The guy in the middle looks just like "Jake" from 2 1/2 men, I swear!
Have you ever seen them in conceert?.... Absolutely freakin' amazing to watch Kieth Emerson play all of his keyboards!..... Not to mention how much music three guys could produce in a live setting.
Never got to see them, but yes it is amazing that 3 guys can pump out that much insanely great music live. That's not easy to do. Gotta give credit to their sound crews as well.
Speaking of insane music live, if anyone has a chance to see these guys, do yourselves a favor. They'll be in Jax in April. This was performed recently, but released in 1992.
Get the FUNK out.
Tool released this catchy little tune in 1996. These kids do a cover. Wow! Who are these kids?
Take that, Vanilla Ice
Joe Walsh explains how he wrote "Life's Been Good".
When I was working at a mortgage company in Winter Park in the early '90's, our receptionist's sister was dating his bass player. Joe had a gig in Cocoa at what is now Coastal Florida Sports Park in the baseball "stadium". Our receptionist told us about Joe's legendary pregame preparations, which included an entire bottle of Absolut vodka. We were invited back stage for the show. When we got behind the stage, Joe was staggering drunk barely able to stand up. I was wondering how in the hell he was going to be able to do the show. Right before showtime, he went back into his trailer, and when he came back out, he was fine. 5 ft 4 guys should not be crushing an entire bottle of vodka before going to work.
Clapton and Bonamassa
I put a personal moratorium on Stairway about 25 years ago cuz I'd heard it way too many times. Leave it to the Wilson Sisters to knock it out of the park. Ann can still bring it on vocals, and Plant, Page and Jones were loving it.
Old school SNL fans might find this amusing. Because humor does belong in music
From the seventies, the only band that mattered…
And the eighties, the only band that muttered…
One of the best bands of the nineties and every decade since…
Winton Salem power pop trio, Let's Active was one of few great eighties power pop bands. RIP drummer Sara Romweber who just passed away a month or so ago.
Winston Salem also produced the dB's. First saw them at a fraternity party at UF around 82 or 83. Saw them many other times backing up REM on tour.
More eighties southern jangle pop from Marietta GA's Guadalcanal Diary. Don't know how these guys (and that girl) never blew up.
The Connells from Raleigh.
I could listen to bands from 1980s Georgia and North Carolina for days on end without running out of great music.
I hate that I'm saying this, but Athens had a couple good ones.
