    Portishead was just recently in Chicago. I am very angry I did not get to see this. This is the third today I've listened to their album third

    Article:
    Reunited alt-country pioneers The Jayhawks are taking wing again

    “Mockingbird Time” captures the classic Jayhawks vibe, with an easy fusion of rootsy warmth and pop sensibilities,
    there’s no getting away from The Jayhawks’ catalog. “Blue Earth” from 1989 was the introduction for a lot of people, and 1992’s “Hollywood Town Hall” came just as the alt-country scene was exploding, while 1995’s “Tomorrow the Green Grass” arrived as it was peaking.
    I learned about the jayhawks here in cyburbia.

    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I downloaded Coldplay's Mylo Xyloto this evening. I finished listening through it the first time. Meh... maybe a couple of interesting cuts.... "Paradise" being one of those.....
    Another wasted $10, I guess.


    EDIT: I've decided that "Charlie Brown" is acceptable.

    Haven't heard of Marshall Tucker in, well, forever. They used to be a favorite. May have to iTunes some there.

    Not a whole lot of issues with the top of the list, but I do have to say that there are some unfortunate omissions (Richie Sambora, Mick Mars, Zakk Wylde, Steve Vai) that would definitely be on my list. Also, I'd say that the 2nd guitarists in some bands (Izzy Stradlin in Guns N' Roses, Brad Whitford in Aerosmith, Kirk Hammett in Metallica) are often just as good as the "lead" guitarists, and are worthy of recognition.

    It's a damn shame that Chicago guitarist Terry Kath (RIP) was not on the Rolling Stone list. Jimi Hendrix pegged Kath as "the best". But, alas, Jimi died, Terry died, and Chicago morphed into a pop band without signature lead guitar work.

    Check out this Bob Seger video. One of my fave Seger tunes it mentions "Mackinaw City". The slides on the vid, early-on, show the Mackinac Bridge and a bar. That bar should be familiar to those who have spent some time up north......one of my favorite pub's. The Keyhole Bar. I spent many a day/evening at that bar.

    Here's my latest stack of CDs that I have at the office.....

    Revolver (The Beatles)
    The Decca Rock & Roll Collection (Various Artists, Rock & Roll On The Decca Label, Late 1950s, Early 1960s) (2 Discs)
    Wanted Dead Or Alive (David Bromberg)
    The Whole Love (Wilco)

    Guns N' Roses, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Beastie Boys, Donovan, the Faces, and Laura Nyro will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.

    I'm definitely excited about this year's lineup of inductees. I've always liked RHCP and the Beastie Boys have a few great songs I like as well. These bands' musical diversity is also impressive.

    And Guns N' Roses has always been one of my Top 3 favorite bands. A great balls-to-the-wall hard rock band that has also incorporated a lot of different sounds and styles into their music, with very powerful, hard-hitting lyrics to go along with the music. And I may be biased, but I don't think they wrote or released a bad (or even mediocre) song between 1987 and 1993.

    I'm also excited to see what takes place when GN'R does get inducted. First of all, which members will get inducted? So many people have been through the band. If it were me, I'd induct the original five (Axl, Slash, Duff, Izzy, and Steve), plus Matt, Dizzy, and Gilby. Gilby is the only one who's a maybe, since he only played on their covers album, The Spaghetti Incident, whereas Matt and Dizzy played on the Use Your Illusion records and The Spaghetti Incident. However, I'd argue that Gilby also toured with GN'R extensively and appeared in several videos after Izzy left the band.

    But will they all show up? Will Axl be a primadonna and not show up? Will it be awkward having both drummers and rhythm guitarists up there? Will Axl and Slash get into a fight? Or will they take it all in stride, out of respect for the music they made. Also, will they perform together? Will it lead to anything more beyond that. Who knows. Like a line from the song "Estranged", "I guess we'll have to wait and see."

    Since we like lists and parodies, I found this -
    Warning - be careful openning up the links to the songs at work because of either content/lyrics or volume

    25 subversive songs for Christmas

    A one of our favorite groups made the list -
    "Christmas in Heaven" — Monty Python (1983)

    Monty Python was always known for loopy songs that often pointed out the hypocrisies or the idiosyncrasies of society. In the film "The Meaning of Life," Graham Chapman sings a caustic song about the consumerism and commercialism that runs rampant during the holiday season that includes lyrics like: "There's great films on TV/"The Sound of Music" twice an hour/And ‘Jaws’ one, two, and three."

    What fun.

    I also like the duet between Stephen Colbert and Elvis Costello from a Christmas show a couple of years ago... it's been removed from YouTube - darn.

    An album from my youth...

    AIB a lyrics post....I loaded Blue Sky Mining by Midnight Oil to my iPod. Haven't heard it in years and I love this album and I'm only halfway through. It holds up well, IMO.

    Rj and I are the same age (or will be, after my birthday in May).... but I have never heard of anyone in music he listens to. The few he's tried to play for me since we met, give me raging headaches. I feel like my mother: "OMG, do you really think that is music???" Crap.

    As mentioned in another thread, I was watching Southland last night. For those who have never seen the series, the opening music in very haunting. For those who are interested, the piece is called Cancao do Mar. Check it out on Youtube
