  1. Thanks, Walesdad. Another great song from OGWT that he did was "Walk on Hot Coals." Blistering guitar solo, as usual, but also some keen keyboard work from Lou Martin. But check out Taste's 2nd album "On The Boards" to catch a glimpse of what Rory was to become later on. That album has it all. Blues, jazz, country and, of course, rock. That's where "Morning Sun" came from. One of my favorite tunes is "Railway and Gun." The song starts with Rory gently finger picking the guitar with drummer John Wilson keeping time on the snare with rim clicks. At the end of the verse, you can actually hear Rory crank up the volume pot on his guitar as the song explodes into the next verse. Also, you may like "It's Happened Before, It'll Happen Again." Jazzy tune with a Charlie Parker-esque be-bop feel to it. Rory even plays a pretty good sax on the song.
  2. One of my personal favorites from the Taste days. It seems that playing that riff and singing wouldn't be easy. John Wilson's drum kit cracks me up and brings back memories of days when drum equipment couldn't take the pounding of rock & roll.

  4. I see it didn't take long before somebody admonished me about this. Cannot we use sarcasm around here anymore? For the record, I have nothing against Phil Collins and in fact, respect the man for all of his musical accomplishments. Because I choose to use humor to post this, the serious folks have to chime in. Jesus, Don Rickles would starve today. Anyway, tell me I'm not the only one who thinks that as the older Phil gets, he looks more like the little guy Benny Hill used to pat on the head.

  6. well, i'm sure glad we got this cleared up as I was beginning to lose sleep over it. The thing I like about Joni Mitchell is that she is pne of the first female artists that didn't use her sexuality to sell her music. At least that's my opinion. It doesn't mean that she's not attractive, but she's pretty plain jane compared to others. Secondly, her speech at the Isle of Wight, condemning the behavior of the crowd, is timeless. "You're acting like a bunch of tourists, man!"
  7. okay, I see someone else started a Joni thread and it's already locked. Why is that?
  8. I love Cheap Trick. Only got to see them live once, and it was with John Brandt on bass, but they still kicked some serious ass. A funny thing is that during the show, some dufus from the audience jumped on stage and tried to rip Rick Nielsen's cap off of his head. The security guys reached him first, but Rick (in his wry humor) said "hey cousin, how ya' doin'. Hey everyone, meet my family from Detroit!" It was great.
  9. Okay, I'll get serious here. 1. Berets 2. weird accordion music 3. and this guy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OdzlJQxkEIo
