Songs of Rock: These aren't your grandpa's music
Led Zeppelin's Dazed and Confused - John Bonham, as usual, does righteous justice to the skins.
Led doing Whole Lotta Love (just pictures) - blues-inspired (I wanna be your backdoor man), uses echo as a precursor to the main vocal (way down inside, woman), just fucking drives in parts. Shake for me girl!!!
Rush's YYZ live - named for the call letters of Toronto's airport, I like the framework of this as it shows off Alex Lifeson guitar work and Neil Peart on the skins. Geddy Lee on the bass is pretty tight too. As an added bonus: The Rhythm Method - Drum Solo is tacked on to the end of YYZ.
Kiss's Detriot Rock City live: Always a classic. Sound is a little rough. And no makeup...ah, what a tragedy.
The Who's Baba O'Riley live. This song has been inserted into movies and commercials galore. (And a House episode.) This coming from a band that was often overlooked because of the Stones and Beatles, except by those who knew music. Keith Moon was sorely missed after 1978. John Entwistle death was sad, but not too soon. Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey still are doing it though.
I wish I could go on, but the Library is closing!!!! Later !
I'll tell you more when you tell me yours. ;)
Patience, grasshopper. You must use the force. Nothing MacGyver couldn't solve... My new bag: to make lives better through their health, their mindset. It's new, but we should always look for new. Take a gander there at Bringin' Gas & Dialin' 9: A Seven Score Addiction to the National Pastime. Writing is just about the only thing one can do to live on permanently - buildings will crumble, pictures can fade, memories blur before we know it, but words can remain visible, and understandable, long after we pass from this mortal coil. (That's why that Socrates guy still gets play!) So that's my story. Create your new story!
