If you don't keep up though all that music just comes crashing down on you." Very well written and entirely true.
  2. All from ATWAS. Bastille Day Anthem 2112 Bytor Working Man
  3. Disco, give Liquid Tension Experiment a try if you have not so yet. Many consider a Change of Season to be DT's best epic. The remainder of that disc is covers but still worth checking out. From Awake, I recommend Scarred. from Images and Words, - Under a glass moon has an unbelievable solo in it.
  4. Steely Dan, August 12, Charlotte NC I think this will be the fourth time I have seen them. One of my all time faves.
  5. QUOTE (Midway Hawker @ May 16 2006, 06:51 PM) I went to Eric Johnson/Joe Satriani on Friday night in Reno. The Reno Hilton theater was NOT a great place to see a show. All booths and tables unless you got a "pit" ticket where they had regular chairs. We were in a booth. The sound was REALLY BAD! Eric Johnson was really bad. When I saw him back in '91 or '92, he was awesome! This show he didn't even play much of his own material. It just didn't sound good. And the songs he did play he improvised so much that they were almost not recognizable. Joe Satriani was pretty good. He's incredible with the sounds he can produce, but over-all his show was just ok. I enjoyed his old stuff better. 5 songs off of Surfing with the Alien.. Saturday night I saw Richard Jeni in the same theater.. He is F***ing HI-Larious! That was a great show. Also, I think I set my own personal record on Saturday for number of drinks consumed without getting sick. Thats suprising the EJ played poorly but I have read the same elsewhere. Some are blaming it on equipment?? I don't know but all the times I have seen EJ were unbelievable. I will also say his new disc Bloom is good, but not up to Ah via musicom standards.

One of the closest I can think of is in the song Heresy, "All the crap we had to take...." But I don't really consider that much a curse word If you want to hear a real curse word from a member of Rush, try " Don't Care" from Victor on for size. Oh yeah, I for one like dog years and find the song to be more appealing and more relevant the older I get!
  7. QUOTE (Milton Banana @ May 14 2006, 03:45 PM) going to see Spock's Beard tonight at Ridglea Theatre in Ft. Worth! General admission so I'll get there early to be nice and close. I'll miss not seeing Neal Morse singing, but whadaya gonna do? Hope you had a great time. Yeah, the beards just not the same without Neal, but I would still go check then out too. I saw some of the setlists from a few of the shows and it looked like a good mix.
  8. The Glass Prison and Panic Attack will be included in the forthcoming Gigantour DVD per Mike Portnoy. So will Cemetary Gates!!! source

I'm going mosty to see Icarus Witch. You better double check that Icarus Witch is opening. I just walked in the door from Yngwie and it was Orange Sky opening. I saw tour dates that made me think that Orange Sky was the opener for all the dates. It's Icarus Witch and Orange Sky opening. I bought the tickets through Icarus Witch and first heard about them opening for Yngwie from their bassist when I met him. Cool, I am glad to be wrong in this instance. I am checking out IW on myspace right now and am liking what i am hearing.
  11. Just in from seeing Yngwie Malsteen at The Orange Peel in Asheville NC. The peel is an awesome venue and I was second row the majority of the show. In all honesty, I have never been a huge fan of Yngwie. Last night I learned that Derek Sherinian ( ex DT/ current planet x member) was playing the keys this tour so I deceided to go. The opener was Orange Sky, who are from Trinidad. These guys were better than expected with a metal/reggae vibe. Kinda a Bad Brains sound, but with much better vocals. ( not a poke at the Brains but this guy really has an excellent voice ) As expected Yngwie ripped it a new one. It really was quite impressive, in particular his acoustic work and classical material. I do not own any Yngwie and only recognized his covers of the Star Spangled Banner and Hendrix's Red House. I had never seen Sherinian live before and while he was never really given free reign to rip, his solos were killer. Edited to say that I was fortunate enough to meet Derek Sherininan and have a very short conversation.

  13. QUOTE (kazzman @ May 5 2006, 04:08 PM) Hell just froze over.... I bought Train of Thought and Octivarium and I'm loving both of them. Glad to hear it! ToT is probably the overall "heaviest" DT disc and I really like Honor thy Father and Stream of Conciousness. Octavarium is also quite good.

    QUOTE (paganoman @ May 5 2006, 11:59 AM) In Pharmacology, all drugs have two names, a trade name and generic name. For example, the trade name of Tylenol also has a generic name of Acetaminophen. Aleve is also called Naproxen. Amoxil is also call Amoxicillin and Advil is also called Ibuprofen. The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin. I read that the new active ingredient in Preparation-H is a compound called Mycraxaburnin.
  15. on a more obscure note... The intro guitar riff of Ozric Tentacles "Myriapod" has always sounded to me very similar to that of Megadeths "Holy Wars". I consider that its more of a coincidence musically, rather than a ripoff.

  17. QUOTE (the_masked_drummer @ Apr 3 2006, 10:18 AM) QUOTE (Larks @ Apr 3 2006, 09:07 AM) oh yeah it will be a kick ass dvd!(little dissapointet they didnt play TTT) 6DOIT with full orchestra. what more can i ask? U shoulda seen take the time back when they were young and hungry. It just aint the same any more. The '93 Japan video kinda captures it, but there's been nothing like seeing them do it live from about '92-'94. To me, once Kevin Moore quit, they lost an element that's never been replaced. Derick was great and Jordan rules, but they just had this chemistry when Kevin was in the band. I don't know if anyone agrees with that, but there was nothing like seeing DT play Metropolis pt1 back when they first got James Labrie in the early nineties IMHO. I have read that that it was the entire second set and encore that the orchestra performed for. In general I don't go for the orchestra/ band collaboration but am curious what this sounds like. Especially Matropolis Part 1.

  19. QUOTE (1-0-0-1-0-0-1 @ Mar 3 2006, 10:01 AM) QUOTE (Modest Man From Mandrake @ Mar 2 2006, 04:44 PM) Who give a shit about his political views. His playing kicks major ass. Agreeing or disagreeing with his political mindset is not what this thread is about. Exactly. Although you do not quote me there is little doubt that you are referring to me. I basically said that I do like and am a fan of Ted Nugent, regardless of his views and affiliation. I put in that statement in attempt to separate/differentiate myself from the poster ( Cygnus) above me who said "'I've been a Nugent fan since back in the Amboy Dukes days. He does put on a good show. He is a proud American and Takes no shit from the "Liberal weenies". Last several years music has taken a back stage to his promotion of his other love...Hunting. He is in his third term on the board of directors of the NRA and uses is Celebrity to promote 2nd Amendment rights. I have no problem listening to music made by people with differing or conservative view points. I begrudge no one for any of their thoughts. Regardless of whether I agree with Ted Nugent, I do admire his outspokenness and more importantly his actions, as he does a lot of charitable work. In closing let me tell you how much I appreciate you pointing out to me what this thread is about. Unfortunately, you missed the point as this thread is about the NEW Ted Nugent disc coming out. At least in my post I made some reference to the new disc. Rattle my snake.
  20. Ted Nugent was tearing it up from the mid 70's to very early 80's and was one of my favorites in my pre/early teen years. In particular I like Paralyzed and Stranglehold. Besides he is the only musician I know of who has incorporated the word Tang into at least two songs.... Can't say I agree at all with him on his political views or appreciate his affiliation with the NRA. I do completely agree with his killing to eat mentality, though. In regards to his new disc, let me know if its good but I think he ran out of ideas musically along time ago.
  21. A really good and free starting point for DT and many other progressive groups is www.progarchives.com , they have a good representation of DT material posted here
  22. QUOTE (Disco @ Feb 15 2006, 06:00 PM) OK, now I've heard a lot about DT on this board and even downloaded their version of Tears (a bit over emoted in my opinion). Following the leads given to me by others in this thread I checked out what people had said about Dreams From a Memory on the UK site of Amazon. It's not good news. There are two (we've got to admit it) wonderfully written reviews that make me fear to tread in DT's waters. Here they are... Not checking out DT because of what those two folks said would be a prime example of musical cowardice. You can always find someone with something negative to say about anything. I like DT because of the extended soloing and their level of musicianship. I could do with a little less singing and drama from LaBrie. Lyrically they are above average but IMO nowhere near the caliber of Rush. I would say give it a shot, what do you got to lose? I would recommend Images and Words, first because its my fave, but secondly should you think this stuff sucks, it would probably be the easiest one to trade or sell. In closing, I would say one of the worst things about immediately writing off the group is that the band members are very active recording in many different progressive music side projects, some of which I like better than DT like Liquid Tension Experiment, Transatlantic and Neal Morse.
