  1. I'm not sure how to interpret your post, particularly the first paragraph. Are you saying everybody other than the three mentioned are insufferable indie elitist's?
  2. My bad! Sorry about that. I can see how some might find that picture disturbing.
  3. Three legends from the 60's and 70's. The first two should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In fact, they should kick out a couple of current members and put Leon and Harry in. Harry Nilsson - Buy Nilsson Schmilsson. Contains the hits "Without You", "Coconut" and "Jump into the Fire". Or, if you can find the two CD retrospective, buy it. Or buy a greatest hits. Leon Russell - Carney is a good starting point. Contains the hits, "Tightrope", "Queen of the Roller Derby" plus a couple others you might even know. Or, If you can find the two CD retrospective, buy it. Or buy a greatest hits. Badfinger - The original power pop band!! Buy the remastered version of Straight Up with bonus tracks. Contains a couple of big hits "Day After Day" and "Baby Blue". What an incredible collection. 3 out of the 4 members are dead, two via suicide. If you must, buy a greatest hits collection.
  4. Robert is a sex machine. If I could only spend one night with him.
  5. I'm 52. Back in the late 60's, early 70's you couldn't help being aware of LZ. The music was on the radio AM/FM. During high school from 69-73, my very good friend was a LZ fan, I was always more into Tull. Once we were able to drive, we would drive around during the weekend (heck even during the school week) and listen to Jethro Tull, Sabbath, the Who, LZ, The Carpenters, Deep Purple and Alice Cooper. It was all the popular stuff. In retrospect I wish we could have listened to some lesser known stuff like the MC5, Iggy and the Stooges and The Flamin' Groovies, music I began to appreciate during my college years.
  6. Oh yeah, that's big complaint amongst hardcore Tull fans. The same few songs over and over on FM radio. If you are in an adventurous mood or know somebody who owns Tull's Benefit released in 1970, give it a try. Get the recently remastered version with the bonus tracks. Great electric guitar, plus some good acoustic stuff.
  7. Who is the resident LZ song analyst here? I was listening to this song today and would love to know what the lyrics mean. Thanks
  8. About 100 years ago I saw the legendary Doors cover band Crystal Ship. Hey speaking of tribute bands has anybody ever seen or heard of Lez Zeppelin? http://www.lezzeppelin.com/
  9. Around 1996, I was invited to attend a Pearl Jam concert at Downing Stadium, Randalls Island, New York. I just kinda went for the hell of it. It was a short tour. Tickets for this particular PJ tour were very difficult to obtain and I think it was in the middle of their political stance against Ticketmaster. First of all, the venue sucked. Really uncomfortable and a pain to drive into and out of. You had to park your car in a muddy field. I would rather pay the service fees, etc for a decent venue. Anyway, the second act was an unknown Ben Harper. I love slide guitars, bottleneck and all that type of stuff and Ben wailed. NOW he is pretty well known. He also played a Zeppelin song that night, I can't remember the name of the song. Maybe Whole Lotta Love.
  10. Let's see 1978 at The Capitol Theater in Passaic, NJ. Be Bop Deluxe headlined, second up was Styx. I was there to see the openers, The Dictators, although I also liked Be Bop Deluxe. I remember that lead guitar player in Styx with the long shag posing and primping on stage, I wanted to kick him. Also, early 1973 at the Palladium (formerly the Academy of Music) in NYC. Uriah Heep headling, Elf (Dio on lead vocals) and openers Manfred Man. I think (or at least I was told) all the members of Elf were like 5'2" or shorter.
  11. Too bad New Orleans didn't have flood control
  12. Thanks for that!! I think in 40 years of touring Tull has cancelled only a handful of shows. "Yes", the concert lineups back then were awesome. I'm going to start a new topic to discuss.
  13. Thanks, I've enjoyed reading all your posts!!
  14. Check out YOUTUBE and you will find some Mick clips. Mick wasn't in the band too long. Did you know Tony Iommi was in Jethro Tull for about one week in December 1968? His one appearance was at the Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus on "A Song For Jeffrey". The song was mimed.
  15. Oh, Barrie(his real name) was behind Hansens Eyebrow's by The Turnstiles, voted Best World Cup Song on the BBC Website by the People. Check it out.... http://www.myspace.com/HANSENSEYEBROWS

    Muscle Cars

    Back in the day, I owned a 1967 Buick GS400 similar to the one shown here. And remember, what happened in the 1967 Buick GS400, stayed in the 1967 Buick GS400.
  17. I'm November 8th, along with Bonnie Rait, Jack Osbourne, Leif Garrett and Patti Page. I win!!
  18. If you are talking about the 70's (especially 1970 -1975ish) I think the real question should be Zep vs. Jethro Tull!! Both bands were gigantic. Although Tull has remained active (including a 40 year anniversary tour for 2008), they haven't maintained the reputation like Zeppelin has. Tull and Zep were part of the second British invasion and were worthy of comparison. The Stones were part of the first British invasion and IMHO not as much fun to compare against the others. All three bands were gigantic in the early 70's.
  19. Jethro Tull Badfinger Springsteen The Dictators Nick Lowe The Ramones The Kinks
  20. Yes, thanks Joelmon and JRich for letting me know about the timeline. A high school buddy misled me recently saying "he and a group saw Zeppelin in August of 73 at MSG." I knew my show was July 73. BTW, that timeline is very slick, all sorts of ways of getting show info. My family used to vacation at the NJ shore, Asbury Park. We must have been there in August 1969, when I was 14 years old because I remember all these long haired freaks (for lack of a better word) hanging out on the boardwalk near Convention Hall. I also noticed the band playing that night on the marquee - Led Zeppelin. I was a young innocent kid at the time.
  21. What It Is - The Dictators

    Acoustic Guitars

    I own and play a Guild D40 acoustic. Purchased around 1978. I would start off with lessons, but supplement them with books, DVD, etc. Even group lessons if they are available. I think the most important thing is to find people to play/practice with. Some simple concepts go a long way on the guitar, but you need to be determined to get though whatever difficulties you may experience getting your fingers used to a new way to work. blah, blah, blah.
  23. Speaking of Derek and the Dominoes....
