  1. It is an experience to listen to one of the greatest raconteurs of the 20th Century. Frank Zappa was assited with his storytelling by The Turtles (Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan). These people are featured on such tracks as "Uncle Meat" "Mud Shark (on backing vocals)," "What kind of Girl Do You Think We Are?" and a few others. You listen to this album to hear a great story, not stellar musicanship. Although Zappa performed "Peaches en Regalia" and "Tears began to fall" as an encore, the storytelling is the main highlight of this terrific live album. Listen to a Great Story Today.

    Kickin in the Kalahari

    Kalahari So here I am One last time Alone, like the land Parched dreams Fight over the canteen of hope Bobbling it, spilling it, As I lay The wind whistles silence Though it blows all the time Dust and dismay Upon this half world Violet skies pursue a fleeing sun Colored cacophony flood my eyes A tide of lies washes a mirage of ease Upon the torched shores of my flesh

    How Good Of A Drummer was Ringo?

    Didnt Jon Lennon say, supposiedly "He (Ringo) is not even the best drummer in the The Beatles." Thats rough paraphrasing though.

  8. My friend asked me if I could ascertain the name of this song I heard on the radio. I would have inquired on Adtunes.com, however, I seldom use that site and belive songfacts provides more insighful feedback regarding these matters. The song has been on the radio recently, and has the line, "...Red Hot Love..." It's a mid-tempo song, and really catchy. If anyone knows the name of this song, It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Again.
  9. The most honest music I have ever listened to. I have three of their albums: Substance Unknown Pleasures Closer What do people think about this band and the aforementioned albums? Personally, I love Unknown Pleasures, its probably my favorite studio album by this short-lived post punk rock and roll outfit. Joy Division Rocks. Brainblast: Joy Division was a group of attractive jewish women assmebled together for a Nazi officers enjoyment during WWII. The German officer would select a handful of attractive Jewish women and the group of women was labelled "Joy Division." Any New Order fans? New Order albums I have: Power, Corru[ption and Lies Technique Low-Life My favorite is Technique. It has an ethereal quality to it that makes itmore intriguing than their prior efforts. However, I still like Low-Life and PCL. New Order Rocks

  11. Why is EMO Music so Popular? I have no idea why it is, it is not even that good. There arnet any guitar solos, drum solos, drwan out 10+ minute intrumentals.
  12. Some Bands have around for a long time an accomplished a lot in their talenetd musical careers. However, some bands have been given a raw deal and have not been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, although they have the music and influence to supports their nomination. I DO Know the Criteria to be Inducted into the RRHF. 25 or more years after first album release, have a profound influence of rock and roll, and perpetuate music. U2 released Boy in 1980 exactly 25 years before they got inducted into the hall? Great band, I love them, way to early to be in the hall though. Bands Who Deserve To be Inducted: Deep Purple Emerson lake, and palmer Yes GENESIS Black Sabbath The Stooges King Crimson Van Halen T. Rex (maybe, not sure) Steppenwolf (maybe, not sure) Lynyrd Skynyrd RUSH (definitely THIN LIZZY Anyone else who deserve or doesnt deserve to be in the rock and roll hall of fame? Your Call
  13. My Choice is QUEEN. I would like to hear what others would choose as their favorite of three suggested above (The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Beatles, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Yes, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Genesis, Supertramp, Uriah Heep, David Bowiue, Traffic, Electric Light Orchestra, Mott the Hoople, Bad Company, King Crimson, Rainbow, The Police, The Clash, and Elvis Costello are not included in here). Please don't say, " why isnt ELO in here?" because I am aware of that and I want to takea survey o these three bands only. Greatly Appreciated.

    First off, I am baffled as to why Rush and Jethro Tull were not inducted this year along with J. Geils Band and Cat Stevens. Secondly, and more importantly, Rush is one of ther best rock and roll outfits of alltime. They are my third favorite band of alltime. I own every 70s albuM excepte theIR self-titled debut with drummer John Rutsey. RUSH IS GOOD. LISTEN TO RUSH. ALSO, i own Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures. They are amazing listen to them. Possibly better than Zeppelin and I am NOT KIDDING. Peart IS a BETTER DRUMMER THAN BOHNHAM. PEART IS AMAZING
  15. This is a pleasant surpise. I have been listening to a lot of Post-rock lately mainly Mogwai, Sigur Ros, Godspeed You Black Emperor. I would like to listen to this band though, they remastereed their 2000 album. Pelican is a great band a perfect amalgamation of Post Rock and Metal.

    Iron Maiden vs. Judas Priest

    Judas Priest all the way
  18. Free. Rodgers, Kossof, Kirke, and Fraser. The remastering of this classic live album is impeccable and the bonus tracks are a must for any ardent Free fan. The original album (consisting of tracks one through eight)are stellar. The album kicks off with the classic, "All Rigth Now" This song basically shaped all of AC/DC's material in both the Bon Scott Era (the better era of AC/DC) and the Brian Johnson Era. A Free neophyte would easily asscocite the opening track, "All Rigth Now" with AC/DC, an rightly so. "Be My Friend" and "Get to Where I Belong" are a couple of best slow, riff-rocking, awe-inspiring songs on this album and it is truly an experience to here it live. One may be inclined to inquire. what are the better live albums than Free Live? They are: 1. How the West Was Won-Led Zeppelin 2. On Your Feet or On Your Knees-Blue Oyster Cult IMPORTANT: Free Live is a perfect amalgamtion of the two aforementioned live albums. First, Free Live is remastered, like How The West Was Won. Secondly, this album is one CD runs about 77 minuted long, like On Your Feet Or On Your Knees. You will not find blazing guitar solos, although their are some outstanding ones included in this album, this more of a vocals ephasized album, not guitar oriented album.

    Need help with a school report

    Joy Division had profoundly influence upon the future of music. Check Out: Touching from a Distance-Deborah Curtis, Ian Curtis' wife/widow If you have ever listened to Tool, you can tell Maynard James Keenean was influenced by Ian Curtis' vocals before he hanged himself at the age of 23. Kurt Cobain, Nirvana, said JD's "Love Will Tear Us Apart" is the greatest song of alltime. i wouldnt agree with that atement, but it shows the influence they had upon bands. Moreover, there are striking similarities between Cobain's suicide and Curtis' suicide. my avatar is Ian Curtis
