  1. I'm always a little amused at fouls in basketball. Some guy winds up flat on his back on the floor, and HE gets charged with fouling! I mean, I get the rules and all that, but it just looks so wrong, lol! Shaq was famous for elbowing players especially during his layups. He was just so big that he was knocking people left and right and most times got away with it.
  2. All I can say to most of those is.....WHAT THE.....
  3. Does Neil Young and Crazy Horse fit in here anywhere? To me, THAT is grunge and I freakin love it! I guess NY&CH are sort of California grunge, maybe... I totally agree that Page and Cornell could have been pretty amazing.
  4. Dylan was bootlegged extensively for much of his career. The Greatful Dead used to allow concert goers to record their shows, so there should be lots of them.
  5. What an astonishingly good album. RIP Greg. Thanks for the awesome music
  6. Greg Allman....what a talent. Maybe he and Duane are jamming again ... RIP Greg. And thanks for the ride.
  7. And clearly remains deferential to him to this day.
  8. Very sad for sure. The video and another of emergency communications (police and fire) is on Youtube. I cannot imagine what the first EMTs on the scene thought when they saw the building fully involved....really amazing people doing really bad jobs.... It is just shocking how fast the place went up. And allegedly, when it was just getting started, some fans tried to go out the rear exit and a bouncer stopped them and said "this door is only for the band". Maybe he didn't realize how fast the place would burn down either.
  9. I admire your confidence, but I thought Corey Dillon would be a huge mistake and instead he bought into the system and got a SB ring for his efforts. Won't know about Gilmore until the season starts.
  10. Belechik is no prize when it comes to the draft, many of his drafts have been less than stellar. Where he does excel is in picking up undrafted and "toss away" players that other teams have got tired of. I think he likes what he sees in Gilmore, and Gilmore realizes that this is a chance for a championship, so buckle down, listen up and pay attention, and do what we tell you. We'll see! It didn't work out too good when they took Haynesworth....
  11. "I've seen the Exorcist about 167 times...and it just keeps getting funnier and funnier every time I see it! Not to mention the fact you're talking to a dead whadda you think I'm qualified???"
  12. For the REALLY desperate among the looking:
  13. Bong-man, that's quite an undertaking! I find most of his Wings work quite listenable. As for Lennon and Double Fantasy, I honestly think if he hadn't been killed shortly after its release, it would have to be viewed as one of the most disastrous releases by a major artist in years. A complete piece of unmitigated dripping crap, honestly, it is hard to imagine an album by anyone that is worse than Double Fantasy. Well, maybe Milk and Honey comes pretty close.
  14. No one??
  15. Face Dances: man Another Tricky Day for me is one of their best. And Did You Steal My Money is pretty good too. Face Dances all around was pretty good.
  16. I was totally unaware that Plant and Johnstone had a falling out...any media on it? I just wish Page had said something along the lines of "during my career I've worked with many musicians, and David was another that I worked with" or something....instead it's like "oh jeez, I better be careful what I say around Robert or he will walk".
  17. So RP doesn't think much of Phil Johnstone, is that what he is saying? this may come across as harsh, but my God is Page a pussy when it comes to defending someone like Coverdale, when it might offend Plant.
  18. Huge loss..... The duckwalk, and that inspired playing that was a cross of country and hard blues, like nothing before. RIP Mr Berry
  19. When we talk about the activity after the LZ disbanding, don't forget XYZ. How quickly Page jumped right back in, didn't some of the rehearsals take place in 1980, so only a few months after Bonzo passing?
  20. I've often wondered just how proactive JP was. His first choice was Terry Reid, who says "can't do it, but check out this chap in Band of Joy", Page goes to see him and says OK. Wait, this is a big deal, you're forming a band and the expectations are pretty big...wouldn't you want to check out a few more vocalists while you're at it? It's not gonna hurt anything to listen to a few more.... Then RP says "take Bonzo as the drummer". Again, a complete unknown, and you check out no one else. Not very proactive. Admittedly, it all worked out smashingly, but IMO Page seems the type to be led to decisions, not set out to make them.
  21. Def a shocker. RIP Jason.
  22. Man you speak a whole different language, lol! I am guessing that punters are people who are looking for a cheap deal, wankers are bad people, to nick someone is to undercut their price, pitches are tents, and bob is a form of currency!
  23. Forgive me for asking, but what is a "car boot sale"?
  24. Three great tracks that showed Zep was doing great stuff at Polar Studios.
  25. That's The Way Tangerine The Rain Song bores me silly, but that's just me
