    Miles Davis in 1967: what am I missing?

    Don't feel alone. Miles had the gift of annoying critics every step of the way. So he left them behind in the dust. Like hot curry for American tastes, Miles and other jazz and classical artists can be an acquired taste that requires repeated listening for greater enjoyment. If you feel...

    One dude's take on the hidden meanings behind the Beatle's "Come Together"

    In performance with Elephants Memory at Madison Square Garden in August 1972, Lennon said it was, "Something about a flat top, that's all I know. I'll have to stop writin' those daft words, man. I don't know what I'm saying. Gettin' old." Good enough for me.

    Guitarists that don't play their signature model

    This^. The only reason they'd play the sig would be for marketing reasons, or to keep their original instruments off the road. If someone made a copy of my favorite and gave it to me free, I'd be happy to play it in return.

    Nobody jams or will jam like the Dead

    Close. Acid tests 1965 and 1966 featured Warlocks/Grateful Dead.

    Nobody jams or will jam like the Dead

    Nobody jams or will jam like the Dead. A given, especially since they were the American pioneers of psychedelic jams. I would add only this to Jon's point: Scrape away all of the Dead's psychedelia, and they're at their core a folk, bluegrass, blues, country rock jugband. And as Grateful Dead...
