  1. Thank goodness my kids never jumped on that bandwagon.
  2. Hits? Hits? Man, there are soooo many directions I could go with this article, but I'm going to just walk away.
  3. Summer of 85 through the spring of 86. I was stationed in Colorado Springs, at Ft. Carson. We'd ride around in the Rocky Mountains and always had Zep in the tape deck. I had always liked them ok before, but that was when I 'discovered' them. During that time, I bought I, II, Houses of the Holy, and Physical Grafitti. I already owned IV. (didn't everyone?) I now own all of Zep, with the exception of The Song Remains the Same. Houses of the Holy is their best, in my opinion, with The Rain Song being my favorite cut.
  4. Caution: Alcohol consuming knuckleheads are highly flammable. Do not drum near open flame.
  5. Probably not, if there's no size limit. (I will be extremely disappointed if Brad doesn't show up with a visual for this.)
  6. Actually, I was never a wine drinker, in my betrunken days. (where is that girl, anyway?) I never drank wine unless I knew I had at least a gallon of it. That way, I'd be sure and catch a buzz. Plus, the gallon jugs always had a handle, for easier transportation.
  7. Ruby, don't take your love to town ~ Ruby Rogers
  8. I have always found that simply pushing the cork all the way into the bottle solves the problem.
  9. Bernadette ~ The Four Tops (That is actually a line in the song, part of the refrain, and also the title)
  10. you are absolutely correct, Diggs. Each one I checked 'yes' on, I thought, "Yes, I did that...twenty five years ago!!!"
  11. Ooh...this might be something I'd buy. I used to own around 10 Maiden cds. Then, in a fit of compassion, I mailed them all to my youngest brother, who was away from home for the first time and homesick. I've never seen them since. Any more info on the tracks and artists? I can hear Snyder doing wasted years. It's right up his alley. Anyone going to do Hallowed Be Thy Name? That's my favorite Maiden cut. That and The Prisoner. And Tailgunner. And Still Life. And Flash of the Blade. And Flight of Icarus. And Losfer Words. And Die With Your Boots On. And Can I Play With Madness. And.....
  12. Eagles - Hotel California Don Henley Steve Miller Band - Take the Money and RunSteve Miller Carl Douglas - Kung Fu fightingCarl Douglas Kansas - Carry on my Wayward Son Boston - More then a feeling Queen - You're My Best FriendFreddie Mercury, vocals, guitar Brian May, bass John Deacon, drums, Roger Taylor Aerosmith - Walk this WaySteven Tyler, vocals, guitars, Joe Perry and Brad Whitford, bass, Tom Hamilton, drums, Joey Kramer that's all I know off the top of my head. I'm not familiar with Kansas' lineup at all, and as far as the Eagles go, I can't be sure who was in the band at that time, so I won't venture a guess.
  13. Yes, but it's got to be the live version, with the extended drum funk and jam in the middle. Speaking of which, wow, what a great live album that is, Foghat Live. Honey Hush, Slow Ride, Home in My Hand, a great cover of I Just Wanna Make Love To You, Fool For the City, and Road Fever. Great energy. Wow, I think I may have my next Amazon.com purchase.
  14. She bop, he bop-a-they bop I bop, you bop-a-they bop Be-bop-a-loo-she bop. ~Cyndi Lauper~
  15. I graduated in 1982. Growing up in the 70's, had a lot of good music to cut my teeth on. Fleetwood Mac, Boston, Aerosmith, KISS, etc. I also had to survive disco. But now, 25 years later, I don't mind it. It has a nostalgic value. I think, though, I probably would have like to have grown up in the 40's. (although I probably would have been on an LST in the English Channel or island hopping in the south Pacific). There is a lot of rich music to come from that era. Betty Hutton, The Ames Brothers, Hoagy Carmichael, Doris Day, Les Brown, Glenn Miller, Louis Prima, Benny Goodman, Art Lund, The Andrews Sisters. Oh man, what a great era. The singers sang, and the musicians played. No effects, no screaming or distortion. Everyone had talent. There was no way to fake it, like there is today. You listen to a song from the 40's, and you're going to hear honest vocals and real musicianship. There was no 'image first'. It was music first.
  16. Eyegore and CeeCee are tied for first, with 4-1 records. I'm tied for second with RonJon, at 3-2. Eyegore and CeeCee play one another this week. So, barring a tie, there will be only one person at the top of the standings at the end of week six. Poor Elvy is 0-5. Who will be her first victim?
  17. Years in prison: 7 Potential fine: £3000 Man, am I a boring person.
  18. Madonna certainly knows how to generate publicity. When all else fails, play the religion card. (Remember the 'Like A Prayer' video/Pepsi commercial thing?)
  19. Scuttlebuttin' ~ Stevie Ray Vaughan (well, just about any SRV will do)
  20. Oddly enough, I am wondering if that is such a bad career choice. Selling out arenas and playing to 25,000 screaming fans is one thing, but holds no weight when compared with saving a human life.
  21. How about "Chick-a-Boom" by Daddy Dewdrop? Or is it Big Daddy Dewdrop? Or Sweet Daddy Dewdrop? I forget.
  22. I'm right with you on this one, Sammy. Let's not forget "I Love The Dead", as well. Wonderfuly creepy. The Coop has a deliciously twisted sense of humor. "I love the dead before they're cold They're bluing flesh for me to hold Cadaver eyes upon me see nothing I love the dead before they rise No farewells, no goodbyes I never knew your rotting face While friends and lovers mourn your silly grave I have other uses for you, Darling "
  23. David Lee Roth quit Van Halen and took his clown prince act on the road, to mild success. His ep, 'Crazy With the Heat', released while still with VH, sold moderately. Apparently, that was enough of an ego boost for Roth, who either quit, or was fired, in 1985, depending on which side you talk to. His first solo record, Eat Em and Smile, did fairly well, and Roth toured with his own supergroup, consisting of Steve Vai on guitar, Billy Sheehan on bass, and Greg Bissonette on drums. His second solo effort, Skyscraper, produced the mild hit 'Just Like Paradise'. However, Roth's clown character soon wore thin, and album sales were tepid, at best. Vai and Sheehan left the band, and Roth realeased his third solo effort, 'A Little Ain't Enough', in 1991, but with the explosion of grunge, Roth looked even more like a clown, with his silly inflatable females and whatnot on stage. His happy-go-lucky style flew right in the face of the angst-ridden grunge movement, and his career was done. Since then, he's been spotted running from the cops in New York after buying pot, (or trying to, I forget now) appeared briefly with VH and cut a few songs with them, and is now training to be an EMT.
