  1. Well, according to what the Pres just said, he hasn't been dead for years. I'm concerned about the possibility of reprisals . .
  2. I see you don't feel bad enough for him to spell his name right.
  3. Thanks, Sam--what a great picture, and how nice to see Terry Reid looking so well (if a tad different from the mod I remember ). Great review, strider--and beatbo, next time!
  4. Thanks for the videos. I was there too, and it was an excellent show. I agree with most of justawoman's review (except that I thought Houston last year was an unbelievable show, and that I don't think Beck was upstaged, they were perfect complements to each other playing completely different kinds of sets). I'm looking forward to the pics, as mine were pretty awful, despite being as close as we could get to the barrier separating us peasants from the VIPs.
  5. Uh, yes. They did. We've already argued this one into the ground in previous threads, but just as one example, many old blues songs had hardly an original line in them. Nobody sued anybody, that's how the musical tradition worked as a process of mutual influence. This whole idea of copyrighting music is comparatively recent.
  6. Exactly. And many of his contemporaries (and forerunners, and followers) did exactly the same thing.
  7. Because they want to, I suppose. (You have a style that is remarkably similar to one of our former members, cate. Total coincidence, I'm sure.)
  8. Cate up there sounds awfully familiar . . . Anyway, I am very attached to the Queen, and wish her grandson and his bride the happiest of days, with nobody falling off a horse. (I sympathize with the money issues, but it's always struck me that regular people spend an obscene amount of money on weddings these days too.)
  9. Ev had a check-up yesterday and the news was promising. (Their engagement isn't a new development, but it's certainly a very happy one!)
  10. People always ask me that, and I can't remember for the life of me who opened (I remember the venue, it was the Wembley Empire Pool, long gone)--I'd have remembered if it had been Hendrix, though, because I had tickets to see him another time and then I got the chicken pox and couldn't go. Edit--nope, Hendrix was apparently in Miami that day.
  11. Stop it! (If you guys are friends, can't you have these conversations via PM? ) The answer to is yes. Very much so.
  12. Thanks, Sam, learn something every day! I'd have sworn they were never billed as the Yardbirds, even with the evidence in front of me.
  13. Edit: I was replying here to the post at the bottom of the previous page--perhaps this last post ^^ explains the confusion. LZ were never billed as the Yardbirds, and only briefly as the New Yardbirds. Where are you seeing that on the site?
  14. I know that you can dish it out, too. Calm down, for heavens' sake. Nobody has been trying to cause trouble with you--the posts you just quoted had nothing to do with you, until you decided to weigh in and be as rude as possible. Then you claim everyone else is being negative. Seems like you're not going to be happy until you get into a real firefight, but--sorry, not rising to it. I notice the one part you didn't quote up there was the part where I suggested that you don't start shit.
  15. I am not replying to something that was POSTED 3 1/2 years ago, I'm replying to a bunch of posts over the last few weeks, the most recent having been posted yesterday. And by "the people who fell asleep," I wasn't referring to the people mentioned earlier in the thread, which has moved on from that--the most recent comments have just been about the general idea of people falling asleep at this or any other important gig. That's what I was commenting on, as the context should have made obvious. Yes, I was there--no, I wasn't sitting in the same row as those people, nor ever claimed to. And
  16. The people who fell asleep weren't tired (as far as I know) or bored (as far as I know), they were just drunk (I do know that).
  17. No, no, no, you're making too much sense, you'll never cut it in this thread. (Seriously--great post.)
  18. You're correct about the double entendre, and you're also correct about Let It Bleed. What you're not correct about is imagining that calling a song Brown Sugar would make it appeal to bubblegum fans, or that it had anything to do with that genre. It's not like nobody knew what sort of music to expect from the Rolling Stones.
