Haha nice cap BTW.. Henry's podcast (which he does one like very 4 months when bored) was all about meeting ozzy and hanging out with sabbath.. really good listen.(Contains salty language)
That's what I've got - very little I've looked for and haven't found. Wife has to have Prime for work anyway, and while a with-commercials version is free with that, I'll pay 8 bucks to not hear the same ad 3 times in a row, 4 times an hour.
I would agree with that. The first couple Chicago albums were great until they got to the sappy Peter Cetera ballad era then I lost interest.Sadly, most of them. Chicago for one. Up to the fifth album, then I couldn’t care less.
This is the story for most bands entering the 80's from the 70's...... The first couple of albums were killer funky blues. After the Bloodshot album the next couple of albums were just OK. After the Hotline album the rest of the albums sucked. They were more successful but had went commercial and was not the same band. I saw them live a few times before they went commercial and they were the best live band I had ever seen.
My tastes have shifted quite a lot in just the last year alone .I find it odd that one would select against growth and maturity beyond the music of their youth. Scientific studies be damned. There is no way an artist should ever be satisfied with the choice of static influence and appreciation. To not delve into anything beyond that which was touched during ones hormonal shifts ... bizarre.
This is contrary to artistic growth ... the results of which would be quite the musician, I’m sure.
Yeah me too , and my current GF has turned me on to a lot of music as well .I more likely evolved to where I enjoy hearing some things that didn't do it for me in my younger years. Most of the stuff from back then I still like although it may have shifted out of the top spots for the above reasons. I have been making an attempt to listen to music that a stubborn-minded self might not otherwise seek out. I've overall been pleasantly surprised at how much stuff I actually enjoy hearing that may have been under (or over) the radar in my younger years. That's a good thing, I think. I don't like a musical rut.
These old bands are starting to look silly up there to me ..Couple for me :
Rush - after Neil’s passing it just makes me too sad to listen to them anymore .
Chicago - my favourite band until I saw their last concert . I had already been a bit put off by Chicago after they ousted Danny Seraphine . I had seen them a couple times with Tris Imboden and he is a fine drummer . The current lineup is a joke . Walfredo Reyes Jr the former percussionist is now the drummer and he just can’t cut the gig IMHO. Keith Howland the guitar player is a miserable cuss and just looks like he is collecting a pay cheque . Lou Pardini the second keyboard player made multiple gaffs and clinkers and butchered the one song he sang . The three remaining original members are still great but they cannot save the band anymore .
I found Steven Wilson when I think DanRH posted a Porcupine Tree video several years ago. A little late, but I got prettY much everything PT and solo, and love it all.Skynyrd and Rush . Hope I never tire of Kansas , Lately I’m in a Steven Wilson listenfest pretty much a whole month now .
J. Geils . I agree . How to maintain that sort of intensity and not die ? You can't .I would agree with that. The first couple Chicago albums were great until they got to the sappy Peter Cetera ballad era then I lost interest.
Also the J. Geils band. The first couple of albums were killer funky blues. After the Bloodshot album the next couple of albums were just OK. After the Hotline album the rest of the albums sucked. They were more successful but had went commercial and was not the same band. I saw them live a few times before they went commercial and they were the best live band I had ever seen.
