    My dad bought me Dark Side of the Moon for Christmas when I was 10. He wasn't always on as he bought Frampton Comes Alive at the same time.

    That same year my best friend bought me News of the World for my birthday which luckily was 2 days after it was released (Oct 30).

    My brother (born '62) introduced me early on to bands across the spectrum: Styx, Zeppelin, The Who, Boz Skaggs, Van Halen, Prince, Yes, Chicago, The Replacements, Allman Brothers, The Beatles, etc. My own initial tastes branched from there starting mostly with AOR, heavy metal, then I got turned onto alternative (Radio Free Europe might be my oldest memory?) and the spark was lit.

    Like you I've added on other genres (blues, hip hop, classical) and my interest in listening but also exploring has never waned.

        He canceled at the 930 Club too. Maybe he canceled the whole tour. Dude's gotta be 70.

        Edit: Only 63. Nick Cave's just 5 years my senior. Yikes!

            The vocalist is terrible.

            She's much better here. The bass player (who is in Blue Öyster Cult now) is amazing and very funny. They are either brother/sister or husband/wife.

            Edit: husband/wife. HS sweethearts!
            I will disagree. She is a fabulous vocalist. Has a great voice.

                  • Just a short drive-by. Summerteeth by Wilco is quite possibly the perfect album.
                    What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

                    • What are some song lyrics you got wrong either for a short bit or for a very, very long time? My worst example:

                      I'll catch some rays down in Africa...

                      I mean come on, it's Africa. Plenty of sun amiright?

                      Whenever I listen to "Higher Ground" by RHCP I have to envision the Stevie Wonder version in my head to remember the chorus.

                      My claim to fame is I can nail about 95% of REM.s "It's the End Of The World..." if I've heard it fairly recently.

                      • cc to Slap: I went and downloaded all of Soccer Mommy's albums. She is really good, and is a welcome break from Kesha and Lady Gaga.

                        • If anybody here is into jazz I'd like to talk. So far really getting into Mobley and Blakey. Love Ellington's and Basie's compositions. Digesting the stylistic differences of {Gillespie, Davis} and {Parker, Coltrane}.
