Right now, I'm listening to the original London soundtrack of "Les Miserables" from the late 1990s.

What kind of music do I currently listen to? I'll listen to bits of everything, except metal or whatever's on the Top 40.

For me it depends on the "metal". In the early 80's, I didn't care for AC/DC. Now I like what they did. Same goes for KISS.

I didn't mind top 40 when Casey Kasem was doing American Top 40 in the late 70's and early 80's. How else would I have heard Foreigner's Waiting for a Girl like You?

As for today's top 40, I haven't a clue. I listen to classic rock stations.

I didn't begin to appreciate the interplay between the brothers until probably about 10 years ago. Malcolm Young may have been the best, the most disciplined rhythm ever in the business. What Keith Richards was before he became a star and started fucking around all the time.

Watch this thing they did with High Voltage at the Donington concert in 1991. Listen to how Malcom just keeps driving the rhythm without a hitch while Angus is doing all his show-offy giving head to my guitar...stuff.

PS - they were also the best AC/DC incarnation when Chris Slade was in the drum kit.

PSS - I don't really think AC/DC even qualifies as a "metal" band. I don't know why they ended up in so many "metal" band shows. They were/are just an extremely hard rocking...rock band. Angus has a few "metal" type licks. But they've always been what I would call a hard rock band.

For instance....

Saw them, Winterland, around 76 I suppose, or later.

Not sure what year but long time ago, and Peter was still with them, I think.
Wait, no he probably wasnt.

I did a lot of drugs back then, hard to remember shit

Speaking of drugs and shit. I've been enjoying listening to this one this morning...

Image

...although not anywhere near as much as I enjoyed it sitting 3rd row center of the first balcony at the Auditorium Theater on Friday night October 22, 1971. We dropped the red microdots, hopped in the Opel Kadett, and rolled down Lake Shore Dr. to see The New Riders of the Purple Sage with Garcia on pedal steel, and then the Dead.

A little triviality about this show. On October 19th the Dead played "One More Saturday Night" at the U. of MN. for the first time. It had never been released on vinyl so the kids up there were the first people on earth to hear it. We were the second. Nobody in the place, with the exception of travelers who had been at the Northrup Auditorium up there on Tuesday night, had ever heard it before. The room went fucking nuts.

Sorry...I could not find a single youtube or other video anywhere on the web as a sample.

I'm ready for an "island party". What's an island party you ask? You drive west out of Havre, MT. Several miles out of town you take a dirt road to the Milk river. There is a small pavilion. You kick off your shoes and wade across part of the river to an island in the middle of the river. Bring plenty of Mary Jane, beer and a loud stereo. Then crank this. :D

I guess I'm not the only one that likes this song. 45+ Million views. This is my favorite song by Kansas. Back in the 90s, my ex and I were set up in the park for Pig Out. We were stuffed over in front of the Looff Carousel. That was playing Alexander's Ragtime Band and Rum and Coca-Cola. The moron that was setting it up put a little band (from somewhere in South America) about 15 feet in front of us. The leader of the band played a pan flute. They would play this song. And each and every time, he'd hit the wrong note. 5 days of torture.

Then in 2008 or so, Toyota used this song in one of their commercials. At the time I only got over the air channels. The ONLY channels that I didn't see the commercial was on PBS. I swear that that commercial was on about every 20 minutes or so. It was so bad that wherever I was in the apartment, I had the remote with me. It's a wonder I didn't wear out the mute button. :rw) I was really beginning to hate this song. Took a couple years before I could listen to it without cringing.

Love that song. I've heard the Russian version too. You can follow along if you already know the words to the English version.

Since we're doing the Stones, since seeing Whoopi Goldberg in the movie with the same name.... I associate this song with that movie. B Flat!

Can't embed this, it's a playlist. It's Boston's first album. It's one of the rare ones for me because I love every song on the album. Was at my friend's brother's yard sale last summer. The sis-in-law had loads of albums for sale. I dug through the stack and found this album. I pulled it out, took the album from the sleeve, and checked both sides in the sunlight. It's in primo condition. I snapped it up. Cost me all of $1. What a deal.

Track listing

Side one
No. Title Length
1. "More Than a Feeling" 4:46
2. "Peace of Mind" 5:02
3. "Foreplay/Long Time" 7:47
Side two
No. Title Length
4. "Rock & Roll Band" 3:00
5. "Smokin'" (Brad Delp, Scholz) 4:22
6. "Hitch a Ride" 4:12
7. "Something About You" 3:48
8. "Let Me Take You Home Tonight" 4:44

I don't know what happened to the radio. I can't find a station that plays the things I want. I am fortunate to have KPFA, because on Thursday they have a Dead show, and live studio music. On weekends they used to have a blues shows, but I don't know if it is still on.

I played two CDs the other day: Wake of the Flood and Tripping the Live Fantastic.

I'm not what you would call a "deadhead". A bit of their stuff I like. I can tell you that this is my favorite song by them.

www.youtube.com Video from : www.youtube.com


It was about a year after Jerry Garcia died. I was walking through the local Nordstrom and saw a guy that was the spitting image of Jerry Garcia. I did a double take. When I got back to the park, I said to my ex "Jerry Garcia lives". He thought I was nuts until I clued him in. :rw)

One of my favorites from the Beatles.

I've been to hear a lot of live rock shows including Paul McCartney, but being in Berkeley I could walk to the Keystone to hear Jerry perform. An era gone by.

Got to see this performed live back in '78. It was at the Harry Adams field house (UofM) in Missoula. My first concert.

This was my 2nd concert at the same place.

Long story. Back in '81 I was working for my uncles in the grocery store they owned in Ennis, Mt. I was living with one uncle in the apartment above the store. Also living there was a step-son from an ex of the other uncle. There were 2 bedrooms in the front. To get into the one bedroom, you had to walk through the other bedroom.

So idiot ex step-son decides he wants to cut a hole in the wall so each bedroom had it's own door. I told the idiot to let me know when he was going to do the job. Because I wanted to cover my stereo and albums with a sheet to keep the sawdust out.

Well he didn't. I was pissed. Just before I quit working for the uncles and going back to Missoula, I five finger discounted this album from the idiot ex step-son as payback. I've never listened to it. And it's in brand new condition. It was pressed in Germany.

I've listened intently to electric guitarists from the beginning with James Burton and Eddie Cochran to Jack White and Dan Auerbach. From Muddy Waters to Gary Clark, Jr. Nobody plays like Jeff Beck. He has the most unique sound in the history of the electric guitar.
