    I was wondering if you were a rock and roll girl. Nickelback is cool. I like these too.

    Dude, nothing personal, but you have awful taste in music if you think that is real rock and roll.   lol

    I know that is very rude of me, but all those bands minus the Foo Fighters, who are so overrated in their own right, all channeled that god awful late 90s pop/grunge Creed sound that just is so awful and recycled.

    Just cringeworthy, IMO, but it's what makes the world go round.

    I've been told I am the dumbest person on the internet, ironically by a Home Ec teacher in NH who lives in a trailer.

    But, thanks Bobby. You're an intelligent fan yourself.

    No longer in business, but check this out and you'll get a flavour for what it was like on a good night . . . anybody could show up.  The waitress you can see in one of the shots was named Aretta . . . she used to charge us $3 bucks a beer.  The locals only paid $1, but we didn't complain much . . .

    We used to go to the Double Door.  I don't think the Checkerboard has been around for a long time. Kinston Mines was the other one.

    Clapton had been known to swing in and play at the Double Door on occassion.

    That video is hilarious. Very likely on an off night on the Tatoo You Tour.  Waters died a couple years later.

    Don't remember the Double Door (may have opened after I moved from Chicago), but Kingston Mines has been around for ever.  Checkerboard was a real South Side blues bar--a really cool place to go, though in a pretty dangerous neighborhood. 

    That video was shot during the Tatoo You tour.  I actually wanted to go to the Checkerboard that night thinking the Stones might show up, but couldn't get anyone in my dorm to go (and in that neighborhood, just blocks from the Robert Taylor homes, I wasn't going alone!).  Everyone wanted to go the next night (which we did), but of course the Stones weren't there a second time.  Still had fun though, since Buddy and Junior were almost always there back then and they always put on a great show.  Guy is an amazing player.  He used to do sets where he imitated every great blues guitarist perfectly (along with a few rockers, including Jimi Hendrix. mixed in), then did his own (somewhat idiosyncratic) thing.

    I don't take anything here personal, Rusty. It is getting harder to find good music nowadays. It's why I've stuck with Rush all these years.

    Ugh. Of all the bands...LOL

    I hate Rush too.   His voice is so painful. I agree good rock music is hard to find, but you need to loosen your barometer on what you look for to let other strains in so you can get some new stuff. Otherwise, you'll never get anything.

    If you like the same recipe that these labels and producers serve up, then you're probably going to get the same sounding stuff. I don't even know what rock radio sounds like right now.

    But, if you want something with some bite to it, it's unlikely it's going to be out there on a large scale.

    You should check out a blues player like Bonamossa or someone like that.  Or, even his project the Black Country Communion. You might like that and won't sound as light as that Nickelback stuff.

    This does little for me, but you might dig it:

    Anybody who thinks that is an imbecile. I ignore imbeciles. You have been borderline until now, but that stupidity downgrades you, permanently.

    Jesus, you're old. I can see why you get angry and flustered here.  lol

    The Double Door is in Wicker Park. Where you were, I don't think I ever really was.  There was never a need to go down there unless going to a White Sox game.  

    Did you got to UI-Chicago?  Why did you live down there?

    I can't imagine it back then.

    No, University of Chicago.  Hyde Park . . . .

    This won't be on the radio and I realize this is a famous club or whatnot, but if you want to see what is going on, you can stumble across stuff like this when you pay attention to the clubs where you live....Nickelback or whoever else ain't capturing this kind of vibe. Sorry.

    Velvet Underground fans should like this even if it kills their studio version:

    We've been trying to keep that a secret.  You must be a musicologist. Hope you don't find out about our plants, animals and rocks.
