I'm wondering if it wasn't something to do with taxes or local restrictions. The Who also played East Troy in 1989 in lieu of a Chicago Date. Paul McCartney chose Rosemont instead of a Chicago venue also in 1989.

Quoteironbelly QuoteHappy Jack I recently picked the Mono Box set up bc I found it a local music store for a good price.

I see that it seems to be because it was "pop" like, which is what I had kind of guessed. Still its a weak start, fortunately they were able to improve upon it within a year.

It always perplexed me why the Stones would chose to make Come On their first single. As Chuck Berry covers go, this song always struck me as the weakest song. Further, looking at their sets at the time they had many other songs that would have made stronger debut singles and probably more representative of their sound at the time. So why Come On as their debut single?

When I saw this thread I am ironically listening to "Brother Loves Travelling Salvation Show". Since its use in Tarantino's "Once upon a time in Hollywood" this song has grown on me. I like how it sound like a faith revitalization performance.

QuoteCristiano Radtke Yesterday, everyone knew The Beatles. Today, only Jack remembers their songs. He’s about to become a very big deal. From Academy Award®-winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later) and Richard Curtis, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually and Notting Hill, comes a rock-n-roll comedy about music, dre

QuoteHappy24 Quotebuttons67 ive never got why elvis was so popular. according to most polls. 3 biggest selling acts of all time were the beatles michael jackson and elvis. dont get it, they all overrated. elvis never wrote a song in his life, was an average singer who just happened to wiggle his hips a bit more than most. An average singer? Seriously? As for not writing songs -

We all know the Beatles met Elvis. Zeppelin met Elvis in the 70s after one of his Vegas shows, but did the Stones ever meet him?

I'm not a revisionist but I have always felt Revolver is the better album between it and Sgt Peppers. Revolver seems less dated. This is not to say Pepper is not a great album. just that Revolver seems to be the album where the Beatles truly became the "Beatles", they stopped trying to be folk rock (Rubber Soul) or covering old rock and roll and country other material and started t

Id Like to add Queen and Queen II. Prior to Queen's fame their first two albums rock hard (almost as hard as Zeppelin at times). There is some very good material on the first couple albums such as Keep Yourself Alive, Great King Rat, Son And Daughter off the first album and Father to Son, and Seven Seas of Rhye from Queen II. These albums have the Queen sound heard later but with much heavie

Quoteloog droog I like The Who By Numbers as well. Last two weeks I've been listening to It's Hard in the car. I think there is some great stuff on that album. Daltry has rarely sounded better. It's Hard is not as bad of an album as some have made it out to be. I like Cry if You Want. When The Who performed it with My Generation a few years ago it kind of drove home the poin

The Who By Numbers-An antithesis to the bombast of Quadrophenia By Numbers is bright sounding, but lyrically very dark (probably amongst the Who's darkest lyrics and that includes Entwistles Success Story). Still a great album, the best song is Dreaming From the Waist, great bass playing by John Entwistle.

One question I've always wondered: what happened to Queen in the US in the 80s? After the 1982 tour they never toured North America with Freddie again. Its like they were hot in the 70s then in the early 80's, poof their popularity dissipated despite being popular every where else in the world. Any ideas why?

I think its a testament to Ron Malo and Chess Studios that the Chess Sessions are some of the best sounding Stones recordings of the Mid-60s. That echo is awesome. Since listening to Try Me, I've went back and listened to the Chess sessions and they sound amazing. Like Sun Studios or Motown, you can tell the Echo is natural as opposed to the artificial sounding echo that was created by the l

I think I would partially agree with that. After Elvis came out of the Army his sound and demeanor were different. His first hit after the Army (Stuck on You) has a sugary pop sound to it compared with what he did right before he went in (Ain't that Loving you Baby, King Creole). His best post Army hit was probably Little Sister which sounds closer to the pre-Army days than anything else h

I don't understand the praise for the Dirty Mac. Is it because its a supergroup? Eric Clapton looks and acts wasted and fails to give a classic guitar solo in either of the numbers. And I don't buy into Yoko's "Art" (Maybe you had to be there?), but she ruins an otherwise decent blues jam.

Quotetatters QuoteHappy Jack God I hope not. I love the Who but this would be a nail in the coffin to their legacy. I suppose this sort of thing becomes inevitable when a band sticks around as long as they have, but it's still a little depressing. I always thought The Who were the one band I would never lose interest in, and while I'm not one of these aging hipsters who thinks they
