    Ringo’s Birthday Bash

    I ju Yeah....that was old though. I just find it...I dunno...disheartening that Paul didn't even spend the time for a personalized Happy B'Day. Just me, I guess....

    Ringo’s Birthday Bash

    Did Paul appear on video offering him a B'Day wish? I watched the whole thing today but I might have missed it?

    Ringo’s Birthday Bash

    I gave it about 30 minutes. As much as I am a Ringo fan.....this was...I dunno.....amateurish? But IMO...it's the same thing with all of these COVID unplugged, no band events. They all leave me flat and demonstrate that without all of the sound engineers. most aren't anything special playing...

    OT: Boats, give me the good, bad, and the ugly.

    Just saw this....Hey OP...did you decide to buy a boat? I've owned boats all of my life, worked as an offshore Charter Captain in the Florida Keys and owned Florida Keys Marine Services which performed maintenance and engine surveys. Not an expert but know enough about recreational boating and...

    Had to put my 16 yr old dog down and I can't get over it...

    No....My wife is supposed to retire at the end of the year and we plan on travelling. Not sure if I want a dog if we are going to be gone away a lot of the time. We will see...

    Had to put my 16 yr old dog down and I can't get over it...

    First...I am NOT a depressive person. Anyone that knows me will tell you that. But yesterday kicked my ass... My little buddy hit a low point this weekend where he could even hardly walk anymore. He would fall over and had stopped eating and drinking. He was already mostly blind and deaf...

    OT - Any albums make you cry?

    I was mainly referring to albums but singles are OK for the discussion :)

    OT - Any albums make you cry?

    Just wondering.... I have always loved melancholy music in the minor key with abstract style lyrics. But one work almost brings a tear to my eye every damn time I listen to it. That's the album "Wish You Were Here". Not sure why... Something about the theme of absence put to the Gm key and those...

    One World Concert last night.....

    Sorry but I couldn't watch much past the first five or six acts. I thought it was horrible. Watching people play a piano and singing acapella just demonstrates that without great songwriting, a backing band, a mix of all of the bells and whistles and great engineering and producing....many...

    Online jamming - anybody doing it?

    There is no way you can "jam" with video and audio based completely on a live feed. What you can do is have each member synced with a click track and then you can play a song alone and record it. I played in a band one time that did something liked this. We were linked to other churches that...

    Nick Mason Appreciation Thread

    I was talking to my physical therapist the other day about Floyd and I turned her onto OBTC. Told her it was one of my favorites and of course...she never heard about it. I am amazed at how many people do not know about Floyd before DSOTM. Oh well....at least they have the joy of discovering a...

    Are YOU the best musician in your band?

    I completely disagree. Vice Versa, IMO. I would MUCH rather have an average drummer (chops wise) that can keep solid time with killer other players than a killer drummer with average other musicians. But who am I to argue with Buddy :)

    Willie's Drummer, Paul English, died

    Just saw that on the news. I think he has been with him since the beginning, no?

    Are YOU the best musician in your band?

    Haven't you heard? Drummers aren't musicians......

    Where is the Annual Super Bowl Halftime Show Thread?

    I don't understand your logic? If people knew the future then maybe you would have a point but in reality it's kind of hard to rewind the clock and not watch something.

    Where is the Annual Super Bowl Halftime Show Thread?

    What? Why would I explain the cultural significance of this part of the show? That onus would be on you since you claim there is one. I claim there is no cultural significance of this so yes...I don't get it:
