By the way, the Satellites third and last album - In The Land Of Salvation and Sin - is a bonafide Classic!!! It’s tremendous, IMO.
We seem to have the same taste, so I'll definitely check that out.
Jeff told me a story once about when Kansas toured with Queen, and how they were all bored one day waiting to go on that night - and I have the details hazy because my jaw was dropped throughout the story because I'm a HUGE Queen fan - but he said Freddie wanted to go see a movie (I forget which one) and no one else wanted to go, so Jeff said he'd go.
And they could have walked to the theater, but Freddie called for a car (or a limo, I forget). And then there weren't enough people outside the theater, so Freddie made the car circle the block a few times until a crowd formed.
And when inside - I seem to remember the movie either being a documentary or a biopic - Freddie leaned over to Jeff and said 'they should make a movie about my life, darling.'
It's a good day to celebrate. Not only is it President's Day (and a Holiday for me), but also, we have the latest release from the greatest band in the land, Avantasia.
Tobias Sammet is back with another All Star cast, and on the title track, we have Toby and Candice Night (Ritchie Blackmore's wife, and the voice of Blackmore's Night) in a rather tame duo that will have you singing the tune in your head over and over, after a single listen.
To ski or not to ski...that's not even a question.
What?! How did this one get by me? Gotta listen stat!
I try to check new music (new as in current and/or music I’ve never heard before) as much as I can. There are five albums released just today that I’d like to make a point of listening to over the next week. Of course, I have my favorites (usually Electric Wizard), which take up the majority of my music-listening time.
Favorite album this year has been Asterismal by 11 Paranoias, a UK doom metal/psych rock band with a Hawkwind vibe. Trippy and crushing in equal measure, not to mention varied and well paced. Feels like a proper album.
This thread should be called 'What are you Listening to?'
I was so glad the day I could get rid of all those CDs.
Well, I did start this thread 10 years ago...
Proof I've been around a long, long time... I think something might have happened to my post total when I changed screen names - oh well...
The library still has free CDs - and you can then upload them for free. Same as buying music in electronic form and then downloading it.
And CDs in thrift stores are $1. Same as the price for downloads. Again, just the reverse process - buy the CD as the hard material and upload it, rather than buying the electronic version and downloading it.
And you can buy a CD with an entire album of music for less money than it would take you to download each song individually... but, I'm a dinosaur, and I digress...
I'm still listening to the music from my original post in 2009. I listen to a lot more blues and jazz and jam bands now though. Rock 'n' roll, despite the Who song, is truly dead. As is the music business. Rock 'n' roll is now Country, Blues, and Jam.
So to that end I'm listening to -
Samatha Fish Joe Bonamassa, as always Walter Trout Phish Gov't Mule Tedeschi-Trucks Screaming Cheetah Wheelies - best band that no one knows.
Some classic rock too...
Free Wishbone Ash Frampton (has a new blues album)
Old country / blues Bonnie Raitt Emmylou Harris
Oh and Greta Van Fleet might save Rock 'n' Roll...
And I just saw a new band with less than 200 FB likes at a festival. They're called Dr. Watermelon and they have some originals that are awesome, and they cover Stevie Wonder, the Dead, the Yardbirds, and Clapton, among others. Trying to figure out how to make them famous. My company owns a music venue in a major city, and I know a couple of people in the music business. But the music business is dead... so how do you get a recording contract these days? Don't know, but I'm going to try to find out...
I don't really listen to songs in the traditional sense. I prefer my music remixed... and mostly without lyrics. The music business isn't dead... we just don't get large companies controlling what we listen to anymore. Now artists can do it for themselves. Which is way, way better.
Been listening to mostly jazz lately, namely Vince Guaraldi, as per my avatar. But in the car right now...
Neil Diamond - Hot August Night
IMO, it's THE best live album ever made. It captures ND at a particular time in his career (1972) where he was just tasting some real success as an artist, but wasn't big enough to lap up all the acclaim and entertain solely off his name. His brand. No. Each track drips with passion, sung by an artist with something to prove - that he could deliver familiar choruses and catchy melodies on a different emotional level. On a level that deeply touched each person lucky enough to be there for the shows, and for each listener playing this all these years later. It's a masterpiece.
I don’t really own any CD’s anymore, I pretty much just use the Shazam-thingy app to detect a song I like and then download it from Apple Music or, whatever. Truthfully, I don’t really listen to music in my car anymore either, or really even drive my car for that matter… actually, I don’t really go outside much anymore either ‘cause I’m scared of Meth-heads, and they’ve made me a fuckin’ hermit.
But, I do have shitload of people over as of late - what else to do over the holidays but get rotten drunk and dance like everyone’s watching - and of course, we always dance under the neon kitchen lights to my fav Canadian band: “Metric”
