  1. I'm biding my time until the Dark Knight. It will be the biggest movie this summer.
  2. Clapton also had another auction in 2004 where blackie, the red 335, and Stevie Ray Vaughan's Lenny guitar were sold. Blackie became the the most expensive electric guitar ever, pulling in like 900,000 by Guitar Center. Lenny was bought for like 600,000.
  3. I'm sure between him and Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, they have quite a few. Billy's known to have a huge collection, many of them very exotic.
  4. I like the fact that Black Stone Cherry is very Southern sounding while being hard rock. Definitely a cool mixture. And I'm not into the "heavier" stuff, but they're really good.
  5. No. They have two albums out that are very good. The show I saw them at they played mostly new songs from their recent album Colorblind, including their semi-hit Ain't Nothing Wrong With That. Now, they've been known to pull out Billie Jean and some really cool covers, but they've built up enough material that they're not a cover band. As a matter of fact, here's their discography. Definitely worth checking out: 2002 - Live At The Wetlands http://www.amazon.com/Live-Wetlands-Robert...1662&sr=8-3 1 Ted's Jam 2 The March 3 Pressing My Way 4 Shake Your Hips 5 I Don't Know What You Come To Do 6 Tears Of Joy 2003 - Unclassified http://www.amazon.com/Unclassified-Robert-...pd_bxgy_m_img_b 1 Going In The Right Direction 2 I Need More Love 3 Nobody 4 Soul Refreshing 5 Squeeze 6 Smile 7 Good Times (3 Stroke) 8 Why Should I Feel Lonely 9 Calypso 10 Problems 11 Run For Your Life 2006 - Colorblind http://www.amazon.com/Colorblind-Robert-Ra...=pd_sim_m_img_1 1 Ain't Nothing Wrong With That 2 Deliver Me 3 Diane 4 Angels 5 Jesus Is Just Alright (f/ Eric Clapton) 6 Stronger (f/ Leela James) 7 Thrill Of It 8 Blessed 9 Love Is The Only Way (f/ Dave Matthews) 10 Thankful N' Thoughtful 11 Homecoming
  6. I guess I'll put some videos up for the other bands besides Foo Fighters: Black Stone Cherry - Lonely Train http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYa0jPzTLJc Robert Randolph & The Family Band - I Need More Love Live On Letterman Los Lonely Boys - Roses

  8. That's still no reason to hate on Allison Krauss. She's an innocent bystander in this. But what the hell do I know.
  9. Allison Krauss is one of the most respected artists in country and bluegrass music. She has an amazing voice and is a great violin player. Her band is a top-notch band, one of the best in the business. In fact, it was her guitar player, Dan Tyminski, who did the famous version of Man Of Constant Sorrow off of the Oh Brother Where Art Thou soundtrack. Her band also has Jerry Douglas, the famous dobro player, in it as well. She is no slouch in the music world. I very seriously doubt that her and Plant are "doing it." They're both great musicians working together. To imply that is the only reason they're doing is to discredit both of their artistic integrities.
  10. Like any style of music that becomes popular, you're going to have those that try to take advantage of it. Rap certainly falls in that. Do I think everybody who does rap is trying to be commercial. Heck no. There are a lot of guys out there that are doing some pretty radical things with the genre. But that don't sell records. I like bands like the North Mississippi All Stars aren't afraid to try and use elements of it in their music, and when used right, it really brings out a level of blues that is actually quite intriguing. Do I actually like hip hop and rap? Not really. But some of its elements can be used. I love Gnarls Barkley, because they're doing something pretty unique with the rnb/hip hop genre. They ain't talking about bitches and ho's. And they come up with some pretty cool songs with a lot of soulful singing that almost goes back to old school 70s funk. The point is, any genre of music can be taken and bludgeoned to death. Look what Zeppelin started, yeah that ended well didn't it. By the 90s everybody was glad hair metal died. You say Zeppelin had nothing to do with it, well big freakin' blonde haired singers playing lightning fast riffs and solos. Yeah, they did, although I think that wasn't their intention. Just doing what they do.
  11. You're quoting Rolling Stone? That's not the best way to make your case. Most music lovers I know hate Rolling Stone and don't even consider them a viable source of anything. Heck, they slagged on Zeppelin early on didn't they???? Then only after it was obvious that they were wrong did they hop on the bandwagon. Eddie Van Halen is one of the greatest guitarists of all-time. You can't just say he drools. All of this quoting record sales and rankings is quite stupid. Think about it. If that were the case, the Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears would be considered the greatest artists of all-time, if we're talking record sales....does that make sense?
  12. In tribute to the Jimmy vs. Eddie thread, I have pulled out Van Halen I. And it kicks ass.
  13. And one more thing: this thread has gotten me to revisit Van Halen, and man do they kick ass.
  14. Hendrix was thought of unkindly for a while as well. Why? Overkill. You never know, that style might come back. And yes, Derek Trucks is amazing. Songlines is one of the best albums released in a long time.
  15. Both have sold a lot of records, both have had a lot of classic songs, and a lot of people still worship at the altar of both guitarists. Both are great. Again, it's just whichever you prefer. Me, I prefer Zeppelin over Van Halen, just do, can't explain it. But does that mean I don't spin some Van Halen stuff often? Far from it. Love those guys. Great music is great music.
