  2. Singer Eddie Money has past away.

    Saw him years ago at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Oregon along with The Outlaws, Santana and The Grateful Dead. What a show that was. Money was money...a great performer who sang some of the most memorable songs of the 70's.
  3. If you're into 60's rock music and you're on Facebook, there's a pretty good page you can subscribe to called "A Time Of Our Lives In The 60's." Lots of talk about the usual suspects but some rarities as well, like the music of oddball, one off bands like "The Tongues of Truth." If you've ever wondered what it would sound like to hear Keith Moon sing "Barbara Ann" with The Who, look no further.
  4. "After Brubeck: Paul Desmond 1968-1977"

    Here's Paul Desmond with Jim Hall on guitar playing "Bossa Antiqua and, at a lower register. Don't know about you, but to me, this sounds a whole lot like Stan Getz.
  5. "After Brubeck: Paul Desmond 1968-1977"

    That's an interesting thought. I can't imagine it would be worse and it could very well have been better. Not to denigrate Getz, but I think Desmond's style may have been better suited to the music.
  6. I spend most of my listening time lost in the '50's, but I did think Kamasi Washngton's "The Epic" was interesting. His piano player, Cameron Graves, is a monster.
  7. Miles Davis’ lost album “Rubberband” set for release

    There are some "Rubberband" cuts available on YouTube. I hate to say this, but Miles sounds like Herb Alpert.
  8. Play ball! 2019 MLB season thread

    Judge is heating up. Stanton should be back soon...hopefully ready to contribute. Starting pitching remains a concern. Severino? All things considered, it's a wonderful day in the neighborhood. Speaking of Judge, if you haven't seen this video, it's pretty funny:
  9. What Are You Watching

    I rewatched "Mad Men" a couple of months ago. Few things in life are as good as they were the first time, but this comes awfully close. Brilliant writing and a pitch perfect cast. Choosing from amongst "Mad Men", "The Sopranos" and "Breaking Bad" as the B.O.A.T. would be a tall order indeed. I'm also a big fan of "Dexter" although, admittedly, it's not everyone's cup of Joe, but my sleeper in the serialized television wars is "Six Feet Under".
  10. What we may be looking at here is a template for the future of the game. While Luck's chosen course of action would not apply to everyone, it very well might for those players who are considered stars and who are paid accordingly. At 29, Luck has made enough money to live multiple lifetimes. So, instead of continuing to ply his trade, knowing with certainty that nothing physically, mentally or financially beneficial can result, he just walks away. I say kudos to him for showing others that there are alternatives. Roger Goodell and his coterie of "head in the sand" apologists need to start looking at the possibility that this could become a trend, not a fluctuation. Luck's decision has potentially huge ramifications for the future of their sport.
  11. Placement of the cymbals.

    Cymbals placed higher are easier to splash or crash.
  12. Woodstock 50th Anniversary Releases

    CBS Evening News report from August 18, 1969:

  14. Bargain Audio Equipment

    While these won't come within hailing distance of replicating the sound of a home system, this little guy works pretty well if you're on the road or just wanting some background music. Soundcore Flare+ Portable Bluetooth Speaker by Anker, 360° Sound, IPX7 Waterproof, Bigger Bass, Ambient LED Light, 20-Hour Playtime, 4 Drivers with 2 Passive Radiators. This runs about $100. 810mGj0Z3xL._SL1500_.jpg
