So, what have you been listening to lately?
« on: February 08, 2018, 11:49:45 AM »
I ran across Nightwish kind of by accident while listening to something else on YouTube and gave them a try.

I like them a lot! The current singer is Dutch and she has a terrific voice. The bass player often uses a Buzzard, which is interesting to see.

Why did Salvador Dali cross the road?
Clocks.

Robert Palmer, Clues



Before that, Santana 4, including their CD from the Montreaux Jazz Festival.  Great listening!

Here's a Canadian band that's a favorite of mine...Big Wreck.  Great bassist too.   Insane guitarist that might not get the recognition he should being from Canada.

Andy Rehfeldt is always good for a laugh.

Contrary to what James Bond says, a good Gibson should be stirred, not shaken.

Riverside from Poland have been a recent favorite lately. One of the best keyboardists I've heard in years with some wicked B3 tones.

This thread inspired me to load up Popa Chubby, starting with "Sweet Goddess of Love and Beer."

If you guys aren't already playing this in your sets, you need to start.  Great tune!

Years ago we played at a Hells Angels party and Popa Chubby was also scheduled to play there. He watched our entire show sitting on a flightcase in the wings.
Seemed like a relaxed guy.

Seems like he would fit right in at that kind of gig!

 I've been rediscovering Hawkwind

 they played locally so I blagged my way in for old times sake and was pleasantly surprised, the young lad they have playing bass for them is really proper good, like Cliff Burton good. Also the support band lunched it so Hawkwind  did a whole acoustic set as an opener

 Since then Ive been working my way through their back catalogue on my commute. its really cool listening to stuff I was into as a teenager with my present much more sophisticated musician/producers ears. There's a lot of really clever bass stuff I never appreciated before

Hawkwind - after decades where no one took them seriously and they were discarded as Silver Machine one hit wonders - are finally being reappreciated in recent years. It's a general trend, so you're cool for once!
It ain't no country until Dave sez it is!

Guitar player is a dead ringer for "Highlander" Kenny.
