  1. I posted a little about his earlier years and yes, he's from Ireland.
  2. Some Tasty info, Taste (originally "The Taste") was formed in Cork, Ireland in August 1966 as a trio consisting of Rory Gallagher on guitars & vocals, Eric Kitteringham on bass, and Norman Damery on drums. In their early years Taste toured in Hamburg and Ireland before becoming regulars at Maritime Hotel, an R&B club in Belfast, Northern Ireland. In 1968 Taste began performing in the UK where the original lineup split up. The new lineup formed with Richard McCracken on bass and John Wilson on drums. The new Taste moved permanently to London where they signed with the record label
  3. Rory !! Rory !! Rory !! Rory !! Rory !! How 'bout a little Taste ?
  4. Gosh, look at who else auditioned for the Stones after Mick Taylor split, The Stones used the recording sessions in Munich to audition replacements for Taylor. Guitarists as stylistically far-flung as Humble Pie lead Peter Frampton and ex-Yardbirds virtuoso Jeff Beck (I already mentioned him) were auditioned. Rory Gallagher and Shuggie Otis also dropped by the Munich sessions.
  5. In some ways I prefer the early Brian Jones period in the studio, whereas I prefer the Mick Taylor era for their live shows. I only like a little of the Ron Wood period.
  6. I'm praying you get your mouth fixed. I'm dying laughing, and need the praying too. It's the twirling that was driving you crazy, right? I can relate to you. I like some extended jams like the Mars Volta, but many of those 'hippie' bands you're talking about make me feel as crazy as you look. Please, go see a plastic surgeon. *Looks like Rock Action and I are on the same page, literally.
  7. I miss 'em too buddy, I miss 'em too. To keep in context, I miss 'em two.
  8. Nice ! I've got a great bootleg of Leon in concert in November of 1970. Fantastic soundboard recording! I've been lucky enough to see him twice, once in 1978 then again in '81. I only remember a few tunes from that '81 date. I OD'd on tequila...passed out.

  9. This gentleman with the pretty lady might be able to help you with matters of cleanliness.
  10. It's on 'Hillbilly Band' right now.... I'm gonna do a little chicken 'a picken !!
  11. That is the meaning of selfish, concerned with one's own self activity. However, Selflessness is the act of giving, sacrifice so to speak, in this case for the millions of fans who'd like to see the 3 J's with Robert do more music. That's what's too bad, the lack of selflessness. So it is.
  12. Jimmy ! Oh Jimmy ! Oh Jimmy-Jack when are you comin' back? Oh Jimmy-Jack.
  13. So Rory turned them down ? Wow... Jeff Beck also auditioned, I don't know if he turned down Mick and Co. or was rejected, I don't know if Jeff ever considered the Deep Purple camp. Following Exile, the Stones began to splinter in two, as Jagger concentrated on being a celebrity and Richards sank into drug addiction. The band remained popular throughout the '70s, but their critical support waned. Goats Head Soup, released in 1973, reached number one, as did 1974's It's Only Rock 'n' Roll, but neither record was particularly well received. Taylor left the band after It's Only Rock 'n'
  14. Sometimes the "Looking for a miracle" produces a cheap/free ticket for me, but really for the most part it's just that the shows I'm interested in aren't the big priced one's nowadays. I'm not in for most of these reunion gigs, my attractions are more intimate and often the special favors are my inroad. See, I stop and am friendly with many rockstars and it's worked to my benefit as friends. You may notice how I feel about approaching them in the "Rock Star stalking" thread. I've never been shunned away. I've worked in record stores, music distribution centers, been on the road with va
  15. Ok Buddy ! As one of Jeff Beck's songs, Head for Backstage Pass !! uhhh...I didn't quite mean it that way, but you get it I'm sure.
  16. ^ Excellent and right on the money Jahfin ^ It's ignorance AND indifference about the mp3's that are being embraced by the masses. Also, back in the 1970s, album prices were rising (up from ~ $3.99-$8.99 in my heyday of collecting, more than doubling). They didn't come down as purchasers of cd's expected those discs would come down. There are however many deals to get on new cd's and I've rarely paid full retail, generally no more than $12.99 and often, when first released $9.99 for new titles.
  17. I used 29 or 30 different CCR songs for that ramble tamble !
  18. Thanks for the information. Certainly since Linda's name includes McCartney not Eastman, the name credit was added after her marriage to Paul in March of 1969(unless she was a psychic). I see where her book "Sixties: Portrait of an Era" was published in 1993 and the Aerosmith autobiography in 1997. I wonder if she added that for her "Sixties" publication near the time of that book coming out or for the Aerosmith book. I just find it a curiosity since the photo had been taken about 2 1/2 years before she assumed the McCartney name.
