More Full Albums that I like....
Rainbow brings back memories. I always liked Blackmores guitar work. I remember Deep Purple when I bought Machine Head. early that spring and was lucky enough to See them play locally that summer in my town on the same tour they had the "Made in Japan" tour. It was so loud with the Marshall amps they used at the time I could not hear for three days. Later back then I found out they were actually listed in the "Guinness book of records" as the loudest rock band in that time period. They have a u-tube video of California Jam 1974 that if you hadn't seen the long version of Space Trucking toward the end of the concert has Richie B doing some crazy worth watching guitar work at his best. Jimmy Hendricks would have been proud of his showmanship at that gig to end the concert.
Anybody grilling this weekend? I just finished staining my deck and excited for it's summer party debut!
While posting my favorite all time albums....how did I forget this?
More fave albums from me...I can't give a top 10...like too many!
I like this dude as an actor and thought I may share some perspective?
Check him out in "Lawless" and "The Drop" and see the range.....
He is a darn fine actor no question. I saw him most recently in "Dunkirk" as a British Royal Air Force pilot
Yeah, I also reviewed him in the movies "Lawless" & "Locke." Tom is definitely talented. He knows how to convey genuine emotions without saying a word. Rage, apprehension, dismay, & you stepped on my last nerve & must pay the piper now. LOL!
Locke is fascinating because it takes place entirely in a car stuck on the freeway in traffic as he tries to get to the hospital before his mistress gives birth. Oh by the way, he's married to someone else with kids. Details; details. Complicated is an understatement.
Tom is good at subdued performances which look minimalist on the surface, but run very deep when you watch say "Lawless" twice & see how much he cares for the prohibition prostitute in the picture. He truly loves her.
Thanks for the Range recommendation brother.
As a kid I was such a sports fan that I’d wake up early on race day and listen to the Indy 500 on the radio!
I always wonder how descriptive announcers got on the radio about car crashes. You know, since the fan isn't there live in person how vividly do they document the broken fiber glass, the tire that catapults off the vehicle, & the safety of the driver.
I miss the mystique of radio that TV & the internet shattered after they arrived on the scene. It's not as easy to chronicle ambiance as some people think with just your speech, words, & tone.
Happy Mother's Day! For mothers and for soon to be ones or ones that have passed on living in your hearts. BTW any plans over on it?!
I'm a little late to the party here, but yes, mothers deserve to be honored for all the headaches we put them through as kids. The day itself is commercialized like crazy today. Having said all that, I agree with the notion of recognition & props for moms everywhere both here & departed unfortunately.
Top 10 All time Albums, Yes, we called them that....please feel free to add as always.....in no particular
I remember when Dave Mustaine released this album & I knew Metallica made a huge mistake firing him. Every track on here is groundbreaking in the metal arena. Nobody was putting together such complicated arrangements on guitar. Not even close.
Plus, Nick Menza RIP made sounds come out of his drums that truly blew the doors off your house & shattered your windows too. LOL! Hard to believe such a scrawny guy could bring the thunder & lightning behind his kit but he could. Amazing man. Jesus. See...
I always feel compelled to defend Megadeth because they always get dismissed over Metallica & Dave is a genius in the metal realm. He truly is. Right up there with Ronnie James Dio. No, I'm not kidding.
Full albums Son!
I agree @southwest1…."The Black Album" showed their range and ability and it didn't sit well with the fans from the beginning...evolve or perish...
@TheRustonRifle Well said brother! When I heard "Nothing Else Matters" for the first time, I was blown away that James could actually do that. Like you said his range was unbelievable. And "Sad But True" was a mixture of ballad plus metal too, so when some fans rejected this new sound; I knew that they just wanted copycat material that they had grown accustom to & they had no idea how landmark the Black Album really was. Sad really.
I really respect your knowledge of music RR7 as well as Lollygager8's & CC1's too.
Also, I know that Metallica used the movie "Spinal Tap" as inspiration for their Black album. I still LMAO when I see that scene when they unveil their new black album & nobody can see the album cover because of the glare coming off it like a shiny mirror. Rob Reiner was so hilarious chronicling those guys on tour in the movie.
Realized I have the same wedding date as the royals on the 19th. I don't pay attention them anymore, but some have told me this. Mine will be better. ;) Really have not watched or did much sports lately, sorry everyone. But I paid attention to who we drafted and score watch at times in basketball/baseball.
Rookie Mini-camp Week !!
Just felt like listening to AC/DC...Bon Scott of course...
Ruston Rifle, I loved old AC\DC but with the passing of Malcom and the current problem with the Singer situation I have my doubts about their future . But I love their music. I play the Guitar and I love playing their basic hard driving rock. It's easy for my level of expertise to play most of it. I also love Eddie Van Halen , But thus cannot play like him LOL.
Will do in May a month long tribute to Prince and George Michael RIP!
Miss ya man...
On the dare to be different front, checkout these German fellas doing a Jamaican version of the Police classic "So Lonely."
I gotta say this cover is intriguing & like nothing I have ever heard before. They need a horn section--A couple of trumpets & at least 1 trombone to pull this number off. Not bad as a Reggae knockoff though.
Toto always makes my day flow more smoothly man. It's a little rough around the edges, but still decent. The drummer & the keyboard player are off on their tempo & pacing, which prevents this number from being excellent I'm afraid.
Still, as far as open mic night is concerned, it's raw, fresh, & an admirable version nevertheless...
The band is called The Running Mates. Major props to anybody who straps on an instrument, steps on a stage, & let's themselves be vulnerable opening themselves up to scrutiny & criticism from the masses. Bravo!
THIS is what a draft looks like with a COMPETENT GM @ the helm !!
Open mic night...as always, feel free to add...
Good background tour stuff on Queensryche & Robert T. there Lolly. Still got those pants? Just messing with ya. 1 of the best names for a band ever. Queensryche just sounds cool as s***. I had an opportunity to see them in high school, but something came up. Darn it.
Robert can play bass with the best of em.
