I definitely predate many on the board but I do like so many of the bands you mentioned and having been in a band for almost 19 years (another lifetime ago) I've played many of the songs from the bands you mentioned.

Now since you've asked, my fav is Grand Funk Railroad as I grew up on them but I do like Queen and the Foo Fighters as well as U2.

Just to name a few of who I've seen live (could fill a notebook and my twin still has every ticket from every concert we've attended)

Just to mention a few I've seen live, of course GFR, & Led Zep, Queen, Mott the Hoople, Pink Floyd, Aerosmith, Bowie, Frampton, Uriah Heep, Genesis, Black Oak Arkansas, Doobies and anyone else who's come to the Gulf Coast during between the early 70's (can't you tell) forward.

I do wish I could have seen Weird Al live but each time he's come, they don't make announcements but I have all his cd's.

So much for the oldies.

 

ps. you should have started a poll :):huh::D

That's a cool thing Paul.I grew up in Detroit and can remember seeing Grand Funk before they changed their name to Grand Funk.I can't remember what it was (getting old and the memory just isn't the same).We used to go to the Roostertail club on the Detroit river and see lots of bands.Grank Funk,Bob Seger,Mitch Ryder (who by the way went to my high school and played our senior prom).And of course all the Motown bands,the Supremes,the Temptations,Martha Reeves,Stevie Wonder.I actually went to the J.Geils concert that was recorded and put out as a live album(Full House).I've seen so many bands I can't even begin to list em.

 

One of the best concerts I ever saw was Supertramp at the Ford auditorium,sounded as close as you can get to an album recording as I've ever heard.

Some of my fav's-Supertramp,Crosby,Stills & Nash,Clapton,Santana.Newer bands-Flipsyde,Black Rebel Motorcycle Club,Bare Naked Ladies,and Train to name a few

 

Oh and I forgot to throw in one from down your way-The Radiators.

Grand Funk, named after the Grand Trunk Railroad in Flint, MI was Terry Knight and the Pack. Mr. Knight suffered from being a major weenie if you get my drift.

The Radiators are back in N.O. playing soon I see. Funky!

I know some people may not be MSN fans but one of the cool features of MSN Messenger is the "What I'm Listening to" feature.It let's you set you're personal message to show what you are listening to on WMP.There are also plugins for other players.

I know I often see others listening and then listen myself.I've found quite a few good tunes that way.Of course they have to be in your contact list to see them,but after I catch a good tune I usually message them to say thanks for turning me on to that one.

I just might give that a try one night and check it out. I like listening to some of the upcoming bands from other areas and occassionally, find one I can stomach.

If you do make sure you go into WMP tools and turn on the Background plugin that enables it in WMP.I know you like Winamp and I'm pretty sure there's a plugin I got from their site to enable you to use it for Winamp.In fact,I just tried it and I'm sure of it.

 

Here's the link to it:

I wouldn't call me a 'musician' but I still play the guitar occassionally. I was in a band for 19 years and went nowhere....played or tried to play lead guitar. Good times but poor times.

Sheherazade is a great piece of music. The version on their "Live at Carnegie Hall" LP is my favorite.

Holy Moley, you guys are all really a bunch of young wipper snappers. :huh: During my days in college, every Saturday night I would go to the "Paladium" in Hollywood and dance and listen to the "Big Bands". Still can't dance however !! :) Now there is some great music. Now if that doesn't date me, I don't know what would. :D And hey Paul, Guitar music is one of my favorites. Have you ever heard of "Tommy Emmanuel" ? This Australian dude can play a guitar like no one I have ever heard of before.

 

Oh, by the way, as far as the newer stuff, I am a country western music lover now. LIke Brooks & Dunn--Clint Black--Waylon Jennings--(gone now) and a whole bunch more.

 

Frank...

Yes Frank, I have. Don't know much about him but my music buff friend has enjoyed his 'strumming' for some time.

Can't do too much country myself but the wife drives my son nuts with it all the time.

Never did care for Les Paul and his friend Mary, Terry, But I do love those electric guitars. On one of Tommy Emmanuel's concerts he did in St Louis, he tell the story of when he and his brother first started playing. They ask their Dad if they could have a couple of "electric" guitars, so he mortgaged their hopuse and bought them a couple. Well when they got them the first thing they asked their Dad was "Where's the AMP, Dad". Then the story goes on from there. And Bruce, it's ROFLMAO for sure :) Tommy E. rarely has any of his concerts in the US. A few but not many. Most of them are somewhere else in the world. This guy even plays the drums on his guitar !!!

Check out the coma between Mary and Terry, Brenden. The Terry I was referring to was Terry, the Digital Guru that had a reply on this post.

 

I guess I should have just said "I don't, or never, cared for Les Paul OR Mary" and left off the Terry part :huh:

Sorry Frank,

 

I did see it. I was just being cheeky and playing on the words.

 

 

"I guess I should have just said "I don't, or never, cared for Les Paul OR Mary" and left off the Terry part"

 

No, that sounds too much like the "Do you now or have you ever belonged to . . . " from the McCarthy era. :)

 

Do you listen to Satriani?
