  2. The "Ring of Fire" also called the Circum-Pacific belt, is the zone of earthquakes surrounding the Pacific Ocean about 90% of the world's earthquakes occur there. The next most seismic region (5-6% of earthquakes) is the Alpide belt (extends from Mediterranean region, eastward through Turkey, Iran, and northern India. http://earthquake.usgs.gov/learn/facts.php
  3. All it will take is one HUGE landslide like one that happened on Molokai that sent a gigantic tsunami that DID inundate the entire West Coast eons ago. Hey, we take our chances but to not realize the inherent dangers of HIGHLY dangerous locales is boorish at best. Man can't ultimately control nature, nature only allows us.
  4. No, it's ANDY White. Alan White is a very fine drummer indeed, but had nothing to do with Love Me Do.
  5. I guess I could've been slammed by that Mack Truck barreling down the road today too, but luckily I saw it coming. Sure the New Zealand earthquake is personal to you for the reasons you mention. If I didn't see the news or read the internet I wouldn't know a thing about it. I wouldn't be affected in any way. So as you say that you stand by your previous comment to me, fine, I stand by mine too. I don't know those people and other than a cursory "oh that's sad", it's not part of 'my' world to be bothered. Oh and Aquamarine and ally, go tell those people in New Orleans who relied on the
  6. I'm realizing now that "Love Me Do" on the Past Master's cd release IS the Ringo version. So it's still a 50/50 chance that what you'll hear commonly is either Andy or Ringo's drumming.
  7. Yeah, the Ringo version WAS the first released as a single in the UK. But the subsequent releases on LP were all the Andy White versions, at least in the UK and the US. I'm not sure about the Australian releases on single vs. LP. And Pete Best's version wasn't ever released until the Anthology series of the mid 90s. It was never in legit circulation back in the day anywhere. The versions of Ringo's "Love Me Do" out now are all sourced from a pristine copy of a 45rpm vinyl record. The original tapes are out of pocket. Through time as the digital age became the norm, the versions you'
  8. I don't see anywhere in the title of the thread that this is "supposed to be about sympathy for the victims". It just mentions the fact of the earthquake. I'm not going to pretend to have personal sympathy for people I don't know. I said it was sad, but it comes with the territory. I'm not going to live in some crime infested area and not expect incidents. I'm not going to live in tornado alley and not expect cyclones. And I stand by my 'floodplain' remark. Man CAN control, to a point, floods but not completely. Nature will ultimately win out there as well as earthquake prone a
  9. Right in the rim of the "Ring of Fire". As unfortunate as it is, it's to be expected. It's like living in a flood plain, it's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when. You will be flooded. If you don't wanna get hit, stay out of the pit.
  10. ^ That's a iBadge of Honor in my book. I followed a similar path, except for the 'X' part. I never cared for amphetamines but had my rounds with them. It's great to have tasted the experiences many of our influences in music and life shared too. The lifestyle enlightens and gives creedence to observations one might have in that direction. Other's can only speculate from the outside. Right On Strider !
  11. I'll continue to lament the gradual disappearance of physical media but at least this is a bright spot for download futures. __ Apple in talks to improve sound quality of music downloads__ At the HP event, Iovine summed up his mission and the purpose of this industry initiative.__ "What we're trying to do here is fix the degradation of music that the digital revolution has caused," he said. "It's one thing to have music stolen through the ease of digital processing. But it's another thing to destroy the quality of it. And that's what's happening on a massive scale."__ ht
  12. ^ Right On Brotha's and Sista's ! Here's a line from a reviewer, Some of the Funk is meandering and almost meaningless...like background music on a porno flick from the seventies and eighties. Oh, y'all don't look at porn???? You're missing some GOOD music (LMBAO!!!!) . I go to the hoe-house to check out the piano playa...LOL!!!! < Laugh my BLACK ass off !!
  13. No, he did however play on PS I love you, the B-side to Love Me Do. Those are the only two he did play on.
  14. Actually Ringo WAS permanent then. The first version recorded on Sept 4, 1962 was Ringo on drums and George Martin wasn't comfortable with, to him, and unproven drummer. The version of Love Me Do that's played MOST of the time was recorded on Sept. 11, one week later with Andy. To listen to both, Andy's version really isn't superior, but that's the one used.
  15. The Cars were a fun band in the late 70s, but to mention Journey in anything but THE WORST bands, IS a joke ! Neal Schon had his day with Santana before Journey and was a great guitarist, but the band was pure ballady schlock ! Steve Perry can suck one.
  16. Matter of fact, that version of Love Me Do posted is Andy White on drums, NOT Ringo. Sorry Silver Rider and the rest.
  17. Do all of you know which version of 'Love Me Do' you're listening to?_ Ringo DOES NOT play on most version's you hear, that's a session drummer, Andy White. I'd bet the farm that at least half of you heralding Ringo are actually hearing Andy White. If the version you're listening to has a tambouring, well that's Ringo on it and Andy on the drums. Ringo plays on the version without a tambourine in it._ After saying that, I LOVE Ringo. The Beatles had EXACTLY who and what they needed for their band. And as a poster mentioned, if this poll meant the most technical drummers, they're be
  18. TNWT....People reproducing more than just themselves. 2 kids per couple, and NO MORE if you remarry. ZERO POPULATION GROWTH._ This means YOU._ Not JUST third world countries but here in the U.S. too! http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20110220/ts_afp/scienceuspopulationfood
  19. Yeah, I've got a live bootleg from that time period that covers many of those tunes. I've just ordered WBC at my local library._ It will be mine, YES !!!
  20. Oh good Gawd ! Only a couple more weeks till the yearly roundup is complete.
  21. That video is just some fanmade thing. The Beatles aren't even performing Helter Skelter it's random snippets from other songs, occasionally synched up to look like they're playing it. As much as I love The Beatles, that's a lousy video. But the point is made glaringly clear about they're easy listening demeanor.
  22. I've got everything but "White Blood Cells". Do I need to round out my collection?
  23. Nails in the coffin._ I've been thinking about these online music storage 'clouds' and the online streaming music services such as Pandora. Mind you, I'm not interested in acquiring these myself, the streaming that is, but just how it's adding fuel to the downgrade of sound quality._ Here's a paragraph from a New Yorker article,_ The most popular alternative to the broadcast model is “on demand,” which usually charges a subscription fee in return for the ability to choose exactly which song you’d like to hear. In Europe, the most prominent such service is Spotify, a Swedish comp
