Now that is my kind of music. My dad grew up listening to Styx and Journey in high school and I picked up his tastes in music.

So what do they call Buddy Holly, Eddie Cochran, Chuck Berry, Richie Valens, etc.?

Let me guess...

They say "Who?"

Without those "fossils", they wouldn't have the music they listen to today.

All great bands! Don't feel old, just because we metal heads are listening to random bands doesn't mean we don't love the pillars of rock!

Not to change up the ongoing genre, but I've started listening to more country lately. And not fossil country...

Miranda Lambert. Outspoken, spunky, gun owner (believes everyone should own at least three but she owns more)

And entirely HOT.

All she needs to do is get her Class 3 license and buy a liquer store and I'm set.

Of course, there aren't too many women in country that aren't hot. And Reba is still at the tops of that list.

And without the 'fossils' that came before them (read old Chicago/Mississippi bluesman) a lot of those bands (ie Led Zeps first three albums, Eric Clapton,Beatles, etc) wouldn't have had the initial material or inspiration to form a band in the first place.

I've noticed that a lot of kids (mostly musicians in their teens) these days actively listen and practice to 60-70's era rock.

Maybe it's the beat, maybe it's the groove....maybe it's the musicianship!!

I'm with you, but these kids call it that. BTW you forgot The Doors.
Enjoy that weather Sir, it's 30 degrees in upstate NY.

Cool tune. As I get older I find it more difficult to find new music, the mundane boring shit called work get's in the way and I don't have satellite radio. Even if I did though, not sure when I'd listen to it...for instance when I'm not listening to my wife call me an asshole, I'm listening to one of my kids scream. Shamus! Ain't it fun!!! LMAO

How cool is that!?

Maybe I'll go listen to some Rollins, good mood music.

Hands upon Black Earth, reminds me of a freaky dust filled night driving through Basra after things started to heat up down there. The consulate security was testing their warning system and blasting rock music, while outside the gates the Mosques were blasting their stuff. What an eerie sound.

Right now I am in a funk.

as in Brothers Johnson, Parliament Funkadelic, Yaz, Gap Band, Ohio Players...


a couple of weeks ago I was very Pink. All Floyd, all the time.



Oh and Green Hat, you forget Judas Priest. They will probably be my next musical binge.

You would be surpised how well certain Rob Zombie music blends in with the call to prayer.

"Trouble Man"

Waylon Jennings



I was so ugly...

the doctor slapped my momma when I was born

Then he took out his pocket knife and cut off my horns

He said lady if you ain't already picked out a name

Go ahead on and call him trouble man

He's gonna be wild, I'm givin you warnin

He's gotta have rules, keep an eye on him


Verse 2:

I grew up with long and lean and hungry looks

I learnt you can't go nowhere when you go by the book

People all around me earthbound, I learned how to fly

Upside,downside,outside,sailing on by

Out of my reach,out of my hands

Out of control,trouble man


Verse 3:

I've been as far in all directions as you can get

I ain't never had enough of anything yet

I had women that tore me apart without any reason

I say baby i don't get mad i just get even

I don't explain if you don't understand

I'm my own man,trouble man


Trouble man

I have not winced nor cried aloud.

My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate
I am the captain of my soul.

Not listening to anything right now, but this morning I was visiting my mom at the retirement village she's moved to, and a local 17 piece big band was playing in their activity center.

Damn good stuff, and the musicians were all top notch, mostly older but with a couple of younger guys and gals in the mix.

They played two sets, 22 songs in all, and never missed a beat. I think my mom was almost as excited to hear them play as I was.

Right now, I've got Ja Da ringing in my head.
