They only toured for 2-3 years, and that URGH! footage was taken near the end. Partridge had/has horrible stage fright and couldn’t do it anymore. They’ve been a studio band since 1982. I think the only time they came to the US was as openers for The Police on the Zenyatta Mondatta tour?
What is that?
That sounds about right, from what I remember from watching the “This Is Pop” documentary a while back. The whole no-touring thing ended up being in some ways a blessing in disguise it seems like, since they weren’t constrained anymore by only being able to record songs that they’d have to be able to perform on stage.
I hope that both teams put in a solid effort on Saturday, I’m sure as disappointing as it is to not be in the finals you want to end on a high note. Especially since when we played each other in the group stage it was more of which team wanted to lose more badly to get into a better bracket in the knockout rounds.
Yes! Very cool.
Right! There is such resolution felt at "and we headed for home" and then bam, Susan comes into play. Just a songwriting gem.
I already saw what that tele is.
I asked because it has the open coils on the neck pickup and I'm thinking it may be a good solution for my problem: I hit my tele neck pickup cover a lot with the pick and it goes through the amp!
Had a Bill Lawrence no cover neck pickup once and didn't like it. Sounded like a strat.
What tele pickups have that open coil thing but sound like a tele neck pickup?
I know TV Jones has the Starwood and there's also Vaughn's Velvet Custom tele set but I'd like something more affordable...
I think Vampires is among his best work ever. Molotov isn’t perfect, but it really resonates with me.
Agreed about Vampires. The rest of the album is kinda hit and miss for me.
It's the 2018 Fender Custom Shop DLX Burl Maple Thinline.
Thanks for the morning dose of Petty. It helps wash out some of the bad taste from my time out of the Boat yesterday.
Don't take any elderly female relatives with you.
1. Thankfully no noise w the Marc F’n Ford, except when guitar volume at zero (which, who cares);
2. Despite all my Robbie Robertson kidding, It Makes No Difference from The Latz Waltz is a top ten best ever whatever the category, and his guitar is perfect in it. That song gets me every damn time.
They did headlining dates in the US ('81?). We (JJ&BH) opened the tour. It was a couple weeks. Playing live was clearly uncomfortable for them.
What if you realized your lifelong dream of being in a successful band and playing all over the world to sold-out arenas full of screaming fans who sing along with all your songs, only to find out that all of the screaming fans were pre-teen boys and their moms? #imaginedragons
Had a first full band rehearsal last night since things went crazy a couple of months ago. Nice to get back on the horse. Studio had a Katana so gave it a whirl, some cool clean tones on that thing. Not quite tube-goodness, but not bad at all.
There's a lot of people in Nashville, a lot, who rely on them to keep busy now.
I think I could live with it
I haven't bought any Supros yet, but I did just finish the Robertson book at the beach so my Alt-C creds should be safe for now. Like everyone else said, it was entertaining & engagingly written. At first I was happy to see that it ended at The Last Waltz - a lot of rock autobiographies have way too much recent history for me. The Pete Townshend one was bad for this (Keith Moon dies about halfway in). By the time I got to the end of Robertson's book I wanted more though, even though I don't know anything about his post-Band life. Maybe he'll do a volume 2...
I like the Katzenkoenig, but I think it might be too gainy for me even on the lowest settings. There's not a trim pot I can adjust, is there? It's very possible that when I thought I wanted a Rat-style distortion I really just wanted a germanium pre, so I may end up returning it & sticking with my current 'Rat', an Enormous Door PDX I got in a trade a while back. It sounds really good to me at low gain settings, which is kind of funny because the dude's pedals (apparently he closed up shop and started building as Lone Wolf) are marketed to people like this :
Admittedly not my cup of tea, but after watching "Believer" on HBO, I have more respect for the lead singer and his support for the LGBTQ community, especially for Mormons in that community.
He is paying 401k for band members. It certainly sounds like a small corporation from the outside and good on him for that.
I love The Nashville Sound. there are a few on there that don't resonate as much w/ me but overall I think its a great album.
