On the heels of Pat Torpey’s passing comes this. I always loved his playing.

I saw them this past June, and I’m glad I had the chance to do so. Eric said recently that when Pat said he was done, Eric would be also. Without a doubt, the tightest rock band I’ve ever seen. Pat came out front and greeted the audience with the question, “What’s shakin’?” - which was followed by an awkward response from the crowd. He feigned shock and then laughed at us. From what I’ve heard, he did this routinely on the tour - gotta love the attitude. RIP...

Everybody run over right now and read the thread on short scale vs long scale. The OP is confused as to what the difference is, beyond the obvious. The responses couldn't be more obvious.

Any chance The Outpost could mount a hostile takeover effort, armed with mudbuckers and vagina steamers?

But I was never a fan of the Spector Wall of Sound, Let It Be is the most non-descript Beatles album and All Things Must Pass gives me headaches with its echoy-y-y cavernous sound.

Do you have "Let It Be... Naked"?

My story on the Ramones goes as follows: As a teen, I read Rock Scene magazine religiously. To those unfamiliar with, it was a publication that largely chronicled the NYC club scene and bands at that time. The Ramones had been hyped heavily there, so when the album was released I ran out to EJ Korvettes (look it up) and purchased it. Leather jackets? They MUST be good! Well... From the second I dropped the needle, I was convinced it was some kind of cruel joke. Joey sounded like he had a swollen tongue, and I'd heard farts that lasted longer than their songs - which had the most bizarre subject matter I had ever heard. There was no lead guitar, per se - and in the 70s that was everything to me. I could not find one song on that album that stimulated me in any positive manner, so I ditched the album as quickly as humanly possible.

Pah, some of the morons even had a problem with the definition of electric in that question. They came up with all the upright players they could think of.  :o

That's right, I forgot about that.

The biggest problem with this particular thread was that the OP never articulated what he meant by "forefront". Are we talking cultural impact, stage presence, sonic signature or whatever? Without that clarification, it was destined to be a giant CF with whipped cream on top.

All I see is days of NAMM related posts. Will the dumb posts return soon? In the meantime, I'll be preparing: "Help me decide, P or J?" "Flats or rounds?" "Long or short scale?" And of course "my $49 Squier smokes your (Fill in the blank)." Will I fit in?

Most of the real estate has been occupied of late by a thread titled
“What bassist brought the electric bass into the forefront?”
The ensuing cacophony of cockamamie claptrap has been most predictable.
