the-top-tens.com/lists/greatest-keyboard-player.asp

http://unspun.com/music-song-album/21791-best-rock-keyboard-players

http://www.digitaldreamdoor.com/pages/best_keyboard.html.

...seems like Emerson, Wakeman, and Lord are always right in the top ten.
I realy like Banks from Genesis..forgot to mention him earlier.
For me there are really two categories here: those you like musically and those who are technically better .
My favorite two are Wakeman and Banks musically because I love Yes and Genesis music but there are probably technically superior players out there.
People like Jan Hammer ( Mahavishnu,jeff beck), Ian Underwood (Zappa), Middleton (Beck), Corea with RTF are better technicians but then they mostly did fusion music.

Post by icepick on Mar 10th, 2012, 11:57pm

A couple of glaring vacancies every time Wu? Both are not well known, I don't even know their names. One played for Kansas, the other for Bloodrock. The reason for their not being mentioned? Probably because they never indulged in solos much. But they held that highly structured/arranged philosophy which truly great keyboard players must have.

This is the big problem where rating keyboard players is concerned. They are about 70% of the depth of every band that features one. But if they are too lax about their background parts, you quickly get a roller rink sound. When done properly, those parts must be played very precise at all times to sound right. Guitarists can get rowdy, or have off days and get away with it. Keyboard players have no such luxury. Especially if the primary keyboard they use is an organ. Hence the chord arrangements they create for every tune is far more indicative of their talent than their solos.

Yeah, it's quite understandable why so many people miss this fact. The rhythym/background/fill just doesn't seem that glamorous, does it? It's like being a bass player. You are the Rodney Dangerfield of music.

On the other hand, I guess you could legitimately point out that the only reason very many people know about Elmore James is because the likes of Hendrix and Clapton aped about the guy so much?

I do agree with your assertion that there are many great musicians who have been unjustly slighted by ever greatest list ever created though. It's a given. Music is an art form, so it's impossible to get that far beyond one's personal tastes in most cases, isn't it?

I was just thinking about that list at Rolling Stone which rates Dylan as the sixth best singer of all time. Hard to get off the floor every time I think about it. And I do like much of Dylan's stuff. But sing? ROFLMAO!

I see but one saving grace where rating musicians is concerned. The timeless aspect of music written by truly great artists keeps the pulp off most of these lists. Shall we remind the folks at the Grammies about this before the next Milli Vanilli shows up? grin

Icepick,
The keyboard player for Kansas was Steve Walsh. I was a 'roadie' for Kansas for a short time when they were still a bar band in the seventies and had 'The Pot County Pork and Bean Band' as their opening act!!! Another great mid-western band that unfortunately never caught on!

Thanks Lone, now I know the name. He is one of those rather unsung folks who is really very good on that instrument set, and deserves far more credit than he received in my opinion.

This happens to far too many great musicians. I knew an old guy in the little town I'm from in Virginia who had the Dobro mastered like nobody I ever heard. He did achieve a little recognition somehow, but not nearly enough. As a result, none of his music ever got recorded that I know of. One has to wonder how many people this happens to.

Steve Walsh did the boards for Kansas, another 'prog' band I liked....never really listened to Bloodrock much but I know of them.
I have to disagree with you on Lord...I think Wakeman and Emerson are better but then I liked their bands better than Purple who I often found boring at times. And as I said there are many jazz fusion players that are better than all 3 of them imho.
I don't know what you hear in Lord and I just recently replayed the best Purple lp's. Perhaps he's as good as you think but I simply don't hear that in most of the tracks they did. Maybe the problem is that the music was a bit too simplistic for me since I was heavily into early prog then. I'll give Lord another listen...what specific tracks do you think he really shined on?

ps; listen to the keyboard work by Emerson on the first ELP...I never heard Lord do anything even remotely as complex and beautiful as this with Purple.
Re: What music are you listening to now?
Post by icepick on Mar 11th, 2012, 2:28pm

It has nothing to do with his work in rock Wu. The man is a Classical artist as well. He's extremely good in rock. One of the very best. But it's in orchestral music that he truly shines. There aren't enough pieces in a rock band to accommodate the way this type of composer thinks. Nor is rock structured enough.

Although you really have to admire his use of distortion on that Hammond. No other organ player ever figured out how to create distortion with an organ by overdriving the amp. Not one. They all have to use an electronic aid like I did. Your pal Hensley could almost get it, but I was able to get that far as well. Any further and ......... well it would be a shame to call it music. Maybe it had something to do with the way he often played that Hammond like a piano, maybe it didn't. I no longer struggle with it. I really admire the feat, but I no longer indulge in a hobby where I often had to reproduce the sound.

But do you know how much it cost me to convert a C3 Hammond from Leslies to a pair of Marshal amps? I just had to try. I'm sure you understand.

Emerson and Wakeman were are both brilliant artists. I'm not denying that. One big clue about how much I admire a musician is when you hear me call them an artist by the way. I always try to make that distinction. But Wakeman and Emerson are both very much by the book, believe it or not. And there is nothing wrong with that. 99.9% of all keyboard players are. I learned very quick why most of the greats started with piano lessons when they were five or six. Every one of the people we've mentioned here did. Sure, you might, MIGHT, get away with one or two things using electronic equipment. But try it on a baby grand. It's when they play those that you know how much a keyboard player shines. By the way, I stank on one of those. You have to hit every key P E R F E C T L Y. Hence the reason such a high percentage are by the book. I really should have chosen something else to play considering my personality type. Too much of a perfectionist, and I started too late to perfect the skill.

My hat is off to every one of those people. You should take a piece of advice from me about ranking any musician in my opinion. Avoid labeling any great artist as better or best. Compile your list of greats, just so you can keep them separated from the commercialized pulp out there. God only knows there are far too many of those.

Notice how I managed to limit the use of names in this particular post? If I were to maintain what I'm preaching here, then I would still be posting when? Next June or something? Like I pointed out earlier, one thing you said earlier in this discussion is oh so very true. There is a limitless amount of great artists out there who never received any real recognition at all. At least the group seems limitless. I feel these ranking things people do causes a lot of that. But I will make one assertion here and stick to it. put any of the people we've mention in any of our discussions along these lines in a band together, and they will be able to hang. That's probably the best test of all.

I probably should refrain from these things, but never will. I get far too picky and passionate about the matter. Once you've been involved in music at least a tendency towards that attitude may be natural though. But have you ever noticed how many musicians can get along with any of their peers only so long? Now this is a syndrome I made a point of avoiding during my indulgence.

On the subject of keyboards though, it really matters not whether they are by the book or not when you measure their contribution to their band. Providing they are good of course. Their set of instruments is going to increase the depth of sound so much ......... it's why I prefer bands that feature them. So I guess you're getting ready to point out they are nearly a requirement in Progressive Rock? Don't bother. Actually I should say allow me .......... and good luck to anyone trying to pull off the sound of this genre without one. They are as much of a feature here as they are in Classical. For good reason in my opinion. They are to prog rock what a sax is to Jazz. Needed. In my opinion anyway.

I suppose I should recommend a concerto, but given the subject I'm not going to. Apples and oranges when you start mixing in hardcore composing in my opinion. You might try that Concerto for guitar and violin or the Gemini Suite, but neither are anywhere near the best examples.

So before I cut this off I should point out that both Emerson and Wakeman have taken shots at this type of thing as well, and produced good results as well. See? It really is nearly impossible to separate these people once they get to this level. They're just great, and that's it.

And yes, I am very envious. I only wish I could pull off a single example of what any of this group spits out as a matter of routine. Remember that they are getting up there as well. Music is really going to feel it when this particular generation of artists passes. I have a hunch about what inspired them, but nothing for positive. Whatever it is, it's substantial, and I wish they could spread it around amongst the younger group before leaving ...........

Music. I suspect my life would be bored to tears if it had not been there.

I take Emerson over Wakeman any day, Wakeman might have the edge but Emerson had much more aggressive tendancies and much more mischievious you didn`t quite know what was coming next.
No one beat his moog synth style and sound, Relayer was Yes finest album with no Wakeman on board, Patrick Moraz came in for this one Yes album and nailed it, that said had Vangelis joined this would have been incredible.
My favourite keyboard player Tony Carey of Rainbow late 75-76, he was a demon and his keyboard solos sounded like a symphony without the orchestra! Sadly Blackmore didn`t like his personality and only lasted the one studio album and the live epic On Stage, a few more recent Rainbow live albums documenting the band between 75-78 have been released as live albums.

I believe it's like I just got through saying PK. I don't think you can separate these guys. They are simply way too good.

On the majority of instruments one writes. But keyboard players have to build structures, or as is normally said, compose. It's a different world.

I think every band should have a good one. Think about all that added depth. And they help bass players keep guitarists honest as well, so the song really will remain the same. In my mind a lot of guitar players have way too much fun PK. A very creative type instrument to say the least, but look at how much freedom they offer the person playing it. Great for jams at concerts though.

But how many times did you not know the song until you heard the words? In my opinion guitars are at their best supercharging an audience. That ......... they are great for. I wish I had chose that instrument.

Ever think about music in the days of the Troubadors PK? When they had hardly any instruments?

Look at how spoiled we are today with our righteous spread of sounds. Guitars to make the music ultra dynamic. Keyboards to add depth. Throw in a Sax and give it some soul ........... no real reason to stop there, correct?

How pitiful their listening experience must have been. Where will music be in another six hundred years? Will they need every instrument of the day to get the ultimate sound like we do today? I know one thing. I'm glad we don't rely on troubadors today.

Relayer is a masterpiece especially The Gates Of Delirium, it`s a complete symphony not forgetting the manic and intense Sound Chaser, but what a way to end the album...To Be Over.
You can finally catch your breath on this beautiful ballad, Steve Howe once said creatively Relayer was their peak album. Close To The Edge is brilliant, Moraz gave that album something Wakeman couldn`t muster in the vein of Relayer.
The much touted Vangelis was to join in 74 for the Relayer album but sadly it never happened, had he joined he would have created a whole new dimension in Yes. He later went on to work with Anderson, both Wakeman and Emerson are the biz, 70s prog rock rules! PowerKnight wink

My problem with Relayer is its lack of strong pleasing melodies on the longer pieces. It's a cold album to me and they have written far prettier things in the past than To Be Over..imo.

For me it's a tough call since I really like Emerson's work on the first ELP and Wakeman's work on Close To The Edge,.

Cold? As in a lack of soul? No, not as in soul music, but you probably know that.

This can be an issue with keyboards, so long as you aren't thinking solos. Solos are a very small, unimportant piece actually, of the role of this group of instruments. But everybody seems to hang on them.

But if it's the depth part of keyboards you're referring to, it can definitely destroy any tune involved. I use a different term though. Clinical. Because that's what it makes me think and feel.

Any band featuring a set of boards should have a depth in their music that leaves one moved. Too many do not. And even the best has their bad moments. Understandable, considering the structure involved, but the great ones overcome this.

That said, this is an area where Walsh beats Wakeman hands down. It's very easy to sit back and get lost in those tunes by Kansas. Not nearly as easy to do so with the music of Yes. In short, I've always thought Wakeman did great with solos, but failed miserably at his primary job. Since the talent is there, perhaps this has something to do with other issues? Just sayin' ......... but I've always felt much more satisfied after listening to Kansas than Yes.

Point of Know Return being an excellent example in my opinion.

I like Kansas but...always liked Yes better and to me Walsh is good but Wakeman is simply better. His work on Fragile and Close To The Edge has both soul and melody and technical genius.

.btw my favorite Kansas piece is Song For America...imho their most epic piece.
I think Walsh does some of his best work on this one.

Wakeman takes it for his dexterity speed and versatility and I would consider him the finest keyboard player there ever has been.
Recently after a friend of mine who plays drums always pointed out to me Buddy Rich the worlds greatest drummer. Well after years of finding some form of proof I found on youtube...entitled The Impossible Drum Solo, I am yet to see or hear anything better than this.
His left hand technique is simply unique...pardon the pun, in fact it`s that fast much of it flat out drums it`s actually a blur and that`s no exaggeration!

Of course it comes down to a musicians mojo in the instrument they play or the way a singer can express and deliver a lyric, especially their own penned stuff.
Lyrics mean nothing, they have to be delivered! For my mind give me Wakeman`s 70s solo stuff over any of his Yes work, drummers I haven`t even bothered to check the list.
Why it`s basically a real mish mash of the times and they are never accurate no matter what instrument they play, unless drwu123 can correct me! Favourite drummer...easy...Cozy Powell...a legend and the second heaviest drummer of all time just behind Bonzo.
His early work in the very early 70s and all his Rainbow work defined what he stood for, saw him live three times.
The hit single Dance With The Devil was a real groove, second drummer for me John Bonham then Keith Moon but there are better drummers in different fields.

Not that big on his Jeff Beck days, a little too jazz orientated for my likeing I prefer Cozy when he attained a heavier sound and faster paced drummimg.
He was easliy one of the fastest double bass drummers there was, but it was his sound which sounded like a juggernaut. Live he was very heavy, his Rainbow days were awesome, Rising has to be the peak of his career, a legend, PowerKnight wink

If you must stick by the solos, that would be true. It all boils down to taste. In my book, Wakeman's background work boils down to that clinical sound. He obviously did not like that role.

I imagine, considering your fondness of the solo work, you must see Journey to the Center of the Earth as a premiere piece for Wakeman?

Oh no..you misunderstand .....I like Wakeman's work with Yes over his solo lp's. His keyboard work is great on his solo lp's but the songs aren't as interesting to me. I would take any of the classic Kansas lp's over Wakeman's solo ones.

I see. Well, technically, the music of early Yes is superior in that sense, but a tad to rigid for me. It's almost as technically Classical as that Concerto for Guitar and Violin was for Purple. I'm kind of funny in this respect. I like my Classical Music Classical if you know what I mean.

In case you don't, might I point out that Rock and Roll isn't a true musical genre? Only a four on floor type of beat which allows more notes to be crammed in a given hole. It has been applied to every form of music with success, but does not always sit well with the Classical styles in my opinion. There are exceptions ............ like early Genesis or Queen, but I see those as rarities. Something like the Mahavishnu Orchestra stuff was. When the heavier music bands pulled it off, they played more towards Rock and creativity, which made that music great. But when leaning to the classic side, it's not the same in my eyes.

There are many prog bands that combine classical styles with rock very well imo...I could name dozens by just going through any list on Prog Rock archives under the Symphonic Prog category.......so I'm not sure what you mean.
Mahavishnu of course was a fusion of rock and jazz as was Return To Forever.

Excuse me, I may not have worded that properly. Classic/classical styles. They only align well with Rock when the emphasis is on Rock in my opinion. Especially Classical, which has a warmth and maturity that's hard to match.

In my opinion the prog box has grown into another catch all genre. Not saying it isn't good. Just that the description has become a bit too broad. For some reason or other, much of this creativity seems to have vanished, so maybe it's splitting hairs now anyway.

Hence the term....Progressive Rock. It definitely is formed from rock elements merged with other styles.
I mean this is rock we are talking about..right? wink
If one wants to hear pure classical then throw on some Mozart.

The creativity is still there in many diverse styles ...believe me since I collect prog music and have probably 2 dozen newer bands that are still creating exciting music.
Two I currently enjoy are IQ and Wobbler.

Yes, a few are still at it. Precious few. But the definition got a tad broad in my opinion. About the time fast paced classical made it in. And this comes from someone who even developed a taste for Weather Report. Yes, if I want to lean heavily classical, I'll listen to Mozart. Although I find Brahms or Chopin more interesting. Chopin ............ killer compositions for solo piano work.

BTW, Nazareth sucks? A definite statement of taste if I ever heard it. Sometimes it feels better to simply cut loose. I think they have a definite comparison to Zep. Both started strong, and dropped off very quickly after four albums. Rampant is my favorite Nazareth release. With Zep I have to go with IV.

Yes, I even liked Molly Hatchet. I like most music actually. Except for that written specifically for the billboard charts. Commercial music does suck. In my opinion natch.

Now, now, don't be so touchy because of taste. grin

Besides, I only said I like them. However, Zep and Nazareth both really did go dry after similar lengths of time. And none of their members have made a true comeback of any impact that I know of. Plant had a short, very commercial burst, but that's about it. And hey, I'm a hardcore Zep fan too. Always will be. I finally came to grips with the fact they were more limited than I always wanted to believe. But ............ not every artist is loaded with an endless supply of music it seems. Some have only a finite supply.

Yeah, I've been struggling in trying to like David Gilmore's latest release for a long time. Now that ................. really was heartbreaking. Probably just an off release, so I hope it's not his last.

Methinks you pick at Nazareth's first two releases. Neither was up to par. In my opinion naturally. Still like the band though. Like I said, only truly commercial music turns me off. Like ........ say Bryan Adams. Fifty tunes, every one the same tune. And all boring as ......... I won't say it. Not on casebook. grin

I have an ex brother in law who is a musician as well. Way better than I was. Stihl guitar player and singer mainly. I think he likes every piece of music he hears. Even the jingles in commercials. The guy is simply tuned in to any sounds that have been arranged. Well, i never tried tossing out garbage can lids around him in a set pattern, but I'll bet he would pick up on it. cool

Again there simply isn't any comparison between the two...but I guess my taste is...classier. wink

IMO and most reviewers Zep didn't make a bad lp until In The Out Door...but it is about taste. ...btw, Page likes Presence the best.
Limited..? As compared to who and what other bands? By that thinking all rock bands are limited since most run out of good lps sooner than Zep ever did.
And Plant's solo work is better than most who went solo..imo. And his last 3 or 4 have recieved excellent reviews including th country folk rock he did with Krauss.
I think you are a bit out of touch... wink

Robert Plant on stage with Alison Krauss at Birmingham's NIA, 5 May 2008
From 2007–2008, Plant recorded and performed with bluegrass star Alison Krauss. A duet album, Raising Sand, was released on 23 October 2007 on Rounder Records. The album, recorded in Nashville and Los Angeles and produced by T-Bone Burnett, includes performances of lesser-known material from R&B, Blues, folk, and country songwriters including Mel Tillis, Townes Van Zandt, Gene Clark, Tom Waits, Doc Watson, Little Milton and The Everly Brothers. The song "Gone Gone Gone (Done Moved On)" from Raising Sand won a Grammy for Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals in 2008. Raising Sand also won Album of the Year at the 51st Grammy Awards.[24] The album has been successful critically and commercially, and was certified platinum on 4 March 2008.

No, I have the Plant and Krauss stuff. Or did you forget I'm from Bluegrass country?

By limited I meant, yes, they ran out of music. Remember this is Zep the band, not Plant or Page the artists. The shortcoming may have come from the other two members. It is a communal effort after all. But I never cared for Houses of the Holy, and they only climbed slightly from there IMO. I like IV because it follows the same mood and style so well.

But Plant's solo work? Take it or leave it in my opinion. It's all MOS.

I doubt you know the full extent of my true tastes. You should listen a little closer before claiming that high ground. wink

I simply like a very wide range of music is all.

BTW, whose critical acclaim? All too often critics aren't musicians or even similar. As a result ............. remember the Milli Vanilli flap?

You would probably be talking about the Santa Barbara Machine Head, although you may be thinking about Purple under their original name of Roundabout, which was still two members shy of developing the classic Purple sound associated with their Mark II, and I guess you could say Mark IV lineup as well. Hard to tell, he was working with many different musicians at the time.

Blackmore fans would be disappointed to hear the Machine Head stuff, as it reveals the true origins of the Purple sound, even though he was still several years away from kicking the Leslies to the curb and hooking direct to a Marshal Amp. That more than anything else was what helped him finally create his definitive style. Although I know of nobody else who figured out how to create distortion with a tone wheel Hammond by simply overdriving the amp. Under any circumstance I've seen, this produces a sound which would make a sick hippo sound good. Too much overdrive with tone wheels.

Any point in this drive through yesteryear? Besides possibly pointing out how dismal the post 65-75 era crop of keyboard players has been? They seem to have trailed off heavily after that period for some reason.

Yes, but he hides his inspiration for his lyrics very well in my opinion. He had lyrics full of life lessons at an early age which could have only been written by somebody, well, more experienced in life. I've always puzzled on this.

A very good blues player yes. He is slipping from that blues style somewhat though.

It was indeed Santa Barbara Machine Head...not Roundabout. Personally I was never a big Purple fan...I did like many of their radio hits but the albums lacked something for me. I became engrossed in prog in the early and mid 70's and 'concept' albums and liked lp's that had a kind of mystical/atmospheric bent to them.
The point of the last 2 posts..?...just fun and games ,and I like to listen to the old roots of bands before they became 'famous'.
Being 60 I liked that old retro sound since I bought the 45's for many of these early bands.

Who did this band turn into and don't cheat and look at the video until you guess.. cool

That one I would have never gotten. Wasn't that big of a fan. The only reason I know a lot about certain artists, was because of my instrument. Some people, like Lord or Hensley for example, you had to study a bit if you wanted to know how they developed their sound. Most of the people you like were straightforward and easy to figure. Sorry, but that's how the ball bounces. Perhaps the reason there are so few keyboard players today is because they take so long to master? Just a thought.

Never was much of one for 45s, even though I'm plenty old enough to have bought them. And pocket discs. Remember those bendable buddies? Albums back then sucked for the most part, so I got picky about music early on. No Dusty Springfield or Dave Clark Five crap here. I did buy that one Zep 45 though, because it was the only place to get that tune.

Your problem is that you probably rarely separate the tunes on an album? I always did. I had a couple of Teac reel to reels I spent hours recording music for. One for the house, the other adapted for the trunk of my car. Tunes of different styles always sound better when matched up with similar, and only two bands were really good at this in my opinion. Floyd, and Kansas. Everybody else jumped styles in the middle of their albums.

I loved Spooky Tooth . IMO their 2nd lp is one of the best and most interesting heavy rock bands at that time but they just never lived up to their potential.
I always liked lp's that flowed which is why i liked prog bands. IMO most prog bands linked their songs well together and were not all over the place like basic rock bands that focused on song tracks.

Straightforward and easy to follow..? I have no idea what you mean here since those I liked were into complex music with prog. IMO the hard rock bands were simplistic though I liked many of them also.

Not many remember that Genesis Wu.

Yes, straightforward and easy to figure. Fancy solos are cool, but it really isn't that hard to get your fingers rolling like that once you are practiced at it.

That said, I am forced to admit that if I tried to do that now after all these years? You would find me at the local ER, having my fingers untied. grin

Easy to figure and follow doesn't mean easy to do.

But certain techniques which you seem to think are simple? In reality they are nearly impossible to figure out, and very difficult to pull off. Keyboards are much different from guitars. I guess you would have to do it to know what I mean. And I haven't done it in so many years I have no room to talk anyway. It's not like riding a bike. Staying in practice is an absolute must.

I have heard that Sax players have the same problem though. Simple sounding stuff can be the toughest, and staying in practice is required just to get the thing to make a sound. I love the sound of a well played Sax.

Spooky Tooth? No, they weren't around long enough to do their definitive piece. I wonder why? The old creative differences? It's very easy to get to odds with members of your band. Musicians are funny this way. We get an idea of how we want something to sound. Including the other guy's instrument. Often not good for friendships ............

There's nothing starightforward and easy about most prog rock ....still don't know what you are referring to. I assume you must be referring to classic hard rock bands and not symphonic and eclectic prog.
The 3 chord rock bands, which are most of them, are indeed straightforward. That doesn't mean they didn't have great players but the songs/structures were very simplistic. Give me a band like the Stones, The Who, Zep, and I can ususally figure out their chords and basic song on rhythm guitar. With bands like Genesis, Yes and Crimson...I usually can't get their chord structures.

Is that what you mean?

The very late 60s through to the 70s prog rock was a defining era as indeed HR/HM of the 70s. There will never be another decade like it, prog rock has developed again over recent years but I really haven`t heard that much of it and to be honest what little I have heard doesen`t grab me.
For myself the magic isn`t there, Marillion back in the 80s weren`t bad but at the end of the day it was a Genesis sounding band with Fish another Gabriel on vocals. Dream Theatre are supposed to be a good band but I can`t understand why they have issued so many albums in tribute to their hero`s of the 70s prog bands etc. PowerKnight wink

I agree about Marillion...their early material is ok but the later stuff is not even that proggy imo.
I never really liked Dream Theater that much and I tried to get into them over the years. Something missing there for me but they are very good musicians .
While I agree that the best prog was from 1969-1980, there have been a number of really good neo-prog bands over the last 30 years. But I'm a progger and collect it so I'm biased toward that type of music to begin with. I also like fusion and jazzy prog so I collect those too.
One of my current favorites though they have been around for over 25 years...very solid prog with excellent musicians and a lot of soul/emotion to their music.



Re: What music are you listening to now?
Post by PowerKnight on Mar 27th, 2012, 3:56pm

I know you dig deeper and delve into the prog rock genre much more than I do, but it can get a little to abstract for my likeing and the jazzy fusion stuff isn`t quite my cup of tea.
I have always gone for the in my opinion progressive rock legends as it`s much more direct in what progressive rock stood for, if that makes any sense to you drwu123!
Much of that underground style which I think is around today with some modern prog style bands is a little looser for my taste?
Floyd, ELP, Yes, Genesis, had distinctive sound along with a few others although I really like The Moody Blues angle, progressive rock, metal is another angle I really like.
Rush were a prime example of this in the 70s, Queensryche explored this and I really like their slant, Operation Mindcrime is their magnum opus but their recent material has gone off the boil.
Many HR/HM bands were in actual fact progressive rock, metal, mostly the the early 70s before many of them had a breakthrough.
I despised the 80s commercial edge that many of these bands decided to pursue, the Scorpions after 1980 for example played this Bon Jovi type garbage which wasn`t really their style, before this they were superb.

Somewhat, but all the material you mention is pretty straightforward. No, I was not referring to the AC/DC variety of simple structure bands. Those are the third tier you're thinking of that turned up in the later 70s isn't it?

Remember that I'm thinking keyboard though. And I'm speaking of the ones with the 'clean' sound. Organs are tough to distort, and pianos basically don't do it at all. As far as the Moog goes? How many artists use the synthesizer as strictly its own instrument? I think we've mentioned the bulk of them here. It seems the synth has developed a different appeal, and started moving away from the realm of being this type of instrument. By the way, I hate the synthesize everything as a one man band sound. Rock lost its edge there in my opinion.

It's good to hear you mention chord structures. But even a three chord pattern can be tough when distorting the old tone wheel organs. And the totally electronic version has an extremely inferior sound in my opinion. Sound is an analog entity, not digital. We've gotten carried away with computers. How long before we dump the artist entirely?

The only thing more complex than prog rock is some jazz and classical.
You seem to be referring to distorted organ sounds but I'm not sure where complexity in music comes in there.
I'm referring to the actual musical piece itself.
I was referring to all basic rock/pop ...it's musically the simplest type. What individual musicians were doing to distort their instrument was not what I was talking about.

I love the progresive rock legends which after all is where I started with this sound.
But if one really gets into the prog area they will naturally graviate to other bands. It has become a hobby for me and many of the bands I collect I don't play as often as the classic prog groups but there are a few obscure ones that have become favorites for me .

A band I really like and is in my list of modern favorites... definitely not that mainstream. They have been compared to a modern version of Pink Floyd. Steve Wilson, the song writer, has solo albums that are very progressive at times. He has remastered the King Crimson catalogue for Fripp.
IMO one of the best songwriters working today and a very overlooked group.

Porcupine Tree- 'Even less'




*Another one by them....dedicated to icepick...the lyrics say it all.*
..nice guitar part in both songs...he's very tasty and compact in his leads...not a note wasted.


Hear the sound of music
Drifting in the aisles
Elevator prozac
Stretching on for miles

The music of the future
Will not entertain
It's only meant to repress
And neutralise your brain

Soul gets squeezed out
Edges get blunt
Demographic
Gives what you want

One of the wonders of the world is going down
It's going down I know
It's one of the blunders of the world that no-one cares
No-one cares enough

Now the sound of music
Comes in silver pills
Engineered to suit you
Building cheaper thrills

The music of rebellion
Makes you wanna rage
But it's made by millionaires
Who are nearly twice your age

Soul gets squeezed out
Edges get blunt
Demographic
Gives what you want

One of the wonders of the world is going down
It's going down I know
It's one of the blunders of the world that no-one cares
No-one cares enough

I appreciate the vocal abilities of the old crooners but the songs are simply too trite for me to enjoy on any regular basis. Some of Sinatra's stuff is cool but in general it's a bit too corny.
I do like jazz: post bop, 50's and 60's cool jazz, and later modern jazz fusion.

The crooner age back in it`s heyday was very popular but then mostly from that generation were the real listeners and buyers. It faded with time but it`s gained popularity status again and become quite in fashion again, the advertising industry has promoted this along with many other different themes in music.
Very often social climates inspire people but the last decade or so is very bleak and very depressing, it`s really having a negative effect.
Other than a few artists or bands people seem to have lost sight in imagination in music, this is what it`s all about, you don`t have to be a virtuoso musican but a competent player can be enough.
Todays take on singers is very bad, there are so many bands around but the singers are dreadful, they all sound very generic and many just don`t have the talent to really be a singer/frontman.
I know of a few younger generation to tell me well the current music scene is a lot more individual and different, yeh so what anyone can be individual and different but hell you have to have actual talent and produce something as original as you can and it has to sound like music.
I`ll tell you I`m not a musician and maybe I should have been but I have a very fertile imagination in the arts etc but many seem to lack this for what it`s worth, PowerKnight wink

Operation Mindcrime was both their musical and creative peak, sadly the sequel Mindcrime II although I have heard very little apparently doesen`t touch the first one? The very early Queensryche was standard HR/HM but on each release after kept progressing into different avenues in this genre, Geoff Tate/vocalist has a near operatic falsetto who was once deciding whether to go into opera singing or HR/HM. He chose the latter, the right choice! PowerKnight wink

These guys, and Poco, were doing country rock blues before the Eagles came along. Story goes that The Eagles (Glen Frey) stole their ideas from Furray and Poco...but I liked Illinois Speed Press better than all of them at that time. Paul Cotton of ISP of course ended up in Poco later...and Tim Schmidt from Poco went to The Eagles .

How can I describe Iced Earth...well its only the three studio albums I really go for featuring Tim "Ripper" Owens who has since departed.
Iron Maiden on speed is one description I suppose, in fact no Maiden fans agree with me on this but The Glorious Burden including The Gettysburg Trilogy blows anything Maiden have ever done.
This is MINDBLOWING, Ripper is outstanding and up there with the all time greats in HR/HM vocalists, a progressive speed metal masterpiece from start to finish.
It`s the full scope no fillers just glory, it is the ultimate war epic now set in stone and I really doubt it will be surpassed in this genre of music.

well, as of Friday night, having gone to a concert, I listened to three bands:
Ghost
Mastodon
Opeth

If you like metalcore/death metal/satanic pop metal, well, that covers your bases.

And before you go and poo poo the music, let it be known, a fun time was had by all. Everyone (well mostly, I sure didn't) knew the lyrics and sang along, smiles were smeared across the crowd, and though two of the three bands are from Sweden, they got a warm home style welcome from the audience.

Plus, you know, metal. Sometimes you need screaming, thrashing, gut-chopping guitar riffs backed by blast beats and sick, through-your-body bass lines. Or is that just me? Many devil horn fists were thrown that night.

Been a hard rock/metal fanatic all my life and I still am, I`m not really into the new scene of modern rock/metal bands and all that comes under this genre of music.
But it`s still around in form and many people love it, I like the development of the head banging...it`s now more the mosh pit.
I like it and it adds something much more primeval in us, the devil horn salute now a trademark in this genre, guess where that came from?
It was around a long time back but the great late Ronnie James DIO created the modern popularity back in 77ish during his Rainbow years and continues to this very day. Italian folklore the devils eye, his gran or mum would gesture him when he was younger, Italian immigrants.
It`s done everywhere including Britney Spears gigs!!!

Glad you liked it.......I have always been fan of melodic jazz.
I don't often listen to loud rock anymore....as in metal or very hard rock...I must be getting too old. I still play some intense prog rock but not the in your face crunch metal kind.

Never heard of Chastain before....good guitarist but didn't really care for that track that much... typical fusion metal.
Satriani of course is well known as well as people like Vai...again both excellent guitarists but in the end they seem derivative of earlier guitar styles. They play fast and clean but I don't hear a lot of 'soul' in these flash guitarists. Not knocking them, that's just my impression.
I liked Psycho Monkey better than Andalusia because I like psych rock and it had that edge.
btw I have a very large collection of older psych rock (1966-1979) and prog rock (1969-1980) as well as many new prog bands from 1980-present ...if you have any bands you want to know about just ask.

Muchas gracias. That's handier than a shirt pocket. smiley

Re: Chastain - I like his stuff, though that particular track is hardly the penultimate representation of his repertoire. I like fusion metal in general, since it's a departure from the usual blues and pentatontic paradigm of structure. He also demonstrates considerable skill with an acoustic, dipping into a ragtime influence, reminiscent of Steve Howe.

@Moksha: Satriani is awesome. His music has changed as he has aged, and it's definitely been for the better.

Dedicated to icepick ........who cares about the Province of the King..... cool




Lyrics:
Before the veil was lifted
And brought to light the facts
The whole deception was complete
The sons of fathers buried
Their unconnecting tracks
Beneath the layers of deceit

Another place and time we'd have known
We would have seen the last of the lonely

A beast of burden heard in the tangle of the wire
It's gone like it was never there
The great colossus rises and crackles under fire
The static charge is in the air

In other realms of reality
My imitation heart will defend me
To make secure what you believe

And surely as the day ends the night
It becomes a feast set for parasites

Another place and time we'd have known
We would have seen the lost and alone
In others realms of reality
My unrepentant heart will defend me
Again somehow
Not here, not now

Safer on the waves
Too dark upon the shore
Pressure builds again
More ragged than before
When the will dissolves
It changes everyone

Something worse than us is waiting in the wings
Can't prepare for this
Can't think of everything
Is it obvious what is and isn't done?

The province of the king
The wilderness of stolen things
The untold legacy
Inertia keeps it out of reach
Till I bring bad tidings
The phone rings
There's no-one there

You always said it's the one you needed
You should try to not be defeated
It's what you wanted, a supernova
But now it's landed, don't think it over
It's no invasion at all

You understand this, it's no solution
Still under sentence of execution
No-one like you can create confusion
Embrace the negative
With absolution your final positive reward

And I will follow you down
To where the silence is lost and found
Beyond the light that shines only inside
The province of the king

It comes to all of us
Until at last there's no-one else
And if that's what it always does
Then saviour, save yourself
How am I amazed?
How is it still concealed?
I cannot count the many ways
Because there's nothing real

What ransom do you bring
Before the wireless king?

A good song by him and written about the fashion industry which his sister was in as a fashion model and died as a result of the practices involved . At least that's what I read many years ago.

I have heard Vespero on you tube , not familiar with the others but I'll ck them out on you tube and prog rock archives.
I have many favorites but being older I tend to favor the classic prog bands . Some of my favorites:

King Crimson
Yes
Genesis (Gabriel years)
ELP
Pink Floyd
Camel
The Canterbury school: Caravan, Hatfield, Egg, Soft Machine...etc.
Roxy Music
Procol Harum
Van Der Graaf Generator

Some newer bands:

Porcupine Tree
IQ
Astra
Wobbler

I liked the God Is An Astronaut track....nice psychedelic space rock. I have bought from many websites over the years including Synphonic, Wayside, Doug Larson, Amazon, etc. I use Prog Rock Archives online all the time to look up and listen to various prog bands. A great resource.
If you scroll back through this music thread over the last few months you'll see some of my favorite songs posted .I also like some hard rock and blues and currently enjoying joe Bonamassa. I have an eclectic taste also and like some prog folk and jazz as well.

Anyone remember Starcastle a progressive rock band that never quite got the break and respect they probably deserved, I have the Real To Reel album but it`s not on par with their first two albums and a little more of a commercial edge sound.
Some said they were a little Yes in sound and style but I never got around in buying the first two and regarded the best albums they created. PowerKnight wink

Starcastle were indeed heavily influencd by Yes. IMo the second lp was their best though many like the first one better.

Comparison has often been suggested by many from where Van Halen gained some of their inspiration from, Eddie Van Halen has in the past said Montrose gave the band many ideas, ironic Sammy Hagar was once a member who then went on to front Van Halen.

I think Montrose , RIP, and Van halen are both excellent guitarists , but I never cared for the music/songs either band wrote. I agree with you on Metallica...overrated imo.

Eddie Van Halen isn`t really ranked alongside my fave`s, I have a top 5 guitarist poll and Eddie might make my top 10 list. But he was very innovative and ahead of his time, I`m not really up on Montrose so much I have a couple of vinyl albums but never got around to playing them!
It will be impossible for me to play and digest my entire music collection as I often can`t find the time to so, I have other interests in life and I keep buying more music in different formats. Along with discovering so many different genre`s of music I had no interest in the past, but music is my life, PowerKnight wink

Nice to know someone who recognises fine music when they hear it, next to the track I mentioned I go for number four on the list...I think it`s four.
I picked up on classical music in the late 70s but began to get really turned on about 1980 ish, by 83 I started buying the music.
Classical music cleanses the mind, these composers are legends and their music is universal in sound style and it`s timeless, for those who might not have picked up on it you really are missing something very special.
I only listen to Classic FM in the car and nothing else, driving and classical music is the only way, PowerKnight wink

PK,

ONE OF MY MINORS IN COLLEGE WAS MUSIC THEORY AND COMPOSITION...THIS WAS SO IF I WAS IN AN AIRPLANE,CRUISING,OR HOTEL,ETC.,....I COULD COMPOSE/WRITE MUSIC THAT I HAD IN MY HEAD WITHOUT REQUIRING ME TO HAVE A GUITAR OR PIANO FOR REFERENCES.
NONETHELESS,THE...(MY)... PROFESSORS HAD THEIR BIAS AS TO WHAT ONE WOULD BE EXPOSED TO AND FURTHER WOULD ANALYZE...ONE PROFESSOR WHOM I CONSIDERED ECLECTIC AND HAD MY RESPECT TURNED ME ON TO A RUSSIAN COMPOSER..."SERGEI RACHMONINOFF"...I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND ANY WORK BY HIM.
MOST WESTERN PROFESSORS HAVE A EUROPEAN BIAS IN WHAT THEY THINK YOU SHOULD SOAK IN...MY THEORY TEACHER IF YOU CONSIDER THE PIPELINE THEORY OF INFLUENCE...LIKE WHOSE TEACHER TAUGHT YOU AND DOWN THE LINE ETC.,....HAVING SAID THAT...MY TEACHER'S TEACHER WAS AT UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA....AND HIS TEACHER'S TEACHER WAS WAGNER...CONSIDERING THAT PIPELINE INFLUENCE ...I ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT WAS COOL...

THE OTHER COMPOSER THAT I THINK YOU WOULD APPRECIATE IS "CLAUDE DEBUSSY"...ONE SONG IN PARTICULAR I HAVE AN AFFINITY FOR IS "AFTERNOON OF A FAWN"...FOR YOU MUSICIANS...THIS COMPOSITION HAS A TIME SIGNATURE OF 9/8 WHEREIN MOST SONGS ON THE RADIO ARE TYPICALLY A 4/4 TIME SIGNATURE.

WELL TWO EXCELLENT COMPOSERS TO CONSIDER AND FREE MUSIC TRIVIA....FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH...

THE COMPOSERS I WISH HAD BEEN GIVEN MORE CONSIDERATION WITH MY PROFESSORS WERE THOSE LATIN AMERICAN COMPOSERS WITH THAT CORNUCOPIA OF LATINO RHYTHMS...
ES TABIEN...

EDIT TO ADD: TAKE THE ABOVE AND COMBINE JIMMY HENDRIX,BILLY GIBBONS,THE KING COMBO-(B.B.KING,FREDDIE KING,AND ALBERT KING,),ELMORE JAMES,ROBERT JOHNSON,BUDDY GUY,AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST...THAT OTHER TEXAS PHENOM...STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN...
WITH A FEW NOT MENTIONED...THEN YA GOT AN IDEA WHERE I COME FROM AND SOME IDEA AS TO WHERE MY MUSIC WILL REPRESENT IN THE FUTURE.

Re: What music are you listening to now?
Post by PowerKnight on Jul 3rd, 2012, 1:56pm

Hi ZETAR, I agree there are so many brilliant classical composers and a few probably underrated with it, I tend to prefer the grandiose symphonies.
Wagner Ride Of The Valkyries is just one example, but over the years my musical tastes are on a very broad spectrum, my personal favourite is the HR/HM genre of music.
Rainbow 1975-1978 is my speciality, not to be confused with anything after this date, I got lucky I met the the great Ronnie James DIO twice, he was the original and only Rainbow singer from that time.
Many HR/HM guitarists and musicians are influenced by classical forms, Ritchie Blackmore was one of the first to incorporate neo-classical HR/HM guitaring way back in Deep Purple from 68, it hit a high watermark in Rainbow especially from that time I mentioned.
Having complete control his fusion was unique and no one did it better, hence the band spawned so many clones after him and the band.
I`ll have to checkout your music in one of the threads on the site, PowerKnight wink

I've watched the 'Ronnie Scott' live video several times over the last year or so....great performance by all of them but I wish they had turned up Tal's bass since to me it sounded lost next to Becks guitar at times.

Hi drwu23, I only found out this morning, yesterday my wife listen`s to Radio 2 in the car and they were playing Smoke On The Water they do play the odd HR/HM track but I didn`t realise.
I knew Jon had been diagnosed with cancer last year I think, but it`s still a great shock, I think most musicians and fans alike all had a soft spot for Lordy.
Including myself a very approachable gentleman figure and a nice guy, Jon Lord was a real legend he will be missed indeed. Child In Time with Lord`s hammond intro was his trademark signature tune, I`m wondering how Blackers might react?
Even though he cut ties with Purple etc, he always still had so much respect for Jon, it will be interesting to see what type of comment if any he will put out?
It`s so sad to see these legends slowly passing away the musicians we grew up with, RIP Jon Lord, PowerKnight cry

Yes, I've read the Trower interviews where he talked about how he was mystified with the way Jimi's sound didn't match his fingers. BTW, not many people are aware of Jimi's secret Blues ambitions. I have a lot of his relatively unknown Blues works.

Yes, he did Zetar. It's not surprising that pickers like Robin and Stevie emerged. Jimi changed the way the guitar is played, all by his lonesome. But true to form of any great artist, he deferred all the credit to Elmore James. I still have a few releases from the man of the coke bottle glasses as well.

"Yes. Skip has a car, and we've got almost $200 dollars between us."
"You're only 15" (1969)

I've always liked the Doors....got all their stuff including live lp's and the one they did without him but used his poetry.
Don't know if I would call him a 'genius' anymore than many other good lyricists but he wrote some cool lyrics. Manzarek and Krieger wrote the 99% of the music.
btw Morrison's 2 poetry books are interesting.

I would call him a genius drwu23 just on a pure musical aspect, his very presence, charisma, delivery, not forgetting his voice and that wildman/frontman image, but he really had talent another who was born to play the part. Many of these now icon figures Morrison had a talent with it some seem to forget this due to his personal life, this should be excluded, he really couldn`t have been anything else other than what he became, genius can also imply insight, this is now a forgotten aspect in today`s modern musical scene.
Could The Doors without Morrsion`s impact made it as big as they did? His improtu improvisations added to a unique figure, inherent within himself and projected where it mattered on stage and live. PowerKnight wink

They had a few decent tracks but man was I let down after Spirit with these guys. Spirit was a true original and imho one of the best that ever existed at that time period. Jo Jo Gunne, and what's with that lame name, didn't have the originality that Spirit had nor the songwriting depth.

All of the Spirit lp's were great but 12 Dreams was special.


Re: What music are you listening to now?
Post by icepick on Aug 3rd, 2012, 11:49pm

I don't care what your opinion is Wu. Gunne had their share of good music. That track is nowhere near their best, only the best known. Music need not always be technically detailed to be great. Sometimes it's just a great atmosphere it sets. There are times one comes home fatigued beyond all reason, that the more relaxed or mellow, the better. Extreme physical exertion often leaves me in that mood.

Intense music after an intense day of something like falling timber? Asking for trouble. As the saying goes, work hard, play hard. I found on occasion that somebody else might easily pay for too much jump up and down after a day like that. cool

And now fast-forwarding to 1986, an extremely unappreciated and under-rated band called the Wild Swans released an absolute gem titled Bringing Home the Ashes. They had that classic Brit sound, reminding one of bands like The Smiths, Echo & the Bunnymen, Talk Talk, etc

Hi guys having a break from the grandchildren, I`m shattered!!! Looks like I`m way behind here on the topics, never liked the 80s scene of popular music no soul all plastic and fizz.
It`s now all but finished it`s quite rare to find real talent around in today`s musical scene, after years a friend of mine kept on about Buddy Rich as the greatest drummer.
He plays drums and among many likes the jazz type drummers, so I checked Buddy Rich out last week and among a few found The Impossible Drum Solo on YouTube.
Just when I thought I had heard them all this drum solo is the most incredible drum solo I have heard in my entire life and seen.
At 67 suffering from a cold it`s friggin insane, his left hand technique was just that...unique! The solo is basically flat out incorporating so many different styles along with his jazzy style, genius of the first degree.
I`m speechless, kudos to Buddy Rich, PowerKnight wink

I've always been a Buddy Rich fan, and have seen most of those video's. A couple I really liked were the Buddy Vs. Ed Shaughnessy drum battle on the Tonight Show. And the Muppets Animal vs. Buddy. His use of paradiddles, and the left hand drum rolls were simply amazing. There'll never be another Buddy Rich, IMO.

The review mention Electric Ladyland (Hendrix) meets Tago Mago (Can) and that sounded interesting enough for me...

Up for a 47 minute jam?

Cool, no I don't recall seeing Henry Rollins without Black Flag, I was into the early 80's Southern California Music scene, I was at the Longshoreman's Hall, in Wilmington, CAL on June, 24, 1983, when these hard-core Skin-heads chased all the bouncers out of the building and began to start destroying anything they could inside, Black Flas and Dead Kennedys were playing, until the cops showed up in riot gear..

I saw Black Sabbath back around 1974 or 75, they were pretty awesome...

Sorry, but I have not heard of any of those other bands you listed. My current musical tastes are for Russian and European (countries) Psychedelic, Space Rock, Prog rock stuff, long songs with extended jams...

Bands like: Vespero, My Brother the Wind, Spacious Minds, Korai Orom, Ole Lukkole, the more obscure the better!

Hi Mythos

Seeing Black Sabbath in the mid-70's with young Ozzy musta been totally awesome! cool

DRI was a 80's skater metal kinda band I would say

MOD was 80's speed metal-thrash metal type band

SOD was the two bands; MOD and Anthrax, who teamed together in the 80's to make a couple of albums... sounding mostly like speed-thrash metal

Cro-Mags were from a strange era in America - I learned of this group from some friends I went to school with in Dallas in the late 1980's. They would go through appearance trends and so they shaved their heads, wore all black and black combat boots. Funny thing was though, they did this as some form of statement, and they took up causes such as anti-drugs and anti-racism. They hated racist skinheads, and so I think they shaved their heads to tick them off. Anyways, it was kind of a strange rebellious way of looking at things... I used to give them a hard time about it, heh, make wise cracks tongue they were still my friends though, I didn't judge them, as long as they were not judging me, so we got along. smiley Cro-Mags was a band which appealed to this type of group of people though, they called them selves 'hardcore straightedge'

Celtic Frost was a strange group from the 80's too... I didn't get in to them too much, but some of it sounded alright.

I dunno what space rock is, but it sounds like some thing I could appreciate smiley

Anyone that has the Tool CD: Undertow, remove the CD holder and look on the backside of the paper-insert...

Powerknight, since you like the Outlaws? Have you heard their cover of the old Burl Ives classic?



It's one killer version.

I've always liked "Ghost Riders In The Sky". This is the first time I've heard these guys do it....good cover.

I've always liked that song a lot myself. It's amazing that Burl Ives came up with the basics of a tune like this which was more Rock than Country as far back as 1949. He wasn't exactly your average performer though.

How about Little Richard? The first time he tried to release Lucille was 1951. It seems the public wasn't prepared to accept a black man with a perm wearing lipstick back then. grin

The western world has come far in what we're capable of accepting, as has the eastern one. Only the Middle Eastern World remains stuck in the Dark Ages. We take too much for granted here.
