    ^ You have no flow.  It is o.k..  Accept this.  That is all.  I like stuff.  I speak in monotones.  I reason in overtones.  I innovate in undertones.  I am boring.  I am against adverbs.  Otherwise, I would've said "monotonous undertones."  But that would have been witty.  I am BabeParilli.  I did not mean to rhyme.  I am sorry.  But I am not.

    Gotta give a plug for my latest favourite Canadian country singer . . . 

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vzt-l0k1eHs&list=PL-vRzIstbdOYvJMoc5Ui_94ARTuZMj5eK&index=3

     

    Not really a big country fan, but like Lindi a lot.  (My current favourite song of hers is this odd little tune: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=30DFgByG4ZI.  This is nice too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oKK97XXzYWA&list=PL-vRzIstbdOYvJMoc5Ui_94ARTuZMj5eK.)

    Spend most of my time listening to classical and jazz now.  On a bit of Grant Green kick lately. Amazing guitarist . . . 

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19Hjt7a_hVc

     

    And of course, anything George Clinton touches . . . .http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JOKn33-q4Ao

     

    And, heck, why not one more Lindi . . . up in Rusty's and NEGAME's neck of the woods . . .

    I could listen to Salsbury Hill all day (and half the time I don't know why). And I always find myself in a Phil Collins phase where I'll isten to his stuff 4-5 times a year. Stevie Nicks has to have the best female voice I've ever heard, everytime a song of her's comes on the radio I have to listen to it. It's too bad she wasted so many years of her life addicted to pain killers...it would of been nice to of had her sing a little more.

    Solsbury Hill is a great tune, but it's not Phil Collins.  It's Gabriel.

    Stevie Nicks still sings as fine as anyone her age in terms of how she sounded originally. She stopped smoking years and years ago.  No singer, as they age, can sound in peak form when they're older.

    I have a bootleg of her doing the Bella Donna sessions with Petty and Heartbreakers finalizing the takes for that album.

    She always wanted to join Petty and the HB after she left Fleetwood Mac. No joke.

    Yeah I know it was Gabriel, he wrote it as he was leaving Genesis, it's an amazing song.

    Nicks has a voice that...how can I describe it? When you hear it, it has the ability to just take you away...doesn't matter where you are. Amazing.

    Dave Allen does a great song about the death of Bill Haley, called Haley's comet. Also one about Johnny Ace wehich I haven't heard. Had a cousin in Wollaston in thse days, last name Porter.  Never liked Raitt much back in the day, but got a cheap tape a few years ago with some stuff of hers I really likedf. I've got a lot of vinyl too, but dont play it enough  Go on binges once or twice a year, rest of the time its tucked in the closet or on shelves, but can't let it go

    One of the best concerts I've ever seen was Aerosmith's Summer Jam 88 at Giant Stadium.

    Guns and Roses opened (on time) and rocked.  Interesting tidbit, for me anyway.  That's where the opening of the Paradise City video is shot. A little bit into the stage shots when they go to the camera that shows the left side profile of Axl, my girlfriend at the time Heather is the hot blurry girl with the long dyed red hair in the stands you can see in the image.  Me and my friends had already jumped the wall and were on the floor.

    Deep Purple came on next and raised the energy level with a great show.  During the encore (Smoke on the Water) one of the most F'ed up things I've ever seen at a concert happened when someone threw a Molotov from the upper deck that landed in the second deck. 

    Aerosmith came on and blew the nonexistent roof off the place.

    Re: Curious, Not only where Posters are From, But which Music Roots you grew up on and which you hated

    Grew up with my parents listening to oldies; a lot of late 50's rock n roll, with some pre-Dylan folk music and early Beatles music. My parents werent fans of the Rollingstones, The Animals, Zeppelin, The Who, Hendrix, the Doors, etc so those are a lot of the bands I first started gettign into myself.

    Then in highschool I progressed into more of a punk afficianado, started with a lot of stuff from the Who and Beatle then getting into the Velvet Underground, the Stooges then the Ramones, Sex Pistols and (my current and will always be) my favorite band The Clash. Then there is a lot of other stuff from that era I liked such as; The Talking Heads, the Germs, XX, Joy Division, etc. This led me into 80's new wave and post punk music; obvious choice for me would be New Order, there is a lot of good music in this era and genre, I never really stuck with much of it. but stil likely listening to it from time to time. 

    Transitioning from 80's synth infused music, I didn't find much from the 90's to be all that great. Sure Nirvana had some decent songs to express tha anger anf agst of my relative youth. There is some very well written melodramtic rock from this era, again I never really stuck with nw musicians from this era. However, I always liked that electronic sound. So I do like certain variations of electonic music; Daft Punk, Digitlaism, Gorillaz, Kraftwork, Justice, The Faint, etc. Although currently some of my top bands that are relatively new are; My Morning Jacket, Beirut, Hot Chip just to name a few. But I will always be a oldies/classic rock/ealy punk music fan to be as vague as possible.

    But, let me just say, 99% of popular music out there now-a-days is just painful to listen to. There is a difference between good music and catchy tunes and lyrics. Dear Lord, maybe this is somewhat similar to how my parents felt with my music that I grew up with. But, god damn the likes of ke$ha, rihiana, Bieber, those boys from Englend, Nikki Minage, Adam Levine...the list goes on. This goes for most of the rap out there that is just funny to listen to because it's sooooo bad. I guess I am getting old...thanks for startign this thread! haha

    While we are on down time until the Draft.... 

    Everyone is posting where they are from and have moved to, I'm curious to know what music you were born into, and what you changed to.

    The Singer/musician you craved, and the ones that caused your ears to bleed!

    Being from the Boston area, in the late 60's as a kid it was changing from my parents influence with Country, to the Elvis Presley/ Led Zeppelin Rock.

    The 70's it was the Eagles and Heart (Ann and Nancy Wilson) then Van Halen, with the local groups Boston, and the Cars!

    the 80's were the big hair bands and watered down Zeppelin wanna be's.

    Then (ahhhhhhhhggggggg) Britney Spears and the Disney skanks to follow, Pat Benetar must have been going crazy (shes now 61, still hot and playing in May at the Hard Rock in Orlando Florida, tickets in the front row, (a mere 750 dollars each)

    So everyone, lets here your musical past.... as we wait for the Draft!
