    Lemmy On Hip-Hop

    There is some bluesy rap songs. But my personal opinion is rap evolved out of mixing black, urban street poetry and... Disco. Rapper's Delight is considered one of the first rap songs. The beat is very Disco oriented.

    Lemmy On Hip-Hop

    Lemmy's problem is his acknowledging the shitty rap that is on the radio. They use one sample and it's mediocre. Good rap artists (mostly the groups) use a collage of samples and manage to create something new. On Public Enemy's "Fear of a Black Planet" (one of my all time favorite albums) there are over 120 samples on 15 out of 20 tracks to create these sonic murals over the raping. It's infinitely, better than the sampling the Beastie Boys used on the overrated "Licensed to Ill", where it was a drum beat and a guitar riff. And even then, Beastie Boys next album "Paul's Boutique" uses over 100 samples. Also, there are some rap bands, like The Roots, that use a full band and create their own beats. And they're had horn sections and current feature a sousaphone player (which makes for some awesome bass). How many rock bands can say that?! Same for the Beastie Boys as well. They all play instruments (they started off as a punk rock band) and my personal favorite album "Check Your Head", features them playing their own instruments on many of the tracks, seasoned with a few samples as well. I'll use the Beastie Boys as a prime example. You can hear the difference between crappy sampling, dynamic sampling and playing their own instruments. Crappy Sampling (The stuff Lemmy is complaining about) Dynamic Sampling (Wouldn't be terribly out of place on the Beatles' "Love" album) Playing Their Own Instruments (With a few samples thrown in)

    The Band thread

    Right after Neil Young, these guys were the best music Canada ever produced. Sorry Rush fans...

Carmine Appice (The man is an amazing drummer and even more amazing person) Mitch Mitchell (Just imagine how good Jimi Hendrix had to be to outshine this guy!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HS01e0ogmEc Art Blakey (Appropriatly titled "Drum Thunder Suite" for a reason...)

    Top 10 Rock Bands of All Time

    1. Harder rock does not equal evolving taste in music. Look at the majority of death metal bands... would you call that evolving taste? 2. Talent is a good thing, but its not as valuable as people think. Bob Dylan doesn't play guitar or sing at a level above and beyond an average Joe with some music lessons. But he's one of the most influential and best known artists in history. Conversely, Asia was a supergroup with some the most talented musicians in rock music. Would anyone accuse them of being good? 3. Robert Plant has some great individual vocals, and that is unchallenged. But it pales in comparison to the complexity and talent for the Beatles to pull off their harmonies.

    Current music recommendations

    If anyone likes rap/is at least open to it or is a fan of the Black Keys... you should check out the Blakroc album. Give it a chance. It's one of the albums that helped me get over my distaste for rap. There is good rap and the crap you hear on the radio. This is the good stuff. I promise.

    Top 10 Rock Bands of All Time

    I was confused. I saw Motley Crue on the list and figured it was a worst of all time list.

    Why cant Zeppelin music be played more frequently on the radio?

    It would help if the radio stations I was near played anything other than Stairway to Heaven, Kashmir and Fool in the Rain on a regular basis. There are 80+ songs and live cuts too......

    CHICKENFOOT Update

    Personally, I'm more interested in the other, far superior, bird-themed supergroup formed in 2009. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vF8Hug8ISMQ

    The Beach Boys Thread

    I searched for a thread on these guys and I did not see one. And frankly, I was shocked. They are one of the greatest bands of all time, and probably the best band America ever gave to the world. The relationship between Brian Wilson and Lennon/McCartney always interested me. The greatest song writers of all time. Watching each band release albums that would be considered all time greats and seeing them manage on one-up each other. You can only imagine if SMiLE had become the album Brian Wilson dreamed it to be. And, speaking of SMiLE, I think we can all agree Brian Wilson has one of the most tragic stories in music (without actually dying) Anyway, this is just a general thread to talk about an all time great band. Probably the single most beautiful piece of music I've ever heard in my life.
