      Checkout Amanda Brown laying down a Chris Cornell classic @RustonRifle#7:

       

       

      This cover gives me goosebumps man. The brass section, the beautiful tribute to the legend, & women getting their grove on always makes me smile. :D

       

      Plus, I was in both band & chorus in school so, I know how hard it is to pull this track off & sound polished. Amazing!

      The Who, whom are my favorite, always tested the waters with different musical genres.....I like this!  I appreciate uniqueness and originality....it is so lost on today's micro feed world.  I appreciate you Brother as you are unique....hence, why you are my friend!

      I wasn't sure where to put this so, I decided to drop it here. Some rockin' with Dokken classic "Unchain the Night" high caliber cover material...

       

       

      For @TheRustonRifle#7, @Lollygagger8, @malakai432 or anyone else who grew up on this band. The guitarist Rocco Pezzin replicates George Lynch's tones to perfection IMHO. Superb job!

      The 3rd video says Jimi, but it's actually the SRV version. That person who said it was Jimi should be ashamed! 

    3. lollygagger8

      lollygagger8

      I agree with y'all. 

       

      Jimi was the innovator, and SRV was influenced heavily by him. Not sure the student can be better than the master, but he's damn close! 

       

      I think Jimi was waaaaaaaaaaaaay ahead of his time. He was the reason I started playing, so I have to tip my hat to him. The sheer power/volume, effects, the way he played, was all a first of it's kind. He's getting those high notes on a right handed guitar upside down which is absolutely astonishing. Plus to do what he did while being on the drugs he was on while playing is a feat in itself! lol 

       

      That said, SRV was a much cleaner player, and I feel more blues based. His tone was perfectly honed and people strive for it to this day. I think he took the blues/rock/Jimi thing to the next level as far as sound/ability/tone. He was next level as a player, and a great showman in his own right.

      I agree with crazycolt.....so many excellent guitar players out there. All different styles. 

      Jimi, SRV, Eric Clapton, Eric Johnson, Joe Stariani, Steve Vai, Dimebag Darrell (Pantera) ....I could be here all day!  

       

      I've seen Bonamassa live, and he's absolutely amazing. I taped this front row of his concert here in Fort Wayne....he was somehow better live than on studio recordings! 

       

      Dude did all that on an acoustic! lol 

       

      I've been getting into Doyle Bramhall II lately. He's written alot for Eric Clapton. He's not amazing guitar player, but he's good and a heckuva a song writer. 

      He's got a new album coming out, and Clapton is on this song: 

       

      Here's some of his older stuff (Jimi inspired!) : 

       

      This is one of my favorite's of his: 

       

  3. @lollygagger8 @BR-549 as well...I just can't get this song out of my head...how did I not appreciate it more back in the day????????

     

    The intro just kicks butt...………..and then gets better!

      SRV is bleeping superb no matter what the man does. Why must legends die early well before the world is willing to let them go? It always bothers me. At any rate, tremendous selection RR7! :thmup:

       

      Appreciate the insights from CC1 & Lolly8 as always too. 

       

      Thanks Lolly8 for the Bonamassa live clip BTW. Jesus! He's magical when he teams up with Beth Hart on stage as well. That's a long time to hold your cell phone up. Thanks for the sacrifice so the rest of us can marvel at his musicianship. :banana:

      SRV's version of Little Wing is actually better than the original in my book. 

       

      But Gypsy Eyes is still my favorite song in the world. Jimi was the innovator, and the reason I started playing. I heard it on my mom's record, and I said, that's it......I want to do that!

      My favorite Jimi song is Power To Love off the Band Of Gypsy's album. I also like all of his covers of the Dylan songs too.

      Darn man, even sound check/rehearsal stuff sounds good. That's how you know SRV is special, his improv, goofing around shenanigans  could qualify as a multi-platinum album just on the fly.

  5. You once told me that you liked this song. I heard it yesterday and found this live version of it. It is a great song.

     

    Btw, hope you had a Happy Father's Day with your lovely daughter.

     

     

    And how about this one?

     

     

    I love 70s music.

      Awesome thank you for rembering and sharing.  We had a great Father's Day together

      Good call on the soothing sounds of the 70's NFLfan. I couldn't agree more.

       

      Happy belated Fathers Day Out There to all the dads. Here's hoping you all got something more than a tie, toolbox, grill, or set of golf clubs. Unless you actually wanted those things. LOL!

      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

      Thanks for the shout out RR7!  Since Mr. Vai was on your brain, here ya go...

       

       

      "That's Steve Vai. What a nice little boy." Wha Wha...

      I really enjoyed this collaboration with David Coverdale that still holds up well even in 2018.

       

       

      A top tier power ballad that Vai was vital on while touring with WS in the 90's man.

       

      I love how David elongates or stretches out the words "emotion" & "devotion". Good stuff.

    3. southwest1

      I wasn't sure where to put this. Yes, I know it's not Steve Vai related. However, despite that fact, I wanted you to see a well done instrumental treatment of "I Was Made For Lovin' You" by some talented Russian musicians. Women can most certainly bring the house down.

       

       

      The face paint was pretty cool. I especially liked Ace Frehley's makeup job. And of course, drummer Peter Criss as the cat. This time on keyboard in this version. Paul Stanley's star was a nice touch too.

       

      Folks from Mother Russia specialize in caviar, vodka, & timeless Rock N Roll baby. Oh Yeah. The production value is stellar & off the chain IMHO.

      Nice selections as always RR7. Appreciate the Blackie Lawless stuff as well as Rainbow, Whitesnake, Autograph, & several other bands you posted brother. :scoregood:

       

      People unfamiliar with WASP always get the wrong impression. You know that Blackie had an addiction problem when it came to the opposite sex. That Apache frontman is very sharp. Part of it, was just designed to tick off the PMRC [Parents Music Resource Center]; Part of it was just to go against the grain to manufacture controversy to sell millions of records; & part of it was just the rock n roll lifestyle back in the day. Blackie is a very deep thinker who articulates his point of view exceptually well in 1 on 1 interviews overall.

      Kudos on your Peter Gabriel choices too. Gotta add 1 more from his catalog though.

       

       

      A very unrated song of the highest caliber. Enough said.

      Regarding my cover of "I Don't Care Anymore" by HY I posted yesterday, I forgot to mention this: My condolences to the family of Vinnie Paul, former drummer of Pantera, who passed away on June 22nd.

       

      I always get depressed when musicians die because they represent the closest thing to pure creativity we have left in this world. Some comedians like George Carlin & Robin Williams float among this unique realm too.

       

      When you see quality musicians bond with a crowd & occupy a brief live space where nothing else matters for a 2 hour set, it's pretty amazing.

  11. More Full Albums that I like....

      Hey there RR7,

       

      Just listening to your Neil Young greatest hits post man. Good s**t!

       

      Canadians are such stellar musicians. Gotta be something in the water up there or "Down By The River" no doubt. :D

  12. While posting my favorite all time albums....how did I forget this?
