Now I am a fan of Y&T and Dave Meniketti but let's not get carried away...like Earl does. How could he measure up against a real guitar legend like Pete Townshend, a player who is known for his incredible chord voicings and his amazing songs and riffs? Not to mention he introduced feedback into rock music! Dave or Pete, your choice? WHO is best, Meniketti or Townshend?? Let's see...

I have one Y & T album that I have never really listened to!  (Sorry Earl. :(  ).   A hard rocker friend of my husband's gave it to us as a wedding gift in the 80's.  I guess I should listen!  :lol:


I have to go with Pete, though.  His playing is classic.

Does Earl realize that because of Summertime Girls nobody can take Y&T seriously?

Funny that you say that.  That is the only song I know of from them.  To me it sounds like second-rate solo Sammy Hagar.  That song made it impossible for me to want to dig any deeper into their catalog.

Yep, it always sounded to me like they were doing a Sammy Hagar parody with the song.

I want to puke now.

YES!

J!!!!!!!

Pat is right.

I HATE "DOWN FOR THE COUNT!"

The band was completely ruined.

I'm so sad.  I'm still friends with the band.  
I hope they don't read this but yes.

Yesterday And Today could have been one of the greatest bands in the land.

You all know the story right?

Herbie Herbert.  Manager of a young Y&T and a young Journey who just signed Steve Perry.

Look it up.  I may not be 100 percent on in but I know my shit.

So you guys can always give me shit and make fun of me.

I will just return it three fold.  Duh!!!

Fuckk it.

So do you so-called real rockers know this story?

There was a coin flip between Journey and Y&T.  I think it was Schon and Meniketti.  Not sure who called it.

Anyway Y&T lost the coin toss.

So they were awarded the shit company A&M Records.

Journey got Herbie Herbert and CBS/EPIC RECORDS.  BOOM!  JACKPOT!!


I think Dave Meniketti is beyond a LEGEND!  I love him and I know him!!!!  

But come on Pat.  I'm not that stupid.

You can go back 14 years on here.

I'm a Pete Townshend MAN!

I've mentioned 2,112 times on here that if I could have dinner with two musicians it would have been NEIL AND PETE!!!! DUH!!!!


PETE RULES!!!!!

I was just talking to the Simon Phillips agent today Pat.

We had a great email conversation about Simon and the Pete stuff.
Nothing really comes close to all of that.

So Pat.

While you are obsessing of the Rolling Bones and The Deadles.

I'm taking to Eric Bloom, Wolf Hoffman and learning about Simon.

Yet I've met all of them Pat.

Live in your bubble of Rock And Roll.

I've lived it mate.

I've met most.

Wish I met more.

You know Pat.

To be serious for a second.

There is a big difference about human beings who really just live by their "WORDS."

Words are fuckking cheap and can be altered and changed.

Fuckk that Pat.

I am all about ACTIONS.  I put my money and my life experience to reality.

Don't give a fuckk about being judged for my outlandish opinions and thoughts.

If you don't like my point of view you know you can just put me on IGNORE!

I don't care.

This Forum has been a "Peaceable Kingdom" for some time now.  Boy I hate that song.

But hey,

I am always ready to debate.

Clearly and with intellectual prowess.  

Some of you probably think I'm "drinking again"  

So fuckkihg lame.

I could outdrink all of you and still stump you with rock and roll.

Blah Blah Blah.

As Alex said in LA.

Hey, I saw that live.  I WAS ACTUALLY THERE!!!

Were any of your Rush Trolls?  Fakes?  Frauds?

So funny!!!

Rip away on my musical intellect.

So many RUSH FAKE FANS HERE!

Pat!

How many times have you seen RUSH????


LOL

f**k the Rolling Stones and The Beatles.

RUSH RULES!!!!


Pete Townshend is another MORTAL GOD!


Pat!

Do you even have "IRON MAN" on cd?

Do you like Pete's solo albums?

They are better than many WHO ALBUMS!!!

Let's talk about it Pat.

Do you like the "Rough Mix" album.  Do you know who Ronnie Lane is?

My "Eminence Front" is now UP PAT!

I saw The Who and The Clash in 1982!  I was 14!!

What was your first concert in the UK????

Let me guess........


SEX PISTOLS!!!!


"FUCKK THIS FUCKK THAT FUCKK FUCKK IT ALL FUCKKER YOUR FUCKKING BRAT!  SHE DON'T WANT A BABY THAT LOOKS LIKE THAT!!!!"


LOL!!!!!!


TOMMY LEE BABY!!!!

I love drummers who hit the skins hard!!

Not a bunch of fuckking pussies like Ringo and Charlie!!!!!

Enjoy your boring pop!!!!


Signed,


MERRY GO ROUND!

It's so hard to say goodnight on here!  I know I'm all alone being a California Boy.

But I mean really Pat.

What am I supposed to prove to you?

I am nothing special in this world.

I have chosen my path and I am still walking on it like all living humans today.

My music knowledge is great.  Sure as hell ain't perfect.  I learn about music everyday.

I've seen over 800 concerts since 1982.

So what.

My buddy Dan Wall and you can Google him.  He's the true Legend.

He has seen over 1500 concerts.

He's 58.  I'm 52.

He has seen everything Pat.

Not Hendrix.  Or The Doors.

But he partied with Bon Scott.

This cat has seen so much and he is luckily one of my best friends!!!

But anyway.

Enjoy life Pat.

I hope you find that grocery market dream girl one day.

Love is Real.

I thought it was a complete joke after my brutal divorce exactly five years to the day!!

Yes Pat.  I got divorced November 26th 2015.  Well that's my current time.

Fuckk it.

Life does go on.

I never thought I would find TRUE LOVE.

My ex was a girl when I married her.

I have no regrets because I have two amazing daughters.

However, I have fallen in love with a WOMAN!

So we can go ROUND AND ROUND on here like RATT whenever you want.

I have the "FIREPOWER" shoot my musical knowledge out of my spewing mouth.  Is that being PC???

Judas Priest Pat.

Fuckk PC.

Someone called Tommy Lee a C+NT on here?

HAHAHA!

I bet that idiot on here wishes he had Tommy's cock and his bank account.

I will never understand so many of you fuckking RUSH FRUITS!

Yet I am the main target of bullying and teasing.

I LOVE IT!

BRING IT ON!

I will always be ready for a good clean fight.

I know the fuckking RULES!

73 is fuckking COOL.

ARE YOU?

Come on Tits.  Bring your best rock knowledge.

You people bore me.  LOL!

On that note.

Happy Thanksgiving.  Happy Holidaze!

I will compete and go head to head with anyone on here.

Come on Pat.

As The Cars would say...

"LET'S GO!"

I bet you hate The Cars you Black Metal Pussy!!!!  LOL!

I'm totally in LOVE PAT!

I'm "MOVING IN STEREO!"

RUSH ON BITCH!
