QuoteDGA35 QuoteRollingFreak Black Ice was just way too long. That was its biggest issue. They haven't had a truly great album where more than 1/3 of it is good in an incredibly long time. Same thing Stones fans here said about Bigger Bang about the length of the album/cd. Regarding a truly great album where more than 1/3 is good, I can't think of any band that has been around since

QuoteDandelionPowderman QuoteJavadave Dr. Anthony Fauci is predicting a vaccine will be ready by year’s end. I fully expect large scale sporting events and concerts to resume quickly once vaccinations are widespread. Still won’t get me to go see Guns ‘n Roses. Do you have a link to Fauci's quote? Sounds unlikely, as functional vaccines for viruses like this often take 6-10 years to dev

Quotejbwelda I think I would tend to agree. But the HOF is pretty much scraping the bottom of the barrel with some of the nominees in the past. Poco was pretty good, short lived in its original form but nothing real standout in my mind. Couple of pretty good albums at the time. Even with homeboy Schmidt on bass, maybe the country western hall of fame might be more fitting. jb Right, but I gu

They are a perfect example of a band I think would go in a Very Good Hall Of Fame and not a truly great one. Great band, I like a lot of their stuff. Wouldn't think they belong in a true Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Over Madonna, Janet Jackson, etc? Absolutely. But they go along with guys like Cheap Trick and T Rex and the Zombies to me that are great bands, but you aren't a Hall Of Fame

You don't mention the only other track on For Those About To Rock that I don't mind, which is I Put The Finger On You lol. Only other songs besides the title track I even remotely cared about.

Lol I've literally done nothing to be confrontational here so I shall end the conversation. I was only trying to be amenable. Obviously thats not possible in literally capacity. The snarkiness in the first paragraph is uncalled for and pointed and just not worth it.

QuoteHairball Never really put that much thought in to it to be honest as it was always my least favorite on GHS. Crazy Mama from Black and Blue on the other hand is great and have always loved everything about it. I'd say there's at least several tunes on Some Girls that have about a thousand times more energy and unpolished "rollickingness" than the mediocre Star Star thou

QuoteHairball There's nothing really special or "lightning in a bottle" about it imo as its basically a Chuck Berry tune with some sleazy Jagger lyrics. Absolutely. There's just an energy about it that, I'd maybe argue, they never really captured again in the studio. There's a rollickingness that they never got back to because things were just too polished afterwar

QuoteHairball I love Can You Hear The Music and Hide Your Love, and would never think of replacing either. If forced to replace one though, I'd have to pick Star Star and insert Save Me aka Criss Cross in it's place. That said, I enjoy all of the the live versions of Star Star...far more than the studio version. Funny, I like Star Star live but I actually think there's something

Quotedmay Checked out the video. Made myself sit through it. Musically, pretty generic to me with no real dynamic to the music. I got more interested in looking at how MJ, KR and RW moved about the stage. To me, they performed as if they were believing in and acting out their own mythology, that this is the way the Rolling Stones are supposed to look and move (and sound) when giving a concert.

He also won an Oscar for Tarzan in the 90s. Obviously that was kinda a comeback for him, and no I'd never really compare him to Elvis or Michael, although Phil Collins has been a huge name for a very long time for many different reasons. With Genesis, solo, just as an in demand working musician with shit like Live Aid, Genesis comeback, getting an Oscar, Genesis comeback yet again. He's

Quotebatcave "Y’know, there have been some great English blues bands in the 60s and 70s and some great singers. I loved Stevie Marriott; he was one I hoped would stick around for a while. What a great voice and guitar player. And a lot of other cats too like Jeremy Spencer and Peter Green and you’d wonder where they’d come from. These guys are playing the blues and they really are doing it.”

QuoteTIRED QuoteMartinB I still can't believe that on Dylan's website it says False Prophet, written by Bob Dylan. I agree... same goes with "Beyond The Horizon", which has been more than just inspired by "Red Sails In The Sunset". Bob Dylan is the greatest songwriter of the 20th century, but he should give credit to other authors when it is so obviously due.

I was gonna say I truly don't know what stops them from doing this kind of setlist every night, and then I realized I guess its rehearsal. Having said that, I'd pay just to see them do ramshackle versions of a great songs like this. It'd be even better if they were super tight, but I'd take it just seeming like a rehearsal session to them. We're all friends at this point,

I remember the Greendale tour when he presented what was a stage show about the album and town of Greendale and its inhabitants. Many in the audience were perplexed as to what was going on.

When Neil is involved, typically something is gonna be good. Or at least its gonna have that ENERGY behind it, which this had. He's not doing it to make a buck. Its because, that morning, he felt like being in Buffalo Springfield lol.

Quotejbwelda I think in retrospect, Ringo came out of that whole mess the best off. He gives the impression of really enjoying life, which the other three had a real problem with if you ask me. jb Ringo had the least to live up to. Ringo could enjoy being a @#$%& Beatle, in a way the others couldn't. Ringo is a great drummer, but the others had such extraordinary talent so early on. John

Quotejbwelda Whats the verdict on that Live Anthology? 4 cds in its normal state, i guess up to 6 cds and 3 dvds in the expanded form. Normal can be had dirt cheap but the deluxe editions start costing coin. I am particularly interested in the "official bootleg" disk in one of the deluxe gigs, only 4 or 5 songs but i believe it is the one i taped off the radio all those years ago. j

Wow! The Rock and Roll Circus is one of my favorite things ever. Has the other version of Sympathy for the Devil, with Brian on guitar instead of Keith I believe, ever been released? Also, I guess this is a rehearsal? I'd also love to hear Jethro Tull's Fat Man.

I saw him do Smile around the same time, and he was just excellent. That was really a great time to be a Brian fan. As you say, he was in top form and really the last time he was truly great and seemed concious.

My girlfriend and I were just watching The Morning Show and they did an episode about the Vegas shootings and she asked how I knew exactly when that was and I said because Tom Petty died later that day as well. That was a horrible day waking up for work at 2am and hearing the Vegas stuff, covering it all day, then coming home to hear Tom Petty was in the hospital and died. I miss him so much.

Ziggy Stardust really is one of the most perfect albums of all time. The fact that Bowie did that in the same year as All The Young Dudes and Transformer is the stuff of legends.
