  • Forum Post: Patriot Fan Denial

    Posted 01/21/2015 11:58:11 EST

    As most here know, I'm a huge Dead fan, in fact I listed Morning Dew off of Europe 72 as a favorite Song. But, Bowie Vs The Dead, is pretty even imo. They both made great contributions to music, and r more »

    Always liked Greg Lake's, I Believe In father Christmas. There is something about the way he incorporates Prokofiev's Troika, along with the choir and orchestra, that make it sound extra Christmassy. more »

    Peter Buck, produced all of REM's albums, and is considered one of the best producers around. The same goes for Jeff Tweedy of Wilco. On the classic rock side, I am pretty sure that Brian Wilson produ more »

    One of the most discussed bands on this forum closed out their 45 year career last night. No need to rehash how important these guys have been to rock music, or how they were one of only a handful of more »

    Sorry to see this, if it is truly the end? Not sure their was a better live band, despite all of the lineup changes and turmoil. For those interested, the show will air on Sirius Radio.   Allman Broth more »

    I'd be pleasently surprised if the Smiths made it in. Musically they were way ahead of their time, and just as influential as the Clash,  but to be included would be against everything the band ever s more »

    Just got back from seeing the Posies tonight. Great show. Even though they have been around for twenty years, I have never seen them live, so I guess they are new to me. I am amazed at how much these more »

    One of the better Box sets I own is the Studio Recordings, by the Jam. This set is great because instead of CD's, all of the bands material including all six studio albums, plus, single, b-sides, back more »

    Thanks for posting this Rich.  I listened  to it a few times and I just can't warm up to it all that much. But there are some nice songs there like California, Cederwood Road and the Troubles.
