  1. LOL, what a thoughtful forum member you are, so very helpful ; )
  2. Seats close enough at Tom Jones for some panty throwing Strider? Ha, jk , don't answer that. He would be fun to see- has some great songs and what a voice. You had a great concert-going September too, I see. Don't you just love Sharon Jones? I have only seen her once, would love to see her again. Hope she's doing ok health-wise. So Patti Smith is doing some touring? Oooh, Chicago, and seats left. Have to think about that. Everyone have a great Rocktober! It's so fun to read about all these great adventures, cos it's just plain impossible to catch em all.
  3. Strider, in answer to your comment, Tegan and Sara were fun to see as always, great musicianship and entertaining quips to amuse the audience. They didn't play "The Cure" but did a great set that included "Walking With A Ghost", another favorite of mine. After reading about your EPIC August concert-going list, if your September is anything like that I can see why you might not be able to squeeze them in. Favorite Sept shows I saw were The Revolution, Summit Brewery Bash with Bob Mould etc, Festival Palomino with Trampled By Turtles, the Arcs, Andrew Bird etc, I may catch local gem Haley Bonar Sunday. October so far has Dinosaur Jr (yes!) and Margo Price lined up. May need to see a few more than that to called it a real Rocktober, ha.
  4. Tegan and Sara. I sure hope they play "The Cure" one of my favs of theirs.
  5. Keep revisiting some favorites from a couple years ago: Every Other Freckle by Alt J; Normal Person by Arcade Fire; First by Cold War Kids; After You by Chastity Brown.
  6. Tonight, the Wombats by invitation of a friend who says they are great. Hope so, as I'll miss the Black Lips who are in town tonight too, ouch.
  7. Still hard to accept that one of my favorite live bands is DONE. Such a bummer. Really glad I caught their last show in my town. Was a fantastic show and the room smelled sooo sweet with high quality weed, ha. Great night.
  8. I am officially jealous luvlz2. Seen him 3 times? Cool. I have been close, but something always came up. What Killed me last time is Jason was in my town the same night I already had tickets to see, um, the Kills! Since the Kills are one of my favorite bands touring now (they really rock out live and are so fun to watch) it was a very tough call. I have rarely wanted to be in two places at the same time as that night.
  9. What is such a shame is that by now the plaintiffs, their lawyer and his flunkees have through research and discovery read enough to realize their case has no merit, yet the money grubbers persist. Maybe in the beginning they truly thought there was a case for plagiarism. However, certainly by now they are fully aware of the history of many songs that use a similar structure (and in the case of Davy Graham's Cry Me a River, songs that sound even more like to STH than Taurus does) . All these comments about justice in the hands of a jury being a crapshoot at best are valid and worrisome. And easily explains why lawyers for the Plaintiffs keep on, knowing they could have a shot even with a horse crap case. They surely by now should know what they are doing to Led Zeppelin, and their reputation is wrong, and I hope that within two weeks they get what bad they flow out back at themselves
  10. We Led Zeppelin fans would all very much love to hear confirmation that the black beauty has been at long last returned to Jimmy. Then we can stop keeping our eyes peeled for it, ha ha. I'm sure I'm not the only one on this forum who has seen what looked like that same vintage Gibson model and thought, hmm, naw, it couldn't be, the chances of that...no. I was wondering who this Perry was that may have helped with the recovery, and read that he is a serious collector, someone who could spot the real thing if he saw it, and I'm assuming would be in the position where people offer to show him quality vintage guitars for purchase regularly. And incidentally, must have good taste since he helped with the recording of Paul Rodgers (who is one of my top 5 favorite musicians) Royal Sessions lp too.
  11. Bands saw & highly recommend: Catfish & the Bottlemen; Wolf Alice; The Waterboys. Have to say the Waterboys was one of the best concerts I've seen in recent memory: they were incredible--reminded me of LZ in the sense every musician playing was a master- just awesome. I'd say a don't miss! Coming up: Gear Daddies; Tame Impala. Oh, and I just saw Strider's April post on the Replacements: I think Chris Mars would very much disagree with the comment that he is dead. He is an artist, not an active musician-hardly the same thing as being dead ; )
  12. Whole Lotta Led & Madd Co tribute band concert. Should be interesting...only the second trib I've been to...going w/a Led Zep vet...I'm assuming I will hear complaints, ha. It will be funny, hopefully good!
  13. Man of Constant Sorrow- live by Blackberry Smoke--Hope they play it in concert tommorrow ; )
  14. See Catfish & the Bottlemen if they come near your town if you like some really GREAT rock. Good show from start to finish...play better than their years. Opener was really good and crowd loved them too. Saw them based on one recomendation and were glad had tics before they quickly sold out. This week: Blackberry Smoke ; may go to the Flaming Lips too.
  15. Was listening recently to a mix tape I recieved last year Valentine 2014. Some songs were no-surprise classics, Love Me Tender by Elvis Presley and Fever by Peggy Lee. Others were unexpected fun & some I hadn't ever heard before. Here's the list in case it would be fun for anyone to listen & see if they find a new song they like: 1.

  16. Catfish & the Bottlemen coming up; Still smarting after not going to Sleater-Kinney Lizzo opening. If tics come up for them in your neck of the woods, get them early!
  17. Ticket alert peeps of CA: Willie Nelson and Alison Krauss & Union Station-Ooh la la, what a bill!-- Show at the Greek July 18. Presale is Fri Feb 20 password:AIRPLANES
  18. Be My Friend by Paul Rodgers/Free Great but little-known love song...by one of the best singers & band--Paul Rodgers/Free/Bad Co-take your pick, should be in RRHOF!
  19. The Cure by Tegan and Sara - Spinner Interface live version
  20. Hope this isn't really THE end of the Crowes...one of the best live bands out there, glad I saw them last time they played through. They were awesome, had some majestic moments during their show leaving myself and a couple people around me saying Wow, WOW at the same time. Chris is touring now, can at least see him & his boys. Last time saw Rich was at the Jimi Hendrix Experience...good show recommend it...personal fav was the playing of Mato Nanji, crowd fav prob Kenny Wayne Sheppard. BTW Firm Fans: Tony Franklin played noticeably GREAT bass at the JHE show, came near me to talk to Eric Giles (who played great too, had never heard of him) and it was all I could do to not tap Tony's arm and beg him to see if he can lasso Jimmy into a Firm Reunion. Hey, if that gets James to play w/a band again...
  21. The Bodeans on the Letterman show '93 do Feed the Fire Rockin
  22. J Roddy Walston and the Business- album Essential Tremors
