Re: Post Punk

x-post from bookface it's not too surprising, esp after seeing the footage of Mark on stage a few months ago, but that doesn't make his passing hurt any less. by some accounts he was an irascible curmudgeon who could get really nasty at times, but he left behind an incredible legacy of music. i onl...

Re: Malcolm Young, 1953-2017

Malcolm Young was the rock solid rhythm guitarist and the driving force behind AC/DC. Of the Young brothers, it was Malcolm who called the shots. I love AC/DC’s recorded music, especially the 1970s up to Back in Black (and the three songs off For Those About to Rock – and sporadic tracks after that)...

Re: Bruce Springsteen Plans Intimate Broadway Residency

Some fans say that there were electric versions of the Nebraska songs recorded in studio with the ESB back in '82 around/after the time Bruce recorded the 4 track demo (eventually released on Nebraska album) versions. But the thing is, many/most/all? of the Nebraska songs have had electric versions...

Re: Bruce Springsteen Plans Intimate Broadway Residency

Thanks, but no thanks. Neil Young knows how to do solo, and his music works well that way. Bruce needs E Street to make the magic happen. And I say this as a lifelong Bruce fan, who actually felt rather guilty when my appreciation for the Truckers surpassed my appereciation for Bruce. 2005 Springst...

Re: Bruce Springsteen Plans Intimate Broadway Residency

Absolutely hated Reason to Believe that year. Too much bullet mic and over the top delivery. He found the magic (pun intended ) with that tune in 2007 with the rocked out, kick ass, bluesy version. I thought D&D tunes were pretty good, especially the title track, Reno, Long Time Comin', and Black C...
