  1. That's a quote that holds true in my experience, as mentioned before. Their music is great and the visuals captivating and imaginative, but the band members don't have stage presence. And that's ok. But it's true, they just play their music, which was great. I've gone to plenty of concerts where the musicians were so absorbed in their music and had NO light show/effects and those concerts were great too, for the music. And that's the bottom line for me. Other effects are just superfluous and not necessary to "support" the music.
  2. In the spirit of BigStickBonzo's "caaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrr bombs away" drink, Since green is the color of the day, and inebriation is the condition sought, I have an offering "Let's Roll !!!"
  3. Hooverphonic - A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular No, they aren't playing vacuum cleaners.
  4. That's absolutely right. Their music was good in concert and their props, lights and effects but the band themselves were stoic and weren't much for watching. I don't think they had the props to hide that, but they had the props expressedly FOR the visual entertainment. They realized people wanted the psychedelic trippy effects as they stood there and played their instruments. And yes, I did see Pink Floyd so I'm talking from that experience.

    I loved it when Dan Aykroyd hosted Bad Theater on Saturday Night Live back in the 70's. That was my favorite theater. And when that atrocious violin player would come up to a couple at those fancy restaurants and play horribly for them. And now for your musical entertainment pleasure. NOT !
  6. Hotel Yorba - The White Stripes From some live show about 5 years ago.
  7. I agree. That whole album is very good. Monkberry Moon Delight, Admiral Halsey and Smile Away are my favorites. I also like his first solo album simply named "McCartney", "Band on the Run" and the live Wings album from the mid 1970's. And this one is one of his better ones too. He does a combination of solo and Beatle songs on it.
  8. Whenever I listen to The Rolling Stones "You Can't Always Get What You Want" I think of Jimmy Page. I know Mick must have been singing about their producer Jimmy Miller, but I think of Jimmy Page. A part of the song, You can't always get what you want You can't always get what you want You can't always get what you want But if you try sometimes well you just might find You get what you need Oh baby, yeah, yeah! I went down to the Chelsea drugstore To get your prescription filled I was standing in line with Mr. Jimmy And man, did he look pretty ill We decided that we would have a soda My favorite flavor, cherry red I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy Yeah, and he said one word to me, and that was "dead" I said to him You can't always get what you want, no! You can't always get what you want (tell ya baby) You can't always get what you want (no) But if you try sometimes you just might find You get what you need Oh yes! Woo!
  9. This is a 10 minute video from their second film, "Next Movie". It's all hilarious, but the last 2 minutes are the funniest 2 mins. of all the Cheech and Chong movies I've ever scene!
  10. These are tracks left as a rover backed out from the rim of a crater on Mars. It's not that impressive till you realize it's on Mars.
