Don't be mad at me, Helen... by canaveralgumby on 31 July 2004 9:29am
 
....but I saw Rush last night.

I have seen Yes and Rush within 2 months of each other.

"Lucky, lucky bastard!"

YOU SUCK!

Jeezum criminy! What's next for you? An Emerson Lake and Palmer reuniuon with Bill Bruford's Earthworks as an opening act?

Ya gotta stop.

:)

Oh God, I'd LOVE to see Bill Bruford! Mostly they stick to touring in Europe where they're appreciated...

I did see Billy Cobham at the old Musician's Exchange in Ft. Laud. a few years ago. That man's scary. A human shouldn't physically be able to play like that.

No, seriously, the next big show coming our way is Weird Al.....

I love Weird Al. Have you heard his polka version of "Owner of a Lonely Heart"?
 
Re: Don't be mad at me, Helen... by canaveralgumby on 5 August 2004 5:36am
 
Yes, I'm afraid I have.

1. What's the best concert you've ever been to?

2. Do you agree with me that Carl Palmer never could play in time?

3. Do you think we should continue this thread on our own email and stop taking up space on this message board?

:^D



 
Re: Don't be mad at me, Helen... by Helen on 5 August 2004 2:02pm
 
It is "Blathering On'-- so let me answer your queries...

1. Yes, the Union tour. But then there was Black Flag in 1983... but then there was Jimmy Cliff and Fela... then there was Ani Difranco in 1993...Wynton Marsalis in 1991...The Kodo Drummers circa 1990 and 1993... The Ramones... DAMMIT...Jeezuz you would make me decide wouldn't you?
The worst concert? I saw BOSTON of all bands back in the late eighties. BOY did that suck!
2. Carl Palmer was not the strongest drummer. Bill Bruford and Stewart Copeland are by far two of the best. Agreed?
3. I like taking up space. :)

Linda, thanks for the info. I have heard of this band and I've never taken the time to check them out.

The other drummer form hell, as I mentioned, is Billy Cobham. Try "Birds of Fire" by Mahavishnu Orchestra or his solo album "Spectrum."

***

The best concert I've ever been to is ususally the last one, you know? The ones that stand out in my mind:
* King Crimson (with the double line-up)
* Steve Winwood (1984 or 5)
* Eric Clapton (1986-ish???) w/opening act The Robert Cray Band - Clapton's band consisted only of himself, Phil Collins, Nathan East and Greg Phillinganes and that was IT. Best I'd ever seen him.
* Primus and Fishbone (1987) We were definitely too old for that show, but those were 2 groups of amazing musicians. Les Claypool RULES!
* YES: 2 yrs. ago, then this Spring, then Union 1991. (Saw them 3 other times that do not stand out in my head.)
* Rush, last week, swear to God.
* I can't remember the year, but I saw Chicago fairly intact, after Terry Kath's death, but with Danny Seraphine (an unsung great drummer of all time) and Peter Cetera (an unsung really good bass player, IMHO). They ROCKED when I saw them, so it must have been a long time ago!
* "An Evening w/Ann & Nancy Wilson" unplugged. Just the 2 of them on stage. Ann is so good, I cried.

I'd LOVE to see the Kodo Drummers! I saw on t.v. once where this dude played with the elder instructor, who was it...oh, yeah, it was Michael Palin!
