part of my electic tastes

 

 

 

 

... While I listen to quite a bit of different music, my staple is the 70's. Not only was it a great era for musical exploration taking advantage of varied and unusual instruments but the lyrics were as important as the music. I have little interest in vapid lyrics or the current self centered lyrics. As bad a rap some give the Eagles because of their most popular very pedestrian hits, songs like Hotel California, Last Resort and Desperado are as poignant and relevant today as they were when recorded. I worked as a DJ making my way from a small town in NC all the way to Chicago and the music of that era has a special place in my soul. The day Hotel California was released is only equaled by the first time I heard Sgt Peppers. 

... I also spent 2 years working 2pm-6pm afternoon drive for a country station in Chicago because our station changed formats, and absolutely hated every minute of it and could not have been happier when WCKG, a new rock station hired me to do mid days. So while I do not care for Country, Rap or 80's music or any pop since the late 70's I have always felt like the more music you can embrace the better. So I applaud your eclecticity! My son listened to all my music growing up and thinks the Beatles were transcendent, loves 70's music but also likes the 80's, Rap and just about anything else. He balks at current pop, what tries to pass for R&B and hates country but I think his eclectic taste enriches his life musically.

Don't know how many of you guys might be in to this sort of thing, but my son Sam's band is releasing its first CD today.  The band is called Sammy Strings (that's my boy!) and the Can of Bliss.  Chec

... I will be listening to Cheap Trick and ZZ Top tomorrow night at the Tinley Park Amphitheater. And I scored tickets for TOOL this morning playing the United Center in November.  

No matter what you might think personally about this guy.....................he was an extraordinay guitar player.

Rory is one of my all-time favorites. His playing on “Hands Up” is a clinic on classic rock lead guitar playing.

... Love Joe Bonamassa. I have seen him 4 times in concert and he is unreal. Only bad concert was in Indianapolis and those yahoos kept screaming and whooping all thru his performance. Never saw so many people getting up and down for alcohol runs in the middle of tunes. He was playing an acoustic solo and asked the audience to be quiet and of course they cheered that. This is my video collection:

The new 311 album is really good. Haven't been into them over their last few albums, but this one is a jam from start to finish.

This week is a trip down memory lane.  I am visiting my son and listening to vinyl albums.  I gave him my record collection, my B&O Beomaster 8000 system with Magnapan speakers.  We’re in his music room going through the best of the collection.  

Abbey Road, Sargent Pepper’s, Van Morrison, Miles Davis Kind of Blue, etc.  

The system still sounds great 35+ years after I bought it.

 

Fun times with my son.

My wife hates most of my music. She is not a fan of Scorpions or The Allman Brothers but I’ve got her hooked on Keith Richards’ Talk is Cheap album. Got the turntable going with this one right now.
