for those of you with access to the Paladia channel, they are running a couple of really great shows this month:

- a retrospective of the Who's Quadrophenia complete with footage of Keith Moon passing out in the middle of their first show of the tour and being replaced with an audience member.

-  a bio of Jeff Lynne, including some of his many collaborations with the guys who made up the Traveling Wilburys.  The highlight for me was when they discussed out the surviving Beatles brought him in to work on an an unfinished John Lennon track.  He got to sit in a room with McCartney, Harrison, and Starr and listen to them tell Beatles stories (it was the first time in years the three of them had gotten together).

Heart was awesome, kravitz too. Kid rock should never be allowed to play a zep song again.   Both Jason bonham and Robert plant were crying at the end of stairway.

Down In A Hole Alice in Chains MTV Unplugged



One of my all-time favorite songs. I love the unplugged version even more. Layne Staley was awesome.

Indeed. Perhaps the Jim Morrison of the 90s. Loved Alice in Chains and the Unplugged album is incredible.

I can't really see any more credible candidate for the 90s Jim Morrison award than Kurt Cobain.

As what? Overrated? It's taken me nearly 20 years to be able to tollerate Nirvana, but in my mind, they were out classed by Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam. Down in a Hole, Rooster, Angry Chair, Got Me Wrong, Would? I'll take that any day over Nirvana.

I watched a youtube of Harry James doing a cover of Green Onions with Buddy Rich and it kind of reminded me of listening to Mick Jagger.  I was listening to XM last night, on one of the current channels, and a newer Stones song came up that initially sounded like the good old Stones tunes.  Then I realized the tune could have been almost anything they recorded over the past 30 years in that it followed the formula and Jagger sang it the same way he sings everything he's put out since 1982 or so.  He probably had a song about the Falklands that sounded like the song he did about Gulf War 1 that sounded like this one and a few others.  This Harry James tune was somewhat interesting, and I don't listen to too much Harry James, but it sounded like he was putting it through a formula.

I own the instrumental version of their first album. Not really my taste, but it's pretty good. There is a reason I have the instrumental version though: their vocalist sucks. Mediocre hardcore screams and overproduced cleans that sound like an eight year old boy being sodomized by a football coach.

Oooh, sounds fun - I always preferred the live versions of their songs. Most of the CDs my dad bought were the live recordings, and he played them whenever we were on a road trip... which was quite often.

Can the word "schmaltzy" be used for a Dropkick Murphys song?  If so, then Rose Tattoo qualifies.

I like every song they've ever done. But I love Devin Townsend, TesseracT, Scale The Summit, all the new super proggy metal bands.

I am. Who knows what sort of crazy crap I'd make if I were a musician like Townsend. I'd probably write power ballads about Lego or something.
