Poignant and uplifting at the same time - there's a bit of universal truth in this...
I love that John Peel was turning people of all ages on to new music well into his senior years via a radio broadcast beloved the world over. He was open minded, loved music was curious and had good taste. We are not destined to shut our minds off as we get older, that's a choice we make out of laziness I think.
I'm confused. What does Kanye West have to do with music?
I remember both of those songs fondly. Great material and wonderfully performed.
Audept, I’m overcome with grief at the announcement.
Old white guys slagging off the music that young black guys make.
Meanwhile, Son House spins in his grave.
The positive flip side to my pointless rant is that somewhere in America tonight, a group of kids fueled by adrenaline will be performing in a basement for 30 people. ....And they will absolutely destroy the place, though it is unlikely that we’ll ever even know their names.
Sounds like a few shows I played on the d.i.y divebar circuit.
Exactly. Unfortunately, many of our strongest opinions are usually formed from ignorance.
A Flock of Seagulls was better than Led Zeppelin.

They could definitely fly faster.
I've just come across this thread for the first time and so sat down and read all 9 pages of it - I know, I need to get a life but until I do....
Spent half the time laughing at the posts and the other half mulling over the more piylosophical observations.
One did stand out, however:
In my book this is a beautiful example of contadiction of terms, love it!
I have to take exception to Wabash on that one. Yoko Ono sounds like an air-raid siren that is being tortured.
I'm not saying The Beatles suck or were not talented, I just don't like their music. Maybe a couple of songs but I really can't listen to them. Same with The Beach Boys.
And Led Zeppelin would have been better as an instrumental band. ("Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, I'm gonna leave you!") There's the door, Robert. Buh-bye.
Worst live band I've ever seen was the Beach Boys. As to Led Zeppelin, if I want someone with a high squeaky voice screaming at me, I'll annoy my wife. Making up is much more fun.
I saw the Beach Boys live in the mid 90s. They were really good! Maybe too good? Maybe lip synching?...... I think I like them for the Vintage car hobby and for just being fun. Good Vibrations is really a masterpiece if you sit back and listen to the complexity of the song. It was recorded by the Wrecking Crew, so go figure. Good production and creativity by Brian Wilson.
I saw Van Morrison when he was touring with Bob Dylan in the 90s. Van Morrison's band was great, but Van Morrison seemed to phone it in - he sounded fine but he seemed uninterested. On many of the songs, one of the band members (I think the trumpet player) would start the song, Van Morrison would walk on stage, sing, leave, then the band member would close the song. It was weird.
