  1. Thank you Srider! Had a quiet and uneventful day after a stressful week. Thanks for thinking of me! I haven't been around much and just happened to log in today and saw your post. Hope all is well with you!
  2. Hi Strider! I still pop in every now and then to see what's happening, making a random post here and there when I think that I have something to contribute. Have a great Holiday and thanks for the shout out!
  3. Turned on the morning news, and was surprised to see ROBERT on the CBS morning show! He looked great! I loved his comment about cutting his hair when he is finished performing for good. Charlie Rose, Gail King, Nora O'Donnell as well as guest Mark Harmon were all in awe by his presence. Nothing new in the interview but it was great seeing him first thing in the morning. What a pleasant surprise. They may have the interview up on CBS's web site at some point. Thanks Robert for making my day!
  4. I saw The Who in Columbus on Feb. 17th, just a few days before this incident. Pete was very gracious and thanked the audience for selling out the place during a down economy. He did let loose a few "F Bombs" during his commentary at the end. Just typical Pete being Pete in my opinion. Roger pretty much lost his voice at my concert. We could not even hear some of the vocals on "Love, Reign O'er Me". Just looked like he was mouthing the words. They did not sing "Tea and Theater" at the end as Roger's voice was shot. The visuals were fantastic. The video of "The Ox" playing 5:15 was amazing! I loved how they included Entwistle and Moony in this performance of Quadrophenia. Overall, an excellent concert and I am so thankful to have been able to see the living members of The Who. (I believe that they still are to be called The Who, just like the living members should still be called Led Zeppelin, IMHO.) I also read Pete's autobiography. My opinion of it is that it is Pete's way of explaining his side of things for which he has gotten bad press for in the past, such as punching out members of the audience. I don't think that it revealed his true soul as much as did Eric Clapton's autobiography did. I thought it was just full of excuses for Pete's past and future (like the incident on Feb. 19th) behavior.
  5. I love the Rock Hall! I have been there many times, not in the past year, though. My favorite artifacts are the PAC 10 football players drawn by Jimi Hendrix when he was in school. They used to have an extensive Jimi Hendrix section. I don't know if it is still there, but I found it to be very insightful as to Jimi's character and personality. Years ago, they had on display the drawing of "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" made by Julian Lennon, from which John wrote the song. Also, they had some hand written letters from John to Julian, as well as hand written lyrics. One year they had a special Doors exhibit on one of the top floors. It included Jim Morrison's death certificate and the letter sent to his father informing him of Jim's death. It was very haunting to me. I also liked the ZZ Top display with the furry guitars and drums. If you ever get the opportunity, I think that visiting the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame would be an enjoyable experience for any rock fan. Near to Cleveland is Cedar Point, the nation's number one amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio. They have really fun Haunted weekends in the fall there. And in Canton, Ohio, which is not too far from Cleveland, there is the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Cleveland also has a great museum complex at University Circle, which includes a nice art museum. There are a lot of entertainment venues in Cleveland, such as The House of Blues, The Playhouse Theatre complex, as well as the Browns, Cavaliers, and indians stadia. There also is a very nice science museum near the Rock Hall. And no trip to Cleveland would be complete without a boat ride on Lake Erie. So there is lots to do.
  6. Now I get it. Sage, SAJ. Japan's flag? Can't make out the rest. Please explain.
  7. I just logged in for a look-see and was shocked to see what has been going on in this thread! I am so happy that Steve is back (miss the old avatar!). He is an invaluable source of info and I appreciate that he so generously shares it with us. It would be a tremendous loss to lose him as a member. Jalfin is also a valuable member, as is every other member on here who make regular posts. We can learn a lot from each other if we just give one another the respect that we all deserve and allow one to voice their views and ideas and share their info with us. It all boils down to respect. We may not all share the same opinions and world views, but each person has the right to express their opinions. We can respectfully disagree. There is no need to trash the messenger just because we don't like their message. Keep that in mind when a discussion gets heated up. That's how I see it. Thanks to all who regularly contribute to these forums. I enjoy reading all of your posts.
  8. Glückliche Geburtstag BUC 'EYE' DOC! Happy birthday to you! May you have a rocking CELEBRATION DAY my fellow Zeppelin fiend!

  9. Have a great time, Steve! I saw them in Columbus where Eric has a home and he played for his "American family". It was by far the best concert that I have ever attended.
  10. Yuk! I turned down tickets to the Ohio State vs. Akron football game today because it is so hot out and I would be sick from the heat. It is pushing 100 degrees outside. It has been so dry and hot this summer, and I don't like it. My oldest son's roomate's brother plays for Akron and he is having a great game. I would have loved to see him in person play in Ohio Stadium. He also played on the same high school football team with my sons. He was/is a great player but because their high school was so small, none of the really big colleges recruited him.
  11. I just saw the new X-Men movie, "X-Men First Class". I really liked it, even though this type of movie is usually not my cup of tea. Now I understand the characters of the earlier X-Men movies since I have been unfamiliar with the comics.
  12. Thanks for the birthday wishes!
