    Best live version of The Rain Song

    Agreed! This whole gig is great. But it just makes me think "Where are the fucking soundboards for these shows just prior to MSG?" You know they have to exist. Boston, Baltimore, Pittsburg...c'mon, what the hell man...who's hoarding these?

    What show or live song are you listening to now?

    The Song Remains the Same from Landover 2/10/75, the soundboard recording. Killer version. John Paul Jones is insane on this. Might be my new favorite version. Didn't see it on you tube

    The Sleep Topic (or the Topic of Sleep)

    Hadn't seen this thread before, this is a topic I should definitely join in on - because I don't sleep. I'm telling you, I have the worst insomnia of anyone you've ever met. If you could promise me two hours of sleep a night, I would take it in a heartbeat, that would be wonderful to me. I get maybe ten minutes a week. Yes I'm tired all the time. I don't want to get addicted to drugs, especially since most of them have "suicidal thoughts" as a side effect! And yes I've tried everything else. I'm surprised I'm still alive. I know people think I'm exaggerating. I wish I was. That switch in my brain that goes from conscious to unconscious is broken. I can't even remember what it feels like to have sleep tugging at your eyelids. Been like this for twenty years now. So..that's my story. The hard thing is what it does to your mood, I'm try not to react too quickly to things, knowing I may say something I'll regret. It's hard, but I soldier on the best I can, trying this, trying that, all with no luck. I've gotten sort of used to it by now, still hoping for some miracle solution. Any other serious insomniacs out there?

    Golf Talk

    I was surprised Dustin Johnson let the lead slip away. I mean, I know the course was brutal but this is a guy who rarely gives up that lead once he's got it, he's very Tiger-like that way. It almost looked like Patrick Reed was gonna win his second major of the year for a minute there. If Dustin had won maybe we'd have gotten another controversial shot of lovely Paulina Gretzky sashaying up the stairs again, right? Haha. Anyway, congrats to Koepka
  9. Yes, agree about the Barney Hoskyns book, that's the best one

    Nice! "carefully annotated"; so they all had a hand in writing captions for the pictures, which is what I was hoping for. Good to see the fellas all together!

    Rare video footage on YouTube 75/77

    I had an 8mm camera growing up, those little reels last about three minutes. If you wanted to film a whole show you'd need a shopping cart full of film!

    Random Thoughts v.3

    File this under "here we go again". I have a friend who's saying he saw Led Zeppelin at the Forum in '71 and CCR OPENED THE SHOW. I tried to tell him he's mistaken, but he just doubled down "Nope, they had an opening act that night" Sigh.
