  1. I suppose this isn't really rock, but I caught a Terri Hendrix and Lloyd Maines show here in CC on Friday night. So I've been listening to some of her albums. Love Terri, she's a wonderful singer, songwriter, and player. And Lloyd Maines is, in my opinion, a musical force, and something of an open secret in Texas music. Has played with, recorded with, and produced just about everyone in the Texas/Americana/alt country scene. And he's the father of Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks.
  2. Some of their early stuff is pretty interesting. This is probably the song that got me interested in following them.

    I think it's Cheadle too. While I like him, I don't see Miles when I look at his portrayal, at all. And I haven't seen the film, is it worth checking out?
  4. I'm very sorry to hear this. Like most of us, I enjoyed his contributions to our numerous discussions here and previously on the BNBB. He was a bit crusty, but also told some fascinating stories. Rest in Peace, Christiern.
  5. I've been in your building, that's a wonderful space. There was some sort of maze setup when I was there, my kids loved wandering through it. One suggestion - download Shazam on your phone, it would've helped you identify the tunes playing.

    Barbados, March 2019: The George Washington House in Bridgetown, where he stayed when he was 19, with his older brother Lawrence. It is the only country Washington ever visited outside of what is now the United States in his lifetime.
  7. Any *early* Pink Floyd fans? (67-72 era)

    If you'd seen them on Thursday in NYC, you would have seen Roger Waters join them for this:

  9. Any *early* Pink Floyd fans? (67-72 era)

    Your sarcasm is noted. It's not about credit. It's about common experience. I still cannot imagine someone having come of age in the 60s/70s/80s/90s etc without having at least heard the name "Pink Floyd", a band that has sold over 250 million albums worldwide (one of only 8 artists of all time that has done this). Apparently there's at least one person out there who hasn't.

    Apologies if I annoyed you, though I see nothing that is offensive in my post. I'm still shocked shrdlu has never heard of Pink Floyd. I can understand not having heard their music(which wasn't the basis of my post anyway), but to not even have heard the band's name is odd to me. I'd heard of Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, etc., LONG before I'd ever hear any of their music, or became interested in jazz in general. And I'd heard of Hank Williams and Patsy Cline long before I ever listened to any country music, or heard any of their music specifically. So that concept is just foreign to me, as annoying as it may be to a few amongst us.

    I have a hard time believing this. You literally had never heard of Pink Floyd at all? Until a niche DJ did a remix that wasn't anywhere near as much of a hit as the original song, that most people likely have no idea even exists in the first place? Really?? If you were at all awake and aware in the 70's (and 80's) you had to have at least heard of Pink Floyd, and likely heard one or two of their radio "hits".

  13. Record stores

    Thanks, John. I'll be moving up your way this summer, so I"m ready to start learning about the music opportunities in the area. Our house is 30 or so minutes from the city, so I don't know how often I'll be able to go shopping, but hopefully between the city, Princeton, and a train hop to NYC, I'll be set for a bit, music-wise (both live and collecting). And thanks Niko, for the Long in the Tooth rec. I'll be sure and check them out!

    He'll be ok - time is on his side, yes it is.
  15. Record stores

    I used to go to Sound Exchange, but haven't been there in years. Glad to know it still exists. Anybody recommend music shops in Philly? I know Princeton Record Exchange (and a place in Voorhees), but don't really know Philly stores in the city itself. I need to get spun up on them moving forward. I went to a small but halfway decent one near 3rd & Church many years ago, but I doubt it's still there, and don't recall the name.
