  1. ^0 - Vile & Offensive - especially the lyric "I've missed your ginger hair".......but hang on a sec, three versions? oh yes, the Steve Winwood original! I prefer that.
  2. Agreed. Jimmy never "phoned in it" and as a result, he's always interesting to watch as he is right there in the moment putting everything into it. Take the Knebworth shows as an example; he is wringing with sweat from the sheer effort of trying to coax the riffs out of his Les Paul (or maybe it was the heroin, but still) did Clapton EVER sweat? I don't think so. Personally, I want to see the agony and ecstasy on the face of my guitar hero. I don't want to see them smugly hitting every note perfectly.
  3. Perhaps Jimmy is to guitar playing what Ayrton Senna was to formula one: an unpredictable, unorthodox genius, always pushing and constantly on the edge, moments from victory or seconds away from complete failure, not technically amazing but with amazing feel, risk takers - and sometimes it came off and sometimes it didn't...but it didn't stop them from trying. Not sure why that comparison came into my my mind...but there you go. But yes, Jimmy is definitely a "sloppy player" - of that there is no dispute.
  4. ^ The song reminded me a little of early Ash, perhaps. The melody was a tad generic, but still, I'd give it a 6. However, if I were rating the video, I'd give it a 12 out of 10 on the "awful 90's video-o-meter" that I created specifically for that video.
  5. I see what you're saying re: the 5th Dimension, and also, I was listening to a docu about Judee Sill the other day where Andy Partridge of XTC was talking about his love for her music, so. ^ I like The John Butler Trio but hadn't heard this song. Probably needs a few more listens....I'll give it a 7
  6. You have to admire how after the death of an irreplaceable member of the band they disbanded; refusing to carry on and shamelessly stay in the public eye any which way they could, be that via boy band collaborations, musicals with Ben Elton and touring with the runner up of American Idol. Not to mention the licensing of their music to countless adverts, and generally turning up to the opening of an envelope to talk about past glories and/or their latest collaboration/tour. Yes, I just love how they never sold out and are in no way an over saturated, overplayed karaoke band for the masses to sing along to at sporting events. Living in the U.K one hardly ever hears Queen on the radio or on the television, so thank you so much for a much needed thread to remind us of this notoriously media shy band's back catalogue.
  7. ^ Great artists. Song ruined by weak instrumentation/80's production values. 5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BO9IyLIOKGI
  8. Thanks. Ultimately, you can't copyright a chord progression, which is the case here. Would be very surprised if they (Spirit) win this case and if they do I should think it would open the floodgates and set a dangerous precedence.
  9. I did a vid a while back regarding how there are many songs that share a descending minor chord progression with Stairway...
  10. I think you're just adding extra caveats. Which is soooooo like Hitler. He was always doing that because he only had one testicle, apparently. "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1."[2][3] In other words, Godwin said that, given enough time, in any online discussion—regardless of topic or scope—someone inevitably makes a comparison to Hitler or the Nazis." But when the jury get back from their deliberation, I guess we'll find out.
  11. The thread (Conspiracy Theories not Nazi's and Hitler) is now discussing Nazi's and Hitler since redrum compared them to Aliens. Pretty sure that we weren't discussing Nazi's and Hitler before that point? or at least non making direct comparisons to. Though by all means feel free to quote me all the posts where we were.
  12. Never watching Four Weddings and a Funeral.
