No offense, but I was laughing my ass off at you.

I mean, look at all those exclamation points:

quote:
WHATTTTT?!?!?!?!

Crappy bands?!


and the 5 T's on what....

:laugh:

and then the link to the youtube video....

Like, someone is going to be sitting on the fence on whether or not they think Jimmy is crappy until they watch your link

:laugh:

I'm sorry man, but that's just really funny to me. Its Trolling 101. Any time someone brings up some kind of music or a band or something, if you say how bad they suck, one of their fans is gonna freak out. and its hilarious.

Dude, the quality of music is one of the most subjective opinions we can have. Someone who only likes Country music could very well have the opinion that Jimmy Hendrix is crappy. Their opinion doesn't mean anything.

Perhaps I was a bit excited but I wasn't going with trying to sway on the fencers. I offered a sampling of one of the greatest moments of Woodstock, perhaps he had not seen this display of badassness on a guitar before and needed to be exposed to it. Perhaps he was just talking out of his ass about it being a crappy concert.

I'm sorry man, but that's just really funny to me. Its Trolling 101. Any time someone brings up some kind of music or a band or something, if you say how bad they suck, one of their fans is gonna freak out. and its hilarious.

He said Woodstock had crappy music, thats a load of shit sir.

Now, I'm not a fan of each individual band but to make a generalized comment about the entire concert shows one is a douche when it comes to music...by whos standards...? Mine.:D

Plus, this is a music thread, there has to be some band bashing and some band loyalty, stop being so bitchy. ;)

I don't think peoples opinions on anything mean much, I like my opinion cause I usually agree with it.

you set them up i'll knock em down.

Funniest thread in awhile.

gotcha!!!1! ;) :P ;)

usually only n00bz get trolled that easy. but its music, and the fanboys take music so emotionally all the time, i couldn't resist. I wish this were about the beatles, i could have trolled 10 people at once. music is so subjective i can't believe how many people fall for that one every single time.

honestly i like jimi hendrix experience and the who. Its funny though how many times that same clip gets linked. I can honestly say i have not heard of many of the bands at that concert (richie havens, sweetwater, bert sommer, the incredible string band, tim hardin, melanie, ravi, joan baez, country joe mcdonald, country joe and the fish, ten years after, blood sweat and tears, johnny winter, paul butterfield blues band, and sha-na-na). but CCR is country and it is crap, janis couldn't sing and was crap, joe cocker is a cover "artist", grateful dead is pretty folksy country that is the best lullalby i have heard (ZZzzzz). actually my parents made me listen to more 1970s stuff, pink floyd, zepplin, black sabbath, rolling stones, etc. the doors, Jimi, and the Who are the main late 60s bands i was force fed

3 days for two good bands, no thanks, not sorry i missed that one.

Hi cave, just wanted to update you since I just read it today about Zeppelin.

Without Plant the band will not work under the Zeppelin name, so no actual "Led Zeppelin" tour. But the other fellas may still create a spin off of the original band with new vocals.

http://www.led-zeppelin.org/news/index.php?m=2009news#010709a

quote:
From: XFM.CO.UK 2009.01.07
Peter Mensch, Led Zeppelin's manager, has said that Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham are likely to record and tour with a new singer. Mensch told the BBC's 6music,

"People don't really understand it. Jimmy Page has been playing guitar professionally since he was 16 years old. Jimmy Page likes being a musician. That's what he does! He doesn't want to be a race car driver or a solicitor.

"They decided that if they could find a singer that they thought would fit their bill - whatever their bill was at this stage in their career - that they'd make a record and go on tour... That's what Jimmy Page does".

Peter Mensch, who's Q Prime stable also includes Red Hot Chili Peppers and Metallica, refused to comment on the rumours surrounding a replacement for singer Robert Plant. Soundgarden's Chris Cornell, Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Alterbridge's Myles Kennedy were thought to be in the frame

"I can't comment on any rumours right now," said the manager, "It's gonna be a long and difficult process. And we're not soliciting people! So don't call me about it!"

As previously reported, Q Prime have already stated that the band, without Robert Plant, would not be working under the Led Zeppelin moniker.


Even still, without Plant it should be one badass concert.

Elton & Billy
I saw Elton John and Billy Joel at the AT&T center here in San Antonio last weekend. This was by far the best concert I have ever attended. The whole performance ran from 7:30 till midnight, non-stop. Even during the transition from Elton to Billy the lights only went out for less than a minute. Then Elton's piano dropped through the stage and Billy's piano raised up and the concert began again. I have to say Elton delievered a much more energetic and captavating performance than Billy. Though that isn't saying anything bad about Billy. Elton was just that good. The best was when Elton returned on stage than the two performed together for 5-6 more songs. If any one has the oppurtunity to go see this, by all means, take it. You will not be dissapointed.

Alejandro Sanz
I don't know if any EvC members listen to spanish music, but for those who do...

I don't usually go to spanish concerts but my mom loves Alejandro Sanz, and I recently took her to his concert. First let me say this, and I know I was with my mom, but Christ, there are some amazing looking women there! I need to start going to these concerts more often. All dudes should go, even if you don't understand spanish.

But honestly, the man was brilliant. I wasn't too familiar with his music but he plays some of the best spanish guitar I've heard. The concert was great, my mom loved it and I got the phone # of the girl sitting next to me - (my mom told me to hit on her, btw).

Alejandro Sanz

Enjoy,

- Oni

Re: Alejandro Sanz
Hey oni ...
Hope things are good with ya

What a good son you are - glad to hear that mom enjoyed the show, btw ...

Oh, and be careful with that phone number, because as you probably know - those jalapeno's can be very hot and feisty

haha, Alejandro - very good pick. I've never had the opportunity to see him live, but I can imagine the show was awesome. While I'm not into strictly spanish tunes, a lotta love for the style has washed over me throughout the eighteen years or so that I've been into the (primarily acoustic) guitar scene. Spanish rhythm has a very unique, high energy that has captivated me from day one.

I think that may have had something to do with me eventually marrying a lil' butter pecan Rican, err - I mean, a lovely Puerto Rican bride. Alright ... honestly, seeing as you've an equal appreciation of the women from that island, from what I understand, there's probably a good chance that you're not gonna be convinced a lil' spanish guitar fetish had much - if anything, to do with that lol

Anyway, seeing as you posted this bit about Sanz, I thought it only proper to turn you onto another bit of, perhaps, spicy salsa flair.

Have you ever heard of Rodrigo y Gabriela?? They started off in Mexico originally and then rerooted on the other side of the pond a while back - I think they settled in Ireland at this point. They share a very high energy - and often fast & nasty, passion for rhythmic classical guitar, with key influences, as bizarre as it seems, such as Megadeath, Testament snd Metallica, etc..

I think you may be able to hear some of the stuff from their new album, 11:11, at that link (official site). They also do a pretty unique cover of Stairway to Heaven, but the first video below is of the one and only - Tamacun. Gabriela plays a rhythm guitar unlike any other woman that I've ever seen. Ever.

Tamacun live on Late Night ...

The Stairway ...

Off the beaten path of spanish influence is another one of my favorites, Andy McKee.

He's all over the international scene, rather than pissin' away his talent and time soley in the States and his jam sessions are awesome live. This dudes incredible as far as I'm concerned, but I'm not even gonna get into it, as you may not find him that impressive unless you're familiar with, or have an inclination towards, heterodox acoustic music styles. However, I will say that he's very original, as well as a bit animated and just leave it at that for now.

Drifting ...

Rylynn ...

If you dig either, or any of 'em, you can find a bunch more of their stuff on Youtube.
(check for R y G's 'Diablo Rojo' or the cover they perform of Metallica's 'Orion' - also, McKee's 'Art of Motion' or 'Into the Ocean'.)
Hope you enjoy bud ... well, I know you enjoy bud, but I hope you enjoy these tunes too. Maybe with some bud - lol

One Love

Re: Alejandro Sanz
Brotha Bailey, I'm doing well my friend. Hope you are too.

Let me set the scene to help you understand what I'm about to write. I just got back to my hotel room from a gig and I drank...a lot. AND, I'm in the room now, so I'm blazing (smoking) so I hope what I type is comprehendable (that word was hard to spell in my condition).

What a good son you are - glad to hear that mom enjoyed the show,

I try to be, that's one of the things that keeps me grounded in reality, my parents...and my kids.

Oh, and be careful with that phone number, because as you probably know - those jalapeno's can be very hot and feisty

Sir Bailey, I've been married, divorced and engaged to only "jalapenos," so I know the level of their "spicyness."

And while I appreciate the warning, I feel it's falling on deaf ears, cuz this kid loves his latinas!

haha, Alejandro - very good pick. I've never had the opportunity to see him live, but I can imagine the show was awesome. While I'm not into strictly spanish tunes, a lotta love for the style has washed over me throughout the eighteen years or so that I've been into the (primarily acoustic) guitar scene. Spanish rhythm has a very unique, high energy that has captivated me from day one.

Yea, Alejandro was very cool. The show was amazing because, as you may or may not know, spanish concerts bring a lot of variety. So there was never a dull moment. La vieja loved it.

Have you listened to Slash from GnR playing Bolero?

honestly, seeing as you've an equal appreciation of the women from that island, from what I understand, there's probably a good chance that you're not gonna be convinced a lil' spanish guitar fetish had much - if anything, to do with that lol

- It's all about the culo!

Have you ever heard of Rodrigo y Gabriela??

Never and thank you very much for turning me on to them. That Stairway is probably the coolest thing I've heard while high...seriously, thanks

I just listened to them play "Orion" from Metallica and "One," fuck'n AMAZING! Plus I listened to their version of "Wish you were here" FUCK! These guys rock!

Gabriela plays a rhythm guitar unlike any other woman that I've ever seen.

Absolutely amazing.

Dude, this Andy guy is ridiculous! I love it. Thanks for turning me on to this as well. I like your style bro!

Rylynn was my favorite of the two but I think it's cuz it has more of a spanish flavor to it than, Drift. But Drift was great as well.

well, I know you enjoy bud, but I hope you enjoy these tunes too. Maybe with some bud

Yes I did, to both of those

Hope all is well with you Bailey, keep writing great posts as you do, I enjoy reading yo shit.

Peace out, brothaaaaa

Latest gig
Gigs have been a bit thin on the ground this year - but drove two hours on my own to see Porcupine Tree on Saturday. Well worth the effort. They are metal meets Floyd and Genesis, with other obvious influences (Rush, Marillion, Tool, etc) - great clean vocals.

Here's one of their classics:

Now just have to wait 'till next Saturday for Biff Clyro...

NIN FTW
Nine Inch Nails live is a sight to see.

They set up a huge silk screen in from of the stage and shoot video on it while playing behind it. With clever use of back lighting, they can turn your view of the band on and off. Its awesome.

Here's Hurt, which has some great footage, the ending is cool too:

Re: NIN FTW

Seen them once live, back in 92 or 93...? I forget. There's a really cool indie rock pub in Miami called Churchill's Pub. Everyone from Reznor to Manson to Pearl Jam, has come though this bar when they were coming up. It's like the CBGB of Miami. Saw NIN there. They weren't as elaborate with their concerts back then, but they still rocked.

Here's Hurt, which has some great footage, the ending is cool too:

Err, I think that's "Right where it Belongs"...?

I love at minute 3:31 when they show Bush on the screen and the whole place gives him the finger - Awesome!

Anyway, lets listen to some Hurt too:
