So, my brother graciously brought over some CDs for me to upload to Itunes (VH1, VHII, Women& Children First, Diver Down, 1984, F*CK, Crue, GNR, Tesla etc).

....99% of the music I heard before and liked the music etc....

but the Boston CD was aweseome start to finish. All songs I liked.


I realized this was a good band, but didnt' realize these were all on one 'album".

Good stuff. thanks Big Bro!:clap:

Must be the first album? Yeah, pretty much every one of them was a hit, they weren't ever able to duplicate the success they had with that one. Oh, and 1984 sucks, send that one right back to him, that was by far the worst Van Halen album ever.

:D :hmmm:
Fair enough. but from a guitar lick standpoint (realize I grew up with the hair metal genre), I really like it. Agree, it's not as in your face as V1/II, Fair Warning (even though FW wasn't received as well) etc....but I like the "House of Pain" lick; "TopJiimmy" and overall composition of "girl gone bad" and "I'll wait" (even though I dont' care for the synthesizer)

I'll give you "I'll wait", that wasn't bad, but the godawful pieces of crap that are "Jump" and "Hot for Teacher" got way more airplay here than they ever deserved, those songs never should've been recorded to begin with.

that's awesome. thanks for sharing! :thumb: Fast forward a little, and Pearl Jam's "Ten" had a slow spot on the 'tape ' (.....I was cool because I had an 'auto-reverse' for you young bucks) between "Oceans" and "Porch" where to this day, when I hear it on the radio I'm surpirsed it doesn't jump to the nesxt song!

I'm inspired to learn a few new songs on the guitar. I've been in a funk for a few years etc.

yeah. While I pretty much enjoy most of their collection, I have a few friends who don't etc. I can see why etc; they go fro 'rock' to 'blues' to acoustic" etc very quickly. Plus,I think Plant had a lot to do with it. Much like James Hetfield of Metallica you either loved/liked the sound, or you despised/puked in your soup based on the sound etc.


I think some of Paiges solo's were sloppy (if I may be so bold; "Heartbreaker" as an example).

But I liked their bluesy When the Levee Breaks, Rock n Roll etc..and acoustic-esque gems like Lemon song, Rain Song, Going to California, Rain Song Bron Yr Aur

Finding Brad Delp's body...

As the smoke cleared, the scene within the bathroom slowly came into view. Two charcoal grills perched among the bathroom fixtures, their metal tops emitting heat waves. On the floor beside them lay the body of a man, his head resting on a pillow. A note paper-clipped to the neck of his shirt told them what they needed to know: "Mr. Brad Delp. Jai une ame salitaire. I am a lonely soul.

I got to see them twice. Once in KC after Don't Look Back was released. I still have some pictures from that show laying around.

The second time was unplanned. I was in Vegas in '96 for a dart tournament and got knocked out early. A buddy was with me and we looked in the entertainment mag that was in the hotel room. Boston was playing one night only at the old Aladdin....on my birthday no less. So we went to pick up some tickets at the last minute. Great show.

I also had their first album on 8-track and remember it changing tracks in the middle of Hitch A Ride.

I love Boston. They remind me of my best friends brother that died quite a while ago. Mid to late 70s we were little kids (10-12), he would take us for rides in his 67 Camaro with with Boston cranked. Every time you would see him he had Boston playing. Great times and it always takes me back. Long Time, the build up is awesome!

It was pretty damn awesome.

We had all the "older" 60's music to listen to, which was new for us, and all those bands were still making new music. Then we had all the great bands that came along from the later 60's to later 70's......Yes, ELP. Aerosmith, Jethro Tull, Steely Dan.....that's a long list.....and in the later 70's we had the beginnings of punk/new wave. I'll never forget the first time I listened to Elvis Costello. My musical tastes were changed forever. Then there was Devo, The Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Ramones.

And I didn't even mention MoTown, R&B and funk. Marvin Gaye, Sly and the Family Stone, Tower of Power, Kool and the Gang, Earth, Wind and Power.

Sly Stone is the coolest guy to ever walk the Earth.

Yeah, the 60's and 70's were a great time for music.

Given the gist of the lyrics, I assume the CCCP shirt wasn't about the Combined Community Codec Pack. Maybe I'm wrong about them, but it's a bit depressing if I'm right. I'm not trying to make this a political thread and politics has never stopped me from listening to good music, I'm just annoyed by it.

I thing there are a bunch of different ways to wear the CCCP shirt. To name four:

Advocacy of socialism (USSR was never communistic in practice. If you want to support communism, go to Marx)

Wearing the spoils of victory over your conquered enemy as a sign of total ownership.

Kind of a campy 1950's-Soviet-industrial-suck-the-life-out-of-living thing

It's just a shirt that looks cool.

I thing there are a bunch of different ways to wear the CCCP shirt. To name four:

Advocacy of socialism (USSR was never communistic in practice. If you want to support communism, go to Marx)

Wearing the spoils of victory over your conquered enemy as a sign of total ownership.

Kind of a campy 1950's-Soviet-industrial-suck-the-life-out-of-living thing

I blame Obama.

Fair enough. Yeah, maybe it's completely meaningless or maybe it means something other than the way I took it. :thumb:

BTW, who knew they make a Pol Pot shirt? :shrug:

Red's not really my color though.

Fake rebels wear Che Guevara t-shirts, because they just want people to think they're cool. Real rebels wear Pol Pot t-shirts.

What's your problem? If you think it's trivial, that's fine. I'm not asking for your endorsement or even for you to care. It's sickening to me to see grown millionaires wearing CCCP or Che shirts, that's all. Are your eyes really so sensitive?



Not at all. My eyes aren't really bleeding, I was sort of exaggerating. I just hate seeing that kind of stuff pop up in the lounge cause before you know it a perfectly innocent thread turns into turd slinging.

No offense was intended.

OK, no problem. I tried to make it clear that I wasn't trying to make the thread political, fwiw.

Yes, you did. My post came off more serious than it was meant to be. I should have incorporated a smiley or something.

John Baglo Kicks Ass!! Here's his one man band cover of Foreplay/Long Time. He's got a couple of co-conspirators doing the vocals, but he plays all the instruments. He's also got a vid of himself playing Led Zeppelin's Moby Dick, complete with drum solo, on his myspace page.

You could have a four way split screen for the back-up vocals alone. But a cool vid none the less
