      most memorable moment in concert history for me & yes it wasnt the greatful dead who saw good 400 times and yet this was more memorable moment

       

      1970  Stonybrook University GYM- sat right side of stage somewhat in front 0f it  ) no behind seats there

       

      10=15 feet behind me was monstrous speaker

       

      who doing Tommy  - suddenly Pete Townshend jumps up and strums guitar as screeching high pitched voice yells what seemed to be right into my ears HY MY NAME IS UNCLE ERNIE - they are still ringing

      You can't remember everything.:default_20smile: Rod Stewart is one of my favorite artists, so I had to mention this album.

      America- My favorite song of theirs is Sandman. The acoustic guitar work is excellent.

      Ventura Highway is my fave

    I like this dude as an actor and thought I may share some perspective?

     

    https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Hardy

     

    Check him out in "Lawless" and "The Drop" and see the range.....

    1. southwest1

      southwest1

       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. :thmup:

       

  7. In the late 70's and very early 80's, "New Wave" and "Punk Rock" threw a monkey wrench in to conventional music...thankfully...

      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.

      Scorpions-Love-at-First-Sting.jpg

       

      As far as debut albums are concerned, this Scorpions one still holds up today. 

       

      "Big City Nights" & "Still Loving You" were awesome tracks, but I liked the snare drum on...

      You know how sometimes black women have a weave & older men sometimes buy rugs or toupees to mask or cover a bald spot on their head?

       

      Is this guitarist named Chris Blade Johnson wearing a mop from the Home Shopping Network on his head as he jams out to "Prisoner" by Dokken? :lol: Reminds me of Wayne's World with Dana Carvey & Mike Myers actually...

       

       

      Or maybe his household cat naps up there while he plays I don't know.

      Since we already arrived in mullet heaven, cheesy glam rock with it's good old fashioned, sexist overtones & spandex workout gear seems like the next logical plateau right? 

       

       

      Lame, trashy, & catchy all rolled into one. I miss the 80's man. LOL! This was actually released in 2017 but sounds comically vintage though from the 1980's. 

       

      These boys from Sweden always crack me up! Almost like Spinal Tap tried to make a Top 10 train wreck single on purpose. I do like the tractor trailer mustache on the lead goof ball though. Figures, the lady has to play for the wrong team. Just joking! 

       

      I like  stuff so bad it grows on ya after awhile like a fuzzy fungus which eventually becomes decent & dare I say enduring after awhile. 

  10. Just felt like listening to AC/DC...Bon Scott of course...

      AC \DC has gone the root of old groups before them, guys die (Malcom) singers gone ect... The bringing in of Axel Rose for their last tour Not Good!

    4. horseshoecrabs

      horseshoecrabs

      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. 

  11. Enjoy Bro...............

      I remember "Crazy B" from Buckcherry. Good tune. Still has teeth as a song.

       

      Makes me wonder if you could still release this today as a single in light of #MeToo Movement. Who knows. Catchy hook that reverberates long after the song is over. 

  12. 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. 

    3. southwest1

      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!

      Whatever is going down in your life at the moment BR-549, always remember these eternal words of wisdom from Kansas: "Carry On My Wayward Son"...

       

      I sincerely hope all is well my friend. 

       

       

      The guitarist extraordinaire is a man named Martin Miller BTW.

      I saw Queensryche back in the day....the bass on Jet City Woman about made me $hit my pants lol. 

       

      Guess who opened for them.....who I really went to see.......?

       

      Suicidal Tendencies!!!! (who's bass player at the time Robert Trujillo joined a little band named Metallica)

      Good background tour stuff on Queensryche & Robert T. there Lolly. Still got those pants? Just messing with ya. haha 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.

      Love Chris man. His voice is so distinctive & pure. Nobody else like him. We will never hear 1 like it ever again. It just screams authentic dripping with life experience.

      Nice fireworks display on Cochise too. Love how he can stretch out his howl screams too. Nice gritty track there. 

       

      The guy just knows how to capture a room, a stadium, or whatever venue he strolls into. 

       

      Taylor Swift & Brittney Spears are still around & Cornell & Petty are gone. That's seriously messed up.

      I only know this Linken Park/Jay Z duo song "Numb" via the Micheal Mann's film "Miami Vice."

       

      I apologize in advance for any inappropriate language used moderators. 

       

       

      Micheal Mann is the man man. His soundtracks are always off the chain great because he understands how to create mystery, intrigue, & ambiance baby. 

  17. One of my favorite groups from the 90's...way underrated, imo.

      I haven't forgotten about writing you back RR7. I fell on some ice back when the Midwest got it's last snow storm & messed up my back. I'll be okay. I'm just not warm & fuzzy right now. LOL!

      Love Jimmy Page brother. :hat: He is so gifted strumming on guitar. That man can play anything. Plus, Jimmy has aged quite gracefully. He looks so darn cool with a ponytail too. Robert Plant can still carry a nice tune as well. 

       

      Jimmy+Page+Led+Zeppelin+Celebration+Day+

      Silent Lucidity is such a beautiful song. One of the greatest power ballads ever written RR7. I always think of high school proms, weddings, & evaporating virginity every single time I hear that epic number. 

       

      Excuse me, while I sway with my bic lighter & I don't even light up bro. haha

      RR#7, I'm watching one of your favorite movies from 25 years ago! 

       

      "The saddest thing in life is wasted talent, and the choices that you make will shape your life forever. But you can ask anybody from my neighborhood, and they'll just tell you this is just another Bronx tale." 

       

      Loved the movie!
