  1. I believe John Paul Jones ran his Bass through a Leslie cabinet on Heartbreaker.. Different effect.. Huge sound.
  2. "The members of the band KANSAS, past and present, wish to express our deepest sorrow over the death of our bandmate and friend, Robby Steinhardt. Robby will always be in our souls, in our minds, and in our music. What he brought to us as bandmates, to the fans who attended our concerts, and to the sound of KANSAS, will always be heartfelt. We love him and will miss him always." KANSAS
  3. Thanks Walter! I appreciate it. Nice to see you as well.
  4. Absolutely Walter.. I could have gone on the rest of the night .. there's so many
  5. ok 30 movies that most American's have seen.. yeah I know some are already mentioned..that's why I went with 30 .. King Kong (1933) Jaws Close Encounters of The 3rd Kind Rocky E.T. Ben Hur Star Wars Episode 4 Psycho Jurassic Park It's A Wonderful Life Planet Of The Apes (1968) Batman (1989) Mean Girls (Daughter's idea) Fargo Animal House National Lampoon's Vacation Wizard Of Oz Ghost The Shining Godzilla (1956) The Sound Of Music Mary Poppins The Lion King Toy Story Forrest Gump Frankenstein (1931) Dracula (1931) The Godfather Back To The Future Willie Wonka And The Chocolate Factory
  6. Now how cool is that.. Jimmy and Chris Slade had both worked with Tom Jones at one point or another..
  7. Looks like that's correct. It was changed for CD releases from traditional to Anne Bredon. When I looked up the Joan Baez In Concert release, It listed Anne Bredon as the writer.
  8. All the ones mentioned already... But especially Friends into Celebration Day is pretty awesome.. and as mentioned all from an accident. Studio pros at their best. On the 4 CD Boxed set, there was a cool transition from the Bonzo's Montreaux / Moby Dick remix right into I'm Gonna Crawl. On the Walking into Clarksdale tour, they went from How Many More Times (the descending part right before "Oh Rosey") into What Is and What Should Never Be. perfect transition..I know it says Studio but this really stood out...
  9. Joan Baez gave Ann Bredon credit for BIGLY .. so she was in the clear. The Small Faces did not give Willie Dixon credit.
  10. I don't think anybody said "only made it because of Dave" ... I know I didn't. His drumming certainly made them more commercial. Right Drummer for the band. all of the above.. No doubt Kurt Cobain was a genius songwriter. Butch Vig is an excellent Producer. Nirvana were the Alterna-rock culture change. They were the spearhead.. And Dave Grohl's drumming added a lot of memorable catchy licks to the songs..
  11. Queens Of The Stone Age's - Songs For The Deaf - has some amazing drumming. Dave Grohl has a writing credit with Nirvana for Scentless Apprentice - Track 2 on In Utero. He wrote the main riff, which follows the drum pattern exactly. It's one of my favorite Nirvana songs.. It's very similar to his playing with QOTSA and TCV. His drumming in Nirvana was direct, simple, powerful, memorable and distinctive ...which was perfect for the band.. I agree with BobDobbs that he made Nirvana more commercial and successful. Overrated? I wouldn't compare him to Vinny Colaiuta or Gavin Harrison, but he's great drummer in his own right. Overexposed? Definitely.
  12. Dave was probably asked to write the forward.. What was he supposed to do, say no? Word gets out he refuses to write the forward to a John Bonham Biography would get him much more criticism than he's getting for writing it.. I'm sure Dave was honored to write the forward, so more power to him. I'm also a little sick of seeing both Dave and especially Taylor Hawkins everywhere.. But it's a different time.. And it is kind of cool to see 2 very good drummers getting some of the spotlight. But yeah too much Dave and Taylor.. but again.. Should they say no...? The only thing that bothers me is so called Neil Peart fanatics like Taylor (and Jack Black) who keep calling him Neil Pert.. How hard is it to pronounce your heroes name correctly... Also, if you want to title your book with a nickname that everyone associates with John Bonham ... simply call it BONZO.. Almost nobody knows him as The Beast or Beast.. Sensationalist title.. It could be a great read, but that title pretty quickly brings back Hammer Of The Gods flashbacks..
  13. I'm sorry RainbowElf... I just saw this. it was pretty incredible. Bill Ward was still in the band. He left the tour a week or 2 after this show. I was already a major Dio fan for about 2-3 years at this point. It was my first time seeing Black Sabbath too. I didn't see the original band until Ozzfest 1999. It was also originally a Blue Oyster Cult show we had tickets for. About a week before the scheduled date, the concert was pushed back a day and Black Sabbath were added. They both had the same Manager at the time, Sandy Pearlman. Bill Ward seemed a little out of it, but listening back to some of it now, he sounds quite good. Blue Oyster Cult were super tight and went on last. This show was recorded and Broadcasted by The King Bisquit Flower Hour which explains why there are a professional recording.
  14. Rest In Peace the beautiful and talented Actress Cloris Leachman aged 94 She could play anything ... The Last Picture Show Young Frankenstein Mary Tyler Moore Show Phyllis High Anxiety
  15. number 10... mixed emotions but 10th Superbowl... Congratulations Tampa Bay and Tom Brady fans..
  16. Thanks Rick. We're doing well .. Hope you and yours are well too.. I haven't posted much lately, but I do check in. Josh Allen is the real deal. Great QB's are hard to find. And I do think Coach Belichick will be back next year.. No way he'll go out like this..
  17. You waited over 2 decades to gloat Rick ...well for a reason to gloat... Every year it was wait till next year.. Well next year is finally here.. So enjoy it ... Your Bills look pretty damn good. But I would wait until they really win something before I get too carried away... you know.. like The Super Bowl.. They won the AFC East and all the Bills fans I know are acting like they won it all.. If the Bills win it all this year (like New England did 6 times in case you forgot) I'll be the first to congratulate you. I won't try to rain on your parade.. like you tried to year after year. Bad year for New England, no Brady, 8 Covid opt outs and an injured Edelman.. But let's see what happens.. next year.. Sounds familiar doesn't it ...
  18. Rest In Peace Celtics great Tommy Heinsohn. Nobody bled more green than Tommy. Celtics Statement on Tommy Heinsohn's Passing By Boston Celtics | @Celtics Celtics.com November 10, 2020 It’s hard to imagine the Boston Celtics without Tommy Heinsohn. There isn’t a generation of Celtics fans for whom Tommy’s presence hasn’t been felt. He is the only person to be an active participant in each of the Celtics’ 17 World Championships, an extraordinary and singular legacy. His career with the Celtics had an auspicious start, as he earned NBA Rookie of the Year honors in 1957. Even more notably, he was the best player on the floor in the decisive Game 7 of that season’s NBA Finals against the St. Louis Hawks, leading the team with 39 points and 23 rebounds as the Celtics delivered their first championship banner. Dominant performances and championships were no mere opening act; they would come to define his NBA playing career (1956-65), in which he was named to six All-Star teams and won eight NBA Championships, the team’s leading scorer for four of those title runs. Red Auerbach named Tommy the team’s Head Coach in 1969. Like his playing career, Heinsohn's coaching tenure was punctuated by prosperity, as he directed the 1974 and 1976 squads to World Championships, won five Atlantic Division crowns, and was picked the league's Coach of the Year in 1973 during which he won a team record 68 games. Tommy was honored on multiple occasions as a player, a coach, and a broadcaster. Among those honors, his number 15 was retired by the Celtics in 1965, and he was inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame as a player in 1986, and then as a coach in 2015. He is one of just four people to be inducted as both a Player and Coach, joining former teammate Bill Sharman, John Wooden and Lenny Wilkens. For all of his accomplishments as a player, coach, and broadcaster, it is Tommy’s rich personality that defined the man. A loving father, grandfather, and husband. A talented painter and a lively golf partner. Unofficial mentor to decades of Celtics coaches and players. A frequent constructive critic of referees. Originator of the most “Celtic stat” of them all, The Tommy Point. And a boundless love for all things Boston Celtics, a passion which he shared with fans over 64 years. We take this time to celebrate his life and legacy, and to share in the sorrow of his passing with his family, friends, and fans. As long as there are the Boston Celtics, Tommy’s spirit will remain alive. STATEMENT FROM WYC GROUSBECK, STEVE PAGLIUCA AND THE BOSTON CELTICS OWNERSHIP GROUP This is a devastating loss. Tommy was the ultimate Celtic. For the past 18 years, our ownership group has relied hugely on Tommy’s advice and insights and have reveled in his hundreds of stories about Red Auerbach, Bill Russell, and how the Celtics became a dynasty. He will be remembered forever.
