    "Pretty in Pink" '81 Version vs. '86 Version

    Don't know if I'm the only one, but the 86 version sounds like such a different song, plus the compression and crappy sound is inherent to YouTube so.... The 86 version sounds like it could have come off of The Replacements Don't Tell a Soul. It has a completely different vibe. I do not dislike it.

    RIP Chris Cornell

    Wow. Listening to the end.. He hits those notes...I think I have an ancient copy of this show but was is bad quality. This is a perfect video. I remember I read the review for this in Circus magazine (was a metalhead) and bought it on the spot. I had it for a very long time before it got any...

    RIP Chris Cornell

    Something about this song... I always loved it. I must say that his voice in this video is pretty spot on. I know, 1992.

    RIP Chris Cornell

    I agree. This is a great song and vocal. My favorite from this record (which is saying something). You will never hear a word from meeeeee, if its an all night thing. Feel so bad for his family to have to live with this.

    Ever Re-Visit An Album Years Later and Finally "Get" It?

    Wilco - Being There. The lyrics were really too cheesy for me that in the beginning. At the prompting of some people here, I gave it a new listen and have enjoyed it thoroughly since. Not sure why the change of heart, but love it now. Now I have found albums that I didn't know about until well...

    Any thoughts/info on Yamaha Spinex pickups?

    I want to say that these were used starting sometime in the early 80s in the higher end SGs not the one that Santana would have used.

    Bob Weir's Weather Report Suite Demo

    Wake of the Flood is killer. It is crazy how he nailed the melody without any lyrics. That is a skilled lyricist to make that work. This is fun. My brother would love this.

    Izzy Stradlin

    I picked up the Ju Ju Hounds record on a whim for like a quarter at a resale shop years ago and was blown away by how good it was when I finally got around to playing it. He has a kind Ronnie Wood quality to him. Almost everything of his that I have found is really high quality.

    Praise or worship bands, what are some more rock or aggressive tunes you like to play?

    Wish there was a feature that let me step through the songs posted in a thread so I would not have to do it by hand. My church plays organ. Not much rock happening there, I just am interested in the harder edged Christian music and I am very new to the genre. I am enjoying Jesus Freak on heavy...

    Your favorite really obscure bands?

    Actually "School of Fish" if we are talking about the same band. Their first album is Grrreat. I am not sure they are that obscure though. They were pretty popular and on MTV in the early mid 90s. Three Strange Days was in pretty heavy rotation (when MTV played music).

    Twisted Sister: A Case Study

    Their bit part in Pee Wee's Big Adventure pretending to do a video for "Burn In Hell" is awesome. Read Dees book and yea, it was not all glory. He has had to eat a bit of crap over the years. I went back and looked at the videos of the performances he talked about in the book and anything...

    J.D. Simo show at Sellersville, PA 4/5/16

    Back in March, they had a show cancelled in Champaign Il and he came to the town that I lived in and played a free gig which is about 45 minutes south of Champaign. Second gig at this small bar in about 8 months. Heard it was packed and awesome. If it had not been Easters Eve and I had been...

    Modern Baseball

    I would not hesitate to go and see them again. I think my daughter does no know what to think about me liking them.

    Modern Baseball

    Took my 15 yo daughter and her friend to a sold out show in St Louis last week at The Firebird (nice venue) and had a great time. Tiny Moving Parts, Jeff Rosenstock (who looked a little worse for the wear) and Pup were opening bands. Lots of fun. I was probably the oldest guy in the room...

    Pearl Jam cover Comfortably Numb

    This is pretty great. They are a cool band doing it their way. I hope to be able to see them sometime. Some guys I know make amps and other things for them.....

    Jimmy Page: How Stairway to Heaven was written - BBC News

    I picked up an almost new tape of one of the earlier remasters of 4 at Goodwill for like $.50 a few months ago and sounds great. I was just listening to it on Saturday night and thinking how easy it is to forget or dismiss Stairway just based on hearing it almost hourly throughout the 80s. I...

    SMF (Sonic Machine Factory) amps

    So sorry that I missed your post. If you still have the amp please let me know. I will be happy to talk to you about the tubes if you have not already figured it out.

    SMF (Sonic Machine Factory) amps

    Hi Brock. I am John's friend. You have my old SMF amp. You also have my old shrek guitar. A very nice amp and guitar combination. I believe I put those power tubes in when I got it and played the crap out of it and John did as well so after shipping it out to you who knows the state of them by...

    My band opened for SIMO on Friday night. Amazing show (video inside)

    I have seen him twice this year and he is nothing short of amazing. I never saw the chest hair though. He had a full Marshall stack going the night he played our small town. Melting faces is right. He was supposed to be playing some shows with Greg Koch who is leading a band for a tribute to...

    Van Halen opening night soundcheck (no DLR) and it sounds great ...

    Now I am far from an VH aficionado but that guitar playing and tone is just sick. Drop Dead Legs..... WOW!!
