  1. I actually liked most of the Great American Songbook series. I like the raspy voice applied to those great standards, and he gives them a twist.
  2. I've got my income tax check. By sept I'll need a break. I'm thinking driving to Chicago and spending the weekend and paying i49.00 for tickets is still worth it. If I can swing it I will!
  3. Pat Boone doing Tutti Frutti!! Maynard G. Krebs!! Thanks for the memories Unc! I just barely remember the Dobie Gillis show but remember it I do! ::
  4. I love listening to 50's stuff. It's mostly all "feel good" music. I think part of that is that there was a little bit of rebelliousness in it, and you can feel the joy of the artists in playing and singing the way they want to.
  5. Gotta go with Bluesy here. I like Rod Stewart...early Rod Stewart. One of my first albums was Rod Stewart with Faces. And Maggie May will always be a classic, even if it is overplayed.
  6. Sorry Stocky, not laughing at you, just at how some topics just go in circles! We have not met..I'm Windy, welcome to the best little fish pond I know!
  7. You know, I don't know anything about Supertramp, the individuals, or the band as a whole. But I like most of thier music.
  8. So Sammy are we happy yet? Fenway Park is a lock. The closest they are coming to me is Chicago. But it's Sept.10 in Chicago, just in time for my birthday! Presents anyone?
  9. I thought I was the only one who loves puppy smell! Adorable puppy, perfect name! I want a puppy.... I would suggest at least a half in half out dog...I'm the proud owner of an inside horse (rottie) I have to beg him to go out!!
  10. That's really pretty interesting jr. I never realized that it was such recent history. So when the song was released, it was a fairly recent happening? Never knew that. The kind of stuff I enjoy learning.
  11. There is a "rockumentary" on HBO about the writing, recording and release of Smile, also kind of a life history of Brian Wilson. It's definately worth watching, and learning a little something.
  12. these guys are going to some lengths to make sure this concert is available price wise to everyone. Tickets go on sale this Saturday for us in St Louis. Besides reasonable ticket prices, for the first week of sales there is no service fee for ticket sales at the box office. It was announced on the radio that Mellencamp is covering the service fees. Cool huh? ::
  13. As much as I'd love to see all the world has to offer, more than anything I would love to explore the United States. Visit all the places I have read about. I'd love to visit the coast of Maine, the Carolinas and the east coast. The Dakotas, and so much more. There is such a variety to explore and experience right here. I love history,and the history of any place I happen to be is what I love to learn about.
  14. When I say geek trip, I mean a trip whre you actually learn something. When I was a kid most of Route 66 was still in exsistence. It starts in Chicago, but I have traveled the route from St Louis to Needles Ca and beyond. I remember loving that trip. Now that so much of the Highway is gone, I'd like to see just where it has gone(disappeared) to!
  15. Several more right answers I forgot to post. Yes Shank's mare means on foot. Rosin, as in rosin up your bow, makes it slide smoothly. Doodlebug, Diggs has the name right, it's a bomb. Lats in my experience are piecesof wood maybe 2 inches wide, that provide the support for walls. These were under a thin coat of plaster.
  16. If I Were A Carpenter - Kris Kristofferson et al The Roadie Song - Jackson Browne Maggies Farm - Bob Dylan Sloop John B - The Beach Boys
  17. And that is just as I expected! Publicity folks, publicity. And we all know that all the guys in the band began slowing down in the 90's. These are older men, with families, real lives, but careers which require a certain amount of publcity and spin to sell records. It is a business after all, and the Stones have excelled at that business.
  18. I have lots of ideas for "dream vacaions",tropical islands, beaches, mountains, sailing etche rest of you have more. I also have my geek vacaion, a vacation where I can actually study something and learn more about somthing. That dream vacation for me is Route 66. I am facinated by the history and sociology of this highway. It was not just a road, but a way of life for many. My dream is follow Route 66, as much as posible, from St. Louis to LA. When I was young I used to make this trip, when the Highway was still in use. i remember a lot, and want to see what is there and what is not. I know some parts of the road do not even exist anymore so it could be quite the adventure. How about anyone else, geek vacations you'd like to take?
  19. Number 19 - Fanny Blankers-Koen, the first woman to win 4 gold medls in a single olympics, and set 7 world records. This was sometime in the 1940's, Probably after WWII. There is a large breed of dog called a Clumber Spaniel or Springer Spaniel. Very large cumbersome dogs, but used as working dogs for herding and keeping watch over sheep. Gis I was really lucky, when my grandfather was 95, he was worried that his family would not remeber or know what his life was like so he sat down and made tapes, in his own words, telling his life story, and situations. It is extrememly interesting and I cherish those tapes! Good for you for wanting to know!
  20. Another of my favorites, and yes, what a great line. Those would be my favorite Rock songs, but Somewhere Over The Rainbow is my all time favorite!! ::
  21. One Of my favorite rainbow songs, I've likened myself to that girl.
  22. It has been said that Bono was placed on the IRA's hit list because of this song and a performance of it. No offnce to our Irish members, and maybe they know more about this? I find it very interesting, being of Irish descent. It would definately be something no one else would do.
